MAC Cosmetics Marilyn Monroe Collection

I am very excited to get my hands on these.  I see a few of these are already sold out. 

I am not a nail polish girl so I didn’t bother getting those. 

These are the 2 blushes

The pinky one is called Teh perfect Cheek and the Peachy tone to the right is called Legendary

These are the lipstick boxes.

I only decided to get 3 lipsticks of this collection.

These Lipsticks from the Marilyn Monroe Collection are very pretty.

From the left you have Scarlet Ibis which is a matte and it reminds me off Russian Red a bit, Love Goddess is also a matte and it looks on the tube more like a blue red but once I swatched it, it has a berry color to it. Pure Zen is a nude and it really reminds me of MAC’s Shy girl.
Below is a light swatch on my hand

I didnt get any of the eye shadows. I just have enough and I am not a fan of frost shadows.

I also got the lipglass in Phiff and the lip pencil in Beet.
I will have to try them out and get some swatches of these.
Overall, I am not a fan of all the collections, however I did really want to check this one out as in the past I have regreated at least not checking the collections.

Hope you enjoy.
Hasta Luego…

Yorktown Hotel Wedding 9/2/12

Today I am happy to share with you a recent wedding.
I had the pleasure of working with Fallon, not only a beautiful bride but a very warm and breathtaking person.
Pictures were captured by the amazing Artistic Difference Photography team.
I’ve had a few brides in the past and some in the near future that are using them and I am always pleased to see the pictures.
This beautiful wedding took place 9/2/12 at the lovely Yorktown Hotel in York, PA. Makeup done by my lovely assistant Nath and I. 

Please enjoy the pictures as much as I did.

Rain or Shine 9/2/12

Hello everyone,
Today I wanted to share a recent wedding. Wedding was at the Lancaster Host Hotel. I provided airbrush makeup services to the bride, mob, mog and her lovely sister. I had a great time working with Katie and her family. I knew from our trial session that she and I would get along so well. She has such a beautiful personality.

Unfortunately the rain started in the early morning so the plans of the outside wedding were moved inside. However this bride didn’t let that stop her for marrying her soul mate and having a great time!

New Mac Pro Palette

Hello everyone,

I am a little behind on posting. I promise I will get on it as soon as I can. I have some recent hauls that certainly deserve some swatches and reviews.

This weekend while in Philadelphia, I stopped by the King of Prussia Mall. Of course I had to stop in by the MAC Cosmetics store.

I picked up a few goodies and saw they have a new palette.
See the pictures below.

I was excited to see these since I pretty much got rid of all my mac palettes and converted to the z palette. I have not yet figured out how many shadows I can fit in these but so far they look nice.

You can also buy the inserts for the blushes and shadows if you want to keep them in these.
Below is a picture of the inserts

In closing, I am not sure that I will convert to these, I will have to see how I like them once I have used this one for a little bit.

Until the next one 🙂
Thanks for reading
