MAC to the Beach + NYX lipsticks

Hey there ladies,

Sorry I wasn't able to blog yesterday, was busy.

Anyways I'm here now, and finally got my Cherry Culture NYX lipsticks. I've been waiting for these guys for a month now. I got Acapulco and Narcissus.


Top: Narcissus, Botton: Acapulco

Acapulco lipstick- I love this lipstick. I tried it on yesterday with Myth on top and Underage as a gloss and it's fab. I heard a lot of bloggers and YT gurus raving about this, so might as well try it right? Super happy I did. I really recommend this if you love rosy pink lippies.

Narcissus Lipstick- They said this is a great duper for MAC Saint Germain which is a pro color. I have Saint Germain, but I need this one as well. They're right indeed that it is a dupe for Saint Germain, but it has a less lilac undertone to it and more pink. I would say it is more wearable than Saint Germain. If you guys have this one then don;t get Saint Germain, but if you guys want it, then go for it. That's what I did. I mean it's worth every penny I must say.

Now with the MAC to the Beach collection.
I only have couple of products here, but I will be getting the other three later. so come back=)
I thought this collection will launch today, but my friend texted me yesterday and said that it's out at our MAC store. So I called and reserved Marine Life, Hipness blush, and Refined Golden Powder Bronzer. They were out of Marine Life- yes, that quick! =( so, I just bought the bronzer and the blush. After I purchased these guys, I went to The Bay and went to my MAC counter to see f they have Marine Life there, unfortunately to the Beach collection isn't available yet(yesterday), but they have it now. So I will be getting it later =) I pre-payed for it already so it's mine now! haha. So come back later to see Marine Life, Splashing Lipglass and I back to MAC Oyster Girl Lipglass.

Swatch of Hipness Powder Blush

Hipness(Frost)- It's pink, it also has a slight frost finish to it, not to frosty tho. I really like this color, but the packaging is kinda I don't know, boring? I like the color of the pot, but I don't like the starfish on it. I'm really excited to try this blush.
Refined Golden Powder Bronzer- I was suppose to get the cream bronzer, but when I tried it on my hand, it's way to sheer and shimmery. I didn't like the finish to it, but I will wait and research on how people wear it, and if they like it or not then I will probably get it. This bronzer however, has a gold shimmer to it, not to much tho. I really like the color payoff and the finish. This is a permanent product, so if your MAC counter doesn't have this and Golden bronzer, don't panic it's permanent.

  5. I really love the case for the bronzer. I don't really know anything about make-up, so I think I'm just really attracted to packaging.
