New MAC Lines 2011 - Part 2

     Next up is the "Quite Cute" collection. I have been browsing the Interwebs looking at pictures and I am already hooked. The products look so attractive this time around. Very feminine, but not little girl-ish. I think that this collection might be the one that makes 2011's wallet hurt a little bit.
     In this line, we have Lipsticks, Plushglasses, Lip Pencils, the Cutie Eyeshadow Quad, Mineralize Blushes, Nail Lacquers, False Lashes, Penultimate Eyeliner, and Zoomlash....
oh. my. goodness. i think i am in love.

Kleancolor and Merle Norman Liquid Eyeliner Review

    I recently got two new liquid eyeliners! Since eyeliner is somewhat of a closet addiction for me, I have gone through MANY liners... the good and the bad! This being said, I don't claim to know everything about them, but I can spot a bad one from a mile away! (raccoon eyes are not sexy. ever.)
     Anyway, I just received Kleancolor Tattoo Eye Liquid Eyeliner from a swap. Obviously, mine was free, but you can find it online for anywhere from $1 to $5. It's a plain black formula, almost like the old school pin-up eyeliner. There is no sparkle or shimmer to it, and I like that. It's hard to find a plain black liquid eyeliner now, unless you want to go to MAC or somewhere simliar.

Spring Hot Pink Look

     For all of you out there who are squirm-ish about color... I did a very simple, quick look with HOT PINK! yayyyy! I realize that not everyone likes bright colors on their face. But I do. So here it goes!

Urban Decay "Midnight Cowboy" Review

     Let's go ahead and jump right in, shall we? I am home for spring break this week, and my lovely mother decided to take me and my younger sisters to the movies. I was in a huge hurry to get ready, and decided to just throw my makeup on. I picked up Midnight Cowboy by Urban Decay eyeshadow, and threw it on over a little bit of primer. Add a bit of Blankety by MAC lipstick and we were off!

Hello world!

     I suppose that this is my "inaugural" post! :D More than anything, I just wanted to say hi to all of the people out there who might stumble across this blog. As for a quick introduction...
Hi, my name is Sarah
*Hi Sarah*
 and i am a makeup-aholic.

Yes, this is true. I have a severe longing to touch every color of cosmetic out there... with my face!
I will be posting reviews, swatches, hauls, all kinds of things. Plus, I may even let you in on my life every once in a while. :)

I hope you enjoy! Please feel free to comment, talk, discuss, debate... anything as long as it is not degrading or offensive. That's all for this post.
