New Love

Hi Beauties,

I've discovered a new cheek combo that I am in love with...MAC Stereo Rose blended on the cheeks with MAC Marine Life Powder of the apples of cheeks. It leaves such a gorgeous glow! Take a look.

Wet N Wild FOTD

I've been hearing good things about the Wet N Wild Color Icon palettes so I decided to try it out, and at only $4.99 you can't lose.

I must say that I am impressed by these palettes, unlike the previous WNW palette that I purchased! The colors are highly pigmented and blend easily. Yes, the packaging is flimsy and there is no mirror, but for 5 bucks I have no real complaints.

Here is a look I created using the Vanity palette. I usually do not do a white highlight color (I almost always use concealer as my highlight color), but I wanted to use every color in the palette. I know its a little sloppy, but it was done in a rush so I could show you guys right away!!

Also the last pic was taken before the face was done...always do eyes first when using colors with alot of fallout. That way you can clean up your face without interrupting the makeup.

Heat Wave and Finals

Hi guys,

I've been busy wrapping up my summer session and taking finals this week. And since the weather have been 95+ degrees, I haven't been wearing much makeup.

I will be back next week with a few posts and a GIVEAWAY!

Stay cool!

MAC's In the Groove - Stereo Rose MSF

I picked up several items from In the Groove and am pleased with all of my purchases :-) Everybody and their mama has swatched these products, so I wont do that again, lol. One of the items I picked up was the Stereo Rose MSF, which is a gorgeous coral with a slight shimmer.

It looks gorgeous in the pan and when I was..pretty. Not make-you-want-to-jump-up-and-down gorgeous - but pretty. At the risk of being shot, I'm gonna may be a little overrated.

When used as a blush on my skin it gives a sheer coral shimmer which is nice for the summer months. Overall I am happy with this MSF bc it's a nice addition to my makeup collection.

Take a look at the MSF applied to my looks a bit more pigmented in real life than in the pics

Bough Grey

Hey Ladies,

It's been SO hot over the past few weeks that my makeup has been minimal. Since the weather is steamy, I decided to do a smokey gray daytime look using just a few products and keeping the face makeup to a minimum.

MAC Light Over Dark Blush

Hi Makeup Lovers,

When this blush was released with the Pret-a-Papier collection, I passed. I thought it would look like a muddy glitter ball. Recently I spotted this blush at a CCO and thought I would give it a go. OMG! I. Love. This. Blush. It gives me a peachy - brown, sparkly glow (I hate trying to describe colors lol).

Since purchasing this blush, I've used it just about everyday that I've worn makeup. I absolutely love the glow it gives and the sparkle is not too overpowering.

Does anyone else own this blush? Don't you love it???
