MAC Cosmetics Hello Kitty Product Packaging photos :) No stickers here! Boxes are decorated, as is the majority of the products themselves. The pigments, glitters, lashes, and glitter eyeliners do not have ay special Hello Kitty markings on them. Good news for you PRO members–you DO get your discount on these! The woman buying next to me squealed in delight when the cashier told her this! Shh, I didn’t really eavesdrop ;) Continue reading →

Lucky Tom Eyeshadow Palette (L to R)

MAC Hello Kitty Swatches!

If you followed me on Twitter, you might have read that it happened to me again — they gave me TWO Lucky Tom palettes instead of one Lucky Tom and one Too Dolly palette. They put one on hold for me, so I’ll be picking it up tomorrow. I’m SO SO SO sorry for not having it up tonight, but I hope you’ll sit tight and wait for it tomorrow and forgive me for it all. :)

*EDIT* So Too Dolly features 3 shadows I already own, so I swatched them. I’m still missing Too Dolly, but now it’s not *as* bad as missing four, right?

All’s Fair

Lipstick/lipglass swatches on lips for all of you!  I ask for your understanding in the neatness of application, as I do these quickly and inexpertly–the point being to show you the color on real lips.  Thanks! :) Continue reading →

OVERALL, I had relatively high expectations for Brunette, Blonde, Redhead that weren’t really met. I admit that I should have gone in with no expectations, but I couldn’t help myself; it seemed like neutrals, classy shades perfect for everyday wear would abound so it seemed I’d be in love with it all. I was disappointed in both the eyeshadows and the lipsticks, but I did like the mineralize skinfinishes and a few of the lipglasses.

The eyeshadows, on the whole, just weren’t impressive in pigmentation or texture–even some of the colors that looked promising didn’t quite swatch the way I’d have liked. The lipsticks were all sheer formulas/textures, so they didn’t work well on my lips (compared to creamier formulas). For those with less pigmented lips, they may find these a nice reprieve! Red Devil is one of the standout products from the launch, because it’s a richly pigmented coral-red shimmery gloss that can be worn alone it’s so color-rich.

Flip eyeshadow is the best bet out of the nine shadows, because the shade doesn’t quite exist in the permanent range and it has good texture and color pay off. Henna is gorgeous, but easily duped by Sumptuous Olive; and Femme-fi is a great eyeshadow but I have it from Neo Sci Fi (so it’s still good, but not new, y’know?).

Of the mineralize skinfinishes, I liked Blonde the best for its light pink coloring it gave me and the shimmer level. Brunette makes me wary, because I feel it will end up being too dark on my skin. Of course, you can use a light hand with it, but Redhead is quite similar in the tone (perhaps more copper than bronze) and lighter so I can just use that instead!

Temptalia Recommendations:

Must-haves: Red Devil, Flip, Henna (if you don’t own Sumptuous Olive), Femme-fi,165
Nice-to-haves: Strawberry Blonde, Quick Tease, Henna, Blonde
Skip: Most of the lipsticks, Live & Dye, Peroxide, Knight, Top Knot
