Day in Beauty, Vol. 12: The MAC Zac Posen Collection, ChocStars, as well as a Belated blog birthday

Lids, lips as well as cheeks by MAC Zac Posen
Hey, baby, you’re a ChocStar!

Yes, you checked out that properly — a ChocStar, which is somewhat different than a rock star.


How funny are these chocolate bars, though? (Please note the tabbies.) I discovered them at a fun candy store called SweetE organic in my old stomping grounds in Mill Valley. It’s just a bit shop, however they have every square inch full of fascinating speciality candies — like organic chocolates, gluten-free gummies, vegan candy, sugar-free candies, dairy-free candies, SO numerous CANDIES!

Add it to your listing of dessert-related things to perform in southern Marin before or after hiking Mt. Tam, sightseeing in Sausalito or buying in Corte Madera or Mill Valley. You might have lunch at Pizza Antica (OOH! try one of their chopped salads with a piadini.), as well as then swing by SweetE organic for dessert.

It’s best next to a fantastic store called The Spanish Table, where I might actually spend hours taking a look at olives, wine, recipe books, maps as well as bars of Spanish chocolate.

I walked in yesterday while El Hub as well as I were out as well as about. With infant woman coming very, extremely soon, we’ve been trying to stay close to house as well as be prepared to hop on the freeway to the medical facility in San Francisco, buuut I was starting to go a bit stir crazy, so I had to get out of the house.

Can’t assist it. I’m antsy!

Packaging for the MAC Zac Posen collection
And the buying yesterday was precisely what I needed. It was likewise a ideal reason to wear makeup. I busted out the new MAC Zac Posen collection (available now on the internet as well as concerning stores as well as counters Feb. 25 with March 24) as well as did a look similar to what I’m using today — matte black winged liner; soft purple, plum as well as taupe lids; warm bronzed cheeks; as well as hot pink matte lips.

Wearing pieces from the MAC Zac Posen collection

I was secretly hoping the collection would enable me to accomplish Zac’s signature eye roll from job Runway, however alas…it did not.

It’s really, truly difficult to look as exhausted as well as totally over it as Zac does when he’s sitting in the judge’s chair, LOL!

Along with the provocative packaging, which reminds me a bit of MAC Brook Shields part deux, with all the matte gray, I like the mix of warm as well as awesome shades. With its plums as well as taupes, the eye combination is rather awesome toned, while the bronzer as well as a few of the lip colors (like the orange as well as the nude) are surprisingly warm.

As for skin, it gets the matte treatement, as well as the eyes get the additional oomph of black liner.

For the record, there are rather a few re-promotes in the collection (the liner, the mascara, the deal with powder as well as Phloof eyeshadow), as well as even though I such as this type of classic, fine-tuned look with black liner as well as vintage orange as well as hot pink lipsticks, I don’t understand if I’d kick down doors for these specific products… nothing is truly standing apart to me. I dig the bronzer as well as lipsticks, however they remind me of things I’ve seen over at MAC.

Happy belated birthday!!!

In other news, assumption which makeup blog quietly turned nine years old last Saturday.

Sometimes I can’t even believe it. who understood that composing this bit evaluation of the Barbie Love’s MAC haul I got at Nordstrom all those years back would result in nine years as well as 11,000 charm posts? I can’t believe I’m still at it nine years later…

The blog has been BY far the longest job I’ve ever worked on, as well as it’s been an outstanding ride. say thanks to you for hanging out with me. quem sabe? perhaps next year we’ll make it to 10. Fingers as well as toes crossed!
