MAC Cosmetics Marilyn Monroe Collection

I have been patiently waiting for the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection since the rumor's started swirling and it finally launches online at maccosmetics.com today! (in stores October 4th.)

Pure platinum Hollywood glamour. Channel the legend's luster & sex appeal in a colour collection distinctively Marilyn. It's everything you need to capture the MM look. Specially designed packaging features imagery from The Black Sitting. Limited Edition.
The packaging is to DIE FOR. I picked up all of the lipstick's, eyeshadow's, beauty powder, 3 nail polishes, and a back up of smolder eye kohl. I'm still on Island time, but this was totally worth waking up early for! So much is sold out already!

Blog (end of) Summer Vacation

For the next few weeks I'll be vacationing in Hawaii, I can't wait! No one wants to be staring at a screen with a beach view like that right? I'm hoping to get a few things drafted, but lets be real, makeup is the last thing thing on my mind :) I hope you guys are winding down on a beautiful summer. I can't thank you thank you thank you enough for continuing to read my blog and peeking at my makeup looks, even if they do become a bit bland over the summer months! Halloween is just around the corner :)

Where to Shop/Review: Shopjewelryfactory.com + 15% discount code for my readers!

Shopjewelryfactory.com is another find from my late night accessory browsing, I think that's about all I do on the interweb :) They stock a GINORMOUS selection of fashion jewelry from trendy necklaces, basketball wives earrings, bracelets, watches, to handbags. With styles ranging from dainty and trendy to blinged out statement pieces and my favorite of course, the Spikes!

If you fancy edgier pieces like I do they currently have 4 pages of all the spikes, studs, and heavy metals that your little rock n roll heart desires. Nearly everything I looked at was either just a few dollars on up to $9.99-$15.99 for some of the sturdier pieces.

The items I selected were nice quality and the shipping was super fast (and free over $75). One thing I did notice is that colors and items seem to go out of stock pretty fast, so if you see something you like it's best not to wait. Happy Shopping!


Jewelry Factory is kindly offering my readers a 15% off DISCOUNT! Use Code: MONROE15 at checkout! (valid until 9/15/12).

FOTD: Ruby Ruby Ruby Soho.. MAC V Festival Red Eyeliner Face Chart

Enough is enough with this bronzed and boring summer sh*t right? I'm ready for Fall and some "me" makeup. Today's look process went from throw on rancid tee...hum ruby soho while painting face..end up with red mettalic eyeliner and red lips, or rather MAC's V Festival Face Chart. I love combining unexpected elements with classic styles and this one hits the mark.

Because Red Eyeliner isn't one everyone has on hand you can make your own with shadow's. I used MAC Basic Red Pigment (PRO) mixed with mixing medium and applied with an angle brush. For the mettalic effect I traced over it with a chrome red liquid eyeliner. The liquid liner is from a Hot Topic brand that was phased out, but similar options would be Make Up Forever Aqua Liner #10 & Inglot matte Gel Eyeliner #79
