Guest Post: Review and swatches of MAC Quite Cute collection

MAC’s latest collection Quite Cute was released earlier this month on April 7th. I have a weakness for pastels so I picked up a few things from the collection. I also picked up a Gold Deposit Mineralize Skin Finish. It’s a part of the other collection released this month from MAC, Bronze Everyday. I was almost out of my favorite foundation MAC’s Pro Longwear (NW50) so I picked up my second bottle. I am addicted to it. It lasts longer than any other foundation that I have tried. I just set it and forget it, I’m good for ten or more hours. Amazing!

Check out the pictures and swatches of my haul.

Green Tea for me. Thanks St. Ives!

Okay, be honest…who else grew used St. Ives Apricot Scrub back in the day? I know I did! It was a stable in my college dorm rooms. St. Ives is back with another scrub, this time using Green Tea. And just as good as that is the Naturally Clear Green Tea Cleanser.

Both are  geared towards treating acne and retail for under $6. I’m not even kidding.

Shellac Update

2 weeks passed and as promised I am giving y’all an update on my experience with the gel nail treatment. If you missed my initial post, check it out here.

After 2 weeks the nails were STILL shinning so as far as staying glossy and wet-looking, Shellac nails deliver. And that’s not all…

LUSH Bath Bomb: Dragon’s Egg…yummy!

Not that I actually tasted this thing. That would be bad. VERY bad. Watching this bath bomb spin around in the tub reminded me of orange sherbet. My Grandma in Miami and I would eat that ALL the time.

Doesn’t that look cool?

Dragon’s Egg is a citrus-y bath bomb with notes of lemon and bergamot. It smells divine but what it DOES is even better. After spinning and twirling and going from color to color, it oozes beautiful gold glitter everywhere.

It was small enough to where it didn’t irritate my skin but left me in a beautiful tub of orange water. I loved this one. It may be AS good as my Twilight bath bomb.

Have you tried Dragon’s Egg bath bomb yet?

Kiss My Face Olive & Aloe Soap. But it’s not purty.

I’m a total Kiss My Face fan but I’m on the fence about this soap.

It has a grassy/plant-y smell and the color of the bar isn’t all that attractive. The saving grace of this soap, however, is how good it makes my skin feel. And it contains so few ingredients that you don’t have to worry about your skin flaring up. The aloe is soothing and the olive oil is moisturizing. They are available in several fragrances (Olive & Honey, Olive & Tea Tree, Olive & Lavender, etc) and you can snag 4 bars for under $5.99.

Still. There’s something about the color of the bar that makes me unhappy. Am I exaggerating? Whatcha think?
