 Here are swatches of the lipsticks from the new M.A.C Playland collection , that was released April 17.

I love all the bright colors in the collection even Playland which is a yellow gold shimmer. It will be great for mixing.  

I got four colors from this collection. I skipped on Sweet Experience which a light pink and looks gorgeous in the tube but not on me with my olive skin.
 I also passed on Head in the Clouds because I got Playland and seriously that can make any matte red look the same color when you mix both colors.

Did you pick up anything from the collection?

Sephora Favorites Meet Your Match

I thought this was a cute little set to get during Sephora's VIB sale.

I like the the three color schemes the set includes: orchid, nude and coral/pink.

What a great way to try new products and colors, and with summer coming that means travel for many of us.  These are great for that.

The only downer in my opinion is the size.  These are really small and some may think too small for the price.

Here is what you get:

- 0.27 oz Deborah Lippman Nail Lacquer in Girls Just Want to Have Fun 
- 0.06 oz Lipsurgence™ Lip Tint in Elite 
- 0.17 oz Formula X Nail Color in Invincible 
- 0.03 oz Hourglass Cosmetics Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Child 
- 0.13 oz Nails Inc. Devonshire Row Nail Polish 
- 0.05 oz Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Strangefruit

Retail is $25.00.
My favorites are the Bite Beauty gloss and Nails Inc. nail polish.

Have you seen these in your store?

Bare Minerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation in Bare Sand First Impressions and Swatches


 Like many of you Bare Mineral lovers,  I have been waiting for months for this to be released.

I pre ordered mine with QVC months ago and finally got it last week.

I was really worried about what color to get, so after checking the shade chart on QVC,  I chose bare sand and it is perfect for my skin tone :)

The consistency is kind of watery yet highly pigmented.

Here is what QVC says about it:

What is it: The Dawn of a New Foundation. A breakthrough, tone-correcting mineral foundation and skin care serum in one. This ultra-thin, skin-perfecting fluid provides seamless, adjustable coverage; a natural finish; and the look and feel of beautiful bare skin while delivering a more noticeably brighter, youthful appearance. The New Perfecting Face Brush was designed specifically for use with bareSkin(TM) Foundation for the smoothest application.
Who is it for: Formulated for all skin types and complexions. Ideal for anyone looking for a tone-correcting foundation and skin care serum in one.
Why is it different: From the beginning, bareMinerals(R) has been on a crusade to provide women with alternatives to foundations rooted in a less-is-more philosophy. bareSkin Foundation was developed with that same philosophy in mind, to help deliver flawless coverage with a no-makeup look and feel.
This unique, lightweight, ultra-thin, skin-perfecting fluid delivers adjustable coverage and a flawless finish, while also providing skin care benefits. The mineral infusion is formulated with ingredients that help deliver a noticeably brighter, more youthful appearance. And it's formulated without water, oil, silicone, parabens, or fragrance.
The new Perfecting Face Brush has a specially engineered reservoir that holds the fluid formula, while the longer, surrounding bristles smooth out the finish upon application.

I am very pleased with this so far. 

When shaking the bottle, it reminds me of the sound of a spray paint can. Totally random thought, I know.

Have any of you tried it yet?

I believe it is only available at QVC until next month.
