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.

I picked up the shade Beige Luster, which I think is very compatible to my fave On and On Bronze.  It a very light neutral brown shade with, of course, a metallic finish.The packaging is very much like a lipstick tube; very sleek and simple.The most unusual part is that you apply the product with a doe foot applicator.

The formula is a little strange. On the applicator the product looks really chunky and kind of like it's just about to separate. But when you swatch it, the Eye Chrome becomes the smoothest, creamiest formula ever. Even better, is that it driest extremely fast. On the other hand that means that you only have a short time to blend it out. But once it dries down, you would expect that it would be going anywhere!

However, I found that after a few minutes on my lids the vibrancy and the metallic finish of the Eye Chrome was fading fast. It was just starting to look a bit dull, and like I'd applied a basic shimmery taupe eye-shadow to my lids. I'm not sure if it's just the product in general, but it became quite patchy and streaky looking.

What do you think? Will the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chrome be a big hit - or a miss? Personally, for me it was a miss, but I'd love to hear other's experiences!

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!
