What did I end up hauling? Blanc Type and Prussian matte2 shadows, Guava pro gloss, 5 of the 7 beauty powders (didn’t get Paperwhite or Lightly Lilac), Plushblack plush lash mascara, clear lipglass, and Reflects Glitters in: Antique Gold, Bronze, Rust, & Very Pink. I forgot to pick up Lip Erase and Inkspill liquidlast liner, damn!
The trip to the PRO store was a ridiculous amount of fun, because they let us mill around, hauled out the new launches just for us (they’re not out until tomorrow), let us play until our hearts were content, and generally, our makeup artist, David, was awesome. He showed us how amazing the Reflects Glitters are, and how you can really doll up your lips with them! Be sure to look him up if you happen to stop into the San Francisco PRO store, because he’s a veritable fountain of information and pleasant as can be.

We have an update on the Originals collection! Many of the items are more like improvements of existing or old shades that are consumer favorites, but perhaps not MAC addict favorites, but who else is tired of Kitschmas coming out? Many of the products featured in this collection will be reformulated to be better than their original counterparts, hence why some of the names aren’t dead ringers for older colors.
Here’s what we’ve recently learned about what’s in store…
A Little Folie

Tomorrow I head off to the PRO store with fellow beauty blogger, Karen, to make a huge birthday haul! Okay, maybe not huge, but we’ll see, right? We always hope that we’ll be dissuaded from what we want, but somehow manage to come home with not just our list, but several off-list items as well.
I’d love to your opinions on any PRO items you think I should check out! BTW, I will do my best to swatch the new PRO launches
- Lip Erase in Dim (maybe Pale?)
- Gloss in Guava (maybe Pink Pearl and Rosy Coral)
- Face & Body (C4)
- Studio Fix Pastels
- Cream Colour Base in Pink (maybe Antiqued Gold, Rich Coral)
- Beauty Powder/Loose in Drizzle Gold, Daisydust, Peach Haze (I hope these are out!)
- Shaping Powders (actually have these on their way to me!)
- Sculpting Powers (also on the way)
I expect I will also pick up a few more of the Matte2 shadows while I’m there. Hopefully I can control myself on the Mattenes I’m also interested in checking out the 174 brush, all of the pro glosses, the new reflects glitters (if they’re out), drool over a few pigments I don’t have, and the like.

What makeup do you have stashed in your purse right now? Women are notorious for carrying more in than purse than need, and it got me to wonder just how much makeup are we keeping in our little (okay, big) bags?
Me? I hardly carry makeup with me, other than the lipstick/lipglass I used for the look of that day. I think all I have in my purse is Lil’ Sizzler lip gelee! So I think I might defy the norm in this respect.
