MAC Viva Glam GaGa / Cyndi, plus more spring launches!

My big trip to Sephora should be happening on Saturday, so I’ll have updates soon after that! I am going there to check out the Tarina Tarantino makeup collection and try on a few goodies while I am there.

New for Spring 2010!

MAC Viva Glam 2010
MAC ‘Viva Glam VII’ Lipstick ($14 each @ Nordstrom / Macy’s / MAC Pro Stores)

This is the highly anticipated collection of Viva Glam lipstick from MAC.. starring the shock-popstar Lady GaGa and 80s pop legend, Cyndi Lauper. Although I am not a GaGa fan, I am a super-fan of the Viva Glam GaGa lustre formula light blue / pink lipstick color, which has been a signature color of mine for years (I wear the matte YSL version, and NYX). The Viva Glam Cyndi is a lustre formula shade of a light reddish coral.. this is also a must-have! Do not forget that every cent raised through the sales of Viva Glam lipstick go to the MAC AIDS Fund to help support the fight against AIDS / HIV. A hot lipstick shade with a good cause, it can’t get better than that!

Givenchy Powder Blush
Givenchy Le Prisme Blush Powder Blush
This is a four-color blush palette with gorgeous high-pigmented shades that you can use all together or one shade at a time. This product allows you to customize your color! I am loving the It-Girl Purple, and since this is a Sephora-only product, I am going to defs test this out on Saturday!

Available in the following colors:
– Aficionado Peach
– It-Girl Purple
– In Vogue Orange
– Fashionista Brown (pictured)

Kim Kardashian Fragrance
Kim Kardashian fragrance (starting at $16)
Ok, so I want to see what all the “stink” is about. Since I hear that Kim stole her fragrance logo from a jewelry company logo, and that she probably stole her fragance scent from J. Lo (that is just my joke, not a rumor!) I gotta see what the fuss is about and if this product actually delivers.

Laura Mercier Mattifying Gel

Laura Mercier Secret Finish Mattifying Gel
($27 @ Sephora) and the
Laura Mercier Smooth Focus Pressed Setting Powder – Shine Control ($32 @ Sephora)
I have oily skin and the summer months ahead only mean trouble for sebum control! I am always trying new things, so this might be just what I am looking for. This Secret Finish Mattifying Gel is a shine-controlling liquid-gel formula that you can use to touch-up your shiny areas through the day, you can even dab this over makeup! The current mattifyer that I use by Clarins (in a little red pot) breaks my skin out within an hour. I really want to give this one a try! Along with that, there is the Smooth Focus Pressed Setting Powder for shine control, another product that looks excellent for oily skin!

Make Up For Ever Creme Blush
Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Cream Blush ($25 @ Sephora for .33 oz)

Want a healthy and lasting glow? Well, this new cream blush in a pump looks awesome! The blush combines mattifying & reflecting powders to create a soft-focus glow.

Can’t wait for my mall trip! I hope I don’t spend too much.. my taxes are coming back soon, so we will see!
