MAC Style Warrior 2009 Summer Color Collection

“Safari” fashion has been big this summer. Everything is khaki, olive and animal print. MAC has introduced “Style Warrior” for this summer. It’s style is still on par with other brands for this summer but it is much more “fierce”.

The packaging for all of the products is bronze with animal prints and “tribal” designs. I am a sucker for anything animal print so I really like the limited edition packaging.I believe the “leopard” print is for warmer undertones and the “zebra” print is for cooler undertones… Continue reading

A Little Bitter: MAC Cult of Cherry Eye Shadow Quad in Tempting

MAC has launched this season’s Cult of Cherry which I dig. I love dark lips and this collection offers that. It is a pretty edgy look. MAC made a long ass video for the collection too that can be viewed on the website. It also has three eyeshadow quads but I’m going to review Tempting. Tempting is pretty nice and kind of boring except for the acidic pop of the green which I find so similar to the eye shadow Bitter. Bitter is one of my favorite eyeshadows. I miss it with Chrome Yellow… Continue reading

My Love Of Dark Lipstick: MAC Viva Glam III Lipstick Look

I love dark lips which led me to my good friend MAC Viva Glam III Lipstick. This shade is a matte and mute brownish plum. It is chock full of pigment and offers full coverage with a lovely matte finish. I admit that sometimes it is tricky. If you must wear lip balm under this color make sure it is applied evenly or this lipstick will apply very splotchy and make you look kind of like a pit bull. This color was launched in 2000 and I still love it. It comes in the Viva Glam red and black bullet… Continue reading

Eau My It’s Sci-Fi!

Can’t say I haven’t seen this “trend” coming for sometime. I’ve always been in love with the lovely alien princesses on the 60’s Star Trek episodes. You know the ones coated in silver paint and they’re supposed to be aliens, but instead they’re mega hot human burlesque babes from the era. Anyways, I was totally siked about MAC’s new color collection (yes, I still get excited despite the fact that MAC has a new color collection out like every hour.) Anyways, the color collection is Neo Sci-Fi made to recreate this swanky, costumey, sex-pot, nerdy male fantasy image… Continue reading

Tangerine Dream: 5 Citrus Inspired Cosmetics

Oh, the weather is getting warmer which means that I’m preparing for summer. Or at least my summer makeup trends. Every year I get so amped about oranges, corals, tangerines. My first lovely product is #1 Nars Taj Mahal Powder Blush. It is a beautiful, vivid burnt orange with tons of gold shimmer. It melts into my pale complexion . For years I was terrified of this color because I thought it would look strange on my skin. I thought it was for girls waaay darker than me. Finally, I put it on at Sephora and couldn’t believe how bright… Continue reading
