It originally released as a Nordstrom Exclusive but later became available at MAC stores and counters.
I really liked it which is saying something because I’m of the mentality that MAC excels at color but when it comes to the basics, like mascara, well, they stink!
Let’s take a look at the latest release of this mascara entitled MAC Opulash Optimum Black Mascara.
Well my idea of Hollywood glitz and glam for the new MAC Cine-matics Collection has gone out the window.
MAC Cine-matics Collection is the traditional MAC Nordstrom Exclusive Collection that will be released in July. The collection is sold exclusively at Nordstrom locations and I couldn’t help but think, “Gee, those who don’t have a Nordstrom store will be disappointed they have to order online…” but after seeing the collection I thought, “Gee, nothing here to be too disappointed about…”
The collection isn’t my personal bag and I sincerely believe MAC fans will feel an ickle disappointed as well. First off it seems like an economized collection as it lacks lipsticks, lipglasses, blushes, powders, etc…..it does include a range of duo shadows, lipstick bags, lip brush bags, and makeup lesson sets.
However, anyone who has been privy to MAC Nordstrom Exclusive Collections in the past will definitely feel like something is missing here. It’s been downsized in a major way…!
Take a look and tell me what you think.Read More...

The new Korres Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Eye Primer allows for prepping under and over eyes a la Benefit Stay Don’t Stray. I kinda love the idea of a multitasking primer that works at keeping both my eyeshadow and my concealer in place!
The formula is also rich in antioxidants Quercetin and oak extract, as well as sunflower extract and vitamin E, which helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin’s elasticity and texture. Preps, primes, plus anti-aging abilities? Oh yay!
