MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS COLLECTION

Standard

Hi girls!

Gonna be doing a long post and it’s the long awaited Mac Archie’s Girls Collection. Here i will not be doing swatches because if I do, it will be a very very verrrryyy long post so I’ll be doing a separate one later on. But for those of you who are interested in what I got from this collection, then keep on reading 🙂

MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS COLLECTION

As you know, the collection itself is huge. They have this collection separated consisting of Betty’s and Veronica’s.

Betty’s collections are more on the neutral “girl next door” colors while Veronica’s are more of the sultry colors. I did not get all, though God knows how much I wanted to but these things are not cheap! Sigh. So I got a few things which I thought I needed and I could not live with. So let’s get started!!

They have two eye shadow palettes, I obviously got my hands on both! They are:

1. Betty’s – Caramel Sundae

2. Veronica’s – Spoiled Rich

Below is what the packaging looks like for both palettes. If you’re familiar with the Wonder Woman or the Hello Kitty eyeshadow palettes that MAC released a while back, this is similar except of the theme but still the same metal compact casings which I adore!

The had so many shades of lipsticks for both Veronica and Betty, but I only got three (2 from Veronica’s and 1 from Betty’s). I got none of the lip glosses cause I rarely use lip glosses nowadays.

My Make Up Collection & Storage! – PART 2

Standard

Hello!

This is the continuation for my make up collection post. I had to split it into two or else it would be a very loooooooong post. Now, let us move on.

Next to my vainity table (as you can see in my first picture in part 1), I have two shelves thats drilled to the wall. The one right next to the vainity is where I put all of my lip products and also my eye shadow palettes.


I store my lipsticks in these acrylic lipstick holders that I got for an affordable price. They had different sizes and different number of lipstick slots. In the pictures below, I will be showing you how they vary from each other.

This holds 24 lipsticks and it comes with a clear container that you can stack on eachother. I put all my lipbalms, lipglosses that are too short to be seen in my lipgloss holder, Anna Sui’s ring rouge in the container.

This is actually a candle holder. So when I was done with the candle, I cleaned the glass and used it to store all of my MAC’s lipglasses and plushglasses. They fit perfectly and it’s really nice that you can see through it to see the colors.

I dont know how to describe this buti it’s sorta like a moon shape. This holds 15 lipsticks.

As you can see, behind there’s a few slots where you can put extra lipsticks or skinny lipsticks that dont fit in the slot. Ive got my Anna Sui’s lip palette, my Holika Holika rose mirror, chapsticks and sample sized lipsticks.

Now this little thing holds 12 lipsticks. Ive got two of these just cause I wasnt sure if i needed anymore at that time, but in the end, i did need another one.

This is where I store my lipglosses. This container is actually a tv remote control holder/pen holder. I also stick the pink w brown polka ribbon around the container just so it does not look dull.

These are the palettes I have. I just place them upright next to the wall and the lipgloss container.

My vainity table has a slide mirror, and behind there are shelves where I can store my body mists, moisturizers and lotions and things like that so I really think thats cool.


In the cabinet, I just put all my make up bags and brush rolls inside. And at the top shelf, I have one of those acrylic containers but in a bigger size so that I can put all my tissue roll, nail polish remover, cuticle removers, extra brush cleanser and everything.

White container has my sample size of everything from different companies. The Coca Cola glass was a freebie from Mcds and I put my hair brushes inside. Now that thing on the right is a brochure holder that I got from a stationery store. It holds my face masks, and hair stuff perfectly.

So, that is it ladies! I hope this was helpful. I’m sorry I cant describe this better just cause, I feel, that most of these things shown are all straight forward. But if you have questions, feel free to comment down below. Thank you for reading! Talk to you all again soon!

My Make Up Collection & Storage! – PART 1

Standard

Hello dear readers!

Finallyyy!! I’ll be doing my make up collection post plus I’ll be giving you some make up storage tips. So lets just get on with it.

Just a disclaimer, I am not trying to brag about how much make up I have, I don’t think I have that many compared to the youtube gurus and bloggers I’ve seen, I’m simply doing this post just cause I love sharing new ideas on how I store my make up. And I know some readers that have reached out to me asked for a post like this, so to you girlies, who’ve asked, this is especially for you 🙂

The overview of my make up station

I store my brushes in clear glass vases. The beads inside the vases at the back are flower beads.

In this plastic container (where I used to store my earrings) I could fit my foundations, BB creams, face primers, brush cleansers and towel in. I just wrapped a pink ribbon with brown polka dots around the clear container to make it more interesting. (My cousin got me a pair of PJs when she got back from UK and it came with the ribbon so I kept it and reused it)

Top view

I will start with my pink counter. Here is where I mainly keep my make up. I bought this pink rack and the white clear plastic drawers separately. I was lucky that the drawers fit perfectly in the rack. Of course I need a lot of anti slip mats to be placed under the drawers so that it does not move when I pull the drawers out.

First rack on the right, it has two small drawers at the top and one long drawer at the bottom.

First drawer on the left is where I store all my face stuff; face powders, liquid highlighters, setting powder, powder foundation, bronzer and two kabuki brushes

In the second drawer on the right is where I place all my concealers and color correctors

In the drawer below, I have 4 little containers as you can see in the picture above. Now I got these little containers from Economy Mart; 3 for $1? I have my lipliners, eyelash curlers, mascaras and…

On the other two, I place my sharpeners, eye primers, paintpots, gel liners and liquid liners.

In the second rack I have..

In the top drawer, I have all my blushes. I also have two long containers where I store a my MAC, Nyx, Anna Sui and Benefit’s Box O’ Powders. Now that little container on the right I also got that from the Economy Mart, same price as Ive mentioned above. There I store all my random blushes. And in the little space I have Ive stored some of my high end blushes. Ive placed an anti slip mat underneath just so my things wont move around.

Here I have all my small palettes and in the small container on the right, I have all my fake lashes with lash adhesive.

The last rack on my right..

Now this, I wont show you each and every drawer just cause its not that interesting. But i’ll tell you what I have in each and every one of them.

1st drawer: All my cotton pads & hair bands to put my hair back doing my make up.

2nd drawer: Long container where I store all my eyeshadow singles and duos.

3rd drawer: All my plastic jars and sprays incase I need them for whatever reason.

4th drawer: All my Vaporubs and other medical creams.

Next rack on my left,

This rack is where I place all my earring. I have a post on how I store my earrings recently so check that out!

In the second rack I have all my perfumes..

And the last rack below, I store all my nail stuff.

An overview of all the nailpolishes that I have.

So that is all for my part 1 and stay tuned if you wanna see part 2!!

MAC PAINTPOTS

Standard

Hello all!

Today i’ll be talking about the infamous MAC paintpots. I just received these products about two days ago and i have tried them out. Ive heard so much about MAC’s paintpots. Gurus in youtube have been raving about these. They say these paintpots can be a good base for eyeshadow and also, they can just be worn by itself to give a pop of color to your eyes.

What MAC claims:

“A HIGHLY PIGMENTED EYE COLOUR THAT GOES ON CREAMY BUT DRIES TO AN INTENSE, VIBRANT FINISH. LONG-WEARING, COLOURFAST. CREATES SEAMLESS COVERAGE WITHOUT WEIGHT OR CAKING. BLENDS SMOOTHLY OVER THE LIDS. CREAM BASED, CAN BE MIXED WITH MAC SHADOWS AND LINERS.”

Currently, I only own three paintpots – PAINTERLY, RUBENESQUE & INDIANWOOD

PAINTERLY PAINTPOT

MAC describes Painterly as a “nude beige”. It is a “cream” finish. Now I like to use this as a base. This evens out any discoloration or veining on my lids.

 

A swatch of PAINTERLY PAINTPOT

RUBENESQUE PAINTPOT

Mac describes Rubenesque as “golden peach with gold pearl” and it’s a “frost” finish. I also use this as a base because it does not come out opaque.

A swatch of RUBENESQUE PAINTPOT

INDIANWOOD PAINTPOT

Mac describes INDIANWOOD as a”metallic antique bronze”. And it is a “frost” finish too. This color can be used as a base or by itself. It shows up nicely on my lids and can be a perfect color for a brown/bronzey smokey look.

A swatch of INDIANWOOD PAINTPOT

Overall, I like them. A girl should have one of these in their collection. It lasts long on the lids and as a base, it does make any eyeshadow look more vibrant. I recommend this product. I’m already planning to get some more for myself.

I hope this was helpful. I’ll talk to you all very soon. Thank you!

MAC HAUL

Standard

Hello my darlings!

I havent posted anything up for a while. Thats just cause ive been very busy with work.

Anyhoo, i just got a few things for my mom, my cousin and myself from MAC! And im so excited to show you girls what i got!

So an overview of everything, its not that many though..

20110517-104459.jpg

I got my mom a blush (Pinch o Peach), a lipstick (Pink Nouveau) and a gel liner (Blacktrack), also another Blacktrack for my cousin.

And.. Here are the things i got for myself!

20110517-104803.jpg

Here are the swatches. From L to R: PINCH O PEACH, DAME, BLUSHBABY, NYMPHETTE LIPGLASS

20110517-105106.jpg

Oh i almost forgot, this is a swatch for PINK NOUVEAU (this is my tube by the way) I didnt swatch this with my mom’s cause thatll be unfair for her. HAHA

20110517-105318.jpg

This is a bright fun pink lipstick thats suitable for all skin tones and its a satin finish. Satin finish can sometimes be drying so its good to wear a lipbalm underneath it.

And i dont have to tell you how blacktrack looks likes. Its just a black liner.

So.. That is all! I cant wait to try on the blushers. I am VERY excited! Ill do a review on them soon.

And also, im not sure if ive said this before but for the next post, i might do a haul plus review on the things i got from TRESEMME and some face products so watch out for that!

Until then ladies!
