Mac Cosmetics Venomous Villains Strange Potion Lipglass

Mac Cosmetics Venomous Villains Strange Potion Lipglass

I had been looking forward to trying this one after reading all of it's great reviews. I'd been searching for the Hot House lipglass from this collection but couldn't find it so I thought I'd give this one a shot.

Right away I noticed the extremely precise packaging compared to my other Mac lipglasses. It comes with not only a box but a Limited Edition sleeve with the Evil Queen on it.Taking it out of the box for the first time I got so excited to try it! It's a beautiful baby pink coral with a slight pink/silver shimmer in it. 

The application was easy and it didn't pull or tug and it has a semi opaque coverage. This would suit many skin tones as it is quite a neutral colour. It lasted fairly long for a lipgloss as it is quite a sticky textured one, which works best for me! I had to reapply after 3 hours and it looked just as good reapplied. I have no bad things to say about this one! 

Everything has been perfect for me, it's long lasting, has great colour pay off, has that beautiful Mac scent and looks amazing on!
I have to rate this one what it deserves, a full 10/10!

Thank you for reading! If you have any questions please feel free to comment!

Bobbi Brown Rich Color Gloss in Ruby Red

Bobbi Brown Rich Color Gloss in Ruby Red

This week has been quite hectic! First of all I just wanted to let all of my lovely readers know that I got into my makeup artistry HND course! Yay me! I am ecstatic and so excited! The only thing I fail to be excited about is the kit cost of £500! Yes you read that correctly! But who cares, you can't put a price on a dream come true (cheesy I know but so true). :)

Anyway, onto my review! The past few days I have been wearing this gloss to really see it's full potential in wear, longevity, colour payoff, texture & of course, aroma.

When I first took it out of the box I expected 'Ruby Slippers Red' but what I got was even better! It is a beautiful reddish-plum purple colour which I didn't expect at all.
When I first applied it, it went on quite streaky and took me a while to get on evenly. Maybe its the actual applicator? 

There was a certain mint-like scent once applied and a slight tingling sensation. I really love the colour of this on me. It is like a nude on me, as my lips have quite a dark pink pigment to them naturally. 

The colour payoff is great but isn't very noticeable on me! It didn't last extremely long as it's not a 'sticky' gloss like my others and I had to reapply after 45 minutes. 

Overall I would rate this a 6/10 because there wasn't much longevity, it took a while to apply it because of the streaky application. It is a lovely little gloss and I will use it again, but will be reapplying constantly!

A big thanks to my wonderful sponsor!

MAC Cosmetics 'Revealing' Lipglass

I'd like to start off this post by letting everyone know I received an email this morning about my college course interview... I have my second and final interview in two weeks time. I really hope I do well but I am nervous to do someone else's makeup as a task as I have only done it once before! I also have a mood board and face chart to do before hand.. Another thing I have no experience in (face charts!).

This lipglass was sent to me by my wonderful sponsor not only to review the actual gloss but to go over a touchy subject - Fake Mac.

 At first glance all is well, until it's opened. My boyfriend was my guinea pig to compare the smell of my 'Viva Glam Gaga' (pink) lipglass and this one. His first reaction was 'Waxy', exactly as I thought. But this may surprise many when I tell them, this lipglass isn't a fake at all. 

Just because it doesn't smell like the usual Mac vanilla/chocolate, doesn't make it a fake. But if you are unsure whether your item is a fake please feel free to contact me and send me some pictures of the product too -

I really like this lipglass (excluding the lingering smell!). It applies so easily and just glides on. It goes on evenly and applies well with just one application. The colour is opaque and the finish is high shine.The lipglass lasted for just over one hour and a half which is quite a short term wearing lipglass but I reapplied. 

I paired it with a nude-brown smokey eye and winged eye liner (my usual eye look). Most Mac lipglasses are quite sticky but this one seems to feel quite light and creamy. This nudey colour is the opposite from what I would usually pick but.. I think it really suits my skin tones and has made me more interested in nude lip colours.

This lipglass has become one of my go-to lipglosses as it pairs with a lot of different looks and adds a little 'something'. I really like this and rate it 8/10. I marked it down for two reasons. One being the smell and also it doesn't last very long.
