I recently was introduced to The Buffs collection from Maybelline and I am in love. This collection comes in 10 amazing shades to compliment different skin tones. (925 Maple Kiss is not shown below)
PC: Dulce Candy
I was able to try out 920 – Nude Lust
The formula for this shade is very rich & creamy and gives off the right amount of light beige color.
Have your tried any of the shades from this collection? If so – what’s your favorite one?
I absolutely will be picking up some more 🙂
I’ve been lusting over ‘Watch Me Simmer’ for so long now. It was a part of the February ’12 CookMAC Special Edition Collection and is long gone from the stores now. I finally found it on Ebay for only slightly higher than retail (which is $14.50) and I knew I had to get it!
Watch Me Simmer is a bright & spicy coral shade with a pink undertone and has a super pigmented finish. It’s the perfect summer shade but I think it’ll transition well into the colder months since it will bring a pop of color to an all black outfit. It’s also very creamy but I still suggest to moisturize before applying.

Excuse the undereye bags… it was a long day at work!
What do you think about this color? My only con with this shade is, if you over apply – your lips will literally glow in the dark by how neon it can be….. therefore, apply with caution!
As with all special edition shades at MAC, once they are gone – good luck trying to find it again. So I did some research and I found a perfect dupe that also is a lot more affordable.
