Mineralize SPF Foundation/Loose Spring 08 MAC

Risser says the Loose MMU is going to have a total of 9 colors. It comes with a sponge on top…hm.. Credit miss_emc @ specktra.net

I’m excited about the mineral foundation line from MAC, mainly because I love BE and am always hoping something better comes along…just for the sake of having it.

I don’t know how I feel about the sponge though.

Swatch of Fafi Quad from JeffreyGirl on Specktra.net!

Jeffreygirl's swatch of the Fafi quad @ Specktra.net

Specktra.net Beauty Blog!

Colors are listed as Vanilla, Hey, Pink Venus, and Howzat…

I admit Vanilla isn’t one of my favorite shadows, and pinks and blues aren’t fantastic on me, but whatever…the quad is gorgeous, and the packaging is fantastic.

Me likey.

More Fafi info from Miss Jeffreys

The Brief
Spring 2008 colors are going to peaches, pinks, terracotta, bronze shimmers, mushrooms, (taupe and brown shades & tones,) indigo (blue) liner & shadow, icy colors (white & pink shimmers, iridescents, metallics, etc,.) and plumbs & purples for eyes & lips.From what I could see MAC is really banging out some new paint pots, lipsticks, shadows and collaborative collections. The MAC for FAFI is going to be sick just because of the packaging. The quad form this collection has to be the biggest I’ve seen come from MAC (although we weren’t that impressed with the colors available by shoot time) and the plum lipstick that comes with it, is not cute at all!! Although there was this pink shimmer lipstick (that looked Heatherette, ‘cept for the packaging.) Laura Mercier has her color story ready for Spring. Lots of luscious powders, shadows, blushes and lippies. Shu is doing for MODE makeup this spring, lots of peach & pink colors coming from them. Of course the drugstore brands were represented, but untouched.

I’m not going to lie, I’m thrilled with the idea of this collection. I think if it compares to its full potential, it’s going to be MAC’s best in a long time. I could be wrong, but I really really hope I’m not.

Specktra’s giving away BATH STUFF!!!

Specktra.net & Baublebath.com have teamed up to offer you this wonderful prize!!!

We all know who much love and energy and time and effort Janice has put into Specktra.net. This year she’s giving back! Follow the link and follow the instructions to win!

About the prize…

Bauble Bath is a small company located in beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Opening in the fall of 2004, Bauble bath has continued to grow with many exciting new products! Though a small home business, our products are not made nor packaged in a home. All of Bauble Bath products are created and packaged in its very own workshop located just feet away from the back door.
We believe soft, well hydrated skin is a must!

As I’m sure you have read over and over, your skin is the largest organ of your body. Keep It healthy by keeping it hydrated, meaning drink loads of water & exercise! Sweating is one of the best ways to clear out your pores.

However, of course, we all need a little extra help now and then. Adding oils to a warm bath and exfoliating your skin are two ways to help loosen dirt and oils on your. So a Bauble and a Body Scrub is a great way to achieve this!

We use food grade when possible, and cosmetic grade where necessary, ingredients in all of our products and keep things as natural as we can while still allowing the products to be fun and interesting!

As far as fragrances, though we do deeply love essential oils, they are not always the best option and cannot allow for some more interesting combinations such as green tea scent – blackberries and strawberries or coconut.

Always, the highest quality fragrances are used and each item is generously scented to make our products a joy to use!

We want you to be happy with your purchase from us! We offer many sample size items for you to try before making any major purchase. Please keep in mind that we do not offer cash refunds but we will do all we can to ensure your happiness. (Unfortunate-but-necessary disclaimer: we do reserve the right to limit or refuse exchanges if we feel our policy is being taken advantage of.)

Questions or concerns may be sent to bauble@baublebath.com

Needless to say, I am super duper jealous of whomever wins, and just want to say…GOOD LUCK AND MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
