Viva Las Vegas!


Sorry gals, I haven't posted this weekend, spur of the moment, the BF decided that we should go to Vegas Friday night, and I figured ok i'll just post when I get there, then I find out there is NO INTERNET CONNECTION! So that wasn't fun...hence I could not post at all this weekend. :(

However! I did go to the MAC PRO store Las Vegas, I think I am going to make it a tradition in my travel adventures to hit up every MAC PRO store in each city I go to.

I picked up more MAC Pigments: Cool Pink, Emerald Green, and Your Ladyship! I know last time I went to the Pro store in NY, I didn't think Emerald Green was the green I was looking for because it looked too light, but then when I swatched it in Vegas, it was a lot more beautiful than it was in NY! Deep green with lots of shimmer! Your Ladyship is sold out in the MAC stores near where I live so I am really glad they had it! It's a gorgeous creamy beige with shimmer, almost looks like a light gold at certain angles. Almost like "Provence" pigment, just lighter and more shimmery. Cool Pink is really pretty, I just have to figure how to use it right because it's matte and sometimes it comes out light pink and other times it's almost a lavender/purple. We'll see....

Close-up of the 3:

We went to Planet Hollywood and they had BET's Celebrity Poker and we saw Nelly, Kat Williams, Mekhi Phifer, Eddie Griffin, Orlando Jones (7up commercial guy), and a bunch of other comedic celebs whose names I forgot. I was so star struck when I saw Nelly, he was blinged out! And they were all seriously so nice talking to everyone in the crowd. I brought my crappy camera which is why the pics came out blurry. :(

How a million dollars looks like!

We were walking back to the car when we saw DMC! He was super nice!

My BF then won me a zebra! My favorite animal! I named him Ziggy of course. :)


Ziggy and Daddy:

what shade do you wear in Silk Naturals foundation?

Vanessa said...

Thanks ladies! Psychoexgf-I love the masque lipstick! It's a nice nudie pink color...but yes there are times it makes me look a bit washed out, I just add a lipliner to pop it out more.

Hoa- I use the warm gold foundation in Silk Naturals, of course you customize your own shade, but that's the base I use along with the white powder.

petitebelle said...

yay more piggies! Can't wait to place my order.

RF said...

That is just TOO COOL!

I wish I could just drive to Las Vegas! I love Poker it would have been cool to go.

How did you decide what make up to take with you?

I definately need Emerald Green!

Stephie said...

ate take me to vegas next time :D i'll hide in your suitcase lol :) wow the emerald green pigment is beautiful! after your last post on it, i was going to skip it, but now i'm definitely getting it :D did you see the landscape green pigment there? i think it's matte, but it looks gorg on the website.

looks like you had a great time! i love the zebra :D

nilla cookie said...

Sounds like you had an amazing time in Vegas! We used to do that when I lived in Orange County. Now that I'm in San Francisco, we just hop in the car and head over to Lake Tahoe! Only LT doesn't have quite as many celeb sightings as you had!

I love Masque on you too. I have to add gloss over it on me because it makes me look super pale - I feel like a corpse!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Vanessa! Emerald Green looks so beautiful! :( I don't have any pro locations where I live :( :( I've been wanting that pigment for so long. You seem to travel a lot and hit up those pro stores from time to time! Do you think you could do me a CP for Emerald Green pigment pretty pretty pretty please! I'm sometimes tempted to go ebay but they are either fake or expensive. Boo! :(

Vanessa said...

Thanks ladies, haha Nilla tons of people told me that masque made them look like a corpse haha, I think that's why I use lipliner with it sometimes to bring it out a bit more...

Elizabeth...CP? The MAC PRO store near me is in Los Angeles, and traffic sucks going there which is why I do it when I am traveling, but don't worry I might be going back to Vegas this week so let me know! Email me instead.
