When you’re feeling blue… paint your nails pink!
I’m completely obsessed with the MAC Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator (reviewed – here), and MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ (hauled – here) and since I’ve had such good experiences with the few skincare items that I’ve tried from MAC, I really wanted to branch out and start using their other skincare items, but I was hesitant on purchasing a full-sized item, lest it turn out to be like the Complete Comfort Creme (hauled – here) which was okay but nothing special, and consequentially ended up expiring before I got to use it all up.
Once again, I placed another order (little did I know that it was going to be my final order) on the official MAC website (before this happened) and picked up a few travel-sized products at $10 a pop and got to pick out free deluxe samples. Can you guess which is which from looking at the photo?
Intensely inky, this lightweight, innovative mousse-like formula saturates lashes in a carbon-black pigment that promises the deepest, darkest, richest look imaginable with full long-lasting coverage. Each stroke of the unique double-lush brush creates vixen volume and lift by filling in sparse lashes, magnifying and multiplying magnificently. Long-wearing polymers quickly coat lashes from root to tip, keeping them supple and flexible.
Studio Sculpt Mascara features a unique brush with two specific and patent-pending rows of bristles. Each bristle has a prong to catch and grab eyelashes for better separation, definition, curl and length. The small brush is perfect for reaching every last inner, outer and lower hair, while the creamy and velvety formula conditions lashes without weighing them down. Your lashes are left well-combed and loaded with product. The non-clumping mascara is flake-proof, smudge-proof and lasts all day long.
The Matte Lip Collection consisted of 22 Lipsticks (some new and some repromotes) to be added to the permanent line. Most of them had a matte finish, but a few had a retro matte finish. I purchased some online ($16.00 a pop) and some in-store (KD 8/750 a pop).
Tropic Tonic – full power coral (matte finish) *new*
All Fired Up – bright fucshia matte (retro matte finish)
Whirl – dirty rose (matte finish) *new*
Studded Kiss – dark oxblood red (matte finish)
Matte Royal – deep blue (matte finish) *new*
L-R Tropic Tonic, All Fired Up, Whirl, Studded Kiss, and Matte Royal
(Wo)man’s best friend is barking up the right tree in a well-groomed collection of new canine-inspired hues from M·A·C, featuring luscious, buttery fur tones, gold-spun sculpting powders, and regal berries for lips. From aristocratic to collars-off cool, shades of every pooch are perched to prime your every mood. With Haute Dogs, you’ll be lapping up accolades as best in show!
I died laughing when I first saw this! The Haute Dogs Collection has one of the funniest themes ever from MAC, in my humble opinion. I mean even the name of the collection, Haute Dogs = Hot Dogs Oh, the lulz. This was a pretty big collection, consisting of 5 Mineralize Rich Lipsticks, 4 Mineralize Glass (glosses), 2 Lip Pencils, 4 Fluidlines, 3 Mineralize Eyeshadow Quads, 2 Mineralize Skinfinishes, 4 Sculpting/Shaping Powders, 3 Nail Lacquers, and 4 Makeup Brushes (mix and match of permanent and limited edition items) and most of those had pretty funny names too like Labradorable (lipstick), Dressed to K9s (gloss), and Very Important Poodle (nail polish). Let’s not forget the pièce de résistance, that promo pic (see first photo). I just can’t stop giggling! I’m pretty sure they were trying to recreate the success of Fabulous Felines but while that collection evoked images of grace, elegance, and beauty, Haute Dogs just comes across as goofy yet hilarious!
