MAC Moody Blooms Swatches and Review

MAC Moody Blooms

TGIF! MAC Moody Blooms is a new collection for summer 2014 and I’ve got some pieces to show you today.

The inspiration behind this collection is clearly flowers, but it’s the deeper, darker and more intense shades that you will see, rather than light pastel-like shades. Think intense violets, blackened plums, ivy green and electric pinks.

MAC Pedro Lourenco Swatches and Review

MAC Pedro Lourenco

Happy Friday afternoon! What are your plans this weekend? I’ve got a whole lot of backyard work that I *really* need to get to but keep putting off. Last fall we had eight trees removed that had planted themselves. Basically they were gigantic tree “weeds”. Well now we have about 15 more growing in the lawn! So yeah, we need to get to hackin’. Maybe we’ll catch a movie too.

Anyway back to the real reason we are here which is the new MAC Pedro Lourenco collection. This is a smallish collection that consists of 11 pieces including an Eye Shadow Quad, four Lipsticks, two Lipglasses, a Cream Colour Base, a Powder Blush and two Nail Lacquers. The packaging is black matte and gold. I love the black matte texture, super cool.

You can find everything on the MAC site now or in stores.

MAC Sharon and Kelly Osbourne Swatches and Review

MAC Sharon and Kelly Osbourne

The MAC Sharon and Kelly Osbourne has arrived at Vampy Varnish HQ!

I have to admit, I was fairly excited about this limited edition collection. I love the Osbourne family, papa Ozzy especially. I’ve been a Black Sabbath and Ozzy fan for about 30 years (yikes) and even though this has nothing to do with Ozzy really, I am still excited because Sharon and Kelly are pretty awesome. I want Kelly’s lavender/grey hair so very badly, but don’t have the chutzpah to dye it that shade.

So this collection has two sides. The Sharon Osbourne side (red packaging) and the Kelly Osbourne side (purple packaging). I love the contrast between the two but also love how they look so good together. From the pieces I have it seems the Sharon side has more warmer tones and the Kelly side has cooler ones, which should surprise no one who has seen her. Everything in the collection has their signature on it. Sharon’s signature is written in purple and Kelly’s is red, which makes everything go together even more.

195 MAC Lip Swatches Just for Fun

I am a sucker for a collage. The other day I was scrolling through all the photos I have taken and I decided I wanted to create one for some of my zillions of MAC lip swatches. So here you go!

Oh and you can ask me which is what color and I will try to answer you correctly, but it might take me some time. They are all totally random and I didn’t really track the names in the collages.
