Well...I didn't shop nearly as much as I could have!!!
So Satruday I went to the launch event at Mac Cosmetics in West Nyack, New York for the NEW SHOP MAC Collection. I will admit, I had complete anxiety beforehand because the weatherman insisted on a snow storm and I was almost certain that I had to cancel (clearly, I need to worry about more important things :P ) ANYWAYS, the storm shifted, we got very little snow and I was still able to keep my plans ::phew:: I was super excited about this launch...more excited than I was for the Benefit Cosmetics event because I LOVE MAC!!! I honestly don't have as many MAC products as I would like, but when I finally do get around to buying myself some stuff, I am thrilled!!!
My sister, and product launch side-kick, and I took another trip so I could try out this new collection, and it was totally worth the excitement! First of all, the woman who did my make-up was fantastic!! She was funny, sweet and really knew how to apply make-up (unlike the disaster in NYC! I know...I'm being mean). I immediately told her to have fun with me, and she did, making my eyes an extraordinary purple...and of course...I bought the palette she used (what else is new????)
How about SHOP MAC??? Well...the best way I could explain it is a BRIGHT, VIBRANT and FUN collection, in which MAC uses these "Stepford Wives" models to brand their new line. This new collection offers three x4 shadow palettes; Call Me Bubbles which have beautiful warm colors (great for Fall actually); Colour Added, which consist of beautiful cool colors (one color is a very subtle turquoise that is to die for!); and finally, there is Shop & Drop, the palette with four STUNNING purples (see below).
My sister took some photos of my eyes after I was finished trying it out, but unfortunately, my camera is on a weird setting where the colors get washed out (I can't figure out how to use my camera for some reason). I will experiment with these colors and show you how gorgeous they really are!
Also in the collection are six SHOP MAC Lipsticks (all pink toned shades). Their names are: Innocence Beware!, Watch Me Simmer, Naughty Saute, Quick Sizzle (my favorite), Dish It Up and Runway Red. In addition, five SHOP MAC Kissable Lip Colours named: Enchantee, Woo Me, So Vain, Scan-delicious (favorite) and Flaunting It. LAST, but certainly, NOT LEAST, three SHOP MAC Creamblend Blushes in: Optimistic Orange, Florida (fave) and Restores Dazzle! All of these colors were great, but I didn't end up buying anything else from the collection. Not because I didn't like them (trust me, I would have bought them all!!!) but because I already have colors similar to them.
Needless to say, I was most impressed by their colorful and lively eye shadows. The packaging on this product is amazing. I am kicking myself for throwing the box away because the design was so cool and fun. I was able to grab a screenshot from the MAC website so you can see what I mean (see right).
Soooo...yeah...I only bought the one palette from this line...but seriously...did you think I left with ONLY that??? Nay Nay...I ended up buying Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner in Undercurrent, an incredible teal shade, Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle (which I just ADORE) and I finally got myself the Fix+ Finishing Spray which makes my make-up look so soft, fresh and smooth!
Another fun-filled day of make-up and I am looking forward to future product launches! It's so much fun to go out and explore different kinds of cosmetics!!! Give SHOP MAC a try...you won't regret it! Remember...Spring is coming...time to break out all of those bright colors :)
"I'll take one of each please!"
