The pigments, glitters, lashes, and glitter eyeliners do not have ay special Hello Kitty markings on them. Good news for you PRO members–you DO get your discount on these! The woman buying next to me squealed in delight when the cashier told her this! Shh, I didn’t really eavesdrop 😉 Continue reading →
Lucky Tom Eyeshadow Palette (L to R)
MAC Hello Kitty Swatches!
If you followed me on Twitter, you might have read that it happened to me again — they gave me TWO Lucky Tom palettes instead of one Lucky Tom and one Too Dolly palette. They put one on hold for me, so I’ll be picking it up tomorrow. I’m SO SO SO sorry for not having it up tonight, but I hope you’ll sit tight and wait for it tomorrow and forgive me for it all.
*EDIT* So Too Dolly features 3 shadows I already own, so I swatched them. I’m still missing Too Dolly, but now it’s not *as* bad as missing four, right?

Today is GET YOUR KITTY ON! day!
For those lucky enough to attend, MAC stores and counters around the country are having very special unveiling parties this evening. I’ll be heading to my local store’s unveiling party tonight, which starts at 7PM, but you know me — planning to be there early so I can be first in line (OK, my ambition is to be first group in the door, not necessarily *first* in line!). I figure I’ll pop by the mall around 6PM so I can check out Nordie’s and return a few items at Sephora.
According to the lovely MA I spoke to last night, they fully expect to sell out tonight for many items, AND they are showin’ off Kitty Kouture! Based on this poll, you can expect Temptalia to bring you all of the swatches, lip swatches, and product photos you can handle. (But I’ll be passing on the accessories’ line, sorry all, that’s just a lil’ too much for Temptalia’s budget!) Told ya your feedback matters!! I had to call yesterday to make sure they weren’t going to restrict spending (I believe some stores have a $500 limit, LOL), so I can fully lavish in my Hello Kitty Haulin’.
Anyway, the point of this post is for YOU to tell me about what you would haul from Hello Kitty if you had $250 to spend on anything your heart desired from Hello Kitty (including Kitty Kouture, don’t think I don’t know how clever y’all are!). Then, tell me what you’re actually planning to haul, whether your budget is $0 or $1,500! Let’s talk Hello Kitty today and embrace the collaboration between MAC and an icon.
And finally? Tell me what you’re looking to dupe. Ask me if _____ is a dupe for ________. I’ll do my best to figure it out and get you an answer before the collection releases nationally on the 12th.
Are you behind on your Kitty?

Just a little preview of Cremeteam It features Lavender Whip lipstick and Fashion Scoop and Looks Like Skin Cremesheen Glasses. Wish I didn’t have to leave y’all to go to class! I swear, my life would be perfect if I didn’t have school to go to!
** Edited: From what I know, the lipsticks are permanent, while the Cremesheen Glasses are limited. Also, the new foundation and concealer are permanent from what I’ve been told!

Q&A WITH GORDON ESPINET, VICE PRESIDENT GLOBAL MAKEUP ARTISTRY, MAC WORLDWIDE
Q: How does this formula perform differently from other foundations in the MAC line?
Studio Sculpt is incredibly versatile, which makes it unique for many reasons, since its texture is silky and creamy, gliding effortlessly onto skin while providing a natural, velvety finish that’s both modern and natural. It can be blended with moisturizer for a more sheer finish that’s never streaky, or combined with concealer for more full coverage. Create a matte finish by applying powder afterwards, or use Studio Sculpt alone to emphasize skin’s natural sheen and highlights.
Q: Why was this product key for you and your team during fashion week? Has Studio Sculpt been used in any photo shoots?
We have anxiously wanted to offer a foundation that leaves skin looking well-hydrated and completely nourished, and can stand up to being used in various ways. Studio Sculpt can be sheered out or used with powder; it always looks flawless, which is a backstage dream. It is the perfect formula for both film and digital photography, in black and white or color. It’s extremely user-friendly, and the finish remains true and consistent in both color and texture.
Q: Is Studio Sculpt appropriate for HD TV use?
It’s absolutely perfect for High Definition television, because the texture is flawless and it helps skin read as real looking, not overly made up. More importantly, Studio Sculpt’s coverage can be easily manipulated into something very sheer, or layered to offer more coverage where necessary, while remaining even-toned and consistent in texture.
