Thank you. This promotion is maddening.I always check for them from you and in my e-mail, but I just don't get why they are making me jump through the hoop. If they offered the whole collection at once it would be an automatic deal. I am notorious for forgetting to input the code even when I know it exists. Sometimes I think they hope the idiots like me to do that.

It occurs to me that I don't think I have worn any MAC eyeshadow for months, except for the Trax in the crease to blend out some colors, and only because it was already in my makeup bag at the time. Does this mean we have grown apart?

I have never worn/used MAC.
____________

I love my eyebrows. I've let them grow in and stick to only tweezing the extreme above or below hairs. They've grown in nicely.

I love buying makeup. But I don't really use much of it. I end up having several mascaras, blushes, and brown colored shadows.

I know - I have been using it since college. I never thought this day would come. But all the messy LE launches and payment snafus are just pushing me away. It is devastating lol.

I did, found better (and cheaper) products. I haven't bought a MAC item in about 3 years and all the ones I have, I rarely reach for. I'm trying to empty them so I can at least get a new lipstick, something I might actually enjoy, but even THAT doesn't motivate me to use 'em.

OK, so you know how you go back to an ex for an easy hookup sometimes? That is what is going to happen when the MAC Styleseeker Collection comes out in a couple of weeks. I am going to dip back in and leave. No spending the night.

LOL!

My new supervisor's other job is at MAC, so thanks to her I've rediscovered my love for it. Her 25% discount doesn't help deter me either. -____-

Neat! I am quoting myself!!!

OK, so, I went back with my too-soon-recent ex (MAC and a dang LE collection) and I now know I should not have dipped back in. My stuff still has not shipped. I ordered it before 3 pm on Thursday (I ordered it Wednesday night Pacific Time) and WHERE is my shipping notice?!? I made the mistake of calling their customer service and of course the woman read me the script with the utmost disdain. I know your policy - you are telling me you can't see it's been two business days and no shipping?!? At this rate, I could have waited for it to come to the stores and picked it up. I will not get it before then.

I am trying not to let this bother me, since I have another package coming today, but it is hard. Plus I dropped a drawer full of NYX shadows last night and I know I broke at least one. When I grabbed a blush today it had curious slivery sparkle all over the bottom. I have not had the guts to look into the drawer yet, but I know I have to when I get home from work.

why oh why must cosmetics be tested on animals?

I love makeup and skincare...however I do think that it is a luxury, and for that I don't think animals should have to be tortured and killed. If the safety of an ingredient is so questionable that it needs to be tested on another species first, I don't think I want to put it on my face anyway...

(sorry, not trying to offend anyone...it just makes me sad...)

Not all makeup or skin care is tested on animals. There are plenty of main stream and indy product companies that produce cruelty free and even vegan makeup and skin care products...all you have to do is research most companies websites or even the product labels. Those companies that don't animal test are very vocal about that selling point.

Additionally, most ingredients that are used in skincare and makeup have been throughly tested previously either through lab testing or feedback data, so most companies don't animal test...and those that do are testing finished products.

As always use your money to support the companies that live up to your own ethical expectations...but don't drop shade on those who may or may not be as concerned with this issue...

Like I said, I wasn't really trying to attack or offend anyone or their standpoint on this issue...Non-animal tested products is a lifestyle that I chose, and I've done a lot of research as to where cruelty-free products are available. Its surprising, though, how many companies claim to be cruelty free or that actually aren't because of parent companies, where they are manufactured, etc. I was just trying to express a personal frustration based on the topic of the thread, not to try to change the opinion or attack someone who might feel differently.

I want one of those faces with the super-defined bone structure. Hollows under the cheekbones and everything. Trying to contour away the babyface only leads to muddy-looking failure.

I wonder if you look like as much of a clown as you act...

I am really enjoying the Sephora Color Lip Last colors I bought last weekend. I want to try some more colors. I might.

How awful is it to unfriend someone on FB because you can't stand to look at her? She's supposed to be a makeup lover too. But her eyebrows look like caterpillars...even caterpillars would be ashamed to look like that. And she needs concealer BADLY. The makeup she does wear helps her none. Wrong colors, poor application, just not well done. Time to let you go, girl.

I am fighting the urge to order and extra Yung Rapunxel and Ruffian Red lipstick right now. It is making me sweat. My backup drawer is full and I have several packages coming in the next week PLUS the Marilyn Monroe collection is coming out soon. I need to take a deep breath. Woosahhhh...

I wasn't super impressed with the Monroe collection outside the packaging. Possibly because, based on the photos, the only things that would look good on me are the lipsticks lol. I vote skipping on that and getting Yung Rapunxel and Ruffian Red!
