MAC’S SIMPSONS COLLECTION

SIMPSONS MAC COLLECTION
SIMPSONS MAC COLLECTION

I’m sure you have all heard of the cartoon The Simpsons.  MAC has decided to make a Marge Simpson collaboration collection!

I still don’t know how I feel about this collection.  I’m just being honest. It’s a weird pair up.  The collection will consist of an eye shadow pallet of 4 different shades, a blush, lip gloss, and some false eyelashes.

Out of the collection, I think I would only purchase the blush.  I have to see and swatch it in person before I decide to spend my money on it.

I was never a real Simpsons fan.  It looks like a fun collection, but I just don’t see myself purchasing  the bold eye shadows.  I have a ton of MAC eye shadows that I haven’t even hit pan on it.

The Simpsons MAC collection will be available August 28th online at MAC Cosmetics and will hit MAC counters on September 4th.

What are your thoughts on the Marge Simpsons MAC collection?  Are you going to be purchasing anything in the collection?

Adovia Mineral Lift Serum Review

PR Sample

Adovia mineral lift serum

This isn’t your typical face serum. Most serums are liquid or gel-like. This one on the other hand is a creamy lightweight white cream substance.

Face serum

Adovia Mineral Serum is a semi cream base, but as you can see in the picture above, it glides as if it’s melting while moving. It’s not a greasy feeling at all and does not have a scent to it.

I’ve been using this twice a day, morning and night in my skincare routine all over my face and neck.

It will definitely stay in my skincare routine unless I find something better. So far, this hasnt broken me out so I’m very thankful for that!
