Viva Glam Gaga II

After the success of the first Viva Glam Gaga, MAC has decided to develop another shade; sadly this means the Viva Glam Gaga, and Viva Glam Cyndi will now be discontinued. I am now left with the predicament of 'To Buy or Not To Buy' the Cyndi Lipstick/Lipglass. It looks so unique, if I don't buy it, it is likely I'll regret it and it goes to a good cause. However, do I need this colour? I really cannot decide.

However, the Viva Glam Gaga II is a less bold colour this time.

As far as I'm concerned, I will be picking this up! Will you? Is the Viva Glam Cyndi worth picking up?

MAC Pro Longwear Foundation: Review

After purchasing the MAC Pro Longwear when it was first released, I have now almost finished the bottle, so I thought it was about time to review it. I really liked this foundation at first although as the weather grew colder I found it highlighted dryer skin, which was slightly upsetting.


  • Lasts a decent amount of time, around 4-6 hours without primer or a setting powder. (Like the name suggests) 
  • Gives a blank canvas
  • Looks flawless for the most part
  • Available in a wide variety of shades as all M.A.C foundations and concealers are. 
  • Contains SPF

  • Highlights dry skin
  • Can sometimes look patchy 
  • Thick (Some people could find this difficult to work with) 
I was debating whether to repurchase this, but I think I'm going to look around for a while, and I'm also desperate to try out the Nars Sheer Glow and Laura Mercier Silk Creme. Maybe MAC's Mineralize Foundation. 
What do you think about this foundation?
Let me know in the comments your HG foundation!

Mac Cham Pale Haul

After anticipating this collection since seeing the first press images I couldn't wait to get to my MAC. Unfortunately, half of the things I wanted were sold out! Luckily I picked up two of the things I wanted the most! 
Caviar Dreams Eyeshadow Quad and Vintage Selection Paint Pot
I'm considering heading to another MAC to see if the have the Chromographic Pencil and the Soiree Nail Polish. I'll try to swatch/ review! 
Au revoir xxx
