Essie Nail Polish in 'Cozy in Cashmere'

I went looking for a new nail polish that was nude or a bit toned down for this season. I recently had to cut off all the tips of my nails as they were too damaged through peeling and breaking. I usually go to Barry M, but there was nothing there that was calling to me. So I need up in front of Essie, which I wouldn't usually buy unless it was from Tk Maxx.

I picked up Cozy in Cashmere, which is a very pretty greige colour. There are tiny little blue reflex shimmers in the polish which gives it extra dimension. The shimmers are hard to notice when on the nails, but you can clearly see them in the bottle, or if you put a top coat over the top.

I, personally, am not one for matte nails so I have put a top coat over. If I did have to were a matte nail polish it would be this. It's easy to apply and the formula is not as thick and gloopy as other matte nail polishes I have tried.

Cozy in Cashmere is a really nice colour to pick up for the transition between Autumn and Winter. It's very colour appropriate for both seasons.

What's your favourite nail polish for this time of year?

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!

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…
