MAC Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish Review

MAC Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish

There was once a time when limited edition MAC products would fly off the shelves in the blink of an eye. Literally the second a limited edition collection went live half of it was out of stock before MAC could even send out an email or text message. Now a days, it seems that MAC has learned their lesson and upped their limited edition inventory. Or people just got tired of the rat race. Either way, it’s a great thing that limited edition MAC products remain in stock a lot longer now because everyone can get a chance to enjoy them. A few months ago, MAC whipped up the Future MAC Collection which featured funky shades and futuristic designs to help you channel your inner time warrior. The star of the show was the Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish with its out of this world orb-like design that houses 3 sparkling highlighters all in one sleek black compact.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette Swatches

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette

When Becca and Jaclyn Hill announced that they were releasing an entire collection based around her famous limited edition Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector they practically broke the internet. Everyone went nuts! I’m not gonna lie. I got a little excited myself because Champagne Glow is beautiful and Becca really knows how to whip up a perfect cheek palette. However, I kept telling myself that I didn’t need it because I’ve been buying a ton of highlighters lately and I already own the Champagne Glow Palette and Afterglow Palette from Becca’s holiday collection. But you know me. The more pictures and swatches I seen of the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette pushed me to want it more and more. It’s just looked so beautiful!

Well, Hello Smashbox!

Well, Hello Smashbox!

Don’t you just love trying out new brands? I do too! There are certain brands that’ll always be my go to for certain products like Too Faced for eyeshadow, Anastasia (or Becca) for highlighters and ColourPop for lipsticks. Every now and then, I like to branch out and see what other fish are in the sea. Just for a little more variety, you know? After months of playing and swatching Smashbox products here and there I finally got a chance to get my hands on a few products and I’m pretty happy that I gave them a chance.

Happy hump day! I hope you guys have been enjoying your week so far. If not, I’ve got the perfect pink pick me up to help you get through the rest of it. This week’s Pink Wednesday feature is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Gleam Glow Kit.

MAC Haul!

MAC Haul: Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish, Adobe Brick Blush, Dunes at Dusk Gleamtones Powder

Years ago, I used to be obsessed with MAC. I had to have a piece (or two or three) from every limited edition collection because MAC was the best of the best with the most beautiful lipsticks, eyeshadows and compacts I’d ever seen. Then I grew up. After years of racing to the MAC site and counter to get my hands on the latest shiny new collection I soon grew tired of the rat race. Makeup is supposed to be fun not stressful! It appears that MAC is beginning to learn their lesson with super limited edition collections because now they’re much easier to shop with plenty of product to go around for everybody. Finally!

Ulta Beauty Collection Cheek Haul

Ulta Beauty Collection Pink Diamond Illuminating Powder, Radiance Baked Bronzer, Highlight Sculpting Stick, Fame Blush, Flush Blush, Sunkissed Blush

There’s tons of good brands to discover in Ulta but one that’s often overlooked is Ulta’s own Beauty Collection. I’ve shopped at Ulta for years and never paid any attention to the Ulta Beauty Collection until I began working there. Huge mistake! After curiosity pulled me to swatch a few pretty things I quickly learned that there were some hidden gems in the Ulta Beauty Collection. Like the lipsticks, eyeliners and their cheek goodies too. Especially the cheek products. From blushes to highlighters, the Ulta Beauty Collection has a little something for everybody.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer, MAC Plum Princess, Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation, Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder, Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter, Makeup Revolution Matte Blush, Tarte Lights Camera Flashes Mascara, Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit

One of the many upsides to being a makeup blogger (and junkie) is that I get to try a lot of different new products quite often. Most times, I purchase them myself which makes my wallet a little sad but my face very happy when I pick products that turn out to be amazing. May was a super long month filled with a lot of sales and great collections that I needed in my life so I ended up hauling lots of new makeup that caught my eye. Was it a little expensive? Yes. Do I regret it? Nope! Most of the new goodies I picked up turned out to be some of the best products I’ve ever tried. In fact, a few of them ended up being in heavy rotation from the moment I picked them up. Score!

Love makeup but hate paying the big bucks for the good stuff? Then you need to check out Makeup Revolution at Ulta because their products are amazing quality at super affordable prices. With blushes and highlighters at just $6 and lipsticks and glosses at $3 it can be hard to believe that it’s all good quality. But trust me. Makeup Revolution is all good! I’ve been wearing my Golden Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter and Nude Matte Blush daily since I picked them up during the BOGO sale at Ulta and I couldn’t be more impressed with the quality of them. In fact, I love them so much that I doubled back and picked up a handful more Makeup Revolution while they were still on sale. There was no way I could resist grabbing more when the quality and the prices are this good. It’s only right!

This must be the year of amazing drugstore highlighters because I’ve been discovering some true gems these days. First, Wet n Wild shook up the makeup world with the new limited edition MegaGlo Highlighting Powders and now Makeup Revolution has earned a spot in my heart (and organizer) with the amazing Vivid Baked Highlighters. I finally decided to give the brand a try while everything was buy one, get one half off and scooped up the last Golden Lights Vivid Baked Highlighters. I’ve had plenty guests rave to me about it so I figured it would be a good time to snatch it up while it was so cheap.
