While I already wrote up my in-depth review on all of The Originals, I finally had the time to do some lip swatches!  With that in mind, remember that the application is not always perfect as I merely apply for the sake of taking photos to share the color with everyone! :)

See all five lipglasses and ten lipsticks on my lips… Continue reading →

Launching nationally through the MAC website (www.maccosmetics.com), the contest will also run regionally in 6 key cities across the United States: New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Houston.

The MAC Originals Collection will launch in stores December 19, 2007. The Originals pays tribute to popular product shades both discontinued or existing that consumers covet and can’t live without.

Originals have a lust for life that can never be squelched! Some classics can’t be improved upon — from Carol Channing to Björk to Blondie, Bowie, and every glam rocker and tightrope walker in-between. This season MAC pays tribute to all the high flyers, in the shades, shadows and styles that have stayed with us for all these years, and some of the late-greats we discontinued all too soon. It’s a throwback to the future. Originals are now and forever.

Hey readers!  In case you didn’t know, The Originals has been moved up to launch December 19th (instead of the 26th). It’s already online here, though most of it is “coming soon” but we can drool at the swatches, right?  Expect things to be available for purchase later tonight or tomorrow.

What does everyone have on their lists to must buy, maybe buy, and definitely won’t buy?
