First look at MAC's Wash and Dry collection

I haven't been buying many beauty products lately, although I'm LOVING Hollywood Cerise lipstick from the MAC x Phillip Treacy collaboration. Such a gorgeous shade of pink!

But since MAC put their big summer collection out, I had to buy some from that.  I just got them yesterday and I've been too sick to feel like doing my make up.  My long-time fur baby companion passed suddenly this weekend and probably as a result of that stress, I got a cold, so I'm looking at my goodies but not up to applying them.  (There will be a post coming soon in the "Hep Cats" section about the cause of my sweet girl's paralysis and resulting death and some information about the signs so any of you cat parents can be aware of it.)

But without further ado, here's a few pics of my MAC goodies....

It comes out in stores today, so if you're in the mood for some bright, cheery summer colors for your make up, go load up!

Lippie of the day - Nars Rikugien

This is one of Nar's Satin Lip crayons . Such a nice color and the texture works on older lips (this is something that is becoming a regular part of my assessment of a lip product).  I think this color would look pretty on any woman.  As usual, this is just the lip color, no primer or lip pencil underneath. (Although I am beginning a comparison of lip primers and I'll post my results once I get to try a few.)

Lippie of the day - MAC Grande Dame

Lately I'm loving MAC's Mineralize lipsticks. The formula feels moisturizing and it doesn't settle into my lip lines, which sadly is becoming more important to me.  One of my favorite colors on days when I want to fly under the radar is Grande Dame. It's a beautiful subtle pink.
