Sephora Green Tea Fiber Mask

Since my return from the States, my skin has taken a turn for the worse. I've started to notice spots forming along my chin and nose, which makes me feel all 'bleugh'. I used to suffer quite badly with spots when I was younger, so any occurrences make me feel like I'm back to being a spotty twelve year old. Honestly, not a good point in my life. I thought I'd use this time to try the Sephora Green Tea Fiber Face Mask.

I'd seen these pop out on a few blogs before my trip, so they were very much top of my 'to buy' list. There were six different varieties to purchase, but I picked two that worked for the problems my skin experienced.

The Green Tea mask, in particular, focused on being mattifying and anti-blemish.  I had never used a fiver mask before; all the masks I had used before were creme formulas, like from Lush. The application was quite tricky as it seemed to wrinkle excessively no matter how I shaped it. I did have a good time scaring my mother with it! The mask was very oily which is what made it cling to my face (although I still felt like I had to lie back so that it didn't fall off). 

Upon removing the mask, a lot of the oils remained behind which you are instructed to massage into the skin and leave to absorb. I was dubious to this as my skin felt super oily and uncomfortable, but I retained judgment for the next morning. Sure enough, my skin was less oily and more matte looking than it usually is. The area around my nose however was still as oily as always.

Will you be picking up a few of these?

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…
