You know that one makeup item that you tell (or maybe your friends and family are daring enough to tell you) yourself you shouldn’t be wearing? For me it’s highlighter…I’ve actually come to terms with telling myself, “No, you can’t wear shimmery highlighter.”
Yay me! I’m so happy when I give myself a good talking to and I listen.
I can’t really take advantage of highlighters because I have a round face and wearing them just makes things look even rounder. Not a good look.
However, I collect ‘em like the crazy beauty junkie I am. I have zillions of pretty powders that I don’t really use because if you notice, most of ‘em, almost always, have shimmer.
Of course, Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée pops up as part of their Fall 2011 Collection and my hands begin to sweat because I really need “da shimmery” powder.
Lucky enough I got one to show you today!
I are has lol’s at DuWop for finally releasing their Isla Sirena Collection. Translation: I’m laughing my ass off that the Isla Sirena Collection finally launched.
Jebus Christo people. It’s July, Pirates released in May! Who’s your marketing executive? Fire them! I’m off my pirate kick people and I’m on to wizards and He Who Must Not Be Named. It’s JULY damnit! It’s Harry Potter time. Mermaid and Pirate time be so over dood!
I’m officially over this collection and I do solemnly swear I looked but did not buy a single piece. Proud of me much?
Although…I can’t promise I won’t indulge if some sale pops up!
But DuWop stays near and dear to my heart regardless of their little pirate-y mishap (yo ho ho no pirate’s life for you DuWop) and I’ve happily incorporated their Angel Washes into my Summer regime. I love these!
MAC Semi-Precious releases this week. I’m really hyped even though I already previewed the collection a few weeks ago and wasn’t particularly excited I’m still interested in the brushes as they look incredible.
I will tell you one thing that got me excited, The Mineralize Skinfinish in Rose Quartz.
It’s rocking my socks right off at the moment.
Let it be known I was every so relieved after viewing the QVC Presentation Video that I wasn’t crazy about the overall finish I got with the Smashbox FAQ’s 7 Piece Color Collection.
I recently hauled this on Auto Delivery from QVC because it was a stupendous deal. After receiving it I was in awe over the promo model’s overall look and was every so eager to try it out.
I totally couldn’t master the look but after seeing the video on QVC I realized the two looks are completely and utterly different and the one on QVC looks more like what I came out with than what was included in the how to guide in the set.
Phew! It’s always nice to know I’m NOT going crazy because believe me I feel on the brink of it daily.
Let’s take a look at this set and more on my rant about the model later!
I was pleasantly surprised with the MAC Fashion Flower Collection as I didn’t realize they would have a cute floral imprint on the shadows and Beauty Powders. Did anyone know about that? It was news to me.
I got the shadows and Beauty Powder in yesterday’s mail so here’s some swatches and a review.
Pixi has a new Radiance Powder that I can squeal over this Spring. Remember the Pixi Lumi Luxe Bronzer Palette I loved so much last year?
This is a follow up palette in the same vein but not a bronzer, a highlighter!
Let’s take a peek!
