MAC Wonder Woman Collection


Hi everybody,

here is my MAC Wonder Woman Haul!

I have to say I love the design, especially the compacts are so pretty, I like them better than any packaging MAC has ever come up with, even Heatherette or Hello Kitty!


Here is what I bought:
Golden Lariat Mineralize Skinfinish

I wanted Pink Power but they didn't have that one yet, I might go back and get it though, once they get the shipping!



Here is how it looks in the pan:



I also bought:
Mighty Aphrodite Duo Blush


Here is how it looks in the pan:



Next:
Valiant Eyeshadow Quad


Here is a closeup of the color Valiant:
(*edit: and here is a look using the palette )




I got two lipsticks:
Marquise d' (left) and Spitfire (right)


Here is how the packaging looks like:



And I also got the Eye Brush Set (top 109 brush, middle 213 brush, bottom 224 brush)



So this was my complete haul:



And here is Wonder Woman, picture taken from the brush set box:



Now I have to tell myself I can't go back to get more stuff...

;-)

Take care,
Blusherine

New Yooooork....


 No, I'm not going to New York, but I love this song! With all the model casting and fashion shows on tv and everyone going to New York, always accompanied by this song, don't you feel like you want to go there yourself?

And the way Alicia Keys screams "New York" from the bottom of her heart, I almost want to go buy a plane ticket...

But hear for yourself!

What's in my makeup bag 2011


By now you must know that I am a total Hello Kitty freak!!

I love Hello Kitty! I think I bought the whole MAC Hello Kitty Collection when it came out, well, not really, but almost!

Anyway, Jule tagged me to show what's in my makeup bag, and I have to say, not very much. I don't carry around much with me, just a few things to touch up. I expect my makeup to last all day, I leave the house at 7.30 in the morning and come back at around 5 p.m. and my makeup better stays put for that time. Even if I'm going somewhere after work I don't reapply, except for my lipstick sometimes.



From left to right:
Mini Douglas Glass Nail File (like it because it's so small)
MAC Cremesheen Glass in Partial to Pink (use it as lip balm)
Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (love it, have the full size as well)
MAC Fast Response Eye Cream (to touch up eye area, comes in a handy and hygienic tube)
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream (use it as lip balm)

I also carry whatever lipstick I am wearing that day, plus:
my Hello Kitty mirror from H&M
MAC Fix+ (to freshen up my face)


All that I throw randomly into my handbag!

I am tagging whoever wants to participate, feel free to join the fun and share what's in your makup bag!




Have a great day!

Benefit Flirt Alert and MAC Cherry Electric


Cherries are today's theme in my Candy Color Lipstick Series...

This is Benefit's Flirt Alert Lipstick from their full-finish liptick range, topped with MAC's Superglass Cherry Electric (LE).

Much as I like Benefit's full-finish lipsticks, I cannot say the same thing about MAC's Superglasses. I dont really like their consistency, the glitter is way too big and chunky and gets everywhere, I found glitter bits on my neck and around my nose in the past, so no, I don't really like Superglasses. And what is even worse, once they have migrated to the rest of your (upper) body (hopefully), they are really difficult to get off. Isn't that weird?

Superglasses came out last year with a collection of the same name.

So why am I even featuring a Superglass if I dislike it so much? Simply because the color of Cherry Electric is gorgeous and goes well with the red of Flirt Alert.

So that was my rant about MAC's Superglasses...

And by the way: Benefit's full-finish lipsticks are GREAT and come in great shades, if I didn't stress that enough!


Have a great day!

MAC Lavender Whip Lipstick


Lilac M&Ms would be today's theme in my Candy Color Lipsticks Series...

This is MAC's Lavender Whip, a limited edition color with a Cremesheen finish, it came out with the Cremeteam Collection.

Colorwise it's very similar to MAC's Fashion Mews from the Hello Kitty Collection and Blooming Lovely from the Give me Liberty of London Collection, if you have those.

I already swatched Blooming Lovely here.

I love lavender colored lipsticks, I rarely ever see anyone wearing them but I think they are easier to pull off than you would think!

Have a great day!

MAC Costa Chic and Euro Beat



My Candy Color Lipstick Series today features the flavor peach...

This is MAC's Costa Chic Lipstick (Frost), paired with Euro Beat Dazzleglass (LE, Euristocrats II Collection).

Costa Chic is a typical MAC Frost, which to me means, it almost HAS to be topped with a gloss to make it less crumbly-looking. In this case I topped it with a sheer coral Dazzleglass.

Now if I look at the coral lip combination that I posted a few days ago, Vegas Volt plus Baby Sparks, there's not THAT much difference colorwise, is there?


Vegas Volt Lipstick topped with Baby Sparks Dazzleglass:



as opposed to Costa Chic Lipstick and Euro Beat Dazzleglass:




If I had to recommend one of the two lipsticks (both are permanent), it would be Vegas Volt!


*edit:
I did a swatch comparison of my coral MAC lipsticks, if you're interested, you can find it here.


Have a great day!

MAC Full Fuchsia and Nice Kitty


My Candy Color Lipstick Series today features the flavor Raspberry, so to say...

This is Lipstick Full Fuchsia (Amplified) topped with Nice Kitty Lipglass (LE).

Full Fuchsia is a MAC Pro Color, I got mine when it was released with the Tartan Tale Collection last Christmas!
I put lip balm on underneath to make it sheerer, the color is pretty opaque. I sheered it out even further with Nice Kitty Lipglass, which came out with the Hello Kitty Collection in 2009 and is a bright sheer neon pink.

Have a great week everyone!

MAC All Styled Up Lipstick


Now let's get on with the candy color lipsticks! :-)

This is All Styled Up by MAC, a bubblegummy pink that only looks good on me when I am pale.

I got this last summer when it came out with the "In the Groove Collection" and I can only wear it now that I am NC25ish, when I wore it in the summer, I looked like Barbie on crack, as Lilly would say *g*

So I would suggest you consider these kinds of pale pinks if you are NC25 and below, otherwise you could end up looking like Magda from the movie "There's Something about Mary", unless you're going for that :o)

I will insert a picture from the movie for better comprehension :o)



Anyway, All Styled Up is a Cremesheen, here it is in my last year's haul picture, it's the lightest of the three.



I also swatchted the four colors of that collection, so here is a swatch of
All Styled Up:


Find the blogpost about the haul here, if you're interested.


Maybe I'll do a bubblegum lipstick series, it's fun to wear these bright colors!


xoxo

MAC Vegas Volt and Baby Sparks


Hi everybody,

it's coral overload today! :o)

The past few days have been quite sunny and warm here in Vienna, and when the temperatures are rising, I always feel like wearing bolder colors.

This might be a bit bright for February, but I don't care, nice weather demands for fun makeup ;-)

Aaaanyway,
this is MAC Lipstick Vegas Volt (Amplified), topped with Baby Sparks Dazzleglass.
Both are permanent items in the MAC range, Vegas Volt is an opaque bright coral, Baby Sparks is a soft pale pink.

The color combinations does settle in the lines of my lips, as you can see. That isn't great, but what can you do... I was in such a hurry this morning that I don't even know if it's Vegas Volt that's creasing or Baby Sparks, or the combination of both... I will have to examine further...

*edit:
I did a swatch comparison of my coral MAC lipsticks, if you're interested, you can find it here.


Have a great day!

Stylish Blogger Award: 7 Things about Me


Hi everyone,

Amanda from Blushmebeauty gave me the Stylish Blogger Award, thank you very much Amanda! :-)

I have to share 7 things about myself, here we go:
  1. I used to be afraid that a burglar would come to my house and take my tv and my laptop. Now I'm afraid that the burglar is a woman and would take all my makeup... ;-)
  2. I started getting REALLY into makeup when I discovered Temptalia's blog a couple of years ago.
  3. The first youtube-video I ever watched was one by Risa.
  4. I always carry my portable harddrive with me in my handbag, with all my pictures on it, you never know when you need your pictures! :o)
  5. When I discovered the magic of foundation at age 13 I went to school looking like Pocahontas, with a foundation that I found in my mom's makeup bag that was 3 shades too dark for me... :o)
  6. No one knows that I am blogging, only my boyfriend knows, but not my family and friends.
  7. I just found out that there is a CCO near Vienna, CCO, here I come!!!

Now I have to award it to 15 recently discovered bloggers, 15 is a little much, I will name 3:

Milky Pink Lipstick Comparison


Hi everyone!

Since I seem to fall for the same kind of pinks over and over again and because some of you wanted a swatch comparison I decided to open my pink lipstick drawer yesterday and swatch my milky pink lipsticks:



My three favorite are definitely the first three shades, MAC Angel, MAC Lazy Day and Benefit Mod Squad.

I don't really like the consistency of Yves Saint Laurent's Rouge Volupté's no. 1, if any of you wants it, I am willing to give it away for half the retail price, it has 98% product left. Send me an e-mail if you're interested: blusherine@gmail.com

Rimmel's Airy Fairy is much hyped but on my lips it doesn't really show up that much! It is slightly darker, warmer and more golden than the other shades.

Anyhow, hope this helps!

Have a great day!
