Halloween Lace Mask

I thought I'd try a completely new Halloween look, instead of just trying to better my one's from last year. I had seen photos of girls painting lace masks on to their faces and it really intrigued the artsy side of me. I thought I'd at least give it a try!

I did my basic base just like everyday, nothing special: prime, foundation, blush, powder. I didn't want anything too heavy on the eyes if the main focus was going to be on the mask, so I just used a bit of liquid eyeliner and mascara.

The mask took forever! I'm not going to lie to you, but only do this if you have a lot of time to spare. My mask is not the most detailed, but took me roughly two and a half hours in total. I first had to outline the shape with a kohl eyeliner. I used a light hand to make the basic structure of the mask, before adding in large details that I needed to be a guide. That took me about forty-five minutes. After that I had to start the actual painting. Going over every line with black facepaint and a thin eyeliner brush. I then had to thicken the lines up to where I wanted them. Doing the really fine lines was impossible with the eyeliner brush, so I had to switch over to a liquid liner. 

I was really happy with how it turned out, but I would not be doing it again unless I had absolutely nothing else to do!

What's your favourite Halloween look of choice?

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…

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!
