I think anybody who was poo-pooing this launch because of all the repromotes/permanent items will at least be tempted to buy these just for the packaging – because it erally does look fun, stylish, and pretty different from past LE packaging. What do you think?

Do you have a “dream list”? I keep a list of MAC products I’d LOVE to buy, but I just haven’t (for assorted reasons – from budgeting/price to forgetfulness to all of the LE launches). When I hit up Nordstrom’s on Friday, my boyfriend tagged along and said he wanted to check out the new iPhone at the Apple store, but he ended up going to MAC and surprising me with several products from my “dream list.”

In my surprise gift:

  • Brush Cleanser
  • Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (in Medium Plus)
  • Mineralize Blush in Merrily
  • Fluidlines in Blue Peep, Rich Ground, and Shade
  • Mineralize Eyeshadow in Polar Opposite
  • Lipglass in Nymphette
  • Lipstick in Fast Thrill
  • Select Tint SPF 15 Foundation (NC35)
  • Brushes: 188, 189, 208, 239 (x2), 266

What’s on your “dream list”?
