Musings of the Day: MAC Site

musigns

I think this is a rather awesome Musing of the day so tell me whatcha think!

Do you love or leave the new MAC site?

Tell me all about and click below for my take!

Ok, so I’ve been thinking about this really, really hard (without busting a blood vessel I promise) and I remember how much I liked and enjoyed playing around with the MAC site when it was first updated. I mean it’s kinda ingenious being able to search by color and having the color options in every single available product etc….

But…well…the novelty wore off and I really, really, really, really miss the old design. For example, if I’m logging on just to have a quick look at a new collection it’s so difficult to navigate because the collection pages go by so quickly…or maybe I’m not clicking fast enough?

On top of that the black background drowns out the actual photos of the products. Plus one click brings another sliding frame and after that another frame appears…and I begin to feel like a n00b on the Internetz for the first time. What the hell?

I dunno it’s just too many bells and whistles and I just loved the simplicity of the old site.

Please MAC bring it back?

What do you think?

Absolutely adore the new site?

Want the old site back?

Want a new site but a little more organized and a little less fanfare?

How would you improve it?

Product Musings: MAC Eyeshadow Firespot


untitled

The Muse thinks we should all sign a petition and ask MAC to freaking bring back Firespot! Too many makeup junkies have not experienced the beauty and joys of Firespot, blasphemy!

The Muse has an orange eyeshadow here and there. She also owns a few peaches, a few bronzes, and a coral or two, and other wonderful shades that fall into the “orange” category. But she’s never quite run across such a stunning, pigmented shade of pure orange flame like MAC Firespot.

Upon it’s release with the MAC Moonbathe Collection it sold out uber quickly. I was lucky to get one at the time as I was a week to late hauling Moonbathe as I recall it.

MAC+Firespot3

It’s possibly the most prettiest shade I’ve come across and quite reminds me of a flame of a fire. It’s extremely pigmented and works amazingly well with golds to create a gorgeous Summery eye look!

Loves it!

Can we please has it back now MAC?

How about you?

Have it?

Love it?

MAC Hello Kitty Video

For your trippy pleasure, MAC Hello Kitty Collection video:


Skip ahead to hear my thoughts on it!

I swear I wish I had a tab of acid I could slap back because that would seriously give me the full on experience of watching the MAC Hello Kitty video.

For serious.

It’s trippy enough mind you but acid would really give it a certain edge dontcha think? Didn’t those dudes in the big Hello Kitty heads remind you of the Pyramid Heads from Silent Hill? Shudder! For a second there I was thinking things were going to get sexual as they looked ready to rip that blond chick’s clothes off. Omg when did Hello Kitty become so scary?

hello+kitty

That’s some seriously trippy stuff even without the acid.

What do you think?

Loves it?

Leaves it?

Scares me Muse!!!!!
