MAC Surf The Ocean Crushed Metallic Pigments

What MAC says about them: A style-wave of four limited edition shades of crushed metallic pigment individually presented in a see-through stack. Cool as water, blue and aqua-green shades shimmer amidst bronze, silver, and platinum frost. Limited edition.

What I say about them: I have been craving these Pigments for a while and went to the Covent Gardens MAC store and they were sold out :( so i went to Westfield this morning yup on a Friday morning and went for a visit to MAC. Thank goodness they were not sold out! I got them!! so i have been playing around with them this afternoon and to my happiness the color payoff is gorgeous! really really love them!

Because I was at Westfield I couldn’t help but stop in to Inglot cosmetics another brand everyone should buy. And got a few eyeshadows there. The brightness of their colors and the range of colors is absolutely amazing! So as makeup days goes it was a great one :)

One more thing! Clinique in House of Fraser has a giveaway today!! either in the one in Westfield or on Oxford st. Go to the counter and “check in” on your BlackBerry through places and show it to the Beauty Advisor there and get a free Airbrush Undereye Concealer!! I did it go for it!!

Well i have had one of the worst evenings of my life!!!

It started well with me washing all my brushes coz I had a makeup job this evening. I cleaned my airbrushing machine and tidied my case up and put everything that was in my handbag into the makeup case all the lipglosses that were floating around the house and all over my bags.
My hubby came to pick me up because we were going to visit my grandparents in Manhattan. We put the suitcase in the back of the car and we were off. had a great dinner with the grandparents and my daughter was acting all cute which was perfect. We drove home and i didnt end up needing my makeup just yet coz my friend was running late so we went home first. Got out of the car and i ask my hubby where is my makeup case? he looked and it wasnt there. wioth heavy hearts we took my daughter inside to put her to sleep and while my hubby did that i went back out to look through the car (not a huge car) still not there. OMG basically all my makeup that i have bought throughout this past year lets say it totals near $3000 has been stolen. I am totally dying and stressing out. I dunno what to do? All i have now is one lip gloss and one bronzer. I bought over $100 of makeup last week! I am so stressed! I cant do my makeup for work tomorrow!! What am I going to do?

My husband was so great he went back to look for it and filed a police report for me!!

MAC Set
I bought this set on Thursday last week when I went shopping and I love it!! It is the perfect pink set for your lips. I had been looking for a good pink that is not too light and not too dark and this one fits just perfectly!! Th only problem is that it’s a limited edition for the holidays!!

Pink puts a spell on you, and with its trio of Dream Lipstick (pink Frost), Dervish Lip Pencil (Pink & promo-sized) and Baby Sparks Dazzleglass (gorgeous and sparkly and pink), this lip kit is no different. Comes in a small, stylish rectangular makeup bag of polished silvery-pewter vinyl, the zip adorned with a round bead and grosgrain ribbon detail. Limited edition.

4″ x 2.5″ x 2.5″
US $36.00

mineralized eye shadowA sheer, pearled, mineralized powder Eye Shadow with two shades baked together in one pan. Superfine, lightweight: provides a softly tinted, reflective shimmer on the skin with a delicate sense of dimension. Subtly builds colour and shine. Can be worn on face, eyes or body.

It comes in four colors:
Mineralize black w/ gold bronze pearl (Frost)
Mineralize black w/ pinkish purple pearl (Frost)
Mineralize black w/ silver pearl (Frost)
Mineralize black with blue pearl (Frost)

I bought it in the black with the blue pearl. It is a gorgeous color and can be used either wet or dry and as a liner as well as an eyeshadow.
The only problem with it is that it was a limited edition and is not sold anymore! I went to macy’s to go buy it and the woman said that there wasnt anymore, but i went back later and the woman had it. I now regret not buying it in all colors!!

MAC dazzleglass creme! M∙A∙C cult favourite Dazzleglass with a creamier, smoother, but no less shiny or dazzling effect. For those who are drawn to the luxe of cream lips, but still want the dazzling allure of its inspiration, this is it.

I saw this the other day in Macy’s and i tried it on it is beyond gorgeous and slides on really smooth. The shine on this is awesome and the little specks of glitter in this is for the brave and bold people out there who love to be different and fun. It is not a sticky lipgloss but a very wet and smooth one.

I love it and have used it every day since I got it!!

It comes in 9 different colors.

I’m on a roll!! Doing face charts is so fun. I have done four face charts since last night when I went to MAC to sign up for my MAC pro account! Which is very exciting. They are so friendly there, i walked in and asked if i could sign up and the girl that served me was so nice and friendly and she was all helpful. I asked her if i could have a face chart and she was like sure with pleasure and gave me a whole pack of 250!!! So yes i have some leeway if I don’t like what i do and decide to start a new one!!

Fun to fill in

So there it is!!

Looking forward to my airbrushing course on Sunday with Orlando!!


<3 Mascara <3
This has to be my fave product of them all! It helps open the eye, it defines the lashes and makes them curly an appear longer.

Ways to put it on that make your eyelashes go on for miles and curl!!
first things first you need need need an eyelash curler. Start at the root of your eyelash and press down and hold for 3 seconds, then move a little further up the lash towards the tip and do the same and then once more at the tip and curly eyelashes here you are!! then if you have some fall down from the eyeshadow and your lashes look a bit “dusty” sweep mascara on the top part of your lashes to darken and then go for the usuall sweep on the bottom of the top eyelashes! wait for the first coat to dry and then sweep on a second coat.

Some of the mascaras i have tested.

Dior Backstage – it is a great mascara and does amazing things but it is on the expensive side. So far its my fave mascara wand brush!!

Lancome Hypnose – Also a great thickening and curling mascara i loved it. but again its on the expensive side.

MAC Zoomlash – Good mascara but i wouldnt neccesarily get it again not too expensive.

Maybelline Lash Stilleto – Love that mascara and its a great price. It def does wonders for the length and color of your lashes and the brush is a great brush and the mascara really does leave a patent look o your lashes.

Cover girl eyelights Mascara – Love this one as well, it has a little bit of a sparkle in it that goes with different colored eyes. i use the one for the green eyes and it works really well with the brown eyes that i have. the brush is also a great brush.

Thats it for now but feel free to post some of your fave mascaras and tell us why!!
