First Quarter Favourites


Technical difficulties have kept us off of YouTube for a hot minute but we did manage to film a First Quarter Favourites for you recently. As soon as it's out of post production I'll insert it here for you but in the interim here's the roundup. Where I have individual reviews please click the link to see more information.
As seen in Inyouvations, Sheraton (435-4258)
  • M.A.C Satin Blush 'Ripe For Love'. (limited edition, sorry!) It's a 'peachy-pink' with a nice sheen.
  • a love gift Heidi got me on her trip to Austria. It's a potted lip balm with the cutest packaging ever and a handy mirror.
  • Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder. This is a silica powder which I use to set under eye concealer or to mattify shiny lipsticks. You only need a little to get the job done.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"

M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
