I just wanted to give my dearest readers that many stores around the country are having events to celebrate the Fafi launch.  Some of these include unveilings, which are amazing opportunities to see Fafi before it’s even launched officially!  It is best to call up your local store/counter and ask if they have anything going on.  With that said, I will be attending the unveiling event for Fafi on February 10th at MAC Cosmetics at Valley Fair in San Jose, CA. If you’re in the area and would like to come, and call (408) 244-6533 to RSVP!  I’m scheduled to attend at 5:30pm, but please let me know if you can make it and when you will, because I’m sure I can find a reason to stick around longer!

(And also, this means you can fully expect swatches and a review February 10th/11th!)

A little late, but oh well…  I passed on most of the items from A Mei, because the palettes contained permanent/repromoted colors, as were the lipsticks (both are permanent), so there’s no need to rush out and get them.  I got both lipglasses since I’m a sucker for glosses!  She’s A Star is a pretty straight gold gloss with lots of shimmer and shine.  Fun to wear alone as an ultra glossy coat or to lighten any too-bold-to-wear-right-now lipstick.  Love Rules is a brighter, deeper pink, but not quite hot fuchsia pink.  The shimmer/reflects in Love Rules is pink with a touch of opalescence.  I wouldn’t say either of these are must-haves, but they are cute!
