This is a huge rave for MAC pigments. The entire line is made up of the most stunning vibrant hues with wonderful staying power. I puchased Vanilla and the Norstorm clerk gave me the tester of Pink Opal. The vanilla has just a smidge of gold shimmer while the pink opal resembles the colors in an opal. They are lovely on the lids and in the pots.
My last week haul also included the lipstick Dainty Cake. It is a shimmery coral peach. It is a new color shade for me. I also gobbled up more corals such as monarch, cockatease, sizzlepeach(a shimmery lipglass) and Tartlette(no shimmer). I think I have corals on the brain. I keep drooling over chunky coral beads and the coral branches. There is a great coral branch necklace on Neiman Marcus.com. It retails for around $600.00.
Another great makeup purchase I made a few weeks ago was the Lancome skunk brush. I can not believe I have lived this long without it. MAC also makes a skunk brush but it appears to be sold out everywhere. I am so grateful Chattykathy introduced us(me and cavewoman) to this brush. It deposits just enough color on the cheek. The brush also looks adorable. I highly recommend this to everyone who wears blush. You will never be the same.
