My upcoming first z-palette!

I'm soo excited... I just placed an order for my first z-palette! My first palette that can fit makeup pans of different sizes and from different brands!  After a couple days of contemplating between the z-palette and UNI palette, I went with the z-palette simply because it is larger and can fit more blushes.  The UNI palette can only fit 3 MAC blushes with extra space for 5 MAC eyeshadows.  The z-palette can fit up to 8 MAC blushes from what I heard, after hearing this I was sold as I have more than 3 blushes I would depot and place in a palette of choice.

What ignited my curiosity to invest in one of these palettes?  I received MAC Cantaloupe blush in pan form and needed a place to store it!  Also, I could depot my other blushes and few eyeshadows to place in this palette (but this wasn't major, I wouldn't have mind keeping it in their original containers).  

I'll update more on my palette once it arrives and with lovely pictures of what I stored inside! 

*stay tuned!

Favorite Spring and Summer Nail Polish!

coming soon....

What's your favorite nail polish to wear on sunny days???

MAC Brave New Bronze

PS. Just wanted to say that I found a way to LOVE this!!! I pair it with my L'Oreal Colour Juice Caramel lipgloss and it's nude perfection!!! :)  Gives me a nude with slight peach undertone nude which is wearable even without heavy eyeshadow! (picture coming soon, sorry for delay)

I know this lipstick is limited edition and you can't find it at any MAC Counters, but try your Cosmetic Company Store or try to swap for it on (this is where I got my hands on one!). 

MAC Pret-a-Papier: My Loves & Review

ok so my last 2 posts are about this collection, but now I will try to do a better review on some of the products I purchased.

Garb- This has replaced my NYC Sunny bronzer.  It has great lasting power, about 6-8 hours or more. Love to use this for contouring my cheeks.  It's natural and doesn't' make for any harsh lines.  Can be used alone, but I like to pair it with a blush. Also, I used this on my mom who is very pale and it looked great! I highly recommend this if you don't already have a favorite contouring product.  (I don't think this would work on you if you are much darker than me, as I have to pack on the color a bit for it to show up on me.)  If I could afford a backup I would get one, but I think this one will make it to the CCO because it's not getting much love.

Instant Chic- This is a nice muted coral to add to my collection.  This is not bright on the cheeks and gives a nice flush of color.  It's a nice blush to have if you don't have many pinks/corals in your collection, otherwise I'd probably skip this.  I wouldn't get a backup because I'm more into peach blushes.  

*Both blushes can be built up in color and not look cakey.  They look natural.  Downsides: not very pigmented and need dense brush to pick up the color better.

Dressmaker Dressmaker- (lustre) LOVE THIS! My favorite spring/summer lipstick!  It's a great peachy pink color.  Reminds me of Missy slimshine (which is more orange).  Love to use this with L'Oreal Colour Juice berry Burst lipgloss!  I want a backup... If you already have and love MAC Shy Girl, I'd pass on this.  But, since Shy Girl didn't work for me, I love Dressmaker!!

Made to Order- This gives off a color that is "My Lip But Better" for me.  It's a sheer version of MAC Viva Glam Cyndi.  I like this for natural days so it's nice to have, but nothing to really rave about.  Also, the lasting power on this is much shorter than my other lustre lipsticks.

* Both these lipsticks pair beautifully with the blushes from this collection :)

Chromagraphic pencil-  I'm interested in this and want to try the NC15 one.  I keep hearing that people are loving it for their waterline.  I tried the NC30 pencil and it was too yellow.  I didn't even bother trying the other pencil.  

What are your thoughts on this collection??

LOVE MAC Pret-a-Papier!

Don't misjudge MAC Pret-a-Papier til you TRY it on YOUR FACE!! Seriously, the swatches don't do it any justice! 

hmmm yes I LOVE everything I purchased! I can't RAVE enough about it!! Not too brag, but I just think many people are judging it too quickly and not giving it a shot!  It might not make a BOLD statement, but it's lovely :) .  The blushes have lasted for at least 8 hours because it's still on since I tried it on at the counter! If I could afford backups, I would def get garb because I love to contour and I think it's an appropriate daytime contour that's not like "WHAABAAM, that girl gots contour!" haha  I think I am slightly seeing a muted peach/orange tinge to it at times... I guess that's the GOLDEN SUNTAN color, MAC refers to it as.  Well, this will probably hit my local CCO, since it's not popular yet.., so I can get it discounted when it does. :P  I hope I don't tan too much during the summer, or Garb might not work well on me :/.. But, whatevs! I got plenty of bronzers coming my way that'll be for contour! haha Can you tell I love contouring??? :D
