MAC Mariah Carey I’m That Chick You Like Eyeshadow Quad Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

You already know about my picks from MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection so today I want to post my review for MAC I’m That Chic You Like Eyeshadow Quad. There were actually two eyeshadow quads released as a limited edition, part of this collection and even though they were both available when I entered MAC store, I decided to choose only this one. As you know the exquisite packaging had an impact on the price for this collection overall, so each item was more expensive that usual. I personally like the combination of brown and gold shades and this palette seemed like the best choice for something I’d wear in the evening or special occasions. I actually used the shades from this palette on my New Year’s Eve makeup look as they lean to a shimmery finish and they are more suitable for a party or glamorous event.

MAC I’m That Chick You Like Eye Shadow x 4 ($41.00 / 184.00 Lei for for 0.19 oz.) is a set of four neutral shades with a shimmering finish. The limited edition palette comes in a glittery compact with a transparent lid and a magnetic closure. What I like about the packaging besides the fact that you can always see the shades is the fact that even though the edges are glittery they are super smooth to the touch. The shades from this palette are easily dupable so I understand why some of you were not really into this palette. Continue Reading

MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection My Picks

Hello pretties!

Many will agree that MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection was one of the most desired makeup collections of this season. For me personally it was an adventure to purchase these few products because most of the collection was sold out when I got to the counters. I had my wish list ready months before this collection launched, but so it came to pass that the launch date didn’t match my salary date. πŸ™‚ So basically when I was ready to start shopping, I had to call every MAC counter in my city and ask what products they still had available…unfortunately only these three came home with me. I admit I wanted the Loose Powder and another lipstick shades, but they were among the first products to fly off counters. MAC Mariah Carey Collection has definitely got everyone’s attention with its bling-bling sparkling packaging and the beautiful butterfly pattern on the lipstick or don’t even get me started on that gorgeous Extra Dimension Skinfinish.

I’m quite new to Douglas Makeup myself so I invite you to discover them together in case you haven’t already. Their prices are so affordable, almost competing with drugstores products.

MustaeV Smoky Quad, Smoke, Pink Mist, Peacock, Bambi, Scales Eye Shadows Preview, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

In order to complete the empty slots from my MustaeV 24 Eyeshadow Palette (review, photos) I still needed 5 eye shadows so I choose Smoke, Pink Mist, Peacock, Bambi and Scales single eye shadows for this job. I’m simply mesmerized by MustaeV eyeshadows and this season I’m more into dark colors so I also got MustaeV Smoky Quad Eye Shadow Palette to go along with the brown, pink and silver white shades. This month I realize that’s been actually two straight years since I first got to use my first MustaeV products and I can’t tell you how many wonderful products I discovered and got to use but I’m still trying to find that one MustaeV product that I don’t like. πŸ™‚
