This past Monday, I took an early morning stroll to Macy's to visit one of my favorite MAC counters at Metro Center (in DC) to get a closer look at the Give Me Liberty of London collection. The girls there are so sweet and helpful, and you just can't beat that kinda customer service. There's one really gorgeous chick in particular who always helps me, I sadly don't know her name but she's breathtaking! Anyway, she helped me decide what I should get from this collection. The gorgeous spring-inspired white packaging with soft flowers and cute little birds really stood out. Sometimes I'm a sucker for packaging and I know I shouldn't be..but if its super cute and unique, then dammit, I probably gotta have it.
Oh yes baby! One of my absolute 'Holy Grail' lipsticks from MAC would have to be the gorgeous Rebel (satin - $14). Described as a "vivid pinkish-purple", I have worn this baby out and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. It's one of the most gorgeous colors I've ever worn. It's a satin formula, which tends to be a little drying, but because this color is so beautiful I put up with it. But to be honest, I combat that by moisturizing the crap outta my lips prior to application to minimize the drying. This lipstick also stains a little...just a little. So even after you're done eating or drinking, it'll still be there, but it'll give your lips that "flushed" look. It's a very opaque shade, so you won't need to pile it on. My mom has tried this color and she loves it. I should buy her one so she can stop borrowing mine, but I'm telling you...brown girls, this color would look amazing on you!
