beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogMy favorite trend of the moment?  Metallic matte lips!  MAC has launched their classic 12 MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic shades with 3 completely new colors for you to explore!  The finish is like a brushed metal, and has a softer look to it than a high-gloss metallic.  The whipped consistency of this product also feels fabulous on the lips!

I’ve owned many Estee Lauder limited-edition holiday compacts over the years, but never one of the high-end, intricately-adorned designer editions, like the Estee Lauder Lady Of The Sea Holiday Compact from the 2017 holiday collection.  These compacts are truly a treasure you can carry with you daily.  This year’s collection was designed by Monica Rich Kosann.  Her background in designing fine jewelry pieces results in a sea-themed collection of compacts with the impact of statement jewelry.
