MAC Cosmetics’ Dame Edna Collection is now available to order online! For those of you who have as little desire as me to get thee to the mall on the 26th (seriously, are you nuts?), order ahead ;) If you qualify for free shipping, you can upgrade to 2-day for $5 or so (not a bad deal!)–you’ll probably end up getting it the 26th, too! I already placed an order with Los Angeles PRO, and I’m really, really hoping my order arrives today. C’mon UPS!

SO, what are you getting? What are you absolutely NOT getting? Skipping, getting it all? Share your thoughts and comments on this launch in this post!

P.S. – Anyone lusting after Lash & Dash?  Share those thoughts here, too!

Happy Tuesday everyone! :) Hopefully those of you who celebrate the holidays have finished your shopping, but if you haven’t–much luck and patience wished your way for all your last minute shopping. I’m totally going to Safeway to pick up gift cards for the several people who failed to give me wish lists!

I did this look two days ago, and I really liked how it came out! But it’s hard for me to resist blues and making them smoky and dark. ;)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Bell Bottom Blue pigment (navy blue base), Vellum eyeshadow (duochrome white), Arctic Grey eyeshadow (light silver), Mont Black eyeshadow (black), Penultimate Liner (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft peach)
  • Lips: Up Note lipstick (beige nude), Naked Frost lipglass (taupe)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Bell Bottom Blue = Navy Blue; Arctic Grey = Electra; Mont Black = Black Tied; Enough Said = Bronzer; Up Note = Cherish; Naked Frost = Mad Cap

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Bell Bottom Blue pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Vellum eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Arctic Grey eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Mont Black packed on and drag into crease using the 239. Darken crease with Mont Black eyeshadow using the 239. Sweep Vellum underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Penultimate Liner on upper lash line, Vellum eyeshadow on lower lash line (use the 219), and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Enough Said blush using the 129. Apply Up Note lipstick to lips, and then top with Naked Frost lipglass for color and shine.

PRESCRIPTIVES TO LAUNCH FLAWLESS FACE PRIMER

Flawless Face Primer gives your skin a smoother, more even texture so makeup looks absolutely flawless and stays on even longer. This weightless formula reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, while helping erase the appearance of redness and discoloration. Skin is soothed immediately, looking clear, less lined, super-smooth.

Prescriptives’ new Flawless Face Primer ($27.50) is designed to prolong the wearing time of your foundation while minimizing the appearance of pores and evening out skin tone. It’s an oil-free, non-acnegenic, dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested product (whew! that’s a mouthful). It uses a silicone elastomer emulsion as the technology behind the results, as well as cross polymers (soft-focus effect, reduces the appearance of lines/wrinkles), thea sinesis extract/sucrose calm to reduce redness, and vitamin C/poria cocos to improve skin clarity.

Availability:  January 2009 at all Prescriptives counters nationwide, www.prescriptives.com and Holt Renfrew in Canada.
