It’s finally here folks!!!! The Mac Snowball Mini Lipstick Collection hit stores about a week ago! I had a calendar appointment set in my phone to order the day the Snowball Collection came out! The Collection release day came and the only thing Mac didn’t release was the Mac Snowball Mini Lipsticks -_- I had to wait about another week for Mac to release the minis, and when they did, they sold out pretty much instantly. All that waiting and I failed to get my dream Lipstick Collection. I was sending texts to my husband all day long telling him how heart broken I was and him just laughing at me because I was heart broken over something like lipstick.
The very next day, it finally hit me! Ulta sells Mac Cosmetics! So I reached for my phone, went to Ulta.com and bam! Ulta had the Mac Snowball Mini Lipsticks in stock!!!! My life was saved!!! My husband wouldn’t have to receive another annoying my life is over because I didn’t get my lipstick set text ever again!
Just look at how pretty the packaging is!!! So sparkly!!! So pretty!!! I’m undecided if I want to take the Mac Snowball Mini Lipsticks out of the case and display then with my other lipsticks or keep them in the fabulous case!!!
The shades you get are
So many colors!!!!
So many fabulous and pretty colors!!!
Just look at those colors!!!!!
The Mac Snowball Mini Lipsticks aren’t too Mini either! For a set only costing $69, you get 12 decent sized lipsticks! I was nervous at first thinking watch! They will end up being slightly bigger than those Avon lipstick samples my mom use to get when I was a kid. Thank god that was not the case! Slightly bigger than half of a full sized Mac Lipstick tube! Best deal ever if you ask me!
Since this set only cost $69, not pricy at all if you’re a makeup lover. One full-size tube will cost you around $20 after tax, this is a total steal! I’m guessing once people start holiday shopping, this set will be impossible to find. Even at retailers like Ulta! So you better snag yours now before they are gone!
What are your favorite shades of lipstick? Are you a pink fan? Red? Or are you all about the nudes ;-)

Ahhhhhh Fall!!!! I have such a love-hate relationship with this time of year! I love fall festivities. Hello pumpkin patches and Thanksgiving! Fall fashion and makeup is also my ultimate favorite to shop for, but ughh!!!! Living in Western New York, fall weather isn’t exactly that glamorous. Half of me wishes we could just skip this gloomy, cold & yes, sometimes snowy season and go right back to summer and all that glorious sunshine!
Since I’m not a weather god, and gloomy weather is here to stay, there really isn’t any point in whining about it. I mind as well focus on the fall fabulousness that does bring a big ole smile to my face such as all that Fall fashion and makeup I go gaga for!!!
Schwarzkopf Color Ultime
Fall also happens to be that time of year I give my hair a little break from all that bleach and go back to my natural roots! That’s right, good bye platinum blonde and hello golden dark blonde hair using my totally awesome, go-to home coloring system Schwarzkopf Color Ultime!
Hair color that defies fading for up to 9 weeks of color shine!
If you’re a natural blonde, then you know the struggles of keeping your hair looking shiny and fresh! Natural blonde hair tends to ALWAYS look “dirty”. That’s why when I go back to my natural roots,Schwarzkopf Color Ultime in Dark Blonde is my ultimate favorite!!! 9 weeks of color shine is exactly what my golden locks need to stay looking nice and fresh and over the top fabulous!!!
Thankfully, Schwarzkopf Color Ultime is easy peasy to use!!! You literally just unscrew the big white bottle. Squeeze in the color cream. Shake well. Do a quick patch test to make sure you will get the results you want! Then place the color on your hair and let it sit for however long the directions state! Once you’re all finished with the coloring process, rinse the dye off using the conditioner provided, and poof! You’re hair will be looking mighty fine as long as you followed all the instructions in the package and followed all safety instructions!
Schwarzkopf Color Ultime challenges you to take your own “box picture”!
Honestly, I don’t think you can get any closer when playing with shades of blonde!!! True to box” color results is exactly what I got using Schwarzkopf Color Ultime!! Very happy with my long lasting color results that’s for sure! I’m ready to take on Fall now that I have all that Color Freshness my hair was craving!!!

Fall Fashion Must Haves
Now, what y’all have been waiting for!!! My Fall Fashion Must Haves!!! Think of this as my version of Oprah’s Favorite things, fall fashion addition lol ;-)
These are the staples I suggest you rotate this fall. Use these suggestions and I promise you, EVERYONE you encounter will be eyeballing you and tossing nonstop complements at you. Nothing better than being the chicest gal in the room!!!
Thats right, glitter!!! It was all over the runways and it’s on the shelves everywhere!!!!! Be ahead of the heard and start rockin a shimmery gold lip and even adding a few sparkles to your eye makeup! Perfect for a date night look or girls night out!
This is the time of year where a tan/brown/nude eye can definitely transform your look!!! The best part of tans and nudes is that you can rock that eye all day AND night!!! Socially acceptable!!! My favorite eye look when I’m working all day and want to head to happy hour without switching up my makeup!
Again, Browns, tans and nudes tend to rule the lip world during the fall, but if you’re feeling a tad bit more adventurous, go for a deep red or even a purple. I love a dark red lip! A gold shimmery gloss can also dress up a nude lip. Just brush a little ontop of your nude lip to add a little glam to your look!
Heading our with the girls?!?! Fall is the perfect time to add a little glow to your face!!! Use all those darker tans and browns!!! Fall is the perfect time to use those darker glow shades we tend to over look the rest of the year!
Plum nails are my all time favorite during the fall!!! Almost black, but with a purple tint!!! Totally chic!!! Dark red nails are also super fun to rock. Feeling a bit more traditional? Go for that nude nail. This is the time of year you will be thought of as being chic and not just safe when choosing to go “nude” since nude is “in”!
If you live where there is warmth and sunshine this time of year, your shoe options are endless!!! If you’re up North like I am, we are kind of limited on what we can actually wear on our feet past that fabulous Insta photo! Heels might looks all sort of trendy, but they don’t mix well with rain and snow!
A strappy pair of flats will go a long way! I can’t go anywhere without getting nonstop complements when I wear mine! You will also want a pair of black low cut boots. They match everything!!!!! And they are totally chic! Two pairs of shoes you can wear in any type of weather conditions.
I am so happy fur is gracing us with its presence for another year!!!! Fur accents are so fun! And warm. Just make sure you opt for the faux fur! I’m a furbaby lover and faux is the way to go!
Thats right, velvet!!!! This is a trend people either love or hate! I for one love it!!! So I have been rocking velvet for over a month now! Can’t get enough of it!
The zipper trend is something that was taken right off of the runways!!!! Just a tad bit more normalized for every day wear. Zipper necks are totally in! Even zippers in shoes and sleeves!!!
Floral was in all summer long and thank you Fashion gods for bringing it into the fall!!!! I seriously can’t get enough of the flor trend. So pretty, feminine and chic!!!
Leather/pleather leggings are totally in!!! So fun to style with bulky sweaters!!!! If you were looking for a way to dres up your favorite sweater, leather leggings will do the trick!
It’s not fall without bulky sweaters!!! My all time favorite fall fashion must have item!!! So warm, cozy and totally chic!!!! Perfect for layering on those days where it’s winter in the morning and summer in the afternoon!!
What are some of your current Fall fashion favorites? Have you tried anything from the Schwarzkopf product line?
