I picked up two of the new MAC Apres Chic Mineralized Lip Balms (long name, whoo!). The lovely woman who helped me at MAC said these are now going to part of the permanent line, but don’t quote me on it.
I love these! They are moisturizing, have a tint of color and, last like MAC lip glosses (which is saying, a long time). They also smell of the MAC vanilla, which I am a huge fan of. They are definitely taking over my lip glosses for winter. I got Stay Warm!, a creamy pink (I love creamy pink lip-everythings) and Rosy Romance, a plum with gold shimmer, which is just so perfect for winter I couldn’t resist.
Pictures and swatches below!

I’m going to start with a product that everyone should love. The Urban Decay Naked palette! If I wasn’t makeup obsessed, this palette would be all I needed to do eye makeup. Its gorgeous! All the colors are flattering, and complement each other. The eyeshadows are all pigmented, easy to blend, and long lasting. It is, without fail, my favorite eyeshadow palette. Its also one of the first pieces of makeup I picked up and, almost certainly part of what fueled the addiction.
Here are close-ups of all the colors. They are more than gently used, I know.
If you dont own any eyeshadow, this is the perfect way to get started! Or even finished. If you are more mature in age, you might want to pick up an all matte palette, as it will complement your skin more.
I know this one is an oldie, but its a bestie in my book. It also has great colors for the new copper/bronze eye look. Use smog all over your lid and darkhorse (or buck) in the crease to create this trend, its kind of an update on the gold metallic eye look (which you can also do with this palette! How convenient!!).
Hi and happy weekend!
Makeup is one of those things you shouldn’t take too seriously. It gives you a chance to have fun and experiment. Its also not anything to be afraid of, its made to play with. Before I start all the product reviews, tutorials and pictures, I wanted to say that makeup is fun, and I hope you have fun reading and watching how I use my makeup here.
By the way, how amazing is Harrison Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark? He makes doing laundry infinitely better.
