Ultimate Summer Nails

I made the decision to not have my nails professionally done before I go on holiday, instead I want to save the money for a splurge in Duty-Free. I'm just going to do my own french tipped nails, so that they are no fuss and I don't have to lug about ten bottles of nail polish away with me. This has led to my hunt for the perfect summer nail colour, which I think I have found!

I picked up two new Rimmel nail polishes on offer as 2 for £5. Rimmel have some of the nicest polishes in the drugstore which are great quality. The majority of the polishes I own are from Rimmel because I like them so much.

The first one I picked up was part of the Rita Ora collection and is called Bestival Blue. I originally thought that it would be quite similar to Too Cool to Tango, but it turns out that they are very, very different. Bestival Blue is a medium-deep cornflower blue creme nail polish. I has very good pigmentation and is completely opaque after two thinner coats.

The second that I chose was Rose Libertine which is just part of the normal 60 seconds Super Shine line. I own lots of pink coloured nail polishes but this one just spoke to me! Rose Libertine is a warm toned pinky-peach colour. It's pigmentation is not as good as Bestival Blue and required an extra coat to reach the same opacity.

It's not just that they are amazing colours on their own, but I think that they would also look great worn at the same time. I think that these will be the only two polishes that make it across the Atlantic with me. 

Which is your favourite?

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…
