My new love - MAC in Hey & Caribana

So I was going to do a post about the goodies that I received from M.A.C.nunu's giveaway a very long time ago, but I couldn't resist and started using the products right away! I would take a picture of some of the items, but many of them I already ate up or used lol

In her package to me, she included this lovely eyeshadow by MAC in Hey. When I saw it, I immediately thought about Stila's Kitten.

Once I swatched it, I was pleasantly surprised that it was not the same. Kitten is a bit too shimmery for me.

Sorry for the duplicate photo - just wanted to show you how it looks in different lighting. The top photo is indoors, just regular lighting. The bottom one is also indoors, but by the window.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this eyeshadow. I'm not big on eyeshadow - I find it difficult to blend colours and don't have a good grasp on how to apply it. The rare occasion I do wear it, I usually stick to one colour or I may try to add a 2nd colour lol I love this eyeshadow so much that I have been wearing it almost every day! I get a lot of compliments :D It's such a nice subtle colour and for some reason, it makes my eyes just pop. It's a very nice, soft, everyday kind of colour! If you go to MAC's website though, the swatch on there is quite dark. Maybe it's my computer screen ?

sigh - It's a Saturday night and I'm sitting at home on blogger. How lame is that lol. My bf is actually in Montreal enjoying his brother's bachelor party! I have been cleaning and re-organizing my forever growing cosmetics collection. I have found many items that I don't use anymore that I will put up for swapping (so I'm happy about that)

Any of you Toronto folks enjoying the Caribana? I went several years ago and took a couple of photos (sorry they're not great). There were many pretty and extravagant costumes, but way too many people for my liking lol

For more information on Caribana, visit:
From the website:"The Caribana Parade is the largest Caribana Festival event in North America and this year it will celebrate its 43 anniversary. This event is made up of a series of Bands that compete for best costumes in this annual parade. The Caribana Parade consists of over a million participants including steel pan bands, live soca, calypso, reggae and salsa performers as well as elaborate masqueraders in costume"

Hope you're enjoying your weekend :) Thanks for reading!

  4. This is my all time favourite eyeshadow! Like you, when I'm really lazy/going minimalistic, I just do a wash of this all over the lid and I'm good to go.
    Glad to know you liked it! Hope you liked the rest of the stuff I sent. Lol I kinda forgot what I sent already xD
