Mac Heavenly Creature: What Did Christy Order?

Mac has done it again! They released another collection before the official release date. This time it is the Heavenly Creature collection, which is their mineralized collection for summer 2012.

Its a fairly large collection, to say the least. They have everything from Skinfinishes, blushes, eyeshadows, brushes, lipsticks, cremesheen glasses and skincare.

So what did I pick up from this collections?

Three mineralized eyeshadows in Sky, Universal Appeal and Aurora.
One mineralized skinfinish in Light Year
Two lipsticks in Fire Sign and Cut the Caper
Two Cremesheen Glass glosses in Meteoric and Galaxy Rose

I’ll do a youtube haul when these arrive and then a review just as soon as I get a chance to play with them.

Are you going to pick anything up and if so what are you going to get? I’d love to hear!!!!

How To Clean / Sanitize your Clarisonic and Olay Brush Heads

I’ve come up with a nifty way to sanitize the brush heads for your Clarisonic or Olay face brush. Put them in the dishwasher! My hygienist told me to sanitize my Sonicare toothbrush heads in the dishwasher so I decided to give it a go with my Olay brush head. It worked:) Yea!

Review: Milani Eyeshadow Pencils

One of ilani’s latest releases has been their cream eyeshadow pencils. They come in a variety of colors from neutrals to bold brights.

These pencils are really nice.  They are creamy and do not tug at your eyelid when you apply them.  They blend well (the white one blends a little too well for certain eye looks).  I didn’t have any creasing and they easily lasted a good 10 hours without fading.

The only issue I had was with the white pencil.  These pencils claim to be highly pigmented, which the blue one is, but when you touch the white shadow, it turns into a sheen.  Its pretty, don’t get me wrong, but the color is almost impossible to build.  It makes a beautiful highlight though.

So, have you picked up any of these shadows and if so what do you think of them?

Dupe: Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

I love Tarte’s Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush, but I don’t love the price. At $32, its kind of steep, but I got it with the foundation in a deal on QVC so it wasn’t so bad.

The dupe is very affordable. It is the Eco Tools Bamboo Bronzer brush. Its slightly smaller in width than Tarte’s brush, but it preforms the same. I love the both! The Eco Tools brush is $12.49 at Ulta and if you catch the right sale you can get the Eco Tools brushes buy one, get one 1/2 off. That deal is going on as I type, by the way!

20% off Milani Powdered Eyeshadows at CVS Online

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been to every CVS in my area at least 3 times each trying to find the new Milani Powdered Eyeshadows. For whatever reason it escaped me to look on the cvs.com for them…..until tonight!

In desperation I hopped on the web and sure enough, there were the shadows, well, most of them anyway. I really wanted Caramel Brown and Olympian Blue, but they were sold out. Anyway, I was able to get the other ones I wanted and I got 20% off with the coupon code 20DISCOUNT. This code is good until June 24th so if you want some of these shadows, or anything else on the site for that matter (its 20% off everything) hurry up. The discount gives you $1 off each shadow making them $3.99 each.

I did have to pay shipping, grrrrr, but hey, I’ve spent more than that running around from one CVS to another trying to hunt these eyeshadows down.

Of course I’ll haul them when they get here, but in case you are interested I picked up Brown Stone, Just Perfect, Gold Dust, White Lie, French Vanilla, Tickled Pink and Shocking Pink. They were $27.93 after the 20% off, but my shipping was $5.49.

Can’t wait to get them and show them to you!! Have you picked any up or have you been running around trying to find them? Do share!!
