Was it Love at First Blush?

I picked up the Soap & Glory Love at First Blush just before Christmas in a Boots '3 for 2' offer, wanting to try something other than their bath and body products. I'm a big blush fan, so when I'm trying out a new brand I will always go for the blush first.

My research showed that this used to come in a soft plastic casing, but the newer version I purchased is ahard case compact. The black and white vintage image and the pink detailing keeps this having a very iconic Soap & Glory image. The inside lid of the compact has a medium sized mirror, making it perfect for carry about on-the-go.

The blush itself is segmented with different shades; Pink, Pop and Pearl. The are to be swirled together and applied to the cheeks. The shimmer is not so chunky and obvious. The shimmer is very refined and subtle, giving the cheeks a luminosity as well as a subtle flush of soft pink colour. I have very pale skin, as in often too light for drugstore foundations, so this has a medium colour impact, but I think it would be great for all skintones!

I see myself reaching for this more and more now that it's much better weather.  I'm now back into baby pinks and a super glowy, luminous complexion. I'm very interested in their other Peach Party Blush.

Anyone tried the other Soap & Glory powder compacts?

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…
