MAC Red Brick Eyeshadow Review, Photos, Swatches

 Lately I've been having this obsession with adding MAC Rule to my eyes as a transition color when doing my makeup. I just love how it looks and how it pretty much goes with everything! I really really like Rule but I wanted to see if MAC had anything a little bit deeper than Rule and of course they did!   

Red Brick- described as an orange red with a matte finish.

I am so in love with this eyeshadow! Red Brick is such a vibrant medium dark orange color with warm undertones. It looks so lovely as a transition color! I will definitely have a look up soon using Red Brick.

MAC Office Hours Longwear Eternal Sun Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

I love warm tone blushes, especially for summer. Summer is just around the corner and I love wearing a nice summery glow.

 Eternal Sun- a warm brown color with a hint of orange and a satin like finish.

This is such a beautiful warm tone blush. It has this orangy, brownish color to it. It has an amazing buttery texture to it. It has a very little shimmer to it, almost unnoticeable. I love wearing this on sunny days and adding a great glowy highlight. I have a feeling it will be a summer favorite!

Milani: Rose Powder Blush (Permanent) Collection and Color Statement Lipsticks

I am super excited to share this post with you guys because I'm so happy Milani decided to make a permanent collection for their Rose Powder Collection. When they first came out with this limited Edition collection everyone went nuts and had to have them. I wasn't able to get any of them and I was so bummed because they were so pretty! Milani decided to bring back three of their limited Edition Rose Powders and make them into their permanent collection. I was so happy wen Milani announced it and I made sure to get them this time. They are even prettier in person and the gold packaging is to die for! Being the lipstick junkie that I am, I decided to also try their Statement Lipsticks.

Romantic Rose, Tea Rose, Coral Cove 

Romantic Rose- a soft mauve pink.

Tea Rose- a light rose pink.

Coral Cove- a bright orange, coral.

Beside how pretty these blushes are and how the packaging is to die for, these blushes are super soft and super pigmented. A little goes a long way. I didn't even want to swatch them because they're so pretty. Definitely a must have  product! 

Color Statement Lipsticks

Milani has two different types of their Color Statement Lipsticks, one being a matte finish and the other one has more of a satin finish.

Blissfull (matte), Innocence (matte), Nude Creme

Innocence- a true nude color. It is very drying on the lips and settles into the fine lines. It can tend to look a little like you have concealer on the lips.

Nude Creme- a  pinkish nude color that glides on like butter!

Blissful- a bright pink color with some blue undertones. On the tube this shade looks more of a mauve pink but once it's applied it's to die for!

I am really loving these lipsticks! They are great quality lipsticks with full color coverage. 

I am very pleased with Milani cosmetics. They have some great quality products and the packaging is super cute. I will definitely try more of their products!

Walt Disney World Orlando tips and tricks

If you follow me on Instagram then you know we took a family trip at the beginning of February to Walt Disney World Orlando. Every year we try and go on a family vacation. Last year it was Hawaii and the year before that it was San Francisco. We don't always go on a huge trip, instead we focus on places we haven't been and what there is to do there as a family. My husband and I would rather go on a family vacation instead of a getaway for us two. I really enjoy our trips as a family and spending quality time together as a family. There's no greater feeling!

After getting emails about my trip I decided to do a post on what I did to save money on a family of four and tips and tricks for traveling with little kids, to where to stay. We all know that a family trip is already expensive to do and adding Walt Disney World to the equation doesn't make it any better. We had never gone to Disney World Orlando and we're also moving to Japan next month and we're planning on going to Walt Disney World Tokyo so we thought it would only be right if we went to Walt Disney World Orlando to compare them both. After this trip we decided we would put it on our bucket list to visit every single Disneyland in the world! How fun would that be? When it comes to our family vacations I really enjoy the whole process of it. The husband and I love planing our trips together.

I made these Minnie Mouse Ears

MAC Heirloom Mix Collection in No Faux Pas Review, Photos, Swatches

I can't believe this is the first time I'm wearing this lipstick. I had stashed it in my makeup collection and when I shipped my makeup to Japan I found it. I decided to leave it behind so I can finally wear it and I'm so glad I did!

The packaging is so pretty. It has glitter specs all over!

No Faux Pas- a bright, fuchsia-red color with blue undertones and a matte finish.
