Question of the Week:

What is your favorite skincare line?

B says, “That’s a tough one. I review quite of a few of them and have my favorites sprinkled throughout many brands. But if I had to choose, I’d roll with Desert Essence; an all natural skincare line that has a cleanser and moisturizer that is PERFECT for my skin.

What’s your favorite skincare line? Isn’t it soooo hard to choose?

Question of the Week:

What’s the one shade you wish you could pull off, but can’t?

B says, “Call it cocky or confident but I feel like I wear any and every shade. However, the one shade that I don’t think compliments me best are pale pink lipsticks. I haaaaate the way they look on richly hued (thanks for that term, Sam Fine!) skin. It’s just not pretty to me.

What about you? What shade is just NOT your friend?

See you next week!

FOTD Friday: MAC’s Hocus Pocus is magical!

It’s been a while since a makeup collection has made me actually want to spend money. Which sounds horrible but between attempting to find financial security and feeling like I have enough when it comes to makeup, I’ve got to be really selective when it comes to bringing home new beauty stuffs. The MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions collection had me super hyped up.

While I only snagged a shadow and two glosses, I want to feature them individually. Because they are just that awesome. First up is The Makeup Girl’s Hocus Pocus.

Watch the magic behind this stunning shadow…

MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions collection

When I found out that MAC Cosmetics gathered some of their favorite bloggers to put together a collection of their customized lippies and shadows, I was geeked up. I mean, hello, this showed that bloggers have voices that are valued! I saw it as an enormous step up for dedicated bloggers everywhere.

And then I saw promo photos of the collection…

I’m supposed to be on makeup promotion. Just what in the world am I going to do now?

Eyeshadows

Lipglasses

You can’t tell me that every shade isn’t calling your name.
