MAC Pedro Lourenco Nude Quad + Aquatics "Lorelai"

Hello Friends!

Today I'm sharing one of my first MAC purchases, of many I'm sure! I just love the way MAC eye shadows apply, they are just the smoothest and most buttery.  I'm always on the search for a great champagne color so I picked up the "Lorelei" single and "Pedro Lourenco Nude Quad", I'm completely happy with both of these and have gotten tons of use out of them already.  The colors all go so well together and I am constantly using them in conjunction with Soft Brown.  Do you have any MAC faves or recommendations?

It Cosmetics CC Bronzer

On a trip to Ulta I recently picked up the It Cosmetics CC Ombre Bronzer and I have to say it was every bit as gorgeous as it showed in pictures.  The product says it's a bronzer but the way I use it is as a highlighter in the lighter portion and a bronzer on the medium toned brown side.  This product blends amazingly into my skin and lately it has been the favorite part of my beauty routine.  My packaging had some defects and I spoke with an It Cosmetics rep, to my surprise she sent me a brand new compact so now I have a backup.  I hope they don't discontinue this as I absolutely adore it but I am not sure if it is limited edition. Enjoy the swatches below.

Nails of the Month July 2014

Hi guys,

Hope everyone is having a great start to the week, I thought I'd share my much overdue nail polish picks from July.  My nail colors were all over the place this month but I really enjoyed some of them and felt like they spoke well for my Summer mood.  I should have a post up for August soon since it is September and then I'll be all caught up.  I just received the new Zoya Entice & Ignite collections so I'm heavily swatching those and they will take the place of polish picks for September or it will be a very short post for this month.  Enjoy!!

Orly "Pixy Stix"

Thanks for checking out my picks from this month, what were your favorites?
