MAC Dare to Wear Eyeshadow Review and Swatches

MAC Dare to Wear Eye Shadow 1

Aptly named Dare to Wear is a collection of crazily vibrant shades of MAC eyes shadows and lip glosses, daring you to wear such bold shades.

MAC Dare to Wear is what MAC C-Shock was to me three years ago, a reintroduction of what MAC does best, awe aspiring shades of shadow.

Maybe….

  • A. I’m getting too old.
  • B. I hated the finish on most of these.
  • C. I’m off the MAC bandwagon

Because I totally did not roll over and play dead when I saw this collection pop up. I’m in this brown eyeshadow stage right now, a place where I never thought I’d be, and aquas, greens, and my normal crazy shades of color are simply not as appealing as more neutral shades lately so maybe that’s what triggered my less than stellar excitement upon seeing Dare to Wear. Plus I kinda felt like the mattes and frost finishes prevented me from bothering as well…

Anyway!

I did get a few MAC Dare to Wear shades to try out.

Wanna peep?

Avon ANEW Youth-Awakening Eyeshadow and Primer Kit Review and Swatches

I got an earworm this morning and it goes something like this, “So I put my hands up, They’re playing my song, And the butterflys fly away! Noddin’ my head like yeah, Moving my hips like yeah, And I got my hands up, They’re playin my song, I know I’m gonna be ok Yeah, It’s a party in the USA, Yeah, It’s a party in the USA!

Oh god. Someone stop me please.

Miley Cyrus was on Graham Norton and I was flipping through it this morning now I can’t get the damn song out of my head. Ugh. I wanted to see Jack Whitehall but bloody Miley kept getting in the way grrrr!

Anyway.

That was so off the topic of makeup right?

Anyone see the new Avon ANEW Youth-Awakening Eyeshadow and Primer Kit? Possibly a cool budget pick!

Smashbox Pro Waterproof Second Skin Concealer Review and Swatches

I’m in a constant battle with dark circles, bane of my utter bloody existence. The makeup gods look down on me and cackle punishing me with not only dark circles but puffiness. I think I’m in more of a battle with the bulge (puffiness) than I am with dark circles most days of my life.

So of course I’m all about trying as many concealers as my make up life permits. I have about 25 different concealers that I rotate daily to see which gets me the most flawless look of all and I’m constantly trying new ones. Smashbox Pro Waterproof Second Skin Concealer is one that recently crossed my dark circle path and I’ve been having a little test with it this week and I gotta say for those of you with dark circles you’ll probably likey this little guy alot.

Stila Custom Color Blush Review and Swatches

Ahhhh pink. For a long time it was my signature shade of choice. Pink always gives my cheeks a youthful glow so I’m all over it like white on rice. The Stila Fall Collection 2010 has released and it’s all about that perfect shade of color for cheeks.

Now, I don’t really commonly associate the shade of pink with Fall but I can’t deny that I’m really loving hard on the Stila Custom Color Blush.
