My favorite products last December, MAC shopping & MOTW

My apology to be late with this one, ladies. December always is the most busy month of the year; everybody is busy about their year-end closings, company accounts, financial statements as well as everybody is stressed out. There were tons of christmas gifts and greeting cards to purchase & to send all around the globe, there were the New Year´s giveaway prizes to be shopped and sent to Delhi and finally a lot of general year-closing work for me to do. Furthermore the weather was pretty bad for a good time management, it was snowing all the time and I spent hours and hours in traffic jams :silly: I managed to pick up some stuff from two MAC limited edtions at the MAC Pro Store in Cologne but had no time to swatch them or even take a look at, except of a few products I already used for make up. There were two interesting LE launches in Europe the last weeks, the Stylishly Yours LE on the 27th of December 2010 and the Mickey Contractor LE on the 3rd of January 2011. MAC also launched the Cham Pagne limited edition at the beginning of the new year but I skipped that collection since I already have tons of similar products. As I remember some of you mentioned they would like to try MAC Khol Feline – it got repromoted in the Cham Pagne edition so you would have the chance to get your hands on it soon :))

Stylishly Yours LE shopping. Love this collection. :heart:

MAC Stylishly Yours

Curious: All the former collection informations and previews announced Dark Diversion LE to be part of the collection and the fluidline was released in the US and Canada, but not in Europe – I have no idea, why. Instead of Dark Diverision there was Microviolet launched within the collection in Europe and I have no information if the Indian release will include Dark Diverision or not. ?:)

Now I finally have some time to take a look at the purchased stuff and I will send detailed articles with swatches, photos and reviews on the products to Rati soon. :))

For the manicure of the week I asked my boyfriend to choose one colour he would like to see on my nails at the party we were invited to, since that day I was stressed out and indecisive not only about the laquer, but about everything… :silly: and he choosed Color Club Wort the Risque

Worth the Risque is a holographic polish from Color Club, a pearlish silvery-white laquer with a hint of bright royal blue undertone and soft shimmering, holographic rainbow-effects, depending on the light. Pretty hard to capture on photos but an awesome eye-catcher. Due to their colour spectrum I love holographic polishes, but most of the top coats afflict the holographic effect. So they are often apllied without a top coat and this is not ideal; no top coat means getting tipwear quickly – but the effect is worth the risque 😀 that you have to remove the polish after two or three days.

My December faves 🙂

  • RBR (Rouge Bunny Rouge) Highlighting Liquid in Seas of Illumination
  • OPI Burlesque polishes in Let Me Entertain You and Show It and Glow It!
  • ALVA baked powder in 01 Light
  • MAC Ombres Duo Blush in Ring`O´Roses – Breath of Plum
  • p2 lashes from Meet Me at 12:30 edition
  • MAC Dare to Wear lipglass in Ban This!
  • MAC Dazzleglass Cream in Radiant Jewels
  • MAC Khol Feline
  • Estée Lauder Lash Primer Plus
  • Catrice Eyebrow Set
  • MAC lipstick Vivacious

If you have any questions about the products – just ask :))

Last but not least: Rads had some questions about the MAC glitters and the last two days I tried to make some photos but the light is so bad actually that I did not manage to capture any glitter performance on cam. I had to push light and contrast with a graphic tool on the MAC products pictures and December faves picture, since they were too dark as well and still the result is not good. To show the glitter effects I need sunlight or professional studio light and I will make the photos as soon as possible :-* :-* :-*

  1. OMG…so sweet of you Tatjana…heheheeee…Pinch was right..they are a pain to photograph 😀 😀 😀 I saw swatches of a cream something base ..cream colour base…??..(sorry..I am really not that up to date with MAC) from Stylishy Yours in another blog..Movie Star red..are those among what you have bought?

    1. Yes, in fact it it the only CCB (Cream Color Base) I bought – purchased a backup of it as well. The other interesting CCBs in the collection are permanent anyway so I didn´t pick them up that day. Movie Star Red is an amazing full-force cherry red, very brilliant and high pigmented colour … love it :heart: :heart: :heart:

      1. I want to get it..hope it comes out in India too 😀 Which other one did you get? I remembered only the Movie Star red…there was one other one I liked …from swatches I have seen…but forgot the name 🙂

        1. There is only one more limited CCB in the collection: Trickle Me Pink, a creamy bright pink, but I didn´t pick it up because the colour is easy to mix with permanent CCBs. The other two CCBs in the collection are permanent pro products 🙂

      1. It´s my favorite German drugstore brand :))
        In my oppinion the best drugstore quality available in Europe :waytogo:

        1. They have launched several new permanent products…. the brow powder is amazing… but they only launched this one browpowder duo, kind of muted, greyish brwon and dirty blond colour :nerd: They def. need to launch a dark brown/black one :present: :present: :present:

          You are going to Germany in Ferbruar, aren´t you?

  2. I love your nails, Tatjana…wonder how you maintian them. ?:) The nail paint is absolutely gorgeous. :woot: :woot:

    I am wearing the radiant jewels lipglass these days. It brightens up my dull wintery face :toothygrin:

    I am super curious about the mickey contractor stuff you got 😛

      1. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: My hubby is quite confused already :jiggy2: :jiggy2: :jiggy2: :jiggy2: :jiggy2:

    1. Thanks a lot Rati :-* :-* :-*
      I have no big routine in nailcare and use only very few nail care products, so I am afraid it´s all about genetics and the fact that my Mom was giving me Calcim Sandoz forte every day to drink :yahoo: She always says: The best beautycare starts with the dishes and I have to agree.

      I guess the Radiant Jewels DGC fits your type lovely… it is the right colour spectrum and should look amazing on you. Lucky me, it´s winter time, would not wear on a daily basis in summer time 😛

  3. :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: Tatjana………….I am drooling all those thing that you bought……………everything looks so good…………… :heart:

    1. My boyfriend mentioned this comment lit: “If she could see our place she would have said: Tatjana… you are very good at picking all the nailpaints” Well… lol 😆

      :dance: :dance: :dance:

  4. hey tatjana……….just love ur nails………how well u have maintained them and the colour is so so pretty….. looks fab on u………. 🙂

    1. Thanks a lot Tommy :))
      The name means “stormbride” and in Croatia, where I come from, it is pronounced TATjana – first syllable dominant short. But here in Germany everybody pronounce it TatJAAAAAna and I got used to that as well :chic:

  5. superb haul!!! :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: btw.. it is cham’pale’ no!? u mentioned it as cham’pagne’.. ?:) 😛

    1. TYVM sireesha :)) :))

      No, no Cham Pale on the pics :blush:
      I skipped the Cham Pale collection since I have a lot of similar products already.

      1. i guess you did not get what i told 😛 check the spelling of cham pale in the last line of first paragraph..u wrote it as cham it? 😀

        1. Ummmmm LOL ….. 😀 :blush: :blush: :evilgrin: :drunk:
          Well…. I didn´t recognize that typo…. and I love champagne 😛 😛 :cheers:
