MACWonderwoman Amazon Princess Blush, Russian Red Lipstick and Susie Cakes

Hello, i've had a busy busy week here so i barely drop by and check out blogs. Now i can't wait to go back to bloghopping again. Weee!


My post for today is about MAC's sexy superhero...Wonderwoman . Up up and away!

Don't you love to become like Wonderwoman
Sexy, gorgeous and have super awesome powers!

Last week i went to Macy's and i saw the latest MAC Wonderwoman collection. So i immediately checked out what stuffs they got. I know i don't really need any of their items nor am i lemming for anything from this collection but for blogging purposes i bought 2 items that i like...tsk...tsk...

The packaging instantly attracted me coz' the "cartoon-y" effect amused me. It's like one of those fake toy makeup sets that you get while growing up. Plastick-y with bright colors.

After a few swatches i decided to get the Amazon Princess blush and the Russian Red lipstick. I also wanted to get the Star Studded quad eyeshadow from the collection but decided against it coz' at $40 i opted to buy Soft Ochre paintpot, concealer in N30 and a Chatterbox lipstick (which i'm loving so much now coz' people compliment me with that shade). I'll do a separate post with my other loots. And i'm planning to get more MAC stuffs too. hehe...


So here's my pick of the blush...

Amazon Princess blush retails at $24


I was standing at the MAC counter for quite sometime debating to myself if i should get this  or the Mighty Aphrodite. I find the deep blue pink with gold pearl a bit different to my usual peachy coral blush shades that Aphrodite has. So for a change i chose this one.

The packaging reminds me of  Shiseido's huge white face powder

L-pink with blue undertone
R-deep plum shade
(my skin is a bit dry due to the weather...sorry)

The colors combined together


How it look like on my cheeks
I'm using Bourjois Rose Toubib lipstick here

I have to say that the staying power of this blush is excellent. It almost lasted me the entire day. I use the pink as a blush and sometimes i mix them together to create a more dramatic effect. You can control the amount that you want depending on the look you need. Another good thing about this is that it can also be used as an eyeshadow with the pink as a base and the mauve as crease color. So it's basically 2 in 1 product. The color is vivid at first and then tones down after awhile. 

This blush could probably last me for years! so i have to veer away from buying similar shades as this one is enough for me. I'm quite happy with this one. I won't repurchase anymore coz' the container alone is already hard to finish and it's a limited edition as well!... Hehe:-)


Now let's move on to this sexy lipstick shade...

Russian Red lipstick retails at $15.50
It's so easy to spot this lipstick in my makeup bag!

Very bold and daring kind of red



I would've loved to use this shade last Valentines (was also my mom's birthday...Happy Birthday mom!)...but since i'm a thousand miles away, i'm gonna save it til' i get back home. Haha! I don't know why but lately i'm into using dark, bold lipsticks. Yes, for almost 2 weeks i've been using several kinds of mauve, deep red or burgundy colors. The shades that i don't usually use. That's why when i saw this, i didn't think twice about buying this because i thought it would be a nice option for my growing dark lipstick collection.


I guess they must've named it after those bloody-gorgeous Russian women hehe

Matte formulation

Without gloss


I added Wet n'Wild Diamond Brilliance clear gloss

This lipstick made my lips standout even from afar. Everytime i pass by mirrors, the first thing i would notice is my bold red lips. I feel that i could even stop cars with this shade. Haha! The bluish red color is something you cannot possibly ignore as it screams for attention. I only apply this lightly on my lips so it won't look too intense and then i coat it over with a clear gloss. That way it can still be wearable for daytime. Other than that this shade is also perfect to use at night.

Lasting power is good but the formulation is also quite drying so gloss! gloss! gloss! I won't repurchase this too coz' there's still a wide array of other reds to experiment and choose from. But overall, this is still a nice shade for me coz' it instantly brightens my face and the color looks sexy too. :-)


After a tiring day at the mall, we walked to this famous bakeshop at the back of Macy's that sells yummy cupcakes. My aunt swears that it's so delicious that i'm gonna love it. Honestly, i don't have a sweet tooth so i wasn't too excited. But i  like how quaint and cozy the place looks like! 

Well i'm glad i tried this coz' until now i still remember the sweet, creamy and melt-in-your-mouth texture of the frosting. The cupcakes are simply divine! Even somebody like me who's not so much into pastries is suddenly craving for one of those fantastic treats! If you happen to be around the area do try them and you'd simply love these delicious goodies! :-)

Cute quaint bakeshop at the corner

Welcome to Susie Cakes

Sorry it's quite a long post hehe

Until next time pretty peeps
I still have too many loots/new products to post:-)

I love that perfect pink glow of Amazon Princess on your cheeks! I actually really wanted that shade as well.. but it was sold out online by the time I took a look. :( Russian Red is really pretty red, I love that it's bright but totally wearable.

Hi there! What a very nice post you have here. I really admire ladies who could perfectly know the difference of the products that they are using. I'm a beginner when it comes to makeups that explains my enthusiasm towards knowing things. And with that I wanted ask for your opinion about this item http://www.tameraonline.com/servlet/the-540/Neutrogena-MoistureShine-Lipstick-with/Detail. Hope that you could help me out just before I could buy something that I might regret. Thanks!
