My review of my classmates blog ! Another politically incorrect blog

I originally only looked at my classmates blogs because it was required for my class assignment to be honest, but I am very glad that I did. While everyones blogs were so very different and interesting the one that stood out to me the most was Brittany’s Another Politically Incorrect Blog. I felt very compelled to read through each post versus just looking through the pictures which I tend to do from time to time.

I have to admit I do not follow the news as much as I should. Normally I do get all my news from social media. I had no idea that “Anonymous” released names of alleged KKK members, but Brittany’s blog post has intrigued me to do more research into the situation. All things done in the dark will eventually come to light is my opinion on the matter. I feel that the KKK members should be exposed just the same as anonymous will someday become exposed as well.

I look forward to reading more of Brittany’s blogs in the future as I am a firm believer in #BlackLivesMatter. Most of all #AllLivesMatter. I have a bi-racial family and we are all as equally important. Unfortunately racism exist from every angle still in the world today, and I think we will always have to fight just a bit harder because of the color of our skin.

I have always wanted the regular Lorac Pro  and Lorac Pro 2 palettes, and I decided I couldn’t pass up on the Mega Pro 2 palette with the cost being so close to just one palette with all the colors that are included. I was surprised at how well this product blends and how creamy  the texture is. I wasn’t sure if I liked the colors in this as much as the regular Pro palette, but as soon as I swatched them I was just in love!!! The colors are so beautiful!

MAC Magic of the Night Holiday 2015 Makeup Collection features shimmering new eye shadows, tempting lipsticks, 1 highlighter, 1 bronzer/highlighter and more. The collection became available in stores this October 2015, and the highlighters sold out almost instantly. The collection was highly anticipated for all Mac lovers out there, and I was so luck to get both at $33.00 US dollars each!

Oh, Darling – metallic gold – Highlighter

Oh Darling quickly became the most popular, and most anticipated makeup item in the collection. It is said to be a dupe for a Mac previously released limited edition highlighter called Whisper of Guilt. I was not luck enough to get my hands on that one. I am very happy that I managed to snag this one, and look forward to putting this baby to work for the holiday season.

The underdog award goes to the Mac Shaft of Gold. I believe shaft of gold is still being sold at Macy’s. So be sure to check there if you are interested. I absolutely love this color on my dark skin as a highlighter. Its a lil dark for pale skin, but I honestly feel that all skin tones can get some beautiful looks with this highlighter.  What have you been loving from the collection???
