MAC new l/s review & Randomness

Hi guys! How y'all doing?

First of all....HOLY GUACAMOLE! 1,000 FOLLOWERS?!! You guys are too good to me. *tears*

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for always being so supportive and inspiring. You guys are the reason why I continue bloggin/YTing.

BTW! I've just joined Formspring. Ask me anything! Feel free to follow!

Now, let's get to the main reason why you are all following me. Review/Swatches.

I recently got 2 MAC l/s from their new collection. One is called Fresh Salmon (Spring Forcast), and one is called Viva Glam Cyndi Lauper (Viva Glam 2010)

Fresh salmon (L) and Cyndi Lauper (R)

While they look kinda similar in the picture above, they are actually quite different in real life.

Fresh Salmon is a lot more corally, a lot warmer, and with really fine gold shimmers.

Cyndi Lauper is more of a translucent (no shimmer) pinky-red. It's very wearable for those of us (includ. me) who can't quite pull off red lipstick in everyday life.

Similarities? They are both lustres and are very sheer yet layer-able.

Swatches: Obviously the lighter one is Fresh Salmon, and the darker is Cyndi Lauper.

Fresh Salmon in action (no lipbalm/gloss. Sorry for my gross looking lips. Winter hasn't been good to me) . I forgot to take pics of me wearing Cyndi. I will take some pics for sure when I wear it the next time (in BOULDER!!!)

I was squinting cuz the sun was shining RIGHT in my eyes.

I strongly recommend these two lipsticks because they are so versatile and can brighten up any complexion. This is the reason why I didn't get Viva Gaga l/s, because while I adore Lady Gaga, I've learnt from my experience that cool pink looks like death on me. So even though I'm DYING to buy Viva Gaga, I know I won't use it. : (

Here is another one of my obsessions. Lay's Cajun Herbs & spices chips.

See, Ma? It's healthy for me cuz it's all natural!! LOL!

You open the big bag and all you get is like 1/4 of the bag of chips.

I love how perfect the chips are when you open a new bag. Look at all that seasoning!!

Here comes Godzilla!

Perfection no more.

Yeah, this is my last post before leaving for Miami then Colorado tomorrow. Be prepared for massive photo dump when I get back! :D

Take care,

P.S. Totally forgot I filmed my fave products of Feb. :D and YES, I was pale before Twilight made it cool.
