Color Club Back To Boho Collection for Fall 2011 Swatches & Review – Part I

Color Club Back To Boho Collection for fall 2011 features twelve new colors with a very 70’s vibe.

Most of the collection consists of creme polishes, but there are a few that give us more sparkle.

Today I’ve got the first half of the collection. I didn’t have any issues per-se with the formula, but some are super thin and sheer and take time to build up. One was a streaky nightmare and one was perfection.

A Wookiee Prays

Normally when I am home, Chewy is pestering me in the office ALL DAY to go out into the backyard. On this day he was completely mesmerized with looking up towards the sky out the window.

MAC Me Over! Icelandic Cool Collection Look

Hello again!

Here is a look I did with the soon to be released MAC Me Over! Icelandic Cool collection.

This is a pretty simple look, I didn’t do anything fancy here so anyone can easily re-create this.

Products used:

Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm on face
Benefit Brow Zings in Light on brows
MAC Shadestick in Tundra all over lower eyelid
MAC Eye Shadow in Haunting on top of Tundra all over lid
MAC Shadestick in Cakeshop on under eye line
MAC Shadestick in Heirloom on inner corner of eye
MAC Gesso Eye Shadow under browbone
Wet n Wild MegaEyes Cream Liner in Black on upper lid and lower waterline
MAC Opulash Optimum Black Mascara
MAC Powder Blush in Pink Swoon
MAC Strobe Cream as highlight on cheekbones
MAC Lipglass in Good Times

Still not a fan at ALL of Good Times because of the settling into lip lines, but I really like the Shadesticks. Easy to apply and very blend-able.

MAC Matchmaster Foundation SPF 15 Official Preview

Matchmaster Lineup 72

Who doesn’t want a foundation to look as real as your skin tone? With our All Races credo, we’ve redefined what a perfect match should be thanks to the NEW Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation. Simplified, this technology uses translucent pigments to create a formula that enables a fully personalized finish influenced by the subtleties of your own skin tone.  
Adding to Matchmaster’s true-to-life appeal is its moisturizing demi-matte finish, medium buildable coverage, and line-reducing soft-focus powders that help soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Add the fact that this formula reduces excess shine-creating oil, and who could resist?
Matchmaster has the ability to resist humidity and perspiration without losing its smooth skin feel. Launching with a spectrum of 14 light to deep dark shades and making its debut on counter with the 193 Angled Foundation Brush and 190 Foundation Brush… isn’t it time you met this match?
