    I’d love to try this as a blush- I’m obsessed with corals and other citrus shades this summer, and this looks like it would be perfect to coordinate!

    Thanks again!

  22. Elizabeth

  28. Suji

    Congrats! I can’t believe it sold out so quickly O_o

  29. Angel

    I’d use Marine Life as a blush because it’s so pigmented! Also, my grandma came from Texas to visit California so we took her to dimsum. Yum!

  30. Okay, for lunch I had an apple and some water and… no just kidding, lol.
    First I wanted to say: CONGRATULATIONS! That is huge, you totally deserve it.
    The reason why I would love to have this highlighting powder is because I have been wanting to get it for a while, it would look beautiful just to use as a blush on my cheeks and gives a beautiful glow. It is just beautiful.

  38. Pam

    Congratulations for the 300,000 posts. I would love to try Marine Life and use as a blush. It would be my first blush!!

  40. Heidi

    I want this so bad. It is sold out everywhere I’ve looked !! I don’t own any highlighter and I need it..I’m 47 and need all the help I can get when it comes to cosmetics…lol…Love , Love, Love MAC……

  41. LH

    To be honest Marine Life I’m not to sure about. I don’t completely understand all the hype but would love to see what it is all about and how best to use it with my coloring. Thanks for all the great contest Christine.

  42. Leila

    Well I had some spaghetti for lunch. It was delicious but I think I was just really, really hungry especially since I’m not a huge fan of pasta. It doesn’t feel too good for the tummy.

    Also, I would like Marin Life because I only own 2 MAC products and I LOOOVE MAC. It’s kind of pricey and I can’t afford it. :( Plus I love seahorses. ๐Ÿ˜€

  43. Jess

    Marine Life looks so pretty!!

  44. Tatyana

    Awesomeness, congrats on the number of comments. That is impressive. I really really want the Marine Life. I would put it on my shelf and look and look at it. I would use it every day, and I would treat it very nicely.

    Thank you for this contest.

  45. eden

    i would use this as a highlighter, and i had chicken and rice for lunch hahaa :)!

  46. Ria

    For the first week or so I’d just look at it and go ‘ooooh’ and ‘aaaaah’ admiring it. Then it’d be party period after the exams so this little thing would make me shine!!!You can tell I want it,no?

  47. Emily

    I want Marine Life SUPER BAD!!!! And I think I’ll use it as a blush because of the pigmentation and my fair skin tone. For lunch, I had fishsticks and baked sweet potato fries ๐Ÿ˜‰

  48. Abby

    Congratulations, Christine! That’s an amazing accomplishment. I don’t know what I’d do without Temptalia – and with that many comments, it seems like I’m not the only one!

  49. Nadine

    LOVE the seahorse!!!! I had cereal YUM

  50. Congrats! This would make a pretty blush :)

  51. Ada

    congrats!! I had a sticky rice for dinner yesterday (festive food) and then had a banana, yogurt, and warm tea for breakfast today ^^ I will forever love you marine life…you sold out way too fast online T_T

  52. congrats on the 300 000 comment! you deserve it :)
    i really really want this highlighting powder, i just started my makeup collection! :)
    i really do like the other MAC to the beach stuff, i’m thinking about buying something from there.
    actually, i’m quiet excited, maybe because of this new collection, it reminds me of summer holiday, which will be in for me in 12 days. hurraaay!!

    ok, enough blabbing ๐Ÿ˜€

  53. Ali

    I’d definitely use Marine Life as a blush! Not only is the product itself beautiful but also the color! I want it sooooo bad! Didn’t have dinner yet but I think I’m ordering pizza yay! :)

  54. This is such a pretty product. I’d love to have it! Congrats on so many comments! :)

  55. Sandy

    I want Marine Life because I ordered it on the website a few days ago, then yesterday I get an e-mail that they no longer have it! Booooo!!!

  56. Marrona

    I want it so much because I could not put my hand on of them before it was sold out. First, I will only look at it. It is so beautiful! and then i will wear it as a blush for summer. I haven’t had lunch yet and it is 2:45 pm here. I am starving!

  57. kristie

    Congratulations Christine!!

    I’d love to win Marine Life because it’s ridiculously sold out everywhere that I’ve called to check. I would use this as a blush.

  58. Alana

    oh marine life? yummy, i would dance for joy if i won!

  59. Kerri

    I already have one to use but if I won another I’d just hang it on my wall or something to admire and stare at.

  60. Congrats!

    I want Marine Life cos it sold out over here within hours, so I missed it :(

  61. Brenda

    Let’s hope I’ll be lucky this time… I want this soooo much!
    Since I’m in Europe, I already had my dinner: fish, veggies and potatoes!

  62. OMGOSH!!! It’s sooo adorable! Congrats on the 300,000 comments!!!! <3

  63. Hii! I want Marine Life Highlight powder because it seems SO unique, beautiful, and I love the design!! I’ll use it as a highlighter, a blush, and possibly just stare at it’s beauty.

    The best part of my day was TO THE BEACH LAUNCHING A DAY EARLY!!!!! I called my store @ 1030 and got ready in 5 minutes because I had to pick my parents up at 1130 from the airport but I’ve been looking forward to To The Beach for months!!

  64. seton

    thinking of indian food for lunch

  65. angie

    i would use it as a blush, and maybe a little on the eyes with gold shadow for a summery look!

  66. I really want it, because it will take AAAAGGGGGEEEEESSSSSS to arrive in Brazil… (I’d probably save money to go to US first…) and I would wear it everyday… especially close to Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, to match the sunset!!! I really wish I could get one Marine Life… and I really hope to help you to reach another 100000 comments (I try to leave a message at least once a day – I usually loose myself on the amount of news you publish everyday!!! – which is REALLY good)

  67. faye

    marine life looks so pretty and I hope i’ll win

  68. Sameen

    I had scrambled eggs and pancakes with chocolate sauce drizzled on top for breakfast today! it totally made me half an hour late to school, but SO worth it! :]

  69. Klara

    I really want this cause it is just perfect, but sold out at my Mac store :(

  89. I got to get my hands on the marine life highlighter it looks so beautiful. I probably won’t use it as a highlight but as a blush cause it looks really pink and coraly…I’ve been trying to get this but it sold out in 2 hours like you said it would. I love temptalia its my #1 resource for all makeup related things. I hope I win that would be awesome but if I don’t ill still visit your website religously lol <3 tasha

  90. ozlem

    That lovely seahorse will be my lucky charm. I might even put a dab on my 5 year old daughter’s little nose.

  91. Trina

    I’m so glad that I live in Canada. All of the products are still available.


    • jennylevi

      you are so lucky by the time I get to the counter it will be sold out i have to work this weekend!!!

  92. WasianBeauty

    Congratulations on reaching 300,000!!! Marinelife looks like it can used multiple ways! And looks very
    versatile. Not to mention VERY cute packaging! I need it for my collection!! :)

  93. Marine Life is just gorgeous, it looks so pretty!
    And well, what more to tell?

    I have sore throat and I’m listening to this kids popsong because me and 2 people from my school are going to teach some kids a dance on it.

    Oh and I’m a total Fleetwood Mac addict xD
    Needed to get that out as well. Anyone here who loves them?

    twitter: caro__line

  94. Hannah

    Marine Life looks sooo pretty!! Since I’m fair, I would definitely use this more as blush instead of a highlight!!

  95. Congrats on the 300,000! How amazing is that? I probably want Marine Life just as much as anyone else that comments and I think I’d use it as more of a blush than a highlight, Especially after the gold spray on stuff has gone. I got my exam results today and they were all v. good so that was probably the best part of my day. I skipped lunch today as I had a big breakfast and then I had a slice of cake at coffee time. :) xx

  96. Karen
