Perfect Nude Lips for Fall - MAC Spite

Guys and girls, prepare, because I may just have found the best nude lip combo for the season of Fall and Winter.

*dun dun dun*........

Are you ready?

Okay. So as you all probably know by now, if I buy a lipstick or a lipgloss, it must be nude. If it's not nude, I will not get it even if it's like free, because I won't wear it! So I have all the nude lippies from MAC (which, once AGAIN, reminds me that I should do a lippie overview...........but you know I'm just lazzzzzzzy.........) But when it comes to nudes, my nudes are always pinky or peachy ones. They look SO immature for the colder seasons, because my lips look girly and bubbly and all cute with NO SOPHISTICATION AT ALL. And Fall is like, a really sophisticated season if you ask me, and winter is basically for the cool and calm and complicated ladies. SO in my hunt for the best nude lippies Holy Grail(s), I was suddenly stricken with an odd idea, what if I pair a dark vampy dead-looking lipgloss with a nude lipstick?

The first colour that popped in my head is Spite from MAC.

If you visit MAC you would know their lipglass, plushglass and lustreglass display together horizontally on a vertical display. -____-lll And the light and colourful shades are on the top, the deep dark vampy shades are on the bottom. I do all sorts of lip combos, but I never do them with dark browns or like dark dark berry. Because I just..never thought of it.

Spite, if you know, is why MAC exists and is such a popular brand. Because it is a colour no one else can imitate. It is such a complicated and WEIRD shade. It's dark, it's brown, it's purple, it's lilac, it's nude? Okay it's taupe. (LOL) No wait it's...the colour of spite. I find the name extremely accurate for this colour! I never looked at it before, but it for some reason, is the first thing I think of when I think of a dead looking lipglass.

If you are a dark skinned gal, and you want that oh-I-just-died-few-hours-ago liplook, this lipglass is just for you. But if I want that look, I need a base. Don't ask me why I want to look like I just died. But..after years of peachy nudes, you want a nude that's different. So what I do is I put creme d'nude from MAC under it, and the result is a STUNNING grey taupe nude. Which is PERFECT for Fall, because it is a nude with depth.

Just on a side note, nail polish is OPI Do You Lilac It

B2M General Info

So as many of you know MAC has new policies for B2M.

1. Pro longwear lip creme lipsticks are not good for B2M. Meaning you cannot give 6 empty containers for that lipstick. It costs higher than the other lipsticks therefore you cannot B2M for those.

2. Cremesheen lipglass is not available for B2M either, similar reason above.

3. Now in pro-store you can B2M for eyeshadows as well as lipsticks and lipglasses.

4. MAC wipes are B2M-able.

5. Mechanic eyepencils are B2M-able, but not regular sharpening ones. So ie: you can B2M the Technakolh liner.

First Back to Mac (I know..shocking right?)

Argh do you believe it? My first EVER B2M. Think about it. The oldest empty lipglass container I've had is probably 7 years old. This is freaking disgusting. It's just been sitting there waiting for B2M for like....ever. I was afraid to open it 3 years ago. So imagine its state now. I just never use up stuff because I get tired of it half way through and just buy a new colour. Thank God that 6 of my oldest stuff went back. I was seriously going to toss them out, the thought of my old containers makes me gag.

Anyway I still remember my very first purchase from MAC was a lipglass called Lychee Luxe. Back then I was in highschool and I saved quite a while for that lipglass loool, because my parents did not allow me to work, and they gave me no allowance, since they buy my everything anyway. They don't like me wearing makeup so obviously, MAC is not on their grocery list. I bought it, and thought it was pretty but way too loud for school, and back then I had nothing to layer it with and lol, did I even know anything about lipstick and gloss layering? I don't remember. It was pretty though. And the thing I remembered the most is that the doefoot  applicator for the lipglass was so soft! What high quality stuff! LOOOOL I was a lame kid.

Smith Rosebud Salve in Minted Rose and Brambleberry Rose

So today I decided to do this review for the famous famous Rosebud salves. Ironically, I don't have the original one. The 2 I'm going to review are the Brambleberry Rose and the Minted Rose. The reason I did not get the original is because if I put any petroleum based lip balms on my lips and if it does not have a sensation or a strong pleasant flavour, I will throw up. And to be honest, I hate rose scents.

I know.

Anyway, let's begin the review so I ramble less...Here is how they look like, they each contain 22g of product, and is about $9CAN or $7USD(I think..).

I love the little tin for Brambleberry Rose. It's so vintage!
