The Mac Giambattista Villa Collection features five lipsticks,(Bianca,Tats,Charlotte,Margherita and Eugenie )and a shimmery potted gloss , but it’s the packaging that is sure to have each one sold out in minutes. Each Lipstick comes in a coloured packaging reflective of the shade inside,a detail that we haven’t seen from Mac before and one that lends a beautiful touch to any makeup vanity.Each shade has a Matte texture, with gorgeous pigmentation and long-lasting wear. If you’re already a matte lip lover then this lipstick should have your attention.So I got four shades from this collection.TATS,MARGHERITA,CHARLOTTE AND EUGENIE.
Tats – A bright hot pink,with a matte finish.Am not a fan of bright pink,but this hot pink is gorgeous..
Margherita – An orange-y peach,with a matte finish.I was thinking this would be my least favourite ,but surprisingly I love this shade.It applies smoothly and also very pigmented.
Charlotte – A warm red,also with a matte finish.This is absolutely my favourite from the collection.Its too gorgeous.
Eugenie – A deep burgundy,with a matte finish.I love dark lipsticks and this is a beautiful deep shade.
Most of the shades are extremely wearable, except for Bianca B(not pictured here), which would most likely only suit the palest skin tones .. The rest are quite universally flattering and they are also very pigmented. The outer colour of the lipstick tube matches the inner colour but has the same shape and feel as a regular tube of Mac Lipstick.

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden.This eyeshadow primer is bomb.
If you own Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original you will understand how difficult it is to blend it in order not to have patches or lets say white particles,which can be frustrating and difficult to blend your eyeshadow smoothly.So I was on the internet the other day when this cute one popped up and got my attention,I immediately ordered and after using it for the first time,I got hooked…
I think Urban Decay Primer Potion Eden in this packaging,is exclusive to Sephora,am not sure,but its permanent in a different tube.Eden is yellow-toned,it covers any discolouration on the lid and blends beautifully,there is no white particles whatsoever,its matte and increases the colour vibrancy of eyeshadows…Its will keep your eyeshadow intact without creasing all day long.It comes with a wand which I love so much and makes it easy to control the amount of the product you need,which is very little.
I love it.I hear a lot of people including myself complain about the particles Urban decay Original leaves behind,this post is for you guys.Its worth trying.
Mac recently launched five New Limited-Edition formulations of their popular Prep & PrimeFix+ water mist in different scent,ROSE,CUCUMBER,YUZU,COCONUT and LAVENDER.Also the bottle that holds the Fix+ water mist comes in different colours unlike the original that comes in white transparent bottle with black cap.Just like the original,each formula is infused with a blend of detoxifying green tea,chamomile and cucumber,which boost the skin with vitamins, minerals and moisture. It can be used before makeup, to finish makeup, to refresh makeup, or just for a skin boost.It can also be used to dampen a Beauty Blender,a brush or to make any eyeshadow more intense.Besides the scent, they pretty much feel and work exactly like the original.
Mac Prep and Prime Fix+ is one of my most coveted makeup essential,am obsessed with this product.Its a must-have.I can’t begin to tell you how much I love it.One thing for sure is I can’t do without them.I personally like to use it after applying my makeup to refresh my face,because I use a lot of matte products that can make my face look flat,also to pick up any excess powder and create a more hydrated finish.I also like to use it to dampen my beauty blender or brush just so it applies my makeup smoothly.
This is the Mac Prep & Prime Fix+ (original).Comes in a white transparent bottle with black cap.
This is the new.I picked up Mac Prep and Prime Fix+ Rose which smells like rose.
And Mac Prep and Prime Fix+ Cucumber also smells like cucumber..They are both refreshing and the scent is subtle.I know some people will hesitate on getting this product due to the fact that it has fragrance,Because they react to it.But you should know that the fragrance is extremely small quantity and you alone can perceive the scent,others can’t ..
This is limited edition,it comes in two sizes and its worth every penny,so go for it before its sold out.
Morphe Brushes.Watched one of Jackieaina YouTube videos last month,she listed some of this brushes as her favourite and I needed some good eyeshadow and highlighter brushes,so I immediately ordered..

E27,from the Elite collection.A fluffy crease brush.
M502,Tapered crease brush.From the Flawless collection.
E28,Tapered crease brush.Elite collection
E17,Also from the Elite collection.Crease precision blender..Real Techniques Bold Metal Collection.I love gold and silver packaging.This brushes are cute and luxurious.The brushes from the Bold Metal Collection are numbered.This is 300,it’s so soft. According to Real Techniques,it’s a blush brush..Am not sure what am going to use this for,probably to dust out excess setting powder from my under eyes.but definitely not for blush.I love my blush brush round and a little fluffy..This is 201.immediately I got this brush,I tested it on my crease and it was kind of painful,it’s a little hard..Am going to cleanse it before using,to make it soft.. This is it Guys.Let me know what you think.Am looking for a good fan brush tho.Any suggestion? please let me know..
Once I love a particular lipstick,I like to have my basic lipstick shades from that brand.My basic shades are nude,red,pink,purple and a dark deep shade..I already have a pink shade(Kelly) and a light purple shade(Dominique).Am not sure I swatched Dominique on the blog,but you can check my Instagram page @all_thinzbeauty,its so easy and quick to post pictures there,lol..So I got Julie(nude) and Annabella(red)..
I always want more from this collection whenever I get a new shade..They are creamy,pigmented,smooth,long-lasting and they apply seamlessly on the lip.And I also love the sleek packaging.I love Nars Cosmetics.
This is Julie – Pinkish nude.Beautiful nude.
Annabella – Poppy red.This red is everything..
One more shade to complete my collection,a dark deep shade.They have 40 shades for this collection,it’s so hard to pick..Have a lovely and fun weekend guys.Dont forget to like..
