LUSH: Fresh Handmade Cosmetics

 My Recent Visit to LUSH Cosmetics 

So when I was in Vegas and was gambaling at Monte Carlo I saw that they had a mini mall that housed the natural cosmetic store LUSH. I had to check it out cause my friend Katrina has told me it's amazing numerous times. I ended up swooping up some pampering treasures that I've been using for the last week so I could give you the scoop on what I got:

MAC Quite Cute: Candy Yum Yum Matte Lipstick

So after my last shopping trip to the MAC counter when I bought the other Quite Cute collection items I couldn't get the hot pink matte lipstick out of my mind. So I went back the next day and swooped it up because its not everyday you see a color like that and plus I was headed for a weekend in Las Vegas and it seemed like the perfect lip color for a Saturday night in the city of sin. Boy was I right! This is hands down my new favorite lipstick. The color was the perfect pop against my bronzed skin and all black smokey eye. And the best part.... it stayed on ALL NIGHT! It lasted me through drinking a yard long cocktail, kissing my man constantly and even through a huge $15 cheeseburger. Im totally impressed. Even if you can't find this color, it is sold out on MAC website and my local counter was out also , you should try MAC's matte lipsticks in general because they are AMAZING. 

( check out those dark circles!ugh thanks Vegas lol)

MAC Quite Cute Collection

MAC Quite Cute Collection:
What I swooped up! 


I ended up buying only two items out of MAC's new Quite Cute collection that came out today but they were the only two things I had any interest in after checking out the collection in person. I don't know what I am suppose to do with a purple or green blush and while the super hot pink Candy Yum Yum lipstick caught my eye I decided to go with a more wearable light bubblegum pink. But the line is worth checking out at your local MAC counter especially if you need something to spice up your makeup routine. 

Amplified Creme Lipstick in Saint Germain: This super creamy and pigmented lipstick is great for a night on the town if you want to have all eyes on you. The "clean pastel pink" color is classically pretty but also attention grabbing at the same time because it's not a color worn everyday. Unless your name is Barbie of course. ( P.S. make sure your lips are smooth or apply some chapstick before lipstick because this lipstick color and consistency accentuates chapped dry lips.) $14.50

Mineralized Blush in Giggly: I can honestly admit to buying this blush simply because there is a heart in the middle of it. I have waaay too many light pink blushes already but that little shimmery plum heart in the middle did add a little extra glisten to my cheek bones that I appreciated. This is a good everyday blush color that has a little extra somthin' somthin' . $23
