Makeup Organization & Storage Update

Makeup Organization & Storage Update

About two years ago I posted about my makeup organization and storage (click here to check it out), so I thought it was about time for an update.  Not much has changed in regards to the vanity setup itself, but I have re-arranged quite a bit as I've accumulated more products over the years.  (Here comes the disclaimer: Please keep in mind that the goal of this post is the show how I've organized my products, it is not to show off my collection.)

NARS Laguna Bronzer Review & Swatches

NARS Laguna Bronzer Review & Swatches
NARS Laguna Bronzer
Today's product review is a classic cult favorite among makeup lovers, perhaps you've heard of NARS Laguna Bronzer ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.)?  Considering my mild obsession with bronzing powders, I'm not quite sure what took me so long to pull the trigger on purchasing this bad boy.  In a previous post where I reviewed Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer, I mentioned that I've been on a wild goose chase to find a dupe for my favorite bronzer of all time: MAC Nude on Board Pro Longwear Bronzer.  Stop the presses because I think we have a winner in NARS Laguna.  Let's check it out!

MAC Nude Lipsticks - My Top Picks

MAC Nude Lipstick, MAC Kinda Sexy, MAC Creme Cup, MAC Velvet Teddy, MAC Enchanted One, MAC Mocha, MAC Shanghai Spice, MAC Brave

In today's post, I'm bringing you my Top 7 Mac Nude Lipsticks.  Now, I must mention that I've been a MAC lipstick lover/hoarder ever since I purchased my first shade years ago - MAC Prolongwear Lipstick in Sweet Ever After.  After my initiation into the MAC Cosmetics world, I went a little bonkers and thought that it would be a good idea to purchase every newly released shade that the brand churned out. Looking back, I definitely didn't need all of those eye popping brights, dark reds, or cool pale pinks.  Don't get me wrong, I still wear and love each lipstick in my collection, however, those little pretties don't get nearly as much love as my MAC Nude Lipsticks.  

There are so many different variations of "nude" lipsticks...you've got your concealer-looking nudes, your peachy nudes, your pink nudes, your brown nudes...you get this gist.  For me, the ultimate "nude" lipstick is a my lips but better shade.  You'll see that all of the lipsticks I've included (besides Creme Cup) enhance the natural color of my lips.  My top 7 MAC Nude Lipsticks are my go-to, never fail shades.  They're the perfect compliment to any makeup look and they're non-fussy and easy to apply.  Let's have a closer look shall we?
