Fun Interrupted

Hello-Hello! We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

Remember us nattering on Friday about all the fun activities we had planned for the day? We were going to scamper off to The Big City to do this….


And a little bit of this….

And then go see this….

But none of that happened because we spent the last three days doing this.

And we will be returning there shortly.  Frankly, it all rather has us feeling like this:

(We want to be utterly self-indulgent and let out one big waaaaaaahhhhhhhh! but proper decorum would forbid such conduct.)


In an effort to retain some sense of self-worth, to feel we have something of value to contribute (this is of value?!) , we have scraped together a few of the just-released photos from the upcoming Lilly Pulitzer and MAC cosmetics collaboration, MAC in Lillyland.

The group includes four Lip Gelees, all Limited Editions, all $14. From the left:

  • Lush and Bright (bright pink/yellow coral with pink pearlized pigments)
  • Preppy (blue pink with pink pearlized pigments)
  • Shift to Pink (light violet with silver pearlized pigments)
  • Resort Life (off white with pink pearlized pigments)

Four colors in MAC’s Cremeblend Blush formula round out the mix:


These will run $18.50; like all the other items (perhaps excluding the brushes), these are limited editions.


The Nail Lacquers: Hot n Steamy Pink is on the left, Coconut Ice Light on the right, both are MAC’s cream formula. Additionally they are limited editions and will run $12.

As mentioned, there are brushes included with this Collection, they are not limited editions.

And there are two Technakohl Liners designated as part of the Collection, in Graph Black and Purple Rose, but these are permanent items for the MAC line and currently available for sale. Pop over and visit the good folks at both Temptalia and Butterfly Diary for more on the Collection.

Many thanks to everyone for all of your kind emails, Tweets, and messages – we really appreciate the way they make us feel much more like this:

We hope things return to a more normal routine tomorrow. Until then, smiles to everyone!

    In the words of Rachel Zoe ‘I die’. Two of my favorite product lines colaborating. Can’t believe I missed the launch. Could have something to do with unsubscribing to websites to free up space on my PC.
    So sorry to hear that you missed your fun weekend with the sickies. There seems to be a lot of that going around.

  9. I hope you are feeling better soon!

    I so love MAC – now I am craving a trip to their store!
