MAC To the Beach

I made it to MAC around noon on the 27th hoping they weren't sold out of the Marine Life powder. Luckily, they had two left and I snagged one!! It is gorgeous! I haven't touched it yet. I think I'd rather just collect it and look at it.

I also picked up two shadows- firecracker and sweet and punchy. Firecracker is a red-orange. It is a beautiful color mixed with greens and blended. I also love sweet and punchy. It's a bright yellow-green. It was the most unique of them all. Both are bright and are not for people who are afraid of color. But, I definately recommend adding them to your collection.

I also had three back to mac's and ended up getting bombshell, fanfare and vegas volt lipsticks. I love them all!

I still want the cream bronzers and hipness blush. And I will eventually get the 130 brush to add to my collection.

OPI Shrek polishes

I purchased four of the six polishes from this collection- Who the shrek are you, what's with the cattitude, ogre the top blue and fiercely fiona.

Shrek is a slime colored green. It is very thick and streaky when applied. I had to apply three coats to get it to look smooth, but then it bubbled up and peeled off even with a basecoat and Seche Vite topcoat.

Fiona is a yellow with a dirty green looking undertone. I really am not a fan of the color, even though the application was smoother than the Shrek.

Ogre is my favorite of the one's I purchased. It is a medium blue kind of on the teal side. Nothing special, but unique to my collection.

Cattitude is a great summer color. It's a pale pastel blue. This one was easiest to apply out of them all.

Pics to come.
