Festive Cranberry Face Mask

I feel that the older you get the more you anticipate and look forward to the holiday season. There is just such an indescribable feeling when Christmas stuff starts to appear in store displays, and I must admit, I start to go a little mad. To me, holiday season prep begins in October. I'm not starting my official holiday gift shopping until nearer to the end of November, so I popped into my local Lush store to get a pick me up. There was so much holiday stuff there that I went a bit mental just smelling everything. I picked up a couple of things, but I want to focus on one item in particular. 

I picked up the Cranberry Festive Face Mask. A Lush face mask is a staple in my opinion as they just feel os nice and luxurious. Since the cranberry one is limited edition for the run up to Christmas, I thought that it would be nice to try it before it finishes. It smells a lot of cranberries (duh!), but it also reminds me of like an my grans old-lady soap, which was rose scented. I am the worse at describing scents but that is what it reminded me of, a really strong floral scent. It is a nice rosy pink colour and is chocked full of cranberry pieces. The argan oil makes the mask feel very moisturising, which is amazing for harsh winter weather.

While I do love this product I don't think I would repurchase it. I like that it's limited edition for christmas, as there are so many other Lush masks to try.

Do you think that the Festive Cranberry Face Mask is for you?

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…
