I wanted to give you all a run down of the MAC Cosmetics X Macy’s Meet and Greet in case you could not attend or join in on the live demo on Instagram! First and foremost I want to Thank all the amazing and very talented people over at MAC and Macy’s on State Street who gave me this honor. You all were incredibly welcoming and so fun to hang out with! For all my Chicago followers if you are in the area please make sure to check out this location for your MAC Cosmetics and beauty needs!
The guests and I had so much fun just talking about MAC products we love and why we love them, shared tips and talked and talked and talked all night, all things beauty! One guest loved my makeup that night and wanted to know how I get a natural looking makeup application. We grabbed some of my must have MAC Products along with suggestions from the MAC artists for her skin tone and started a live demo on my Instagram Stories where I discussed why I love these products, shared beauty tips and answered questions.
Clarissa created a natural look that had a smokey eye that can be worn during the day with a nude lip but adding a pop of color on the lips gives the look a stamp of glam approval. Not only did Natasha love the way her makeup looked but she loved the way it felt! She doesn’t wear a ton all the time so I felt it was important for her to try some of my fav MAC MVP’s that are fool proof in my opinion. This is what many of the guests talked about, natural looking makeup that gives a “this is me but better than me look” Too many steps and products can be very intimidating and even though I am a “Beauty Blogger” I am an everyday woman who doesn’t have a ton of time to get ready and myself can be intimidated at times with too many steps (insert the perfect smokey eye… gets me everytime lol)
Eye Shadow all over lid was Brown Script and the rest of the eye was created with MAC Warm Palette (Clarissa said she loves it for travel because every shade you can possibly need is there – yep this is added to my MAC wish list)
Fix Plus Spray – This is just a must always. Like I said there and I will say it now, I literally bathe in Fix Plus! LOL!!!!
Before & After Shots:
Thank You so much to all my followers and guests that came to the event and joined in on Instagram Live. Your support and sweet comments in my DM’s means so much and I truly enjoy interacting with you daily on all things beauty! I am testing out some new MAC products and wanted to give you the run down. Please let me know if you have tried these and what you are loving right now from MAC.

Well it is officially Fall to me even though its 90 degrees in Chicago this week. I am very much ready for a pumpkin spice lattes, sweaters, 60 degree days and a deep nude or vampy lip! In the recent years I have been changing up my makeup by seasons and have so much fun with it! Whether its a bright orange lipstick for summer or darker toned lips for fall, I love playing with lipstick. When it comes to Fall makeup nothing screams it more than a MAC Vamp Lipstick. They can seem intimidating but berries and deeper purples can look gorgeous with a toned down makeup look. MAC has many more options than these but these are some classic MAC Vamp Lipstick options. Enjoy!!!

Just like a red lip, you have to find a shade that works for you and one you are comfortable with. By just looking at the tube some look so much darker than they are so make sure to swatch and have fun with this trend! The MUA’s at MAC are always helpful with choosing the best shade and don’t forget there are tons of options at the drugstore for those who are just trying out this look or on a budget.
What is your go to look for Fall? Do you like to rock a vampy lip? Let me know in the comments below.

Nude Lips are so classic and can be worn with many different makeup looks. I love experimenting with different tones for the fall and in general. Lets be honest nude makeup is my favorite lol Whether its a brown toned nude or a more pink/mauve nude there are endless options when it comes to MAC, not just with shades but with different finishes. One thing I love about MAC , no matter your skin tone they have you covered! With fall just around the corner I wanted to show you 9 more must have MAC Nude Lipstick!
Do you spot any of your favorites? Hug Me is such a beautiful nude and because its a lustre finish I love the way it looks and is a nice change from my normal mattes. I can mix it with other colors easily or switch it up with different lip liner shades. Whirl is new to me even though I know it has a cult following (late to the game I know!!!) Whirl is such a fun darker shade on me that brings me back to the 90’s and I LOVE IT!
What are your must have nude lipsticks? Do you have MAC lipsticks you can not live without? For me Honey Love, Spirit and Blankety are some of my must haves see swatches HERE. I am excited to switch things up for Fall this year! Don’t forget to subscribe, share and pin!

When it comes to Nude Lips its so personal. Why? Because not everyone’s lip color is the same. We all want to achieve and have that perfect nude lip and sometimes that is not easy to find especially at an affordable price. I love to rock a red lip but there is something so classic about a nude lip especially with a smokey eye.
For my skin tone I love a nude lip that is lighter brown/pinky toned but I also love to wear a darker brown shade especially in the fall. When I posted my most loved MAC nudes a reader said to me that the colors I posted were not “nude”. I was taken back by this comment a bit because I had an array of shades. What is nude for my lip color may not work on someone with a darker skin tone than me and vice versa. Nudes are not one size fits all and thanks to Maybelline, everyone can get a perfect nude for under $10. With their new Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes they “are warmer, more sensational nudes for every skin tone. Pucker up to radiant, confident color that highlights one’s natural beauty”

These lipsticks are most certainly BPAMC approved. You know I love a fabulous drugstore find and these fit the bill! Even though these are matte they are indeed super creamy and pigmented so they are super comfortable on the lips! They do not feel dry or heavy. It almost feels like you have a lip balm on. Just like all lipsticks they do need to be reapplied but I am okay with that. Just toss it in your purse for touch ups and you are good to go!
What is your go to Nude Lip Color? I love playing with so many different shades and textures.

Who doesn’t love a good lipstick? Or even a lip gloss that is not sticky? Orrrrr a lip balm that gives you soft and moisturized lips? We all love all three of these right? Well look no further because Laura Geller just dropped a lip color that has all three. Yep, you read that right. The New Laura Geller Shine Stick Triple Benefit Lipcolor offers 3 in 1 for the perfect lip! Per the Ulta Website: The pure pigments of a lipstick, the high shine of lip gloss, and the soothing moisture of lip balm to create an irresistible trifecta of stay-true, stay-put, pout-plumping coverage.
I am here to tell you this product is 100% the real deal. You indeed get a 3 in 1 product and I could not be happier because I am such a lipstick and gloss girl. Of course you have to reapply but that does not bother me one bit for multiple reasons. One the product is not promising to be long wearing, they are so comfortable and I prefer lipstick over long wearing liquid lipsticks.
I have been wearing Honey Dipped that I am realizing as I am writing this post that I missed this one to swatch! LOL I will be updating this for you guys but below you will see the rest of the 7 shades swatched. Honey Dipped (shimmering golden nude) is your perfect everyday nude so don’t worry I will be getting this updated. I wanted to get this post up because I stated on my instagramI would have this up this week.
These are not only so easy to wear but also easy to switch up colors. You can use one of the nude shades like Honey Dipped, Polished Peach or Champagne Toast for the day and grab one of the darker/brighter colors for your purse to spruce up your makeup for your night out with a bold lip! Day to night makeup solved!!! PS if you are wondering about the shape, I love it!
8 Shades available

“Cast your lips in new M∙A∙C Metallic Lips, lipstick for a trailblazing matte, metal-plated look. Rich colour melds with smooth pearlized chrome, and is available in a luxurious formula in a full spectrum of copper, bronze and titanium colour-infused shades. Vibrant, intense, explosive: A little alchemy goes a long way” The metallic lip trend is not slowing down and I am not complaining one bit about it! I prefer nude and everyday wearable colors even if they are metallic or shimmery. Not only does the New MAC Metallic Lipstick collection give you everyday wearable metallics but also some fun bold colors that I know people are going to love! Since receiving these I have played around with the nudes and I am in love! MAC Lipsticks are my all time favorite. This collection is the best of both worlds of a lipstick and a shimmer gloss!

Are you ready for the nudes? I kept gasping with each swatch. Jupiter immediately stole my heart and when I put it on my lips I just fell in love!!! The bright and bold colors are just as gorgeous do not get me wrong but if you have been following me for some time you just know nude is my thing lol
So what do you think of the Metallic lip trend? Are you happy to see MAC come out with these lipsticks and which shades are you picking up?! Let me know in the comments below!
