I've been eyeing these sexy little boots by Christian Siriano which are part of the Payless collection. When I finally got to the store they were sold out of my size so I had to order online. I ended up getting them on sale for $49.99 and they feel comfy as can be. There are so many cute outfits these would go great with I can't wait for the weather to get a bit cooler =)



Mac Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation Swatches

I was curious about Mac's new Matchmaster foundation, so when I went to the counter to pick out some things from the Styledriven collection, I asked to take a sample home. The MA gave me a sample of shades 1.5 and 2, not sure which one would suit me better. For reference I am NC30. I haven't actually worn the foundation out yet so I have no review to give, but here are some swatches compared to other Mac foundations.

 Left - Mac Matchmaster Foundation 1.5 / Right - Mac Matchmaster Foundation 2

All Mac Swatches - Matchmaster 1.5, Matchmaster 2, StudioSculpt NC30, SFF NC30, SFF NC35

 Swatches under different lighting
All Mac Swatches- Matchmaster 1.5, Matchmaster 2, StudioSculpt NC30, SFF NC30, SFF NC35

Here are the swatches a bit more blended

Mac's Matchmaster Foundation in 1.5 seems to be a bit too light and also pink compared to the NC30's. Matchmaster Foundation in 2 is a bit deeper, and a bit more peachy and less yellow than the NC30's, but pretty close. Since the Matchmaster foundation is supposed to let your real skin tone show through, it should not matter if the color is slightly off in a swatch. For someone who is NC30 I would probably suggest shade 2, or even the next shade darker. I think 1.5 would be much too light.

Quick Simple Eyes with Inglot

I've been loving Inglot's eyeshadow in #501 so much lately. #501 is a light matte grey with silver sparkles. It almost has a slight purplish hue to it when on and has minimal fallout compared to some of my other inglot shadows. Its great to wear if you want a slight smokey eye but nothing too intense.
