M.A.C Vamplify Collection

Hi My Loves!!

Today M∙A∙C launches their M∙A∙C Vamplify Collection. This lip gloss is available online now and will be available in-store on Sept 3rd through Oct 15th. They have 17 shades of the lipgloss and 12 new shades of the Pro Longwear lip pencil which happens to be my favorite formula from their liners.

Here's what they have to say about the collection:

Be seduced by our most dramatic lipgloss yet, M·A·C Vamplify. Infused with a new colour-boosting technology, the formula is loaded with high-powered pigments in 17 shades, including three online-exclusives. One swipe loads lips with attitude, as a combination of lush natural oils polish with moisturizing colour. The glossy colour wears comfortably for hours, for a look that comes on strong and doesn’t let go. Also, dare you to resist the near-everlasting power of Pro Longwear Lip Pencil, now in 12 new shades.

Vamplify Lip Gloss $20.00  
A lipgloss infused with colour-boosting technology that’s loaded with pigments.

While I am excited about the Vamplify lip glosses, I have a feeling they might get all over my Invisalign aligners so I'm more excited about the lip pencils. I currently own quite a few of the Pro Longwear lip pencils and these colors all look gorgeous. Lip pencils with a clear lip balm over has been my go to look so I feel like these new shades will be a perfect addition to my collection :) They are creamy, stay on for a super long time and don't dry my lips out. I highly recommend picking up a shade or two if you haven't tried them out.

Thanks for reading.
Let me know in the comments which shades you will be picking up or lusting over!

#MakeupMonday: My Current Favorite Palettes

Hi My Loves!!

I was cleaning up my disaster of a makeup table this afternoon and was admiring my latest favorite palettes and figured why not show them to you. I have been loving these palettes for the past week or two. I love these so much and I think you guys should definitely check these palettes out!

This palette is an absolute must have! You NEED this palette in your life. You really do. It's so beautiful. It has the perfect mix of mattes and shimmery shades. There's a little pop of color as well as some awesome neutral shades. I love that they are warm tones and the quality of the pigmentation is gorgeous. And then there is #Selfie. My new obsession as my brow bone, inner tear duct and highight for my cheekbones. I would buy this palette just for that color. Enough said.

Maybe there is a theme here. I just like things named #Selfie lol. So this palette I only use for one thing. And that is for the bronzer color. Because this is supposed to give you that filtered look, this bronzer applies so nice and even that it just blends amazingly. It looks gorgeous on, is the perfect shade and gives you pretty glow without being shimmery. It's my favorite way to contour. I've hit pan so you know I love it haha!

This is such a great blush palette for only $10! It's got great pigmentation and a beautiful variety of shades. I love the peachy pinky tones in this palette and the shimmery ones are really pretty to layer over the blushes. If you are looking for a palette and is affordable but doesn't lack quality... get this.

This another really great palette. It has some great warm shades and some fun pops of color as well. Spoiled, Morocco, Fudge & Pink Champagne are my favorites. It's just an all around really fabulous palette. The quality is great and I think the price point is really good compared to other high end palettes. I love the size of this for traveling as well. It's super convenient and light weight.

When I first saw this palette online I wanted it. Then I saw the price... then my smile turned to a frown lol. But then I thought, heck this is my job and justified buying it hahaha! It's WAY too expensive. However I have been loving it. The highlight shades are very pretty. They swatch chunky on the hand but apply very nice on the face. You can also use these as eyeshadows. I used radiance as a blush and it was gorgeous with a little bit of a coral blush over, as this one is very light and shimmery. Basically if you want to glow you would like this palette. However they are a little proud of this with the price. I would say it's worth maybe $35. $54.... it's a little much. But I do love it.

Hope this has helped you decide incase you were looking at these palettes. 

Thanks for reading ;)

#FlashbackFriday: Sibling Love & Bangs Galore

 Hi My Loves!!

It's time for a #FlashbackFriday. I was looking through my pictures from when I was in England and took pictures of pictures my Nanny had in her photo albums and figured seeing as it was Friday I'd share :) So here you go. Get ready for lots of bangs and cheesy sibling pictures.

Me when I was 12. That's my natural hair color!

A note I wrote to my Nanny when I was little.

For Christmas one year my neighbor made me this cloak. I felt like a queen or something :) Check out those terribly short bangs hahaha!

I wish I knew what we were laughing about.

How cute are we? Matching bangs and all :)

I love our little bead necklaces.

My Mommy standing in front of Lake Tahoe.She used to love that coat. It's funny the things you remember about people.

Little Bradley!! He's so cute!

This was 7th grade I think. Tickle me Elmo was super cool back then. I was so excited that I finally got one. My teddy vest was pretty stylish haha :)

All ready for Christmas in our red pj's!

Awww this is so cute!!!

  Gotta love the KMart ad in the back hahaha!
Fast forward a few years to when I got Moo!! How cute was she? She was super tiny. I think she was about 10 weeks old here. Her coloring was darker back then. As she got older her hair got lighter. She was the cutest puppy I'd ever seen. Still is ;)

Hope you enjoyed this guys!!

Have a great weekend ;)
