MAC Naked Honey and the lack of willpower

I caved in….so much for willpower…BUT….I walked away with only two products — Golden Nectar highlighter (sooo beautiful, so bronze! – Liparazzi you will like these highlighters!) and Buzz gloss. I liked the other highlighter but do I really need both? No. But I do want. C’est la vie.

Thanks for your support ladies!

MAC Naked Honey and my willpower

OK so I think tomorrow is the Naked Honey launch at my local MAC counters and stores. I really only want one of the higlighters….but every time I see a collection, I get caught up in the frenzy and get more than I intended (case in point, Style Warriors where I only intended to get Brave New Bronze but came out with two shadows, both blushes and two nail polishes!!#!?!). I’m avoiding many of the reviews this time round as they help fuel my hunger. LOL.

But this time, as you are my witness, I will only get the one product. And after I get this product, Project 10 pan again!

Can this makeup addicted mama do it??????!!

Stay tuned.

When it comes to makeup, is there such thing as ‘age’ appropriate?

On the way in to work today, I was thinking: is there such thing as ‘age appropriate’ makeup?

I saw a woman on the train who looked to be older than 50 but was so elegant and polished. She was wearing makeup – a classic look with a red lip, mascara and a light blush. I thought to myself, wow, that’s a look I want to be able to pull off when I’m that age. While walking to my office building, I saw the other extreme – a woman who’s age I couldn’t guess for sure but she was likely close to the same age as the woman on the train. The difference was she had loads of mascara on (hello Tammy Faye Baker), and frosty pink lipstick. On the other end of the spectrum, I’ve seen teenage girls with loads of makeup and in my opinion look like they are 30. I guess there are a lot of factors that can contribute to these ‘looks’ or approach to makeup and I don’t mean to judge anyone. Just some observations really.

For me, I like to think that you can and should be able to enjoy makeup at any age. I loved it as a teenager, and into my 20s and 30s. But when I entered my 30s, it was like a light bulb lit up. I became increasingly aware that what I could ‘pull off’ in my 20s might not work now. Part of it is due to age for sure. And the other in terms of where I am in my life.

So maybe it’s an evolution. If you love makeup, you’ll always love it and it will evolve as you evolve in life. At least that is what I hope for myself.

Not sure if I’ve made any sense at all or where this is going. Just some ramblings from a tired mummy who needs to sleep. Have a great night.

Let me know what you think.
