Deborah Lipmann Razzle Dazzle

Friday, 23 December 2011

Hey everyone! Today I am going to show you an a-m-azing nail polish. It is officially my No.1 Christmas nail polish. I'm sure you have of heard of it as everyone in the beauty community has been going crazy for this ever since it arrived in the December GlossyBox. Its by a brand called Deborah Lippmann and its called 'Razzle Dazzle', which is such an awesome name and suits the christmas season so well.

As you can see its a gorgeous deep red with red/pink flecks of glitter. I think it pretty much sums up christmas, I like to think of it as "Christmas in a pot". Just adding to the amazingness (is that even a word?) of this polish, the bottle design is absolutely gorgeous. It feels very luxurious in your hand. Its also extremely pigmented, in the picture I am wearing two coats and that is literally all you need! This is a  really good quality polish and has good lasting power on your nails. Saying that, Its a bugger to get off! This brand has definitely reached one of my favourite nail polish brands, coming next to Leighton Denny.

Have you ever tried any from this brand? If so what can you recommend for me?

Whats your favourite festive candle?


How to tell a fake M.A.C Face and Body foundation?

Saturday, 17 December 2011

My sister stupidly bought what she thought was a M.A.C Face & Body foundation of eBay. When she told me she had purchased one from there I was very interested to see if it was fake and to compare it to mine. So I have done, I have compared it for you guys and I wanted to this share with you! I know a lot of you have a high street budget when it comes to makeup and M.A.C becomes very desirable, so the natural thing to do is look elsewhere for a better price. When it comes to buying makeup from eBay you have to be very careful. Not only with hygiene reasons but also health. You don't know what is in these products, ingredients could be used that may be harmful to you. I hope it helps :) Lets start off with the first thing that I noticed was different.

Just to let you know the real Face & Body foundation is on the LEFT.

The bottles are pretty much the same size I would say but you can notice that the text on the authentic one (left) is higher, bolder with not as much space in between the letters. You can tell more in these pictures...

Now looking at this picture of the back of the product its the same with the text here as the front of the bottle.

This picture of the bottom of the product is probably one of the biggest giveaways that it is not an authentic Face and Body foundation. As you can see straight away the shade on the fake bottle (right) claims that it is a NC35. M.A.C Face and Body foundations do not even come in the regular shade names for their other foundations, like you can see with the authentic one its shade N2 and the authentic ones all follow this pattern with shades N2, N3, C2, C3 etc. You can also notice the sticker on the fake one, the authentic ones simply do not have them!

Going onto the actual applicator they pretty much look the same. It looks as if the authentic one (left) is a little bigger in width and height on the screw part.

Moving onto the product itself. M.A.C Face and Body is know as its lightweight sheer formula being a water based foundation it acts as if its your skin but better. I have blobbed a bit of product from both bottles of my hand and in the second image I have blended them in a bit.

You can instantly see that with the authentic product (left) its a lot more runny and has run down my hand, where as with the fake product its a lot thicker and has just sat there.

In this picture I have just blended it in a little. You will notice that the real product looks a lot sheer and light, where as the fake looks thicker and more of a cream texture.

I also have to say that the smell is completely different. Face & Body lovers will know that it doesn't have the best of smells, but we still love it! The fake one smells as if its been perfumed and as far as I know M.A.C don't actually use perfume in their foundations.

I really hope this has helped if you have had your eye on a couple on eBay. It really is not worth it what so ever, spend out on the real thing. You will not regret it. If you are looking at one on eBay, and to you it looks genuine make sure you ask lots of questions relating to my pictures above so you know exactly what your getting with it.

Leighton Denny Persian

Thursday, 1 December 2011

I have yet another Leighton Denny post here for you, you all know I love this brand and their products so I think this could become a regular series of posts. Seeing as I have so many, I think its only fair to share them all with you ;) The shade I want to show you today is called Persian and it is just so gorgeous! I have never ever tried a green varnish before and I'm really enjoying it. This has become another one of my favourite shades for A/W11. It also has a festive feel to it, you could make it even more festive with a layer of gold glitter nail varnish... Okay think I'm getting a little carried away now!
