TOP 10 Mac Lipsticks

Hi my dolls! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! so today i will be sharing with you my top 10 Mac lipsticks(for now). I have been a huge fan of Mac cosmetics for a very long time and i especially love their lipsticks. Call me corny but i believe they all have different personalities and i absolutely love their funky names ;D... Over time i have come to acquire quite a few of them and shortlisting down to ten was a bit of a task but i did it.... So no more rambling.... MEET THE BAD GURLS ;D

angel,freckletone,shygirl,vegasvolt,impassioned,vivaglamnicki,up the amp,girl about town,pink nouveau, ruby woo
This is a soft, pale, pink lipstick that is a frost finish. It is light,creamy and glossy with no frosty look to it actually. I got this lippie for a reason most of us already know. This happens to be KIM KARDASHIAN'S favourite mac lipstick and i just had to get it and i love it as well.;D I apply this lightly cuz it can look a little to light on my skin tone but i know how to work with it.
This is a peachy nude lippie and also a lustre finish. Freckletone is very glossy and moisturizing on the lips and its one of those lipsticks i dont even need a mirror to apply.. For a lustre it is quite pigmented and with one or two layers of this your good. I usually wear this with a smokey eye.
This is described as a “creamy neutral coral beige” and has a Cremesheen finish. It’s a soft beige peach with a hint of pink. Shygirl is very creamy and moisturizing on the lips and also one of mac's top seling lipsticks. I also love to wear this with a smokey eye or bronze/coppery eyes.
This is described as a brightened orange-coral with a creamy, opaque finish.This is an amplfied finish which means it is very pigmented and packs a lot of color. It is a full coverage, intense color that definitely brightens the face as well and works particularly well on warmer skin tones.  My sister got this for me by accident and i fell in love with this anyways as i was gettig into coral/orangey lippies at the time. Ladies if you looking for that coral, This is SHE!! ;D
This is described as a nearly neon pink-red with a hint of coral warmth. It has an amplified creme finish. It is creamy and applies smoothly on the lips.When i first got this i was afraid to wear this out of the house because i thought it was a bit too bright and then i wore it out one day and got so much compliments and ive been hooked ever since. It brightens up the whole face instantly with just one swipe. I like to wear this with a super winged eyeliner.
This is described as a vibrant medium pink with subtle yellow undertones that gives a kiss of coral. It has a satin finish, which means it has a semi-matte finish. I am a huge fan of Nicki Minaj and didnt pick up PINK FRIDAY because that lipstick was just o_o...*PAUSE*... Anyways this was a gift from a friend and i ABSOLUTELY LOOOOOVE THIS! Just one swipe and ur lips are poppin! I try not to go too crazy with the eyes when i wear this. It looks good on everyone so if you ever wanted to get this liptick and though twice you dont have to worry go get urs ...BARBIE!! ;) haha
This is described as a creamy, opaque purple with a bit of reddish-violet tones to it. It is an amplified finish and a very sexy "out of the ordinary" color. I always get loads of compliments whenever i wear this and i would definitely recommend to anyone on the hunt for a great purple lipstick. 
This is described as  a vibrant shade of darkened, bright fuchsia pink. It has an amplified creme finish, which makes it a very creamy, opaque shade. This has to be one of Mac's most popular lipsticks and i was drawn to it firstly for the name and then the color..:D It is suitable on all skintones and i like to wear this with blue or purple smokey eyemakeup.
This is described as a cool-toned, blue-based light-medium pink. It is also a satin finish. Pink nouveau was the first pink lipstick i got from MAC and i absolutely love it. It is a great balance between Saint germain(which i want so badly but know to stay away from) and girl about town.  It is very pigmented and can be a little bit drying after a while so pls prep ur lips before swipping this on ladies..Overall it is a beautiful, bright,barbie doll
This is described as a blue-based red with a matte finish and nearly opaque color coverage. This has to be Mac's best selling lipstick of all time.I dont know any mac addict that desnt own this.  It’s a very retro "throwback" red if i may say.The staying power is great and i love to wear this with nude eyemakeup.
I must inform you my loves that this lipstick is very DRYING and somewhat hard to apply. Be sure to exfoliate your lips and use and prep them before applying.

can you guess which is which?? :D i also threw in one last swatch there, can u guess which?
Thats it dolls! My top 10 Mac lipsticks. I promise to do an updated favourites cuz im pretty sure they will change soon.So what are your favourite mac lippies? Do let me know in the comments below.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as i loved making it.

Mosaic/ Powder Bronzer Review

Hi my dolls! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. So sorry i havent posted in a while. I have been going crazy looking for my internet stick. Still havent found it but i have alternative internet now so yaay!:) . 
Today i want to share with you some bronzers i picked up from a shop recently.I actually  went in to pick up some lipglosses (which i will be reviewing soon) and these caught my eye.The funny thing is they are from a no name brand so i cannot tell you what company makes them but if anyone has them or knows where they are from please let me know.
With flash
They come in a black compact case and a mirror also. I really like how shimmery they are and are very great for highlighting the nose and cheekbones. I use the mosaic one as a blush and i use the one named 'KENYA' as a highlight powder and i must say i am really impressed.
 I will post some makeup looks with these so you can see how they look 'IN ACTION'. ;D

 PLEASE my loves if you know where these are from do not hesitate to let me know in the comment section below. Do have an amazing weekend dolls!

KONGA Review/ Revlon Mini Haul

Hi Dolls!! Hope everyone is doing fine. Today i will be doing a review of the newly launched product site. KONGA!!! I have so many great things to say about them i dont even know where to begin so here goes...... I came across the site online and decided to check it out and knowing me i went straight to the beauty section. They had some great products in stock. After much speculation i decided to go ahead, sign up and order something (Revlon PINK POUT lipstick) and to my surprise their response was prompt and my package arrived. The service was so quick and the dispatch rider was very polite and friendly( Customer service is very KEY)!! I was very impressed and ever since then i have become a faithful Kongaite!! ;D.I believe they are going to be around for a very long time if they keep up  this amazing service.They also offer "PAY ON DELIVERY"!!!! How cool is that? This is not my first purchase from them but this post is going to feature my latest purchase and a review of others i have picked up earlier.

ALSOOO: They tweeted at me and gave me a free N2000 voucher for sounding off about them on twitter!! That was too sweet. ;)  Thanks once again guys!!!Now unto some pictures.....

Nice and neat packaging with the Konga sticker on top :)
Revlon Colorburst lipglosses in Strawberry, hot pink ice, orchid . Revlon superlustrous lipgloss in Pink whisper, Pink pop, Red Cherry 113 lashes

I must say i have been a fan of Revlon products for a very long time and i absolutely love them. The lipglosses are very moisturizing, lightweight and pack a lot of shine. Non sticky, easy to apply and can be worn alone or over lipstick. I plan on purchasing more if i can get my hands on them.. P.S ' Konga im looking at u' ;)
