MAC Sugarsweet Face of the Day

Hey, sweet thangs! Did you satisfy your sweet tooth with any bits of the MAC Sugarsweet collection today?


Though I still have to get my mitts on Aquavert Eyeshadow and Cakeshop Shadestick, I couldn’t wait to do a Sugarsweet face of the day.

I did a shimmery green and gray eye, peach cheek and coral lip with Club Eyeshadow and Lollipop Loving Lipstick — two colors from Sugarsweet which I already had in my MAC stash.

Since I’m still waiting to adopt Aquavert, I substituted it with MAC Warm Chill, a shimmery green eyeshadow from last summer’s Cool Heat collection. I patted Warm Chill on the lid, swept Club in the crease and then lined my eyes with MAC Eye Pencil in Coffee. For the lips I layered MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner in Gentle Coral beneath Lollipop Loving Lipstick (ooh girl, this combo is the shizz!). To finish the look I swept MAC Beauty Powder Blush in Eversun, a shimmery peach, on my cheeks.

I’m crushing hard on the Gentle Coral and Lollipop Loving combo. You should totally try it! 🙂

Anyhoo, how’s your Thursday been so far? It’s really warm and sunny outside right now, and I all wanna do is run around chasing butterflies like a hooligan, LOL! I think I have a bad case of spring fever…

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    aww you look so cuuute! loves the makeup. its weird cus i didnt really like much from Sugarsweet, but u made it work!and i have those earrings in yellow haaaay 😉

  2. Jess says:

    Karen you look gorgeous here as always and I totally agree with you about the lip combo :). I think I might just have to try it! As a broke college student, I don’t really allow myself to indulge in all these yummy new collections as much as I want to but I really am thinking I need to check this one out, its too pretty to pass up. And btw I never leave comments but I absolutely adore you and your blog to pieces, and read it religiously. Keep it comin’ 🙂

  3. Karen says:

    Hi Sarah,

    Thanks! LOL, we’re earring twins. 🙂

    What did you not like about the collection? The pastels? I was kinda freaked out about them. Thank goodness the release has a few more neutral shades like Club and Penny Shadestick, which I think make the colors more wearable.

  4. Karen says:

    Hi Jess,

    Hey gir! Don’t worry, soon you’ll be done with school, and once you’re in the working world it gets easier to feed the MAC habit. 🙂 Until then, I think that it’s nice to still indulge every once in a while, and you won’t regret this lip combo! The Tinted Lip Conditioner jar is HUGE, plus, you can wear it by itself in the summer. Oh, and it has SPF, too!

    Also, Lollipop Loving is so unique… it flashes from coral to green (but in a totally good way). I hope you try it!

    Happy Thursday!

    Ohemgee Karen that looks so pretty!
    I need some new products and I’m definantly looking into this collection.
    Btw, have you tried Lancome Definciles(I totally cannot spell that word) mascara? Total love. I got some in a gift and finally opened it today. Its almost as good on me as Diorshow.

    Anddddd I have those earings in pink too 🙂

  8. Catherine says:

    Aww, this is really pretty on you!! I totally want Cakeshop… And I can’t decide if I want to get Butternutty or Lemon Chiffon too. I really like your blouse as well. =)

  11. CC says:

    Karen, I finally found my crease!! My eye crease, that is. I watched your video “Where’s Your Crease?” when you posted it, but just tried it out earlier this week — it makes such a difference now when I emphasize my barely visible crease with eyeshadow :). (I always thought the eye crease was the same thing as the eyelid crease.) Next challenge: mastering the smoky eye…

  12. Bj says:

    Love love this look karen! you look gorgeous! I got such a stash of new makeup today! Aquavert and cakeshop! Picked up the heather too! Swung by and snatched a plantlove liner in black of course! Thanks for your amazin job on this blog, i love it so much. You’re so fabulous girl!

  13. lexi says:

    Cute – loving it! Is this out in stores already?

  14. Sarah says:

    yeea. that was exactly it. when i saw the collection i was like REALLY?? its too pastel and im not feeling the pink and pasty green eyeshadow… so the only thing i bought was the peppermint patty nail polish! love that green on nails but not on the eyes. atleast not for me 😛
    like i said, as much as i didnt really like this collection. YOU made it work! 🙂

  15. Ana_ says:

    Awww,your shirt and earrings match your makeup perfectly!You look so soft and girly.Adorable 🙂

  16. wendy says:

    You look lovely! My friend bought me the items I want yesterday, so hopefully they arrive soon (most of the time 1,5 week) I cant wait! 🙂

  17. TUPRNUT says:

    Very, very pretty, Karen! I had no plans to check this launch out but I think I’m going have to pay MAC a visit now. Shame on you. Always tempting me.

    Have a great Friday…. Hope San Francisco is as beautiful as it is here today 🙂

  18. Stef says:

    Karen, you look the vision of Spring!
    I was at MAC today, as you got me all hot and bothered for this collection. I got Aquavert and Cakeshop, omg-so good!!
    Lollipop Loving made me look like the walking dead, I was so sad (it looks amazing on you!)
    BUT…they had one Hello Kitty in Popster left! So I ahd to get that and an Electric Eel e/s too to make up for my sadness.
    I think Sweet Thing l/s is in the cards too…

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Tali,

    No worries, hon! 🙂 I’ll put a look with the combo soon.

    I hope you’re having a nice Friday so far!

  20. Karen says:

    Hi Kailey,

    That Lacome mascara is a fab! What color did you get?

  21. Karen says:

    Hi Catherine,

    Oh! I am on the fence with Butternutty and Lemon Chiffon! What do you think you might pair it with?

    That shirt’s from J.Crew! It makes me feel so spring. 🙂

  22. Karen says:

    Hi Tatiana,

    LOL! Okay, it has a weird green flash when worn by itself so be prepared when you try it on. It’s a totally good green, though. 🙂

    Please try it with Gentle Coral! You won’t be disappointed!

  23. Karen says:

    Hi Audrey,

    Yay! What do you think you’ll pair Lollipop Loving with?

  24. Karen says:

    Hi CC,

    Oh sweet! It took me awhile to find mine, too.

    Here’s the easiest way I know to do a smokey eye:

    Hope this helps!

  25. Karen says:

    Hi BJ,

    I hope you have a ton of fun with your new stash! You will have to carve out some time this weekend to play. 🙂

    What did you think of the rest of the Sugarsweet collection?

  26. Karen says:

    Hi Lexi,

    Yup, it’s already at MAC counters.

  27. Karen says:

    Hi Tuprnut,

    🙂 It’s a gorgeous, sunny day here! Hopefully it’ll stay that way for the weekend.

    How are you doing? Are you and Grace having a good day?

  28. Karen says:

    Hi Stef,

    Right? The Aquavert and Cakeshop combo is the hotness, isn’t it?

    I’m glad to hear that you got your hands on Popster! 🙂

    Oh, and would you believe I don’t have Electric Eel? Do I need to run out and get it ASAP?

  29. Karen B says:

    It looks so nice and pretty and cute 🙂

  30. Audrey says:

    Hi Karen – I just posted my look! I paired it with the Popster lip conditioner from the HK collection.

  31. cloudburst says:

    I plan on hauling tonight – Cakeshop (can I say how much I love greeny greys!), Aquavert, Dear Cupcake & the MSF’s…I still have to haul Grand Duos too – yikes!

    Love the look, I wouln’t have thought to pair club w/ Warm chill as it looks so red on me.

  32. Stef says:

    To me, Electric Eel is totally hot. BRIGHT blue and a perfect shade, not too baby, navy or frosty. And as a liner? Forget it, too beautiful! I couldn’t resist…
    I think you need it very soon. Today if possible!
