Haul: MAC & Smashbox

My boyfriend and I had to celebrate Christmas a little early this year because we weren't going to be seeing each other on Christmas (and for about 2 weeks after Christmas too :( ) so I'd like to show yall my make up related gifts!

He took me to MAC and let me pick out a couple things and then we headed out to Sephora so I could look there too!

I ended up getting MAC Gingerly blush. I was wanting a peachy kind of blush because I don't have one yet so this one really stood out to me. I'm kind of worried about using a MAC product on my face (other than eye make up) because the foundation I tried from them made me break out really bad. BUT! We'll see how this goes!

Gingerly is described on the MAC website as "Capri bronze (Sheertone)." While I can't really say much else about it right now because I only wore it for the first time today, I can say that it's very matte which is nice and a little bit goes a LONG way. When I asked my sister how it looked on me today she said "It's very natural but you have a very healthy glow." So that's nice, right!?

Of course, how can I get something from MAC without getting some eye shadows... lol After toiling over what colors I would get, I finally decided on a nice wearable gray and a fun warm/brown color.

To the left: "Print - Muted grey with shimmer (Satin)"
To the right: "Sable - Gold-plum w/bronze pearl (Velvet)"
As described on the MAC website.

I absolutely LOVE Sable. I would say it's king of purplie/pink/brown. It definitely has a sheen to it. I put it all over my lids today (and put a dark brown in the crease) and it looked really nice. It's a very unique color.

I haven't used Print yet, but it's so pretty! It's got the smallest little pieces of glitter/shimmer (whatever you wanna call it) and I think it'll make a really nice smokey eye. :)

Then, off to Sephora. I was looking to find a brown pencil liner that was soft like my MAC Eye Kohl (I LOVE IT) but I didn't necessarily want it to be SO smudgy. I searched all sorts of brands and I saw the Urban Decay 24/7 pencils (I've heard they were really good) but I didn't really like the color of brown they had. So finally, I went back to the Smashbox aisle (my love for Smashbox will never die! haha!) and I saw a box of eyeliners (a special for Christmas) with 5 different eyeliners for $32! NICE! Had to snap it up! It comes with a black, brown, silver, purple and green pencil. Nice to beef up the variety of liner colors I have too! I've heard some people say that the liners smear after only a few hours of use but I put on the brown liner about 10 hours ago and it's still nicely in place. :)

You can find the liners on here:

Basically, I'm a happy girl. :)

Merry Christmas to all of you!

FOTD: December 9, 2009

This is old. I always forget to put the pics up, or I get lazy, or I just don't take any. Haha! Anyway, this is a few weeks ago. It's pretty much my "normal" make up look, just tweaked a little. I usually do a brown smokey eye, but I had switched this to a gray/black one. I think it looks cute with the pink shirt. Also wearing pale pink lips as well! :)
