Look what the MAC cat dragged in...

Alright, so... I did it. I went back against my word not to get anything from the Style Warriors collection. But as time went on, I started really thinking about how cool Mercenary would look on my nails this summer (yes, it's rather sad that I spend time actually thinking about these things - but what else am I supposed to do at work when it's completely deserted at 8 in the morning ;)

So today, I took the plunge and I went in to buy Mercenary. As I was browsing around and turning my hands into frosty shades of gold with the help of the Solar Bits, I spotted the lustre drops and remembered Lisa (Lisasz09) talking about the Bronze Hero luster drops and how she used it to darken her foundation. Since I just bought (and fell in love) with Dior Nude and it matches my untanned face, I swatched Bronze Hero lustre drop on my hand and it looked SO good, I had to have it! I was envisioning it with Dior Nude having a happy union together once I'm nice and tanned, haha. Initially I was turned off by these luster drop things because I thought they'd feel heavy and be too shimmery. Not at all. Bronze Hero offered a great warm glow, and it dried quickly and left no greasy residue on my hand.

Sandra = a happy camper. Except I don't really camp.

PS: I also tried on a ridiculous bright pink full skirt at H&M today. I liked it, but it was way out of my comfort zone... I wish it was black or navy blue :(


  1. Sometimes it's good to venture out of your comfort zone!I really want to try the lustre drops but the collection hasn't hit the UK yet and I'm not sure if it will. Just a quick note to say that I love your blog. Great job!

  2. Loved this post! I have similar challenges. I am not a camper either ;-)

  3. Lol @ post name! The lustre drops look interesting.. Still need to get around to checking them out :)
