MAC Fall 2007 Collections

Call it the calm before the holiday sparkle and shimmer, but the looks this Fall are decidedly matte, and MAC is all over this trend.

mac matteMAC has a new addition to their permanent collection in  Matte2, sixteen intensely pigmented and completely matte eye shadows. Colours range from super crazy bold to delicately muted. I love the Copperplate shade, a mid-tone grey. Even though theyre uber-matte, they still blend well. They retail for $14US/$16.50CA.

matteneMattene Lipstick is a new long-wearing matte product for lips. There are some lovely colours in this line with shade names that pay homage to the forties including Classic Dame, You Say Tomato, and Rougette. Mattene is silkier, softer, and more comfortable than some of the other matte textures out there, including MACs regular matte formula. Its available until November 21 and is $14.50US/$17.50CA.

Also new from MAC is their voluminizing mascara, Plush Lash, available in either Plushblack and Brownette. Plush Lash is available September 27-January 1, 2008, so get it while the gettins good. Priced at $11 US/$13CA.

Another MAC giveaway is coming soon!

This week we review Almay Smart Shade Blush, and Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick  in the universally flattering Aishwarya Beige / (named for Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai). We also talk about the price of shaving razors, and answer the question, how many blades is enough???

Reality Check:
Our friend Darren Barefoot recently posted about the Burqini, a bikini for Islamic women. This body-covering swim suit is selling-out online, and gaining popularity with non-Muslim women of all ages.

We will be back in *two weeks* with the next show (Airdrie is having a short holiday with the family before Dereks next round of chemotherapy starts mid-October)

Thanks for your continued emails and support of the show via the tip-jar.

Last year alone, three professional models, including sisters Louisel and Eliana Ramos, died from complications related to their eating disorders.

While the images are clearly shocking, some health experts are concerned that the images may actually have a negative impact on some suffering from pre-existing eating disorders, who may feel pressure to lose more weight after seeing the ad campaign.
