New Makeup Goodies

Ok guys, I have been a little obsessed lately with trying out fun new makeup, bright lipsticks in particular. I think it's a great way to punch up a neutral outfit and is going to be a huge spring trend. My lovely aunt Judy gave me a little gift card to Macy's for the big two five so last night the Hubs and I went to the Dallas Galleria because it was very much burning a hole in my pocket (I get really excited about gift cards and love to spend them right away). I went straight to the MAC counter knowing there were a few lippies I wanted to try. I ended up purchasing "Rebel" and "Candy Yum Yum" and I am already in love. "Rebel" is like a purpley reddish pink, which I know is confusing but it's really hard to describe. It looks much darker in the tube and I honestly was not expecting to even like it but the shade is surprisingly flattering. The "Candy Yum Yum" I knew I was going to love because I have been really into bright pink lips lately. I also picked up the Too Faced "Better Than False Lashes" mascara duo. It's a three step process where you cost your lashes with the mascara, then add a layer of the fiber extensions which are like little cotton pieces that stick to the base coat, then you coat your lashes a third time with the mascara. The Hubs was the judge when I tested it out, he had to guess which eye had that and which eye just had regular mascara. He knew the answer right away so I figured it was worth it! Let me know if you guys like these products or have any other questions about them!
