This Week in Makeup: A little bit of MAC, YSL and Shu Uemura

I’ve been overwhelmed lately…and it’s not just work. It’s makeup. I know…first world problem right? So during the past week or so, I’ve been trying to give some love to the collection, reviving some old favourites and testing out things I totally forgot I had.

Two lipsticks grabbed my attention on more than one occasion. First is MAC’s Hot Tahiti lipstick, an unsung hero when it comes to MAC lipsticks. This one has been around for years, and I only picked it up in the last six months or so. I love it. It’s a warm rosy red with the most wonderful sheen. Worth a look if you’re in the market for a great daytime red.

 The other lipstick I gravitated towards was more of a neutral, warm pink: YSL Rouge Volupte Perle #104, (my previous reviews are here and here). I’ve called this one of my go-to lipsticks in the past and I can see why I loved it then, and now  – it feels amazing on, and looks great for every day.  

Aside from lipstick, I also started reaching more for metallic eyeshadows such as ME Olive471  eyeshadow by shu uemura. Here’s a link to my review. I love wearing this just as a wash on my lids with lots of mascara. Easy, almost smoky look but still very work appropriate in my view.

How’s your week been when it comes to makeup?

    Hey Michelle, I love to go through my stash and rediscover old favorites as well! Hot Tahiti is definitely underrated. I don’t think I’ve heard of this one at all! Thanks for introducing it to me 🙂

    Hi Michelle!
    i think the metallic eyeshadow color goes well with both neutral and more dramatic colors.
    i myself have been wearing neutral shimmer on the eyes and red lippies a lot lately.
    have a great weekend! 🙂

    Oh Michelle that YSL is so pretty! For makeup this week I’ve been getting more into glitter!!! I can hardly believe it myself but it’s not all out, it’s more like little touches. I don’t want to look overly made up since my workplace, although corporate, it surprisingly laid back as far as clothes are concerned. 🙂
