Quick Update

Hi everyone! Sorry I’m so quiet these days, it’s been a busy week for me. I’m actually moving my blog over to Blogger/Blogspot very soon. I’ll keep everyone updated when I finally pull the trigger on that one. As a special thank you to my followers I will be having a MAC To the Beach giveaway once I’m established over in my new digs. See you soon!!!

Wet N Wild Lust FOTD

Here’s a look I did the other day using my new Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palette in Lust. Hope you enjoy! xoxo


Face
Lancome Dual Finish Powder
YSL Touche Eclat
Dior Coral Riviera blush
MAC Shell Pearl beauty powder

Eyes
Wet n Wild Lust Palette
Urban Decay 24/7 liner Zero
Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara

Lips
YSL ‘Rouge Pure Shine’ Sheer Lipstick #16 Bohemia Rose

I used the top four colors in the WnW palette. To recreate this look with MAC, I would use Yogurt on the lid, Fig 1 in the crease, Knight Divine in the outer V, and Vanilla to highlight.

Me in 20 years…

So if this is what I look like in 20 years, I guess, yay?

Click here to play along. They also have a version where you can tell it to make you age 20 years but as a drug addict, heck yeah!

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!

Britney’s rocking it un-airbrushed

I love it when a celebrity releases their un-airbrushed pictures. You’re expecting them to have hooves and multiple chub rolls but in Britney’s pics, that’s so not the case.

In Britney’s Candie’s ad campaign, she agreed to release her unaltered images and girlfriend looks dang good. No wonder she released them. I only wish my booty looked like her unphotoshoped version.

Review: DiorShow Iconic Mascara

I must start off saying, I love this mascara. I picked up my first tube of it not really thinking i’d find something better than my fav YSL Faux Cils but I did. Dare I say this is my holy grail mascara? Heck yeah it is!

Quick take: Dark, long, defined lashes. With everyday use, a tube will last you over 2 months. A+

DiorShow Iconic promises- A mascara with an innovative oblique brush that curls and defines lashes.With its long, skinny teeth, the plastic comb brush allows you to precisely coat each lash one-by-one-creating a long, separated fan of lashes that usually takes the skill of a makeup artist. The extra-hold formula provides a 24-hour-curl with 100% smudge-proof results.

What I liked: Not only did it perform like the package said it would, my lashes looked noticeably longer. I occasionally get asked if I’m wearing false lashes when I use this mascara! I love that this mascara never flakes or smudges, and even looks the same hours after you applied it. I don’t need to curl my lashes, the formula and brush do the curling for me. Best of all, I don’t feel like I’m wasting my money since a tube lasts for months with everyday use.

No likey: To hold the curl, the mascara gets a little stiff. Taking it off takes a little effort but it’s nothing a good makeup remover can’t remove.

No Mascara

2 coats of DiorShow Iconic, I did not curl my lashes

I’d buy this mascara over and over again. One coat of mascara looks nice and natural but two or more and you’ve got some drama! Although it costs $27, you get your moneys worth since it doesn’t dry out in a week like some other brands do.

Product available at Sephora
