My Favorite MAC Lipsticks+Swatches



My top 4 favorite MAC Lipsticks!!
Swatches:




Angel: Mac describes it as a soft pink. It is a frost finish and I didn't honestly think I would like it. Angel in my opinion is not very frosty at all. It does have a very slight shimmer but it's very creamy on application. Although I do love this lipstick I do find it very drying and the staying power is not very long.


Hue: Mac describes it as a soft pale pink. It is a glaze finish. It leaves your lips feeling soft and very moisturized. It's very sheer but buildable. I really love it but the lasting power is not so great. I finding myself having to reapply often. 


Lovelorn: Mac describes it as a emotive blue pink. It is a lustre finish. I really like MAC lustre lipsticks because they don't dry my lips out. They are sheer, moisturizing, and very easy to apply. This looks great paired with a neutral or dramatic look.


Hug me: Mac describes it as a flesh pink. It is a lustre finish. I really love this lipstick and it's one of my go to nude lipsticks. I love that it doesn't wash me out.



What are your favorite MAC lipsticks??

Review: Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion



I was very excited to have the opportunity to review Prtty Peaushun (pronounced Pretty Potion). This is a popular product among celebrities to get that glowing, luminous look to their skin for red carpets. 



ABOUT THE PRODUCT:



"Subtle light reflecting particles in a natural emollient base give the skin a gorgeous, flattering glow. Radiance conceals minor imperfections and enhances definition to create a sexy, slimmer silhouette. Infused with an innovative blend of natural plant extracts to lift, firm, tighten and diminish the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks and varicose veins, as well as minimizing bruising and sore muscles. 

LOOK GREAT IN YOUR BIRTHDAY SUIT...


As a Hollywood makeup artist, Bethany has been using this formula to make her celebrity clients' skin glow. After years of request to make this product available, Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion is finally here. It not only looks beautiful on, but with the help of some innovative active ingredients, will also improve the condition of your skin. The subtle light reflecting pigments in the shades Light, Medium, Dark, and Deep Dark will help even out skin tone and enhance muscle tone. Use Plain on its own for a colorless shine sans the glow or layer on top of your skin tone shade for an even more luminous look."



FORMULA: 



"The Prtty Peaushun formula is natural and fragrance free. It does not contain any toxic ingredients and is formulated without DEA, GMO's, Parabens, Petrochemicals, Pthalates, Propyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Sulfates, Synthetic dye, Synthetic fragrance, Talc, Toluene, Triclosan" No animal products. Not tested on animals.


REVIEW: 



I was thrilled to be able to try out this product. I chose Dark out of the 4 shades to choose from. I love the packaging of this lotion. It ensures that you will get every single bit out so none is wasted. This lotion has a watery texture and makes it easy to blend the product in. It's very lightweight and sinks into the skin super fast! It shows off muscles tones and gives  a beautiful, golden glow to my skin.. It also wears well and does not rub off onto clothes. I will definitely purchase more once my package is empty.

Retail Value: $36 @ www.prttypeaushun.com

Products I use to keep my feet soft and smooth





I'm a big lover of open-toed shoes, sandals, and high heels but they can definitely take a toll on your feet. I have been on the search for products to help my feet. These are three products that I love and have been using for awhile now. No more dry, scaly, rough feet.  



CVS Cracked Heel Balm
This is an amazing product. I noticed a difference in my feet in one use! I like to apply this right before bedtime. I just roll CVS Cracked Heel Balm all over my feet then put socks on. In the morning I wake up to soft feet. This product is incredible and can be purchased at CVS for $8.99.

Ped egg
I have been using the Ped egg for many years now. I have to admit when it first came out on tv, I didn't think it would work. I have tried so many "As seen on tv" products and MOST never worked. This is one of the few that definitely works. I like to use this after getting out of the shower when my feet are dry. I'm amazed at the shavings in the container after filing my feet. I purchased mine at Walmart for $9.99.



Mr. Pumice Pumi Bar
I love to use this while I'm in the shower. Once my feet are softened from the water, I will scrub my feet with this. It helps rid my feet of any dead skin. I love it and it is very cheap. I purchased mine from Sally's for $1.59!!


Have you tried any of these products?? What are your favorite foot care products??
