Mai, Myself, and a buncha of my friends are going to the Novel Twist Party at Nordstrom’s Thursday Night!
From what I understand not only will we be able to purchase Novel Twist but we can also purchase both Flashtronic and Rushmetal!
Squeal! Christmas in July girls!
I’m not entirely sure which I am more in love with at this point Flashtronic or Rushmetal! I’m very excited about the Mineralize Skinfinishs as these always end up becoming highly sought after collectible pieces!
I know many people have fallen out of love with MAC because of the old rerun But I really do think they have quite outdone themselves with these newest stories and we are in for quite a treat!
I know I’m eager to get my grubby hands on them!

Little bit of a review on MAC’s new Paint Pots plus an FOTD! Yay!
Sooooooooooooooooooooo I ended up purchasing one of the Paint Pots yesterday! This is just an early release from Nordies basically! The rest of the colors will be popping up sometime in August from MAC!
I only got one as a I said and that color was Delft which is an ocean green teal color!
Not a big fan of cream shadows but I was curious so I went ahead and grabbed one!
Mmmm…..I imagine people will love these…I don’t.
The texture is a bit hard and I just couldn’t work well with it. For one thing I really had to pull at my eye area to apply it which isn’t such a great idea when your 30th Birthday is in a few short months!
I applied a rather medium size amount to my finger for application and it went on somewhat sheer. I guess you seriously have to work your finger in and layer it on thick to acheive the desired look!
I do give it props for adhering pigment well! I applied Teal pigment on top of it and it really stuck to the paint like glue which is slightly impressive and may make me consider purchasing one or two more for that reason alone!
Overall I guess they are alright. They aren’t great or even good in my book but I’m sure some people will adore these as they have been eagerly anticipated a long time coming!
The good news is I used Quick Frost on my highbrow and it deserves a back-up! It’s a fantastic pigment! It’s much like Frost with Gold Shimmer to it plus it’s not nearly as grainy! Easy, 1-2-3, application with it!
Face of the Day for your viewing pleasure! Kinda looks like a similiar look I’ve done before but I guess I was a bit rushed this morning and didn’t take much time to do it and thus it came out rubbish!
What I Used: MAC Pigment in Teal MAC Pigment in Deep Blue Green MAC Paint Pot in Delft MJ Mascara MAC Technakohl in Black MAC Pigment in Quickfrost Bnever Loose White Shimmering Powder
Sexier on the lips than balm. Silkier than gloss. More protective than naked. A lipcolour that combines soft shine, easy glide, and double-smooth satin finish with an everyday sun protective formula. To treat your lips…Love ‘em tender.
That blurb is taken directly from the MAC website and it’s the biggest crock of shit ever! Don’t you love when I’m being right properly unladylike with my colorful vocabulary? I know you adore it!
I gotta say I’m not big on the lip gelees, the lipglasses, and the glosses in general from MAC. I’m a MAC whore but I’ll go right ahead and diss the glosses from here to Central America. They don’t rock my world. Sticky, gooey, and just gross come to mind. Do I use them? Yea. Do I buy them? Yea. Why? I dunno, I’m sick, we established that already.
I do give a hearty thumbs up to MAC’s plushglass but that’s another story for another day as I say!
Now when I first heard about Tendertones I was excited (when don’t I get excited at the prospect of new gloss?)!
I think I idolized Tendertones to the status of Lancome’s Juicy Gelee Gloss! I was thinking smooth, glossy, wonderfully sheer color, moisturizing, porn star lips! (Did I just say porn stay? I guess I did. Deal with it!)
Nope. None of those things apply to this gloss. I should have known. I ended up purchasing 4 of the colors and although, they are happily making friends with the rest of the glosses in my collection, they are in no way a favorite of mine.
They are sheer. Very sheer. I expected some color. I was thinking I could apply without lipstain under it. Not happening. I need stain under the gloss otherwise I get plain fleshy colored lips with some sticky gloss slapped on. It’s sticky. Again, I should have known. It doesn’t surprise me. MAC always has a special knack for putting out the thickest, stickiest glosses around. I feel like my lips are glued shut wearing this stuff.
They smell yummie and they taste equally lovely but that’s about the only thing going for them! The pot is huge for the price another plus. To be honest while I was browsing them I was somewhat in awe and was almost to the point of purchasing the entire lot, because, again, I’m sick like that. But I’m glad I ended up with 4 colors and didn’t get too crazy. To be honest if you’re considering purchasing any, my strongest suggestion is just go with one. They are so sheer that they all go on as the same color. So really, you may well be blinded with the array of colors on display but it doesn’t matter which you choose, all go on the same clear way! Boring Boring Boring!
Low rating for me. Not interested at all. They’ll end up in the bottom of my traincase and one day I’ll pull them out and sell them on E-bay or swap them away on make-up alley.
