My Paradise

Hey Lovelies!

As I mentioned on my previous post, I only got 1 item of MAC's Surf Baby collection.

My Paradise cheek powder is a gorgeous peachy coral with a gold hibiscus overspray.

 Natural light

I love the packaging, an off-white case with a hint of shimmer, I'm not crazy about the logo on the lid, I think it hides the beautiful gold hibiscus a bit, but once I open it...hello gorgeous! :)

 Left to right: blush / gold overspray / mixed together

The gold hibiscus overspray is indeed a thick layer that won't wear off on the first swipe, I rubbed off a bit of one of the petals and it did take me a bit to do so.

This is a gorgeous blush!
Just for fun, I compared swatches of other coral blushes I own:

Left to Right: My Paradise, Tarte Tipsy, Illamasqua Excite, Milani Mai Tai



Flip Flops and Makeup

Hi Lovelies!
About a week or so ago I went to Old Navy when they were having their $1.00 flip flop sale, yup I'm a sucker for flip flops.

But first,I stopped by the CCO located on the same mall to check out what they had in stock and got a couple of things:

Got 2 eyeshadows Pollinator and Firecracker
Pollinator was a LE e/s from  MAC's Naked Honey collection in 2009

 It's a pretty peach with a little shimmer (Frost)

 Firecracker, also a LE e/s from the To the Beach collection last year

Firecracker is a red-orange coral (Veluxe Pearl)
From top to bottom: Firecracker, Pollinator (w/flash)

Same order as above (no flash)

Lastly, that same week I picked up the only item from the Surf Baby collection..

My Paradise Cheek Powder is a gorgeous peachy coral with a gold hibiscus overspray
