Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette

I thought I'd take a step back from throwing Christmas spirit everywhere, and do a bit of a makeup review. That's why I first started blogging as well as my favourite part.

I bought the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette back in September when I was in Florida because, frankly, I'd seen it everywhere prior to my trip. Every makeup collection video, monthly favourites, hauls; it was EVERYWHERE! Naturally, I had to pick it up.

The eyeshadows themselves are very nicely pigmented, I find that a little colour goes a long way.  Their formulation is very soft and buttery, some more so than others. I like how the packaging is very basic; the lip is just a piece of clear plastic. It allows me to see the colours straight away, I don't have to flaff around and open the lid to see them. Yes, I'm that lazy. There are no shade names in the Wet n Wild palettes which makes this next part very hard.You get eight shadows in the palettte, four bronze tones and four green tones. 

Starting on the bronze shade side, the first is a Brow-bone colour which is a soft beige that pulls a bit more yellow and a frost finish. Next is a the main Eyelid colour which is a very warm neutral copper colour with a frost finish, followed by the Crease colour which is the perfect bronze colour, also a frost finish, for this time of year. Last for the bronze colours is the Definer colour, that is a burgundy brown colour with more of a shimmer finish. You can see that is definitely more visible glitter particles in the shadow than the others.

On the green shade side, the Brow-bone colour is a light taupe shade with a frost finish. I found it had to describe and actually googled colours until I found the most similar. The Eyeild colour is a very vibrant spring green colour that is also a frost finish. The Crease colour is a deep, dark olive green with a shimmer finish. The Definer colour is my favourite. It looks like it is just plain teal but it swatches a deep reddish brown with a teal duo chrome finish. So different to anything else I own!

I didn't use this palette too much before this post, but now I feel like I have a new found appreciation for it. I especially love the duochrome definer colour, it is quite literally amazing. I seems like it would be a good everyday palette, if I were to use it more. I definitely want more Wet n Wild palettes. I will have to keep an eye out when I'm back stateside in June.

That definer shade though!

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…
