Favorite Mac Lipsticks around the world



I saw this online and I thought it was so interesting how some countries gravitate towards certain colors. These are the most popular Mac lipsticks colors by country. What do you think? I personally have never tried on or looked at Vive Glam V, but I know people love it. I'm more of a Snob kind of girl, maybe I have some Mexican in me.

Spring Makeup New Loves

Do you change up your makeup? I am constantly changing up my look as you know. Before I left for my trip I got some new products and I just can't seem to put them down! Obsessed is an understatement! And how about Mac's new packaging of their Skin Finishes? Yes its bulky, but much better!!! You don't have to worry about the "glass" falling out and getting lost. I can't tell you how many times that has happened to me!



I got the Pro longwear Compact for the hot humid days in Mexico. I have Pro Longwear Liquid and hate it! Hate it is an understatement. I was super hesitant to get the compact because I hate the liquid so much! I tested it out at the store and fell in love. I feel like Mac hit a home run with this product, but failed miserably with the name. Many people are like myself and hate Pro Longwear Liquid, and I hope that does give the Compact a bad wrap.

I also got the lipstick Sweet Experience from the Playland collection, its a pink coral color, and perfect for the warmer time of year when you have some color to your skin.

I did purchase the studio sculpt eyeshadow duo with the liner, is that what is it called? studio sculpt? I liked it, but used it once, so I guess I didn't love it! I just have too much eyeshadow.

I will tell you that I absolutely love the chromographic pencils. Thank god these are not LE. These are pro only, but you can order these online and you don't need a pro card to do so. A pop of color that lasts all day, who does't love that?!

I have not tried the casual color, which can be used on your cheek or lip, but I will report back when I do.

As a new blush I purchased the skin finish in Cheeky Bronze. For all you Warm Soul fans, RUN right now and get this. Thank goodness this is a permanent item as this is like Warm Soul on crack. Perfect for spring and summer.  I have been hooked on this blush since the minute I purchased it. I seriously have a new love!

These are a few of my current faves. Let me know if you would like swatches of any of these products!

Look for a review of Sigma's brushes next week.

Enjoy your long weekend!!

back to the blog

well now that my amazing Mexico trip is over :( I will share pics, pinky promise!! I want to get back to blogging. I didn't mean to take that much time off, and I seriously missed you all. So lets just get to it.

I am fricken obsessed with Coconut Oil!!! I leave the jar on my bathroom counter. Not only does it take off all my makeup so nicely, and help my eyelashes to grow, but since I now have a lovely tan I need the moisture that this yummy stuff leaves behind!

This is the one I have. 

You also have to try this in your hair. I use it as a mask...cover your hair really well with coconut oil, put it on top of your head with a clip, and put a shower cap on. Stand it for as long as you can, then rinse out and wash your hair as your normally would. 

I also of course use coconut oil for cooking, adds yummy flavor and is healthier than other oils. 

How do you use coconut oil?
