Rise and shine, you marvelous Tuesday morning makeup warrior!
I neglected to mention my MAC mall adventures at Nordie’s yesterday, and you’re the only person I know who would appreciate them.
So, when I stopped by the MAC counter yesterday I had the best intentions, I swear. All I meant to do was pick up a bulk pack of MAC Wipes and leave. Zip in, zip out.
LOL! Yeah, right though. When has that ever happened?
I expected to only be there for a minute or two, but the Nordie’s in Corte Madera rearranged their entire beauty department into these long aisles, like in a Sephora, instead of the regular department store layout, where the different brands have their own circular islands.
In other words, I got distracted. I started swatching on the back of my hand and snapping pics on my phone, lost track of time, and before you know it, I’m typing a new MAC wish list on my phone.
This is only about the ten thousandth time this has happened…
I’m saving this list for the next time I need to do some serious stress shopping.
My Feb. 2014 MAC Stress Shopping Wish List
- MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul ($25): I wish the swatch below of this mid-toned beige with gorgeous golden pearl conveyed the shimmer better because it looks deceptively flat in the pic. In person, I think it’s breathtaking… Reminds me a little of the Hourglass Ambient Powders. I bet it would look incredible on cheeks as a subtle blush/highlighter and partner well with the bolder smokey eye looks I love.
- MAC Pro Longwear Lipglasses in Whoops and Forever Rose ($20 each): I always get so distracted by the regular Lipglasses and Plushglasses that I usually forget about the Pro Longwear Lipglasses, which is terribly unfortunate and silly of me because I also think they’re great. These two — bright coral Whoops and mid-toned neutral Forever Rose — really stood out to me yesterday. Both look perfect for spring and summer. Gloss lust! I haz it.
- Eye Shadows in Coppering, Antiqued, Twinks and Mythology ($15 each): I’ve been on a MAC permanent eyeshadow kick for…I dunno. I was gonna type “weeks,” but it’s almost certainly been longer than that. I’ve also been mining my makeup bag for old favorites, like last weekend, I spent some time with Amber Lights, a warm and shimmery peachy brown I’ve loved for years. I started looking for shades to wear it with at the counter yesterday and found this combo of warm colors, which I think should complement Amber Lights nicely, along with Costa Riche Eye Khol (my current liner jam!).
There you have it — the three latest things on my latest MAC wish list. How about you? Is there anything new on yours?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. No heat in the house yet, but my love for makeup is keeping me warm (that and a space heater). You have a great day, ‘k? Talk to you soon.
