My Top 10 Favorite MAC Eyeshadows

Hey, I got this lovely idea from A Brilliant Brunette's blog, so I though I'd share a couple of my favorite MAC eyeshadows that are from their permanent collection.

Listed from left to right in-order of the picture.
1. Goldmine - shimmery pigmented real gold
2. Cranberry -pigmented berry with purple glaze
3. Nylon - MY FAVE! especially for my inner eye. pigmented creamy pearl
4. Beauty Marked - black/maroon sparkles. Good for the crease area
5. Mulch - pigmented pearly brown. Good for the crease area
6. Amber Lights - very pigmented bronze/gold with shimmers
7. Humid - very pigmented forest green. I LOVE THIS
8. Sketch -matte maroon. Good for the crease area
9. Electra -for my inner eye. pigmented true silver
10. Deep Truth - pigmented navy with cobalt sparkles.


Another eyeshadow that I don't have pictured or own is MAC Jest (which is a shimmery champagne) and it is perfect for my everyday wearing alone. I need to purchase this and I highly recommend it.

New LE Maybelline Fashion Week Fall 2010 Collection Review

Hey guys, I'm going to do a few more posts on Fall makeup trends as my next few posts. Once again Rite Aid had a 40% off products a few weeks ago.
I always check before I head to the drugstores to know what's on sale that week. I had a lot of things I wanted from the company so I decided to try new things. These two things are from their Fall 2010 collection and are limited edition.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Berry Beautiful (941)

What I really like about this lipstick is that is is creamy and works as good as the other Color Sensational lipsticks I already own. The color is a dark fuchsia with plum/blue undertones and no shimmer or shine. Its a unique shade and glad I got this. Plus, I love how it smells.

Maybelline LE Eyeshadow Palette in Charming Cobalt (90)

This was my first time trying Maybelline Eyeshadow after they changed the formula so I didn't know what to expect. Usually their eyeshadows are a hit or miss and I would say this one is in the middle. I wanted some neutral everyday colors so I chose this.

Lid (Shiny Taupe), Crease (Dull Matte Green/Teal), Browbone (Shiny Sand)

I really was looking forward mostly to the browbone color and luckily that one is super awesome.
The lid color is a shiny taupe brown with silver glitters. This color is very good and long lasting. It's very similar to MAC - Banshee but not as sparkly.
The crease color is a dull teal that has a matte finish. The color is decently pigmented and builds up, which is something I prefer rather than taking too much and messing up my crease. The color looks a bit green based on my because of my strong yellow undertones.
The browbone is my fave and really good. It's a shiny metallic sand color. I use this all over my lid and really like it. Sort of similar to MAC - Femme Fi in color.

Fashion Night Out NYC
I also think Maybelline is doing a Fashion Night Out Event tomorrow.
