In the beauty blogging world, everyone cheer for each other for popping their "cherry." By that, I mean making your first purchase of a product or from a brand. Please no sick minds here, I intend to keep my blog 'friendly.' σ(^。^;

Dear fellow beauty junkies, I have officially got my 'cherry' popped! My 'MAC' cherry. You may recall that I'd gotten MAC Fix+ Spray not too long ago(which I will review very soon), but that's can't be counted at least to me. This seems more suitably categorized as a skincare item, agree?

As we all know, M∙A∙C Cosmetics is more renowed for its makeup and sets every makeup loving heart all aflutter. I don't really follow their collections, and have seen some products that I really like, but are no longer available. Bummer.

Sidetracking here - I'm sure most of you are aware of the new collection by MAC and also the controversy it is causing. The company teamed up with a designer duo known as Rodarte, will release a new makeup line inspired by female factory workers in the deadly border town of Juarez, Mexico.

Juarez is a killing field for young women, the site of nearly 400 unsolved murders and many more abductions. Hundreds of women have been slain since the early 1990s, many of them also sexually assaulted, mutilated and tortured. Hundreds more have disappeared. To make matters worse, the authorities exhibit indfference despite the horrific nature of these violent crimes. In face, there are strong evidence that some officials may be involved as well. In a nutshell, all these corruption have permitted criminals to continue committing these horrendous acts, knowing there will be no consequences. In a nutshell, Juarez is a freaking WARZONE for women.

Femicide is not to be taken lightly. Femicide is the mass murder of women simply because they are women. Even though both companies have issued their apologies, but what good can you do by donating a mere US$100, 000 to "help those in need in Juarez?" Think about the profits and earnings they stand to earn, what can a mere amount do to help these unfortunate women? (I feel guilty for lemming over eyecandies while these poor souls are getting slained! (つд⊂) )

Seriously, where is your HEART+SOUL, MAC?

Please take a moment and sign this PETITION, which will "encourage" MAC & Rodarte to make better contributions to the Juarez situation. Thank You.
After reading about femicide and nothing's been done to salvage the situation,
this sounds so off & hypocritical... (´・ω・`)
I am no longer a MAC virgin!! Long story short, I saw a friend selling this baby and after some googling at the swatches and more "should I buy or not" hesitation, I decided to get my cherry "popped" and put the lemming beast to hibernation. Hallelujah!!

Mineralize Blush Duo - Sun & Moon

Isn't this GORGEOUS?!?! I got intimated when I read the many "this thing is TOO ORANGE-Y for my skin" comments. The Revlon bronzer I had gotten some weeks ago gave me this healthy glow and fortunately, did not make me look like "tanning gone wrong" siao za bor!(crazy woman, in dialect)

I was attracted by the peachy copper brown color with pink & gold shimmer.

It looks dark in the pan and is very pigmented, but the formula allows you to apply it to be extremely sheer or build it in layers. Despite the shimmer factor, it looks very natural on my skin.

See that sun-kissed glow? I have been wearing it 2 days in a roll and my other blushes are starting to whine (lol)

To avoid look like a baboon's backside, I swatched the colors separately on the back of my hand, swirl my brush over the pigments and then apply on my cheeks.

You can be sure that I'll be wearing this often♥

In case you did not see me at the Physiogel convention on Tuesday, this is Yours Truly~. I have been going gaga over red lippies lately, and the ones that I owned are DARK RED! Currant, Rasin - all dark shades of red. What I had on that night was Burning Rose by L'oreal and Lancome's Rose Mythique.

Have a wonderful weekend, everybody. Milo is doing well, and you can tell from the photo that this ASSBUTT loves to pose for the camera. He makes a better camwhore than I do!

  • Rodarte - I honestly didn't know who they were until this collection. I didn't want to write anything until I did some research - and man, some of the things that were done to these women scares me why people would do such things. Its really sad.

    But on the contrary, that blush looks really pretty and it gives you such a wonderful glow. <3
  • The promo image looks terrible, worst than the Addams family. It's even more extreme than goth, how is that attractive?

    It's gorgeous, yah? Apparently it has more raves than Ripe Peach after all that hype lol

  • ilyana
  • The promo image is shit but it actually fits with Rodarte's brand images. I've never liked Rodarte and never will, their designs are disgusting.

    Anyway congrats on your second MAC purchase lol! It's a pretty blush, cheers to more in the future ;D
  • Babe, please do not try to tempt me. I'm putting the beast to sleep until further notice lol
