DupeAlert #1 : MAC Unlimited


I can't have enough pink/brown lipsticks. It's the perfect "my lips but better" color. I wanna share with you cheaper dupes of my fav MAC Unlimited prolongwear lipstick. On the swatch it looks slightly different but on the lips they look exactly the same! I just love finding dupes of the more expensive brands cause you can have the same color for a cheaper price! 




What do you guys think of these dupes? Tell me in the comments. :)

Xoxo,

MAC Heirloom Mix and Keepsakes Holiday Collection Swatches

I have always been excited over MAC's holiday collections cause they release a lot of palettes, kits, and minis for us to try different ones. So when I read about this collection at Temptalia's blog, I knew I had to order from the states cause over here in Saudi Arabia they release it 1 to 2 months late. If you read my previous blog post, you'll know that I only got 3 items from the collection cause I already own similar colors and dupes of the other items, and the other ones just didn't interest me. So here are the products that I got.

With this palette, I really tried my best to get good swatches. I scraped and even sprayed my arm with Fix plus to get a good color pay off but I just couldn't get a decent swatch cause they're too sheer. I noticed every time they come out with palettes, the colors and textures are not exact to the original single pots. I love the packaging of this palette but the swatches are just disappointing.

I love the texture and smell of cremesheen glasses. Unlike their lip glass, this isn't too sticky and they are a little bit bigger.

This pigment is so pretty! It looks like plum in the pan, but when swatted it's like mauve/brown I just can't explain it. 

I hope you find my swatches helpful and I love to hear from you guys on the comment section. :)

Nordstrom Makeup Haul and MAC Heirloom Mix Collection

I was excited when I saw a blog post of MAC's new holiday collection. I knew I had to buy from the US so it would be cheaper. I placed my order on Oct. 21st and just received them 2 days ago Nov. 2nd. If you didn't know, Nordstrom doesn't ship cosmetics internationally so I had to use my US address from Borderlinx as the shipping location. When I received the package it looked like this:


I already cut the tape cause I just couldn't wait to see what's inside! :) Oh the joy of opening packages!


Then I saw this. My items were unprotected and I saw some powder from the eyeshadow, so I knew something was broken. I wish Nordstrom placed some stuffing or some sort of paper inside to protect the items.


Here are the products that I got.

  • Beauty blender with the liquid cleanser
  • Clinique bottom lash mascara (my favorite cause it doesn't smudge and the small brush makes it easier to apply)
  • MAC smokey eyes palette (from their new holiday collection Keepsakes)
  • Donna Karan cashmere mist deo 
  • MAC lip glass in Seeking Adoration (from their new holiday collection Heirloom mix)
  • NAKED basics palette from Urban Decay
  • MAC pressed pigment in Modern Majesty (from their new holiday collection Heirloom mix)
  • MAC eyeshadow in Brown script
  • MAC liquid last black liner

And here are the samples that I've chosen. 


I first opened the NAKED basics palette. I knew the broken eyeshadow was from this palette cause when I took it out of the box the packaging was dusty. I was so nervous upon opening it I thought all the eyeshadows were shattered. Luckily it was only the color "Venus" and it was only a small chip. 


Next was from the MAC Heirloom Mix collection. I was so excited to get my hands on these cause the colors are just so pretty and the packaging is beautiful! I will post swatches in my next blog post.
