MAC Pro Store Visit aka Beauty Powder Dreams Do Come True
Once upon a time, two beauty blogger friends met up in San Francisco to visit the magical land of the MAC Pro Store on Union Street.
Karen and Christine from Temptalia walked though the door and were greeted by the most fantastic store manager, David, whom Karen immediately was enamored with after a he declared that just like her, he “was a fluidline, girl too.” Awww…
David with Christine. Homeboy knows his shizz, ya’ll.
The two bloggers scoured the store and OOHHH-ed and AAAHHHH-ed at several choice products, including the new loose beauty powders.
Please pinch me.
I narrow my choices down to the final three…
David brings out the Reflects Glitter and then we go nuts.
After an hour (or two?) and much deliberation (and self restraint!), both ladies leave the store with their bags o’ loot!

And to top off the trip and to celebrate Christine’s birthday, they head to Kara’s Cupcake shop and gorge on some HELLA DELICIOUS goodies. YUM!
Mystery of the day: Matte2…How Do You Pronounce It? and Matte2 Shadow Experiments
Question for you: do you say, “Matte Two” or “Matte Squared”?
Today I played with a few of the scarier Matte2 colors and did some eye experiments.
Post Haste (bright berry pink), Pen ‘n’ Pink (pastel pale pink), Handwritten (rich chocolate brown)
Post Haste, Fig.1 (eggplant purple), Newly Minted (rich sea green)
These aren’t usually my style but I thought it might be fun to see what I could come up with. I had a really difficult time blending and despite the fact that I’ve heard the color payoff is great I felt like I had to pack on *a lot* of color. However, the jury is still out on the Matte2 shadows. I’ll be spending more time with it over the next few days…hopefully I’ll be able to get them to work for me (crosses fingers!).
I can’t believe the weekend is over already! I need at least three more days off. 😉 Hope you had a relaxing Sunday!
