Beauty By Tiffany: M.A.C Archie's Girls Collection and Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation

For me, I'm not really one to try tons of makeup. I have my routine and generally like to stick to it. Plus, I feel that with make-up and beauty products I can never predict how it's going to look on, even if I try it on before purchasing. So I generally like to see how others like a beauty product before I purchase it myself. And I figured if  I'm this way maybe there are others out there who are too. Therefore, I brought in my sister, the beauty buff Tiffany, to share her current make-up and beauty hauls, reviews, and tips with you all.

With no further ado here's Tiffany's beauty haul and review this week.

MAC Archie's Girls Collection 

I am a sucker for anything limited edition or with cute packaging! This MAC collection had me completely sold, but I had to resist and only pick up a few items. I want to share my two favorites from the collection.

First off, I absolutely love the blush and it was the first thing that caught my eye. Because I have a darker complexion, I tend to lean towards darker and more pigmented blushes. This blush was right up my alley. In the pot, there is a small amount of shimmer, but once placed on the cheek the shimmer is not visible. Since I have oily skin, I tend to not like too much shimmer. The pigment pay off is AMAZING! You cannot go wrong with it. The color might be scary, but once on the skin it's more pink than magenta like it looks in the pot. The color is build-able, so if you'd like darker finish, go ahead and layer that baby on!

Lasty, I'm not a huge fan of gloss, but I couldn't resist the packaging! I have a new found love for MAC lip glosses after trying this one! It's not even the least bit sticky and that is what definitely turns me off about lip glosses! The color is sheer, but definitely build-able also! When placed over natural lip color, it gives off a gorgeous light coral sheen to your lips.
**TIP: To get the most color pay off, try muting out your lips with a nude lipstick or with some foundation or concealer! Use the excess from your makeuover!p brush or fingers and gently rub over your lips after moisturizing. It will give you a nice clean slate to put any gloss or lipstick 

If you have the chance to pick up any of the Archie's Girls Collection I recommend grabbing these items!

This cream foundation is great for all skin types. Its selling factor is it's lasting power, which says it's to be 24 hours. I wouldn't recommend wearing your makeup for that long, but I can tell you that the longer it is on your skin, the better it looks throughout the day. You can wear it with or without a setting powder. The finish is matte with or without a primer. Personally, I always like to set my foundation or concealer because I have oilier skin. What's so great about this foundation is that its true to what it claims about it's lasting power and it instantly makes your skin look brighter and more youthful. I think this foundation is great for mom's because you do not need to continue to touch up throughout the day and it's a great foundation for your blush and bronzer. I notice with this foundation, my blush lasts longer through out the day. The coverage is build-able as you can see I only placed on one layer and my blemishes are pretty much concealed. I would recommend this foundation for anyone with long days!
