The Aftermath: MAC to the Beach

So I just got home from the unveiling party for MAC to the Beach and man oh man am I tired. Have you ever tried fighting 50 plus women to swatch an eyeshadow?

Let's make a Pros/Cons List shall we?

  • Hottie models who made me blush like a lil school girl...or as my friend said, "They look like human Ken dolls!"
  • Threw back a few yummy cocktails
  • I think I saw some models with trays of food but really who can eat when the person holding the tray has flawless abs staring at u in the face?
  • Got to pick up some of the stuff id been feenin for :)
  • Made some cool friends in line ..what was her name again?
  • SOLD OUT MARINE LIFE?!! How is that possible when it's not even released yet?? I was mad as a mo'fo
  • Bumpin elbows with 100 crazy MAC fanatics

So I ended up getting 2 eyeshadows, a new blush, and a new lipstick. I also pre-ordered the Marine Life Highlighting powder that I can pick up on the 27th. I know Im gonna haul some more bronzers later but for now I am content :)


PS thanks to my lovely friends for supporting my addiction and coming with me.

Happy Reading <3

MAC & Disney Venomous Villains Collection

So after years of rumors MAC has finally confirmed that MAC & Disney will be teaming up for a Venomous Villains Collection due to hit store this September.

The collection will feature 4 fabulously fierce villains. Which 4 will they be though?

Ursula? Cruella? The Queen from Snow White?

I personally love Ursula. What's your favorite villain?

NYX eyelashes GALORE

A few weeks ago I jumped when I heard that NYX Cosmetics was having their big Bundle of Joy sale. I told everyone about this great deal. I ended up only getting one bundle cuz Ive been trying to show some self restraint (yea right!). Here's what I scored.

Just realized my pic kinda sucks, oh well you get the gist of it right?

I can't wait to try these bad boys out.

Ok time to unwind and decide what look to do for tomorrow's MAC to the Beach unveiling party

MAC to the Beach Collection

My beloved MAC is coming out with their new MAC to the Beach collection on May 27th BUT I was lucky enough to score an invite to the unveiling launch party tomorrow night! I am beyond excited. Did someone say MAC make up and cocktails? I have already made my wish list and of course it is a bit out of my budget but have you seen what the collection has? Who can resist special packaging that promises to give you that faux beach bunny tan? I plan on taking tons of pics to share and I also want to upload my first youtube video manana. Maybe I'll get one view? maybe 2? I'm sure I can convince my mom and best friend to be avid readers.
