Adventures "To the Beach"

Two weeks ago, I was on a mission.  And when I set my mind to something, I put all my energy into seeing it through and getting it.

I have recently been getting more and more into makeup.  My usual staples have been lipstick and eyeliner, but I've become more adventurous as of late and have been purchasing, and mastering the application of, eyeshadows and paying more attention to blushes and foundations.  I'm really enjoying the whole idea of makeup...  It's funny, years ago I couldn't understand why women were spending sooo much money on this stuff, but now I get it.  Besides wanting to look "better", it's fun.  The colors, the brands, the shopping for it, the trying it on...  I can see where it could become addictive.

Well, MAC recently came out with a new collection of makeup called To the Beach.  I heard about it online and didn't think much of it until I saw the Marine Life powder.  Oh, how gorgeous!  I had to have it; I have never seen anything like it.  Went online to their site... Oh, no!  It's sold out already?!  I must HAVE THIS!

Let me tell you - the next day I got to the mall right when it opened and saw that the MAC kiosk hadn't opened yet so I went to Macy's MAC counter.  No one was there.  Well, after about 5mins or so, "Tony" walked in and positioned himself behind the counter.  He was so nice.  He asked me what I wanted and I told him the Marine Life and he looked confused.  I was thinking, "Uh-oh."  Well, the display hadn't been set up yet so he apologized and quickly put out all the items.  I couldn't stop staring at it!!  Even a makeup consultant from a different counter came by and admired the powder.

I GOT THE MARINE LIFE!!!  (A stunning blush of coral and pink with a gold overspray and a seahorse embossed in the middle.)  Even as I was paying for it, "Tony" was starting to get calls from people asking whether it was in stock.

As I was about to leave the mall, I stopped by the kiosk and "Gwendolyn" helped me.  I tried on Thrills lipstick at Macy's but it really didn't "thrill" me.  It was prolly the lighting b/c I decided to sample it again and I liked it.

I GOT THRILLS, TOO!!!  (A beautiful shade of coral with a gold frost.)

I felt like a little kid, big smile, arms a swinging with my black MAC bags in tow.

I was so happy!  I told "Tony" that I was just going to stare at the powder for a few weeks, not even touch it, b/c I didn't wanna mess up the design.  We both laughed.

Ok, enough blabbing already.  Mission accomplished.  One down, many more to go.
