As the holiday season quickly approaches — yes, holiday (can you even?!) — it’s always nice to have an all-in-one palette handy for touching up after work for social gatherings with friends. The bronzing powder gives skin a nice little boost without the heavy look of foundation. The eye and lip shades coordinate beautifully and adjust for day to evening wear. Add this little compact to your “treat yourself” list! …you deserve it, mama!

The aura of couture, the drama of the dressing room, the glamour of getting ready to step out for the holidays. From armoire to dressing table mirror to full-length mirror and back again.

M∙A∙C Marilyn Monroe, a colour collection that channels the legend’s lustre and sex appeal in shades and formulas meticulously Marilyn. Lipsticks in rapturous reds, gleaming Dazzleglass, a dramatic 35 Lash, False Lashes Extreme Black and Eye Shadows in shimmering metallic and diamond tones provide silver-screen allure. The finishing touch: Nail Lacquers destined to be a girl’s best friend and Beauty Powder to evoke that flawless Forever Marilyn.

Now, this is what I’m talking about! This…THIS right here is what a MAC capsule collection is all about. I am here for you, Miss Monroe.

I am particularly fond of the matte lipsticks. “Me” pass up a fiercely-pigmented matte lippie, uhm – never! I live for matte lips and this collection satisfies. Of the five lipsticks in the collection, three are matte: Deeply Adored, a deep scarlet, Charmed I’m Sure – a dark true red, and Scarlet Ibis, a bright orange red. From fair complexion to deep, the lip shades offer something for every statement-lip seeker. I like both Deeply Adored and Scarlet Ibis as go-to, everyday reds. Charmed I’m Sure is a bit bolder…a shade I might reserve for days when I’m feeling particularly filled with sass (and skin is pristine). 

Other notables: The lip pencils — So you see, there’s a theme here. The lip products are definitely the heroes of the collections. And let’s be honest. . . close your eyes, conjure a visual of Miss Marilyn — what’s the first thing that comes to mind? It’s her lips: those gorgeous, expertly lined, and perfectly filled in lips.


Lipstick: Deeply Adored – Deep scarlet (Matte), Charmed I’m Sure – Dark true red (Matte), Pure Zen – Warm nude (Cremesheen), Love Goddess – Mid-tone pink red (Satin), Scarlet Ibis – Bright orange red (Matte)

Dazzleglass: Phiff! – Sheer yellow peach, Little Rock – Soft sheer white with pearl

Lip Pencil: Beet – Vivid reddish-pink, Redd – Clearly red, Cherry – Vivid bright blue/red

Eyeshadow: How to Marry – Soft White (Veluxe Pearl), Preferred Blonde – Pale champagne beige (Veluxe Pearl), Silver Screen – True silver (Veluxe Pearl), Showgirl – Dark blue grey (Veluxe Pearl)

Eye Kohl: Smolder – Intense black, Fascinating – Intense matte white

Penultimate Eye Liner: Rapidblack – Rich deep carbon black

Penultimate Brow Marker: Universal – Natural warm taupe-brown

Brow Finish: Clear

False Lashes: Extreme Black – Carbon black

Beauty Powder:Forever Marilyn – Sheer pale peach

Powder Blush: Legendary – Pale soft coral (Satin), The Perfect Cheek – Neutral pink beige (Matte)

Nail Lacquer: Vintage Vamp – Rich deep retro wine (Cream), Stage Red – Dark berry red (Cream), Flaming Rose – True red (Cream), Kid Orange – Coral (Cream), Rich, Rich, Rich – Glittery gold (Pearl)

Eye Lashes:  35 Lash – Dramatic lash with emphasis on the centre of the lash

I’ll just go on and ‘fess up. . .I havn’t been into MAC in a while.

The collections get a bit repetitive. And back when I used to cover lots of MAC on my site — the collections were churning out like every 6 weeks…a girl could barely keep up!

But recently, I was looking to backslide on my classic red pout and had nude on the mind. I dug deep into my stash and pulled out MAC Touch Lustre. . . and just like that, it’s all love. This is totally going to be my go to nude for summer. What’s yours?

Heads up ladies! Nordstrom has once again partnered with MAC to offer an exclusive beauty buy. I love Nordstrom+MAC exclusives (especially the holiday sets!). Starting today, April 12 MAC Opulash Mascara is available via Nordstrom.

Here are the deets:

“New Opulash is the boldest, baddest gal in the joint. Cast a spell over the room with a sweep of MAC’s technologically advanced magic wand – a feat of beauty engineering that grabs the lash at the root to lift and holds on to exaggerate the lashes. The tapered tip makes inner corners sleeker to reach so never again worry about spider-web lash syndrome. Pump up your look with an extreme volumizing formula that curls and separates for thick, dark, dramatics lashes”.

Nordstrom+MAC beauty exclusives are legendary! Trust me, this is one exclusive beauty buy you won’t want to miss. MAC Opulash Mascara ($14) is available exclusively in Nordstrom stores (and Nordstrom.com) on April 22nd… However, if you’re dying to get in on the ground floor (and I know you are), you may pre-order today! Yes, TODAY!

In honor of our current crappy snow condition, I have decided to dig in the crates and re-publish a FACE OF THE DAY piece I published during a really big snow storm in 2008. Enjoy!


Happy Snow Day folks –

Brrrr…..How’s everyone holding up in this snow?
Most of us have been confined to our homes all day due to the in-climate weather.  In Jersey, by 11AM, we had already accumulated a couple inches of snow.  So for most of us, business as usual was stalled and a Snow Day commenced. For yours truly, a Snow Day means idle hands. What to do? What to do? What’s a silly makeup loving girl to do with sooo much time on my hands?…Hmmmm, any suggestions????
Uhhh, Duh….play in makeup of course!
Well alright! That’s exactly what I did.
Behold today’s FACE OF THE DAY.
I give you – “Chocolate Snow Bunny Snow Day” FACE OF THE DAY…complete with fun/ silly winter hats. Stay warm and stay safe…it’s a mess out there!

And here’s what I’m wearing:

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Dark/ Natural and Shimmer – Shimmer side used as a highlighter on planes of cheeks
Shiny Mama Shimmer all in Ice on planes of cheeks over MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Shimmer
Make Up For Ever Sculpting Blush in Shade 14 (I think, number is somewhat rubbed off)

Urban Decay primer potion
Naked Cosmetics Desert Sunset
Tarte Cosmetics (Icy pink color. Exact color unknown because its a palette.  Palette name also unknown, unfortunately.  Its the purple quilted leather-ette palette w/ 10 shimmer eye colors)
MAC Handwritten as crease color
MAC Soft Brown and Bamboo as brow highlight
MAC Brown Pencil in Spiked
MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Engraved on Upper/Lower Lashline and Waterline
Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara in Extreme Black
Diane Brill Cosmetics Gloss in Jewelled G-String
