MAC Lipsticks GALORE!!

Howdy-do, my precious cupcakes.

I got a suggestion from a few lovely followers to do some reviews. Specifically, on things that I got from a recent haul here.

The two lovely followers were beautiful Ashley and Olive, who were requesting lipstick and eyeshadow reviews. (Be expecting a lot of reviews in your future!) ;}

Soo, I took my three brand-spankin’-new MAC lipsticks and decided to swatch and describe them in detail.

First off, is sexy and red-hot Lady Danger.

First, the color is gorgeous. It’s a lovely orange-red with a matte finish, very classic and vivid. You can get rich color in one swipe, so pigmentation is no problem. Neither is staying power…this stuff sticks. (AND stains!!!)

Now, guys, this is a matte lipstick. If you have dryer lips, this will cling to those icky bits of dead skin. So, I suggest exfoliating and putting on a lip conditioner before you use this!

The next time you’re at a MAC counter, try this baby on. You won’t regret it!

Second is flashy Girl About Town.

This, in comparison to “Lady Danger”, is a thousand times more buttery. You can also build up the color, depending on if you want a sheer or opaque look.

Also, I loooove the color; it’s a medium fuchsia with blue undertones. On an olive-toned girl, it just makes my skin glow!  A cream/gloss finish isn’t half-bad either. It just looks so yummy on the lips!

LAST, but not least, angelic Creme Cup!

To be honest, this doesn’t swatch too well, but it looks amazing on the lips! It’s not your average boring nude, it’s a milky, sweet pink that won’t wash you out.

I can totally understand the hype on this one. If you want a “My Lips But Better”, or MLBB shade, try this one! It’s light and buildable, perfect for everyday or to pair with a smokey eye.

Staying power could be better, but I don’t mind reapplying this one. It’s so moisturizing and creamyyy. :}

Anyway, that’s all the lippies! I hope these reviews were helpful, and I apologize for keeping it brief.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I’d be glad to get back to you!

PEACE!!!!! <333

Starting a Diet, & New Fave Gloss

So I’m starting a diet…weighing about 126-127 pounds. I just thought that making little blogs to document my progress would help somewhat! I want to be healthy, ya know? Not a 90 pound model who vomits up every meal and is constantly poppin’ diet pills. 

I used to weigh 117, but then the holidays happened.  I really want to get back down to where I was! 

BUT ENOUGH ABOUT THAT. Let’s talk lip gloss. 

You guys know I love my lippies. I recently bought NYC’s Liquid Lip Shine in “Brighton Beach Peach”. It’s, like, the perf nude.

It has a straight, thin, flexible applicator that applies on the gloss smoothly. I swear these are a dupe for MAC lipglosses!! They smell like vanilla cupcakes, and stay on a decent amount of time..so they may become my yearlong favorite. 

Anyway, if you’re looking for a sweet burst of peachy color that smells like dessert, check out Brighton Beach Peach! 

And wish me luck on my diet, guys. I really want to get healthy by bikini season! ;} 

Mwah. Peace!

Dream Bouncy Blush UN-Hyped

Maybe she was born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline.

The Dream Bouncy Blush was a sort of craze. Everyone had to buy one. So squishy! So soft! So captivating in its mysteriousness. What was it like? How did it feel?

Well. I finally bought one. (A little late on the band-wagon, I know!) And so I thought I might do a review on it…in the color “Pink Plum”.

I love how it looks in it’s little pan, it reminds me of a plump, sweet fruit! The color is pretty basic, borderline fresh pink. It’s a cute color, but it’s not something I don’t already have.

Packaging is pretty adorable as well, but again, EH.

The interesting thing about the Dream Bouncy is the product. It’s creamy, squishy, and acts like a stain to the cheeks. It provides a nice, healthy tint, but it rubbed right off my skin!!!

PLUS, the swatch is pretty weak. It takes a ton of product for good color! :{

In my  opinion, you’re not missing much not buying these. On dryer skin, these COULD work…but I’m not so sure. It seems like these babies are pretty hit-and-miss. And yet, this is just another over-hype. :{

Have you tried any of the Dream Bouncy Blushes?

What did you think?

Did you like them?

KLuvYa! PEACE!
