OCC Lip Tar Haul

Hi dolls!

This quick haul is going to be about OCC Lip Tars. I picked some up while at IMATS a few weeks ago, and dammit these deserve every award out there!! If you don’t know about OCC, their products are 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free. And, if that’s not enough, their products are so pigmented that a little seriously goes a long way. Trust me.  They have a multitude of colors, but I only picked up 3 and a nail polish, which is also amazeballs! They launched a new concealer collection recently that is also pretty amazing! If you’re an aspiring  makeup artist, I highly recommend you own all of them, including the lip tars. You will not go wrong with these!

Here are the LT’s I picked up: Tone, Divine and Hush.

They are beautiful on and SO vibrant! They don’t dry out your lips (although, I always moisturize before applying anything on my lips), and the color lasts a while. The dots of color you see on my hand is way too much product if you would believe it. I’m serious guys, a small dot will cover your entire mouth!

Check them out at www.occmakeup.com or if you live in the LA area, go to Nigel’s Beauty Emporium in North Hollywood to see them in person. You’ll fall in love, I promise!

Ahoy!!! MAC’s “Hey, Sailor”! Is Here

Good evening my loves!

I hope that this blog post finds you all well and happy!  If you’re a fan of my beauty page on FB, then you’ve noticed that I’ve been really excited about this limited edition collection from MAC! I learned about it early in the month and was lucky enough to put some items on hold before they went on sale to the public! I couldn’t talk to you abou them because they weren’t out yet, but I have them now and I am so excited to show you these amazing colors! Now, keep in mind that this collection is pretty big AND I did NOT buy/need all of the items, but I’ll be the first to tell you that all of the colors and bronzers are seriously deadly and the best part is that they all come in special packaging!!!

The collection will hit stores this Thursday, but www.maccosmetics.com is currently selling the items now AND you can also find them at the MAC Pro stores right now. They tend to carry limited edition items a week before the GP can get their hands on them.  Now for the fun stuff…

These two shadows were my faves from the collection.  Feeling Fresh – Bright Green (frost) and Jaunty – Champagne (frost). Keep in mind that these colors look completely different on. Jaunty is definitely a frosted champagne color and Feeling Fresh reminds me of a frosted Christmas green LOL! Please don’t let that scare you! It’s a beautiful color!

Now, this lipglass I am in love with! It’s called Orange Tempera and it’s a pale peach color. It looks lovely on and when mixed with Myth, Freckle Tone or Vegas Volt…it’s just gorgeous! There are 5 lipglasses in this collection and the only ones that I really liked are this one and Send Me Sailing. It’s a bright yellow red and it goes perfectly with Red Racer (lipstick also in this collection).

Salute! This lipstick is a neutral peach (amplified) lipstick. This one may be a little tricky because it may not go well with all skin types. It can either make you look too pale or make you look like you ate a powdered doughnut…lol! I love it though and it looks great on.  You can always mix things up though! Be playful, explore and don’t be afraid to try new things (I say this all the time). Step out of your comfort zone!  You can mix this with a pink colored lipstick and make it your own. I always play with my lipsticks and lipgloss’ and come up with the coolest colors! Oh, and if you didn’t catch the name…it’s called Salute! 🙂

And finally, the best pale nude beige lip pencil everrrrr! This one is called Saunter and it’s a Pro Longwear Lip Pencil, which means that it’s supposed to last you a while.  Most lip pencils last a while anyway if you apply it on your lips as a lipstick so to speak.  I always line my lips first, then fill them in and put lipstick ontop.  You can pretty much wear this with any nude colored lipstick. Doesn’t matter how pink or how pale.

That’s it for this post guys, but I hope that you all have enjoyed it and find this collection just as exciting as I did.  These are MY faves, but believe me, there is waaaaaaaaaay more!  They have bronzers, blushes, lip balms and body oils as well. I mean you will want to walk away with everythinggggggggggg! If you go out and buy some items or check them out, let me know what you bought or share what you think about the collection! Share your pics on my page too! I’d love to see what YOUR faves are!

Stay happy, stay motivated and stay fabulous!

M.A.C Haul – Pure Awesomeness!

Hi pretty babies!!!

This is going to be a quick HAUL on a few things I just bought from MAC!  I decided to finally try a CREAM BLUSH! Yes, I know I’m probably super late on this, but I’ve been scared! LOL! I guess I’ve been scared because I wasn’t always good at applying it onto my cheeks.

This cream blush is called “Something Special” and let me just tell you guys that it’s gorgeous! It’s a pinkish/peach color and it goes on beautifuly! It doesn’t cake up either.  Tip #1: Use a natural hair “domed” shaped brush to apply it. You can use an angled brush or dual fiber bruh as well, but I feel like the domed shaped brush gives you a better application. Tip #2: You can use cream blushes as a base for your powder blush! It’s a great way to help your blush last all day, too!

This next blush is called “Peaches” and it’s just that…Peach! It looks similar to the cream blush, but it really isn’t. They both go on very differently.

I thought about going with “Modern Mandarin” from their TRES CHEEK Collection, but it was just a bit too orange for me.  So I went with “Peaches”.  I also bought “Immortal Flower” from that collection, but I’ll talk about that one in a different post ;-)! Peaches, is more of a matte blush and it blends SO well with “Something Special”!! Too well infact! I mean, it’s just sinfully beautiful. Definitely a must have for this Spring/Summer!

And lastly, my mineralized skinfinish! This is the one I just DIE for…it’s called “Soft & Gentle”.  I honestly cannot say enough about this one. It’s seriously to die for! It’s by far the best highlighter I’ve had!! You can wear it alone or apply it to the areas you want to accentuate (cheek bones, brow bone, bridge of your nose, temples, chin, etc.).  It’s heavily pigmented so a little WILL go a long way and it should last you a long time, but if you’re like me and use it everyday…that may not be the case LOL!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this lil haul and I hope that you go out and check these bad boys out (if you don’t already have them)!

Stay beautiful and remember, when in doubt…wear lipstick!

xoxo – LL
