Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in 'Edition'

I like liquid lipsticks. The idea of applying it once and not having to really ever hour is my kind of idea. I'm totally lazy like that. I don't have to worry that it's becoming too faded or patchy, and at most I will only have to reapply after a heavy meal. When I see the brand 'Hourglass' I think high-end, luxury products; it's sone of the brand that I fell everyone needs to try once. I picked up an Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick and an Ambient Lighting Powder as my first 'dip. into the brand.

The packaging of the liquid lipstick is a funny rounded off rectangular shape; thicker in the middle and thinner at the ends. It's quite sleek and streamlined, which is perfect for popping into a hand bag. There is a little window on the front of the tube so that it is easy to distinguish the colour. The rest of the tube is a warm bronze colour with a metallic effect to it. Edition is a nice warm pink colour that leans towards being slightly more coral. There are lots of tiny little golden shimmers in the liquid lipstick which I quite like; it creates an interesting look since the final finish is matte.

The applicator for this is one of my favourites; it's a double sided thin doe-foot. This makes it easy for very precise and sharp application. The formula is quite thick when compared to other liquid lipsticks I tried, such as my Kat von D and Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lippies. I feel that it tends to dry quicker too, so you have to work quickly with it so that an even application can be achieved. If I press my lips together too hard when I'm wearing it then  I can feel a little bit of tackiness, but it drys down to a nice level. It doesn't become so dry and hard that it's uncomfortable to wear, or starts to flake off.

I genuinely love this liquid lipstick; it's so comfortable and smooth on my lips. It lasts so well that to remove it I sometimes have to use some cleaning balm to make it easier to shift. It ranks tied first place with my Kat von D in terms of how much I love it. I think I will end up with another one soon, possibly Canvas? The Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick can be bought for £23 at SpaceNK, not sure where else but that is where I bought mine. I'm about £25 away for my £5 SpaceNK N.dulge incentive which is another push in that direction.

To buy, or not to buy? That is my question! Let me know what you think

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…
