Last weekend I had to drive about 3 hours north for my work’s annual industry trade show, which was in Michigan City, IN. Although I had to spend the weekend up there, the only thing redeeming about the entire weekend was the fact that I was about 30 seconds from the Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets, which is jam-packed full of great stores, including a Cosmetics Company Outlet. I knew that regardless of what my weekend had planned, it was necessary that I stopped over to at least peek in and see what they had, and I’m glad I did!
After getting lost while walking through the outlets (I did stumble across a Bare Escentuals Outlet, but that’s another post!), I finally came to the CCO. They had quite a lot of things to chose from, but I did see two products I had been looking for: MAC’s “Blonde” Mineralize Skinfinish from the Blonde, Brunette, Redhead collection, and MAC’s Mink and Sabel from the Starflash collection. I also picked up MAC’s Idol Eyes as an added bonus!
Idol Eyes is a really pretty color. I don’t have much in silver, so I was excited to pick this up. The thing is, this shadow isn’t exactly silver…it’s more of a silver-meets-lavender-meets-gold-meets-taupe. It really takes on the characteristic of whatever else you pair with it, so it is quite intriguing!
Mink and Sable is one of the “must haves” in my eyes. I love greens and olives, but this one takes on a lot more. It has the ability to pull browns and golds out, as well. This was re-introduced during the Starflash Collection earlier this year, and I just didn’t get around to buying it. Every time I saw someone post this in a FOTD, I would kick myself for not getting it. This is a deep olive green with golden shimmer. It’s not over-the-top sparkly, but it definitely has some frost to it.
