MAC Hayley Williams Collection Daydreaming and Sounds Like Noise Swatches and Review!

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers!  Happy Tuesday to you all!  I hope you're all having a lovely week so far!  I've recently started to become a little more creative in my makeup so when I saw that MAC was releasing a line of orange makeup in conjunction with Hayley Williams of Paramore, I had to check it out!  

I bought both this eyeshadow and lipstick when they were released last week!  Now, without  further ado, on to the makeup!

MAC Daydreaming is a vivid coral leaning orange shadow that's full of a pearly finish.  This is a VERY pigmented eyeshadow which I love!  I love that it's kind of frosty and has a lot of shimmer to it because it makes it much more wearable.  It's super soft the touch and just goes on beautifully.  Here is how I wore it below with the Kryolan bright palette, Illamasqua liquid liner and mascara and Urban Decay 24/7 liner on the bottom.

I honestly had no idea how to pull of an all orange eye but I love how subtle it ended up being while still maintaining a fun pop of color!

Sounds Like Noise is a BRIGHT orange matte lipstick!  I was really surprised at just how bright and pigmented this looked on my arm and kind of loved it!

Luckily on the lip it's slightly more toned down and gives a great juicy look to it.  This is a very matte lipstick so I made sure to exfoliate and moisturize before applying it and after 6 hours, it's still wearing strong!

Here is my full Orange look from today:

The MAC Hayley Williams Collection is available online at their WEBSITE.  Sounds Like Noise lipstick is $15.00 USD and Daydreaming Eye Shadow is $15.00 US as well.

What did you think of this look?  Would you wear all orange makeup for the day?

NARS Madness Nail Polish for Summer 2013 Swatches and Review!

Good morning my fellow lacquered lovers!  Happy Tuesday to you all!  I hope you are all having a lovely week so far.  It's absolutely gorgeous weather in NYC right now so what better way to enjoy the lovely weather than with the first Summer 2013 nail polish of the year to show you!  NARS is releasing a gorgeous 1970's inspired collection this summer and the nail polish is simply stunning.  I was sent this nail polish to test out by NARS PR and it's really beautiful.  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!

Above:  3 thin coats of NARS Madness

Madness is a gorgeous vibrant bright orange jelly nail polish.  NARS describes it as being an electric orange and that's pretty spot on.  My nails literally look like they are glowing!  Since this has a jelly finish, I did three thin coats to get full opacity and it still has that thick, squishy like appearance that jellies have.

All in all, this is a beautiful summer polish!  It's insanely bright without being a neon and the translucent jelly finish just gives it a lot more depth.  The formula was a bit thick which is usual for a jelly and why the three thin coats seemed to work best.  NARS Madness will be released on April 15th for $19.00.

What did you think of this polish? Must have? Any dupes?

Lacquered Lover Goes to Work for Sarah Potempa!

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers!  Happy Wednesday to you all!  Exciting stuff happening in my world these days!  I wanted to share with you all my amazing new job!  I am officially the Social Media Manager for Sarah Potempa Hairstyling Tools!  Now, some of you might know of my obsession with top knots and the first product I ever tried from Sarah Potempa's line was the Wrap Up during NYFW!

I was seriously obsessed with my Wrap Up on the runway!  Then  you may remember my Vine video about how to use the Wrap Up:

Finally I had the pleasure of meeting the Sarah Potempa team and once we decided it would be a good fit, I started yesterday!  So today, I got to try out the amazing Beachwaver curling iron!

LOVE the waves in my hair!  And how cute is the packaging?  The offices are also AMAZING!

Yep that's a beach scene!  All in all, I'm super excited for this wonderful opportunity with Sarah Potempa and be sure you check out her website, Facebook and Twitter/Instagram @sarahpotempa !
