Face of the Day for a visit to the MAC counter

Face of the Day 9.22.11

Face of the Day for 9.22.11: MAC and some drugstore

I always like my makeup to look great when I go to any place where cosmetics are sold – I mean, why not? You wouldn’t go to the dentist with dirty teeth right? Well, today I was visiting my local MAC counter, so the majority of what I wore is MAC only. The MAC collections for LE products are in parens. Breakdown is below….

MAC mineralize skinfinish in crystal pink

I am here to talk to you about my HOLY GRAIL HIGHLIGHTER!!! Yes, thank you MAC for rolling out my favorite highlighter ever. This is ‘Crystal Pink’ MSF from the new Semi-Precious collection. I bought it with two other eyeshadows when I went to get my new collection goodies. I was attracted to this color and my plan was to use it as a highlighter. It’s a very pretty cool pink with a marbled center. Read on for the fabulous review……

MAC Surf Baby Swatches and Review

      So, I am one of those people who is addicted to the new limited edition MAC releases. This was the collection I was most excited about this summer. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to the counter early in the collection, so many of the items I wanted were sold out. These sold out items were most notably, the eyeshadows. I will say that the MAC employees ALWAYS offer to call other counters for me and they did on this occasion also. I didn’t get my sold out stuff because I didn’t want to travel to the MAC that had the items in stock. But, that’s okay! I absolutely LOVE all my loot from this collection, and hopefully this post may help you decide if you want to go grab you some too.

So, First are the eyeshadows. They released two crushed metallic pigment stacks. Anyone who knows me also knows I have a weakness for pigment. Pigment makes for such bold colors that I can’t resist. I actually hit the counter wanting the ‘surf the ocean’ stack, but it was sold out. I checked out the other released stash, ‘summer stash’ and really liked it. Summer Stash has two lighter champagne-y type pigments, one deep brown, and the most beautiful purple eyeshadow I think I’ve ever seen! I cannot tell you how much I am loving these pigments right now! They are crushed pigments, so that means they are chunky and you crush them up with your brush before applying them.

Swatches are below and no primer was used.
