MAC Hey Sailor Haul, Thoughts, + Swatches!

Another year, another Mac summer collection!

Mac summer collections are usually my favorite makeup collection of the whole entire year, BUT this year I was quite disappointed. :(
And I say that as a certified MAC ADDICT.

This year, only 2 products tickled my fancy...those products being the Fleet Fast powder blush, and the Crew highlight powder!

Here is Fleet Fast blush! 
This blush is SO gorgeous, I kid you not! It's a beautiful dark coral color with golden shimmer.

You can actually see the golden shimmer in this picture! SO LOVELY!!

Crew highlight is probably going to be my favorite highlight this summer! It's basically 3 - 4 products in 1, depending on how you look at it. The highlight has three different surface colors, plus the beige highlight overspray. My only issue is that the beige highlight is an overspray, so eventually you'll run out of highlight powder, and only be left with the three blush-like colors. Lucky for me, I really like the three colors! ^_^

The purple is more of a lilac purple, the pink is your basic shimmery light pink, and the orange is like the orange of a cream-sicle pop!

Here's swatches in the sun! R-L: Fleet Fast, Crew (lilac, pink, orange, beige highlight, mixed)

And here's the swatches under florescent light!

Overall, I feel like I picked some EXCELLENT products. I love the two products I bought. I also just bought Riviera Life lip glass, but I have to wait for it to arrive...BOO :(

Here's my haul video! ♥

If you purchased anything from this collection, what'd you get and what did you think about it? Please share your thoughts below! =)

Makeup Look: Rihanna "Where Have You Been" Music Video Inspired

I've been everywhere, man, looking for you babe...
lookin' for you, babe...
searchin' for you babe...
where have you been all my life?

Yes, ladies & gents...
I am wearing RED eyeshadow!!!

I know, I know...I'm surprised too! The only reason for this, though, is because of Rihanna's new video for her song "Where Have You Been"!

There were a few makeup looks to chose from when it came to this music video. Yet, the red eye look really called out to me. It's something different and new for me, so I HAD to try it ^_^
