    I am totally gonna dive in on the grey quad, as you all know I can’t resist quads.   I think the fragrence I am totally gonna pass on as I don’t think there is a way to make patchouli smell clean.  As in, people think, man I don’t think she showered today.  And I definitely don’t want folks whispering that behind my back.
    MAC has tons coming out this Fall and it has me completely convinced that the reason is to bombard us with so many pretty things that our heads spin and we dont realize that we just spent the rent money on lipstick and eyeshadow.  We go, oh but it has sparkles in it!!  🙂
    EDIT***
    I have found a review and a more in depth description of the fragrance – lets see if it holds true:
    M.A.C Asphalt Flower Potion
    Price: $25 for 3 vials
    Description: Cast a spell with M.A.C Asphalt Flower Potion. Inside this sleek vial is a hypnotic blend of black violets, night-blooming jasmine, purple lilacs, raspberries and dense woody notes. These essences endure long into the night because of the high concentration of oils and absence of alcohol.

    This is such a HOT LOOK! Here are the instructions below:

    How To: Step 1) Apply

    How To:

    Step 1) Apply primer in a medium shade over eyelids and brow bone to clarify skin texture and tone with soft, fluffy brush: Prep+Prime Eye /
    252 Large Shader Brush

    Step 2) Begin by blending a mid-toned matte taupe/sepia eye shadow through the crease of the eye. Starting on the outer corner of the eyes and on the lower lash line, build the eye shadow gradually, defining the contour of the eyes with a light touch. This will enhance the natural shape of the eye with a subtle effect: Eye Shadow – Texture / 217 Blending Brush

    Step 3) Next, begin highlighting eyelids with a brighter tone of eye shadow. This could be opalescent or matte in texture. Use a brush that has a smaller, dense head. This will provide the necessary control when working with textures that shimmer especially: Eye Shadow – All That Glitters / 272 Small Angled Shader

    Step 4) Apply the highlighting eye shadow with a stronger intensity on the inner corner of eyelids, this will open up eyes without having to use much product: Eye Shadow – All That Glitters / 272 Small Angled Shader

    Step 5) Highlights may be add under brows, but should be kept matte, with little shine for the most natural appearance: Prep+Prime Eye / 239 Eye Shading Brush

    Step 6) Curl lashes to open up the eyes: Lash Curler

    Step 7) Apply one or two coats of mascara. The sculpted eye is beautiful in it’s simplicity, but paying close attention to details…such as lashes and brows, is imperative for a finished, polished effect: Plush Lash Mascara – Plushblack

    Step 8) Open up eyes further and make the eyes look more rounded by highlighting the lower lash line with a liner pencil: Eye Kohl – Powersurge

    Step 9) Groom brows with a brow pencil to fill in gaps: Eye Brows – Lingering

    Step 10) Apply brow gel to keep brow hairs in place and to create a polished look: Brow Set – Clear

    Step 11) Warm up the crease to add intensity by using a warmer eye shadow: Eye Shadow – Embark / 224 Tapered Blending Brush

    When applying makeup, not only is it important to do a look that’s flattering, you should also follow the styles and trends of the season.

    In this post, I’m going to let you in on all of the secrets to following the latest makeup trends.


    Satin-textured skin is big right now. It will continue to be a major influence in the fall/winter season, sometimes including even bolder touches of shine to highlight parts of the face.

    Another trend we’ve been seeing this season is contrasting warm and cool tones. The eye has also been fairly defined with intensely pigmented shadows.

    Tricks for achieving impeccable makeup:


    When applying shimmery products, whether powders or creams, it’s important to carefully control where the product falls so it doesn’t end up in areas such as under the eyes or areas with imperfections, which will be more obvious when shiny.


    Remember that not all skin types are suited to a satin texture. If imperfections are present, choose a foundation with more coverage and a matte finish, which will be much more flattering.


    Make the eyes pop by playing with the contrast and balance of warm and cool colors that help each other stand out. But be very careful when blending these colors. Remember that not all colors look good when blended together, which is why you should use a color in between the two of them that can be blended with both. Another trick you can use is to apply them right next to each other without blending.


    A trendy makeup look, step-by-step:


    Apply moisturizer over clean skin for a smooth, uniform base.

    Apply concealer to undereye area and to any other imperfections that may be seen. Blend well to integrate with the skin.


    Use a liquid foundation in the same shade as the skin tone. To achieve a natural effect, apply with a synthetic bristle brush. If needed, use a makeup sponge to help blend the foundation.


    Once you’ve applied the foundation, mattify the entire face with the mineral powder using a large brush. That way the skin will be matte, but still maintain its natural shine.


    On the eyes, start by applying the base shadow, which in this case can also be used as a highlighter. Apply to the arch of the eyebrow to illuminate the lid and on other high points on the face.


    Apply the medium shadow on the lid, or if you choose, you can do a combination of two shadows.

    Now intensify the look with pencil in the same color as the shadow, but a deeper shade. If you prefer, you can also use black pencil, shadow, or eyeliner to line the eyes. Remember to focus on the roots of the eyelashes, both inside and outside the eye.





    So just for yall I have procured the first look at the upcoming Makeup Art Cosmetics collection.  Here are multiple swatches for your viewing pleasure.  Please leave comments as to what you HAVE to get.  I am really loving quite a few things in this line.  I always like to get the quads as long as they dont have more than one thing I already have.  Not only do they have amazing shadows that are mostly LE, they are quite a bargain!  Oh and the Photorealism quad is caaaaallling my name

    What do you think about the new stuff and the repremotes?

    I am really loving the pearlglide and smoke and diamonds eyeshadow.  I didn’t have a chance to pick up these when they were out before so I am excited to get my mitts on these babies.  There is a natural weakness inside me when it comes to metallic shadows.  So pretty.
