10 MAC Lip Glosses You Should Own

mac+lipglass

Somehow, someway MAC Lipgloss wiggled it’s way into my heart. My first try with MAC gloss was a nightmare and I ended up hating it for ever after because of the terribly sticky, tacky formula. As you know I’ve since made peace with the formula and even give it props for being tacky enough to stay in place for hours at a time.

I’m now the pride owner of one too many MAC lip glosses. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Who knows but the fact remains I can’t get enough of them and I look forward to new shades with each release.


Check out my list below fro 10 MAC Lip Gloss shades I think you should own or at least consider adding to your collection!



MAC glosses come and go through my life as collections release. The shades you see above are ones that stick out in my mind and I consider favorites! The Muse thinks you should think about adding one or two of these colors to your collection, loves ‘em!

Anyone own any of these shades?

What are some MAC gloss shades that stick out in your mind?

I really dig Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliners but I must admit that I’m a bigger fan of MAC Technakohl. It seems to last all day and never smears or wears off. The only thing I hate about it is the fact that once the sharp tip wears down it kinda turns into a useless liner for using anywhere else but my waterline. Regardless, I still adore it.

Now you fill in the beauty blank with your fav eyeliner that lasts all day!

Yay or Nay: MAC Eye Shadows

summer yayornay

This is always an interesting topic to Muse about. MAC Eye Shadow that is. Are MAC Eye Shadows a Yay or a Nay for you?


Click ahead to find out if I’m yayin’ or nayin’!

I always find it interesting when people tell me they can do without MAC shadow. I happen to fall into the Yay crowd when speaking of MAC and eye shadow. I like the price, I like the variety, and I like the color payoff. Not alot to hate here. Call me a MAC groupie but if anything MAC does shadow right. I know occasionally it can get a tad repetitious after collecting a while and all the colors begin to run into each other after a while but I can honestly say I’m always delighted when I find an interesting, unique shade and I do think many shades are unique and different.


Yay it is for me!

Beauty Babble: Weathering Makeup

beauty+babble

Wanna Beauty Babble with me? During our last babble we were hit with survival beauty and all the essentials we’d need in dire situations.

How To Play:
The Beauty Babble section basically is a scenario of “possibilities” with questions and answers about what you’d do in situations where cosmetics would be needed!

Today’s babble is about various weather conditions and makeup items or skincare you’d need in such situations!

Jump ahead to read my babblings and submit your own if you’re wanting to play!

You head to work on Monday expecting it to be like any other day of the week when your boss pulls you aside with some incredible news. He relates to you that he wants to send you to London for the entire Summer to work at the UK branch. You’re so excited you can’t believe your good luck! As soon as you leave his office you dial up your best friend who lives in England to share the details. Your best friend informs you that it would be a terrible time to come to London right now because the predicted weather for the next three months is gloomy, cloudy weather and rain! You’re kinda feel badly after you hear this especially since you’re having perfect Summer weather right at home. You keep your chin up and decided you’ll need a few makeup essentials to bring Summer with you to cold, dreary London. What will they be (choose five)?

I’d choose a fun Summer scent, a great bronzer, a pretty shade of blush, a shimmery, Summery palette for my eyes, and a good primer to keep my makeup from falling off my face in the rain!

My picks:

Fragrance: Harajuku Lovers G
Warm, coconut will help me think Summer during those rainy days!

Bronzer:
Urban Decay Baked Bronze in Glided
As if you haven’t heard enough how much I love this bronzer! Shimmery cheeks with hint of gold and peach will bring a little sun to my cloudy day in London!

Blush:
MAC Eversun Blush
My ideal blush this Summer and plenty peachy to bring a little color into my world on dreary days!

Eyeshadow Palette:
Kate Von D Gypsy Eyeshadow Palette
A slew of Summery greens to spring up my look in the rain!

Primer:
Korres Face Primer
Love this stuff! Keeps my makeup so fresh! Hopefully it’ll help keep it waterproof too!

Your best friend asks you to dinner on Friday night and explains she has amazing news to tell you! You meet up with her and as you’re ordering dinner she springs on you she’s getting married to an Arabian Sheikh. With your mouth hanging open you gasp in shock! After getting over your shock you gush how excited you are for her. After the waiter leaves with your order you proceed to ask her for all the details. She explains that the wedding will take place in the Sahara Desert. Trying not to gasp in shock you begin plotting skincare items you’re going to need to keep your face properly moist. Pick three items to keep your skin in order!

My picks:

Lush Ocean Salt
Most people don’t use Ocean Salt on their face because they feel it’s too harsh but I happen to love it! It’s ideal for those crazy desert days when my skin begins to flake up!

Mandom Perfect Assist 24 Double Moist Cream
This will keep my skin moist and dewy while the sun is beating down on my head!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun Block
Gotta have high SPF for those sunny days in the desert! 85+ on this one! w00t!

Ok! Now it’s your turn. The desert and dreary, cold rain for three months! Babble it peeps and tell me what you’d need to survive these nasty weather conditions.
