I’m Raving Mad over this shadow

By LMD84 on September 3, 2011

I was extremely fortunate to have a lovely Specktra member CP me one of the MAC refill shadows that was released as part of the Cinematics collection.  For some reason MAC decided to release a number of refill shadows as part of this collection ‘internationally’.  However this did not include the UK, only Germany, France and Spain.  Keep on reading to see which shadow grabbed my attention.

MAC Sized To Go – my experience with a mini Cleanse Off Oil

By LMD84 on August 11, 2011

MAC finally released the Sized To Go collection in the UK this month I was very excited.  Not only am I a sucker for mini sized items (mini nail polishes, mini hair products, mini chocolates… you get the idea!) but I thought it would be a great way to try out some products I have been interested in for quite some time.  Because the items are mini it means that they are cheaper than their full sized versions.  This is great because if I don’t like a product it means I haven’t wasted lots of money on it.

An eye popping FOTD

By LMD84 on August 10, 2011

Only after taking photos of myself for this FOTD I realised that my eyes looked so much bluer than they usually do.  My eyes are a little bit of a chameleon anyway – depending on what make up I wear they can ‘change colour’ from grey, blue to green.  If you want to see what products I used to get this eye popping look then keep reading.

Warming up with MAC Warmth Of Coral blush

By LMD84 on August 9, 2011

I hadn’t planned on buying any of the blushes from the MAC Semi Precious collection, however after having a chat with Janice I decided I had to buy one. She said these mineral blushes were so soft and silky and very pretty. I decided to get Warmth Of Coral because I felt like I didn’t have anything similar in my collection already. Keep on reading to see if this blush impressed me or not!

Keeping it silver, smokey and simple

By LMD84 on July 29, 2011

It’s rare when you find me wearing something other than bright eye makeup.  However on occasion I have been known to rock a silver smokey eye.  I always use the same technique and today I thought I would share it with you.  If you want to make the look more dramatic you can use darker shades, or keep it soft and well blended for a sexy daytime look.

Thanks so much for watching the video and please subscribe to the Specktra Youtube channel here for many more videos.

Lou’s Blue MAC Quad

By LMD84 on July 28, 2011

I must admit that my blue quad is one that I don’t reach for that often.  Mainly because I don’t actually wear blue shadows that much.  However here in my blue quad you can see four of the first blue shadows that I owned from MAC.
