Miss Piggy

To my surprise a box arrived on my doorstep yesterday.  While I do not like and/or support MAC, the little black box was familiar.  I brought it inside and set it someplace, forgetting it.  When I stumbled back across it it was late and I ripped it open to find one small eyeshadow. While I […]

Villainous!

Impromptu MAC Destash! I pulled a stuff stuff out of my closet and found my stash of MAC Venomous Villains stuff.  The most I ever did with this stuff was swatch it and I won’t use it.  As pretty as the packaging is, I’m still going to let it go. You can read my review […]

M & M’s

That’s an odd title for a post, especially considering I’m not a fan of chocolate.  It’s perfect for the battle I’m waging today between Morgana Cyrptoria and MAC.  Yes, I’m finally bringing you all the epic lipstick battle, only it’s not all that epic.  It’s actually pretty cut and dry. MAC Value Each MAC lipstick […]

1 – Favorite Moisturizer Oil of Olay Definity Deep Penetrating Foaming UV Moisturizer I bought this the first time on accident.  I had meant to put the moisturizer next to it in my cart, but I was distracted by… something.  When I got home I was upset, but I opened it and figured I might […]

Black off!

The most frequently asked question I get is, “What’s the best matte black eyeshadow?” There are, arguably, three that would be listed as top contenders.  I sat down over a grueling few weeks to find out which black shadow reigns supreme. From left to right: MAC, MUFE, and Sugarpill Top is on skin, bottom is […]

An Unscientific Method

Tartan Tale

This past week I did a few things for MAC and they offered me a few comp items.  I hovered around the counter for a while before I decided on a few of the new Tartan Tales shadows as well as a few of their other newer products. I got three of the gorgeous looking […]

Venomous Villains – A Review

After the Rodarte debacle I thought that I was fairly resolved to stay away from MAC.  They honestly don’t sell anything you can’t get someplace else, and often better and less expensive.  That resolve turned into a giant bucket of fail when I actually saw the VV Collection in person. As usual, I got the […]

Gold Farming

I was at the MAC counter the other day poking through the VV collection when I stopped to give their Pigments a good look.  Technically they aren’t actually pigments.  A pigment is a raw color.  MAC sells them blended with binders and other stuff so they are actually a  loose shadow.  After I got over […]
