Sometime today, between shaving my toe hairs and vacuuming the stairs (Tabs is shedding like cray cray!), I had an affair…
It started innocently enough with a crush (as they often do). I’d played with three of the nine new MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow Trios ($19.50 each) from the upcoming In The Groove collection. One thing led to another, yadda yadda yadda and BAM! — I couldn’t stop myself.
We’re supposed to meet again this Thursday when the collection arrives on counters.
Shh! Don’t tell El Hub.
If you’ve ever tried any of the older MAC Mineralize Eye Shadows, these are different. MAC reformulated them, and while I still love the old school formula, this new one takes the cake. MAC stepped up their game, creating a product that’s basically everything I ever wanted in a powder shadow. Silky soft, they apply like butter on toast, depositing ample color and blending like a dream. Shoot, the colors almost blend themselves! — and so far today they’ve lasted from my first cup of Irish breakfast tea all the way through dinner.
If you had fallout trubs with the older Mineralize Eye Shadows ending up on your cheeks or beneath your eyes (sometimes I did too), I think these adhere WAY better to skin.

Promise me you’ll think about swinging by a MAC counter to take a look at these if you can. If you weren’t a fan of the O.G. Mineralize shadows, I’d be curious to hear what you think about these. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
How was your day? Not too crazy, I hope. I had grand plans to exercise tonight, but my legs are still mad sore from my run yesterday, so instead I rented a French romantic comedy on iTunes called Prête-Moi Ta Main (in English it’s called “I do”).
The description sounded interesting… It’s about a single guy with an overbearing family determined to see him get married, and to get them off his back he hires a woman friend to play his fiancé (sounds like a French Pretty Woman, but without the prostitution).
Let’s hope hilarity ensues!
How about you? What are you doin’ tonight? Anything fun?
