Mac Reel Sexy, In Extra Dimension, Tres Cheeks Haul & Swatches

Thursday, March 29, 2012

MAC has 3 new collections all set to launch 4/5. I'm a Mac Pro member and had received an email this past weekend indicating that the collections were available for me to purchase on their online site. I browsed the web for swatches, but really didn't come up with much. At that point I decided to only order the items that I knew I definitely wanted. I ordered 1 highlighter from the In Extra Dimension collection, and passed on everything else. I got all of the blushes from Tres Cheeks except for 2, Pink Tea, and Peony Petal. And lastly, I got 3 lipsticks, 2 Cremesheen glasses, and 1 blush from the Reel Sexy collection. Read on for mini review and swatches...

Mattese Elite Lipstick Swatches

Naked, First Timer, Bi, Ecstasy, Happy Ending, Swinger, Promiscuous, Provacative
Naked, First Timer, Bi, Ecstasy, Happy Ending, Swinger, Promiscuous, Provocative
MAC lipstick used for size comparison
MAC's packaging is bigger, but both actually come with the same amount of product (3g)

I purchased these lipsticks from a recent Hautelook sale. I had done tremendous searching for swatches online and ending coming up with 1, maybe 2 of the shades that were on sale. But at a discounted price of only $4.00 per lipstick, compared to the original price of $10.00 sold at Ricky's NYC, I figured I couldn't go wrong. And I am super pleased to say that I was right! These lipsticks are super pigmented! Comparable to many high end lipsticks that I own. There are about 4 more shades from this line that I plan on picking up,  as well as trying a few more of their products from their makeup line.

Have you tried any products by Mattese Elite?

Outfit of The Night

  • French Connection Jag Stripe Dress
  • Sam Edelman Lorissa Peep Toe Pumps
  • Express Black Clutch

My husband and I went out with his sister, my sister in law, to celebrate her birthday this past weekend.  Got to wear a couple of pieces that I purchased from a few recent hauls... I had left my camera home, so I had to snap a shot with my iPhone 4s. We had a great time that night!

Hautelook... French Connection Edition

 Frech Connection Stretch Cap sleeve Tops in Black/Cream & Cobalt/Black

FC Jag Stripe Dress in Multi-Utility Blue & Stretch Stripe Cap sleeve Dress in Navy/Love Red

Just a few pieces that I ordered from a recent Hautelook sale. I own a few French Connection dresses and I love them all. So whenever they have any sort of sale for this brand I always manage to order a couple. Majority of the time they sell out super quick, but I got lucky being able to get both shirts and dresses in my size.

Betsey Johnson Sandals & Clutch

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

On a recent visit to Tanger Outlets Deer Park, I decided to stop in Betsey Johnson to check out a few things. I love the gladiator look of the shoes, and was looking for a pair such as these, so I had to have them! And of course I couldn't resist this beautiful clutch... It's purple, which is my favorite color, and I just love that its shaped into a bow. Super funky! Came with a detachable strap as well, so it's able to be worn a couple of ways. I was happy I snagged these two at Outlet prices :)

Do you own any of Betsey Johnson pieces?

MAC Chenman Love and Water Part 2

I had made a few purchases from this collection already see post, but I had passed on these items  in particular. After almost 2 weeks I decided to purchase them only to see they were sold out everywhere. I ennded up calling MAC customer service, and they told me they were in fact in stock even though the site indicated otherwise. Swatches, along with comparison swatches are below...

 Budding Love l/s, Budding Love l/g, Force of Love l/g

Budding Love, Mac Viva Glam Gaga(1), Mac Angel, Mac Lavender Whip

Were you able to pick up Budding Love lipstick?

Sam Edelman "Lorissa" Peep Toe Pumps

Pink Suede

I came across these shoes on Bloomingdales  website. I was undecided on which color to get. I posted both choices on Facebook, and Instagram to get feedback on which ones to go with. After a good amount of responses, I ended up going with both... And i'm so glad I did! I love these shoes :)

Which color do you prefer??
