MAC Posey Cremeblend Blush Review

Hey guys!
I recently went to a CCO (Cosmetics Company Outlet) in Houston and picked up a cream blush from MAC for $13. I have never tried a MAC cream blush so I thought I'd give it a go.

The shade I bought is Posey. This is a warm peach color. There is no shimmer in it so it's completely matte. This blush is long wearing and also blends like a dream! 

This picture makes it look more bright pink than what it really is. Think peach not hot pink. 

This blush is so soft and creamy. A little goes a loooong way too so you have to be careful and not get carried away with how much you apply.

Here is a swatch of the blush blended and unblended. 

Here is what it looks like on. It blends so smoothly! I applied it with a duo fiber stippling brush and blended it out.

I would definitely recommend these if you are in the market for a cream blush. This blush is very pretty, easy to work with and lasts a long time. I think this would be great to use during the Spring and Summer months.

Have you tried any MAC Cremeblend blushes? What colors are your favorites?

Sigma Brush Haul

Hey guys!
As a Christmas gift to myself, I decided I would order some Sigma brushes. I have wanted some Sigma brushes for years now but never broke down and bought some until now. I have always heard nothing but good reviews about them so why not? I ordered the Sigmax line of brushes and several individual brushes that I knew I would use frequently. So without further ado, let's take a look at what I purchased. 

This is how the box came in the mail and how the brushes were packed.

It came with a note that explained how to clean your brushes. 

Here is an overview picture of everything that was in the box. With my brushes, I also received three pamphlets that explained the details of each brush and how they can be used. In addition, I received a free single eyeshadow. 

Here you will see that the brushes came wrapped in plastic and a few of the brushes came with brush guards. 

This is the free eyeshadow I received in the shade Shine.

This eyeshadow is AMAZING! It is very, very, very pigmented and this eyeshadow alone has made me consider buying the palettes from Sigma to give them a go. I love this color. It's a super dark black with silver glitters in it. It also glides on like a charm. I barely had to touch the shadow for it to swatch like this on my hand. 

In this picture, you can see how tightly packed the bristles are in these brushes. The second on the left looks slightly used because it was. I couldn't resist feeling it on my face! lol Sorry.

These are the face brushes from the Synthetic Essential Kit.

These are the "babies" of the Sigmax Kabukis above. This is the "precision" part of the set.

These are the precision brushes from the Synthetic Essential Kit.

From top to bottom: Pencil E30, Short Shader E20, Eye Shading E55, Blending E25, Tapered Blending E35, Flat Definer E15
From top to bottom: Tapered Highlighter F35, Small Duo Fiber F55, and Small Contour F05.

That's it! Let me know if you have any Sigma brushes and what brushes from their line you recommend. Also, if you have tried their eyeshadow palettes, what are your thoughts? Is it worth it to you?

Spring 2013 Trends

Spring 2013

Here are a few looks that will be trending this spring. I've seen many forms of these trends in stores such as Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, H&M, New York New York, and other similar stores. I love these looks. It seems sea foam green/mint is making a big comeback this year, as well as pieces that have intricate details like cut outs, lace, and beading. 

What trends are you looking forward to this Spring?

Half Shaved Head?

Hey guys!
Today I wanted to weigh in on your thoughts about the "Half Shaved Head" trend. This trend seems to be getting more and more popular with celebs and I wanted to see what you guys think. Below are pics of Ke$ha, Rihanna, Cher Lloyd, and Carmen Electra with the new hairstyle.

All pictures are from Google 
I personally wish I had the balls to do it but being in the teaching field, I don't think it would be very appropriate. lol Can you imagine your teacher walking into the classroom with hair like this?? That'd be pretty bad ass. hahaha 

*I wonder what it would look like after it began to grow out  o_0

Let me know what you think. 

Would you ever consider shaving half your head??

Lost Post: Teal Eyes

Hey guys!
I few of you wanted to see this post, so here it is!
For this look I used my BH cosmetics palette. I took a teal color all over the lid and the smoked it out with a black shadow in the crease and outer corner. Lastly, I highlighted with a skin tone color under the brow and in the inner corner. I felt like wearing some color this day because I've gotten into a rut when it comes to wearing my beloved neutral eyeshadows. I hope you like it! :)
