Hey, Sailor!

Friday, May 25, 2012



All aboard!  Set sail this season' with MAC's new collection 'Hey Sailor'... a collection of gorgeous colors inspired by vintage pin-up girls.  The line became available in stores Thursday, May 24th and of course that very day, i graced my local Nordstrom's MAC counter anxious to see the collection in person!  It did not disappoint!  If you are a sucker for great packaging like me, you're senses will tumble overboard with all the nautical navy and white stripes!  I must admit, i had my eye on this one lip liner in Shore Leave that just looked so stunning online when i first previewed it.  I quickly asked one of the MAC artists behind the counter to assist me in trying on this lip liner.  I was a bit worried that the color was too light for my lips.  The color stunned in this pale pinkish coral tone.  I had envisioned it paired with a sheer lip tint.  Unfortunately, i worried that it was indeed to light for me and opted to pass on that particular shade.  I'm still kind of sad about it.  I'm wondering if i can still make it work somehow, but for now, i left it behind.  The bronzers were a perfect complement to this collection.  There  was also a wonderfully bright red nail color in Touch of Red that was perfect for channeling your inner pin-up girl and flaunting your pretty manicured nails while sailing through the town.  I highly recommend you try it!  I wound up picking up a gorgeous lipglass in Rivera Life which is basically a bright reddish orange which i love for this season!  I also snatched a great shadow in Barefoot consisting of a gorgeous gold with olive undertones.  It's the purrrrrfect shadow if you're looking for a little shimmer on your eyes!  Pair it with a few swipes of bronzer, dab some lipglass or suntint (with SPF 20 mind you) on your pretty pout, oh and don't forget the fabulous red nails, and I'd say you're ready for a cruise around Manhattan... or better yet, you're ready to set sail around the French Riviera!  Oui Oui!  So run, don't walk to your local MAC counter and check out this line before it's gone... after all, it a limited edition!  As the saying goes, all good things come to an end!  Au Revoir!
