In early October, I went to North Carolina on a trip for Family Dollar. Of course I wanted to meet the hair and skin care reps and learn more about the brands, but makeup is my heart. : ) One of the most exciting products that I played with has to be this L.A. Colors 16 Color Eye Shadow Palette in “Sweet”. Pigment galore.
Remember Heroine Lipstick? If not, here’s a blog post for ya with swatches and review). MAC announced that they’ll be adding it to the permanent line online January 2nd, and in stores January 16th! This is one of the best lipsticks MAC has debuted over the last few years, and the makeup world is going bonkers! The lipstick will be available Internationally in March.
Who am I kidding? I don’t need an occasion to get my brows done by the world-renowned Damone Roberts. But I’ve never had a brow shape that I’m proud of, and I’d love to see what he thinks they should look like. My brow crushes Kelly Rowland and Janelle Monae make my thirst for the perfect brow even more real. So the first session with Damone is $125, and regular visits will cost you $80. The prices go down if you use other people in his salon. But I’m going for the big kahuna.

Upon perusing the site, I noticed some REALLY interesting stuff. Brazilian waxes for men!
My obsession with barre classes came from out of nowhere. I really like Yoga, but wanted something to give me that “wow, that was an intense workout” feeling instead of the “wow, I’m so relaxed” feel. I still don’t know where I found out about barre (let’s assume it was from Pinterest).

Tomorrow, MAC Cosmetics is going to be launching the Riri Hearts MAC Holiday collection. As usual, the collection has one or two products that I really like, and that I’d say are worth the money. Take a look at the video below to see my favorite pick (Pleasure Bomb Lipstick) and some of the others that were eh. Now of course, you can make any of the products work for you. Don’t rule them out because I didn’t love them. Try them out for yourself and let me know what you think! The collection launches in stores next Thursday, December 12th.
