Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner

I think I've mentioned it before that I'm not super into eyeliners. I've used the same brand and product since I first learnt how to apply it. I've recently been feeling like I want to branch out and try new things. I went out with the intention of buying a gel liner, to try it out and see if it is something I could potentially see myself using a lot more. We've all seen videos where girls apply seamlessly flawless gel liner; well I want that!

I picked up this Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner out of my local Superdrug, also picking up a Maybelline Great Lash Mascara because 'branching out' and all that. It was really the first one I noticed, and I wasn't all that bothered about the brand to be honest.

My first thought was that the pot is so cute. The base has a frosted glass effect with Maybelline written in a metallic silver finish, while the screw on lid has the same silver colour. It reminds me of like an ink pot? I can see it have a quill dipped in on the set of Harry Potter!

I did not use the brush that came with it to apply the product. I was gifted a very thin liner brush that bends at a slight angle for my birthday; a better reason for me to buy this liner other than just wanting to try it out). However, I did use the brush to produce the swatches and it looks like the brush is capable of both thick and thin lines.

Th shade I picked up was 07 Black Chrome, which is like your typical black gel liner but with tiny little silver shimmers in it. The formula is very thick but smooth at the same time. It was very easy to drag across my top lash line, I only needed to use a small amount of product.

I am very impressed with this gel liner and it did not break the bank like I expected it to. It was £7.99 which is cheap considering how good the product is.

How do you feel about gel liners - love them or hate them?

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…
