MAC from the Past!

21 Oct

Here is a collection of a few of my favorite MAC Cosmetic ads.  I think that they do some of the best cosmetic ads – not the typical glamore image of a celeb or a super model with a lipstick placed in the foreground.  I hope that you enjoy looking at MAC past.  continue reading

MAC Alice + Olivia Nail Polish:So Rich So Pretty

13 Jul

This colour is so beautiful and very different.  It has been the first time that I have tried a MAC Nail polish in about 7 years (remember the old square bottles??)  Well I never liked the old formula and I always skipped the polish collections because of my experience with previous poor quality MAC polish.  Then along came So Rich So Pretty in the Alice + Olivia Collection continue reading

MAC Cosmetics Alice & Olivia Collection

Launch Date: July 8th United States/Canada – I am not sure if this will be an international launch

This collection is a small little launch, seems like the Alice and Wonderland theme has crept through a few makeup brands this summer.  Although it is small there seems to be a bit of colour play going through the colours- transforming pigments and multi dimensional nail lacquers are being suggested! continue reading

MAC Dare to Wear

Dear Mac Lovers:

A Shocking Electric collection that is coming out at the end of the summer! How Exciting??!!

This collection looks fun an interesting, and quite bright.  I do not usually wear bright colours on a normal bases, but I still see products in the collection that I am excited to see and test.  For the lipglass I cant wait to test Bold and Brash and Wind me up.  For the eye shadows I am looking forward to testing out Aqua, Crazy Cool, Sassy Grass, and Winkle.  Thing about make up is there is no right and wrong- yes this collection is bright but you do not have to apply the colour heavily- Dont be afraid of colour- just figure out how to use it to make it work for you.  I will be playing with alot more of my colours and shortly I will start to post tutorials on how to use great colours and not look like a clown!!

Let me know what you are excited to pick up from this collection

My Thoughts:

I am very excited about this upcoming collection.  The mineralized skin finishes are all re promotes and I am looking forward to picking up Stereo Rose (I love comfort (MSF)- but it was launched in the Warm and Cozy collection earlier this year and I still have plenty)  I am in love with all the Cremesheen Glasses – I am not sure about Chillin’ this colour might be a bit too out of the box as it has grey undertones that I am not sure about.  I love all of the lipsticks- I am interested to see how the finish is on ” MAC Go for It” it is is sheer enough I think it could make for an interesting lip.  The Blushes are fantastic- i really do enjoy mineralized blushes as they leave a beautiful glowy dewy look on the cheek.  I am looking forward to trying them out, I have my eye on “A little bit of sunshine” “Happy Together” and “New Vibe”.  Of course I will have to wait to swatch them to know for sure but those seem like the winners for my skin tone. I have mixed feelings about mineralized eyeshadows – they are beautiful and I have a lot of them but I do not tend to grab for them as much.  I think this month (June) I will try and use them more so that I can get a better feel for them.  I find that I cannot put them anywhere around my bottom lashes as they make my eyes a bit irritated.  But in saying that everytime I do create a look with mineralized shadows they last all day and I get many complements. I the mineral finish very beautiful and they blend nicely as well.  So all in all I cannot wait until July 8th to pick up the collection 🙂   Feel free to leave comments on what you think, and what you will be picking up.
