Girls, can we talk for a sec about how MAC handles color? The line has a rep for bright, bold makeup, but every so often they’ll come out with a collection that kinda throws me for a loop.

The creamy Cremesheen Glasses sure do shine and remind me of melting ice cream (*tummy rumbles*). I dig the mix of pinks, corals and browns — soft, wearable and fabulous (ha!) for daytime.
Um… what’s a Cremesheen Glass?
It’s like a MAC Lipglass only thinner, sheerer and creamier. All nine of this batch (some of them have appeared in previous releases) are now part of MAC’s permanent line.

I think the colors of these Cremesheen’s nicely complement the Lip Pencils here. MAC did a faboo job with a batch of everyday colors for a wide range of skin tones. If you have darker skin, take a gander at Chestnut, a creamy brown. I’m liking the way it looks on brown babes. And Paler princesses, check out Naked Liner, an uber-light and creamy neutral that almost looks like a concealer.

This afternoon I fell (ha! literally) for three of the (six) Lip Pencils — Mouth Off, Trimmed in Pink and Boldly Bare — but passed on the Cremesheen Glasses. Since MAC made ’em permanent fixtures, I figure I have some time to decide.
So how was your Thursday? What was the highlight of your day? Mine was the drive I took through my old neighborhood in Mill Valley. Someone lives in my old apartment now, aww… I hope they like it.
I also picked up a couple of mini-cupcakes that I’m saving for desert.
