Beauty Burst Event!!

Firstly I'd like to apologise. This was supposed to be up before I my trip, but unforntately something went wrong with Blogger and it wasn't published. I couldn't use my phone to do so as it was messing up the formatting of the entire post, thus I had to wait until I returned. Many apologies to everyone.

Recently, I attended the Beauty Burst event at a local shopping centre, which focused on promoting the refresh of both your wardrobe and beauty routine. There were demonstrations, samples and many discounts throughout the centre, such as New Look and Ness.

Main focus was a swap shop. Individuals were invited to hand in unwanted, but wearable, clothing in exchange for tokens. These tokens were then used to buy from the swap shop on night of the event. It was a good way to change up a wardrobe without breaking the bank. The best items I picked up was a fur trimmed nodded cape and a pair of black patent brogues. If there was any clothing left over, they would be sent to a charity shop and the proceeds are for the charity 'Help for Children'.

There were various booths from both local businesses and Five Guys. The first was local cocktail bar Jam Jar, which I knew of but I had no idea where it was. I'm not a big drinker, but this is probably my type of place; I'm very much a cocktail person. 

The next was the Malmasion, which I have also not been to (you can tell I don't get out much!). They are located in a very iconic historical building which was carefully refurbished by the hotel, as it enhance original structural features. They are very well known for having a fantastic bar with yummy cocktails. They were offering samples of their popular cocktails; I picked up pina colada, my cocktail of life. 

There was also samples of Five Guys fresh fries, and I also had a meal voucher. The fries were delicious, I have been converted to the religion that is Five Guys fries; their burgers not so much. I personally did not think their burgers were as great as my friends had made them out to me. But I did like that you could watch the burghers being made.

I was determined to see the advertised demonstration from Lush. There had been one previously at their Fashion Live event in April, but I had to miss it. I was glad to finally see it. The girls were explaining how to make, and what went into, the Butterball bath bomb.

There was also a walking fashion show at timed intervals throughout the evening, show casing male and female fashions from retailers through the centre.

It was such a fun evening: I met with the other Dundee blogging gals and took this crazy photo (I clearly have yet to master the art of appearing photogenic). 

I'm really glad I went, and from what I seen, it turned out to be a successful event. Overgate were very kind to send us home with another amazing goodie bag, I mean look at the Batiste!! Simple things make me happy!

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!
