This tie dye maxi skirt was definitely an attention grabber for me. I had to make it mine! You have to be careful with this one though; it is completely sheer at the top, which is the part that happens to be white! I rolled up some black leggings to wear underneath so I wouldn’t accidentally flash y’all and everyone else my panties lol. This particular outfit showcases more of a comfy way to wear this tie dye maxi skirt. It is perfect for a day date or even a day at the mall. Anything that’s easy to pull on and off is an automatic win for me!

I took these in 100 degree weather, hence the sweaty face. Those that know me, know I sweat too easily and the majority of my outfits are taken in 10 minutes or less. Just let that simmer (no pun intended). LUCLUC gave me the opportunity to try a couple of pieces from their site to include in my outfit posts; I selected this strapless corset top and a gold necklace, which I will feature later. As you can tell from the photos, the blouse is super flattering and holds a strapless bra up really easily without having to constantly pull it up. Always a plus in my book!

Wet ‘n Wild Hemporary Solutions Color Icon Palette Review

This is my review for the final palette of the 3 palettes, 2 of which I have already reviewed. If you would like to check out my review on the Wet ‘n Wild High Flying Colors Color Icon Palette and the Wet ‘n Wild Boardwalk Boozing Color Icon Palette, click the hyperlinks shown in this sentence!
1011 12Out of the 3 palettes, this is my favorite. Why? Every single color is pigmented and has the most unique colors. For the most part, it was very difficult for me to locate dupes for all but 3 2 of the shades.

1315

For yellow comparisons, MAC Chrome Yellow Eye Shadow came to mind. Believe it or not, the MAC version is more pigmented; however, the simple use of a white base underneath will conquer these beliefs. Trust me when I say the Wet ‘n Wild version is amazing. You’ll see that yourselves a couple of days later when I post the makeup tutorial.

From my past experience, MAC is lacking with the greens in their lineup. I only had MAC Sassy Grass Eye Shadow to compare to this color and it’s nowhere even close. The Wet ‘n Wild version is more of a realistic, grassy green and is absolutely gorgeous on. I may plan a separate tutorial, aside from the one coming up, for this one.

MAC Swimming Eye Shadow is the only other sort of similar green I had in my collection to compare. As visibly shown, the Wet ‘n Wild green is much lighter and a lot more metallic.

For turquoise comparisons, I played with MAC Big T Eye Shadow and MAC Steamy Eye Shadow. Neither of them are close, although I would imagine mixing the two would help you achieve a very similar shade.

16

The Wet ‘n Wild white eye shadow in the palette is a dupe for MAC Gesso Eye Shadow.

I don’t own a MAC reddish coral such as the Wet ‘n Wild one, but I swatched MAC Orange Eye Shadow just to show you how coral this color really is. It’s absolutely stunning. (Hello there, future blush color!)

The Wet ‘n Wild color leans more pink, while MAC Louder, Please Eye Shadow leans more red. Honestly though, who cares? Grab yourself a red base, slap it underneath the Wet ‘n Wild pink and recreate Louder, Please all over again.

Make Up For Ever #99 isn’t even a true red when comparing it with this one. The Wet ‘n Wild has loads and loads of blue undertones and it swatches ever so beautifully. I can only imagine how well it wears as a cheek contour…or blush.

So this palette is something serious guys. If you couldn’t afford to buy MAC, you can now with this palette! No one has to know what you’re really wearing and this proves it. Who can tell the difference by simply gazing at the colors? I know I can’t. It seriously appalls me when people assume I’m wearing MAC just by how bold and intensely pigmented people “claim” their stuff is. If they only knew, what else was out there…well now you do! Now get to searching high and low for these because they are all worth it, especially this guy! Check back tomorrow or the next day for a makeup tutorial using this look. Love ya!

DSC_0270DSC_0286Maxi skirts are so simple to style, so comfortable to wear. No lie; I have this same skirt in about 5 colors lol. At any time I don’t have time to think about what to wear, I can grab one of these and get out the door. It can even work in the office; just bring down the high slit with a few safety pins underneath the slit and BOO-YAH! I know because I did it lol. Seriously though, grab you at 1 high slit maxi skirt from Boohoo. They are super cheap and even if the high slit isn’t your thing, here is the comparable version with no slit! Oh…and this off-the-shoulder blouse…I got several different ones from A’GACI haha. Stay tuned for outfits with those as well. Kisses! XOXO

Fashion Blog Sale

Good morning! This is my first official fashion blog sale. I am over buying hangers and forcing stuff to fit in my closet, so I figured, what better way to clear out some space than getting rid of items I probably won’t wear again? The good news is that I have outfits wearing most of the items so you can see how everything fits. Quick shopping etiquette and info:

1) I will not hold any items longer than 48 hours. If you request it, have the money ready for it.

2) Open internationally.

3) I only accept PayPal and all applicable PayPal fees will be considered collectively with shipping/handling pricing.

4) All items come from a pet and smoke free home.

5) Shipping fee is $4 for the first item and $0.50 extra per additional item.

6) I will ship your item(s) within 72 hours of receipt of cleared payment. Please take weekends into consideration.

7) All shipped items come with delivery confirmation, but if you feel the need to add insurance, please do so when you request your item(s) so I can add applicable fees to your PayPal invoice.

8) Send your requests to mbc.youtube@yahoo.com and I will send your invoice ASAP.

9) All pricing is firm; however, I may budge when selecting multiple items for purchase. Just ask! :)

10) Most photos are clickable in case you would like to view more angles of each item.

I think I have all my bases covered lol. Happy shopping beauties!
