MAC lovers, mark yo’ calendars! Three brand new MAC collections hit counters on May 1st — Naughty Nauticals, Dazzleglass and Skinsheen Leg Spray.
I like the sound of Naughty Nauticals and love the ocean, so I’m particularly excited about the pink, coral, red and blue colors prominent in the collection.

All of the colors in the collection have big glitter shine with large pearl particles. I predict Dazzleglass will make the club girls go crazy!

I’m not too hip on big glitter, but I’m dying to check out “Pleasure Principle” because it’s one of my favorite Janet Jackson songs. With the exception of the chair leap, I could duplicate Janet’s entire routine back in sixth grade. OK, well, not quite duplicate…
It’s the principle of pleasure!
Also set for release May 1 are the Skinsheen Leg Spray products. These mousse coloring agents blend well and apply quickly to add color to legs, arms, shoulders and decolletage. I’m mildly curious about these because, according to MAC, the polymers they used for Skinsheen can last through two washings (cool and ICK!). And, truthfully, what I really want to know is if Skinsheen will help disguise the stretch marks on my bum when I’m wearing a bikini. I hope it does, girlfriend!
Skinsheen Leg Spray ($22.50)
Medium – Sheer, soft golden caramel with soft gold nuances (international only)
Medium Dark – Sheer, soft bronze with golden tan-pearl
Dark – Golden bronze
Deep Dark – Deep, warm bronze with rich golden pearl
MAC suggests using the 179 buffer brush to apply Skinsheen. Save your pennies ’cause the 179 will set you back $52, yowza!
Happy hump day! What kind of day are you having so far?
This morning I got crackin’ on a small freelance writing assignment. It’s on the significance of the Hawaiian hula dance, but before I started my serious work-related research, I did a little self-help “research” into the lovely Christian Bale…
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
