MAC Fabulous Felines Leopard Luxe Quad look


A couple months ago I picked up the Leopard Luxe quad at a CCO and am finally getting around to trying it. I bought it because of the taupy color with gold flecks, but it doesn't show up that nice when it's worn. Oh well....

I can't for the life of me remember what lipstick I used, I'm sorry!

Clarins Enchanted Summer 2012 Collection -- I'm In Love!!!

Wowww... For someone who RARELY likes other brands' makeup, this is a big deal for me. Clarins is releasing its summer collection called Enchanted Summer, coming out in May. A few pics...



Model is wearing: 
Face: Skin Illusion Foundation,  Bronzing Duo in Medium,  Blush Prodige in soft peach
Eyes: Enchanted Colour Quartet, Kohl Kajal  in Black,  Wonder Waterproof Mascara in Black,  Pro Palette Eyebrow Kit
Lips: Colour Quench Lip Balm in Nude Delhi


Fix Makeup Spray
Color Quench Lip Balms (smell awesome) in Pink Jaipur and Nude Delhi
Wonder Waterproof Mascara in Black and Wonder Mint (A MUST IF YOU LOVE COLORED MASCARAS!!)

ps, Wonder Mint was released a few years ago in a previous Clarins summer collection, I bought it, and it's absolutely amazing. It's super teal, just as in the picture, and goes on very opaque. *buys 10*

Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm:
From top to bottom,
Crystal Pink
Crystal Violet
Crystal Coral

Clarins promises: "The colour of a lipstick, the transparency of a gloss, and the comfort of a lip balm."

All in all, I'm super excited about this! Definitely getting the quad, teal mascara, and violet kohl! Anything catch your attention?
