A trip to the MAC Wonder Woman Pop-up Store

Ok one more and then I'm really going to bed......;p;

So was been dying to get over to the M.A.C. Wonder Woman pop-up store ever since I read about its scheduled opening in Women Wear Daily. I missed the big grand opening but I did get to go last weekend. Ive have been so crazy I haven't had a chance to post about my exciting trip and appointment.

From the moment I walked in the store there was no doubt who the star was.

The makeup display was super cute(my new fav line).

Even the walls we decorated with mock comic covers.

Just another cool display

I wish I had gotten a bag but I will next trip.

This was the cover of the look book.

Of course this is the look I picked!



 
I purposely went with no makeup so I could maybe get an appointment. Figured they would be super busy but it was worth a try. I was really lucky I didn't have to walk around the rest of the day like this....lol

With just a few products...

Moises Ramirez really hooked me up. I felt like Lynda Carter's little sister when i left out of there....lol 

As I left the store I turned around and took one last look. Feeling a little connection to my childhood and feeling like I could leap a tall building in a single bound....lol

Still in awe over the amazing job Moises did. But as soon as he said he was a painter I knew I was great hands. 

I had to buy something...lol

The packaging is very well done.

This compact is my favorite out of all the items in the Wonder Woman collection. Only bad thing is there is no mirror :(

Gotta have a lip glass!

Everything is super sized!!

and the detail on the packaging was my favorite part.


Make sure you stop in the M.A.C. Store on 109 Spring Street between Mercer and Greene Street and make an appointment with the amazing Moises.

Flagship Nars Store Open!

I am so sleepy but had to put this post up really quick about my trip to the Nars Store today. They had a soft opened February 1, 2011 and the Grand opening is set for sometime next week. Luckily I saw an article in WWD that mention it was open and since I had a little time today I made it a point to stop by.


Love this in the store window!!


Very sleek and clean design.

Makeup application is free!! "We love doing makeup" it what I was told byt the store manager when I asked. How awesome is that!

Love the color range and the moisture in the lip color.

The eye shadows are so pigmented and the texture is amazing

I feel like I have to have all of these for the summer...lol

Loved all the blushes!!! But the Taj Mahal is on my list of things to get!
,

I thought I had taken a picture of this super cute bento box set that features highly pigmented lipstick hand-poured into two of the cutest little Kabuki cups and separate little compartments for other little treasures you want to store away. The handmade box has a sleek design and it also comes with a lip brush. The set is $125  they will only have 100 of the sets available. But since I didn't take a picture you just have to go by and check it out.

Stop by and see the Store Manager Pierette Huttner-Harvey, she is really sweet and very helpful.

With my purchase I got this limited edition bag.

Nars does have a professional artist discount but you can not apply for it in the store just yet. As soon as they do I will let you know. Since I don't have the discount yet I only made a small purchase.

"The Multiple" in ST. BARTS....cant wait to wear it. Eyes, Cheeks and Lips!!


Got some samples too!! :)

So don't for get to check it out. You'll love it, I'm sure. NARS Store413 Bleecker Street, New York NY 10014 646-459-2323

#CutiesWithAVision: My Vision Board is Done, how is yours?

So I finally finished my board and hung it up on the back of my door. Here it is....


I used 2 poster boards together



The top one is my professional goals and inspiration.


And the bottom is my personal goals and inspiration.


So this is just one way to do them, it can definitely be more specific and of course it doesn't have to be as busy as this but I really got into it so it kinda turned into a piece of art work too.

How are my #CutiesWithAVision doing??

I want to have an event where we get together and share but doesn't seem to be that much interest so many we'll just continue to share on our blogs. Feel free to let me know what you think and how you are doing on yours.
