New buy! MAC Glamour Check!

I love hearing what people's favorite eyeshadows are - I admit I am obsessed with finding new shadows to add to my growing collection. So when Tiffany (Youtube: MakeupbyTiffanyD) posted a new video on her favorite MAC eyeshadows, I HAD to watch it. Of course, like most people would, I immediately googled all the ones that I didn't have to find out how to get ahold of them (instead of going straight to MAC online).

I can't recall how, but some way I found out about - and they had Glamour Check available for $14 with free shipping. I jumped on that right away! I ordered them Nov. 25 a little after midnight, and it shipped the next day. And to my surprise it arrived in the mail today! Such amazingly fast shipping and great customer service.

Okay, now onto the photos! I tried my best to capture the shimmer in it, but these photos don't do it justice! It is SO pigmented!

I am far beyond excited to wear this to work today :) I love neutrals! :) Thank you so much for stopping in to ready this! :)

Review: La Femme blushes

About 3 weeks ago, Wayne of Gossmakeupartist on Youtube let the world know of the amazing blushes La Femme cosmetics produces. I took the plunge that weekend and ordered all the ones he mentioned that were suited for all skin tones.

Due to Wayne's suggestion to order them online from, I got each of them for $2.50. They are amazingly well priced for such fantastic quality! I got them in the mail about a week and a half after ordering them, which was torture! However, it was worth the wait!

I also ordered a MAC blush palette, but ended up removing the insert since I wasn't 100% certain how large the La Femme blushes were.

Wayne was so right - these blushes are INCREDIBLY pigmented. I use my Sigma Duo Fibre Powder/Blush brush (F15) to apply these :)

This is Coral Spice. It looks almost red, but it's SO gorgeous!

Next is Peach Sparkle - it, of course, has subtle sparkle in it.

Terracotta is a gorgeous, sparkly bright pop of color!

Peach is so lovely - adds a subtle glow to the cheeks.

Coral Spice has a soft hint of shimmer - not in the least bit too much :)

Mandarin Red is more of a pink with lovely shimmer as well :)

I am over the moon in love with these blushes. One of the best purchases I have made in a long time! I now know that I really have absolutely no reason to get any blushes for quite a long time, due to La Femme's pigmentation and price :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
