MAC Stereo Rose: WINNER!

Hey Guys!

I’m pleased to announce the winner of the ‘nature inspired’ contest. I asked you guys to create a makeup look based on nature. I needed to know what you used and why you used it. Well, Miss Amber did just that… and won the contest!

This is Amber:

Amber was inspired by fall leaves…
The eyes represent the leaves turning from green to gold, and the lips represent the change from Summer to Autumn.

“For this look I used MAC Blacktrack Fluidline to line my eyes, and used MAC Greasepaint Stick to create a cat eye wing at the outer edge. On my lips I used Stila Watermelon Lip Glaze, on my cheeks a light dusting of Milani Luminous Blush (a dupe of NARS Orgasm at a fraction of the cost). I topped the eyes off with MAC Plush Lash Mascara, and I created the shadow look of green/gold with the Milani Eyeshadow Quad in Autumn Earth.”
Thank you Amber for your entry, and congratulations on the win! Your MAC Stereo Rose was mailed today (Saturday, October 30th). You should receive it next week! Congrats again!

Contest & Giveaway… MAC Stereo Rose! (CLOSED)

Okay, I heard that women broke down and shed TEARS when MAC’s Stereo Rose came and went in just hours. The repromote was part of the In The Groove collection released a few months ago.

It’s a gorgeous coral  based shimmer… it goes peachy/coral on fair skin and golden on brown skin. It’s flattering on just about everyone, whether you wear it as a blush or a highlight.


I thought I’d give away a brand new Stereo Rose MSF… never tested, swatched or used in any way. I did take it out of the box for the pictures.

I’d like to see your best ‘nature inspired’ face. It doesn’t have to be complicated or over the top… just ‘inspired’ in some way, by your favorite thing in nature. Whether it’s butterflies or a lizard or even a goldfish… I just want to see what in nature moves you, and how you interpret it with makeup.
You have to send me a picture of your finished look, along with a description of what you used. One picture per entry please (so choose your best one!).
