Collective haul - Mac & more...

Sorry about being M.I.A. lately. It's just life sometimes gets in the way. It been super stressful lately and I rarely have time to log on and stuff. Also I'm still doing project 10 pan, but when I'm stressed..... I buy stuff. So this is some stuff that i picked up on my travels lately.

The lipstick is from a swap! I traded my SIB, 4x (maximum) used Blankety for her "un-boxed", almost half used Ahoy, There! :( :( :( I have the worst luck w/swapping! But, that another story.......

First off, I found this Christian Dior brush in a Shiseido on Sunday. And let me tell you, this brush is AWESOME! By far my most soft and high quality! I have a mixture of brushes ranging from Mac (of course) to Elf. But, this brush blows them all away. I'm kicking myself for not getting the large blush brush! And the price was awesome! They're having a 50% on all CD products! I'm gonna try to go this wknd, hopefully the sale is still going on!

I also started my first Mac quad and to be honest... i hate it. I'm not really digging "pan" form. I much prefer the original. Yes, the price is better and it's much more convienient.
I also got 1 blush and 1 highlight powder. And let me tell you... i luvv them! I usually never buy Mac "face" products cause my skin tends to react. But, the blush is beautiful... the color is outstanding! I have nothing like it! My Nars blushes are gonna be jealous cause it may be my new fav!!!
I think ya'll had enough of me blabbing! Till next time my lovlies :)

Thank you to the ever so lovely Stefanie for tagging me.

+Confessions +

What's your favourite make up look? Neutral eye, with perfect brows, glossy lips, and glowing skin. Plus tons of mascara on curled lashes with a peach-ish, gold highlighted cheek!

Do you have a beauty vice? Lip products. I love them!! I have more glosses than anything else! If you saw my storage you'd understand! :)

What part of your body do you love?
My feet. I think feet really tell you a lot about a person. But, my feet are small and i like to say dainty. And they're one of my MOST complimented part(s) of me!! :)

Who is your beauty icon?
Yikes. I never know the answer to this question since they're a few. If you were to ask a modern icon... it would be Jennifer Aniston. Her skin always looks so perfect. She loves to wear subtle makeup that accentuates. Plus, she always rocks the bronzed, gold-y skin!

What beauty product makes you feel instantly sexy?
I don't really have a beauty "product" that makes me feel that way. Maybe perfume....?

How do you look after your skin?
I'm a strong believer in never sleeping in your makeup! I always wash and moisturize before I sleep. Drink TONS of H2O. Sleep a min of 8 hrs. And try (emphasize the "try") to eat healthy. I have a love/hate relationship w/my skin. It's very sensitive and can only take so much makeup!

What is your signature scent?
I have 2. It's a dead tie between the 2. Marc Jacobs for women and "Lovely" by SJP. If they were in a fight .... "Lovely" would probley win! LOL :)

What are your haircare secrets?
I don't have any. I hate my hair. I'm barely figuring out how to manage it now at my age! Give me a few years, then ask again. I might have a secret to tell! :)

How do you pamper yourself?
Pedicures and bubble baths! Oh, and silk pajamas!

What is your beauty pet peeve?
UN-blended foundation, toooooo much blush and unrealistically pale lips... They make me crazy! I don't know what it is....

What would your desert island must haves be?
Sunscreen, chapstick , my fav perfume, toothbrush and toothpaste. Just cause i'm deserted doesn't give me the right to have STANK breath :p

Finally, do you have a beauty philosophy?
Blend, blend, blend!!!!
