MAC Glam Lipstick | Review + Swatch.

Greeting my lovely readers and welcome to today's post! In this post we are discussing all things related to MAC's Glam Lipstick and I've thrown in a few swatches for fun too! 

I believe Glam is a 'Limited Edition' colour that was sold a few years ago and has since been brought back back for yet again, a limited time. In saying this I recommend you run straight to your local MAC counter if you are a red lipstick fanatic like me because this colour is GORGEOUS. It is my new favourite shade of red lipstick.

Glam has a gorgeous matte finish and is a blue-based red so it's going to make your teeth look nice and white and the formula is simply amazing. It doesn't dry out my lips like other matte colours do and it stays put for HOURS! I even drank two glasses of water and the glass was spotless and my lips were still vibrant. 

Oh MAC you really won my heart with this one.

What colour should be my next MAC lipstick purchase? After using this baby I feel like I need more of them in my life!

Meiskin: Kokonut Kreme | Review

Hi beauties and welcome back to my blog!

On today's agenda is a review of the relatively new skincare brand on the market; Meiskin, and their *Kokonut Kreme moisturiser.

First off I believe Meiskin's products are solely available on their website ( ) which means you will not come across these in any stores (YET!). However, despite their lack of retailers this Australian natural skincare brand is gathering quite a large following on the social media fronts and are becoming a well known name.

Now on to the good stuff, I recently came in the possession of their "Kokonut Kreme" . On their website Meiskin states:

Meiskin’s Kokonut Kreme is our newest all-over body lotion with a blissful coconut and vanilla hit that works to moderately drench and smooth the skin while leaving a ever so sweet and yummy scent upon your skin.

Now if you follow my Instagram (which you should: @Katerina_Beauty_Blog), you will know I am a SUCKER for anything coconut or vanilla scented and this is a double wammy! I really can't get enough of how good this smells. Seriously. Sometimes I will pick up the bottle just to smell it. If I could have any product made in to a food I would want this and it would be DELICIOUS.

Moving on, this formula of this light blue moisturiser is quite thick and creamy. It is such a great rich consistency I love to apply this at night and in the morning my skin is a soft as a babies booty! Now as I said this is quite a rich formula and that is why I mostly use it at night and I understand feeling "buttered up" isn't everyone's cup of tea but I LOVE IT.

Another quick note, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin! Which is always a plus.

So overall this product gets a big THUMBS UP from me and someone needs to create an edible version of this because it smells so good I don't think I can control myself around it for much longer.
