    An Ebay listing with a bunch of MAC items:

    NC25 Studio Sculpt foundation
    Warm Pigment Holiday gift set
    Triple Yum Lipglass
    Refined MSF
    Ever So Rich Cremesheen gloss

    3 of those are from the yet to be released Sugar Sweet Collection! =) Plus of all my luck, the 1st foundation I was going to get anyways, so its perfect! The only thing I don’t think I’ll care for is Ever So Rich since I already swatched it at the store. One of my good friends wears NC25 and is a MA, so I’m going to give the other foundation to her. It will be a thank you for booking my “cousin to be” for her engagement pictures and wedding day.

      Hi Christy,
      If you don’t mind me asking: How did you get your hands on Sugarsweet stuff already? Do you also work for Mac? I’m so jealous! And curious…:P

      • Christy

        Hi Macaddict,
        No, I don’t work for MAC. Although I wish I did! I’m completely the opposite, working in IT. Anyways, I found someone on Ebay who had it all up for sale in one listing. I think she must work in the cosmetics industry though because she had a lot of huge lots of NARS, Smashbox, MAC and Chanel. In any case, Sugarsweet is less than a month away! :)

  40. Diana

    *Mac skin finish in ( soft and Gentle )

  63. Grace

    MAC Studio Sculpt. I’m actually new to MAC, so I didn’t realized that it was one of their newest products. I’m kinda also a newbie to foundation. I’ve tried Maybelline, but they were too pink! I tried Estee Lauder, but that formulation was for mature ladies with drier skin (hence, it was smooth on application, but oily mid-day). I wanted to try MAC because of their variery of shades (I was hoping to find one that matched, and it did). I’m still not sure of it. For oily skin, I found it to be a little dry (I kinda had to pull on my skin for even coverage). Any tips? Please help!

    • Kayc

      Hi Grace,
      Yes, the Studio Sculpt does have a thicker consistency since it is gel-based. I find that applying with a brush helps (I use the MAC 109, but you can get something else that is similar if you prefer). I place a bit of foundation on the back of my hand and use the brush to stipple it onto my skin, covering small areas at a time.. and then I buff it for a more even and smoother application.
      If you still find it difficult, you can apply a bit of your moisturizer and mix it with the Studio Sculpt to make it a bit more “liquid” (so to speak), and to help with easier application.

      Hope that helps!

    • evangelia

      Hey Grace,
      How much coverage do you need? I have oily skin too, and I’ve found that the best look for my skin in spot touches with concealer (just on blemishes/undereye discoloration), and pressed powder. Lancome Photogenique concealer (in the pot, not tube) is awesome on pimples, and they have really great shades. I also find many skin products too pink for my complexion (I have heavy yellow undertones) and their Light Buff shade is perfect for me. I LOVE MAC Studio Fix pressed powder, because it’s very good coverage, but it’s dry and soaks up the oil. Also, blotting with rice paper every few hours works wonders :)

  64. Yaya

    I last bought Costal Scents’ 26 eyeshadow and blush palette, but I just got it today so I haven’t tried it yet. Last week at MAC, I got Pink Fish TLC, Missy Slimshine lipstick, and Lavender Whip.

  69. Macaddict

    Earlier today after work, I had to stop @ Mac to get me another compact blot powder in medium. I had dropped it on the tile floor at work earlier this morning & it had shattered. It was almost new!! And to top it off, the powder that broke had also been purchased a week or so ago for the same reason!!! I swear, I go through these blot powders like nothing because I’m so clumsy with them. That’s also the only m/u that I seem to drop and break… :(
    But, to cheer myself up, I did buy while I was there 3 paints: Bamboom, Sublime Nature, and Untitled.

  70. Linds

    Cocoa butter stick from The Body Shop. It keeps my lips moist without the flakyness.
