For The Love of Mac Bare Slimshine

Mac's Bare Slimshine has to be one of my all time favourite lipsticks.  It's a beautiful, moisturising formula which feels great on the lips.  The colour Bare is just perfect for every day use and can be applied without the use of a mirror.

But since it has been discontinued what next?

As I am nearing the end of my last tube I thought it was time to find a replacement.  So yesterday I went to Mac and asked one of the staff what is the nearest thing to Bare Slimshine?  She told me it would be Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Bare Again.  This cost me £13.50.

I have to say it is almost exactly like Bare Slimshine.  Here are the 2 together:

There is no real difference in the colour.  The tubes are different and the Bare Again is wider.  I'm not sure if it contains more lipstick than Bare Slimshine as I can't see the weight on the tube and I no longer have the box.

Here they are swatched:

Bare Slimshine is the narrower swatch at the top and Bare Again is the wider swatch.  Not much between them then.  The girl also said they are very similar in texture which was apparent when I swatched them together.

Only time will tell if I will love Bare Again as much as my wee favourite Bare Slimshine RIP.

Have you tried any of the Sheen Supreme lipsticks and are they as lovely or perhaps even nicer than the Slimshines?

Yes to Carrots C Me Blush Lip Tints - Review

"Yes To Carrots is a line of guilt free natural skin and hair products with deliciously nourishing formulas, combining high quality organic fruits and vegetables with the power of 26 minerals and trace elements".

This is a beautiful lip balm with just a hint of colour.  The colour I have is Cotton Candy. It is a very pale pink and also has a little bit of shimmer in it.

It is very nourishing on the lips and has a minty smell to it.  Great for those times when you have no mints and you think you might need to smell great!!

Here is a glimpse of the shimmer:

It looks lovely on the lips and is perfect for those times when you don't need a full on lipstick but need something that will give you a hint of colour and keeps those lips nourished and kissable!!  I found the formula to be very long wearing.  It certainly lasted a lot longer on my lips than any other lip balm I have tried.  It's also great for those times when you don't have a mirror available.  It's simple to apply without looking!!

This lip balm costs £4.99 and is available from Victoria Health and also now available in Waitrose nationwide.  I wish we had a Waitrose here:(

The Yes To Range does not test on animals which is very important to a lot of people.  If you are looking for a range of excellent cruelty free products then look no further!!

This product was sent to me for review purposes but I would certainly purchase this myself and intend to get a few more colours.
