MAC Doubles Donations on World AIDS Day


MAC Doubles Donations on World AIDS Day

— M•A•C Cosmetics is going to make twice the impact this year on World AIDS Day. On Saturday, December 1 M•A•C Cosmetics will match all VIVA GLAM product sales on any of the MACcosmetics.com ecommerce sites for a double donation. Typically one VIVA GLAM purchase can buy five meals for a person living with HIV but with M•A•C Cosmetics’ donation match on World AIDS Day a VIVA GLAM lipstick purchased online can buy 10 meals.

“M•A•C’s commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS occurs 365 days a year through the sales of our VIVA GLAM products, 100 percent of the sales price of VIVA GLAM products goes directly to the M•A•C AIDS Fund. This year on World AIDS Day, M•A•C is going to make an even bigger impact by matching all sales of VIVA GLAM products purchased on maccosmetics.com and giving twice the money to the M•A•C AIDS Fund,” says John Demsey, Chairman of the M•A•C AIDS Fund and Group President, The Estée Lauder Companies.

To- date the M•A•C AIDS Fund has raised more than $270 million dollars which have helped men, women and children globally living with HIV/AIDS.

Visit MACCosmetics.com to purchase VIVA GLAM products!  If you’ve been holding off on making a Viva Glam purchase, today’s a perfect time to do so, since MAC will double the donation.

5 Silver Eyeshadows for the Holidays

5 Silver Eyeshadows for the Holidays

My favorite way to wear silver during the holidays is on the lash line, actually. It can add a lot of brightness to a look! I like the line the lower lash line with a rich black eyeliner, then pat on silver eyeshadow on top. I also love silvers with blues–very wintry!

  1. Giorgoi Armani #12 — bright, metallic silver
  2. Estee Lauder Cyber Silver — dark, metallic silver-gray
  3. Buxom Chihuahua — metallic, medium silver
  4. Guerlain Les Aquas — bright, light silver
  5. Inglot #448 — faded silver with a metallic finish

5 Golden Eyeshadows for the Holidays

5 Golden Eyeshadows for the Holidays

I could have easily given you a list of ten, being the gold fiend that I am, but I’ll keep it to the current five that really say holiday to me.  I think gold is a very versatile color.  It pairs well with warmer shades like bronze, rust, and berry, but it can also work with cooler-toned shades like violet, teal, and blue.  And if golds not your cup of tea, I have five of my favorite silvers for holiday coming right up.  Any interest in seeing some holiday blue shades? What other holiday-themed favorites would you like to see?

  1. L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine — metallic yellow gold; not too yellow, not too orange
  2. OCC Triptych — rich, molten, honey gold
  3. Make Up For Ever #11 — dirty antique gold
  4. Inglot #430 — frosted, rich gold
  5. MAC Old Gold — tarnished gold

What’s your favorite holiday gold eyeshadow?

Dior Pasteque (658) Nail Lacquer

Bobbi Brown 24 Karat Shimmer Brick

Bobbi Brown 24 Karat Shimmer Brick ($42.00 for 0.40 oz.) is described as “gold pearlescent shimmer” to give the skin a “lit-from-within glow.” It’s a warm, champagne-shimmered gold that’s just a little muted by beige hues, so it’s not a strong, yellow-toned gold, but it is still very warm. The individual shades are shimmering white, golden beige, slightly darker golden beige, pale gold with orange tint, and warm rose–all five shades have a high frost finish. Tarte Angelic is lighter, more of a white gold. theBalm Solid Gold is similar but lighter, less beige, more gold. Chanel Shimmering Tweed is a darker gold. Bobbi Brown Beach is a little darker–a touch of bronze. I don’t have it, but I’m thinking that Bobbi Brown’s Beige Shimmer Brick might compare well with this, too.
