MAC Makes it all Better

Two weekends ago I got my ass kicked at my softball game. Basically I tried to steal home on someone three times my size and she decided to literally tackle me. Not pleasant. Now I have been suffering with a knee that is extremely skinned and swollen. I actually go to the doctor today, finally.

So what can make me feel better about my ugly knee? Buying some makeup to doll myself up with!

I finally purchased some MAC Hello Kitty items. I wound up getting the Hello Kitty Lipglass in Sweet Strawberry and Glitter Eye Liner in Her Glitz. Both of these items are from the Hello Kitty Mild Collection. The gloss cost $14 and the liner $16.50.

Additionally, I got some Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation that does a great job of hiding any skin imperfections.

I had a great saleswoman who gave me samples of Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50 and Oil Control Lotion. The Prep + Prime works to leave the skin looking smooth, preventing that "caked on" look that you sometimes get with face makeup. 

I especially love that the eye liner isn't too dramatic. I love glitter, but not always for work. These pics aren't that great, but I am wearing the liner and the lipgloss in these photos. The gloss does look pretty dark so I try to put only a bit on for a more subdued look.

Hope you can still get an idea of the look that the makeup provides.

Have you purchased any of the items from the Hello Kitty Collection? If so, what did you get and how do you like it?

I LOVE the glitter eyeliner!! Very pretty! I actually purchased The Hello Kity Eyeshadow kit in Lucky Tom. I really like the diversity of the different shades. I wear the peach and beige for daytime, and the purple and black for night! I hope your knee get's better!!!

Aw sorry to hear about the softball game and ur knee.
I haven't purchased any MAC items lately. I want to though but strangely I am not gaga for the hello kitty collection. I feel like I'm the only one, since I know everyone seems to love it! :)

Ouchhhh that looks painful, I hope you get better soon! The Prep & Prime thing sounds amazing, I bought Bobbi Brown foundation and it tends to look a little caked on towards the end of the day, not attractive

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I especially love that gloss. Believe it or not, I haven't caved on Kitty yet ... where have I been hiding - I know.

Feel better, knee!

Man, that looks painful! Hope your knee feels better soon.

I tend to stay away from anything too glittery when it comes to makeup but this is pretty and subtle.

Also, just to let you know, I'm having a blog contest and the prize is a Rachel Leigh Sex and the City-inspired studded belt. Hope you'll check it out!
