So sorry this is such a sloppy manicure job, but I was in a hurry to get out the door.  Plus, I’m not very good at doing them on myself.

MAC Perfect Topping Mineralize Skinfinish Reformulation

I’ve really wanted MAC Perfect Topping Mineralize Skinfinish for quite a while and was super excited to purchase it in the A Fantasy of Flowers Collection.

Unfortunately this particular Skinfinish is limited edition but you can find a permanent MAC Mineralize Skinfinish ($32.00) in the permanent line that is similar in shade. I was stocking Perfect Topping like a hawk and snatched it up online the minute it released. Because I don’t have access to MAC other than via website I had to patiently wait for it in the mail. In the meantime Temptalia released photos and a mini review of hers that she had received via PR sample. If you go and read her ramble about it, you’ll see that it is nothing like the original release and was quite frankly odd looking. Go check it out, you’ll be surprised to see the photos. Temptalia’s Review: (http://www.temptalia.com/mac-perfect-topping-2014-stereo-rose-2014-mineralize-skinfinishes-reviews-photos-swatches)

Anyhow her review and photos made me a little depressed about the purchase I had made and was waiting on. When it finally showed up I busted open the box in the car and squeeled with delight! Mine is EXACTLY like the original releases and I can say I did the happy dance all day long!

Drugstore Haul and Swatches

Went shopping on a whim, again, and picked up a few Wet N Wild goodies and Essie polishes.  This was my first taste of Wet N Wild eyeshadows and I’m pretty impressed I must say!
