Mac Midnight Blues Fluid Line Review

Collection: MAC Me Over
Price: 15.00

Color:  This color in pan shows a bit lighter in photo.  This is very close up in great lighting, this is a deep blueish green with finely milled sparkles.  The sparkle is not offensive and barely noticeable.  This is a great color very rich and fall appropriate.  If you are looking for something more jazzy than your regular black liner, this is a great way to incorporate color into your collection.  A deep blue green lays beautifully on the lid creating the perfect deep color.

Staying Power: All Mac Fluidliners in my opinions are alright when it comes to longevity.  Every color I own I love the color more than the formula.  Mac does a great job in bringing makeup lovers a truly unique range of colors.  But the fluid lines always wear off a bit throughout an 8 hour work day, they are not smudge or waterproof.  I would still recommend these fluid liner with a good base like Too Face Shadow Insurance or Urban Decay Primer Potion. 

Applying:  Easy to apply with a small liner brush, the consistency is beautiful and smooth.  A great way to introduce liner into your makeup routine.  These are not recommend on the eye lid, especially the colors with sparkle/glitter.  The ones without glitter are very long wearing and pigmented on the waterline.

Overall:  A great colored eyeliner to have in the collection, not to bright or bold.  Office appropriate, a great alternative to black, and as always smooth and creamy.  If you love Mac Fluid Lines than this is a great addition.  Not a must need product, but again a great alternative.

Handmade Soap Haul From Monkey Barsoaps

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

I recently sold my jewels at the lovely Astoria Market at The Bohemian Beer Garden In Astoria Queens on 9/25/2011.  One thing I love about attending fairs or vending is you get to meet the artists face to face.  There passion, knowledge and product truly stands out beyond any computer screen.

I met Johnny Scarlet owner and creator of Monkey Barsoaps, anything beauty related I gravitate to instantly.  He was interested in buyers wants and needs, and I appreciated his attentiveness in regards to ingredient concerns.  Packaging was hands down my favorite of any soap company I have purchased from, I have bought so many brands.  Monkey Barsoaps offers quality soaps handmade in the USA.

I purchased 3 bars of soap :

1) Oatmeal Milk And Honey - 6.00 a bar
Anything honey is my ultimate favorite this has a warm sweet smell.  If you are a lover of anything honey this is your bar, with oats for gentle exfoliation this makes the perfect bar to get smooth and clean.

2) Hoegaarden Bars 6.00 a bar

This bar smells of fresh citrus delightfulness, this bar has a really nice clean smell.  Not overpowering and pine sol like, this bar has the perfect hint of invigorating lemon like scent.  I love soap that makes me feel clean smell clean and awakens me on a overtired morning.

3) Guinness Soap: 6.00 a bar

I have always been intrigued with beer soaps, but I really never had the guts to go and purchase online with out a good ol scratch and sniff.  While I attended this event I was able to smell the dark sexy scents lingering from this bar.  This is a unisex smell I feel its not for everyone if you love sweet food like smells this isn't for you if you want something clean yet sexy this is the scent.

All photos are my own
Review will be up shortly for these soaps!
