M.A.C Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover Review

One of my favorite eye makeup removers is Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover but at its price tag, I was always looking for an alternative that worked just as well but at a more affordable cost.

Lily Pily Jewelry Review

There are so many small fashion brands you can shop online from. I found Lily Pily through Instagram and was interested in their jewelry, although they also have clothes and other accessories as well.

I was looking for chunky bracelets and bought two Bugambilia Bracelet in Pink which has light pink, lavender and white stones, and Black which has solid black, grey and white stones. I love how the stones are big and gives a luxe look and the toggle clasps make it easy to put it on and take it off.

I also bought two Glittery Fashion Cuffs in Pink-Purple and White. They come in other colors as well but I thought these compliment the two other bracelets I bought. Obviously, they resemble Hermes bracelets but in a trendier style and cheaper material. The clasp doesn't close very well, sometimes it opens up when I'm wearing and have to keep an eye on it so it doesn't come off but I think the glitter has a fun, sparkle effect that adds a glamorous touch to an outfit.

An outfit I wore with the bracelets on my 25th birthday last year:

As you can see, I like stacking these bracelets on the arm that I wear my watch on for night, party looks. Stacked jewelry, or "arm candy" is a big trend right now and so if you like fashionable jewelry at an affordable price, check out Lily Pily.

M.A.C Artificially Wild Collection

For Fall 2014, M.A.C Cosmetics released Artificially Wild Collection which consisted of hues in camouflage, earthy tones for the eyes, cheeks and lips. What drew me to this collection was the limited edition Eyeshadows, all four of which I bought:
  • Artificial Earth: Satin finish; light mauve pink with subtle shimmer
  • Marsh: Satin finish; medium olive green
  • Natural Wilderness: Satin finish; medium mustard yellow-brown
  • Stony: Satin finish; light-medium neutral silver-gray
Satin finish Eyeshadows are one of my favorite formulas from M.A.C because it's matte enough to add depth to the eyes but has a touch of shimmer or a pearlescent sheen so the color isn't completely flat looking. They generally have a smooth texture that's easy to blend and with good color payoff.
