So, this month I didn’t really buy any new makeup product. I’ve been uninspired by MAC launching one collection after another. I feel like all the products seems like something I already have in my collection. Even if I didn’t own it, I think I can mix some of the colors I already owned to get a similar color. So, I’ve been in the “use what you have” mode.
MAC 182. Whoever said that MAC 109 is the smaller version of 182 is probably right. For some time I traded my 182 with my 109 when I use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. Recently I discovered they give a totally different finish. When I use the MAC 182 it gives a sheerer more natural finish than when I use the 109. Somehow, the 109 just puts on way too much powder, in my opinion. Unless you’re trying to make your Mineralize Skinfinish to give you a medium coverage, I suggest using it with a 109. Oh, by the way, MAC 182 it’s one of the softest, densest brush you’ll ever encounter.
MAC Fluidline in Dipdown. I know a couple of months ago, this product was in my out list. As an eyeliner, this will still continue to be in that list. However, Romero, one of the senior MAC artists, used this like a cream shadow on the lid and paired it with Omega on top and blended out to the crease. It gives a really nice finish for a natural smokey taupey brown eyes.
MAC Bronze Eyeshadow. This eyeshadow has been in my collection for some time. But, I always felt that it’s way too dark to use during the day time. I recently tried applying this with a 217, very very lightly, and it actually works. I paired it with a bit of Shroom under the brow bone and a mix of Cork and Brule on the crease.
Messy room. I’ve been sick, so, my room is a bit of a mess. I can still navigate my merry way around the room but it’s starting to get harder to move around. Oh well, better get those vacuum cleaners and brooms out.
Sore throat. Funny story here, I thought I caught some strep throat since a lot of people have been sick recently. So, I went to the doctor and this is what he said, “Well, you don’t seem to have a fever and you definitely have no pustules on your throat that would indicate a strep throat. Since this is not a regular occurrence, I can’t give you anything.” Thanks so much, doc! Yeah, so, I’ve been drinking lots of warm water with lemon and honey as well as herbal tea to soothe my sore throat and a bit of cough drops.
What is it about? Frank Moses (played by Bruce Willis), a former black-ops CIA agent, is now a RED (Retired, Extremely Dangerous). He is struggling with his newly found quiet, monotonous, retirement life until one day his house was attacked and he became a target of assassination. He found a companionship in Sarah (played by Mary-Louise Parker), a costumer service agent, whom he often chats with on the phone. When he knew his life was in danger, he had to kidnap Sarah to protect her. Frank had an opportunity to reconnect with his former CIA team mates to figure out who was behind his assassination attempt.
Why it’s good? This movie has a good blend of mystery, action and comedy with a hint of romance.
Who should watch it? This is a good movie for a date night. It is one of those movies that both guys and girls would enjoy. It will definitely lift up your mood and make your date a memorable one.
