Shop Mac Cook Mac releases February 9th 2012 in the US, which consists of several new items from lipsticks, to eyeshadows, to blushes and mascaras. Here's a look at the pictures and overview of the CremeBlend Blushes from this new collection!

What do you think of the new shop mac cook mac creamblend blushes and studio creamblend powders? I think I'll probably pass on these. While the creamblend blushes look pretty, they aren't anything unique and the creamblend powders will be too dark for my fair skin. I do want to see a swatch of Florida, though.

Shop Mac Cook Mac Kissable Lipcolour Pictures, Overview - ( Flaunting It, So Vain, Scan-Delicous, Woo Me, Enchantee )

MAC is releasing the Shop, Shop, Shop - Cook, Cook, Cook, Collection on February 9th in the US. This is a very large collection consisting of metallic pigments, lipsticks, lip colours and so much more. I'm separating these out into individual posts since there is so much to talk about. This post is about the liquid lipcolours. There are 5 shades, all pinks/corals/mauves. Here's a look at the pictures and some shade descriptions!

Shop MAC Cook MAC Kissable Lipcolour $19 US
  • Flaunting It  - Grey mauve
  • So Vain - Muted dirty coral
  • Scan-delicious - Blue fuchsia
  • Woo Me - Light pinky nude
  • Enchantée - Light blue pink

MAC SO VAIN LIPCOLOUR, SHOP MAC COOK MAC

MAC WOO ME LIPCOLOUR, SHOP MAC COOK MAC


So what do you think of the new Shop Mac Cook Mac lipcolours? I'm happy for all the pinks because I wear pinks probably 90% of the time during spring and summer, sometimes I do go for nudes, but my lips are super pigmented, like almost red on their own, so pinks look like nudes on me as well a lot of times. I tend to go for the blue-toned pinks so they cool down my already brightly colored lips. I missed out on Enchantee before, so glad to see it back, may have to pick this one up. 


Which colors do you like the best? Will you be getting any? Is there a color missing you wish they would have promoted? I think they are missing a bright coral since they do have a coral lipstick with this collection it'd make sense to promo a liquid coral as well.

    I always love everything in the Spring collections! MAC has been doing horribly with the last few collection. But the Vera collection is right on for spring with trendy colors and exciting promo images! Finally, the true MAC is back and I missed it. So I'm excited for the pearlmatte powders, I really want both, but I think I may go for the coral one. The nail polish colors look amazing and I'm super excited to see some swatches of both play day and midsummer's dream. Coral is going to be huge this spring and I'm so happy there is a lot of coral in this collection. 


    I also like they have incorporated some purples, like the plushglass. I think a cool toned purple with a warm toned coral is a very neat way to offset the colors. Pink and purple go together well and since one is warm and one is cool, it balances each other out and makes it look more... just more. I'm not sure the word I'm looking for, but it makes for an interesting look!

    NYX Brush On Lash Glue

    I'm definately going to give this glue a chance and review it for everyone. It is a bit pricey for the small tube, $9 for only .16oz, but if it works great, then it will be worth it. Here's what NYX has to say about their new eye lash glue.

    NYX Boudoir Mascara Collection Overview - (Le Frou Frou, Pin-up Tease, Provocateur, Faux Lash, Le Chick Flick, Le Amoureux and Za Za Zu)

    NYX has released so many new products lately and I can't wait to try them out. Currently, they are only on the NYXCOSTMETICS website, so I'm trying to wait for them to appear on CherryCulture first. But from their new jumbo pencil colors, to new eyeliners and glosses, I don't know if I can wait haha!
    Anyway, here's an overview of the new NYX Boudoir Mascaras, retailing for only $6! 
    NYX Boudoir Mascara Collection

    Get longer and fuller lashes using the Boudoir Mascara Collection. Consisting of 7 formulas and distinctive wands, each mascara delivers full, lengthening, and curled lashes. Extend, volumize, and darken lashes with the wide range of mascaras in this collection and look bright-eyed for 24 hours smudge-free with beautiful lashes!
    Le Frou Frou (BMC01)
    Volumize and lengthen lashes. Dense dome brush to reach each lash.

    Pin-Up Tease (BMC02)
    To darken and curl lashes. Hard bristle combs to separate and curl lashes.

    Provocateur (BMC03)
    To volumize and separate lashes. Start with level 1 for heavy application then level 2 to lighten and separate.

    Faux Lashes (BMC04)
    Infused with fibers to volumize and extend lashes. Short bristle brush for dark and heavy application.  Ideal for bottom lashes.

    Le Chick Flick (BMC05)

    I think I want to try the Faux Lashes. I've enjoyed every fiber mascara I've tried, so I think this is a must on my list. I'm also interested in the Pin-Up Tease mascara. Which ones sound like something you'd like to try. Will you pick any of these up? At only $6 each, you can go crazy and try them all!

    ELF Studio Lotion Wipes Vanilla & Coconut - New ELF Products 2012

    ELF Studio Lotion Wipes in Vanilla & Coconut


    ELF has released some new products for 2012, one of those being the new Studio Lotion Wipes, which includes 20 Vanilla/Coconut wipes for only $3. They come in package similar to that of makeup remover wipes, except these are moisture wipes. You use them just like you would lotion - how neat are these!?


    ELF Studio Lotion Wipes Vanilla Coconut


    ELF says, "Hydrate your body with silky smooth moisture. The light and airy lotion moisturizes your skin, keeping it soft and supple all day long. These convenient Lotion Wipes are great for on-the-go travel and mess-free application. Just throw them in your purse or bag for soothing and refreshing moisture without carrying around a bulky lotion bottle. Infused with Aloe, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Soy, Ginkgo Biloba, Coconut Milk and Sweet Almond Oil to revitalize and nourish the skin. 20 wipes included."


    ELF Studio Lotion Wipes Vanilla Coconut


    These wipes would be perfect for traveling, rather than toting a heavy bottle of lotion. They are also perfect to keep in your bag or beside your bed at night for a last minute moisturizer without the mess of a lotion. If you've used makeup remover wipes, you know how much easier and more convenient towelette wipes are than the actual bottles of product, so these would  be very similar to those, but with lotion on them. 




    What do you think of this product? Will you be trying it out? Leave your comments below!

She mentions her favorite has always been pink lipstick and always wears it even on her days off at home.

    Julep Maven Box Giveaway and Review - Contest Closed

    Julep was kind enough to send me a sample Maven Box to review for my readers. Julep is a nail polish and nail care company and the Maven program gives you access to some of the best Julep products each month. You can take a simple style quiz on their website and you will receive a box filled with their nail polishes and nail related each month, tailored for you based on your style quiz results.


    Julep is also going to giveaway one box to a lucky reader. Simply comment below that you'd like to enter the giveaway, I'll use random.org to pick a winner and Julep will send the winner a free Maven Box! You must be a follower of my blog, of course.


    ****The Julep Giveaway Winner Is Chelsey!!***
    - I have contacted you by email (the address listed on your profile). Congrats!!


    I also have a 50% off discount code (making the box $9.99) just for my readers to try out your first Maven Box and see if you like it. At checkout enter CODE: GLAMATRONIC


    Now, here are some pictures and a review of the box I received.


    Julep Maven Box
    Above is a picture of the contents of my Julep Maven Box. This package includes a full size facial for hands scrub, which is an exfoliant that removes dead skin, leaving your skin super soft. There are two full-size nail polishes in Whitney, a taupey gray with a hint of purple, and Nicole, a red with tons of shimmer. There's also a jar of cute, silver star nail art that you can put on-top of any polish and seal with a topcoat. Finally, there were two samples of Julep hand cream.


    Julep Whitney and Julep Nicole
    Swatch of Julep Whitney
    Overall, I did enjoy each product. I tested out the polishes and hand scrub each for one week. The Whitney polish wore pretty well. There was some gentle tip wear after two days, but I didn't notice any major chipping until the fourth day. And by day six it was time for a new polish, so this polish did well with wearing. The majority of polishes last five to seven days for me, so this one was right in the middle as far as wearing time. As far as quality of pigmentation and thickness, it was really great. I only had to use one coat for it to be opaque and it dried quickly and with a very glossy finish, which I love.



    Quick Swatch of Julep Nicole


    Julep Hand Cream


    The Julep Polish Nicole didn't wear as well as Whitney, but was still very pretty. I noticed chipping on day three and by day four to five it was time for a new polish. So it doesn't do the best on wearing time, but often polishes with a lot of shimmer, such as Nicole has, do chip more quickly than creme polishes, like Whitney. Highly shimmered polishes usually wear only three to six days on me, so again, this shade wore as normal for me. Pigmentation of Nicole was great. One coat and it was opaque and it dried very quickly, in about one minute.


    Julep Facial For Hands
    The Julep Facial Hand Scrub is amazing. It left my hands feeling sooo soft and smooth. This was my favorite product in the box, which is unusual for me because usually I'm all about the nail polish, so it shows it must be a great product. If you have sensitive skin do be gentle with the scrub because it can hurt a bit if you rub too hard because it has little rough bits to do the exfoliating. For me personally, I'd like for it to have a little less bit less of the rough pieces just because I do have sensitive skin and I think the exfoliating job would still be the same. However, if you have coarse hands, though, you probably wouldn't even notice this and will see the greatest change as well. Follow up with a lotion afterwards and your hands will feel smoother than ever.


    Julep Facial For Hands
    Some notes important notes about Julep. Their nail polishes are free of DBP, Toluene and formaldehyde and they also donate $1 from every nail polish to organizations that support and empower women.


    I think the Julep Maven Box Program is neat program and is a great way to try out new products each month. It's nice to get something in the mail besides bills and it's nice having a surprise because you can choose not to know what is in each box. It's also an amazing deal at the normal price of $19.99, I believe each box is valued at around $40 give or take. And with my coupon code-glamatronic, you do get the 50% off making it only $9.99, which is an amazing deal to take advantage of so you can try out the Maven Boxes and see if you like them.
