My Little Pumpkins

I'm not going to lie; I've started my Halloween festivities already. I have an electronic pumpkin sitting on my desk flickering away, and the scent of Yankee Candle Candy Corn is in the air. To me the approach of Halloween signifies the beginning of the lead up to the winter holidays. The cold nights are creeping in, hot chocolate must be on hand at all times, and tartan scarves are EVERYWHERE! I live it!

My first contribution to the Halloween content that will grace my blog this year are these adorable little pumpkins. It's my standard nail art for the next month; using Sephora by OPI 'Hi Def' as my pumpkin base. It ended up being a little bit messy but that's just down to me not doing my nails properly in a while.

I kinda wish my nails were longer; I just feel that the nail art is a bit cramped as it is. I'm thinking next nail art will be 'Nightmare before Christmas' inspired a.k.a the main movie that is appropriate for both Christmas and Halloween.

Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!

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…
