WOW!!!  Look at these new Promo Pics from MAC….Gorgeous!!  And they are claiming to be using some really cool new technology, they are calling “water charged technology”.  They also say it has Vitamin C, green tea, and other free radical fighters in the formula.  (read the official blurb below for more info)  I honestly have no idea whether it works or not but I am loving the promotion for these products and the packaging is by far the best I have seen in at least two years.  Such a change from the norm: stark silver.  Yes you read right – stark silver.  Scroll down for pics of the products.  (and I really wanted to write this is in a great silver color but it didn’t work out, so this is what I came up with)

So what do my readers think?  You think this is gonna be worth the hype or do you think it’s just a total 180 from the Volcanic Ash Mask and other Volcanic Body Products?  Hmmm…


When we have darker skin, not all makeup flatters us. We have to be careful not to overload our faces with makeup because that looks unnatural. We’ll show you the steps to follow to look radiant, and to make yourself up with one of the most fashionable techniques this season:


–  Don’t overuse corrector and foundation. Remember that your kind of skin only needs foundation and corrector in certain areas.

–  If you use a tanning powder, blend it well and don’t overuse it or the result will look unnatural.

Smokey eyes step by step

Once you are totally made up, it’s time to make up the eyes. To do that you will need these products:

–  A medium or dark golden shadow

–  A cream pearly shadow (very light)

–  A black eye pencil

–  Black mascara

–  An eye shadow brush

Follow these steps:

1. Apply the golden shadow on the entire mobile eyelid just as you see in the drawing:

2. Increase the intensity of the color as much as you wish, applying the golden shadow on the mobile eyelid. It’s very important that you make up just up to the bone area and not beyond:

3. The next step is to make up the eye on the inside of the lids with a black pencil to give more intensity to the look.

4. Finally, apply the gold tone under the lower lid and blend. Then give a touch of color on the fixed eyelid with the pearly shadow.


–  Give a light touch of rose blush to your cheeks. When you have darker skin, it’s very flattering.


–  You can make up the lips in a gold tone to create harmony with the eyes, or if you prefer just use a transparent gloss.

Yes there is another line coming out at MAC next month. I don’t know – they seem to love to put things out so fast that you can’t really think about whether you need it or not. You just buy. This must be their system – I don’t know what genius (or evil genius?) thought this method up, but I have to say this collection is looking pretty dang good. And our friends at temptalia already put up the pics so I am gonna post them here for your viewing pleasure.

–Ok how amazing are the lippies and the ROSE BLUSH?  Wow, I am really liking this collection.  But I have to keep reminding myself – I will not buy just for the packaging, I will not buy just for the packaging, I will not buy just for the packaging.

It’s not working.  Oh well, this collection rocks.

Ok, this post is a long time coming – I have been putting it off for too long.  But let me just say….Wow Style Warriors is totally catching my eye!  I am LOVING this stuff!  On the last post I did about this I said, ok I hope they get the animal print packaging right so it looks more CoCo Chanel and less Trailer Park mama with Virginia Slim.

So here it is, the formal unveiling of the Style Warrior packaging…….
