UPDATE: Sadly, they do not ship internationally! I’m so sorry guys icon sad

Hey guys!

I think I was a bit vague yesterday! Sorry about that.

My original post about MAC DressCamp and ordering it have a confused a few folk!

Here’s the info:

MAC Pro in Soho is where you can get this Collection icon smile If you’re outside of New York and within the US call the following number: 212-334-4641 to place your order! The charge per an order for shipping within the US is $7 USD so take advantage maybe and order items and colors you can only get within a MAC Pro Store! Believe me quite a few items and colors are exclusive to Pro Shops and well worth having a look at! Click here to visit the Pro Official Website (Take note of how many pigment colors they have in comparison to what you’d see at your normal counter or regular free standing store! Nice selection right?!).

If you’re in Canada, Europe, Asia, Etc…you can call but I really have no idea if they ship outside the US! I’m headed out the door to work so I’ll call when I get to my office and do an updated post about whether they ship worldwide or not!

They open at 9 AM I believe so call first thing in the AM!

Click here to visit with the beautiful Janice at Specktra Blog for updates on which locations have the collection! Again, the collection is not available in freestanding stores or counters just Pro shops! You can’t call Pro directly either to order you must call a freestanding MAC Pro Store. A list of the very few MAC Pro Stores is available from Specktra.

Good Luck scoring this beautiful and coveted collection!

Do comment and let me know if you get lucky today! I’d like to know all my readers are safe and sound and have the pretty MAC in their possessions hehe!

MAC DressCamp: SOLD OUT! Now what?

Yes, MAC DressCamp is completely sold out online!

MY GOD THE HORROR!

I haven’t seen a collection sell out like in a LONG time! Wow!

The good news is MAC Soho hasn’t yet released the Collection so if you live in New York you can wander over and grab the entire collection by visiting them at:

113 Spring Street
New York, NY 10012

The store is inbetween Von Dutch and American Apparel you can’t miss it!

If you aren’t within the lovely city of New York you can call up the nice folk at MAC Pro and ask them to ship over your goodies and they’ll happily do so for $7 (within the US) for whatever your little heart desires. The package is sent via UPS. This is a good option if you missed the boat ordering online.

The Collection officially releases tomorrow so you can head over or call tomorrow morning! I wouldn’t wait as I imagine it’ll sell out as quickly in store as it did online!

I believe there might be another location in New York that will have the collection! Check Specktra for details as this is an exclusive collection and NOT available at counters or freestanding stores just SELECT Pro Stores!

Happy Shopping!

PS You do NOT need a Pro Card to order from MAC Pro icon wink

MAC Prep & Prime Review

I had to pick up some MAC lipsticks for a swap a few weeks ago and of course being the junkie I am I couldn’t leave the counter without getting at least one item for myself!

What did I end up with? MAC Prep & Prime.

Picture+360

Lately I’ve sorta been on the hunt for a good primer. I don’t normally prime prior to foundation aside from the regular toner and moisturizer regime. But after reading some rave reviews about various primers I decided I should incorporate the step into my makeup routine.

What I read that turned me onto primers:

  • They make your foundation last longer.
  • They minimize the appearance of pores (I don’t have this problem as my pores are really tiny) but hey that didn’t stop me from wanting to buy a primer!
  • They are a good base for your foundation and it applies easier and smoother when a primer is used.

All this sounded like I seriously needed to start using a primer. The promise of long wearing foundation and foundation that applied easier and smoother sounded fantastic!

Who else but MAC would have a great primer right?

Well…

Not really.

I’ve been using Prep & Prime for about two weeks now and I seriously haven’t seen much of a difference in my foundation wear and tear. My foundation fails to last through the day sadly and I have to touch up at least twice with powder or a highlighting pen since I begin to look dull around the 4th hour or so of wear. Sadly, MAC Prep & Prime failed the test of making my foundation last longer.

Did my foundation go on smoother?

No. Not really.

It felt about the same going on after using Prep & Prime. I’m not sure what I was expecting from it but I thought maybe it would give my face a sort of wet moisturizing feel that would allow my foundation to glide on flawlessly. This it did not do.

The texture is pretty thick and if you look close enough it has tiny particles that pick up and reflect the light but that trick doesn’t apply when it’s on. At least for me it didn’t. Someone had mentioned on MUA that one pump will do it. Well no. I need at least two pumps to do my entire face.

It glides on rather smooth and soft in contrast with it’s thick texture. It feels wonderful really however I don’t feel like it’s moisturizing my face but then again that’s not really what it’s supposed to do anyway.

All in all it just doesn’t appear to work for me. It doesn’t make my foundation last longer and it doesn’t do a brilliant job of prepping my skin for foundation so basically it’s $22 USD of thick cream that doesn’t do much of anything.

Sadly, as much as I love MAC, this one gets a big thumb down!

Have you used it? Love it? Hate it?

Any recs for a good primer?
