MUA Pallette – Pretty Pastels Swatches

Hello Princesses all around the World.!!!
Here comes a post with swatchs from Mua’s Pallete, Pretty Pastels.
Mua pretty pastels pallete
I tried to do the best swatchs ever but it was hard. The colors are too light.
Although the pallete is called Pretty pastels, and would supossed to be matt (I thought) they are shimmery
Top line  (in daylight and indoors):

Bottom line:
To be honest, its not my favorite pallete. The ”shimmer” fact kind ruined my excitment. In the more darker colors, doesn’t seem so much, but it does in the lights.
Its a very spring/summer pallete and the quality is good, like all MUA palletes.
Kisses!

New Year’s beauty resolutions!

Ιts almost 2013, and if the end doesn’t come in 4 days (lol) I have to put some goals for the new Year. Some resolutions!

I am a beauty blogger, so I ll share with you some beauty resolutions, then!

-No more shampoos/conditioners/masks/bubble baths/body lotions and hair sprays!

I have to empty the 5 shampoos,3 conditioners, 3 masks,6 bubble baths, 5 hair sprays and over 10 body lotions I own, before buying a new one!

-No more nail polish! I threw around 30 two days ago, because I had to. Some of them were dry, and the rest had ”oil” in it, which means bacteria alert!I

have still around 50, so I must use them, or combine them instead of getting another one!

– Beauty routine! Do not forget to make a face mask twice per week, and to always use a moistorizing cream. And scrubbing!

– Water! Drink water! I rarely drink, cause I already hydrate myself with coffee, tea, etc. But I have to drink water!

-Never ever sleep with my make up on. I rarely do it nowdays, but I should never do it again!

-Do NOT buy useless stuff. Why to buy another black pencil when I have already 10, and they are good ones?

-Give/throw what I don’t use. Maybe a lipstick that its too bright for me, would be perfect for a friend!

-Last, to never buy another lipbalm just because it tastes wonderful! My lips are still chapped because of that!

Well, that’s my new Year’s resolutions!

What about yours? Beauty or not!

Love

ΜAC Hot tahiti Lipstick Swatch/Review

Hello  beauties!

It was about time to make a lipstick swatch and here I am , I ll do one from our loving Mac. Its called HOT TAHITI.

Its’a bit winterish for color, that’s why I was waiting for the period of year to come and make the swatch

Its one of my favorite colors atm, if not the most favorite.

Color is… I don’t know how to describe it. In other reviews online it was described as.. ” Soft Reddish Coral” ”A red with a tinge of orange and pink” ” berry/red/rose” , ” mauv-y red with hints of coral” . I think – suprizingly – everything fits, depends on the canvas you are working it. For example, in my deadly white hand it looks like this:

Where you can see the coraly/orangy touch. To my lips though, I d say is a light mauve-berry to wine.

Its kinda sheer, but leaves a lovely finish, and is of course, very moisturizing.

I wouldn’t say that is a MLBB color, its a bit more dark to fit that. But its an extremely wearable color.Suprizingly, in dark looks darker, so you can also wear it in night hours as well.

 

Its a very underrated color  and I really don’t see why ! I think that fits all the skin tones, and its a color that you could wear all the time .

Would you buy such color?

.

Lots of love
