If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready!

We’ve all had those days where we get a text message from a friend at 5:00 to meet up for happy hour at 6:00 with no time to go home. Usually when this happens two thoughts cross my mind: Is … Continue reading

MAC COSMETICS… Candy Yum Yum

Okay so if you’re a lipstick fan, especially a MAC Lipstick fan, you should already know this is the hottest lipstick out right now. I went to┬áthe mall in my area that has 4 MAC stores/counters (yes, 4!) and all were completely sold out.

Candy Yum Yum was first sold at MAC in the 2011 Quite Cute collection and completely sold out in record time. The color was brought back and made a permanent color in Dec 2012.

The shocking pink color of this lipstick is absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on a tube (or two)! I plan to mix it with my favorite MAC liner in Magenta. I hope it looks as good on as I’m thinking in my head.

I will definitely return with reviews and pics once I get my hands on this gorgeous color.

This lipstick is $15 USD and can be found where MAC Cosmetics are soldMAC Cosmetics

Tom Ford… My New Addiction

NMC0YZY_mxNMC0Z0N_mx

For the last 10 years, I’ve been a MAC snob when it comes to lipsticks, I wouldn’t try or look at another brand because in my opinion MAC has the best colors. This all changed during a recent trip to SAKS. My mind was set on buying NARS blushes and shadows. While going through ridiculous amounts of NARS makeup, the wonderful sales associate suggested I buy something with my gift card that I wouldn’t normally buy for myself. She then led me to the Tom Ford counter and this wonderful lipstick, Sable Smoke (pictured above on the left). Now, this was my first time trying this product line and I WAS IN LOVE. This was the most moisturizing, creamy, smooth as silk lipstick I have ever applied to my lips. I was immediately sold. That was until I saw the color Wild Ginger (pictured above on the right). This color was to die for. I spent a good 20 minutes going back and forth between colors and eventually picked the Sable Smoke because it’s more “work appropriate” than the bright orange.

It’s one month later and I’m still loving the creamy texture of the Tom Ford lipstick in Sable Smoke and I usually pair it with the NARS gloss in SUPERVIXEN (purchased on the same day). I’m still dying to purchase the Wild Ginger lipstick and I think about it often *sighs*. It’s so hard to find the PERFECT orange and I have found it. Wild Ginger shall be mine soon!

If you’re interested in purchasing either of these lipsticks or seeing more of Tom Ford’s cosmetic line, they can be found at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and Saks Fifth Avenue. The lipsticks retail for $50 USD.
