My new toy!

Hi lovelies! I know it's been way too long. Here's my pic of the day. I upgraded my phone to the Samsung Galaxy S2 and I am absolutely in love with this "mini tablet" of a phone. My favorite FREE camera app is the Pudding Camera. It has different camera lenses and filters to choose from. I used the Fantasy lens with a vintage brown filter and I love how the picture came out.

MAC Bloggers' Obsessions Mini Haul

I really loved the idea of MAC reaching out to bloggers to help create a little collection. I do wish there were blushes in this collection, but I kind of had the feeling they were rushing this collection to be launched so no blushes or lipsticks. I didn't go crazy and buy every single item, but I am super happy with my purchase. I ordered Hocus Pocus (Sold Out) and Jealousy Wakes (Sold Out) eyeshadows and Sonoran Rain Lipglass.
Per Temptalia's website, MAC stated that they will be re-stocking the sold out items!!! Stay tuned for the waiting list ;)
I'm not going to go into too much detail with the colors and descriptions, but I will link the Blogger who created the colors ;) so enjoy the mini eye candy for now!

Moving In...

Dining & Kitchen area
Hey Dolls! Sorry that it's been a while since my last post. I've been busy moving into my new apartment with my boyfriend of 6 years, Chad. Our kitchen is fully furnished, we have internet & cable set-up, and we are getting our sectional couch on Sunday. This is such an exciting and huge step in our relationship. We have lived an hour away from each other for the past 6 years and now we're finally living under one roof ;)
Living room
Oh, and this Saturday is the Seattle Meet & Greet with Itsjudytime! For those of you who don't know, Judy, Benji and I have known each other since high school. It's always fun to know that I know someone famous! I'm so excited to meet new people and see the ones who attended our last meet & greet last year. This is going to be huge because the restaurant we are hosting it at is closed while we have our get together. We're expecting about 40+ people to attend and we really want to fill up the place!

So that is my quick update of how things are going with me. What have you been up to?

Love & Care,

MAC Surf Baby Haul & Swatches

Hi Dolls! It's been requested that I post what I bought from the MAC Surf Baby collection and swatches immediately. So here is your eye candy for the day ;)
The Skinsheen Bronzer stick in Tan Tint is described as a soft suntan bronze. It has a matte/satin finish, which is nice because I prefer no shimmer in my bronzer. Tan Tint is the "lightest" bronzer of the three that came in this collection and is more suitable for light to medium dark skintones. Do not just run the stick across your cheeks! A little goes a long way and is best applied with fingers, lightly dabbing on your cheeks, with a sponge applicator or a stippling brush, like the 188. I would apply this after foundation, but before powder. You do have to work quickly because it can also set/dry quickly. A lot of bloggers say this is similar to MAC's Weekend cream bronzer that came out last summer 2010 with the To The Beach collection.
Gilded White Powerpoint pencil is described as a warm white gold, with a metallic sheen. It does have a hint of yellow. The product itself has a soft texture and glides on smoothly on the lash line or waterline. Powerpoint pencils in general are long lasting, waterproof and won't smudge or budge once its dry.
Hibiscus Lipstick is a must-have from the collection! It's described as a bright orange coral and is a cremesheen. Cremesheens are one of my favorite finishes, next to amplified! This color screams summer and is a very wearable coral. It's not as bright and opaque like Toxic Tale and is definitely more of a darker coral than Ever Hip. If you could only get one lipstick from this collection, Hibiscus is the one to get!
Another must-have from Surf Baby is My Paradise Cheek Colour. It is described as a peach pressed powder with a gold hibiscus overspray/overlay. This can be a bit powdery, so I suggest using a MAC 168 or any angled blush brush for application. It's definitely more orange than NARS Orgasm and has more gold shimmer compared to Benefit's Coralista. Marine Life from the To The Beach Collection is a little more darker, less orange and less shimmery than My Paradise. The gold overspray will last quite a while since it's raised and has a thicker layer than Marine Life. Overall, this is a really pretty shade ;)
I picked up three of the five eyeshadows. All the shadows apply smoothly with great color payoff!
Sun Blonde is described as a dirty yellow gold with a Frost finish. It's looks more like a satin, than a frost. I don't have any color like this in my eyeshadow collection, so I just had to get it. I like how it's not a super bright yellow and is definitely a more wearable yellow compared to the ones in the permanent line.
Saffron is described as a deep coral caramel with a Satin Finish. I would describe it more like a reddish orange. This is a repromote from the Mickey Contractor collection. I didn't get this one last time because I wanted to see it in person and none of my MAC stores were carrying the collection in stores.
Surf USA is described as a vibrant teal with a Frost Finish. It's not too frosty. It's not a very unique color, but I'm a sucker for teal eyeshadows. Based on swatches online, it is very similar to Gulf Stream, which I don't have. Make sure to check your stash!
Left to Right: Saffron E/S, Sun Blonds E/S, Surf USA E/S, My Paradise, Tan Tint, Hibiscus, Gilded White 
I'll be picking up Lush Light Studio Careblend Powder, and maybe a few more things, when the collection launches on May 26th. Please let me know what you will be getting from Surf Baby!

Love & Care, 

MAC Surf Baby Unveiling Event Photos!!!

Linda, Yours Truly & Jess
Hi lovelies! As you know in my previous post, I attended the MAC Surf Baby Unveiling party last night with my fellow beauty blogger Linda and met with the beautiful & talented Jess and her friend who has the cutest babies on earth Jackie! We all had so much fun laughing and eating! Can't wait to hang out with you lovelies again :) There were hott men serving margaritas and bite-sized food such as choco churros, taquitos with avocado sauce, mini burgers and pineapples on a stick, just to name a few. You could get shirts airbrushed at the little surf shack they had in the store, too. I also ran into a few friends I haven't seen in forever! I will be posting product swatches and a detailed haul sometime next week when the collection actually comes out because I think I might have to get a few more items! Overall, this was a great experience and I hope to attend more events like these, not only with MAC, but with other companies as well. Enjoy!

MAC Surf Baby Unveiling!

Linda and I got together like 3 weeks ago and went into our local MAC store. The MAC artist told us that they are having an unveiling party for Surf Baby and you just know we had to sign up! I've never been to an unveiling before because we live in Seattle, and these kinds of parties rarely happen.
The unveiling party at MAC is on Tuesday, May 17th at 7-9pm. They'll have cocktails and canapes sponsored by Jose Cuervo! Heyyy! They'll also have a surf shack where you can stencil on t-shirts or anything you bring that you can decorate on. So excited! I will definitely take loads of pictures for you lovelies :)
I also can't wait to meet the gorgeous Jess! I love her blog and she mentioned she'll be at this event so hollerrr! So what's on my little list of Surf Baby goodies? I definitely want the My Paradise Cheek Colour, Hibiscus Lipstick, Sun Blonde, Saffron and Surf USA eyeshadows and Gilded White Powerpoint eye pencil. My maybes are Tan-tint skinsheen bronzer and the Studio Careblend bronzers. Are any of you going to your MAC unveiling? Let me know what's on your shopping list ;)

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

I bought these babies at Ulta when they were having 40% off NYX, Maybelline, Almay and Revlon. I absolutely love these! They have a creamy, mousse texture and dries matte. They're light weight and does not dry out my lips. It has a doe foot applicator with a soft vanilla cupcake scent. The wear is about 3-4 hours, but it does come off when you eat. They are considered lip glosses, but I think they're more like liquid lipsticks since they are very opaque and not glossy at all. The 2 colors I got were Addis Ababa, a bright pink, and Amsterdam, a tomato red. They come in 11 different shades, all ranging from nudes to brights to bolds. They are currently Buy 2 Get 1 Free on ALL NYX Cosmetics at!!!
Product: 4/5
Packaging: 5/5
Quality: 4/5
Overall: 4/5
Re-purchase? YES!
Price: $5.99 - $6.00
