Yes there is another line coming out at MAC next month. I don't know - they seem to love to put things out so fast that you can't really think about whether you need it or not. You just buy. This must be their system - I don't know what genius (or evil genius?) thought this method up, but I have to say this collection is looking pretty dang good. And our friends at temptalia already put up the pics so I am gonna post them here for your viewing pleasure.


Creme de Violet


Et Tu, Bouquet?

--Ok how amazing are the lippies and the ROSE BLUSH? Wow, I am really liking this collection. But I have to keep reminding myself - I will not buy just for the packaging, I will not buy just for the packaging, I will not buy just for the packaging.

It's not working. Oh well, this collection rocks.

Ok, this post is a long time coming - I have been putting it off for too long. But let me just say....Wow Style Warriors is totally catching my eye! I am LOVING this stuff! On the last post I did about this I said, ok I hope they get the animal print packaging right so it looks more CoCo Chanel and less Trailer Park mama with Virginia Slim.

So here it is, the formal unveiling of the Style Warrior packaging.......

Sugar Sweet Full Review - Photos, Swatches, Releasing Soon!! Part Duex




Review this collection or leave a comment!

Release Date:
March 19th, 2009

Sugar and spice and everything nice—MAC is delivering once again with its new collection titled Sugar Sweet. The collection is set to release on March 19, 2009. This collection is sweet for a few different reasons.

First of all, the collection has shadesticks! If you’ve never had the chance to use a MAC shadestick, you are going to want to try one now. A shadestick is a smooth a rich eye shadow in the sleek format of a stick. It brings a whole new dimension to eye shadow application. I love the shadestick and I can’t wait to try the Red Velvet color.

The collection line also includes regular eye shadow, lipstick, tricolor lipglass, mascara, nail polish, mineralize skinfinish, and false eyelashes. It really is a pretty complete collection of everything you would need to create a finished look. I think one of the most intriguing things in the collection is the tricolor lipglass.

This lipglass isn’t just one tone, it includes three different colors. My first thought was that three colors might be too much, but then I thought of how many times MAC has presented something that didn’t look fantastic; it is definitely a rare occasion. I will wait until it comes out to make a final decision, but for now, I will continue to be intrigued. Everything that is rumored to be in the collection is listed below. If we learn of anything else, we will be sure to update the list.

• Bubbles - Sheer frosty white beige (Glaze) (Repromote)
