From one beauty junkie to another <3

MAC Black Knight is the one thing I bought on black Friday this year. It is pretty much what I expected after reading tons of reviews from the previous release. It’s sheer to a point but can be built up.

I recently got my hands on Benefit’s newest boxed powder, Hervana. This beauty will be available for purchase in January 2012. It’s a light blusher which I think would work best on light skin tones but it also has subtle shimmer which could work as a highlight on darker skin. It smells sweet and kind of floral like which is similar to the other boxed powders. One new thing with this addition to the boxed powder lineup is the included brush is slanted instead of flat. I usually don’t use the included brushes but maybe I will try this slanted one for fun. I wasn’t able to get a decent swatch photo, sorry guys :(. I highly recommend checking this out as well as all the other boxed powders. I love them all!

1. Ms Piggy Pink eyeshadow: the color payoff isn’t really what you would expect from a MAC shadow but it’s pink and I like it. 🙂

2. Eloquent Air lipstick: looks kind of scary in the tube but it’s a semi sheer silver. In the swatch below I swatched it kind of heavy just so you could get an idea of the color. I really love this!
