Although the Muse wasn’t the biggest supporter or fan of the MAC Hello Kitty Collection she does so admit that one of thee best items released with the collection were the awesome shades of MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner released with the color story!

Her fav of the two shades released? Jump ahead to find out!

Since I purchased MAC Tinted Lip Condition in Popster it hasn’t seen the outside of my purse. I carry it everywhere! It’s the perfect combo of pink, peach, and coral. Such a warm lovely shade that brightens up any of my looks and is perfect for on the go touch ups!

According to the Muse’s mate over at Krasey Beautiful this year’s MAC Nordstrom Exclusive Collection will be called Graphic Garden!

Oooo! Ahhh! Awww! Whoa! Yay! Sounds good to me.

They will be releasing the standard goodies like eyeshadow palettes, makeup bags, brushes, etc….but what really caught my interested was the MAC Look Book which will include mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, etc…in a little box! Cool! Likey!

I can’t wait to see MAC Graphic Garden for myself!

Sound exciting to you?

Product Musings: MAC Lipstick in Kiss Manish

mac+lipstick

The Muse is super excited about MAC’s upcoming Summer Collections. All the colors are positively dreamy! Loving all that gold and bronze, so very Muse-like!

As I salivated over MAC Summer I couldn’t help but think what was already in my beauty arsenal that I could combo up with the collections when they released and the first thing to entire my mind was MAC Lipstick in Kiss Manish!

Loves it!

Released with the special, limited edition Manish Arora for MAC this incredible lipstick shade won my heart over fairly quickly. It’s made it’s way onto my Year End Favorite List for 2008 and has been worn too many times to count, that’s saying something as the Muse isn’t loyal to any one lipstick.

The shade quite reminds me of my other favorite shade from MAC, Pink Grapefruit Lipglass. It’s such an incredibly deep shade of coral with a loud orange base but just enough punch to give it a dark peach sheen on my lips. Absolutely stunning! Truly MAC broke the mold when they made this particularly lippie!

Have you tried it?

Hauled it for yourself?

Love it as much as the Muse?

Reader’s Request: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Refined Swatches

Sorry I really should have posted these with my original haul post from MAC SugarSweet. As requested from a few readers here are some swatches from MAC Minralize Skinfinish in Refined.

MAC+Mineralize+Skinfinish+Refined+Swatches+4

I was visiting on Cozy a few days ago and many of the girl’s were impressed with how pigmented Refined was. Just a note I thought it applied best and deepest when used with a kabuki brush. It works a treat as a blush so long as you buff the color into cheeks with a kabuki. With any other brush it acts more as a highlighter! Just thought I should add that if you were curious.

MAC SugarSweet Collection: Dear Cupcake and Red Velvet

MAC+SugarSweet

I was working from home Friday since I purchased a TV and was waiting on it to be delivered so I didn’t really put much effort into my FOTD. I ended up fiddling around a bit with MAC Eyeshadow in Dear Cupcake and MAC Shadestick in Red Velvet for my look below. I really like how well these work together to create a nice popping pink look! I liked the look so much I didn’t bother removing it for when I went out later that night as it wore amazingly well all evening without creasing or fading up. Great shade combo.

Check below for the look I created using both!

I used a quickie swipe of MAC Shadestick in Red Velvet and MAC Eyeshadow in Dear Cupcake on top. The Shadestick allowed the eyeshadow to last ll day and also made it a more intense color of pink! Quite nice. I used a simple shimmering white on my highbrow to highlight the whole look. It’s not really anything special as I rushed a fair bit while doing it but I must say Dear Cupcake goes so very well when combo’ed with Red Velvet!
