Spring Beauty Haul


It's been so long since I have last done any major makeup shopping; I think it was Boxing Day when I last went a bit 'wild'. Boots was running deals on the majority of their brands, my interest was being pulled by the '3 for 2' on Revlon. I was desperatly needing a new foundation as my Maybelline Fit Me! was down to it's last drops.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Fragrance Mist
It's my type of scent; sugary sweet with just a hint of zesty freshness. It was reduced down to half price so I just picked it up, but I can quickly see it becoming gym Spring scent.

MAC Flamingo Park Beauty Powder in Sunny Surprise
My only impulse buy of the whole trip. I was surprise to see the Flamingo Park display at my local MAC counter completely in-stock, like nobody was really interested in any of the products. Most of my MAC collection is made up of my lipsticks with a single blusher and bronzer to round it out. I felt like branching out a bit, picking up the Beauty Powder in Sunny Surprise.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation in 110 Ivory
My Maybelline Fit Me! is on it's last little drops, so it was time to get a new foundation. I really under estimated how hard it would be to get a good match. Everyone recommended the lightest Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, but it was far too yellow. After a good half an hour of spacing up and down the beauty aisle, I found that the Revlon Colorstay in 110 Ivory has enough of a pink undertone to suit my neutral-cool skin.

Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow
As there was '3 for 2' going on at the time I picked out another two products that I had been having my eye on. The Revlon Highlighting Palette looks something similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, so I thought it would be nice to try.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Devotion
When ever I'm in America, liquid lipsticks are nearly all I buy as the British drugstores just don't have any equivalent. At least until the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor was released. I was so excited to see it on the display that I did not second guess my decision to pick it up.

Hourglass Extreme Sheen High-Shine Lipgloss in Primal
I've been loving my  Hourglass Opaque Rouge so much that I decided to pick up the Extreme Sheen High-Shine Lipgloss. I'm not really a lipgloss person, but the Primal was just such a pleasing shade.

Philosophy Hope in a Jar
I've heard that Philosophy is a really great brand, and that their cleanser is like a raved about product. I have been having super dry skin, like really bad, so I picked up their Hope in a Jar. It's supposed to be an extra rich moisturiser so hopefully it'll be good.

Lush Mask of Magnaminty
New Lush mask for me! I picked out the Mask of Magnaminty because it's self-preserving, and lasts a lot longer than any of the one you have to keep in the fridge ever do. It smells so minty fresh!


Have you picked up any new Spring season bits and bobs for your collection?

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!

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.
