This month, well… in April, MAC Cosmetics came up with two collections that I was excited to get (there were actually 5 released). These are the MAC In Extra Dimension, all eyeshadows and highlighters, and MAC Très Cheek, all blushes. I actually bought things in three separate occasions.
The first time, I got four eyeshadows in Modern Pewter, Sweat Heat, Havana and Rich Core; one of the highlighters in Superb, and three blushes in Peony Peatal, Immortal Flower and Modern Mandarin; but on the same day I went out with a friend and she wanted to go to the MAC counter at Nordstrom. The lighting there is different, less white and bright, so I was showing my friend the new collections and when I swatched Lovecloud and Whisper of Guilt I couldn’t resist.
The last time was on one of the MAC events, they usually had an event every time there’s a new collection, you just need to get an appointment and they do your whole make up for free with the new products. So I went there, and the girl who was working on me, her name is Haley (I love to go when she is there, she’s super nice to me), used the Blue Orbit eyeshadow on me and the shade look so much better than I expected, it also was the last one so it was meant to be. With the In Extra Dimension collection they re-released the two split fibber brushes that came out with the Semiprecious collection last year, there weren’t a lot of reviews for these, mainly they just said that it might be awkward to work with or such, but I wanted to give it a go with at least one of them.
I’m really happy that I ended up getting Whisper of Guilt. The golden tone of it is much easier to pull off with my fair skin than with Superb, which is also beautiful , I just can use bronzer with it because then it’s just to much color on the face and seems harsh. If I had to pick, I think these are the best of everything in the haul. It’s like you have the most amazing healthy glow on your skin. These are everything a highlighter should be.
I found this brush super useful! I tend to use a cream base before I apply eyeshadow, and I hate use my fingers to do so, that’s why this is so perfect!
And make up continues…
I wanted to try the Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Foundation for a while now, people just talk about it like it’s the most beautiful thing for your face. It’s quite pricey and that’s why I never decided to get it. A few weeks ago I saw that Chanel has just released the compact version of that particular foundation, so it’s a cream. I prefer cream type foundations because they usually give you extra coverage, so then I went for it.
I got the shade 10 Beige, which is the lightest of their warm tones. It’s a bit ticker, but that doesn’t really bother me… what it does bother me is that it is super yellow! I have to be careful with it, to prevent that by applying to much or something… I don’t really know… I’ve only used it three times, maybe I need more time with it to give my opinion.
I felt so bad after I bought all of these! it was to much in such a short time… I didn’t get another foundation because of it, but it is lovely, absolutely gorgeous on the skin, it’s the new Estée Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup. I learned about its existence about a couple of days after I purchased the Chanel compact, so I prefer to ask for a sample of it. The woman at the counter gave me two samples of two shades to see which one would suit me the best, and for what I could see, I can get away with either. The finish is so nice and I swear… you can’t feel there’s any foundation on your face… it’s unbelievable.
I’m going to be good and wait until I finish up another foundation before getting this one… *sigh*
In a completely different matter… THE GYM!!
I’ve been going for two weeks now, eating healthy and trying to be as committed to it as I can. The first week was like hell for my body!! I was completely sore… no fun… the worst of it came when I got into a Body Attack class. After the first 20 minutes of it, my feet and my calfs starting to hurt so badly and by the end they were numbed, I thought that I was going to fall at any second. I’m going to the class again tomorrow and I’m so scared! LOL
Last weekend, my husband went with me to swim, oh lord… I missed it so much! I didn’t remember how much I love to swim and it made me feel so relax… all the pain in my body disappeared. There’s a weird thing with the pool though… it’s a saltwater pool, so they don’t use chlorine on it, your skin and hair don’t get damaged, but I feel like I have to be spitting all the time, because of the salty flavor it leaves on the mouth… I’ll get over it after a few weeks.
Oh right! The trimester for my master degree just begun too! I only took one class, mainly because of the trainer’s sessions cost. I have no idea how long is going to take me to finish my degree but I’m not in a hurry anyway ha! I guess it’s not one of my priorities anymore…
Everything depends of what’s going on at an specific moment in life, I’ll wait to see what the future has coming for me
