M·A·C 'Mineralize' Rich Lipstick

Hi :)
So this is my picks for the new lipstick from MAC. I never know I would be a MAC girl before I tried their face &body foundation and the mineralize concealer.

They retail for $22... I know. A little bit too much for mac lipsticks. I don't like their regular lipstick formula at all. I do buy them sometimes but only because they have unique colors. The formula for the regular ones are way too dry to me. For this formula... It is way more moisturizing compare to the regular ones. The colors are still very well pigmented. and I just cant get over how moisturizing these are! I tried it on bare lips. They smooth out the dry flakiness so well. I can just hide my dry lips with those lipsticks! But as the day goes on... the flakiness does show up because them only last about 3 hours on my lips. I don't really care I can reapply them. I just don't care. So if you like a super moisturizing pigmented lipstick and doesn't care about touch ups and  the $22 price tag for Mac, Go try it! You will love it! My fav is Push tone. It looks so orange in the tube but it is just a little deeper than my natural lip color but a better version.

This week's nail pick : OPI Euro Centrale, Revlon Moon Candy, and Sally Hasssen Lustre shine



- Vant to Bite My Neck - Suzi's Hungary Again! - Polka.com - Butter London shambolic -

Vant to Bite My Neck: I just love OPI's cream finish... This is a deep purple and you need two coat.
Suzi's Hungary Again!:This is a pink with a little bit shimmers in it. You need two coat to get a intense color.
Polka.com: blue-purple glitter top coat. Picture above is one coat.
Butter London shambolic: I got this last week from ULTA... Their lippy nailpolish duo for $10. Don't really care for the lipgloss but this is a pretty top coat.



Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Scarab: I didn't pick out the natural one, but I don't regret it. This is a relaly pretty blue with metallic finish. One coat does the job.
Maybelline Purple Possiblities 30: I made a mistake on this one... it is supposed to be crackled but I forgot to put a base coat
Loreal Just Jet Setting:pretty metallic grey. You only need one coat
Loreal Look at me: Metallic pinkish purple.
Revlon Moon candy Galactic:looks very pretty with the top coat. But It doesn't apply evenly.

Thanks for Looking!

Milani Baked Blush Berry Amore

Hello ladies!
Am I the last one using the Milani baked blush? I heard a lot about those blushes on Youtube, but not much on blogs. I got this on Drugstore.com when they were having 30% off. See I am really trying to cut down my drugstore visits because every time I go I always grab some makeup... I recently organized my makeup I found a lot of unused drugstore makeup......so I decided only shop drugstore makeup online when they have some sort of discount...I know... hoarder problem!

This is not really a berry color. I have light -medium skin tone and this color showed up orangey on me. With a lot of glitter. No, they are mot shimmer. The glitter fall off during the day until like five hours later the blush disappears on my face. Overall I am not impressed with this color or the formula...I may need to try more colors on this line. I sure love Milani products in general but this one is not for me. The packaging is like their powder( which I love), gold and bulky(not a big fan on gold packaging...).


Have you tried this blush? What do you think?

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow Lilac

I don't use Bobbi Brown that often. I only have like two gel eyeliner and one eyeshadow from this brand. When I was at Belk earlier this week I saw their ads - their new spring collection. I am a sucker of purple, so of course I went to swatch several colors from this collection. when I saw this color I was like... ok this looks so chalky I don't think this would work. but when I swatch it - wow!

It is described as a grayish pink, but I just see a lot of purple sparkles! I have to say I am hooked with this color! The glitter doesn't not have any fallout through like a 15 hrs wearing. For my EOTD I used a black base because I went for a really smokey look. This color definitely can top with different colors of shadows to have different effect. I just love shadows like this - workable with other colors! 




Thanks for looking!

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Pearls Marbleized Eyeshadow Duo Ivy Icon

Hi everyone! 
I have really been doing some changes for my blog. Since we moved I couldn't take pictures outside anymore because I don't like the outside lighting too much. And I have a baby that requires my full attention during the day. So I decided to go for artificial lighting.... I built a light box. S i can still enjoy doing my blog and it wont take time during the day. Hope you guys like my new setup! I am still testing out the different lighting so hope this would work! 

So back to the eyeshadow. Maybelline's marbleized eyeshadow are so under rated... I rarely seen any reviews about them. They look interesting from the packaging and I do have several of them. This one I got from target's clearance sell. I don't know last week when I walked into target there were a lot of thing been put on clearance! Especially boots and no.7. I don't get anything from them because most of the stuff were already gone! So I only picked up several eyeshadows that look interesting to me. This happens to  be one of them. I already have the blue one and a pink-gray one. I like both of them. They are not crazy pigmented but they are definitely good for a everyday not so smokey look. The shadows are sparkly and blend every well.

So do I like this? Yes. It is a good duo for a everyday not so smokey look. For my Eotd I used light color(left) for my inner half  and the darker color for my outer half. I did use MAC carbon to darken my outer corner a bit because I love a dark smokey eyes ...This duo lasts a whole day and they blend out really easy. It is a little bit powdery but there is barely fallout. I think this is a duo that nice to have, it worth the money but not a must because the colors are not that unique. 


Thanks for watching!
