MAC Bloggers' Obsessions

So I just wanted to show you guys what I got from the new Bloggers' Obsessions collection.  I only picked up two items, Hocus Pocus eyeshadow and All Of My Purple Life lipglass.  I wanted to get Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow, but as I'm sure all of you know it sold out within minutes of launching online.  I read on Twitter that they are suppose to restock the sold out items, so maybe I can get my hands on it after all.

All Of My Purple Life & Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus & All Of My Purple Life

Hocus Pocus is unlike any gray eyeshadow that I own, though I forgot to take pictures of the swatches.  It is a satin and has gold sparkles, but the gold does not overpower the shadow.  The blogger that created this shade wanted it to be flattering on all skintones, which I think it should be.  I haven't used it yet but I will definitely post the look that I come up with.

All Of My Purple Life is very nice and very opaque.  It is purple with blue shimmer.  I did a few lip swatches of my MAC lipglasses that are dark purple and I'm happy to say that I own nothing like AOMPL.

So This Season from Trend F/W '09

Wrong Spell from Venomous Villians

All Of My Purple Life

All Of My Purple Life, Wrong Spell and So This Season

I can't wait to use both of this products, as you can see AOMPL is a unique purple color.  I'm glad I was able to get both products.  Did you get anything from the Bloggers' Obsessions Collection?  I would love to hear what you bought.

MAC Surf Baby Haul

 So I decided to post my Surf Baby haul, I figured better late than never.

Surf The Ocean pigment stack, My Paradise, Gilded White & Sun Blonde

I must say that I am in LOVE with Sun Blonde, it is such a versatile color and like nothing that I own.  It looks good paired with greens, pink toned colors, and browns. 

My paradise, clearly the star of the collection, at least in my opinion.  I must say that I love that the gold overspray doesn't disappear so fast this time around.  The blush leans kind of coral-orange on my skin tone.  I think it is a lot better than last year's Marine Life.

Gilded White is the one product that I am unhappy with.  It doesn't stay on the water line at all and it makes my eyes look sick with placed on the lower lash line.  I haven't tried it on the inner corners of my eyes yet, so perhaps it won't be a complete waste.

Surf the Ocean pigment stack was the item I was most skeptical about. I love the idea of pigments, but I never ever use them.  The bluish-green color reminded me of Deep Blue Green pigment which I hardly ever touch, but the bronze color looked amazing.  So when I saw it back in stock online I purchased it against my better judgment.  I am happy to say that I really like this stack, especially the bronze color.  I had little to no fall out and I love how metallic-y the colors look.  

So that's all for now.  Leave a comment and let me know what you purchased from the MAC Surf Baby Collection.

MAC Sun Blonde EOTD

I did this look this past Saturday for work.  I was feeling out of my comfort zone and decided to use a little bit of color.  I picked up Sun Blonde from MAC's  Surf Baby, perhaps I will do a haul post, even though I'm sure there are plenty of them out there.

Hey all, I'm actually surprised that I still have any subscribers at all.  I'm the type of person who HATES people that have a blog and rarely update it.  Sadly, I have become what I hate, but with good reason.

I guess as most bloggers know, blogging is hard work because we all have a life outside of our blog.  I don't even remember the last time I posted so I can't even say how many months it has been.  My life has changed in so many ways in the past five months.  Between finally finishing school, getting my two little ones to school everyday and working part time I really had no time to blog like I initially did. 

  To top it all off, we found out that we were expecting in January, and the morning sickness kicked my butt big time this time around.   The smell of lipstick or gloss was completely repulsive and for some reason my lips started to chap, so I started to use Carmex.  Needless to say I will NEVER EVER touch that stuff again.  It made me sick about halfway through the tube and the actual sight of it in the store made me want to puke.  I definitely was going to take any pics, even if I could because I looked a hot mess.  I'm elated that that has all passed though.  I'm not sure how often I will/can post, but I will definitely try, because I truly love my blog, it gives my an escape from the real world I guess you could say.  

 I have a few face/eyes of the day that I took pics of, but never got around to posting, so I will start with that and see where it goes.  Life is definitely going to get a lot busier for me in the months to come, but I will try to stay on top of blogging.   Hope everyone is well :)
