Firstly woahhh its been ages and i've been wanting to come back but cannot believe how busy I have been.. last week was crazy.. from grad fairs, to partys, to funerals :(.. I managed to get back my beloved camera lead which obviously proved to me how much i cannot live without it lol!! anyways.. How have you all been?! Well I manged to get down to MAC of course the style black collection came out!! =] and although it took ages to actually come on the website, I managed to track down all that I wanted from the collection.. with a few extras! I haven't tried all of what I bought but I will fill ya in! Most of this collection is sold out now.. CRAZY.. but here we go!
I got the Volcanic ash thermal mask, this product is amazing.. I'm sooo glad I managed to get one! It leaves your skin feeling refreshed, smooth and glowing. You need only a little bit and it goes such a long way! I will take a pic of what it looks like on the face because it was so funny! Unlike most face masks that come on white, green, cream this one goes on black! lol.. LOVE LOVE this product though.. definitely worth it! Along with that I bought the Volcanic ash exfoliator which can be used on the face and the body! I haven't tried it yet but know its been given good reviews.. If it's anything like the facemask I know I will love it.. I will try and give you an update soon. I have dry/normal skin but can also be quite sensitive to face products, so hopefully this one will be ok.
Now onto the exciting makeup.. YAY! So I didn't buy that much really I had bought the smolder kohl pencil a few weeks before and I already have the penultimate liner.. BUTT I did get the 'Young Punk' mineralize eyeshadow! Can I just say how impressed I am with this product. I don't usually go for mineralize products as I often feel let down when it comes to the intensity of the colours. I only have one other mineralize eye shadow and that's the odd couple duo! anyway.. back to YOUNG PUNK.. it is an amazing mix of plum, burgundy, black with little frekcles of silver. To me its very similar to 'Beauty Marked' eyeshadow only that the pay off of young punk is more true to it's colour, it has more of the plum tone to it! I LOVE IT.. I wore it to smoke up a brown eye and it looked great I was happily pleased, I can't wait to use this product wet it must look so cool!
I also got the mattene 'Night Violet' lipstick, again I haven't tried it out, I swatched it and its lovely its a really deep violet but can be as intense as you like, you can defo build it up for a really strong, defined look. OR wear it toned down or glossed over It's an extremely pretty colour which I don't have a similar one too. The nearest I have to it is 'Rebel' but that has more of a cranberry tone!
Lastly I had a b2MAC and the lipstick i chose was 'SO CHAUD' this is the perfect bright orange matte lip.. It is so very similar to MORANGE that I already wear at any given opportunity lol.. but this so chaud is different because it has a slightly more reddish tone to it. I am a big fan of the bright lip, especially ORANGE/RED at the moment!
In the Style Black collection I picked up the 214 short shader brush, this is perfect for smudging out that kohl pencil creating maximum depth! I love it because the bristles are soft but stiff, so there is very little movement in the brush so its really great for creating a strong look and densely shading lids. From the Dsquared collection I got the 165 Tapered cheek/Highlight brush and like all MAC brushes this one is great, it feels amazing and is fab for applying blush/highlight softly and effectively.
I am really happy with my new purchases it had been ages since I bought anything.. I will let you know further reviews as I continue with the products. OHH lastly how cute are my cupcake pots.. I had to have these to add to my colourful and crowded dressing table. They are from urban outfitters! How adorable are they? I wanted to get this donut one, but stopped myself.. the more I think of it I might just have to have that one too!
PICS will be up soon.. more to come.. we have all been busy as we are transitioning in to different things in each of our lives so please bare with us.. and remember this is only the begining!
Lots of Love
