Lipgloss of the Week, Month? (Another Lippie Post)

Mac Revealing lip glass and Cork lip liner
I got this idea from another beauty blogger, Mocha Mish Mash, (her link is below and under the beauty blogs of interest column) she gets a blog award for coming up with this idea. I love her makeup photos of the day and her beauty product reviews, especially the drugstore makeup reviews the most. I was reading one of her posts and she posted that she has a lot of lip glosses (like me) that she doesn't use. So, she gave herself a beauty challenge! She challenged herself to wear 1 of her lip glosses for a full week. So, I'm challenging myself to do the same. I'm not good with persistence at times, so I don't know if I'll be able to keep this up every week, maybe I'll try for lip gloss of the month :)

This week I'm wearing Mac's Revealing lip glass. I've paired it up with Cork lip liner. Revealing is described as "rich caramel" but to me it comes off as the perfect nude lip gloss. Cork lip liner is described as "muted golden brown." Below are the swatches.

Here is how they both look together!
Finished look
I love this lip glass. It's the perfect everyday gloss. I've been wearing it every day to work, because it's neutral in color it looks great with a dramatic, smokey eye look.

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.

Since I'm a BzzAgent, I was sent some exclusive products from the Burt's Bees line for my consideration. I was sent the Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser and the Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream.
