RiRi Heart's MAC Summer Collection Haul.

Hello Beauties! It's no secret to anyone who knows me I'm a huge Rihanna fan and a MAC lover so when I heard word of the two collaborating I was beyond happy. Now if you're familiar with the latest launch you know it was not as smooth as the 1st launch of RiRi Woo alone but I stuck it out will all my devices and got the things I wanted. Here's what I picked up...

The Lipsticks
RiRi Boy
RiRi Woo

RiRi Boy
"Matte Vivid Lavender"
Retro Matte finish - $15

RiRi Woo
"Matte Cool Red"
Retro Matte finish - $15

"Matte Berry"
Retro Matte finish - $15

Hibiscus Kiss Powder Blush Duo
"Cool coral blush and matte neutral bronze"

Barbados Girl Lustre Drops
"Rose gold bronzer"

I plan on writing up individual posts with thoughts and swatches on each product. Please be on the lookout. 

If you missed out and wanted to check out these products I believe each of these will be returning in the fall collection and RiRi Woo is still available to order (as of now) on the MAC website. It states "Ships soon". 

Thanks so much for viewing!

XOXO Brittany

Summer FOTD's x3.

Hell Beauties! I hope you are enjoying your Summer so far, I am but I'm starting to feel like it's flying by. Here is another "this week in makeup" post. Hope you enjoy!

I wanted something simple and colorful all at once, this was the result. 
I used shades from a no name palette on top of MAC's Fascinating Eye Kohl
OCC's Grandma Liptar

Dark blue smokey eye using Sleek's Bad Girl palette//Stila Turquoise Smudge Stick (waterline)//MAC Razzledazzler lipstick

Another bright look:
Inglot 370, MAC Sunny Spot, Inglot 372, Inglot 388, MAC Ablaze on the lower lash line
MAC Tarte and Trendy Lipstick

This was like the easiest look to do UD Buck in the crease, Naked on the brow bone, Faint on the lid and Half Baked for the inner corner
MAC Sounds Like Noise lipstick

Gold and purple look with Ablaze eye shadow on the crease (I'm loving that shadow)
MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick//Over Indulgence Cremesheen glass

Please let me know which one was your favorite? 

Thanks for viewing!

Favorite Highlighters.

Hello Beauties! Todays post features a few of my favorite highlighters I've been lovely lately. I feel like I have quite a few more but did not want to overload you all with shine. LOL

MAC Extra Dimension Skin Finishes in Glorify and Double Definition
I love all 6 of these but currently these are my 2 most used. 
MAC should make these part of the permanent line.

Hard Candy's Tiki Bronzer
I LOVE this. I'm not sure why they call it a bronzer but this is a amazing.
It gives the prettiest golden glow to the skin.

MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder
This gives a nice rosy sheen to the cheeks

Maybelline Dream Sun Bronze Face Illuminator
This is LE but I know it's still available this Summer
If you can get your hands on it I say grab it
I love the glow this gives

MAC Golden Bronze Iridescent Power
This is my 1st highlighter and it's still my favorite

MAC Naked Dark and Tan pigments
Naked Dark pigment is my new favorite brow bone highlight
Tan Pigment is perfect for highlighting the eyes or the face

What are some of your go-to products for that Summertime glow?

Thanks for reading!

I used Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color Just Peachy and MAC Kissable Lip Colour in So Vain

MAC Neo Orange Pigment
Day 2 off running late
I applied MAC's Sushi Kiss lipstick and Richer, Lusher cremesheen glass 
You can see it here

Product Rave: Lime Crime Velvetines.

Hello Beauties! I can't even find the words to explain how much I really love this product. It's really like magical amazement made with unicorn sweat or something, I don't know. I love everything about these, the texture, the finish, the longevity, I even love the smell.

Before I completely stop making any sense on to the photos...

Lime Crime Velvetines

Suedeberry "Warm, vibrant strawberry-red"
Red Velvet "Rich, velvety red. 'Her lips were like a red rose'..."

Description: "Liquid lipstick that goes on like a gloss and dries to a matte, touch-proof finish." 
Price: $16.99
Where to buy: Lime Crime website 


Suedeberry, Red Velvet


Red Velvet

They have a hard time keeping these products in stock so if you have the chance to pick them up I say get them. Especially if you like long lasting matte red lips. 

Please leave any thoughts or questions in the comments below.

Thank for reading!

MAC All About Orange Haul.

Hello Beauties. This post features the few items I picked up from the All About Orange Collection.

Tarte and Trendy 
"Bright neutral orange cream"
Lustre finish

Sushi Kiss
"Midtonal coral"
Satin finish

Honey Jasmine Blush
"Soft warm coral"
Satin finish


Sushi Kiss, Tarte and Trendy, Honey Jasmine blush

The lipsticks sold out really fast on the MAC website, as they usually do, but I believe Nordstrom has them available for backorder purchase. Also check your local store/counter. The local one here still had everything in stock this past weekend. 

I love both lipsticks! I was hesitant to get Sushi Kiss but it turned out to be my favorite and of course I love a good orangey/coral blush.

Did you pick of anything from this collection?

Thanks for viewing!

Summer FOTD's 2013.

Hello Beauties! Last year I did similar posts and I wanted to start doing these again (it's my lazy way of doing but not doing "Face of the Day" posts). I'll start by stating this year (like I did last) I know it's technically not Summer but my Summer starts in May LOL. Hope you enjoy!

MAC Spoiled Rich Quad + Indian Ink 
NYX Buttery Nude Xtreme lip cream

"Bright on Bright"
Some of my latest favorite shadows: MAC Parrot (lid), Farasha (crease)

"Lazy Daze" 
This is my "school" makeup but I also wear it when I'm heading out & don't feel like doing much else
NYX Shocking Pink lipstick//If you're wondering about that glow it's from the new Maybelline illuminator

"Bad Hair Day"
This one of my favorite neutral eye combos: MAC Blonde's Gold Pigment, Saddle and Soft Brown in the crease. Really quick and easy.
I'm also back in love with MAC's Refine Golden bronzer//Lady Danger on the lips

"Naked Sundays"
I still use my UD Naked palette on Sundays. I also use the Naked Basics palette along with it.
I love how it gives the option of matte colors.
NYX Bloody Mary lipstick//Cargo Laguna Blush
