Tarte Maracuja Cheek Tint in Deep Berry

With the transition into Spring, I find that I have been reaching more and more for my liquid and cream blushes over the traditional powders. I prefer liquid and creams during Spring, as I find that their finishes create a dewier appearance. One of the staples in my collection is the Tarte Maracuja Cheek Tint in the shade Deep Berry.

I love the packaging. I always prefer a bottle with a pump compared to a squeeze tube. It distributes the tiniest 'pea' sized about so that too much is not used and wasted. The bottle itself is very aesthetically pleasing; a deep pink bottle with golden writing and purple detailing.

Deep Berry, as the name suggests, is a deep pink berry colour that I think would be universally flattering on many skin-tones. I dabbed a little bit of the blush on the apples of my cheeks, and blended it out with my cream blush brush; with is just a MAC 187 stippling brush. A word of warning though, this product stains, badly. It took over twenty-four hours for the stains on the tips of my fingers to begin to fade. The texture of the blush is neither a dream or a liquid, but more of a gel consistency, which is quite cool.

Do I not look Spring fresh? I love the nice, light flush this Tarte Maracuja Cheek Tint gives me. It looks like I've been out having fun in the sun, enjoying the nicer weather. It gives my cheeks a nice 'lightness' that just generally uplifts any makeup look that I pair with it.

Have you used the Tarte Maracuja Cheek Tints before? What about cream and liquid blushes -yay or nay?

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…
