MAC Caliente Lipstick

Before the month is over and we are inundated with new limited edition collections, here comes a quick swatch of MAC Caliente Lipstick.

It came out with the Temperature Rising Collection (click here to see my haul) and it belongs in the same color familiy as these lipsticks here:

Colorwise it's most similar to "O".

Oh, Oh, Oh also shows resemblance, it's in that same plummy bronze red family, but it's a lot sheerer.

Here, let me show you:


 MAC Caliente

MAC Oh, Oh, Oh

The most prominent difference is that Caliente has a Dazzle finish (means tons of tiny micro-glitter in the base color), the glitter being pink and bronze.

"O" has a Frost finish, Oh, Oh, Oh is a Lustre.

The Dazzle finishes in the past have been rather sheer, but Caliente has a lot of underlying pigment, it comes out very opaque.

My only little complaint about it is that the tiny micro-glitter will stay on your lips and also travel around your mouth even when the lipstick is long gone, which can look a little ridiculous, but that's really the only little thing I don't like about it.

Did you get MAC Caliente? Are you liking it? I'd love to know!

Buh-bye Cute-ster number 2...

Hi everyone!

If you follow me on Instagram (I'm @_blusherine), you have already seen the picture, but here - for you all on Blogspot - here come the sad sad (sad!) news once again: ;-))

... tissue please...

Ladies and Gentlemen,
 two MAC Cute-sters are gone!

It took me four years to get through two tubes, they came out with the MAC Hello Kitty Collection in 2009, so I figure I'll have until 2017! ;-)

Here is a mugshot of the four gangstas from two years ago ;-)

And here is the blogpost about it, after I completely used up one tube.

If you want to know a little more about my beloved Cute-ster, please read here.

Now all that's left to say:

MAC, please repromote!!!

I really need to stock up, this will look good even when I'm an old grannie!

I'll have no teeth, but I'll have MAC Cute-ster on my lips!

Coral Forever...

Hi everybody!

I hope you had a nice weekend! In Austria we had Monday off because of Whit Monday, so today, Tuesday, feels like a Monday! :-)

For me, it was an outdoor weekend, I was really happy the weather played along nicely, it was fun to be out moving!

As you know I have taken up jogging again this spring (totally inspired by MissChievous' summer fit videos). It's gotten to the point where I "need it" after a long day at work, which is good, but we'll see how long that lasts! :-) Usually, it takes little and I'll be lying on the couch again! :-))

Anyway, my fitness score on Runtastic this month so far:

Not bad, right?

Kilometers run:

 Since I needed new running clothes, I went to H&M and got myself this outift:

Both top and shorts are still available, if you're interested, I'll link you to the pages here and here.

Oh, and by the way, I am on Instagram now, if you want to follow me, I'm @_blusherine!

Since coral is my favorite color, I painted my nails coral to match my outfit:

 Essence Nail Polish in Be Flowerful
(Floral Grunge Collection)

 Makeup-wise I hit pan on two eyeshadows by Nyx from their Champagne & Caviar Palette, which is always a good thing, right? :-)

The two colors are comparable to Soft Brown and Mystery by MAC, I use the light brown shade to blend out the crease and the dark brown shade to deepen up the outer corner.

I have this palette at my boyfriend's place and it's my "one does it all palette", what I love about it is that it has shimmery lid colors and then a matte highlight shade, a matte blending shade and a matte dark brown shade, that's just perfect! If you have a lot of eyeshadows already, this isn't a must-have though, it's very convenient for me because I have most of my makeup collection in my own apartment and I need a good versatile palette at my boyfriend's place!

What else last week?

I went on a Via Ferrata in Mödling, Lower Austria, here are a couple of pictures from that trip:

Mödling lies 16 km south of Vienna, here is a picture of the town (you can see the outskirts of Vienna in the upper left corner):

The aqueduct in the front part of the picture is actually still in use, it transports drinking water to Vienna!

Then yesterday, on Whit Sunday, we went to Tulln in Lower Austria for a walk on the promenade along the Danube river and to get some ice cream. Near the promenade there are statues of the Nibelungenlied which I took pictures of:



And to finish off my week in pictures, here are two dishes I had:

Tikka Masala, an Indian dish, cooked by my friends


A platter of cold cuts at our local wine tavern
That's it, that's my week in pictures.

I hope you also had a good week and are ready for the one to come!

MAC Bare My Soul Quad

Hi ladies!

Today I tried out my new MAC Bare My Soul Eyeshadow Quad from the current Temperature Rising Collection.

Here is what the palette looks like:

And here come swatches:

 (click to enlarge)

For the look I made it a point to only use the colors in the palette, because I think if you go out and get it, you should be able to do a look without having to add a ton of additional colors.

So here is what I came up with: 


Products used:

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Maybelline Color Tattoo On and on Bronze (all over lid)

MAC Quad:
Bare my Soul (all over lid)
Romantico (in the crease, blended up almost until brow)
When in Rio (outer v)
Friendly (outer lower lashline)
Romantico (inner lower lashline)

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in shade 10 (as highlight)

MAC Pearlglide Eyeliner Petrol Blue (upper waterline)
 MAC Eye Kohl Teddy (lower waterline)

MAC Plush Lash Mascara
b.pretty transparent eyebrow gel

 Here is everything laid out:

And here are two more pictures:
