MAC Semi-Precious Review Round-up


MAC Semi-Precious Review Round-up

Here are links to all of the Semi-Precious reviews 🙂 I won’t be doing any comparisons or overall review/recommendations until I have the full collection reviewed and comparisons swatched. I did list extensive dupes for all products that have been reviewed so far, and if you are eager for comparisons, please consider dragging around products in The Swatch Gallery, because we really built it so that you could that any time you want and not have to wait for me! 🙂

So far, what’s caught your eye?  Loving or leaving?

When foundation isn’t working, I’ll try and using a tinted moisturizer to fix it – like I keep a lighter and darker tinted moisturizer (because, inevitably, most of us all have a few products that just don’t match that we forget to return!) and try to correct.  Sometimes if it’s a little light, I’ll use the right-colored powder to set and hope for the best.  If eye makeup isn’t working out, I try to apply mascara and see if that helps at all; if not, I just remove it and go makeup-free on the eyes (well, plus mascara!).  For lips, I’ll remove and redo.  If I’m rushed, I’ll just throw on a go-to gloss.

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #086

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

First, I’ll share mine!

Haul:  A bunch of products from Chanel’s fall collection

Weekend plans:  Hopefully catching up on many, many neglected things on my to-do list

Are you ready for fall makeup:  No, not at all; I really wish collections were a little more in step with actual seasons–sure, before it officially starts, but hey, summer just officially began.  I’d rather wait ’til August!

Keep adding your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! 🙂

This week’s Mellan photo…


It’s bat dog!  I posted a few quick videos of Mellan on my Tumblr, too 🙂
