Thanks for joining me for my January 2013 Favorites!

Celebratory Anniversary Makeup Giveaway!!!

Oh my goodness, can you believe it’s been almost a year since I launched this blog and my Youtube channel? Time certainly does fly when you are having fun!

You all have been such a blessing to me over this year. I have made so many friends and I truly appreciate the time you take to read this blog, watch my Youtube videos and chat with me on Facebook and Twitter. Choosing to spend time with me makes my day and I hope I have brought a smile into your as well!!

I wanted to do something really special for you guys so I thought and thought about what would be an awesome giveaway for such an awesome group of people. I decided to give some of my favorite things away.

Review: Loreal Infallible 24 Hour Lacquer Liner

Good news, Loreal has a great new formula in their new gel eyeliner.  I picked up one of the new Loreal Infallible 24 hour Lacquer Liners to give it a test drive.  I had high expectations and was not disappointed.

This is what Loreal says about them:

“L’Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H for eye design that is simply sophisticated. 24 hours of flawless, fade-free color with a unique lacquered finish. Mistake-proof application plus the ability to customize your line with a smooth-gliding brush. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. ”

These gel liners do have some shine, but if you don’t like that you can always put a matte shadow of the same color over them. They last all day without budging or fading.  We will never know if they last 24 hours because I don’t leave my makeup on for 24 hours, not even in the interest of science.  LOL  It comes with a brush that is okay.  Its not my favorite, but I don’t hate it.  It doesn’t come to a fine tip, so its a little “different”.  Its not mistake proof, no gel eyeliner is.  I’m not sure why Loreal says that the liner is mistake proof.  Perhaps its because they never met me.  I made a mistake with the brush on my first attempt trying to figure out how best to use it.  The formula glides on smoothly and is very pigmented.  It did not bother my sensitive eyes.

I’ll pick these up in the future instead of the Mac Fluidlines and Bobbie Brown gel eyeliners because I believe they preform just as well.  Of course, if Mac or Bobbie Brown have a cool color I’ll pick that up too, but for the basic black, brown  bronze, etc, Loreal has my vote.

The Laquer Liner retails for $9.99 at Ulta. It comes with the eyeliner brush.  You can also get them at any drugstore, but the price may vary, as is the way with drugstore items.  Different drugstores charge different amounts.

So have you tried these?  I’d love to hear your view on them!

I purchased these items and was not compensated for this review.  As always, these are my own, honest opinions.

Mac Heavenly Creatures Haul and Swatches

Mac has launches their Fall 2012 mineral collection, Heavenly Creatures.  It seems a little early for fall collections, especially given the heat wave we have been under,  but alas, here it is.  Get ready for fall.

I picked up a few things from the collection including eyeshadows, a blush, a mineralized skin finish, lipstick and lipglasses.  Its a large collection so my haul was small when compared to the offerings.

I got four eyeshadows, but I was disappointed in two of them.  Sky, the blue shadow, fell a little flat in my opinion.  Also, Universal Appeal was a disappointment.  I was expecting more purple, but when swatched its just brown:(  That’s the problem with mineralized eyeshadows.  They look beautiful in the pan, but sometimes they don’t swatch well.    Magnetic Attraction is beautiful in the pan and swatched.  Aurora is a brown, but you can still pick up a hint of the peach undertones.  Its a pretty shadow as well, especially when used wet.

They are offering four Mineralized Skin Finishes. I picked up the one in Light Year.  Its a pretty peachy pink with gold micro glitter.  Unfortunately I had an allergic reaction to it. For those of you who can use it, it is very pretty.  This one did accentuate  pores on my cheeks.

I picked up one of the blushes, Ring of Saturn.  Its a pretty red color that gives you a bit of a sunburned look.

I also picked up 2 lipsticks, Cut the Caper and Fire Sign.  Cut the Caper is a repromote.  Its an orangy coral.  It has a luster finish.

Fire Sign is a beautiful pinky red.  It has lustre finish.

To go with Cut the Caper lipstick, I picked up Meteoric Cremesheen Glass.  Its a pretty coral lipgloss with orange shimmer.  Like all Cremesheen Glasses, it is sticky.

I also picked up Galaxy Rose Cremesheen Glass to go with Fire Sign lipstick.  Its a beautiful pinky red.  It is sticky as well.

So that is it for my Mac Heavenly Creatures haul. Did you pick up anything?

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!!!!
