MAC's Red Alert Eyeshadow and INSTAGRAM!

I have decided to get involved with Instagram and start posting some pictures. If you're interested please follow @ANSA_LEATH.
On a different note, Mac just released a new collection called . I think the idea of an entire makeup collection infused with red during the holidays is a brilliant idea. With that being said, I'm quite picky now with makeup as I have tons and tons of it, so I only got one eyeshadow....Red Alert. This is deluxe pearl finish so it has a shimmery pearly finish and the color is a red cranberry shade, more red than MAC's infamous Cranberry. If you do not have Cranberry by MAC or if you want something later, give this a go. This will look beautiful on green eyes but it'll look great on everyone. It's a beautiful warm shade with enough shimmer to make any holiday party makeup gorgeous.

Deborah Lippmann Before He Cheats

Ahhh...the soft cloud pinkish feminine and girly on the nails. I love them. I love the soft, natural look they give, classy and polished look. Meet Deborah Lippman "Before He Cheats". It exceeds expectations in the "soft cloud pinkish" shade of polishes in my opinion.

This looks incredibly polished and sophisticated on. I adore this shade. The color itself requires three coats to look fully opaque but with one coat, you get that very soft natural shade as well. Highly recommend this shade if you're looking for something natural but with enough color to stand out against your skin. It's absolutely beautiful.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows in Grandstand and Mesmerized

Makeup Geek just released their new foiled formula which marks my first purchase of a MUG eyeshadow but not the last. I purchased Grandstand and Mesmerized and I'm in love with both of them. Foiled eyeshadows are extremely shimmery and are sort of a hybrid of shimmer and metallic eyeshadows. It gives the same effect some mineral eyeshadows do when applied wet. Swatched below Grandstand is to the right and Mesmerized to the left. Grandstand is a beautiful shimmery rose gold which leans on the pink rose side versus the gold side. There is a slight bronze undertone to this and this will look beautiful on blue eyes.  Mesmerized is very similar to MAC's Satin Taupe. It's a gorgeous shimmery purple taupe shade that makes my green eyes "pop". If you have green eyes, this is a must have.

They wear really well on the lids. They're very smooth and pigmented, extremely shimmery but not glittery and they are very fun colors. The quality of these is amazing for the price of $9 an eyeshadow. I'm very excited to have these and will pick up a few more from this range.

Jessica Ruby Red Polish

Ahh...December. The month of holidays which means red polish is a must. Jessica Ruby Red is an amazing glistening ruby shade that is the perfect hue for Christmas. The shimmer on this polish makes it sparkle and the deep berry richness makes it very eye catching. 

I love that this isn't berry or red but somewhere in between. It is reminiscent of OPI's "I Don't Do Dishes" but more berry and less red and way more dazzeling. The formula is beautiful. It goes opaque in two coats and it stays on for a full week. I will be wearing this shade quite a bit for the holidays.

Healthy snacks and teas all your favorite holiday flavors

One of the favorite things about the holidays is all the classic holiday dishes. I'm thinking of pumpkin pie, gingerbread cookies, sugar cookies and hot cocoa or tea to warm up during a cold winter day. However, knowing that several of those dishes can pack up the calories, I found some amazing healthy alternatives that taste delicious but are also nutritious. I'll start with some of my favorite ones...pumpkin pie, gingerbread and sinckerdoodle...sounds amazing right? These flavors are Larabars seasons bars that are so tasty but also nutritious. These bars are nothing but fruits and nuts and a few different spices like dates, raisins, cinnamon, cashews, pumpkin etc...Yummy right? These are so indulgent and delicious that you feel like you're eating the real thing but also helping your body stay super healthy.

A delicious drink is Celestial Holiday Teas like Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride, Cranberry Vanilla Wonderland and Sugar Plum Spice which taste just like the name description ...sweet and indulgent  but all natural and very flavorful.
My favorite is Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride which tastes just like a delidoucs sugar cookie. And don't forget the fruit that's in season right now like applies and pomegranates both packed with vitamins and antioxidants.

Essie Carry On Nail Polish

I can't seem to get away from dark polishes at the moment...probably all to do with this unusual cold weather we are experiencing. This time last year it was still pretty warm while this November feels like winter. I'm not complaining though because it has put me in the mood for the holidays and I'm on a serious countdown to Christmas. So I raided my collection for a dark polish and I found Essie's "Carry on". What looks like a very dark mauve purple on the bottle translates to an almost black color on the nails. With short nails this looks chic and I'm enjoying wearing it.

If you're looking for a dark almost black polish, give "carry on" a go. It's a beautiful color. The application is amazing. No streaks and the staying power is pretty good too. It stayed on a full week without any chips.

NARS M Butterfly polish is a brilliant shade for fall and winter. It's a gorgeous dark wine red that looks so elegant but yet a little vampy. It has an amazing glossy quality and looks like a jelly polish even though it is a cream. What makes this color unique for me is how classy it looks. It's one of those colors that you can easily wear in an office environment without looking too dark or goth. Unfortunately, I looked it up on the website before posting this and it has been discontinued. I found a very similar Sally Hanson shade for only a $1.49. See link below!!! And if you have NARS M Butterfly, then you're very lucky. 
The closest and most similar shade I found find for a far cheaper price is below:

Hope you all are having a great day.
