I went to the MAC store for the 1st time last night!
I had SOOO much fun. I love this store!! I didn't even know it was in the mall near my house. LOL My sister told me about it. Then I told my husband it was cheaper than Sephora he said, "I like MAC already". LOL

So, I tried out a few of the foundations and ended up buying the Select Foundation NW30. The SA put Studiolights under my eyes (after foundation) and I liked the way it looked so I got it in Mellowed. But, I think might be too light and I just heard that MAC is discontinuing it? I LOVE the eyeshadows, pigments, paints..I want them all! LOL But, I just got one*Angelcake* eyeshadow. It's a really pretty pink. Plus,I got a free small foundation brush..can you believe it?, and a pk of 30 Demi-wipes and a sample size of the Fast response eye cream. I'm So excited I haven't been able to go to sleep yet. But, I have try..I have to get up at 6am.


The downside...my husband said I can't buy no makeup until Valentine's day..LOL

Thank you! To all of you MAC lovers who gave me the excuse to go to MAC last night!!
Now you have to teach me how to figure out their color <SHADES>system...like NW and stuff. I'm so glad I found MUT!!!

I'm so glad you got to go to MAC! I like MAC because the price is reasonable. If the Studiolights is too light you can go back and return it or exchange it as long as you have the receipt so you are not wasting your money on a color that you are not quite sure if it works for you. I've returned stuff to their store before, it's no big deal. I'm not sure what NW stands for in their foundation color scheme. When I used to use Studiofix (It made me breakout so I haven't used it in the past couple of years) I had the SA at MAC to match me up with the right color. Did you check out the new color collection called High Tea? I went to check it out couple of days ago and I love the lipstick colors, very neutral. MAC comes out with new collections all the time and with limited edition colors. They really are masters at marketing.
But the color collections are fun. Enjoy your new MAC stuff!

Hi Reija, It does seem to be the "in between line" (Drugs tore - High end) and I haven't been able to use very many of the Drugstore products because my skin has had such bad reactions. So, I've had to get more of the high end products and even then I've had some reactions but not as many...and as you know they are so expensive. I've always thought that MAC was just as expensive because the only place I thought you could buy it was at Nordstroms or the internet. So, I'm thrilled!
Oh good, I think I am going to exchange the Studiolights for something with better coverage. Do they have a good concealer? I'm surprised at the how well the Select foundation covers and it has SPF 15 in it. It's very difficult to find a highend foundation with SPF. ya know Oh yes, your right the lipsticks are very neutral colors. Not loud or bright. I like the Dainty Cake Lipstick and the Nymphette Lipglass. Which one did you like the most? It does seem like a fun line.

Laura, I was there yesterday. lol it was mad house in there. But, I didn't get any paints but I will next trip. I thought I had to wait until V day. But, I couldn't. lol
I got Blackberry matte e/s, Harmony Matte blush and Splashproof Lash mascara. Then I went and got Cargo Yukon e/s and Laura Mercier moisturizing foundation (I tried my moms and love it). It's much better than the MAC select and Smashbox Seamless that I was using. What colors do you like best in the paints?
