Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights in Pink Light

I'm all about the highlighter: the shinier the better! If you've seen my post all about my highlighters then you'll know that all but one of my highlighters is a powder. To be honest, I'm kind of afraid of liquid highlighters. I'm not really sure the best way to use them without turning my makeup streaky. Thus, I challenged myself to find a way! My poor Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights was getting neglected at the back of my drawer.

My lonely liquid highlighter is the Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights in the shade Pink Lights. The colour is lovely, quite a light neutral toned baby pink shade. Highlighters with a slight pink iridescence are by far my favourite. The texture of this is very lightweight, not too thick and balmy. It can feel quite moisturising when applied to the face. It gives the effect of having a super dewy effect. However, I find that it emphasises the texture of my cheeks more than any of my powder highlighters ever have.

I tried a number of ways of applying this specific highlighter before I was happy with the way it looked. Using my fingers was okay, but I felt that it was just a bit too messy. I also have used a BeautyBlender, which was my least favourite way. I found that it left my cheeks looking streaky, like the cream had grabbed ahold of my foundation and lifted it in places. My favourite way to apply it has to be with my MAC 130SE brush. As the bristles are less dense and more diffused than some brushes, it blends the liquid ever so lightly over the tops of my cheeks without disturbing my foundation. It is also super quick, easy and mess-free!

I'm still on the fence with liquid highlighters. I think that, in this case, I like the Revlon PhotoReady Skinlight in Pink Light, but I don't love it. Like, it's not one of those products that I could live without. I think that perhaps I've just not found the liquid highlighter for me. It's a good product, but it doesn't wow me. I now feel like I've left this on such a down note.

What is your experience with liquid highlighters? Are they a yay, or a big no-no?

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…
