MAC Stylish Me Blush.

Hello Beauties! Today I have a quick post of a new MAC blush, Stylish Me, released in the Summer Nudes and Metallics collection.

MAC Stylish Me Blush

Where to buy: This was a Pro Store/online only collection (it's still available to date on MAC's website)
Price: $21
Finish: Satin
Description: "Deep dirty mauve"


When I first saw the blush in person I thought it was a really nice blush, something different to add to all the bright colorful shades I have. Then I  swatched it and was like "woahhhh!". The blush is immensely pigmented and it has a nice sheen to it as well. Very pretty once applied to the cheeks. 

Did you pick of this blush or anything else from the Nudes and Metallics collection? Please share your haul in the comments below!

Thanks for viewing!

OCC Lip Tars + Swatches.

Hello Beauties! If you recall from my Top 12 of 2012 post I talked about a product that was not new but new to me, the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic Lip Tars. Ever since I tried one out I have been in love. I've acquired a few more shades since last year and I figured I share them. Enjoy!

Nylon - Almost fluorescent pink 
 Anime - Blue based fuchsia 
 Pretty Boy - Bright clean pink
(I know they all look the same but, trust me, they're slightly all different)


Nylon, Anime, Pretty Boy

Hoochie - Bright magenta
Belladonna (it's DC'ed I believe) - Blue based purple

Hoochie, Belladonna

Grandma - Bright coral
 Melange - Terracotta 

Grandma, Melange

Stalker - Blue based red
Vintage - Deep burgundy 


Stalker, Vintage

The pigmentation on these babies are insane. A very (I do mean very) little does a long way. 

I would recommend using a lip brush for precise application and maybe your finger to touch up during the day. Not many touchups are needed because once they set they are on there. I can get a good 6 hours from these. 

If you pay close attention longevity is something I like in in a lip product. Once it's there I want it to be there. Usually because I'm going to forget to reapply. 

Do you have any of these? Any other shades you would recommend? 

Thanks so much for reading!
