“You’re invited to attend a sneak preview of M.A.C’s newest collections“… Take my money, take my house, I don’t care. I just want to play with the makeup!!! Hahaha
I am sick in the head when it comes to makeup, let alone M.A.C. makeup, let alone being gifted the makeup in exchange for my open and honest (FAN GIRL!!!) review. I attended the preview with my girl Katie from Yow City Style a few weeks ago and we both got pampered by the awesome staff at the M.A.C. store in Bayshore! I think we both fell head over heels for the coloured mascara. I mean, I used to buy the stuff at dollar stores, and lord knows what was in them! I am relieved there is now a more trusted brand making coloured mascara that is safe for my eyes. Sadly, these bad boys won’t last long, so hurry, unless it’s already too late!
This year MAC Cosmetics collaborated with a number of well-known makeup artists and featured a new line of makeup products under each artist. I was privileged to receive a number of new MAC products to review by James Kaliardos’s and the Kabuki Magic collection.
Finally, a skin care routine tailored for me. I have been using the new Idealia skincare by Vichy line for a week now, and it’s too amazing not to share. Sometimes I feel ridiculous using age defying products, maybe it’s because I am blessed with healthy skin, or maybe because I am in denial of my age (33 isn’t old, is it?). Regardless, I don’t want to use old lady cream just yet. I appreciate that most lines have a “protect skin now, enjoy it later” attitude, but it makes me feel old to think that wrinkles are in my not-so-distant future.
This time of the year calls for the “Dryfecta”. It’s a brutal combination of the cold weather, the dry air from indoor heating and if you’re fortunate enough, post-vacation suntanned skin. That’s what I have right now. I just came back from my trip to Hawaii and I am in dire need of Vichy’s moisture cocoon routine to nurture and hydrate my dry skin back to good vibrant health. With a combination of drinking loads of water (using a fun bottle of course!), blasting a humidifier in every room, and hitting “loop” on my Vichy routine… I think I got this!
