Brighten Up Your Eyes!

24 Mar

Sometimes it is just fun to use crazy and fun color eyeshadow!  You don’t have to do it everyday but it always is fun to try new things with your makeup!  Plus who doesn’t love a purple eyeshadow?  This summer MAC has launched several new collections with a lot of pop color.  I really like the new Shop Collection.  It is full of fun bright colors for your eyes, lips and nails.  I bought the Shop & Drop eye palette ($38 www.maccosmetics.com) and it is 4 colors that you can use together  or separate  to get different looks.  They are bright and fun and it makes me happy to use them!  Plus the packaging is so cute!!  I think everyone should experiment with the pop colors that are out for Spring because it is just so fun!  Don’t be shy, give it a try!  Remember you can always wash it off!

Is it lipstick or lipgloss?

22 Feb

I don’t know if you are like me and get annoyed when your lip gloss has that really “tacky” or “sticky” feeling.   With most lip gloss it seems that my hair is constantly getting stuck in it or it makes my mouth feel gooey.  However, this is a catch 22 because I also like it to help add some moisture over lipstick…so as it goes I still apply the stuff even though most of the time it gets on my nerves…  This is how I felt until the other day when I discovered MAC’s Kissable Lip Color ($19 www.maccosmetics.com).  This stuff is AMAZING!  It comes in a tube with a wand just like lip gloss, but it is creamy and has the color of a lipstick!  It feels so smooth and soft on your lips.  You really get the best of both worlds between lipsticks and lip gloss with this product.  I know a lot of my friends think lipstick is a “committment” and a little too “serious” for them so they prefer gloss, but with this it is a lot more casual and you don’t have to commit to the color all day.  I bought it in two shades, one neutral and one a little darker.  They both go on great and I love how creamy and soft they make my lips feel.  I did not have any problems with my hair getting stuck in it and it lasted for quite a while.  The only thing is that it does not have the super shiny look that a gloss has.  I love this because it is so easy to apply and it is very comfortable on my lips.   If you struggle with gloss and don’t care too much for lipstick, then this would be perfect for you!  It just came out this spring so there is a limited edition of 4 colors at the moment.  Give this a try I know you will love it!
