MAC X JEREMY SCOTT Makeup Collection Tutorial & Review

Today’s Makeup tutorial & review is all about the new Mac X Jeremy Scott Collection. The theme of the collection is deliciously 90’s analog! “Good Bad Taste” abounds with packaging and product names inspired by Cassettes, Video Tapes, Boom Boxes and CD’s. I bought the Lo-Fi Eyeshadow x 29 palette, which has 29 rainbow hued eyeshadows. I love the palette, and the ONLY color that gave me any trouble was the bright purple in the lower right corner, “Club New Wave Mix”. This type of matte blue-toned purple is hard to create, I can’t say I have a dupe that performs better. It’s sheer at first, but it does build up beautifully as you’ll see in the video. My swatches were done with my normal method of UDPP and a Smith 256 Brush. The only call out would be that the pans are indeed small, but I mean, it’s 29 MAC shadows for $75 so I don’t feel that it’s a bad deal! I love the palette for it’s creativity, color and texture selection. Did I mention that most of the shadows are Matte? I’m also really happy this isn’t another Warm Smoky Eye palette. The neutrals here lean on the cool side.This is a hella useful palette and I love it!  I would recommend this to a friend seeking bright shadows in a rainbow hues with a few neutrals thrown in.

And then finally we get to my new haircut. Click on the image to view it larger. I have fine, thin hair so I wanted something to give me a big of a volume boost. The bottom row are some quick cellphone selfies after it rained on be immediately after getting it cut & styled. The top row is the following day with a bit of hair powder from Evo, Dry Shampoo, and a quick pass with a curling iron. So much movement and volume now!

WetnWild Midnight Mermaid Review & Tutorial

When I sat down to do my Wet’n’wild Midnight Mermaid collection review I was really drawn to the Metallic Liquid Eyeshadows. I love the idea of just swiping on glitter without the mess of multiple products. It seems like the kind of thing you could even throw in your makeup bag to take you from day to night. I was determined to try these just about every way I thought people might use them, so I used them on my eyes, brows and my lips. I did smile and rub tests to see if the lipsticks would kiss off, and rub tests to see if the eye glitter would rub off. I’m pretty sure I tested the wetnwild mermaid collection every which way- and I want to make it clear that I know these are not intended for the lips, so I don’t hold it against them that they don’t wear well there- it was super pretty while it lasted though!  I hope this helps you decide what you’d like from this collection before you buy, or perhaps explains some issues you have, if any.

the Metallic Liquid Eyeshadows on the lips- so much fun!

I felt like a goth mermaid Brigitte Bardot!

BEST LUXURY LIPSTICK! Pat McGrath MatteTrance Lipstick Review


Pat Mcgrath Mattetrance lipstick the luxury makeup I’ve been searching for! I bought three lipsticks to review for you guys, one from each of the trios. The Trios were $95, while singles are $38, so buying these individually was $114, however these were the colors I felt the most drawn too. There are 4g with is larger than the average lipstick size of 3g. The texture of these lipsticks are lovely- silky and smooth and matte and velvety. The don’t “set” really dry, so to get a longer wear you’ll want to use a lip primer but that’s true of all traditional lipstick. I have lips with poorly defined lip borders, and I have a lip scar, so in order to have a crips perfect look I typically need to use lipliner. For this review I opted to just use the lipstick and a lip brush, and it worked out pretty well. McMenamy was a little bit fussy, but that type of color always is for me, and once I applied it carefully I was so impressed! I’ve worn one of these everyday since I filmed this review, and I’ve continued to be impressed by the color impact, the shades themselves, how they make my teeth look whiter, and how fancy I feel toting them around. The packaging is elegant and whimsical, and I feel like a boss when I reapply.
