Hello all-

I just got home from the best event that I have ever attended. I went to my first MAC seminar @ Nordstrom and I had the best time. I was a bit anxious about attending because I wasn't sure what the vibe would be like. Let me tell you, everyone that was there was so down to earth and just so freaking nice. There were about 15 people (all girls) and there were all types of ages and styles. The seminar was given by Victor Cembellin who is awesome. To me, he is a cross between Justin Timberlake and Sean Hayes (Jack on Will & Grace). Not looks wise, but he was just so funny and personable. Attached is a picture of him.

The seminar lasted 2.5 hours and I wish it had lasted a lot more. He asked three girls to be his models - one for skin, one for eyes & one for lips. He showed us different techniques and ways to use the different products. He showed us how to use the stick foundation, bronzes, the new duo blushes, and so many more things. I wrote some tips down so I will type them up later and post them. I ended up getting so many things that I felt like it was Christmas. If you ever have an opportunity to attend a MAC seminar, I highly recommend it.

On to the haul:

MAC l/s - Viva Glam V

MAC e/s - Freshwater

MAC e/s - Vapour

MAC e/s - Cork (I got this one for free because I was the only one that knew what MAC stood for. Whoo hoo!!)

MAC e/l - Eye Kohl in Fascinating

MAC Cream Color Base - Hush

MAC eye brush - 224 Tapered Blending Brush

MAC brush - 252 Large Shader Brush

MAC Brush Cleaner

MAC Bulk Wipes

MAC Strobe Cream

MAC Fix +

I also got 5... yes, 5 Viva Glam postcards that included their new spokesmodel Pamela Anderson, Missy Elliot, Christina Aguilera, Linda Evangelista and Chloe Sevigny.

Off to read the rest of the posts as I am coming down from my MAC high...



The two pictures are of my MAC haul and the other is of the MAC senior artist.

Daaaaaaamn Marisol!!! Wow! I think thats all I can say right now... WOW.
Now were those products free? I remember you saying that you had to pay a $50 fee for the seminar & that you get it back in product... was that all from your fee? Seems like a lot of stuff there! LOL I think you'll like the Fix+ spray... its nice... and Can't wait to read your tips!!


Scarlette... she had posted about it earlier... in one of her haul threads -

"I also wondered into Tower Records and bought the new John Legend CD (which so far rocks) and the new Lucky magazine. I was going to go to Michael's but decided to behave. While I was at MAC, I signed up for a MAC seminar on March 31st where Victor C (one of their artist) will be giving a seminar on the spring looks. You have to pay $50 but you get it back in product. I am so excited! Not a shabby Saturday after all."

Nop,e you don't need a pro card at all. Its for customers. Check your local counters and see if they have one coming up.

And hello, that HAUL. Holy cow! You are so funny Laura. It just happened that I was at the MAC counter last week and the MA that I usually talk to told me about it so I signed up. It was so much fun!

After I selected everything that I wanted, they rung up my items and discounted the $50. I think I spent about $200 overall but its worth it.
