I finally got my hands on a couple of products from the MAC Vibe Tribe collection which is this years main summer collection. As you can see the packaging is super pretty, and so are the actual products.
Of course I had to get one of the lipsticks. I chose the brightest one (no surprise there) and it’s this beautiful orange-red shade called Painted Sunset. It’s an amplified finish, so it’s really creamy and pigmented. I wore it yesterday and it’s the perfect red lip for summer.
I also couldn’t resist the Gleamtones powder which is a new type of powder from MAC. It’s called Dunes At Dusk and it’s a gorgeous highlighter. I guess you could also use the four shades individually as eye shadows, but I’ve been wearing all four colours swirled together as a highlighter and I’m so happy that it’s light enough for my pale skin. You could obviously also wear the different shades individually as highlighters or mix two or three of them together. So many options. I love it!
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The sweatshirt really inspires me to use colour in my make-up look. This time I went for hot pink and lime green yellow (or whatever you would call that colour).
(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection (shades: White Chocolate + Milk Chocolate + Champagne Truffle) + Collection 2000 Colour Intense Solo eye shadow in 11 Key Lime Pie, mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – Sephora Long lasting kohl pencil in 07 Infinite beige. Lips: MAC Talking Points lip pencil + MAC No Faux Pas lipstick)
Here’s what I wore Wednesday April 20. Some days I just feel like wearing all black, but I still like that this sweatshirt adds a bit of colour to the outfit. I also think the sweatshirt and the sneakers are a perfect match.

Here’s the make-up I wore Saturday April 16. I went to a summer/beach themed party and I didn’t have time to take pictures of my outfit, but I managed to snap a few pictures of my make-up. I wore shadows from my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette for the first time that night, and I fell in love instantly.

I’ve been seeing cushion foundations everywhere online lately, so when I found the L’Oréal Nude Magique Cushion dewy glow foundation at the drugstore, I decided to give it a go. I’m going to give my first impressions of this product, and I don’t know if this will turn into a new series on my blog, but it might:)
I’ve been wearing the foundation for the first time today, so these really are my first impressions. First off, I love the packaging. It’s so cute, but also quite handy to travel with, I reckon. The compact contains a little flat sponge, but I used my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge to apply the foundation. I don’t think I’ve ever applied my foundation as easy and quick as I did this morning which is a big plus. As the name suggests the foundation is indeed very dewy and glowy (in the picture beneath I’m only wearing a none-illuminating primer and the foundation). I’m wearing shade 1 Porcelain which is the lightest shade, and I think it matches my pale skin well. Right now as I’m writing I’ve been wearing the foundation for about 10,5 hours. I’m obviously wearing other products (powders) on top, but as far as I can tell, the foundation still looks fairly good, so I’m happy with this product so far. As I’ve already mentioned these are only my first impressions, but I’m looking forward to wear this foundation a few more times to see if those impressions stick.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Even though a black outfit gives you the perfect opportunity to play around with more colourful make-up, I decided to go down a more neutral road and I really like it.
(Eye make-up: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Créme De Rose 91, eye shadows – NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette (shade: Soft Light) + the Balm Nude’tude eye shadow palette (shades: Sultry) + Wet n Wild Color Icon eye shadow palette in Comfort Zone (shades: definer 2. row down + browbone 1. row down) + MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Lightscapade on browbone, mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – Sephora Long lasting kohl pencil in 07 Infinite beige. Lips: Essence lipliner in 11 In the Nude + NYX Matte lipstick in Euro Trash)
Here’s what I wore Friday April 15. This is the kind of outfit you can never go wrong with in my opinion. I was out all day (and night) in this outfit, and it was really comfortable and still looked nice.
