MAC It’s a Strike arrives for Fall 2016 with a selection of colorful lipsticks, Creemsheen Glass, eyeshadow shades and more inspired by bowling!? I think the point is your makeup is so on point you’ll knock people down, like pins at a bowling alley?

I dunno, I’m totally grasping at straws here people!

I do know that the MAC Pearlmatte Face Powder in Trophy is totally Al Bundy Approved!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    I think I can pass on all of these. I think they’re running out of ideas for new LE collections all.the.time.

    I thought the theme of this collection was odd when I first heard about it but that Pearlmatte powder must be mine. It is too cute to pass up!

    • Isabella Muse

      Likewise! I think they are kind of going for strike out/knock out makeup!? But it still seems utterly random and odd. I’m still trying not to laugh over Babes and Balls lol!

    I thought for sure that your next MAC post would be about the Star Trek collection! Call me confused!
