Barbados National Flag inspiration using MAC Hug Me

I was super excited since I was going to my long awaited vacation to Barbados. The national flag is mainly blue and yellow colours so while going through my closet I was reminded of a sleeveless dress I bought a long time ago that was mustard with a blue-ish appliqué to the front. In my eagerness to start using my recently purchased MAC , this is the look I came up with.

Since the dress is already so bright I just kept the face neutral. There is a hint of gold eyeshadow on the lids but the star of the face is the nude MAC Hug Me lipstick.


MAC Hug Me Lipstick

Besides being a gorgeous colour on its own, the texture of the lipstick is smooth and the shine is already there so no need to add a lipgloss on top of it, unless you want too. The only downside to this lippie is that you have to swipe a few times to get that colour but it does makes my lips feel like they are being pampered. I am really loving Hug Me!
So would you wear these colours together?

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
