MAC To the Beach Haul

I hauled a few things from MAC’s To the Beach collection.  Had I known everything was going to sell out the first day I would have bought Sweet & Punchy while I was at it but oh wells. I can’t wait to try everything out! Let me know what you hauled from this collection in the comments!

My precious… Marine Life High-light Powder- definitely more of a shimmery coral blush. For some reason it makes me sing “my little pony.”


Hipness blush: a bit pinker and brighter than Instant Chic


Left to right: Beach Bound and Lazy Day. Beach Bound is a pretty peach color that doesn’t turn a horrible orange color on my lips. It’s a very pretty nude type of lip. Lazy Day is almost a glossier more pigmented version of Angel lipstick.


Flurry of Fun lipglass contains teal reflects. Super pretty over lippies!

MAC To the Beach Swatches

MAC’s To the Beach collection launched today (technically yesterday at all Nordstrom’s). Sheesh good luck getting a Marine Life high-light powder. That sold out before the collection even launched! Word of advice: if you really want anything that sold out of this collection, call around to random Macy’s, Dillards, and MAC freestanding stores throughout the country (Oklahoma City anyone?). They’ll ship it to you for a charge of about $12 or at least that’s what I was quoted from Macy’s.

As always, click on the photo for full size. Swatched on NW2o skin.


Ignore the glossy blob in the top left of this pic. I believe that’s Smile dazzleglass.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes, my new love

I gave into the hype and bought a couple Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palettes the other day from Rite Aid. Yes, the same brand that makes 99 cent nail polish that you loved in your teens. The first words out of my mouth when I swatched my WnW Lust palette were “Holy S*&$!” I didn’t expect them to be so smooth and buttery with a high color payoff! These definitely remind me of the same quality as Dior but with cheap packaging. The colors in the WnW Lust palette are also dupes of MAC Eyeshadows such as Shadowy Lady, Yogurt, Beauty Marked, Fig 1, and Knight Divine.


Colors in the left column are matte, and the right column is shimmer. I found it to be a light shimmer, not too chunky.


Flash, swatched with no base, matte colors on top, shimmer on the bottom


Natural light, swatched with no base, matte colors on top, shimmer on the bottom

These shadows blended out very well on the eye, as well. I’ll post a FOTD using these colors this week.

If you’re looking for budget eyeshadows, look no further, give these a try!

Friday Favorites

TGIF baby. I feel like it’s been a pretty short week but that’s because of my travel. Yay home! This weekend isn’t going to be too epic but I love myself a lazy weekend. BTW I’m thinking of moving my blog over to Blogger. Yay? Nay?

Let’s get these Friday Favorites started!

Brows are so important. They can make or break a makeup look. Kandee Johnson posted this awesome video about keeping your brows tamed.

Fellow blogger friend Laura (Emerald Green 88) posted this excellent tutorial on depoting MAC eyeshadows and blushes. Click here for the full tutorial.

Ever wonder where cursors come from?

MAC Superglass Swatches

MAC’s Superglass launched today! As always, click on the photo for full size. Swatched on NW2o skin.


Left to right: Tunnel of Love, Sugar Overload, Gift Wrap, Sweet Tart, Superflash!, Cherry Electric, Disco Blend, Totally Bang!, Fab Frenzy


Wearing Superflash!

These are the glitteriest (is that a word?) lipglosses that i’ve ever encountered! That said, you of course would expect a grit factor. Not so much with these! I could only feel grittiness when I’d rub my lips together very hard. I was surprised to find the formula thicker than MAC’s other lipglosses. Because of the thickness, the glitter and gloss itself stayed on my lips and didn’t stray.

The glitter seemed to be the same iridescent peachy color in all of the glosses except Fab Frenzy, which contained blue and fuchsia glitter. A few of these glosses are pretty sheer but the rest are pretty pigmented. I think the sheer and the opaque gloss lovers will find a match with these. I haven’t hauled this collection (yet) but I’m really wanting to save my money for To The Beach coming out at the end of this month.

Love: Gift Wrap, Disco Blend, and Superflash!
