My Hello Kitty necklace that I posted about here has finally arrived. It is very well-made - I'm impressed by the packaging and the workmanship. I think I'm going to wear it without the little flower charm, as it looks a bit too teeny-boppy on me otherwise. This was an impulse buy - I usually prefer timeless and elegant accessories - and I may end up saving it for my daughter. But for now, it makes me happy to look down and see my HK pendant - she's so cute and I love her pink bow!
This past Friday I went to MAC and picked up some items that had been on my wishlist for a while. I've updated my MAC collection list here. I bought 2 lipsticks - Angel and Creme d'Nude. Creme d'Nude is the exact shade as Myth, but is creamy rather than drying. To be honest, I didn't need it - I mainly bought it because it usually sells out so quickly, and the store finally had it in stock. It is a lipstick that I'll have to layer with a rosier colour - it doesn't look good on me straight out of the tube.
Angel (pictured on me above) is a beautiful pink-ish shade. It's pretty popular because it's Kim Kardashian's favourite lipstick. I am totally in love with this colour - especially when layered over MAC Spice lip pencil. The lipstick is pretty long-lasting - but applying it over the lip liner makes it stay even longer.
I also picked up 2 eyeshadow brushes - 239 and 217. I asked people to recommend their favourite MAC brushes to me - and these 2 were the most popular. The 239 is good for applyinig colour on the lid, and the 217 is good for blending. Previously, I'd been using gift-with-purchase Lancome brushes and Revlon brushes - and let me tell you- it makes SUCH a difference using these MAC brushes. Colours go on richly and evenly...it's so true that make up application is better when you have the right tools!
