MAC Cosmetics – Heatherette for MAC Launch Date Moved Up to March 20th, 2008

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up — Heatherette’s launch is now planned for March 20th, 2008, moved up one week earlier!  (Yay for us, and yet boo for not as much time to save up for it all!)  I had this confirmed by both my local stores, several readers (ahem, Tekoa!), as well as MAC Cosmetics’ LiveChat.

I also wanted to use this space to relay to all of you that both myself and the blog’s readers would love to see your swatches and product shots of the latest collections.  I always do my own swatches and pictures when I can, but I’m just one person and one skintone.  It’s always great to see how colors look on different people!  You can always reach me at [email protected] if you have questions, comments, or want to submit something!

What are you planning to get from Heatherette? (See collection details here!)

MAC Cosmetics – Beauty Powder Blushes Review, Photos, and Swatches

OVERALL, as a blush lover, this collection agrees with me! I think the colors are all vibrant and wearable, though some moreso than others. I really loved Joyous and True Romantic the most, and I will definitely be grabbing these. The texture for all of these is satiny, silky, and just smooth, while the intensity and color pay off is amazing–consistently good across all eight blushes. I’m so happy to be able to have colors that are true-to-pot, because there’s nothing worse than being impressed by the color you see, but disappointed when it goes on! These will not leave you disappointed in the least–and a plus for addicts?  These look exactly like blushes in terms of size, shape, and packaging, which means you can depot if you wish!  In my opinion, the name “beauty powder blushes” attempts to convey that the texture is like beauty powders (silky, soft, velvety) with the characteristics of a blush (more intense color, size, shape).
