A Quick Look at the New Too Faced Natural Matte Neutral Eye Shadow Collection in Action [VIDEO]

Published in: Eyes, Palettes, Too Faced, Video

Yes, another matte neutral palette, this one by Too Faced, and it’s new and available now for summer 2015.

This is my first time wearing the new Natural Matte Neutral Eye Shadow Collection, so I’m still testing it for wear (swatches and more detailed review coming soon), but here’s a quick overview and a look at it in action.

The gist of it is this: Too Faced took their $36 Natural Eyes palette, turned all the shades matte and created this.

As always, thank you for watching.

P.S. I am so hungry right now I could eat my phone! I need to eat a massive amount of vegetables, or the world will suffer my wrath!!

P.P.S. Happy hump day evening, by the way. :)

MAC Philip Treacy Collection First Impressions, Mini Reviews [VIDEO]

Published in: Collections, MAC Makeup, Makeup, Video

Hats, baby! Hats, hats, all types of hats.

What’s that fancy word for a maker of hats…? I think it might be milliner? Milner?

I dunno.

London-based Philip Treacy is a big deal maker of hats (he outfitted several people who attended the royal wedding of William and Kate), and the MAC Philip Treacy collection was inspired by three of his coiffure-covering creations.

Ninth grade me would have flipped over this collection. That’s when I was deep in the midst of my hat phase. I wore a hat every day to school for most of that year.

Ulta Haul! Products by Shea Moisture, Rimmel, Maybelline, Covergirl, Anastasia and Hot Tools [VIDEO]

GURL, you don’t even know. My usual plan of attack when I go to Ulta (or Sephora, or Target, or CVS, or any other place where I can physically pick up makeup and drop it into a basket or cart) goes like this: if I can’t carry it to the register with my own two hands, it’s not leaving the store with me.

This usually prevents the urge to keep throwing stuff (and by “stuff,” I mean everything and the kitchen sink) into my basket.

Usually.

It didn’t work the last time I went to Ulta.

(Long story…)

Here are the products I picked up and which ones I’m loving (and not loving) from that visit.

P.S. Have you been to Ulta lately? What should I grab on my next trip?

MAC Mia Moretti Collection: First Impressions [VIDEO]

Published in: Collections, MAC Makeup, Video

Here’s the dealio: MAC and a DJ named Mia Moretti got together to spin some sweet tunes!

Yeah, I don’t know if that makes any sense. :) But they did get together to create the new MAC Mia Moretti collection.

I don’t know a lot about DJ-ing, but I do know a little about this launch. Lots of lovely creams, some warm summery colors and a slightly out-of-the-box lip palette. Three words: mint green lipstick.

If it was a little warmer, I would be next to the pool right now in Ray-Ban Aviators, a swimsuit, my beach towel, some magazines and this collection, because it makes me feel summery, casual and fun, like a poolside babe. :)

I’m still getting to know the pieces, but here are some initial first impressions/thoughts.

But first, lemme take a selfie!

And put on some bronzer… I can do both with these new products from Too Faced.

One is a miniature version of their ginormous Little Black Book of Bronzers, and the other is a palette with three face powders designed to create different lighting effects (think the Hourglass Ambients).

Power to the palettes! — especially ones that help you look cute in selfies. :)

As always, thank you for watching.
