EMPTY

Alas, my all time favorite lipstick has run out (well, not completely, I'm still using what's left of it out of desperation). The shade is "Gladiola" from the Dame Edna for M.A.C Cosmetics Winter 2008 collection and I first bought it back in January '09. I was then forced to repurchase it after my dog tragically mauled my first one; I franctically called all the M.A.C counters in Winnipeg before I found one left in the entire city. I then drove about an hour out of my way to get the little tube of lipstick, but it was totally worth it as I wore it almost every day. But now my dear Gladiola is in its final days...RIP.

*Sigh*, the things we do for beauty right? I may have to repurchase it on eBay off something...

P.S: I needed a change and made a new blog header! Thoughts?

  2. Chip: Isn't MAC animal free? They use fatty acids from alcohol instead of animal fat.

    Oh gosh, I feel your pain :( I lost my brand new "Girl About Town" and have still yet to re-purchase it.

    Love the new header! And your hair looks great like that.

    i totally agree with you on the things we do for beauty. i've made a special trip to a shopping mall that is about an hr away from where i live just to get a pair of wedges that was only available there. but hey, it makes us happy at the end of the day so why not! (:

  15. this reminds me of my quickly dwindling supply of "girl about town" by M.A.C.... i am seriously devoted to that color. its amazing the connection you get with a piece of makeup over time.

  18. go onto prescriptive's website or whatever and i think they do a custom colour match. send them a swatch of your favourite shade and they will remake it for you. it's slightly expensive but its good if youre desperate.
