MAC A Novel Romance Collection: Haul and Swatches!

Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

So today you get to hear about my very unique experience being both a makeup addict and a working girl. I spent most of yesterday afternoon calling all the different MAC counters in my city, asking if they would hold the two measly products I wanted from the new collection. Over and over again they said no, and I actually got kinda scared. I started thinking to myself. If I am unable to get my hands on these products, I shall be very put out.

Eh. Maybe not. But still.

People hoard MAC LE lipsticks like they're rare artifacts (and then sell them on eBay for $40, but I digress), and I was scared that I wouldn't get my hands on the two things I really wanted. I decided to phone in my order, so I set my alarm at work for 10 am and dialed faster than those nasty people over-order LE MAC lipsticks.

Needless to say, those babies are now mine.

July Favorites :) MAC, Bobbi Brown, Drugstore, and more!

Hey guys!

So July suddenly became August, which for me brought a lot of new opportunities as far as my career and relationships are concerned :) I hope this summer has been as good to you as it was to me! This post will be a quick overview of the products that got me through hot summer days and cool nights :)

Here stands Phoebe, the goddess of makeup. She has blessed this month's offerings.
 As you can probably tell, my favorites are a bit MAC-heavy but do include some drugstore classics. The age is also all over the place, seeing as some products are brand-spankin' new and others I've had for almost a year now :)

This review might influence future makeup purchases.

It's official. I'm in love. I wanted to meet him in person before I said anything (our relationship had mostly taken place online), but the moment I saw him, I knew.

Here's my love, the new LORAC PRO Palette 2.

Five Ways to Wear MAC's Riot House Lipstick!

Hey, guys!

Long time no see! For this post, I've got something a little different. I know the MAC Osbournes collection came out recently, and if you were lucky enough to snag what you wanted, congratulations! I got the Riot House lipstick because it was just the most adorable color ever, but then I realized that it is not necessarily the most wearable color for anyone above an NW20. SOOOOO..... Naturally I had to find some ways to make it more wearable! I found five different ways (with a mix of high end, limited edition, and drugstore) to wear Riot House without looking dead!

Ah! scary color! nooooooooooo

MAC Alluring Aquatic Haul and Review!

Hey, guys!

I'm back with more! So my MAC counter just released the Alluring Aquatic collection this morning, and you can bet I was there within the hour. Whether or not you can believe it, some of the stuff I wanted was sold out before I even walked into the store. I know. Whatever. 

I could go into a rant about people that go to MAC and buy out limited edition products only to sell them at a ridiculously inflated price later on, but I won't. You're mean and I hate you.

Urban Decay Electric Palette! Swatches and Review!

Hey, guys!

Soooooo. I am officially a college graduate. I graduated from Baylor University this last Saturday, and it was a mind-blowingly amazing experience. I spent the weekend with so many great friends and family and now I am on the job hunt! Before, however, I decided to stop at Sephora and get myself a few graduation presents. The first present I got myself is the Urban Decay Electric palette! Yaaay!
