I was asked to show my collection of MAC paint pots and thought I would put it up on my blog. I picked up 6 more today (Delft, Moss Scape, Fresco Rose, Rubenesque, Constructivist, and Indianwood) as I wanted to expand my collection, I have to admit these are so much better than the MAC paints because you can control the amount you use plus you don't waste your product unlike the tubes of paint a small squeeze and you waste so much. I wish I was able to get the 2 that came with the Alexander McQueen Collection and Fafi's Girl Friendly. I can't wait to try out my new ones. Stay tuned! ^_^

Rainy Day Blues

Doh!! It figures my one weekend where my hubby and I are free and guess what the weatherman says...RAIN!! Well it looks like a pizza and movie night for us. Oh well..I figured I would play a bit more with my makeup and try to practice the art of pigment LOL I used MAC Rollickin' paintpot, MAC Pigments (pressed) in Mutiny (Inner Lid), Bell Bottom Blue (Outer lid), and Dark Soul (outer V) with MAC #7 Lashes

Green with Envy

Inspiration comes from anything...mine was a hater..LOL Funny how I thrive on people that challenge me. At any rate I thought I would play around with my pressed pigments (they are so much easier to use than the loose form) and I came up with this. I used MAC Paint pot in Blackground as my base and MAC Pigments in Old Gold (Lid), Vintage Gold (inner lid), Steel Blue (outer v) and the highlight from my coastal scents neutral palette with #7 MAC Lashes.

All that Glitters (ELF and CS Shimmer Palette)

So I thought I would try something a little different for this entry. My subbies have been asking me for a long time to do tutorials but I have to admit I am too camera shy. So the next best thing I can do is do some looks and share it with you all. What I used for this look is ELF's eyeshadow stick in smoke for the base. I then used the bronze shimmer color from the Coastal Scents shimmer palette on the inner to mid lid. I used the black shimmer e/s from the CS shimmer palette to the outer V and a light gold highlight. I then added Black track fluid line and ELF Diamond lashes. I'm still in the midst of playing around with different looks but I hope to post more soon!

Only a few more weeks till MAC's Hello Kitty line!! I'm so excited!!
