MAC Dare to Wear Haul and Swatches

MAC's Dare to Wear collection launched today in stores so I got my butt over to MAC to check out them in person. I thought it was pretty cool that this collection was inspired by Lady Gaga. I was really feeling the rainbow aspect of these eyeshadows, but I'm really trying to hold off buying stuffie stuff until Fabulous Felines launches. I only bought Going Bananas and Sassy Grass (lol I love saying sassy!). The other three shadows are for my very preggo friend who kindly allowed me to swatch these for you guys.

Top: Aqua, Sky Blue, Crazy Cool. Bottom: Going Bananas, Sassy Grass

Natural light, Top row: Aqua, Sky Blue, Crazy Cool. Bottom: Going Bananas, Sassy Grass

Swatches with flash

Many of the shades in this collection were repromotes from the permanent or PRO collection. Aqua swatched well but was kind of chalky. Sky Blue took a little work to swatch but I liked the silver sparkle to it. Crazy Cool was very smooth in texture. Going Bananas took a little work but the payoff seems worth it and it also gleams. Sassy Grass is a matte and has great color payoff. I've never seen a green like it from MAC.

I decided against the lipglosses in this collection since I have my fair share of glittery glosses.

MAC Wonder Woman Spring 2011

We haven't even really stepped into the fall collections yet but here's the start of the Spring 2011 collections. You've probably already known about this collection thru Specktra (thanks to Heygreyness!) but here's WW's official announcement.

GIRL POWER: MAC Cosmetics said Wednesday that the company is partnering with DC Comics’ Wonder Woman to create a limited edition color cosmetics collection featuring the illustrated superhero. Set for a spring 2011 launch at all MAC locations worldwide, the lineup is expected to include lipsticks, eye shadows, blush and nail polish ranging in price from $13 to $49.50. (No word on whether metal-deflecting bracelets are part of the collection.)

Stuff I want is never on sale...

Of course it would happen this way: Nordstrom has an anniversary sale yet I want everything not on the sale. I did pick up a couple jackets and a watch for the hub's birthday, but for the most part I don't like buying fall/winter clothes in July. I wont need the cold weather stuff until December with this climate.

Stuff I didn't know I needed:

Nanette Lepore 'Lethal Love' Silk Top


Frye 'Melissa Button' Boot

Tory Burch 'Caroline' Pleat Front Tote

Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow 'Misty Mauve'

I really need to stop going to Nordies on my lunch break. Does this ever happen to anyone else: a store has a big ol sale and you find yourself lusting on the non-sale items?

With mesmerizing emerald eyes and a plush, silvery, sable-like coat, the Russian blue was brought by British sailors from the archangel isles of Northern Russia. Snatched from the palaces of the Tsars at the behest of Queen Victoria, her smile and her great beauty were said to amuse Her Majesty.

Wild, like her sleek sisters of the forest – the oc elots and lightning -fast lynx – the long-limbed, lithe ginger ocicat boasts legs like a legendary supermodel, and a persona every bit as exotic. But appearances can be deceiving – this is the kitten that roars, the lion that purrs, the wild thing that seems to possess a tender kittenish cuddle. To wit: A color collection as fierce as it looks, but as feminine as it feels…lips, cheeks and eyes that betray both sensual vulnerability and spectacular power.

MAC Fabulous Felines Part 1- Burmese Beauty, Fall 2010

I'm telling you, this is going to be my favorite collection of the year! Fabulous Felines is a 3 part collection (this is one part). Look for my updates in separate posts as I get more and more collection photos :) Meow...

MAC Fabulous Felines Collection Fall 2010
U.S. Launch Date: August 26th, 2010
International Launch Date: September 4th, 2010

Shades of sable, champagne and teak-olive, the Burmese is saucer-eyed and sensually compelling, prized for her sophistication and intelligence but woefully ill-equipped for the real world — she should never be let outside! Luxury, pampering, excess — all attend the Burmese in her indulgent glory. A color collection that celebrates the well-cared-for, and exalts in her high-borne right to be spoiled…she knows how to get what she wants. She’s a creature of luxury, and should be treated as such.

Prized -Pale yellow beige (Satin)(Limited Edition)
Skintone 2 -Mid-tone gold (Frost) (Limited Edition) (Repromote)

Review: Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer

I'd been looking for a new concealer but hadn't found something amazing and worth repurchasing. Drugstore concealers wear off after a couple hours and I couldn't quite find the right one from the fancy stores. I finally gave into the hype with Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer. Many bloggers have been posting that this is their holy grail concealer. I'm always hopeful when others make something their HG product, but I've been let down before. I'm happy to report, I'm not let down this time. This is my new holy grail concealer, yay!

Quick take: Buildable coverage, undetectable, lasts all day long. A+

From the Maybelline website:
Dream Mousse™ Concealer conceals with an amazing air-soft feel
-Air-whipped mousse texture feels lightweight on skin and builds opacity for settle-free coverage
-Completely covers dark circles, imperfections and redness
-Blends and smoothes away imperfections instantly
-Oil-Free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, dermatologist tested, safe for sensitive skin.
For Best Results
-Dot small amount of coverage onto flaw or imperfection or under eye.
-Pat with finger to blend.

Me gusta: What I like is my powder foundation doesn't cake up and look orange over it. It lasts all day long which is surprising being a drugstore concealer. It also features buildable coverage and it blends easily.

No me gusta: One thing you gotta watch out is if you dip you're finger in it you can get too much product. A little goes a long way I found out after trying to cover up something tiny and apparently getting enough product on my pinkie to cover my entire cheek.

This is one product I'll be purchasing again and again. I haven't used it as an under eye concealer, but it has great reviews for that on (I like my YSL Touche Eclat for under eyes since it brightens). Some complaints I've heard is that it can accentuate dry spots but some blogger (I can't remember who, sorry!) said you can alleviate this by using a wet brush. I haven't had this problem so I can't tell ya whether this trick works.

I love when I remember to take pictures when the product is unused...

Mmm mousse-y

Hope you're having an amazing Monday! I was thinking of having another giveaway soon so stay tuned :)

Love and Pixie Dust- MAC Digi-Pop: Glaringly Hip Lip Swatches

MAC's Digi-Pop collection launched today exclusively for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I only picked up Glaringly Hip dazzle lipstick during the presale in June. I wasn't too keen on these little glitter bombs, but I thought this one would look good over other lipsticks. The Dazzle Lipsticks from this collection reminds me of the lipgelee's from the MAC in Lillyland collection in lipstick form.

You can see swatches from this collection here. Although they look glossy in the swatches, they feel a little dry on the lips. They look like you'd be able to feel the glitter on your lips but I couldn't.

So did any of you brave the Nordstrom Anniversary sale? Whatcha get? Link me to it from the Nordies website :)
I heard parking was obnoxious for some of you. I love a sale but I always feel a little claustrophobic if I go on the first day.
