Gulf Coast Waters

First of all ... a disclaimer. For all of you that follow this blog because you are used to seeing me do BE stuff, I am sorry that I have been all MAC this week. Please don't go away ... I just have lots of new MAC goodies that I have been dying to play with. I swear I am not abandoning BE!

That said ... on to today's look! If you have never been to the Texas Gulf Coast and are planning on making it, don't be looking for blue waters. They are GREEN! That and the names of a few of today's colours is what led to the title of this look.

Oh ... and can you tell that I am completely loving MAC Grand Entrance from the Starflash collection??? It is a fabulous highlighter that works perfectly for my skin and goes great with everything (like BE's Queen Phyllis) ... if you don't have it and you use MAC stuff ... GET IT (Aileen ... that means you!)

  1. OMG, I LOVE that lippie!!!
    *Hits head on desk, I don't NEED anymore... just yet!*
    Hopefully the STL store still has CoC l/g and then I can pick it and this lippie up with my B2M if they will take the empty pots!

    I love seeing the MAC, but you know me... :o)

    PS> I did order Grand Entrance with my Manish order! ;o)

  2. Great face, Erin! All the colors are gorgeous.

  3. Thanks guys!

    The funny thing about this particular lip colour is that it is one that I wasn't planning on getting when I was just eyeing the collection ... I just got it because I didn't end up loving a few of the others as much as I had thought I would. Now it is my fave cremesheen ... just a great colour!

    Get it Lindsay! you NEEEEDDDD it!


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
