Morphe 35P Palette Tutorial

I received this beautiful palette over the weekend and could not wait to get my hands on it and film a tutorial! The colors are beautiful and you can create a great smoky eye with some color which is my personal favorite.

Your can check out more about his palette and buy it here

These shadows are so pigmented that you barely have to tap your brush into them. You see spots in the video where I have to stop applying them because there is so much color on my lid and I wasn't expecting it!

Below is a picture of my first eye look with this palette. I focused the color on the outter corner and thought it came out well. Appropriate for a lot of occasions.

Watch the tutorial for yourself and let me know what you think!

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour | Tailored to Tease

I have recently fallen head over heels and am in LOVE! I've finally found the one...
...liquid lippie.

I am wearing the MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Tailored to Tease.

Those MAC kiosks in Macy's constantly pull me in. I'm not a huge MAC fan. Mostly because they switched from being cruelty free once Estee Lauder bought the brand. BOO HISS. However, sometimes I am weak and cave into the visuals. I also used to buy and still use MAC items from the past so it's hard to break the habit.

No one's perfect so stop throwing your stones while you're living in that glass house people!

While purchasing Give Me Sun, which is a darker powder usually used as a bronzer, the sales associate mentioned their new liquid lipcolours. Normally I would pass. Lipsticks aren't really my thing and matte liquid lips are always hit or miss. The formulas are here and there depending on the brand and actually even the color. Also, they had no nudes left. OF COURSE. This is always the case.

As I stood there and reviewed the other colors, the sales associate continued to tell me how amazingly creamy they were (this is not how I would describe liquid lip colors) and showed me the other associate who worked there's lips. She had on the bright red and it looked awesome. She proceeded to tell me she had the same coat on since 8am with no reapplication... and she had eaten lunch.... and it was 3pm when she was saying this.

: : Lightbulb moment : :

I then proceeded to pick Tailored to Tease which is a bright fuchsia. Again, normally not my thing but the associate was really loving that color so I decided to give it a whirl.

Thank the high heavens I tried this! This formula and color is now my new favorite in my lip collection. Really my only favorite besides Americano liquid lipstick by OFRA Cosmetics. It dries quickly and does not transfer at all. It also is so lightweight on the lips that you can't feel it's there. It's smooth and not choppy. Everything I want out of a lipstick, is in this formula.

The MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour is $20 and they are sold in stores, kiosks and online. They have some amazing color choices so I suggest checking it out for yourself.
