MAC Attacks and the Fall Line Up for Makeup

mebeauty & fashion

I'm not gonna lie to you. I'm no fashion diva. I like style. I like to look nice (unless I'm working in my home office, and then I'm lucky if I remember to brush my teeth, put on a bra, and comb my hair). But, while I do love getting dressed up, style really isn't my main area of expertise.

If I want to make sure I am dressed to the 9s (which happens to be my fave number BTW), I call my sister Melinda (who is a stylist and makeup artist) or Allison from Petit Elefant (who knows more than a thing or two about fashion and how to look fabulous). Or, I go to one of my happy places... the MAC counter at our nearby Nordstrom.

Last weekend, I did the latter. I had a justifiable reason for going (why I felt the need to justify it is beyond me). I was fresh out of blush (Pink Swoon to be exact. Isn't that name the best? Reminds me of OPI and their clever nail polish names.) Anyway... while there, I ended up having a MAC attack! Have you ever had one? It's awesome defined.

A MAC attack is where you walk into the store completely sane, but end up going nuts at the MAC counter. Now don't get me wrong. I didn't spend a gazillion dollars or have an out of body experience (almost!). But, I did check out the fall flavors and indulged in a few, getting giddier by the second. (I call them flavors, because MAC's eye shadows are seriously that delicious!)

My new beauties? A basic, matte brown called Espresso. How Italian! A cool looking dual concoction called Fresh Green Mix. And my favorite? Club. Because I love dancing almost more than life? I won't lie. That may have had something to do with it. But more, I think, because of its blueish/brownish shade that spices up the traditional brown, making fall feel even more fun than normal this year! I can just imagine the sassy wool tights and boots I'll wear with it, which I may need to go and buy tonight since tomorrow's September and fall is right around the corner. Yay!

Next time you're in the mood for a little pick-me-up or just want to get in the mood for autumn, head to your favorite make-up counter and check out the fall line up and get carried away in the colors!

What's on your fall fashion line up and what fun makeup are you looking forward to wearing with it?

    Funny … we just moved to Boise and
    I noticed that there’s a stand-a-lone
    MAC store outside of Macy’s! Yep…
    right here in Boise, Idaho. I’ll also

    MAC counter … but you may have
    convinced me to do just that AND
    I think I’ll pop in to the department
    store to look at the fall-color-tights!

    Thanks for the inspiration ~j.

  2. You are making me want to have a MAC attack just by that picture! I am going to hide under a rock as I say this…. I’ve never been to MAC. I’ve heard all about their eyeshadows and probably should go get some, but I’ve seriously never been there!

  3. Go! Go now! You’ll never be the same again LOL!

    But seriously, their colors are AMAZING! And they do free makeovers. A little pampering is good for the soul :D.

    Thanks for your comment!
