This looks pretty interesting, I love the packaging!
A two-in-one mascara that lets you choose if you want lashes to be naturally defined, or instantly combed and loaded for full-on drama. Easy to use dual-wiper system allows this lightweight formula to go on either way. One wiper refines the application for a clean sweep, while the other loads the lashes for greater impact.

Hmm.. I thought MAC said brows were OUT for Spring ? Uhhh.. “makeup” your mind.
Anyway, here is what MACPro.com has to say about this new collection, which to me, looks like brows decided they were back in for next season, but I do see how this still fits with the “Unglamour” theme:
” Intent on a universal focus, a collection that extends our range with new shades to match every international skin tone. But that’s not all. Because brows speak louder than words, two new products to help you express their style. In every language these are wow! ”

Sheesh, we haven’t even opened our holiday gifts yet and already I have the 2010 MAC Cosmetics Trend Report for Spring & Summer. I was actually a little turned off by the whole introductory description of it, but I guess I need some pictures to prove that it’s something to get excited about.
The “Anti-Glamour” season is coming… does that sound depressing or what?
Of difference: we’re at a moment in beauty when identikit perfection looks positively passé. Touching on tribal elements with striking originality (underground society), taking a couture approach to nude makeup (pale ‘n’ dandy), feeling the heat of a carefree, sun-warmed vibe (american nomad) or getting creative with the murano-glass palette being passed about (dye-a-tribe) feels eminently more interesting and appropriate. “The essential point with makeup this season is that it’s about projecting emotion and attitude, about not looking the same as everyone else,” explains Terry Barber.
Gorgeousness of last season has been replaced by marks of urban grooming and freshness; or, of making one unexpected, attitude-projecting beauty statement that employs striking colour and construct to a punchy end. On both counts, the quieter leaders of individuality are important in showing us what’s to come: a mascara-less lash and the ubiquity of a bleached brow both emphasize the features, planes and shadows of the face to instantly underscore its uniqueness. “It’s definitely an anti-glamour season,” confirms Gordon Espinet. Bring on the tribal gathering!
All I could think of is that we are all going to end up looking like bleached out like Tilda Swinton (Narnia). No mascara? Bleached brows? How can this be cute?
Look #1: Underground Society (AKA: The Cullens? Seriously. This is Edward Cullen meets Courtney Love) It’s all about not looking cute.. it’s about expressing individuality by being a minimalist. What if my individuality is multi-faceted..and being cute?
MACPro.com Description: An aerodynamically misplaced streak of liner. A lip packed in Pigment or duo-chromatically constructed…a hardass brow. “It’s more of an attempt to project an attitude of individuality and a sense of ownership than about looking gorgeous in any traditional sense,” explains Terry Barber.
Gordon Espinet “These makeups are all about one element on the face. Rather than defining the features, it’s almost more about the product being an accent on a practically naked face… it’s minimal makeup, maximum impact, and definitely with an edge.”

Look #2 : Pale N’ Dandy. Wake up and do nothing. Just walk out the door, I guess.
From MACPro.com: Take bleach to your brows… (Ok.. people at home reading.. I caution you.. do NOT bleach your freaking brows unless you have experience doing this. Go to a salon if you really want to do this!)
Or pull them into distinctive focus. A brow, or distinct lack of one, is essential on this season’s uncomplicated face…sit them on skin that’s under-refined yet ultra-alive with gloss and light-reflective textures…ensure your lips are fresh and free of colour…leave lashes bare. Such are the touchstones of this season’s über-nude look. Yet, there’s nothing alien or odd about this pallor. Pulling reference points from English aristocracy and portraiture to grooming on the verge of grunge, this girl is tough, urban and consciously plays with a certain androgynously sensual beauty. (Did I NOT say Tilda Swinton like ten times already?) She doesn’t care a lot, but she cares enough, and minimal amounts of makeup upgrade what’s naturally there. It’s a look brought to life by the dominance of shine-enhancing textures. “It’s about pale with a texture to it,” says Gordon Espinet. Hydrated and bathed in light, this skincare-effect makeup is low-level languid for the most enigmatic feel. “It adds a vulnerability and openness to the face,” says lyne desnoyers.
Tiffany Johnston “Gloss texture on the eye and brushed through the brow is officially the most popular product of the season.”

Look #3: American Nomad. I’m loving the whole beach girl Chapsticked lips look with the gold eye. Very Brooke Shields in Blue Lagoon.
From MACPro.com: Surfer girls after a day at the beach…
California tans in shades of dusty sands…Peter Lindberg meets West Coast hippie: this summer’s girl has eased up on her spf 50 obsession and faced the elements for a dusky tan. “It almost seems like a non-beach tan…more like she’s been stuck in the desert for a day,” says Gordon Espinet. So she’s got a relaxed athleticism that’s all about skin and sport; a play on boyish bravado with a tawny, tan cheek. It’s about going lo-fi with high-tech products to achieve the most translucently youthful and health-pumped finish possible. Get laid back, soak in the sun-warmed vibe, and think “discreet and effortless” with the season’s gentle take on bronze…
Charlotte Tilbury “It’s healthy, honeyed, recession-proof makeup…Sports Illustrated ’80s icons and gorgeous athleticism.”

Look #4: Sculpture Club I’m pretty much loving this.. no soft focus, just hard outlined textures. Pretty cool.
From MACPro.com: Natural is a built beauty for A/W09. After seasons where a more scrubbed, virginal pure complexion stood at the fore, what looks new for naturalness now is a distinctly constructed, considered forming of the face. In terms of effect, think ‘surgery’ without the ‘plastic’, but regards technique this is sculpting, highlighting and contouring at its most advanced.
“Highlighting and contouring is seriously back – it’s all about those old Eighties techniques and tricks that makeup artists used before retouching…I’m doing a lot of triangular shapes to contour and thinking about contrasts between matte and shimmer and light versus dark,” declares Charlotte Tilbury. “It’s punk couture,” adds Tilbury, who was also feeling “lots of burnished reds and coppers – offbeat Eighties colours, super super blended,” she stressed. And make that blending professional, please. “This is photoshopping, pre-photoshop,” says Val Garland, commanding that “it’s not finger makeup, it’s brush makeup.”
Val Garland “We don’t live in a photoshop world so we need to use technique to get there: the more blending you can do on contours the less literally Eighties they’ll be. Use brushes, and don’t buy cheap, buy well.”
Charlotte Tilbury “It’s recreating that feel of ‘80s album cover beauty.”

On November 9th, I celebrated my 33rd birthday! I received awesome gifts and even bought myself a gift for my aging skin. hahah!
I remember when Strivectin came out in Macy’s stores where I was working at the time, and everyone was obsessed with StriVectin. The product was originally made and sold as a stretch mark cream, but some ladies that received samples of the product thought it was for their face and they saw awesome results. So now, StriVectin is being sold as both a stretch mark cream and face cream.
I purchased the StriVectin Holiday Gift set at Beauty.com for $99. I thought that was a pretty good bargain since I just wanted to try the products and not commit the the expensive full size bottles. Here’s what you get in the kit:
- StriVectin Neck Cream – StriVectin Neck Cream is the first and only StriVectin formula specifically developed for the sensitive neck area (including the decolletage). StriVectin Neck Cream dramatically reduces the appearance of “turkey neck”. . .lifting, shaping and refining as it produces a smoother, younger-looking contour.
- StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Existing Stretch Marks – Clinically Proven to Dramatically Reduce the Appearance of Existing Stretch Marks (prominent because of their length, depth, texture, and discoloration). Alters the Appearance of Tone and Texture. Significant, Corroborated Results Seen by 93% of Subjects Tested.
- StriVectin-SD Eye Cream – Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles around the eye. Includes additional soothing agents for the delicate skin around the eye. Same active formula as the original StriVectin-SD? without aromatic oils.
Nothing says Happy Birthday, you 33 year old like a bottle of wrinkle cream! Actually, I am loving everything so far. It seems like I am having minor breakouts, but not sure if it’s from this product. My skintone seems to be clearing up, as in, less red blotches and freckles, in just two days of using this product. The eye cream feels tingly, but the package says that is normal. I do feel like the puffiness is reduced after a few minutes. The neck cream is very moisturizing and although I have no issues with my neck (yet) I am going to continue to use this for preventative purposes!
If anyone has used StriVectin and either loved or hated it, leave a comment about your experiences!
Now on to the good stuff…
MAC Showstopper Matte shadow (Discontinued, but similar to Espresso) Used Brandon brand eye brow angled shaper brush. I applied Benefit High Brow under brow highlighter pencil BEFORE putting my brows on. It helps the brow powder go on smoother. See my brow tutorial : CLICK HERE
I first applied Urban Decay Primer Potion in Nude (UDPP) to entire lid, except where the Benefit High Brow pencil was applied. I used my Mark. brand small, synthetic, rounded concealer brush to apply the MAC Chromaline Black Black Gel to the inner and outer sections of my eyes, only on the bottom lid area, leaving about a half inch blank space in the middle where the copper pigment eye shadow will go next.
I used what people sometimes call the “foiling” technique when applying loose pigment eye shadow. I washed off the above mentioned concealer brush and left it damp. I took a little bit of an old Benefit Cosmetics copper pigment, which looks exactly like the MAC Copper pigment, and applied that to the blank space I left on the bottom lid of my eyes. I used a patting motion to blend in the black edges from the black MAC liner gel. Very lightly! We are going to cover this area with gold glitter, so it doesn’t matter too much if it’s blended in perfectly.
My favorite part is putting the glitter on! (For more detailed info and pics, see my Glitter tutorial!) I used the MAC Gold Glitter, which is a Pro MAC product and can only be purchased at a MAC Pro store location (or ebay.com). Sometimes MAC comes out with limited edition glitter sets that include the gold glitter. You could even find glitter at a craft store, but make sure it’s not huge chunks! The MAC glitter I use is pretty fine. I use eyelash glue to apply the glitter to my lids. It works the best for me and doesn’t fall off while I am out dancing, partying, etc. I use the Ardell lash glue, which comes out of the tube white and dries clear. I made a small dot of glue on the back of my hand, then put a small amount of glitter next to it and mix them up. Using my clean synthetic concealer brush again, I apply the glue/glitter mixture over the top of the copper pigment. I did not put too much on, I wanted the copper pigment to show through just a little bit. I used a hair dryer on a low setting to dry the glitter and glue.
Next, it was time to start doing my crease shading and lining the eyes. I used MAC Sketch eyeshadow in the upper crease, using my NARS Angled Eye Shader brush to blend the crease. I dipped the brush into MAC Star Violet Eye shadow (brown/plum shimmer) and swept the color ever so slightly across that crease just to give it a touch of the shimmer from the shadow. I lined my eyes using the MAC Chromaline Black Black gel liner on top and bottom, then used the MAC 219 pencil brush to fill in the MAC Star Violet eye shadow under the lower lash line.
The mascara used was Lancome Fatale comb wand mascara in black.
Pegasus pendant by Betsey Johnson.
Face and cheeks
For foundation, I used two different brands and formulas. I first filled in my pores and covered blotchy areas with Boots No7 Intelligent Balance Mousse Foundation, in Almond, which is a very thick mousse foundation that leaves your skin a bit dry when used alone. I applied a small amount all over of Maybelline Superstay 24Hr Makeup in Sand Beige. The only powder I used was a very light dusting of MAC Belightful Pressed Powder, which is a heavy shimmer powder, so I concentrated most of it on my cheek area. I applied MAC Pink Swoon blush. (Bright pink, doesn’t look like the picture on the MAC Pro site.)
This is sort of my signature lip look since I made it up and people keep emailing me about it! hahah! RAD! I used YSL Rouge Pur Lipstick #22 Pink Celebration (Cotton candy pink), over the top of MAC Pinkie Pro lip liner. On top, a coat of MAC Lip Varnish in Polish Me Pink. (Discontinued, neon pink sheer lip gloss)
I used a huge barrel curling iron (1.5 or 2 inch, I don’t know!) to curl my entire huge head of hair. It took about 20 minutes total. People ask me how I swoop my bangs and it’s SO easy I could die. Instead of curling my bangs under with the curling iron, I curl them up towards the back of my head. First, I spray a very light mist of hairspray that has a light hold. I part my bangs to the side, combing them through to make sure all knots and kinks are out. Holding my bangs straight out in front of me, I curl the bangs up towards the back of my head and hold for about 5 seconds. I let the curl cool off before combing it out. Once it’s cooled off, I start combing downwards and hand-styling them with a little hairspray sprayed on my fingers. I spray everything with a mist and then go!
I had an excellent birthday week, starting off with a great dinner at the Rainforest Cafe in San Francisco. I got some awesome gifts.. check it out!
My fiance gave me an iPod Classic, which holds 40,000 songs. Amazing! Why doesn’t everyone have this??
My mom got me the most comfortable pair of red Cole Haan shoes. They are patent leather red Mary Jane type athletic shoes. I think they are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever put on my feet.
This is the Coach Gramercy embossed accordian zip-around wallet, given to me by my lovely close friend who obviously has great gift-giving taste.
Now this is what I call a deluxe makeup gift! My awesome friend knows exactly the way to my heart.. makeup and cuteness! This adorable box set by Too Faced cosmetics, “World Domination”, is too freaking amazing. There are eye shadows on top with powder liners and brow filelrs, lip palette on the bottom and bronzer and blushes that pop out on the side of the box. Not to mention.. it’s a music box! Needless to say, it was one of the best birthday’s ever.
I always look forward to seeing the MAC Cosmetics Holiday collections! Since I always seem to get MAC goodies from friends for Xmas, I might as well hint as to which ones I want.. haha!

The new MAC Cosmetics Process Colour Collection is something I need to get my hands on STAT! You know I love color.. er.. colour. I am going to get the Process Magenta & Black Black Chromaline gel liners and possibly the Process Magenta Paint Stick. (I use those as a blush!) I already have pigments similar to the Process Magenta one, but that does look awesome!
Anyone in need of a boost of “colour”??
Ok, so I’ve been into shoes lately and not makeup. There is always a stream of cash flow going in one direction, and that’s been high shine patent leather ballerina slippers.. in purple. I have an obsession with purple, red and gold lately. I smell a tutorial coming.
Besides my shoe fetish of the month, I’ve been noticing that I am getting a lot of views coming from LiveJournal lately. I did a little digging and found that I am either being linked on a journal or made fun of.. one or the other. There is one particular LiveJournal that I found, heh, one that makes fun of people who are goth or punk, and other people who tend to prefer alternative makeup styles. Now, I will admit that I found it funny at first, until I realized that I, myself, indeed.. may be listed on this journal as a “bad” makeup doer. I can’t find the post that I was listed on, but I find it quite amusing that this pathetic little girl wastes her time sifting through Google and Yahoo image searches to find pictures of people’s makeup. Ohhh.. if only the youth of today would spend their time learning something valuable. The bitch isn’t getting paid to write, so I don’t see how the journal can be of value to her. Difference between me and her.. I get paid.. she doesn’t. End of story. If you’re interested in seeing the blog, or perhaps are curious to see what she wrote about me (I still can’t find it) please view it here: LIveJournal BadMakeup
On with the show…
MAC.. oh dearest MAC, money sucker of my wallet. What do you, pray tell, have in store for me this Fall / Winter / Holiday.. lord. Thanks to the lovely lady at http://temptalia.com, I’ve seen a sneak peek.
MAC DSquared² Collection Launches on Oct 12th.
Well, I am seeing a huge trend with the bold lips. Dark burgundy, maroon, deep purple, reds, lots of serious kissers coming in the cold months ahead. I am not excited about dark lips, to be honest. I think it’s too high maintenance for me.. but after seeing the new MAC lip color, “Blood Red” I am dying to try on that deep berry shade and turn on True Blood to watch Sookie and Bill make out.
MAC In High Def Collection Coming next week, Sept. 10th
I love high def makeup even though I think that sometimes it’s a scam. The collection this season isn’t anything new, it’s basically the Face & Body Foundation, Mineralize powders and brushes. Whooopeee do. Been there and done that. I love it all, don’t get me wrong.. but we’ve seen this stuff.
For those who love Marc Jacobs fragrances (I have them all!), get excited about the new Lola fragrance, which is Daisy’s older sister. heheh! Gorge bottle and I have no idea what it smells like, but the bottle is to die for!!
I also am interested in checking out the Sephora Perfect Ten Brush Set, which is a $150 value priced at only $72!! It looks like just about everything you need is included in the set.
I just got the Beyond Belief Facial Cleansing & Makeup Remover Towelettes from Sally Beauty Supply and I have to say.. fantastic! They are refreshing and just awesome quality for only $4.29!
Enjoy your extended weekend, folks and I’ll be heading to the beach! (Then to Catalina Island later this month!)
