MAC x Mariah Carey Holiday Collection

11:34 AM


All I want for Christmas is.. THIS!


MAC Cosmetics has unveiled the entire Mariah Carey collection and it is gorgeous! Yes, maybe a bit much for some people, but I am just living for the sparkle. It screams holidays with Mariah, that is for sure. The collection will be available online December 8th and in stores on December 15th. So on to the fun part, the products!



There will be five lipsticks available ($20 each) and will include Bit of Bubbly (soft pinky nude, cremesheen), Dahhlinggg! (pinky peach, cremesheen), MCizzle (cool peach, cremesheen), All I Want (champagne shimmer, frost), and I Get So OOC (shimmering brown, frost).


Four lipglasses (18.50 each), as well as two lip pencils ($22 each), will also be available. The lipglasses include colors such as Rainbow Interlude, Little Miss Monroe, and Butterfly Bling. For the lip pencils, New Ombre is a cool peach and So Dramatique is a deep brown.


Probably one of my favorites in this collection is the extra dimension skinfinish ($45.50). My 
Mimi is a warm gold shimmer and something that I can definitely see in my makeup bag this holiday season.

Something that I haven't seen in a lot of MAC collaborations is this product, the loose powder ($39.50). I am actually really excited to see some swatches with this, perfectly named Touch My Body and described as a radiant gold shimmer.
      

There will be two eyeshadow palettes ($41 each) in this collection, It's Everything and I'm That Chick You Like. I'm honestly not sure which of these I want more, both are full of flattering shades.


I just have to say that MAC x Mariah really outdid themselves with the packaging on this collection. As a girl who loves her packaging, I'm already obsessed with every product. I mean, liquid eyeliner is liquid eyeliner (this is $22, btw).. but this one, This Is My Night (rich black-brown), just feels like something I need to add to my collection.. I swear I don't have a shopping problem.
             
Two powder blushes ($24 each) will also be included in this collection. Sweet Sweet Fantasy is described as a deep coral, while You've Got Me Feeling is a light candy pink. I'm not too big on blush, but I would still like to try these out and see how they look in person.
The collection also features two sets of lashes ($18 each), 05 (more natural-looking fringe) and 36 (super-glam). Obviously my favorite lashes are these gorgeous lashes above, the 36 set.

     

Last, but not least, we have the brushes that will be released with this collection. I usually don't buy any of the brushes that come out with the collaborations, but the sparkle is calling my name. The 239 Eye Shader will be sold for $28.50, while the 183 Buffer is $59.50.. which means I'll probably stick with the shader if I end up picking up one of the two.

So what are your thoughts? Love it? Leave it? What are you hoping to find in your stocking?

What's on my plate? GOOD THiNS Review

9:17 AM


I am always looking for new things to try, including snacks. I have been trying to cut out the junk food as much as possible in my life recently, so snacking has been hard for me. I try to find products that don’t have any artificial colors or flavors. When I looked at a box of GOOD THiNS, I knew I had found the right snack for me!



By checking out the GOOD THiNS box (this one is the POTATO one, which is the original), you can easily find out more about the product. In “the goods” section, it notes that these have no artificial colors, artificial flavors, cholesterol, partially hydrogenated oils, or high fructose corn syrup. This is VERY GOOD for me and already has me wanting to eat them.



Biting into my first GOOD THiNS, I am sold. These little morsels are delicious on their own, but I can already imagine the dips that I can set out with these if I am ever having a party. They’re like chips, only better. I love that I can eat these without having to feel guilty about what I am putting in my body. They are perfect for a little snack on the go or even an appetizer at a dinner party. I seriously cannot stop eating them.

Current Beauty Wishes

5:07 PM



It's time for another wish list - beauty edition!

So these are products that I do not currently have, but would like to eventually add to my collection. Basically, they are the products that I am currently trying to justify going on another shopping spree for. Let me know if you love any of these products, are interested in any of them, or have any suggestions of your own!

Glossier. milky jelly cleanser

First is a product that I found on Instagram. I follow Phoebe Tonkin (who I think is just gorgeous btw), so I am always checking out what products she is interested in at the moment. She posted a picture with this face wash that I automatically assumed I needed. I googled it to find out more and the reviews are pretty good. Definitely sounds like a product worth trying out.

Kylie Lip Kit in Kourt


I have purchased literally EVERY shade that Kylie has released and this one will be no different. After seeing the swatches of this baby, I HAVE TO HAVE IT! It is so pretty and is a color that I love to wear. Girl needs to hurry up and release it because I already love it. It already has a place in my heart. End of story.

Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X


Okay, I'm on and off with this thing. I love the idea of being a hairless cat, but I just haven't seen too many real reviews of the Tria laser. If anyone has found a good review, please let me know! If I can have smooth legs without shaving or waxing, I'm in. If I can do that without having to leave my house, I'm in heaven. I just want to know that I'm not spending over $400 for a product that isn't going to get rid of my winter legs.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection


I use my Chocolate Bon Bons palette religiously. I have been a Too Faced fan for as long as I can remember wearing makeup, so of course I need to get my hands on this palette. If you're like me, you missed out on the restock of this palette today. Waiting until the next release in April will be painful as we watch all the other swatching their palettes, but our time will come! But if you can't wait, do me a favor and check out the Peanut Butter and Jelly palette. I'm still debating on whether I want that one as well (I totally WANT, but do I need?) ;)

Lipstick On by MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA


I love the REPLICA fragrance collection. Beach Walk is my jam. After reading the description of Lipstick On, I was sold. After reading the reviews online, I had to smell it. I ran down to Sephora and it was nowhere to be found. I'm not sure if the store just didn't carry it or if it was THAT good. Either way, this is something that is at the top of my wish list (even if it is at the bottom of this one).

And that's it for this round of makeup dreams! What's on your list?
