My Highlighter Collection!

When I first came on the makeup scene, highlighters were not that big of a deal. The focus was more on contouring so hard that your cheekbones looked like they could cut glass. Over the last year and a half (sometimes it feels like I've been blogging a lot longer), I have noticed that highlighters have turned into 'THE' product to have.

Strobing is one of the key beauty trends of the year; using highlighters emphasise the highest part of your face. Everybody wants that super glow, healthy looking skin right now. I have been slow on the highlighter uptake, which might explain why I don't have that many.  Highlighters are definitely one of the products I will be buying on my next trip to the States.

The highlighters I currently own are:

Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow
Goddess of Love Tripe Baked Highlighter
Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate
theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer
Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in Pink Light
MAC Pearlmatte Face Powder in Pink Buttercream

Looking at the swatches, despite the Revlon Highlighting Palette being described a highlighting product, it is more of a shimmery blush. I also seem to have a favourite type of highlighter, theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer being the exception. Pale, light pink  highlighters seem to be my thing. I'm looking to branch out my highlighters a bit, maybe a Becca highlighter? Hope you enjoyed this little peek into my makeup collection. 

Let me know, what is your favourite highlighter of all time?

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…

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. 

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!
