Hey Guys! Today I finally got my MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in "Pure Heroine" from the Collaboration they did with Pop Sensation Lorde. This is a limited edition Lipstick inspired by Lorde's trade mark Plum lips. The color is a rich plum color with a matte finish. Like most MAC lipsticks, this one has a velvety soft feel which I really love. This color is very deep So it's not the most wearable color. I love plum berry lips and yet this is a deeper color than what I'm used to.
This would be a really great color for the up coming seasons Fall and Winter. Usually plum color lipsticks are very popular for that time of the year, and I can really see myself rocking this color all winter long. With a nude Eye it
would really look great. I wouldn't wear this Lipstick with bright eyeshadows, I think it would be a little too much.
Here's a swatch of this lipstick. As you can see, it is a very deep plum color that can definitely be build up as while applying. Now I just need to find a lipgloss that could match it.
Over all it's a gorgeous lipstick and I really Loved it, just like all my MAC lipsticks. It's the perfect winter color. You can create many edgy and sultry looks with this lipstick so it's a most have.

Hey everyone! It's been awhile since my last post but I finally have free time:) I wanted to start with my July Favorites, simply because there's so many new products that I've tried and I'm really enjoying at the moment.
Here are The products I wanted to share.
From My Ipsy bag this month is the BareMinerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in the shade "Divine Wine" This Eyeshadow is super pigmented and Very easy to blend. The color is very wearable because is not too dark or too light, It would do a great smokey eye and nude eye. This color would look great with a bright red lip stick for a classic look or even with a nude Lipstick for natural casual look. Love the formula of this product, it's very soft and does not stain your lids. Over all I give this product 5 starts.
This is an all time favorite. The Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup Foundation in the shade "Natural Beige or 60" I've been Using this for about two years as my main foundation and it's an all year favorite. This is a great summer Foundation because it really does the Job, keeps your face very matte with no shine. In the summer we can all get oily skin and shiny face but this Foundation keeps your skin looking very fresh. It's a little drying so if you have dry skin like I do, I recommend that you use a good hydrating primer or moisturizer. I personally like this foundation very much because it actually matches my skin color perfectly. Most foundations are usually too light or simply not the right undertone.
One of My favorite Blush ever and My Summer Most have is the NYX Blush in "Copper" This Color is just simply gorgeous! it really gives you that perfect summer glow. I have been wearing this color all summer long. It's very Pigmented and it goes well with every skin color. If you're light skin, this will give you a pop of color that looks very natural. If you're darker skin, this would look like the most beautiful natural summer glow. I love that it's also very wearable and super affordable.
Next is The Lorac SummerGLOW Palette. This palette has the perfect Summer Essential colors. I've been wearing it a lot the whole month of july. I really love every single shade, especially the gold copper ones. In the summer I'm not a fan of wearing too much makeup because it's too hot and I don't like the way my face feels, so I wear light color eyeshadows. which is one of the reasons why I've been wearing this palette a lot. I recommend using a good primer before applying this eyeshadow, it's not the most pigmented palette.
Last but Definitely not least it's The anastasia beverly hills contour kit This product, as I'm pretty sure you all know, was out of stock everywhere for the longest! and it sells out pretty quick. Before I got it, I was wondering, what was the hype of this product all about? Now that I was finally able to get it, I know why it's so popular. This is the perfect Contouring palette no matter what kind of skin color you have. it's really a most have. if you're looking for something to add color to your face, This will do the job. I Am super in love this product and absolutely love that almost all shades are matte. So easy to blend and Great for any look.
Over all, these Products are all wonderful and diverse, you can get really creative. I think they're all an All Year most have.
Hope you guys enjoyed this Post and keep visiting for more monthly Favorites, reviews and much more:)
