MAC Double Dazzle Haul & Swatches

Posted by Jane at 10:30 AM 11 comments
as some of you may have already know.. the double dazzle collection was released early.. from what i know mac stores + nordstroms released on april 9th &when i called macy's they released on april 10th (the next day) &they've been available online as of april 14th.

so of course i went as soon as i found out to check them all out! i was also uber happy to find out &confirm w/ the MA that all the dazzleglasses are now part of MAC's permanent line except for 3 of them -- Goldyrocks, Utterly Posh, &Stop! Look! which are limited editions to this collection release. so no need to hurry on any of the other colors. 7 new colors were released along w/ repromoted colors from previous dazzleglass collections.






top (L to R): money honey, utterly posh, rags to riches, &funtabulous
bottom: bubbles l/s

so i bought the first 3 &was able to B2M for the 4th one there. i didn't get date night or baby sparks yet but i'll go back for those along w/ 3 others that i have added to my wishlist. since they are all permanent now.. i can get them anytime. (= those 4 just really caught my eye in person &were calling my name to get first.. LOL!

i finally decided to buy bubbles l/s as well b/c the lovely leina of YT totally sold me on when she said they look great w/ dazzleglasses!

OVERALL: i am in LOVE w/ dazzleglasses! (=
&will definitely be buying MORE!!

*NOTE: i apologize for the picture quality as some of you may know that follow me on twitter my camera is broken so i used my phone to take these pictures! /=

bubble bath anyone??
so that is a picture of my bath using LUSH's bubble bar! (=

-- SOAPS --

Honey I Washed The Kids Soap
(Sweet honey heaven cleanses and moisturizes sensitive skin)

this one probably has to be my favorite soap that Lush has to offer. It smells SO good! (= it's not an over-powering honey scent either but just the right amount of honey goodness! the comb (top) part of the soap doesn't really melt when wet so i kinda just use it to exfoliate my skin as it's bit hard which is good for that. the other side glides nicely when bathing &leaves my skin feeling fresh+ clean &smelling SO yummy! (=

Porridge Soap
(Real oats make for a sweet, scrubby soap that's just right)

my piece of porridge didn't look anything like the picture above but more of a rice crispy piece but oats!?! (see picture below) if it had looked like that piece above than maybe i would have enjoyed it a lot more. it can be a bit messy w/ the oats &it gives off some color so you'll notice the water being colored as it goes down the drain. it is a great soap for exfoliating your skin b/c it scrubs your skin but it's not too rough. it lathers up pretty well but with each use it seem as if it was loosing most of the soap.. leaving me w/ just oats. i really wish there were more soap than oats like the picture on the website (above) it has a light lingering scent to your skin afterwards which i LOVE which smells like a bit of fresh orange juice mixed w/ molasses &leaves my skin super soft!

See!! 0_O


Ma Bar Bubble Bar
(Milk chocolate and toffee bubbles in the bath indulge your sweet tooth)

i am now in LOVE w/ their bubble bars. for this one i cut it in half so i could get 2 uses out of it but even half makes lot &lots of bubbles! i used the white side already (toffee side) &these bars make a tub full of SCENTED bubbles! (see picture at the very top) the bubbles that these bars create stick around as well whereas to liquid bubble bath where it would eventually disappear into the water leaving you with just water.. the smell is so relaxing as well! (= i almost fell asleep in my bath! /=


Angels On Bare Skin Cleanser
(Delicately cleanses and exfoliates for softer skin)

this cleanser is good for any skin type. i have normal/dry if you're wondering. there are grounded almonds for the purpose of gently exfoliating which gives off the smells of roses &lavender oil. i only got a sample of this which is fine b/c all you need is a pea-sized amount mixed with water in the palm of your hand to create an even paste &then cleanse like usual. for me i thought it kinda smelled weird at first but it's not too bad &i felt it did leave my skin feeling really soft like a baby's butt! (=

OVERALL: i am VERY happy with all the items i have purchased here from LUSH &would recommend them all as well as REPURCHASE any of them again! (= for the porridge though i have to make sure next time i get a piece w/ more soap &less oats. i do get kinda paranoid w/ the soaps b/c it smells SO sweet &good that i would get attacked by some bugs.. LOL! at least i don't live where there are mosquitoes. /=

for next time..
here are some of the other goodies that i've been think about for next visit to LUSH! (=

banana moon soap
i should coco soap
MMM melting marshmallow moment bath melt
hot milk bubble bar
temple of truth bubble bar
the comforter bubble bar
butterball bath bomb
honey bee bath bomb
think pink bath bomb

i will update you all on any future purchases as well! (=

Haulage of New Things!

Posted by Jane at 12:54 PM 9 comments
Forever 21the cute plaid top tunic/dress (it's long in length) was a fabulous find item for only $14.50 which i thought was a good deal b/c i've seen plaid going for $24-25 at other places. that top will be part of my easter outfit for this sunday. i plan on wearing it w/ some black leggings + heels! (=

the earrings are plain white hoops w/ a small gold chain wrapped around it. it's also from forever21 for $5.80 i never mentioned it BUT i am a sucker for accessories.. earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces, sunglasses.. you name it i have plenty! i use to spend so much money on JUST accessories but makeup has taken that place.. once in a while i'll go back.. LOL!

CCO = Cosmetic Company Outlet
so i went to CCO a couple weeks back b/c i was hoping to find some of the holiday collections there but they didn't have any of the things that i wanted from those collections there. so i got lippies instead.. i've been working on expanding that area of my collection right now anyway! (=

i got nymphette lipglass which is part of the permanent line so i was happy to find it there for cheaper. i got sockhop lipglass (from heatherette collection) to pair w/ lollipop loving l/s that i got with the sugarsweet collection &i wanted to be able to pair those 2 together &i also got take a hint tendertone b/c it just the prettiest pink &i LOVE pink!

MAC (Back 2 MAC)
i went to MAC to 'Back 2 Mac' for vanilla eyeshadow which B2M has to be a pot shadow so i'm gonna have to depot it b/c i decided to start storing my eyeshadows in palettes &only buy pan shadows from now on.. so of course i bought my first MAC pro palette + my first pan shadow in knight divine.

i la la love it!!

i went ahead &depotted a few of my shadows already &put them in there! as you can see i cracked swish + poison pen.. they were my first timers. /=

hope all of you are well! (=

MAC Grand Duos / Sugarsweet Collections Haul + Review

Posted by Jane at 2:48 PM 8 comments
i really loved these collections! for Sugarsweet i felt the colors went well together &both were great to help bring on the feel for spring. if you saw my wishlist on the Sugarsweet collection you probably noticed i cut out a lot of the things i was planning on getting not that i didn't want it anymore.. it really was my wallet still recovering from the MAC hello kitty collection &i didn't have enough time to re-save my money for these 2 collections. /=

Grand Duos: Mineralize Blush

Love Rock
(gold violet mélange / bright blue pink)

i originally wasn't planning on getting any of the Grand Duos mineralize blushes b/c from the promo pix they didn't seem to phase me so i was suppose to pass &then when i went to MAC for the Sugarsweet collection.. i decided to check them out &i fell in love w/ Love Rock + Intenso from this collection.

i only bought Love Rock which gives off a pretty pink color.. i will eventually have to go back for Intenso &must i tell ya.. all of the blushes in this collection are VERY pigmented so i think they are well worth it to buy + you get 3 different looks in one. you can wear either or side by itself as well as mixing both sides together!

Sugarsweet: Mineralize Skinfinish
(tan/peach/coral melange)

i felt that the MSFs in this collection were both really pretty &did not have that chunky glitter going on like most of the other MSFs that i've seen. originally i was planning to buy both MSFs but when i check them out in person i felt Perfect Topping looked very pretty for highlighting your face but since i don't really highlight too often i passed. i did get Refined b/c it was just right for my skin tone which would be great for bronzing as well as all over face for a beautiful healthy glow &i didn't own a bronzer previously to this one so i definitely had to get this one. (=

Sugarsweet: Lipsticks
Saint Germain
(clean pastel pink -Amplified)
Lollipop Loving
(clean mid-tone coral with subtle green with gold iridescence -Glaze)

lately i have been obsessed w/ lippies! (= so i definetly could not pass on the lippies from this collection.. i picked up 2! Saint Germain b/c it is a LE lippie that is usually not available in the U.S. but in Europe + Lollipop Loving b/c i didn't pick it up the first time around w/ the heatherette collection &i couldn't find it at any of the CCOs where i live.

as for the other lippies in the collection.. i am still indifferent about Bubbles (shimmery warm white -Glaze).. i might go back for it, i might not. /= i thought Sweet Thing (mid-tone magenta with multi-dimensional pearl -Lustre) was WAY too bright for me &Touch (Peachy Cinnamon -Lustre) is part of permanent line.

so i passed on..

Eye Shadows
Aquavert probably would be the only one i missed out on b/c Dear Cupcake in person was sorta chalky so i definitely did want it. Sugarshot looked like any ol' regular highlight. Stars N' Rockets + Club are both in the permanent line so i can get those 2 whenever. (=

i'm not really a shadestick kinda gal.. i like using paint pots for base or my NYX jumbo pencils BUT if you've noticed the packaging has change &so has the formula! as some of you may have known the old shadesticks were very hard to apply but these are much more creamier &the colors are very pretty. the can REALLY make the complementing shadows from this collection pop so you might wanna check those out!

Tricolour Lipglasses

they were just very weird to me + sheer = a NO NO!

Nail Lacquer
i had Seasonal Peach on my wishlist but i cut it out b/c i didn't feel like it was a unique color but i regret not getting Peppermint Patti now that it's SOLD OUT &no where to be found.. so if someone can track it down.. pretty PLEASE let me know! )'=

OVERALL: i REALLY loved the colors in this collection b/c they all complimented each other very well. i really wish i was able to buy more from this collection but i am happy w/ the items i did end up getting.. i am really sad that i didn't pick up peppermint patti nail lacquer. so ATTENTION if anyone has it &doesn't want it or is still able to get a hold of it PLEASE let me know b/c i'll pay you for it!!
