MAC and Sephora mini Haul

 Hi everyone! The other day I was out for shopping with my best friend and we went at Sephora and MAC and I got 2 lipsticks from MAC via Back2Mac and the Nails Inc. Baker street nail polish with crystal cap from Sephora. From MAC I got Blankety (soft pink beige) and Angel (soft pink) lipsticks. The nail polish was on sale at Sephora and I thought to get it as a backup, I just couldn't resist the crystals and this awesome blue color. If you want to see swatches of Baker street you can click here.

L-R: Blankety, Angel

Bronzers ( NARS-Benefit-Chanel-MAC)

I love using bronzers, they are my favorite makeup products after lipsticks. My first bronzer was MAC's Smooth Harmony, a limited edition beauty powder that unfortunately I don't have anymore :(  it had such a beautiful light bronze shade. Anyways, let's see the ones I have now which are very popular in the makeup world.
As seen from the photos and swatches, Benefit Hoola is the coolest shade and MAC Solar Riche is warmer. Generally I prefer the cooler shades because my skin has cool undertones.
Chanel Bronze Universal is the most natural-looking beacause of the cream formula it has and blends beautifully in skin and is the most long lasting of the four. Nars Laguna and MAC Solar Riche have a little bit of gold shimmer, but when applied on the skin MAC's SR loses the shimmer and leaves skin with a satin finish. Nars Laguna has more of a shimmery finish but in a natural way, not like a disco ball :D.
As for the prices Chanel is the most expensive of the four and MAC is the least expensive. By the way, Solar Riche is limited edition, normally you can't find it in stores but almost every summer they release it with their summer collections.

 Swatches L-R: Benefit Hoola, Nars Laguna, MAC Solar Riche, Chanel Bronze Universel

In this photo you can see that only Nars Laguna and Chanel Bronze Universal stayed after I wiped my arm with a paper towel. Mac Solar Riche and Benefit Hoola almost dissapeared.
So to sum it up, if you would ask me which one of the above bronzers i would choose if i had to have only one it would be Chanel Bronze Universal because it's the most natural looking.

Which are your favorite bronzers?

Monthly Favorites: April & May 2012


Again my favorite foundation for the last two months was Revlon Colorstay, I adore this foundation! I've  been also using alot the Nars Angelica/Laguna duo for blush and bronzer and Albatross highlighter.

The last two months I've been using my Mac neutrals palette a lot and my favorite shadows were Blanc Type, Soft Brown, Espresso, Satin Taupe and Carbon. From my eyeliners my favorite ones were Mac Feline and Make Up For Ever Αqua Eyes 0L. My favorite mascara was Mac Zoom Fast Black Lash, this is a very underestimated mascara, it's not bad actually I like it a lot, it makes my lashes fuller and blacker.

My favorite face brush was Sigma F25 Tapered Face Brush. I use this brush mostly for the application of bronzer, it's also good for powder application and contouring. Favorite eye brush was Mac 266 small angle brush. I use this brush with every type of eyeliner: gel, cream, khol even with eyeshadows. 

I love Mac lipsticks! For the last two months my favorites were Costa Chic and Viva Glam Lady Gaga. The first one is a beautiful bright coral, awesome for summer months and the Gaga one is a bright light pink. It's similar to Saint Germain but more wearable.

These nail polishes are both neon! The first one is China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy a bright, bright coral. Awesome! and the second one is the famous Nails Inc. Baker Street, a bright cobalt blue.

I'm into beauty oils lately. Hair oils, face oils, body oils etc. But this one is something else! As you can see above, I've finished a bottle of Mac's Cleanse off oil and bought a new one, right away. It lasted me  a whole year! Really! It's unbelievable for me 'cause I wear make up very often. It's very good at removing make up and even waterproof  products such as mascaras. Man! where have you been all my life?

The last two months I've been using mostly these two mini perfumes. Naomi Campbell Cat Deluxe At Night and Beyonce Heat Rush. They are both fruity-sweet scents suitable for spring and summer. The Beyonce one was given to me as a gift from my bestie Lea, kisses to her!

I bought this St. Tropez Self Tan Mousse two months ago and I've been using it very often. It is quick drying (that means no more waiting half hour before getting dressed :-)) and gives a natural golden tan to your skin.

Last but not least are two hair products that I enjoy using every time I take bath and they are TIGI S factor Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner. They make my hair soft and smooth and they smell delicious.
