MAC All Woman Quad And MAC Fireside Eyeshadows

Hello Angels,

I tell ya this is the last of the MAC Holiday Collection.  Right Hand to my palettes.  LOL The last two items are the All Woman Palette and Fireside mineral eyeshadow.   They are from the MAC Strength and MAC Après Chic Collection.

I really had to think about buying the All Woman palette.   At first glance you're like eh I can live without it until you swatch it.   It is a quad of neutral colors that work well on someone with a warm skin tone.   Did I mention it is all in one quad?  So now I don't have to go searching for the colors.

Fireside mineralize eyeshadow has a iridescence to it.   It is what MAC calls a duochrome.   It is a red brown with a blue/ purple sheen.   I describe it as a neutral with a kick.   It would be a nice sweep of color on the lid during the day.   At night you could wear it wet to amplify the colors.

Here is a shot before I show you the swatches.   They are definitely colors you can get a lot of use from.   So need to worry about them staying in your stash.

Across the top:
Fireside Eyeshadow

Bottom Left to Right:
Flawless figure- frosted white
Brains and Brawn- matte gray brown
All Woman- Dark gray green with a slight shimmer
Black Magique- Brown/Black matte


I think you can use this palette to make a very daytime friendly smokey eye that can transition from day to night.   Both of these items may be available at your local counter if you cannot find them here
.   Give them a swatch in person and see if you like them for yourself.

Till next time Angels

MAC Apres Chic

Hello Angels,

I am back with my purchases from the MAC Après Chic Collection. I have to say that this is a very warm natural collection.   It is a welcome break from a lot of the in your face colors of the past.   In this picture we have Porcelain Pink and Stereo Rose Mineralized Skinfinish (From the In the Groove Collection) as well as Hot Chocolate Satin finish lipstick.

The other two boxes are Good Times (From Taste Temptations) and Impossibly Sweet (From Glamourdaze Collection) lipglasses.   They were needing a good home and I was happy to house them.   LOL.

From left to right you have Porcelain Pink, Stereo Rose, and Hot Chocoloate.

Porcelain pink is a warm pink with warm gold tones.   It a beautiful highlight for those pinks that don't look like bubble gum.  Stereo Rose is a pinky/coral with gold veining.  This is definitely for all warm toned skin tones.
Hot Chocolate is just beautiful.  It is a satin plum brown lipstick that can be made plummier or browner depending on the lipliner.  I LOVE it.  It goes on beautifully.

From left to right:
Porcelain Pink (Goldy/Pink)
Stereo Rose (Corally/Gold)
Hot Chocolate lipstick (plum brown) This is my new deeper Naomi Campbell lip. LOL

From Left to right
Good Times Lipglass: pale mauve
Impossibly Sweet : pink with multicolor pearls.

These are your normal lipglasses.   They have lots of color with a tacky finish.   I plan to wear them alone or layered over lipsticks.   This can give a whole new look to a lippie.

MAC Strength Collection Lipsticks

Hello Angels,

I would love to say that I am done with the MAC holiday collections.....I just keep on finding things to buy. Jeez I need money for the MAC Archie collection that is coming out in a few weeks. Here are the lipsticks that are a part of that collection.

From left to right:
Party Parrot- pink coral (matte finish)
Pink Pigeon- hot pink (matte finish)
Strong Woman- warm purple(matte finish)
Firm Form- warm brown/black with gold glitter (matte finish)

The first two lipsticks are repromotes which I purchased from the Iris Apfel collection. The last two are my latest purchases.

Here are the lipstick swatches from left to right:
Party Parrot
Pink Pigeon
Strong Woman
Firm Form

Pink Pigeon and Party Parrot are some of my favorite pinks. They are vibrant and the matte finish goes on smoothly without tugging at your lips.  Strong Woman is a beautiful warm purple and alternative to the cool bright purples in other collections.
Firm Form is a warm black with brown undertones that has fine gold glitter. Depending on which lipliner you use, it you can make it look browner or blacker. It was a welcome addition to my stash.

All of these lipsticks have been sold out and restocked here
. If you really like the colors, try calling around at your local counter to see if there are any stragglers. LOL

If you find them, you will love them.

LaFemme Blushes

Hi Angels, come in closer...LOL
I am going to let you in on an industry pearl.   What would you say if I told you that you could find blushes that are as pigmented and pretty as MAC and NARS for about five dollars a pop?

Are you dying to know yet? LOL

Look below. You will find my latest haul of LaFemme blushes. I bought them in palette form so I could put them in a sturdy black palette for less than ten bucks made just for them.   Here are the colors from left to right:
Mauve Sparkle, Mulberry, Bordeaux, Golden Ruby, Purple Passion, and Lilac Champagne.

Here are the blushes swatched. As you can see they are pretty true to the color in the pan.   This was with one pass on each blush.   Each color can be built up or toned down to your liking.
Here are the second set that go into the twelve well palette.
From left to right you have: Mocha, Plum Frost, Indian Rose, Peach Sparkle Dusty Rose and Crystal cafe.  These are also beautiful colors. You will see the colors better in the swatches.
Here are the second set of blushes swatched from left to right:
Mocha, Plum Frost, Indian Rose, Peach Sparkle, Dusty Rose and Crystal Cafe.   Just pretty!

All of these colors and more are available at MakeUpMania

and Camera Ready Cosmetics for purchase.   For the price of two NARS blushes and 4 MAC blushes you get twelve slighty smaller blushes and a palette. There is even a dupe for NARS' best selling blush Orgasm.   It is called coral spice and of course it never stays in stock. Good buy? I guess you will have to be the judge.

Try them out for yourselves!

MAC Glamourdaz​e Collection

Hi Angels,
I am back with one of a few reviews from MAC's several holiday collections. I believe there were six this year. I will be reviewing what I purchased from three of the collections. As my collection gets larger I am trying to buy what is most unique in every release.

The picture below was the invite for MAC's Glamourdaze collection. Isn't pretty? Now on to the review......

Here are my goodies from right to bottom: Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish (a re-release from the Extra Dimension Collection), I'm the One blush, Small Vanity Blush and Outrageously Fun lipstick.

Here is a picture before they are swatched:

Here are the lovelies swatched from left to right: Superb (a smooth textured white gold skinfinish) , I'm the One (a blue pink matte blush), Small Vanity (a pinky brown matte blush) and Outrageously Fun (a purply/pink blue based cremesheen lipstick).

I was pleasantly surprised by my goodies. You are able to create a very girly and fun look with these items.

I  returned I'm the One blush because it looked like Pink Peony Blush which I already owned.  When I returned the I am the One blush, I then picked up Glamourdaze lipstick. It is also a cremesheen. It is a pretty browny/purply/pink that looks beautiful with Small Vanity blush. I even bought a back up. So that tells you how much I like it.

Swatched from top to bottom: Glamourdaze and Outrageously Fun:

These lipsticks sold out when they went online. There are still pieces of this collection lurking online at MAC and in stores. It never hurts to ask.

Till next time Angels...
