Ice Parading into my heart

Hello beauties! Here is part duece of my recent MAC haul. I really wanted to get the Iced Delights Lip Bag in Sultry, but one of the makeup artists showed me the face kits. There are two. Each one comes with a snowglobe compact, 3 travel brushes, a lipstick, a lipgloss and a makeup bag. It is a very good deal. I bought the Fabulously Festive Face Kit in wintercool. I am not sure yet if I will use the brushes (129SE, 266SE, 275SE), but I will be using the makeup products.

Here are pictures:

The beautiful box.

 The goodies inside.


Snowglobe compact with Phloof, Brun, Quarry, Dance in the Dark eyeshadows and Mocha blush.

 Hot Gossip lipstick.

Swatches of Mocha, Phloof, Brun, Quarry, Dance in the Dark, Hot Gossip, Emancipation lipgloss.

I wasn't sure about the lipstick at first, but it's beautiful with the lipgloss layered on top. I think MAC did a great job with this collection. I might still be going back to pick up some more. Should I? I suppose if I can afford to and if what I want is still in stock!

Glitter and Ice is Oh So Nice

I have read that every year MAC comes out with a huge holiday collection.This is really my first year paying attention, and I'm so glad! This year's collection is huge. I mean, MAC comes out with about a hundred collections throughout the year. This one is definately an eye catcher. There are several parts to the collection itself. I bought from Glitter and Ice and Ice Parade.

I went into MAC yesterday when the collection officially launched in stores. I usually go into MAC with few items in mind and leave with just what's on my list. Not this time. I even said to the lady ringing up my products,"Damn you MAC!".

All of the dazzleglasses were so shimmery. I finally decided on She Zam. After swatching the mineralized eyeshadows I decided on Winterized. At first I couldn't decide on if I wanted a beauty powder, but was sold on the white packaging and got How Beautiful to use as a highlight.

The bag of goodies I got! The packaging is so pretty, isn't it?

I wanted to get so many more items. The whole collection is gorgeous. Even though is seems half of the collection is repremotes, the 8 pan eyeshadows and face kits come with snowglobe compacts that make it so much easier to carry some of your favorites along with you.  What are you hauling from the MAC holiday collection?

You're Lookin at a Winner!

Hello beauties! It seems I have neglected my blog. A whole month long! I truly have been thinking about blogging every weekend. My main goal was to take quality pictures of all the products I have received and purchased. I have tried and tried, but have failed at the quality I was aiming for. But it's all good. I have decided to post the pictures I have taken anyways. I like quality, but I also want to post more.

I also have been busy on the weekends. It seems my hubby and I have been having so much fun! I went to my first tailgating party for the UT Longhorns and just last weekend rode on a party bus with 18 other people to Dallas to attend a Dallas Cowboys game. That was an epic trip.  Being inside that stadium seemed so surreal! And next weekend I turn 30 and have been planning a huge party to celebrate. Time is passing so fast!

Now, onto some pictures!

I entered a giveaway a little while hosted by Dawn for her 200 follower givewaway. She has amazing makeup looks and you should go check out her blog! She shipped everything to me and I received my goodies super quick! Below are pictures of what I won!

She wrapped everything up very well with black tissue and bubble wrap and sent the package in a black box, which I loved!

Ardell fashion lashes, MAC eyeshadows in Mythical and Parisian Skies, EOS lipbalm.

Swatches of the MAC products.

Last weekend I wore Mythical with some NYX glitter on top. It was a perfect pair! And I plan on wearing the lashes at my 30th birthday bash!

Another product included with this prize package was a Wet N Wild eyeshadow palette in Comfort Zone. I will make a separate post to include swatches. The Wet N Wild eyeshadows are amazing!

I was so excited to have won this prize! Thank you again Dawn!
