I was like, "Why Are You So Obsessed With Me?" (MAC "Bloggers Obsessions")

**CORRECTION** I had previously mixed the two names of the lip glosses I purchased (now corrected).  Thanks to the beautiful, talented blogger, Aileen de Los Angeles -Theshadesofu- for pointing out my mistake!:) FYI: Aileen is the mastermind behind the goooorgeous Sonoran Rain gloss;)

I am over it now.  I'll admit that before I was a tad jealous of the lucky bloggers who were able to visit the MAC Cosmetics laboratories AND create their own eyeshadows/lip glosses;).   Now that I've tried some of their creations and seen firsthand how BEAUTIFUL they are, all is forgiven!:) LOL

The limited edition eyeshadows/glosses are available online for $14.50 each.  I purchased:

Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow (a "teal-jade" color with a nice balance of pigment and sparkle; unfortunately for some, this is now sold out:( )

Nitro:licious 2046  lip gloss (a creamy, yet slightly translucent red...although the name is a bit awkward, the color is beautiful!)

Sonoran Rain lip gloss (this color reminds me of the pinkish-red part of a peach, with lots of gold flecks)

Swatches after the break...

Left: Nitro:licious 2046, Right: Sonoran Rain


  1. very nice..the colors look very vibrant :-)

  2. Thanks for reading! Yeah, they are pretty bold and they are pretty unique compared to the rest of my collection.

  3. Thank you for the post, I am glad you liked the products from the collection! However, I believe you have switched Nitro:licious 2046 and Sonoran Rain. Sonoran Rain is the one with gold shimer, and Nitro is the darker, blue-based red jelly. :)

  4. @theshades: Thanks for the correction!!!! Please forgive my error made in haste;) Also, thanks for stopping by and for lending us your creative talents in Sonoran Rain!
