MAC Velvet Teddy and Whirl - Lena Talks Beauty

MAC Velvet Teddy + Whirl

MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick and Whirl lip pencil have been hot property for a while now, primarily thanks to Kylie Jenner. For me, the reason I was inspired to buy these is actually due to Youtuber Brittney Lee Saunders. Velvet Teddy is her go-to lipstick and whenever I saw her wearing it I would say to myself ‘I really should buy that’. Then recently I was at NZ Fashion Weekend and there was a MAC stall…so of course I popped in and finally laid eyes on Velvet Teddy in person, and the rest is history! I got the Whirl lip pencil as well because the MAC makeup artist applied the two of them together for me, and it looked so nice that I couldn’t resist. I truly am a salesperson’s dream!

NZ Fashion Week: ITZME and Julian Danger

This week is New Zealand Fashion Week, and I was lucky enough to be invited to attend one of the shows. It was the Wella Professionals Presents runway show featuring the Autumn/Winter 2016 looks from New Zealand designers Julian Danger and ITZME. The clothes were beautiful, and I also loved the look of one of the Julian Danger bags. Being a beauty blogger, I was paying particular attention to the makeup on the models. MAC Cosmetics did the makeup, and I have face charts and images of the models to share with you.
