MAC Cherry Lip Liner

13 Nov

I’ve been wearing a lot of red lipstick lately. Don’t ask me why, I’ve just been on a kick. I’ve never really been that into lip liners though. I guess I never really thought they were all that necessary, but since I’ve been rocking the red pout lately I’ve found myself thinking I could use one. So, I popped into MAC and picked up their lip liner in Cherry. I chose this shade because it is just a true red that will go with whatever shade of red I happen to be wearing. I’ve loved using this liner so far and I find that it just adds a little extra definition to my lips and makes the lipstick last quite a bit longer. I might just be converted into a lip liner lover!

Do you wear lip liners? What’s your favorite?

MAC Glamour Daze Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Stolen Moment

6 Nov

So the over the weekend I popped into MAC to pick up a lipliner and I walked out with said lipliner and a little something extra. I was perusing the holiday collection while waiting for someone to check me out and I have to say that I wasn’t terribly impressed by most of the offerings. Not that they weren’t good products, they just weren’t anything different that I felt I needed to add to my collection – with one exception. This eyeshadow from the Glamour Daze collection caught my eye immediately. Now I’ll admit that I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with taupe eyeshadows, so the fact that I was drawn to this comes as no surprise. The difference with this eyeshadow to me is the texture. It’s very shimmery, but not at all sparkly and it is super soft and blendable. The perfect texture in my mind.

I wore this eyeshadow yesterday and I seriously got so many compliments. I always take that as a sign that I’ve made a good choice! The shadow retails for $19.50 and it is sold out online, but my local counter still had plenty of them. As with most MAC collections though it might not last for long, so if you’re interested in this beautiful shade I would suggest you go to your local counter soon!

Have you tried any of the new MAC holiday collection? What’s your go to eyeshadow shade?

MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection Beauty Powder in Forever Marilyn

25 Oct

For the last product I picked up from the Marilyn Monroe collection I thought I would would show you all the product I was least likely to buy, but have been enjoying the most. When I was perusing this collection, I never even looked twice at this beauty powder. I wasn’t really sure how I would use it and didn’t think it was anything all that special. That was until the makeup artist at the MAC counter tried it on me. Now I have to say that I am a bit obsessed with finding the perfect highlighter. I find many of them to be too sparkly or too sheeny, so when she showed this one to me I was floored. This powder isn’t sparkly at all and it’s just enough lighter than my skin tone to create a highlight without it looking obvious. It gives my skin a sort of soft glow that actually reminds me a lot of old Hollywood actresses like Marilyn Monroe. I think this powder works beautifully on fair skin tones like mine, but I also think it would work on darker tones as well. All in all I am totally in love with this product and I really think it is the stand out product in the line.

What is your favorite highlighter? Would you have picked this product up immediately or passed it by like I was going to?
