The BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Moonstone

I have achieved a major highlighting goal: to own a BECCA highlighter! Ever since writing my highlighter post I have been itching to go out and find a new highlighter. With all the buzz that surrounds the BECCA highlighters, I decided that I would try them out.

The packaging for a Shimmering Skin Perfector is very sleek and iconic; anyone who knows makeup knows what this is at just a single glance. I find it very travel-friendly. I'm currently in between makeup bags and while I search for a new one, all my makeup is roaming free in the bottom of my bag. However, I would still recommend being a bit gentle with the compact. I have heard from others that it has been known to shatter at the slightest provocation.

Moonstone is the second lightest shade of the collection. It is a very soft and pale golden shade that is very flattering to my fair skin-tone. It's obviously not as pale as Pearl but it's also not got as much of a warm, golden undertone as Champagne Pop! I did swatch Opal on my hand in Sephora, and from looking at the colours online I didn't realise how dark it was. Just goes to show that you should always try to go see products in person. Looking at my current collection, BECCA's Moonstone is one step lighter and less golden than theBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer; for reference.

I really enjoy this highlighter. I was able to justify it's purchase as it is so different to any of the others I own. Whenever I wear this I always get complimented on how 'glowy' my face is. 

Who else agrees that any BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector should a staple in everyone's makeup bag?

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!
