MAC Bloggers' Obsessions

On the 21st, MAC launched an online only collection created by some of the top beauty bloggers. This collection consisted of 9 products; 4 eyeshadows & 5 lipglass' all of which were concocted by the bloggers themselves.

I survived the total clusterf*ck MAC caused by launching the collection, then pulling it down in random spurts. I only ordered two items, Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow & Evolution Revolution lipglass. While I think the idea behind this collection was pretty awesome, the other items didn't really appeal to me (especially dark-coloured lipglass)

The awesome UPS man brought me my goodies today & I put them to work instantly!

Evolution Revolution lipglass is a pretty, sheer peachy-pink with loads of sparkle. For my personal preferences, it seemed a bit to orange for me, even though it is quite sheer.

I really, personally, LOVE Jealousy Wakes. I think she hit the nail right on the head with this shadow. I can honestly say that in my entire collection I own NOTHING like it. Most of you probably know how much I love to rock the greens & teals and this shadow was perfect. I'm normally not a huge fan of Veluxe Pearl finishes, but this applied very nicely, super vibrant. My only compliant, was that I received my shadow with small bits missing (though I could find no residue within the container -?!) I emailed MAC, but haven't heard a response. This shadow sold out incredibly fast and so far, is the only product to sell out. It is incredibly beautiful & has the right touch of shimmer without being a glitterbomb. I hope MAC re-promotes this one!

I also did a quick FOTD using these items. 

Excuse the dumb/tired look on my face...been taking care of bb kittehz non-stop for a month ;D

Sugarpill's Asylum back in stock!

Happy happy, joy joy! Hahah :) Sugarpill's Asylum Chroma Lust is back in stock! I have been drooling over this loose shadow since November & am sooo happy to have my hands on it!

As promised on my original Sugarpill review, here is a swatch of Asylum!

  Asylum; A medium, nearly blood red with a subtle sparkle that's just enough to make it slightly reflective.

On the lips, smoothed over a basic red lipstick. It was actually much deeper than it appears in the swatch here, so gorgeous!

Yes, I'm watching Harry Potter ;3

And a quick EOTD using Asylum & a random Inglot purple ;D

For me, this is a truly unique colour to my collection. Admittedly, I do not own a lot of red shades, but this is the most vibrant loose shade I own of it's kind. For the EOTD, I packed it over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy which made it look SO amazing & sparkly. So happy it's back in stock!

Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Swatches!

Eeeek! Sorry I haven't posted in two weeks! Life has been so hectic for me as of late; working tons & trying to figure out some future plans! But, I received my Inglot order today & really wanted to share it with you all!

If you may have heard recently, Inglot released their entire line of matte eyeshadows for the Freedom System. As soon as I read about it, I hopped on the website & ordered 15 shadows. I'm a really big fan of their mattes; they have a matte look but a creamy consistency. 

Not sure why the photos look so weird, but they're pretty large, so click 'em for better detail ;D

I'll post some new looks soon (yay, day off tomorrow!) and another contest within the next week or so!

Teal makeup to match my new teal 'do ;D

I finally did it. I've been wanting teal hair for SO long. & A few nights ago, I gathered up the courage & the bleach and went ahead and just did it. I really wanted the top half of my head to be teal, but, bleaching that red out was such a pain in the bum, so I did just a few middle layers.

Tonight, after working on a makeup project, I went ahead and did some makeup to match ;D I was pretty happy with the outcome of the look & the hair, so I thought I would post it here!

Also, this is my first ever FOTD without foundation. I've been using one of those fancy BB creams & it SAVED my skin! I just applied that & MAC Skinfinish Natural :D Yay, confidence!
