Review: MAC Cosmetics Colour Craft

20090727-mac-cosmetics-natural-flare-eyeshadowMAC Cosmetics newest makeup collection, Colour Craft, is an amazing palette of fall color goodness. Actually, so many of the colors in their eye shadow palettes made me think of clothes with those same colors that I’d like to wear this autumn. By far, my favorite eye shadow palette is Natural Flare (pictured. ) I tend to stick with “safe” colors…ie. neutral colors.  But I do know that the copper and gold in this palette can do amazing things for your eyes, especially those of us with hazel eyes.

Travel Beauty: Las Vegas

20090723-lasvegassignIt was my first trip to sin city where the temperature is hot and sometimes (Ok most times) the guys are even hotter.  I was in the city to speak at Cosmoprof North America on social media for Private Label, staying at the very luxurious Mandalay Bay. It quite honestly was the best time I have had in a very, very long time (and was much needed!) But this post isn’t about my time there, but instead to focus on my Travel Beauty series I like to do when I travel.

As always, I like to pack the necessities I can’t leave home without. This time it was a mix of some new products I am trying, as well as products I adore. Starting from left to right… Read more
