Updated Vanity and Storage

Greetings!  During my hiatus I updated my vanity. The desk is comprised of 2 separate  stationery  5 drawer towers from Michael's, as well as two ikea items. The Galant tabletop and the Alex hutch.

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

Every year, MAC releases new lipstick and gloss for charity. 100% of the proceeds to go men, women and children living with the AIDS (HIV Virus).

I try to support this worthy cause.

This year's launch is exciting.

Rihanna's signature is on the exterior paper box packaging as well as on the lipstick tube and glass lipglass tube.

The lipstick packaging is BEAUTIFUL!
 I am usually not a sucker for this kind of thing, but I love this frosty tube!

I am not fully pleased with the finish of the lipstick. It is a frost. The wear time is about an hour for me alone.
I opted to add a MAC Lip Pencil as a base to increase the wear time. It helped increase the time to three hours. I was somewhat unhappy with the finish as it bled overtime, despite the use of the lip pencil.

I prefer to use a lip pencil, a matte lipstick and gently dab the frost lipstick on my pout. I achieved the best results doing this.

Did you purchase this?
Do you plan to support the campaign this year?

Scarf Of The Day OVERSIZED Cheetah Print

This carshot doesn't allow you to fully view the scarf, but I am completely obsessed! I was running errands on a Saturday with the hubby. I was wearing my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation in Intensity 5. I've since lost my summer tan and this foundation is way too dark for me. I have recently started to just wear MAC Studio Concealer in NC45 with some powder on top. Buying foundations is breaking my bank. It is the only thing I've allowed myself to purchase during my "no buy".
This day I wore a neutral smokey eye and nude lip.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24/7 Eyeshadow in Tough As Taupe is one of my favorites!
I even pulled out the NYX Nude on Nude palette for that pretty taupe shade for my lid color.
I just used bronzer instead of blush.

I am not a fan of full on frontal shots. When you take enough photos for blogging, you begin to know your angles.
Brows on point. I am working on finishing my last Maybelline Define A Brow Pencil. *tear. Were it not for a couple of good friends who live out of state (NE & GA), I wouldn't have even had that last pencil. I am looking for an alternative since Maybelline discontinued my favorite darkest shades. Everytime I go to Walmart, the shelf is either empty or the pencil I purchase is so old, it crumbles on contact with my face.

Do you wear scarves?
