Happy MAC Monday, ladies! If you’ve been hanging around Fancieland since the beginning then you probably remember the days when I used to go stir crazy for MAC. I had to have every new lipstick in every new shade that would flatter me. Boy was that exhausting! I definitely don’t miss those crazy days of hunting down collections and lipsticks but part of me does miss the excitement that a new MAC lipstick would bring every time I popped the cap and smelled the sweet, warm vanilla scent. In an effort to hold on to that nostalgia I’ve put together a nice treat for you this MAC Monday. Starting with some coral lips for spring! 💋
I just love summer! The warm sun on your skin and long, flowing sun dresses dancing in the breeze. It’s just a beautiful vibe, man. One that I hate to see go. Don’t get me wrong – I love fall too. But it’s just something about those bright summer colors that really get me going.
It’s finally spring! I can’t think of a better way to bring in those April showers and May flowers than with some bright coral lips! The season is all about bright colors and coral is super on trend this year. It’s already become my new favorite color! There was no way I could kick off spring with just one coral lippie so I ran out and hauled more! I found three beautiful drugstore lipsticks that are perfect for spring! Check it out!
- Revlon Moon Drops Blase Apricot
- Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss #109
- Revlon Super Lustrous Siren
The moment I saw this lipstick I knew I was going to get it! It’s the perfect spring and summer color and the packaging is to die for! I couldn’t wait for MAC to finally release the Archie’s Girls collection just so I could get my hands on it. Betty Bright looks like a bright neon coral in the tube but applied it’s more of pinky coral color.
When I first got wind of the MAC Strength collection I was dead set on picking up Pink Pigeon, Strong Woman and Party Parrot. But after seeing some swatches turn up red I wasn’t too sure about Party Parrot anymore. Instead of lumping it in my online order the night the collection went live I decided to check it out for myself in person once it was released in stores. I couldn’t be happier that I picked it up because it has become my new favorite lipstick! The color is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
Last week, I hosted a giveaway for the gorgeous bright coral Natasha by Julep. I got this polish in my penny box and although I loved how nice it looked on my nails I wanted to do something nice for my readers and subbies! To select a winner I used a random generator at random.org. Today’s lucky gal is Dana! I will be contacting you soon for your information. If you happen to read this before I reach you, feel free to drop your information in the contact form in the menu above. As for my ladies who didn’t win, stay tuned! I have more giveaways coming soon! Thanks for participating and most importantly thank you ladies for reading. (:
Not too long ago, I spotted a Julep Maven ad that was too good to pass up! The ad was for an introductory Julep Maven box for just a penny. Included in this box was two beautiful polishes, toe separators and Julep’s own The Best Pedi Cream ever. I couldn’t wait to try the two beauties on and when I finally did it was instant love! Especially with this gorgeous fiery coral based polish called Natasha. The color is so vibrant and so pretty that I just had to share it with you guys. As much as it kills me to part with this lovely polish I have decided to give it away to one of my lucky readers! The giveaway kicks off today and ends next Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. Because I’m not too familiar with international shipping this giveaway is open only to US ladies.

I’ve been having so much going on lately that I’ve been slacking on writing posts but things are slowing down a bit and I’m totally getting back into the groove of things. This is pretty late but I wanted to share my faves with you guys anyway! I still haven’t been wearing much makeup but I managed to rack up a lot of faves this month anyway. Check it out!
Ok so a little while after I ordered my Z Palette I figured I had to get some pans asap to fill it up! My first stop? Makeup Mania of course! I’ve been reading reviews and looking up swatches for the super cheap yet super great La Femme rogue blush pans. I could finally get my hands on them and store them how I wanted to!
