Sneak Peek: MAC Riveting Photos and Review

MAC Riveting 1

I was born in the ahem…err…the 70’s. So technically my age of music fell into the 90’s as these were my teen/tween years but like most things in my life, my taste in music was and still is as unconventional as all hell. My sister was an 80’s child and from her I learned to appreciate some great one hit wonders from the early and late 80’s, this was music at it’s best. I was probably six when I developed my first crush on Robert Smith and it’s carried through many a year, thank you 1980’s.

Mind you Robert circa 1980’s was fantastic but not so much when you jump forward over 20 years….it’s ok though, I’ll take him anyway I can get him.

The new MAC Riveting Collection hits the shelf in a few weeks and brings about that retro 80’s glam feel for me with a bit of rock n’ roll thrown in for good measure.

Not everyone can pull off MAC Riveting but I imagine half of us are going to have a bloody great time trying.

Beauty Battle: The Skin Food Wash Off Masks Versus Lush Skincare Masks

beauty battle

Let me tell you a story…..hopefully you like these long stories I get into. Ok, so I’m a big Lush skin care fan but lately I’ve been cheating with Korean brand, the Skin Food. This stuff is really great for my skin and I’ve been using it’s super power human strength to make my skin glow.

One thing I’ve never been too big a fan with when it comes to Lush is their face masks. I love some of the interesting promises that the masks make but I’ve never actually experienced the benefits for myself after using them. They are nice to have items but I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing incredible, awe aspiring results from ‘em!

I discovered The Skin Food Face Masks and I swear I can’t live without this good stuff! Now we’re talking results!

I’ve pitted The Skin Food Wash Off Masks against Lush Face Masks in a Beauty Battle. It’s easy enough to see who’ll win this battle but take the jump to find out for yourself!
