Customize your own MAC Eye or Blush Palette!


MAC has given us a brand new online tool to help customize your own Eye or Blush Palette!  Click on the picture above to take you to their website.  I’ve already been playing around with it (for far too long) and I’m thinking of going with natural shadows for a smoky day look.  Some eyeshadows I would recommend for this type of look would be shroom, naked lunch, or soba.

Have fun!


The start of an addiction

It all started when Sephora came to my neck of the woods over a year ago. I entered the glass doors on opening day and I instantly fell in love!  Everything was super bright and shiny and new.  Everyone was super excited and in such a great mood that it was infectious.  You couldn’t help but smile while you shop.  After about an hour (any longer and my credit card would have given out on me), I came out with a great haul!  First, I got the Sephora Two Tone Portfolio Brush Set ($57 CAD).  This brush set is amazing for someone (like me!) who’s starting out a makeup collection.  You get a blush brush, powder/complexion blush, eyeshadow blending brush, eyeshadow detail brush, concealer brush, and a retractable lip brush all in one handy travel portfolio!  If you do the math, that’s about $11 per brush.  Compare it to their normal prices individually, the brush set is a great steal.

I also picked up the Sephora Daily Brush Cleaner ($8 CAD) so I can keep my brushes nice and bacteria-free.  At $8 you can’t go wrong in protecting your brushes from nasty germs that can start growing on your brushes.  There’s also a Sephora Purifying Brush Shampoo that you can buy to wash your brushes but that’s a whole another post!  I rounded out my haul with some items that my mom wanted: the Sephora Nano Eyeliner in 05 – Chocolate ($7 CAD) and Sephora Eyebrow Pencil in Brown 2 ($13 CAD).  Yes, I went overboard with the Sephora brand items.  Don’t judge!

Till next time Makeup Addicts!
