My Swatches and Review
I picked up only 5 shades from the collection. Making sure to get Goldyrocks since it was permanent.
From Left To Right Swatches of
Goldyrocks, Rags to Richies, Date Night, Get Rich Quick, Love Alert,
My Thoughts: As you can see from the bottles Date Night was my favorite, I swear it's almost gone :(. Luckly it permanent so I can always order another one. Get Rich Quick is perfect if you love browns and neutral shades along with Goldyrocks. Love Alert is a bright red color that looks super fab while Rags to Richies is a pretty pinky tone. Love it! The glasses are a bit sticky but most lipglosses are. They look great paired with your favorite lipstick or worn alone.

What Shadow Shields Says It Does: Shadow Shields are the only product of its kind to truly eliminate messy "raccoon eyes" caused by applying eye makeup. Recommended and used by industry leading makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts world wide, Shadow Shields are also ideal for lash tinting, extensions, and airbrush!
They are half moon shaped adhesives that are placed under the eye before applying eye makeup. Any excess product that falls is caught by the shields, leaving you with clean under eyes!!
Shadow Shields are giving women everywhere the confidence they need to apply eye makeup, while making the job of a makeup artist a little easier!
What I say It Does: I love love this product. I hate getting raccoon eyes when trying to create the perfect smokey eye look. The shields are a great new addition to my make up collection and I would recommend them to any girl that loves wearing eye makeup. They are easy to use, you simply peel them off from the adhesive on the back and place them under your eye. Make sure you do one eye at a time. There are two ways to prevent raccoon eyes when you are applying eye makeup, shadow shields and by applying your eye makeup first and then your foundation and regular makeup. I would not recommend using this product everyday, but for those days when you're applying smokey eye looks this is the perfect product to use. You can purchase shadow shields for only 16.95 and you get 50 shields. You can also cheat and use one shield for two eyes. The shields will also last you a while depending on how often you use them.

My Thoughts and Pictures Swatches of the Mac Colour Ready Collection
Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder- Many are raving over this powder and I agree with the hype. Its better than the Make Up For Ever Hd powder in that it soaks up more oil and leaves behind a glow. Its my favorite new finishing powder and might even replace my BE mineral veil. The finishing powder is white but it works on all complexions even though its white.
Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone- Another most have for my oily girls. I'm so loving mac right now for coming out with two new products for oily girls. This little baby is another great products that helps get rid of oily complexion and reduce the look of pores. Over time it also helps to shrink the pores and after wearing it for a week I have already begone to see a difference. You can wear it as a primer as well as s skincare treatment.
Impassioned lipstick- A bright creamy hot pink lipstick that when applied lightly looks great on my complexion.
Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapid Black- Creates the perfect cat eye every time. I might even go back for another one just to insure I don't run out. If you're the type of girl who loves to line your eyes this is a must have since it always creates a flawless perfect black line.

What Lobe Wonder Says it Does :
- Lobe Wonder Support Patches work to repair the appearance of torn damaged and stretched ear lobes instantly!
- Each self adhesive oval patch is super-reinforced with a criss-cross network to strengthen and support ear lobes.
- Your ear lobes will look natural not stretched and dragged down by the weight of heavy earrings.
- Worn behind your ear lobe these invisible patches are the perfect remedy to the problem of heavy pierced earrings tearing.
I decided to try my Lobe Wonders with two different kind of earrings, the kind where the post comes together in the back and the kind that self closes. I find that the Lobe Wonders works best with earring in which you have to close with a post. Overall I give the Lobe Wonders 3 out of 5 stars. They did make my earrings less heavy making them easier to wear, but you can't wear them with every type of earrings. I also wish they there were less visible since I find if I want to wear them with a ponytail others can easily see the patches. Plus the backing can be very sticky and sometimes gets caught up in my hair. Within the next month I will be purchasing another brand of earring patches for heavy earrings and giving my review on those as well. Until then you can purchase Lobe Wonders on amazon. Many love them and you probably will if you prefer posts with your heavy earrings instead of ones that close.
