OVERALL, Ungaro is almost like a relief from the darker, more intense fall and winter launches we have been seeing lately. I suppose if I had to describe it in a word, I would say natural. I picked up both of the CCBs as well as Mineral eyeshadow (which I didn’t think would appeal to me).

What did you haul?

MAC Cosmetics’ Halloween How-to Video! (From MAC!)

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Emanuel Ungaro Collection is now available online! Are you getting anything? We’ve heard some confusing launch dates for in-stores, but perhaps with the website getting it up today, then Thursday will then be the launch day.

Also, here’s a hint: type in “RED” in the search box. You’ll see a lot of the holiday sets, palettes, etc. show up :) Those darling Adoring Carmine lip sets are $34.50, unfortunately for me. Maybe I can convince myself one is enough. (Likely story.) Halloween Face Charts are up, too — WITH photos of the face chart on real models.

Here’s MAC’s Seasonal Peach Nail Lacquer from Cremesheen in a quickie swatch. This polish definitely needs a base laid down and probably three thinner coats would work better than two thicker coats. I find it a little pinker than the promo photo, personally, but there is some peachiness in it, I suppose (perhaps, more visible in person than in the photo).

Who else purchased it? What are your thoughts?
