Two Ways to Win MAC Style Black Midnight Media Mattene Lipstick

Published in: Just For Fun, MAC Makeup


I’m so glad it’s Friday, ladies, and I’m looking forward to some high-intensity relaxation and makeup fun. I may bust out a brazen lip or sparkly eye and then park my bedazzled bum on the couch in front of the TV. That’s how I live on the edge. πŸ™‚


Do you ever wear outrageously dramatic looks and then just stay at home? I do — a lot. What do you think of MAC Midnight Media lipstick for indoor fun? It’s a dark black matte lippie from the Style Black collection, and it’s something I’d probably wear a little more often at home than out of the house.

Hmm… Methinks it’s time for a giveaway.

The prize

One lucky lady will receive a tube of MAC Mattene Lipstick in Midnight Media from the Style Black Collection (a $14.50 value).

  13. amy says:

    I am going to play around with the goodies I bought from the Magic,Mirth and Mischief collections. I also play around with outrageous looks when I am at home but I end up going out anyway because I like to see people’s reaction to it and get some feedback from girls and guys from makeup counters.

    I haven’t done that a lot here at home because my mum keeps on giving me weird looks then but I have done that a LOT while in Ghent and if I was tired of studying… I used to do that with my roommate. She’d come up to the kitchen (my room and the kitchen are linked, hers was the floor below) and say: Karen, I need some make-up destraction. Then she’d do my makeup and I’d do hers. It was hilarious!

  67. Sylvie says:

    I intend to wash my backpack this weekend. Firstly, the last time it was washed was back in 2006. Secondly, it was my birthday on Tuesday and the very moment I stepped out of my building, a pigeon crapped on me big time. It wasn’t even a polite poo, it was like pigeon diarrhea. I had to send my recently dry-cleaned coat (which is white) back to the dry cleaners (of course I had to go to school covered in crap because I was already running late and the first thing I had in the morning was a test). So yea, top priority is washing my backpack. I’ve no idea how to do that but I’ll figure it out. πŸ˜€

  68. Jen says:

    Get some homework done ahead of time to break that procrastination habit, and hit up my friend’s birthday/housewarming party. I luff weekends.

  69. LauraJ says:

    I flew to MN to surprise my mom for her 60th birthday!
