M.A.C. Nocturnelle

     My previous post was my first lipstick from M.A.C., so today I am going to share with you gals my very first eye shadow from M.A.C. which is "Nocturnelle". It is a frost finish and it is described as pinked-up chrome purple from their site. I think it is a limited edition, at the time I purchased this one I just asked the make-up artist any shade of eye shadow she could suggest to me and she picked this color for me. For the longest time I have been wearing this shade during special occasions together with a light pink shimmery shade of e/s from body shop. 
     The color is so gorgeous right from the pan and also true to its color when applied on. It is really a beautiful plum color for my skin tone, great for smokey eyes whether it is used as the base color for all over the eyelids or it can be used to contour the crease part of the eyes. It is by far my favorite even though I have already accumulated other shades of eye shadows for my vanity kit. 
     I asked Ish Sison ( my favorite make up artist of all time from M.A.C. Trinoma) if it is available in the store she told me she isn't familiar with it and that maybe it is a limited edition. So for those interested with this particular shade so sorry. 
    It is TGIF now and I think I'll ask "H" for a dinner tonight and for sure I'll glam up with my Nocturnelle. Have a nice weekend everyone and oh! don't forget to vote for the 7 New Wonders of Nature it is the last day today. Love love love...

Hug Me (My First Ever Lipstick from M.A.C.)

     Good day gals! It's November already, time flies so quickly! I have been a busy bee for a while and I really missed writing here. Today, I wanna share with you my first ever purchase from M.A.C. =) I do not know when exactly I bought these and as you can see on the photo below my 'Hug Me" lipstick will run out soon and I will definitely repurchase this particular shade again. 

(Sorry for the typo error: Its LUSTRE not Lustering)


      "Hug Me" is a lustre finish and described as flesh pink in the M.A.C website. It is the perfect nude lipstick for me and as for reference I am NC35 in M.A.C. Don't you just love its name? When I feel down just one tight HUG will comfort ME. I did say it's perfect nude lipstick since I have warm & medium skintone, it didn't washed me out. It is like the color of my lips but prettier. I also loved that it is in lustre finish, it is lightweight and semisheer. It doesnt dry my lips also. If you wanna have a "no make-up look" look I would suggest this lipstick, but of course what works for me won't work for you. You can definitely go to the nearest M.A.C. store and ask the make up artist for you try it first. It retails for 1000 php here in the Philippines.
