MAC put up their list of products that are being discontinued soon and in that list are a bunch of mascaras and some long-time lipstick favourites like Honeyflower, 3-D, Eden Rocks and Underworld.

Shadesticks are also going along with Dazzleglass Cream and some fragrances and many more.

free shipping available to addresses in Canada/the US through midnight next Sunday, January 9th with code LASTCALL at checkout.

MAC is introducing a new mascara formula this week they call "False Lashes". reading the blurbs on it, it doesn't sound like there are fibres in it, like with Maybelline's "The Falsies" because it is supposed to be safe for contact lens wearers.

this product has one of those smaller brushes and is supposed to have a curling and thickening formula with more pigmentation than regular mascara products.

at $18 US/$21 Cdn, it better be good!

Peacocky collection available online today and at stores/counters tomorrow - introduces two new products:

Mega Metal eye shadow, a powder that they claim goes on creamy and stays creaseless - 15 colours; and

Kissable lip colour, a product that "applies with the smooth glide of a lip gloss, then finishes with the creamy pigment-rich look of a lipstick." available in 12 shades including a blue one (!) and a gorgeous deep red they call Love Peck!

these products are more pricey than usual MAC shadows and glosses.

free shipping from the website to addresses in Canada/the US through midnight Sunday with code PEACOCKY at checkout.

geez, they're going berserkers with the new collections again this year.

this time it's a mini-collection (thankfully back at standard prices) from Mickey Contractor (yes, that's his name), the director of MAC India. there are 4 eye shadows and 4 lipsticks, an eye shadow quad, a couple of shades of blush, lip glass and fluid line.

some items are already sold out online and will only be available at stores and counters.

I am told it's only at PRO stores. Crap. That's a long drive, but I want that green shadow. I am hoping for the best.

I am over the MAC + Mickey contractor thing. I think I wanted several products but there is no rhyme or reason to what stores have the collection in LA, so I have not been able to see them. I really wanted to look at them because they are always a little different online than in the flesh. I didn't want to buy then have to return which is a hassle. The shadows I want now have a status of "coming soon" online. But they said sold out a week ago. I am confused and tired of calling stores to find out they have never heard of it. I finally got in touch with someone at MAC Customer Service and they told me the random stores carrying the product, so I might try a couple of them in a day or so. But right now, I am not as enthused as I was. Now, that is not say if I see them one day I won't snap them up.

It IS! I just KNOW I will love the Veluxe Pearl splendor of Oomph! Green loves me! Enjoy looking! I just want to know how that Sur blush will look on my brown skin.

i'm not a green eye shadow person, but i have to admit that Oomph! was pretty impressive. it's like a perfect emerald. does that help at all?

this week it's the relaunch of the Mineralize Foundation. for anyone who's tried it in the past, you will find you need one shade lighter than usual.

they're also offering free standard shipping to addresses in Canada/the US with code FLAWLESS at checkout - good to midnight on Sunday, January 16th.

Oh that is a good description. Yes, it helps, but what also helps is the free shipping code. They are FINALLY offering Oomph and Saffron online. I just snagged it.

MAC has lauched a "foundation-finder" on their web site. this won't help those of you who have problems with their foundations, but it did help me determine which one i should try next.

this weekend, you can get a free sample of Prep & Prime and free standard shipping to addresses in Canada and the US using code PREP at checkout. offer good until midnight on Sunday, January 23rd.

OK so I debuted the Oomph eyeshadow this morning. I used it on lids, with Fiction in my inner crease and Carbon in the outer crease, Blacktrack Fluidline, black mascara.

I like so far, because Oomph reminds me of what I had hoped Fiction would be back in the day. More color payoff, better texture. I wanted this one to be more of a jewel-y green, but it is an herbal-y green. I like it either way. Wears well so far. Tomorrow I try the Saffron shadow!
