To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Product Packaging: The lipglass come in a hard plastic tube with black screw type cover with the standard doe foot applicator wand. The tube contains 4.8g of product. It very similar in size and packaging to the NYX xtreme lip creams.

Product Colours: Russian Red is a opaque blue based red so it makes your teeth appear whiter. However if you use just a tiny amount and blend it over the entire lips it can look sheerer. Overall this colour is really opaque and can give you the intense colour of a lipstick. Russian Red can also be found as a MAC lipstick and nail polish in the MAC fashion sets. But not to worry since both lipglass and lipstick are part of MAC's permanent line so you can get them anytime.

Product Performance: When I think lipglass, I think of a thicker type lipgloss and that's exactly how lipglasses are. It is also quite sticky so you have to be careful not to get you hair in it which happened to me during my swatching! For me the product wore for between 3-4 hours. Once you eat or drink the colour comes off but the lipglass definitely holds on more to your lips than a regular lipgloss.

Product Flexibility: If you're are lipgloss loving girl like myself give this one a shot since it has the colour opacity of a lipstick, just in a lipgloss form. If you bold enough try wearing this colour to the office for a casual friday work look. It looks great with a simple cat eye!

Product Availability & Price: At MAC counters where-ever they maybe. I got mine in West Mall for $130TT.

Happy Russian Red!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
