MAC X Hayley Williams!

OK, so I told myself that I wasn't going to purchase anything from the MAC and Hayley Williams collaboration. HOWEVER I was kind of obsessed with swatches of the Mineralized Skinfinish in Lightscapade that I ultimately caved and bought it. What a splurge. But it's a heavenly highlighting shade and it's not so severe that it sparkles and makes me look like a disco ball. It's perfect for light skinned ladies and it has a silver candlelight color. So soft, subtle and gorgeous *sigh*

This makeup look was inspired by Hayley's NYLON magazine cover look ;)

MAC's Heroine

Heroine, Heroine, Heroine...what can I say about this lipstick?
It's perfect, amazing, gorgeous, sexy, bold, beautiful...I can seriously keep going.
Heroine is one of my favorite lipsticks ever. The color is obviously purple but it's more on the magenta side than it is on the blue side. So it's everyday wearable without being too sci-fi looking. It's a gorgeous hue and naturally I was over the moon when I heard that it was coming back this spring with MAC's fashion sets. I still have my tube from my purchase last year, but I had to buy another one obviously. *_*
I didn't end up getting the matching lipliner because NYX's Purple Rain is a total dupe. It matches the lipstick perfectly, yay!!

Kat Von D "Saint Palette"

So I went into Sephora a few weeks ago for an interview...I didn't get it the job BTW -__- ...but anyway, I was looking at all the new products and came across the Kat Von D makeup line. I used to be obsessed with her and when she first came out with a makeup like I was excited. The first thing and only thing I ever bought from her line was the "True Love" eyeshadow palette. It's now discontinued, but I use it at least once a week and I've only reached pan on two or three out of the 8 shades.
The colors are gorgeous but the consistency is not supreme quality, but no matter. The colors are still gorgeous and very workable.
When I came across this new palette of all neutrals, I was excited! I don't own any of the Naked palettes mostly because of price. So after swatching the palette in store and dreaming about it for a week after our first meeting I decided to purchase it. It also comes with a black waterproof pencil. Price tag $43+ tax.
The colors are buttery smooth and soft. The only con is that it's a bit too soft and it falls. With some primer, these shadows are great:)

Hayley Williams Inspired Makeup Looks

I recreated Hayley's look from the April issue of AP magazine. The look is striking, bold and in your face. Hayley ALWAYS takes chances with her makeup, and I really respect that. Sometimes it turns out crazy and weird, but you have to admire her for stepping outside the box and having fun with it :)

This look was inspired the makeup she had for her Nylon cover! Classic orange lips and black winged liner a la Hayley! 

The main products I used to complete both of these looks were:
The BH day and night palette, BH Blush palette, revlon black cherry lipstick (for the first look), Personelle Poppy lipliner and MAC's betty bright lipstick for the second look. :)
