I purchased all the products in this video and I was not compensated to feature any product.  As always, these are my own, honest opinions.

Mac “Hey Sailor” Haul

I picked up a few things from the Mac “Hey Sailor” collection. Initially, when I saw the collection, I decided to grab four items right off the bat, just to make sure that I didn’t miss out. I picked up the lipstick in To Catch a Sailor, the highlight powder in Crew, the eyeshadow in Barefoot and a Pro Longwear Bronzing Powder in Nude on Board.  Later, when things were released at the counters, I went in and purchased the lipstick in Red Racer and also the lipglass in Blessedly Rich to put on top of the To Catch a Sailor lipstick that I had purchased online.  They are so pretty together! So, did you pick anything up from the collection? I’d love to know what you got or what you are planning to get!

Tutorial: The Golden Leprechaun – A Wearable Saint Patrick’s Day Eye Look

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day (one day early)!!!  Saint Patrick’s Day is very near and dear to me.  One Saint Patrick’s Day 12 years ago was one of the most special days in my life.  My nephew, who is my pride and joy, was born!! Showing his stubbornness he just barely made his appearance, and I mean withing a few minutes, on St. Patrick’s Day. What a blessing. I’m still crazy about my little monkey, even though he is in those moody pre-teen years.  LOL

I hope you enjoy this eye tutorial.  Its not over the top, but you can build the color if you want to make it that way. Let me know if you try it and what you think:)

Have a fantastic day!!

Chanel Las Vegas de Chanel Collection Haul & Review

I was in Las Vegas when the Chanel Las Vegas de Chanel collection launched. I first went to the Chanel counter at Barney’s New York in the Venitian and they had no idea what I was talking about, but sent me to the Chanel Boutique at the Wynn. By the time I hurried over there, there was only 2 powders and one lipstick left. Sheewwww, a near miss! I think I would have broken down and cried right there if I had gotten there and they had told me they just sold out!

Anyway, I picked up the Lucky Strikes Iridescent Powder for Eyes and Cheeks which is soooo gorgeous (and crazy expensive at $95). It is shades of sand and gold and you can use it as a highlighter on your face and eyes and also as an eyeshadow. It blends like a dream and looks amazing. I’m in love! See swatches below:)

I also picked up the Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in Brilliant. The name nails the way it looks. It is a sheer golden glaze and it is brilliant. I suggest that you use it over a lip liner or lipstick to give it a golden sheen. You could also use it on its own if you have pigmented lips, but I won’t be using it that way. Its very unique and I don’t have anything else like it in my collection. I like the Rouge Coco Shine formula. (see swatches below)

There was also a gold nail polish and a gold lip liner that I did not pick up. I can’t imagine using a gold lip liner and I didn’t find the nail polish to be especially unique, although it was very pretty.

The Exclusive Creation Las Vegas de Chanel products are available for a limited time at the Chanel boutiques at the Bellagio Hotel and Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas and also on chanel.com. You can call 1.800.550.0005 to check availability.
