ColourPop was celebrating there 1st year Anniversary by giving away a FREE eye shadow called "Birthday Girl" with a purchase (over $30 is FREE S&H). The packaging is so pretty in hot pink and a picture of a cake in the center.
I purchased LIMITED "Where the Light Is" Collection. The set was a collaboration with Kathleen Lights - a YouTube guru.

And of course it didn't just stop there.

It's been a while since I have personally used any product from MAC besides eyeshadow, lipstick, lip gloss or lip liner. Lately, I've been having a little addiction to MAC foundation and skin products.
MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation is NEW to the Pro Longwear family and I LOVE IT!! It's a beautiful & lightweight foundation that makes your skin look super flawless. It's a medium to full coverage and can be used on any skin type.
I have heard wonderful reviews about this product but never thought of picking it up until now.
|MAC Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone Treatment|
This is good to use by those who have oily to oily-combination skin. You apply it to your T-zone, which are the areas that get oily on your face and it will absorb the oil to keep that area matte.
|MAC Brush #135|
MAC recently released new brushes and I have been EYING it for a hot minute especially this face brush in particular. I really like "paddle" brushes because I like to pat on my makeup opposed to brush/buff it on. I have large pores on my nose and during the summer it gets so bad due to the heat. I have to use skin treatment to reduce it and makeup to camouflage it. And when I use a brush, any in particular, around my nose area, I feel like it never looks like the rest of my face. Therefore, I would use a puff that helps apply powder better than a brush around my nose. All that said, this brush has been a win-win! It's the perfect tool to use around my nose and face and I LOVE IT!!! It helps leave my makeup application looking beautiful including my nose.
|MAC Pro Longwear eyeshadow 'Uninterrupted'|
I kept hearing people on YouTube mention that MAC was discontinuing these eyeshadows, but until my friend in my head Jean Francois mentioned it, I ran to MAC to purchase it. It's a great transitional color and I really like these type of "muddy" colors especially on green and brown eyes.
I highly recommend to check Jean Francois' channel on YouTube. He's an amazing artist.
|I used 'Uninterrupted' my crease|
Shroom is the first eye shadow I ever owned by MAC and my most repurchase color. I love this color because it's a satin finish so it gives a small amount of shimmer that is enough for a pop without over doing it. I love to use this under the brow bone.
|Left to Right: Teddy (matte brown with red under tone) and Costa Richie (chocolate brown with bronze)|
|Matte Lipstick: Top - Whirl / Bottom - Stone|
I love the lip pencil Whirl and have been using it since 2010. Yup, I even remember the year because my friend was getting married and I bought it specifically for the look that I was going for - Kim K. lips of course. I was super excited when MAC introduced Whirl as a lipstick so I had to snatch it up. I didn't pick-up Stone because at the time I thought it looked similar to color I purchased from Colourpop. It's not the same but are in the same family.
|Limited Nail Polish 'Washeteria'|
This is a limited color that came in the Wash and Dry Collection. It's a pretty teal color.
Rite was having 40% this brand and I wanted to try there highlighters and bronzer. When I saw this one in particular it says it gives a bronzer and highlight effect so I was super curious and anxious to try it. Not bad....picture above
It doesn't matter how old I get, I have accepted that acne is apart of my skin. I saw these products and wanted to try it. They both retailed at $9.99.
|Clinique Acne Solution Spot Healing Gel|
My coworker actually introduced this product to me and it's amazing. As soon as you get a pimple growing, you apply this baby on it (I like to use a Q-tip) and let it air dry. Now, it does have a horrible scent and is not recommended for those who have sensitive skin. It can also feel strong after it's been applied but then it settles. Overall, it works like a miracle. It helped reduce my acne spots quickly.
