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. 


I truly loved Genie, even now I will reach for it when I want a super bright pink lip. Excitingly for me, I found out that Barry M has brought out an another colour changing lipstick; a sequel to Genie. Meet Neptune. Isn't it beautiful?


In the tube, Neptune looks like a medium blue colour that seems pretty scary. Fortunately, it does not stay that way. Neptune works the exact same to Genie. The lipstick reacts with the alkaline of the lips to form a unique shade for each individual. Neptune turns from a blue into the most beautiful purply lilac shade. On me, the colour leans more towards a lilac shade, which I love!


The colour is not the only highlight of this lipstick; the texture is also very nice. The consistency is less like a lipstick and more of a balm. My lips feel so moisturised after applying it, and it lasts for a fair while. However, even after the moisturisation has gone there is always a subtle purple tint to the lips which can be topped up with some clear balm. 


I feel that some people might find this a bit too tacky, or gimmicky, for them. But, this is right up my alley. I think that the colour changing aspect just gives the lipstick a little edge, something to make it a bit different from every other lipstick out there. The intense punch of colour, paired with the balmy texture, means that this lipstick is perfect for Spring and Summer. 


Have you ever tried either of the Barry M Colour Change Lip Paints? Or maybe the ones from Lipstick Queen?

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…

A Different Take on The Maybelline Color Tattoo?!

I don't know about you guys but I am obsessed with the Maybelline Color Tattoos! Quite often during the summer I will just pop some of the On and On Bronze onto my lids and I will be good to go. When I was on a last minute dash to Walgreens the day before my flight home from Florida, I spotted some of the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chromes hidden on a bottom shelf at the BACK of the beauty aisles. I was so excited that it flew into my basket.
