MAC Rose Is a Rose Quadicon is FINALLY available at Nordstrom!

You can purchase online or you can purchase online and pick-up in-store (to save on shipping). Will you be scoring one for yourself, or will you be skipping this time around? The official release date is slated for May 20th to coincide with Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly sale, so I don’t know if the online site will ship now or if stores will let you pick it up now. YMMV.

The quad contains:

  • Solar White Golden white (Frost) (Repromote)
  • Contrast Dark purple/blue (Velvet) (Permanent)
  • Seeds of Love frosted peach (Frost)
  • Petal Worship Light, blue-based pink (Frost)

P.S. – Dior 5-Colour Designer Eye Paletteicon are also now available on Nordstrom, plus $5 shipping for beauty purchases of $50 or more!

Purple Rite Lipstick

MAC Style Warrior Lip Swatches! :)

Here’s a little run down about how they apply/opacity on the shades first…

  • Purple Rite is semi-sheer, provides decent color to lips. Frosty finish.
  • Sunsational is a sheer, shimmery peachy-gold. It’s not designed to give you a lot of color.
  • Tribalist is a creamy, opaque color. Very deep and better to apply via a lip brush (I did not, as I do these as fast as humanly possible).
  • Brave New Bronze is a creamy, opaque color. Will probably lean peach or pink, depending on your skin tones, but it is more peach than pink.
  • Liberated is sheer, gold shimmer.
  • Fierce & Fabulous is semi-sheer, providing lips with noticeable color.
  • Gold Rebel is sheer, peachy-gold shimmer. Like Liberated, but more peach/orange.
  • Style Warrior is a semi-sheer, providing lips with noticeable color/darkening. Try it over Tribalist or any red lipstick to see a cool effect. Really — it’s more wearable than you think.

Now, onto the lip swatches! Continue reading →
