Do you consider yourself a makeup collector? Sure you use some of what you buy, but do you often buy just to have it in your “collection”? Do you consider what you have going an actual collection, similar to someone’s stamp collection?

What body products do you use regularly? Do you have a favorite body cream/lotion? A fan of sunless tanner? What makes your body bangin’?

I think I have a zillion and one body creams/lotions in my cabinets, so I just pull them out at random. I use Lush’s shower gel or Philosophy’s shower gel. I have to say… the body doesn’t get much else, LOL.

Are you excited for Fashion Week? Fashion Week has been gearing up, and it is really about to go into full swing in the next day or two. Do you keep up? Do you live for this time of the year or are you completely bored with it?

I am, but you should all know why! :)

Is the red lip not a classic choice for Valentine’s Day? I mean, the day is themed with pink and red, so it seems only fitting, right? This post is full of some of my favorite MAC red glosses/lipsticks that I thought I’d share with you! Each product is worn alone, when typically I would wear a lipstick and a gloss together (I rarely wear either by itself!). Unfortunately, several of these are limited edition, which means you may be updating your wish list over at MakeUpAlley soon! I love Check, Please lipglass for its really, really deep blood red color and super glossy finish. Perpetuate prolongwear is my choice for a kiss-proof red (and while it may not be make-out proof, it gets through without too much damage), and it is also a very nice deep red that isn’t too over the top or bright.

I hope this post shows how versatile reds can be (and these are just some of the ones that MAC offers), and even if you haven’t found your shade yet, keep looking and you’re bound to find one that suits you well!

Lip swatches include: Check, Please lipglass (pictured above; LE from Nordstrom 1+ year ago); Red Romp lipglass (Antiquitease); Witty lipglass (Stylistics); Classic Dame mattene (Mattenes); Stylistics lipstick (Stylistics), Rockocco lipstick (Rockocco); Russian Red lipstick (permanent!); and Perpetuate prolongwear (not sure of status, check your store). Now… Continue reading →

What do the men folk in your life think of your makeup? Who’s all for it? Do they all love it or hate it? Do you often hear that they like you without it better?

My boyfriend has grown to appreciate makeup, probably because he hears about it nonstop these days. He does like me au natural, but he compliments me from time to time even when it’s obvious I’m wearing makeup! My dad probably hates it, but he hates all makeup and perfume and essentially anything in the beauty industry beyond soap!
