Mascara X:

I’m loving ALL of these colors and I can’t wait to play around with them! At first glance, they remind me of old-school MAKE-UP FOREVER. Must-have colors for my make-up baskets!

I received a sample package including Russian Red lippy (seriously, this is the PERFECT red… stop searching and snatch this up asap), Parrot (an awesome teal shadow) and Ochre Style (a brownish gold shimmer shadow – perfect for my love of all things gold), Indigo eye pencil (greenish-blue, would look great paired with the parrot shadow… just not sure how great teal’s gonna look on my brown eyes ?!), and the Mascara X in black!

The Originals Collection hits stores TODAY (December 26) and will be available through January. So take that Christmas money and head on over to a MAC store/ counter near you! These products are staples, people!!! And every beauty whore needs her go-to colors…
