Some new Haul Pictures

Hey guys!

In the past few weeks I got some new MACCIES and I'll show it to you today.

In the Gallery Quad: This is from the Make Up Art Cosmetics LE, designed by Richard Philips, like the Photo Realism Quad, too.
Some say that colours are chalky and don't have much payoff, but this is not true.
You should never judge an Eyeshadow by handswatches. On my hands, swatches are always sheer and not very impressing. But on lid, with a base, these colours look definately NOT chalky! They are really beautiful and I must confess, surprisingly I prefer this quad to Photo Realism. Those colours are perfect and so gorgeous especially for dark brown or green eyes. Believe me! lol. This Quad shouldn't be put down so much.

I'll do a look with this quad to show you, how gorgeous the colours really are.

Nymphette Lipglass: I wanted to have this since I saw it on a counter in August. Finally I got it! I like this, it is a rose but also lil bit peachy colour with golden shimmer in it. I couldn't catch this effect on my pictures, sorry :-(

Here are some swatches:

Sorry, you can see all my discolorations around my mouth area. I didn't have any make up on.

Goldmine Eyeshadow: I thought about getting this when I saw a few tutorials by lovely Zerin. This is a Desi Colour which fits nice to nearly everything, especially browns, reds/pinks and greens.
Prussian Eyeshadow: I'm not the biggest fan of blue Eyeshadows, but this is the sort of blue I really love. It's a Matte² Finish and very pigmented.

Because yesterday (September 25) was my 23th birthday, I got some money and of course I bought some new MAC items, lol.

Breezy Blush: Breezy is a rose-berry coloured sheertone blush. Berry colours are very popular this fall. I didn't try it out on my cheeks yet (I will do this afternoon) but in the pan and on my hand it looks so gorgeous.

Girlie Eyeshadow: This is the old rose shade I looked for a long time. Yippie! lol
Omega Eyeshadow: I wanted a neutral beige which comes close to my natural lid colour (or a little bit darker). This will be perfect for any neutral look.

Ok, that's all for today!

Hey guys,

Im' so sorry, but I won't blog very frequently in the next time. I'm worrying about my beloved grandmother who has cancer and we don't know what will happen in the next months :-(

I hope you understand, that I don't feel like doin Make Up or anything at the moment...

Please pray for my grandmother.

Yours, Sisa

Photo Realism & Make Up Art Cosmetics LE

Hey beauties!

Finally the MAC Make Up Art Collections LE came out in Germany! Everyone raved about the Photo Realism Quad and since I LOVE green eyeshadows, I had to get it. I also got Young Thing Lipglass from this LE and today I created a look with it.


MAC Mineralize Satinfinish Foundation NC30
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Medium Plus
MAC Select Moisturecover Concealer NW25 (undereye circles)
MAC Studio Finish Concealer NC30 (blemishes and discolorations)

Alverde Eyeshadow Base
MAC Paint Pot Soft Ochre (base)
MAC Photo Realism Quad:
MAC Fresh Approach Eyeshadow (lid)
MAC Image Maker Eyeshadow (crease + outer corner)
MAC Grey Range Eyeshadow (darken crease + lower lashline)
MAC Photo Realism Eyeshadow (inner corner + highlight)
Coastal Scents Gel Liner true black
L'Oréal Contour Khôl black
Essence Multi Action Mascara
Some cheap Asian brand false lashes

MAC Brow Set Show-Off
Eyebrowz Browpowder Soft Black + Jet Black

Coastal Scents Contouring Palette
MAC Blush Well Dressed
MAC MSF Smooth Merge (cheekbone highlight)

MAC Prep+Prime Lips
Alverde Lipliner Terra
MAC Lipglass Young Thing (LE)

This is the "famous" Photo Realism Quad:

Photo Realism: A light golden shade, it's like ricepaper with a hint of green in it
Fresh Approach: This is a light, cool minty green. If you have my complexion (or even darker) you have to pat it on to "notice" the colour. But it's pretty though.
Image Maker: This is my personal favourite in this quad. It is a mid-tone grey-green, a special colour I'd say, but so wearable!
Grey Range: I find it a little bit comparable to Antique Green Pigment (I should make some swatches comparing them!), I really love shades like that.

By the way... after doing my eye make up, I had a HORRIBLE accident! The Quad fell down on the floor and the Grey Range Eyeshadow broke into pieces!!! Waaah... I picked all the powder up (luckily it broke into 4 or 5 big chunks), mixed it with alcohol, did it back into the pan, let it dry and pressed it... it worked, fortunately... Sometimes I hate me and my dullness, lol

Swatches are made on NC30-35 skin

Young Thing Lipglass:

This is a very light beige shade. If you have lips just a few more pigmented than mine, you can't wear it alone (or you would look awful, lol).

Ok, so that's all for today!
Have a good time

IMPORTANT: A Question to you...

Hey guys!

Since a few days I'm thinking about expanding my blog to a multi-topic blog including blogspots about MAKE UP/HAIR/BODY AND SKINCARE, COOKING, THOUGHTS, CATS, GOSSIP, and CLOTHES (esp. for the not-so-slim-ones, lol)...

What do you think about? Would you be interested in these topics or should my blog stay a make-up only blog?

I hope I get a lot of comments with your opinions...

Nochmal kurz in Deutsch: Würde euch ein Multidingsbums-Blog auch mit Beiträgen über so kosmetische Sachen allgemein (also Make Up, Haarzeugs, Körperpflege usw.), Kochen, Gedanken, Katzen, Klatsch&Tratsch und Klamotten interessieren?

Bitte sagt mir eure Meinung dazu :-)
