First Haul of the New Year


So, how was everybody's new year? I was really sick :( To be honest, I'm still a little sick but I plan on uploading a new video today. I though I'd share some swatches of items I purchased from some of the new collection that came out as well as some Make Up Forever stuff.

Something New compared to NARS Schiap
 The two colours of Something New, by MAC, and Schiap, by Nars, are very similar however Schiap tends to be a little bit more opaque and is more matte. I don't think you really need both of them, however if you were eying NARS Schiap but was stumped by the $30 price tag, then definitely gives Something New a try.

MAC Kissable Lip Colour in Scandalicious

MAC Kissable Lip Colour in Super
These kissable lip colours are surprisingly opaque, moist and non-sticky. They have a really nice texture and feel great on the lips. I think I am going to pick up two more of these lip colours before they are sold out. They are basically a liquid lipstick with a more glossier finish. It sort of reminds of me Chanel's Laques but the latter is more opaque, thick and luxurious feeling. Nevertheless, MAC did a great job with these products and should be seriously considered.

MAC Cream Colour Base in Virgin Isle
Clock Wise - MUFE Pure Pigment in 14 and Glitter in 10 and 3

The Makeup Forever glitters were actually really affordable at $13 CDN at Sephora. Number 10 is a black and silver glitter whereas number 3 is more of a white with mutli-dimensional glitters. Looks almost gold which was what I wanted. The pure pigment is more of a red violet, very similar to MAC's Vibrant Grape. I love these Pure Pigments by Makeup Forever because they are completely matte and very very pigmented.

Anyways guys, I hope you enjoyed my post :D
