How has your weekend been going? Mine has been filled with delicious food. There’s a local Indian restaurant (which is actually the only Indian restaurant for 20-30 miles) that has the most amazing butter chicken. We have a relatively new tradition of going to this Mediterranean restaurant for brunch on Sundays (the only day they have it)–they have these vegetable-loaded omelets with goat cheese that’s very local/sustainable and uses in-season veggies. The only downside is that we have to finish cleaning the house before we can head out for brunch!
MAC Fashion Sets – reviews, photos, swatches are coming. I’ve taken 2500 photos, but I still have 7 more sets to photograph. So there’s still a lot of work left before you’ll see any reviews (haven’t gone through, edited, written, etc. anything other than this preview photo!). With luck, I’ll be able to get one or two sets reviewed today with the rest to follow tomorrow and the next day. Thanks for your patience — there are a whopping 48 products in this launch!
Of the shades released in the Rose Gold collection, Beige Gold is the least pigmented–it’s more like a heavily-dosed shimmer finish with less underlying color. You get semi-sheer to semi-opaque color, and there’s an overall lightening of the natural lip color with plenty of shimmer. This shade only hung on for two and a half hours, which is rather short, though not entirely unexpected, given its light coloring. Because of the higher shimmer content, it didn’t glide on easily as the other shades, which tend to be creamier. Unfortunately, this shade doesn’t deliver on the Rich Lip Color promises of a long-wearing, moisturizing, and full color formula.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.
