Dame Edna

I feel i have been on a rollercoaster in terms of desire for the Dame Edna collection from MAC. I like it one day... love it the next.... then feel "meh" about it another day.... lol
The packaging is super cute, but i don't believe in purching products for their packaging -- you should actually like the product as well. I originally wanted to get one lipstick, one palette and one highlight powder. I'm not sure i want a palette anymore, as the colours really don't appeal to me. Neither do the lipsticks.... so i think i'll just pick up a highlight powder....

it's currently available online and will be available in stores on friday (Dec. 26) BOXING DAY!!!

25% off MAC holiday collection!!!!!

OMG... i'm gonna be honest... the price tag on the holiday collection deterred me from purchasing any this year.. even tho i really really wanted the palettes... the last time mac had a sale like this was over the summer when it offered 25% off everything in store for 2 days... who would've thought it would happen again so soon???? I guess the bad economy has affected MAC as well...

the email i received:

O Sweet Celebration! Save on the Season!M·A·C is gifting YOU with 25% OFF our current Holiday Kits Collection!*It's our way of saying 'thank you' for making the year glamorous.Shop any M·A·C retail store, department store location,or simply visit! Go!

Pur Minerals

Attention to all Canadians:

Pur Minerals is now exclusively available at Shoppers Drugmarts.
I have personally never tried their products but I've always wanted to. They are a little pricey so i never took the plunge to order off of their website. But now I can finally give them a try!!! I LOVE Bare Escentuals... but it's WAY too expensive... i LOVE Everyday Minerals but it makes me break out =( So i hope Pur Minerals can be the perfect mineral foundaton for me so i can stop searching =)

Shoppers is currently offering their starter kit which includes:

The Chisel Brush (retails $22USD)
Universal Marble Powder (retails $13.50USD)
Mineral Glow (retails $13.50USD)
4-in-1 Mineral Make-up with SPF15 (retails $16.50)

total $65.5USD (and that's BEFORE SHIPPING and converting to Canadian dollars!!!!)

so you get $65USD+ worth of products for only $38 CAD =)

MAC Haulage

Hey Everyone!!!

I have written 2 exams so far (both went extremely well!!!) and have one more left on monday! YAY!

So for those of you who aren't aware, there is an Estee Lauder/MAC warehouse sale that is going on this weekend (fri-sun), which is by invitation only. I was fortunate enough to have been invited to go -- and i did some damage. It wasn't as bad as last time, nor as bad as my friend whom I went with -- she did all her christmas shopping there!!
It was a GREAT sale -- I wouldnt say it was better than last time, but there were some surprises. For example, I was extremely surprised to have found the dazzlelash mascara there (which i had planned to pick up anyway) that was only launched a few weeks ago. I was also surprised to find the "shadowy lady" palette there (which was supposed to be sold out online from the Cult of Cherry collection) -- it was only $15 and yes... i picked one up =) The charged water was 2 for $12 (retails $23CAD each)... what else... there was the $3 bin... hmm.. oh brush sets for $20-$25... OOHHH and that big body brush that was limited edition over the summer.. looks like Urban Decay's buddha brush... damnit.. i forget what the number is... but yeah i remember it being $70 at the mac store... and here it was only $20... i was tempted but decided i don't need it for anything.... anyway... lets just post some pictures shall we?

Studio Sculpt

I'm really intrigued by this collecton that will be released in February 2009. It consists of gel foundations and concealers. I imagine it to glide on super smooth (and hopefully does not fade) with an irresistable finish.

Hello Kitty/Kitty Kouture

OMG ladies... i can't tell you enough how excited i am about the hellokitty/MAC collection that is coming out in a couple of months... new pictures have been released (go check them out at and i can't get over how AWESOME the lipsticks are with hello kitty's face etched on the side!! AAAAAHHHHHH

i think i'm gonna pick up a couple of lipsticks, both eye palettes and a blush... what do you guys plan to get?

Bobbi Brown Make-Up Manual

I just purchased this book today... i'll let you guys know what i think =)

Wednesday, December 03, 2008


These look sooooo awesome!
Although i'm unsure as to why MAC is calling them chromaline and not just the original "fluidline"... are they not the same formula?
Nonetheless... the colours are so vibrant and i'm looking forward to getting the blue, green and purple!! ^_^

Only available at mac pro locations
(Queens st. W for toronto)

In the meantime, you guys should check out Bobbi Brown's new book "Bobbi Brown Make Up Manual: For Everyone from Beginner to Pro" (released yesterday).
