MAC Spring Colour Forecast Collection!!!

I did quite a few Mac purchases within the last week. I bought four items from the Spring Colour Forecast Collection. I'm so happy that Spring is right around the corner because I'm sick of the snow and I can't wait to wear the new makeup colors. I bought from the Spring Colour 2 Coral collection and Spring Colour 3 Plum collection.

I bought the Ripe Peach Blush Ombre. It's gorgeous and already sold out on the Mac website. The blush has two tones, peach and coral that can be worn together to create a beautiful look or the lighter peach color can be worn as a highlight and the darker coral color can be worn as a contouring color. The price is $25 a few dollars more than the normal Mac blushes but you get a larger size than the normal blush size and it's well worth it! I also bought the Kumquat Lip glass ($14) it's a frosted tangerine color. It's very pretty. I see myself wearing this with a chestnut lip liner or even a pretty berry lip liner like Currant.

I also bought the Vintage Grape Blush Ombre ($25). So beautiful!! It's a mid-tone violet pink. The colors look great as a highlighter and contour color. Both blushes are limited edition and can achieve a medium-buildable coverage. Lastly, I bought the Lavender Wind Lip glass ($14). It's described as a lavender with pearl frost color. It's already sold out on the Mac website too! It's a soft lavender color. It looks darker on the website. I could barely see it on myself because of the sheer color so I'm going to layer it over some of my berry lipsticks like "Sophisto" and "Desire." I think the lip glass would look good with a berry lip liner.

All in all I am pleased with this collection. All the products are available to purchase from a Mac store or counter and from their website.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.

Black Opal: True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation Review

As of late, I've have been loving this foundation. I have gotten a tan, and this prompted me to buy a new foundation matching my new shade. The color that I bought is Truly Topaz and probably in the Fall/Winter I will be back to my Heavenly Honey shade. I've used Black Opal foundations before, and I figured I would give this new one a try. Read on for my thoughts.


"Keep them guessing with picture poreless skin. This lightweight, oil-free liquid foundation seamlessly blends to provide flawless coverage with a high definition finish. Exclusive poreless technology helps minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, controls excess oil and renews skin natural radiance. Oil, fragrance and paraben-free formula. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive."


-Inexpensive, it's $10.95 online and retails anywhere between $12-$13 in stores.
-Light to medium coverage, this is a pro for those who have relatively clear skin.
-The coverage is buildable.
