MAC Cosmetics Dame Edna
Available December 26th, 2008

“Hello possums!” Dame Edna Everage is in the house! With her zesty zingers, over-the-top appearance – lilac hair (which she claims is natural), bedazzled specs, fanciful frocks – there’s nothing like a Dame! The alter ego of brilliantly wicked Aussie comedian, Barrie Humphries, and the resident muse for our post-holiday make up collection, Dame Edna thinks of herself as “probably the most popular and gifted woman in the world today: housewife, investigative journalist, social anthropologist, talk-show host, swami, children’s book illustrator, spin doctor, megastar and icon.” With packaging as mirthful and minx-like as the Legend herself, the Dame Collection of heavy-on-the-lilac Lipstick/Lipglass, Eye Shadow, Highlight Powder and Nail Lacquers is in a class by itself!

When Bath & Body Works starts stocking their holiday gift sets, I know it’s time to work on my Christmas wish list, and start prodding others to give me some ideas of what they’d like to receive this season. I’m one of those early bird shoppers–I do not do December at the mall. The only reason you will see my butt at the mall after Thanksgiving (Black Friday is my official stop-going-to-the-mall-marker) is to swatch and review a MAC launch. But I go first thing in the AM, so I miss the crowds (especially since it’s usually a weekday!). SO, I can appreciate knowing and/or being able to purchase products available mid-October. Let me catch you up on all that is holiday in the beauty realm!

What collections caught your eye? Which have you bought from? Which are you saving up for?

I love Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, and Urban Decay’s so far–those are really theo nly ones I’ve played with. I might venture into Guerlain and NARS’ launches later on.
