NOTD: Essie Play Date

I got some new polishes in i haven't done a haul on it yet but here is what i put on today! essie play date with china glaze gold digger, i love the combo :)

Its more purple and less blue toned in person.

Mac haul

So i went out of town and went to the mac counter and got a few things in the mail... I haven't been interested in anything from them for about a year? and even then it was maybe a lipstick or an eye shadow. As you might be able to tell from that story i got a few things from the most recent MAC collection (Tres Cheek, Reel Sexy, and Extra Dimension) i got a lipstick in reel sexy, 2 blushes one in pink tea and the other is immortal flower, and a high lighter in superb. So lets see some pictures!

Reel Sexy

This lipstick in real life is a touch more pink/coral/pastel its sort of hard to capture it always pulls stronger orange. Its very creamy and very pigmented i love it alot more then i though i would! i would say its more orange and pigmented then say jazzed.

Left: Immortal flower.  Right: Pink tea.
I did a previous post on pink tea so in your interested in more info and pics click here.

Immortal flower
This is a peach with a touch on pink in pan bit on the skin its a bit brighter on me anyways but i am pretty fair, its does go on darker then in the pan. I'm going to have to use this one a couple times to see how i like it on me, as of not I'm unsure.


Top: light sheer swatch  Bottom: heaver swatch

When i first got this in the mail I thought it was going to be waaaayy to dark for a high light but i guess being that its so metallic you don't need a lot to get it to show up well so it works awesome!

Thanks so much for reading! next i think ill be posting a nail polish haul, I'm just waiting for one last order to come in... theres alot...

Mac's Pink Tea v Pink Cult

So today i got in the mail a package from MAC... i was suppose to be getting pink tea and immortal flower but alas immortal flower was sold out during my check out time and wasn't shipped to me :( oh well.
 So here are some pics!

Pink Tea

Pink Tea

this is it in about a medium swatch built up a little 

pink tea on top. pink cult on bottom 

pink cult left. pink tea right

I thought these two would be closer being that they are described on MAC's site sort of alike, but as you can see pink tea is more light, bright, and sheer where as pink cult is darker, more pigmented and more of a brown/gray undertone.

I really like both of them but for different things I am glad i picked it up! I hope i can pick up immortal flower tomorrow at the store. If you have any question or such let me know :)
