If you're looking for any items from the Punk Couture, Huggable Lipcolour or Magnetic Nude Collections, they are available online now at MAC and when I last checked a few moments ago, all items were in stock.  Go now! They also launched in MAC stores and counters too, so if you'd like to swatch, check them out in person.

December Ipsy Bag

Overall I'm impressed with this month's Ipsy bag.  I actually loveeeeedddddd the bag, but a lot of people on the website were complaining about how it wasn't festive.  Well I think it's festive and sleek and gorgeous.  It's shiny, black, with a diamond print and lined with red fabric.  I think this bag is great because if you carry a higher end bag, you wouldn't be embarssed pulling this one out for whatever reason.  Love it.  

I also love the products--the cologne and perfume sample were very large vials--you can def get some use out of this.  I find it odd that the sample had a men's cologne too, but maybe that's just because I don't have a man. LOLOLOL. I think I got my money's worth this month, and my favorite item would probably be the Bombshell multiple stick--I posted a swatch of it and the lipstick below.  Sooooo pretty ladies! 

December's Ipsy bag:
*Signature by English Laundry perfume and cologne sample
*Bombshell Multiple Stick in Flustered
*Nicka K nail polish in a red shade (no  name on the bottle anywhere--weird)
*POP eyeshadow trio
*NYX Round Lipstick in Baby Pink


Hi guys! MAC's bright purple matte Heroine lipstick is a cult favorite.  Every time MAC launches it in some collection or limited release it sells out like nothing.  No worries if you haven't got one in your collection! MAC announced that this popular shade will be added to the permanent line and will be available online late December and in stores early January.  Snag one!

My Sephora VIB Haul

So I purchased a few different items during Sephora's VIB sale. I'm just goo to post some pics below. I'm not going to go into details because I'm still 'reviewing' them. I will say that I'm loving the Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette and the NARS lip pencils.

I'm slightly disappointed at the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencil-- but maybe I'm not using it right. 

Tarte's Friends & Family Sale

Tarte extended their F&F sale and today is the last day! Use the code 'DECFF' at checkout. And shipping is always free if you spend $40 or more. Check it out and snag some blush ladies!

Colored Raine Haul

So on Black Friday Coloured Raine had a really good 30% off sale. I had been eyeing their lippies for a whole, and I had a little change in my Paypal account, so I decided to to give some a try. I picked up three colors, and I've decided to give my overall opinion of the lipsticks. 

I will start by saying that this is a really popular brand among make up artists and its a small business, so it isn't going to be as cheap as drug store lipstick and maybe not the quality of higher end lipstick. 

These lipsticks retail at $14, so a little cheaper than Mac and a little more than the drugstore brands. With that being said, my overall thoughts are this: 

  1. The color range is the bomb. These lipsticks come in bold colors and neutral colors. I honestly love every single shade offered by CR. 
  2. The quality is also impressive as it relates to color opaqueness  I can't say how long they last, because I haven't worn these for more than minutes at a time. They are non-drying and semi-hydrating in fact. 
  3. The price isn't horrible I don't find it's bad, especially since I got a good deal, I paid about $9.30 for each one. 
  4. I have to admit I'm slightly disappointed with the packaging. It's beautiful, it just feels soooooo light to me. But maybe because I'm used to MAC, which is heavy. One people might like this feature though. 
  5. Lastly, the smell wasn't bad but it wasn't pleasant. It was slightly reminiscent of hair store lipstick. But that's no biggie. 
Overall, I'd purchase these lipsticks again. The colors are bold and fun, the price is good, and I LOVE CR's social media page! The owner seems like such a delightful person! 

Check out the pics below. I got three lippies, Socialite, Plum Fairy and Stalker.
