Milani Coming Up Roses Powder Blush

20130905-202844.jpg

This is my first purchase from a cosmetics brand called Milani, the prices are very affordable and the color payoff is amazing in general.

Those blushes are limited edition called Coming Up Roses Powder Blush and come in 4 shades: 01 Romantic Rose, 02 Flora Passion, 03 Warm Petals and 04 Bella Rosa.

It was difficult for me to find those blushes since they were limited edition and sold out so i started looking for buyers on instagram and ebay until i found one that sells all 4 blushes together, and since the blushes are originally prices cheap (in my opinion) i didnt worry much for paying more on those so i got them.

Nude Lipsticks

20130822-013839.jpg

I am a sucker for nude lipsticks, whenever i go purchase makeup i have to come home with nude lipsticks, they always attract my eyes between all this makeup goodness.

On my last MAC shopping i took my BACK2MAC and got 2 nude lipsticks (Honeylove and Half n Half) and one pink (Pink Plaid).

In addition i bought my favorite lipgloss from MAC which is called Lust, i love it so much that i keep on repurchasing it. Also i got another nude lipstick which VivaGlam II, and just in case you dont know this information but you cannot take a VivaGlam lipstick from your BACK2MAC because part of the lipstick fee goes to AIDS CHARITY and support.

If you are not familiar with BACK2MAC program it is basically returning 6 packaging back to MAC and you will get one lipstick free from the permanent line in return (note that you cannot return Limited Edition packaging, lash packaging and wipes bag), and MAC will get those packaging back for recycling purposes.

The Perfect Lip Combo

20130822-012848.jpg

Im loving bright color for lips and currently im enjoying this lip combo which is Please Me lipstick by MAC with a little bit of Candy Yum Yum also by MAC.

Candy Yum Yum is a gorgeous color by itself, its a very bright neon like pink but i am not afraid to use it, but i like to keep my lipstick reasonable when i go out but i still wanna use it, and then is when i created this lip combo, Candy Yum Yum will add just the perfect brightness to Please Me.

Both lipsticks are matte and MAC matte lipsticks are a bit drying so i always apply a lip balm before applying lipstick.

MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow in Brownluxe

20130707-161005.jpg

This collection came out of no where to me, i wasnt aware of it until few days of the collection’s launch. Those eyeshadow lines are so not MAC, that’s why i was really surprised when i first saw the collection’s photos.

I only got one “pearlfusion shadow” which is called Brownluxe, i am loving the colors and using it almost every day since i got it. The colors are really beautiful especially the shimmery/glittery ones. Some of the eyeshadow lines are slimmer that others which makes it difficult to put a brush in there, so either use a small blush or be careful while using the regular sizes.

Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadows are not yet launched in the UAE, i ordered mine online from Nordstrom using my US Shop & Ship account.

My Picks: MAC Temperature Rising Collection

20130707-160234.jpg

I have posted before about MAC’s recent collection which is called Temperature Rising, i have bought almost half of the items online from Nordstrom when it was first launched, but i missed some of the items that i really wanted so i went this time and got them, and i also bought some more which i saw are really pretty in real.

So those are what i got from Temperature Rising collection:

Lipstick: Feel My Pulse (Magenta Purple), Caliente (dazzle bronze/burgundy)
Lipglass: Liquid Passion (nude), Soft Serenade (beige with sparkle), Underdressed (tan with shimmer).
Blush: Hot Nights (pink), Ripe For Love (peach).
Eyeshadow Quad: Bare My Soul.
PowerChrome Eyepencil: Copper Strip, Life’s Luxury.
Nailpolish: Scorching Haute (magenta), Tropical (bronze).

Overall I’m loving and really enjoying some of the items so far especially Soft Serenade lipglass which i use it almost everyday on top of Kinda Sexy lipstick.

Dior Paradise Duo in Coral Glow

20130704-203701.jpg

DiorSkin Nude Tan Paradise Duo in 002 Coral Glow. An iridescent blush and bronzing powder, comes with a small kabuki brush.

I didnt use the product yet but it looks pretty gorgeous from its pan. I couldn’t find it at our local beauty stores in my area, it was sold out, even the pink one. Since it is a limited edition i had to get it one way or another before it runs out for good so i had to order it online from www.feelunique.com which is a UK website. They don’t directly ship some items to my country, and it was one of them, so i had to use my UK Shop and Shop account by Aramex.
