Bite Beauty Frozen Berries Matte Creme Lipstick in Elderberry

I've been siting on the limited edition Bite Beauty Frozen Berries Matte Creme Lipstick in the shade Elderberry since late summer when I picked it up at Sephora. I have been loving it since the start of the Autumn/Winter season; the colour didn't feel appropriate for use until then. Elderberry was one of the only shades left in the collection, but that was fine as I was totally on a dark berry/ purple lip colour kick.

I had heard of Bite Beauty a few times prior to my trip, but it wasn't something I was super familiar with. Their lipsticks contain food-grade ingredients which makes them, theoretically, perfectly fine to eat. Though to be fair, if you spend $24 on a lipstick you are hardly going to eat it.

The colour is a super deep, almost blackened burgundy red; it almost appears black in the tube at times. The pigmentation is a medium sheer which, if you want the true colour payoff, the you have to layer a bit. If worn sheered out, then the colour is much more just deep burgundy red coloured. For a matte creme lipstick, it has a very glossy sheen to it. When it fades away it leaves behind a stain, which just hints at the colour it used to be.

How scary does it look?! Honestly I was a bit scared at first that it would end up being too dark for me. With Elderberry being such a rich and deep colour, expert precision must be taken when applying. Any faults or imperfections are very obvious with such a lipstick. I use a dark lipliner to outline and fill in the lips before hand.

I totally in love with this lipstick, but I'm sad that I can only really realistically wear it during the colder months. I'm maybe have to find a way to make it work during summer. 

How do you feel about the brand Bite Beauty? Admittedly I still don't know much about them...

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…
