You ever get bitten by that “Dang, if I don’t buy this now…I’m gonna have a hard time finding it later”-bug? Well, I have a rash from that bug and the bite-marks to prove it. A few days ago I went to the MAC website and randomly clicked their Goodbyes link and saw a gang of items on the chopping block — it’s a sad sight! Tons of eyeshadows, lipsticks, glosses and more waiting to be adopted by you. I didn’t buy a ton of stuff, but I did pick up a few items I’ve been eye’ing for the past few months but didn’t wanna buy when they first came out. I still see about four more things I’m gonna have to grab before they’re gone and then sold online for crazy high crackhead prices. I’m not gonna review any of what I bought right now, but I will post descriptions and tiny snippets of my initial thoughts…
See? I didn’t go overboard (still saving up for MAC To the Beach lol)

I think this is the third time I’ve actually purchased “going, going, gone” items from MAC, and I’m happy with what I got. I love all of the lip colors. Utter fun is gorgeous and very wearable, and since it’s a lustre, it’s also very buildable. A nice semi-sheer lipstick sexy for summer. Spiced Tea is another pretty color, perfect for a nude lip with a twist. The glaze formula gives a tiny bit of dimension, and the new Tunnel of Love Superglass looks gorgeous on top of it. I had a sample of the Bi-Tone mineralize blush that was crushed up — btw, shattered mineralize blushes are insaaanely pretty!! But anyway, I had a sample because the MAC counter I frequent didn’t have any to sell, so when I saw this online…duh, I had to get it. Full Fuchsia blush is fabulous – extremely pigmented, smooth, matte and has that signature blue undertone that ‘fuchsia’ is known for. You have to be very careful when you’re dealing with this blush though, you could easily end up lookin like Lil Kim’s Raggedy Ann lookin ass — no bueno.
Oh! And guess who has a tumblr now? visit and follow Cosmetic Porn (I promise it’s work safe lol). It’s basically one of three accounts I have, where I’m only going to show yummy pictures of makeup, and who doesn’t love that? Mmmmm! Now I have to figure out what I’m gonna do with the other two accounts I have…anyway, have a great day folks!
