MAC Lipglass in Riviera Life

Swatches from Left to Right: Orange Tempera & Riviera Life

MAC Lipstick in Salute!

MAC Lipstick in Salute! Swatch

MAC Blush in Fleet Fast

I went to the MAC Hey, Sailor! unveiling event at my local MAC store a few days ago and picked up some items. I actually purchased less than I thought I was going to. My initial thoughts of the collection when I saw them on-line was that it was going to be pretty awesome, but when I went to the event and actually did real life swatching I changed my mind on some products. However, I did end up with 4 items. Two lipglasses, One Lipstick and One Blush. Overall, the packaging is quite cute and I really like the Orange Temepra and Riviera Life lipglasses because the colours are not something you can find in the drugstore. I am still indifferent about the Salute! lipstick... just not quite sure how to wear it because it is a very pale colour. The blush is very pretty, a bit of a shimmer to it but I think its workable :) Has anyone else purchased anything from the collection and want to share their thoughts? Comment below!

Sparkles & Shoes! Disco Feet!

It was my birthday a few days ago and I did some minor shopping. Very minor! haha I only ended up with one pair of shoes :) What a way to ring in another year then to buy a pair of sparkly disco light looking shoes? And that is just what I did! I purchased these at Spring shoes at a local mall. I think you can also find them on-line These bad boys were on sale for $20 and I got an additional 10% off using my student discount card which was pretty sweet. I may go back and order a pair of black ones just for fun...

April Favourites 2012: NYX, MAC, Maybeline & More

Its that time already?! April favourites came way too fast! Anyways here are some of my fave products for the month of April (those items I found myself reaching for the most!)

  • Bath & Body Works Pink Chiffon Fine Fragrance Mist - This stuff smells sooo good and I find myself constantly spraying myself with it through out the day. Since it is just a mist the scent does tend to disappear after a few hours. I keep a travalo full of this mist in my purse and take it where ever I go :)
  • ECO tools Bronzer Brush - I was watching one of Chelsea's ( videos and she had mentioned this brush so I went out to purchase it. Right after using it for the first time I fell in love and have been using it constantly since! Thanks Chelsea!
  • MAC Matte Blush in Melba - Love this blush because its the perfect color to give your face a bit of a flush look but it isn't sparkly because its a matte color. I love wearing this blush when I have a dramatic smoky eye :)
  • Maybeline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze - This color is perfect for everyday wear! I sometimes just put this on with a bit of liner and mascara and am good to go for the day.
  • Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti - A nice coral orange color. Great to give your face a pop of color for the day!
  • NYX Butt Naked Palette - This palette has everything you need for eyes, cheeks and contour. Shadows are very nice and I love the blushes that come with this palette. Great for creating neutral and smoky eye looks!
Well, that is all my favourites for the month of April! What have your favourites been? Comment below! Don't forget to enter the Giveaway if you haven't already :)
