MAC Lipstick - Moxie

Aug 17, 2012

Since I was hauling Candy Yum-Yum, I decided to check out another of the re-launched shades that MAC was offering.  Moxie is a gorgeous pink color with a tinge of red in it.  I absolutely love it!

MAC Lipstick 
Shade Purchased: Moxie (Limited Edition)

Finish:  Matte

Price: $15.00 USD

Now this shade is the perfect Sabrina color.  It's matte, it's sophisticated pink and it's husband approved.

MAC Lipstick - Candy Yum-Yum

Aug 14, 2012

So I'm supposedly on a no buy which lasted for about a half of a second once I saw that the much sought after Candy Yum-Yum was in stock on MAC's website.  I had to have it so of course I put a couple in my cart and checked out!  I also bought a couple of other things but I'll save those for a different post.

MAC Lipstick 
Shade Purchased:  Candy Yum-Yum (Limited Edition)
Finish:  Matte
Price: $15.00 USD

As you can probably tell, it leans a little purple on me for some reason.

I like this shade a lot but I was a bit disappointed.  It's a pretty lipstick but because of it's popularity, I was expecting to be wowed and I just wasn't.  It is a very bright matte neon pink and with these types of shades, I like to wear them lighted blotted on the lips so that it is flattering on me.  I haven't paired this with a lipgloss yet but I bet a pink dazzleglass would look great over this shade.

So did any of you haul this lippie or was I the only one giving in to the hype?

theBalm Shady Lady Palette Volumes 1, 2 & 3

Aug 3, 2012

A few months ago theBalm cosmetics had a  deal in which you could get all three Shady Lady palettes for the price of one.  I of course couldn't resist so I went ahead and purchased them.  Well now the deal is back on so I thought I would share swatches in case you are interested in the palettes.  

The Deal
"Triple Play Friday is back...Get all three shadyLady palettes for the price of one! Visit on August 3rd from 12am EST to 11:59pm EST to order this one-day-only deal. No special codes necessary. Shipping within the United States is $3.28. For international orders standard shipping rates apply: please see website for details. One purchase per household, while supplies last." 

Available at theBalm

theBalm Shady Lady Volume 1

theBalm Shady Lady Volume 2

theBalm Shady Lady Volume 3

These palettes normally retail for #39.50 USD each, but with today's deal, you can get all three for that price.  I think it is a great deal.

Let me know if you haul these or if you already have them!
