Happy Friday!

Did you have anything exciting happen this week? Not so much for me, more of the same.

What are your favorite cheeses and how do you like to eat them?

MAC Chenman Collection for Spring 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

MAC Chenman

MAC Chenman is a collection based on Chen Man. She is a huge star in the Chinese fashion photography arena, and got her start taking a bunch of cover photos for the Shanghai based fashion magazine, Vision. Honestly I had never heard of her until this collection was announced but now I have seen some of her work and she’s really quite awesome.

This collection features a lot of blue and pink tones, which were inspired by her fascination with love and water. It’s not a huge collection (yay!) and includes some things I have fallen in love with already.

Milani High Speed Fast Dry Nail Lacquer for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review

Short on time? Milani High Speed Fast Dry Nail Lacquer might be what you need.

These lacquers come in six new shades and are meant to be a one-coat super fast drying formula. The colors not shown are Black Swift (black), Jiffy Orange (bright orange) and Rapid Cherry (bright red).

For me none of these were really one-coaters. They were either too uneven to just do one coat or not quite as opaque as I would like. So I used two on all of them.

Yellow Whiz is a bright cool yellow. I know it looks warm in this pic but in actuality, it’s cooler toned. Bright but not neon. Streaky, but not nearly as bad as a lot of yellow polishes out there are.

Benefit Boo Boo Zap!

Benefit Boo Boo Zap

One might think that by time they’re in their 30’s, acne would be a thing of the past. But sadly, not always. In fact I may have more break-outs now than I did when I was in my teens!

Luckily Benefit Boo Boo Zap! is here. This is the same formula they had before, but in new pretty packaging.

The day I received this in the mail I was in the midst of a huge pimple on my chin. Not the kind you can easily cover up either. More like the kind where you wear a Band-aid over it and pretend you cut your face while shaving…No? ;)

But don’t worry I will spare you a revolting close-up shot of said pimple.
