MAC-king it for my anniversary!!

My hubby and I recently celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary! Although he doesn't always understand my new found obsession with makeup he was a sweetheart and took me to MAC! It was my first time there and thankfully we went nice and early cuz it does get pretty busy there especially on a weekend! I have to say the MUA there was extremely nice, patient, and helpful. Ive had bad experiences before with the MUA's in department stores.
I ended up purchasing the MAC Face and Body Foundation in C6 and MAC Cremesheen lipstick in Modesty.
The MAC Face and Body Foundation was recommended to me because of my oily/combination, acne-prone skin, apparently its one of the few foundations offered by MAC that are oil free and water based. Its a light buildable foundation that is supposed to be transfer proof however I find that it does leave my cell phone greasy :(

Mac Modesty Swatch 
Mac Modesty is my first MAC lipstick and I love it. It is a nice pink with a hint of gold sheen in it. Its hard to find pink lipsticks that go well with
my skin-tone without washing me out or looking too blue. I'm Indian and I find that I have very pigmented lips. Now when I say pigmented, I don't mean a darker shade of pink or red. I mean pigmented in the sense that I have a brown upper lip and my bottom lip looks like its been lined with brown lipliner :(
The cremesheen formulation does a great job of covering up the brown in my lips. When its in my budget I definitely want to try an amplified creme lippie :)

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99


I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99





Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:
As promised here are some swatches:



What is Your Favorite Red Lipstick?

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.


I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
