Beauty: Mac Dupes!!!

20140122-201846.jpg

This post is about my latest makeup obsession….lipstick! It all started with my search to find the perfect red and the perfect bright pink for my skin tone. I would watch youtube videos and one color I saw all the guru’s using was Candy Yum Yum by MAC. Unfortunately, I wasn’t quite ready to spend that much money on lipstick. One day I will become a MAC girl and have PLENTY of MAC products but I’m new to the makeup game and personally I feel that it’s not the brand that guarantees a beautiful beat, it’s how you apply the products. Drugstore brands can give you the same effect as high end products if you apply them right. Once I learn the tips and tricks to master a flawless face, then I’ll move on to MAC.

In the meantime I’m all about dupes! I can’t afford MAC so i’ll take the next best thing. I found this picture on Instagram and I’m super excited to go out and buy them ALL!!! Lol, not at once but eventually they’ll all be mine! I already have one color on the list, and that’s Wet n’ Wild Sugar Plum Fairy. I got it this fall when I was looking for great vampy shades to wear during the season. Its a dupe for MAC Rebel. Another MAC product that I was DYING to get my hands on was the Nightmoth lipliner. It seemed like EVERYONE had it, and it looked great with all the red and plum shades. I finally found a dupe for it which I plan to purchase and thats the Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Vixen. Hopefully I can get my hands on all of these lippies-i’ll search high and low! Tell me what you think about cosmetic dupes!

Beauty: E.L.F. Cyber Monday Haul!

To start off my makeup journey, I took advantage of Cyber Monday 2013. One website that I was dying to purchase from was eyeslipsface.com or e.l.f. for short. E.L.F. is another “budget friendly” brand that I happen to love. You can find E.L.F. products at stores like Target, or even Dollar Tree. My first purchase from E.L.F. was their eyelid primer. I was beginning to experiment with eye makeup so most of my products were very low-end with little pigmentation. I wanted my eye-shadow to last longer but wasn’t ready to dish out the cash to buy “high-end” primers like the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I ran across the E.L.F. primer in a local dollar tree and made the purchase. I was in LOVE! It stopped my eye-shadow from creasing and helped lighter shades show up better. But that was just the beginning.

For their Cyber Monday Sale, E.L.F. had a 50% off sitewide sale with free shipping on orders over $35.

It’s all scheduled to arrived Wednesday and I cant wait to do a review on each item for you. I may be difficult to do an entire post on all these items without it being super lengthy but I’ll try to make it work. I am trying to get a camera for Christmas and I’m thinking about making YouTube videos of my own. But until then, definitely check out eyeslipsface.com. They are doing what they are calling the ” e.l.f. days of Xmas” and there are 5 days left! Hurry before the deals are gone!
