C-Shock: A New MAC Color Story

I’m skipping my way to Nordies after work to pick up MAC’s new color story, C-Shock!

I’m pretty excited about this one girls (and guys)! The shadows are extra bold and outrageous, just the way I like ‘em, because after all I’m a bold and an outrageous girl (So not true but it does sound exciting when I type that doesn’t it? Don’t kill the mood let me go on believing that for the next 2 minutes of this post!)! You can go ahead and add exciting in there as well…I’m bold, outrageous, and exciting…oh wait..we were discussing MAC weren’t we?

Truly the one that I am properly chuffed about would be Big T!

It looks like such a delightful oceany/aquay/tealy/bluey yummie color!

Anyway………updates and lovely pictures to follow shortly! Can’t wait to get my hands on these! But first I have to get through the long work day…sympathetic sighs are welcome!

A Twisted Discussion

I previously discussed MAC’s new color story, Novel Twist in a prior blog! The pictures I had posted in that blog aren’t nearly as good as the ones that have popped up on Nordie’s website yesterday! I’ll be sharing those with you shortly!

I got invited to preorder Novel Twist on July 12 basically this means I’m special as hell and you aren’t (No I’m not but it sounded great typing it)!

Novel Twist is officially released on July 20th but since I’m special, see above for details, I get to order it and pick it up on July 12! Wahoo!

The color story is quite huge and I want everything but I narrowed it down and decided I’d just buy…..everything….! I hear screaming…..from my purse…….oh it’s just my credit card! Have no FEAR! I’ve accumulated some Nordies Notes over the last few months which will cover some of my purchases icon wink

Geez, where was I before being so rudely interupted? Oh yes. I’m decided that I shouldn’t buy everything. I should limit myself to buying most of the color collection…just some…alot of it…but not all of it…most of it….a majority of it…..

If this wasn’t enough of a problem, Nordstrom though it was a damn brilliant idea to preview two more color stories during this promote of Novel Twist. This means that I’ll be holding a can on the street corner next month with the words “Will Work For Make-Up” across it! Sigh! I hate you MAC!

I’m not entirely sure if they’ll let us buy from any of the two new color stories they are previewing. I do know they’ll let us touch these, smell them, feel them, paw at them, caress them, possibly make love to them, drool on them, and weep! I’m going to try to do all of the above with as much class and glam as I can but please don’t hate me too much if I end up looking like a zombie with drool dripping from my mouth when presented with a ton of pigments and mineralized eyeshadows! Truly you’d feel the same!

Hopefully Nordies puts all of us out of our agony and doesn’t make us wait till July 19th to purchase these!

So…a recap about this preview!

We will indeed have Novel Twist at this launch! You’ve read about it previously and seen the photos in my blog and now for the close ups!

Without further delay I present to you Novel Twist, A Nordstrom Exclusive MAC Color Collection (Limited Edition for the junkies like me!):

Now in regards to the preview of the other two color stories! That would be Rushmetal and Flashtronic. Both of which are being release on the same date which would be July 19th!

Flashtronic and Rushmetal Color Stories

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 icon sad 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!

An Ode to Parrot

in MAC

An ode to that legendary MAC color that is sadly gone from our graces!

Parrot how I adore thee and will miss you when I’ve used you all up! Moonflower tries to be like you but it doesn’t fill my heart the way you do!

When oh When will they repromote you? I have dreams of stocking up when you regrace us with your presence and beauty!

On the bright side I could always sell a kidney to afford a new pot of parrot which ranges from $60-80 on E-bay!

Well…maybe not!

A Little of This, A Little of That!

Hi there icon wink

I did a bit o’ video blogging when I popped in last night (or should I say this morning)!

It was somewhat rushed and the pics came out crummy and such but I’m gonna slap it up here so you guys can get a feel for the new color stories!

I picked up Novel Twist (Novel Twist’s video will be added later on today, tonight, or tomorrow!), Flashtronic, and Rushmetalyesterday! Wahoooooo!

I got a nice little haul of bits and bobs that I’d thought I’d share with you guys in my second video blog!

Enjoy!

These are the other two:

I am now coming down with that terrible diseased entitled “Must Collect Them All!”….Oh Lord! Somene save my soul!
