I’ve recently been branching out and trying new mascara’s. As you know, I’m pretty faithful to my MAC products and that hasn’t changed. I first tried MAC’s Zoom Fast Black Lash. I liked it. Can’t say I loved it, but it got the job done. It does have a carbon black pigment in it, which I liked. But I also felt like it didn’t last very long. I was in need of a new tube quicker than I had hoped. Then I switched to using the Opulash Optimum Black, that’s what I use now and I love it. I’m really picky about my mascara wands. I prefer a thicker brush, and by the photos above you can clearly see the difference in the two. It lasts all day (15 hours to be exact) and lengthens them pretty well. It’s supposed to give more expansion and curl. I’m the type of person who puts it on pretty thick and this mascara makes it much easier to do so.
Both of these mascaras can be found at MAC for $15.00 each
I remember when I was too afraid to rock a red lip. Now I barely go without. One of my favorite combinations for anyone who’s interested:
- MAC’s “Burgundy” lip pencil
- MAC’s Pro Longwear “Prolong” lipcreme
- MAC’s “Love Alert” Dazzleglass

And I love this follower : ) Oooh lip color, my new obsession. I used to be nothing but gloss. Hated lipstick, never cared for it. But all of a sudden it’s all I buy, I’m constantly buying new colors. I suggest you try some of MAC’s Viva Glam lipsticks. I like these because there’s always a color for everyone. I think Viva Glam III would especially look good on you. They’re nice shades to ease into color if you’re not super comfortable with them yet. Here’s a link to them:
Also the proceeds to all of the Viva Glam items go to the MAC Aids fund. So you’re looking good and supporting a good cause ; )

Yes! MAC’s Pro Longwear lipstick is amazing. It lasts for hours, I actually have trouble rubbing it off at the end of the night. Here’s a link to their site: http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/shaded/168/10179/Pro-Longwear-Lipcreme/index.tmpl
I have the “Prolong" red, but I think the "Good To Go" would look good on you! : )

Yay! : D You’re welcome! I’m so glad it worked for you! I love that stuff, wish they still had my color.
About a week ago I bought the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation and I promised a quick review. I am so glad that I bought it. I was skeptical at first because I was sure that it would just make my face even oilier than it is and I’d have wasted $40. But that wasn’t the case at all. I put it on before work everyday around 9 AM. Most nights I go out after work so I’m not getting home until around midnight or after and I barely need to touch it up! My lovely lady at my local MAC store told me that these typically run dark, so your color might actually be lighter than you think. Make sure you try a couple until you find your match.
All you need is 2 squirts (I use more like 1 and a half) and apply evenly with a brush, not a sponge. Brushes give the best results! I was told to use brush #130 and I recommend it to the fullest, but if not any similar brush will do
After you’ve applied it evenly, set it with a powder. No need for a thick coat, just a light sweep over the face. I use MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinnish Natural
And after that you’re done! It works wonders. My skin is naturally oily, those who can relate know that no matter what you’ll probably have to use blot powder at least once a day. But it definitely lives up to it’s name, because it lasts a very long time. They’re made to last 15 hours! I took a 3 hour nap today, face rolled all over my pillow and it still looks great lol. Definitely recommend!! So far I love the Pro LongWear Collection. I’ve got the foundation, I have the lipcreme (will do a review on that if you like) that I absolutely adore, all that’s next to try is the concealer!
