MAC Cosmetics – New Studio Fix Mascara, Love Lace, Warm & Cozy Collections

As I am still pondering the possibilities of a New Year’s Eve makeup tutorial look (I’m thinking lots of sparkly stuff), I came across a new MAC Cosmetics collection list, and some of this stuff looks pretty cool.

MAC Studio Fix Lash Mascara

For the mascara fans, MAC has a new one called Studio Fix Lash Mascara! ($13) The wand looks a lot like the Cover Girl Lash Blast Length wand, dontcha think? I can’t get a good enough look at the puny pic, but I want to check this one out in person for sure.

MAC Love Lace Collection 2009

Love Lace

I looooove lace. Obviously MAC loooves lace, too. The new MAC Love Lace collection is all about muted blues, whites, a nude lip with some type of black lacey clothing or accessory to compliment it. About 4 or 5 years ago, I attended a MAC pro demonstration on how to apply lace to the eyes with lash glue. It was quite cool, but when I tried it at home, the lace hurt my eyes.. I guess I’ll have to try it again. Experiement around with it, it’s really easy to apply, just getting used to feeling it on your skin is the hard part.

MAC Warm and Cozy Collection

Warm & Cozy

I’ve heard of comfort food, but comfort cosmetics? I can believe it! Just as a nice warm bowl of steaming chili can make me feel all cuddly inside, so can a new lipgloss or blush. Call me crazy. The new MAC collection, Warm & Cozy has some lovely deep browns, some snuggly neutrals and once I get paid.. this stuff is going to be shipped. I am always looking for good browns!
