Small MAC Haul From CCO & My 100th Post!

Above: My small CCO MAC haul L-R: Polishes in Frilled, Vin Goth and Toast of the Town. Tendertone Lip Balm in Softnote (it's a very sheer gloss with little color and lots of shimmer and shine. I love the texture of these.), Cherry Blossom Lipglass.
Above: Close-up of the polishes. Frilled is a delicate pale pink shimmer with a frosty appearance in the bottle, Vin Goth is filled with tiny sparkles, and the green veining in Toast of the Town is so unique. I think once applied, it'll become more of a duo chrome.
Above: MAC Lipglass in Cherry Blossom (top) and MAC Lipglass in Sweetness (bottom). Below: MAC Lipglass in Sweetness (on left, from the Barbie collection) is one of my favorites and it's almost empty. I love it alone or over other lipsticks and glosses. Of course it's LE (thanks, MAC!) and I keep looking for something to replace it. Cherry Blossom is somewhat similar, a sheer pink (on right), but it still doesn't have the silvery sheen that Sweetness does. The hunt continues!
Below: Claire's polishes were buy one get one half off, so I picked up Rockstar (left) and Magic (right). These are my first Claire's polishes.
Today my my 100th post and I'd like to thank you all for taking the time to read my blog and share your blogs, as well. I so enjoy reading everyone's comments and the friendships I've made through our little blogging neighborhood. I wish I could report that I found the rest of the Wet n' Wild Chrome polishes I posted about yesterday, but I did not find them. I don't have a nail of the day to post today because I actually left the Cobalt on for more than one day. It's so pretty, I don't want to change it yet. Hopefully, I'll come across more of them some day soon. We had fun on our shopping trip yesterday and hit up a Cosmetic Company Outlet store, which is always an adventure. I also found a Claire's that had polishes, as the one in my town doesn't carry any cosmetics. I didn't buy all that much, but I'm most excited about the MAC polish in Toast of the Town. I wish I could transfer the veining you see in the bottle to my nail, but unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Thank you all again for giving me the inspiration to get to 100 posts, now let's see if I can make the next milestone of 500 posts!


  1. Hi Mary! Congrats on the 100th posting. Cheers and confetti to you. I love your blog. Great pictures, excellent writing and information. Plus fantastic giveaways of which I won a collection of polish! Thank you so much for it all. Love the polishes from Mac. I wish a CCO was close to me. It's a 4 and a half hour ride. If you ever come across Peppermint Patti could you please pick me up one? That would be a miracle! Love lipglasses. I didn't have any Mac products last year at this time. Now I have a nice amount. Damn them and their limited editions.

  2. Congrats on the 100th post!

    Don't you hate it when products you love are LE and you're dreading and dreading the day you'll find them EMPTY? It's...so distressing!! Lol.

    Love your haul, especially the colors of the Claire's NPs. :)

  3. try ebay they have alot of le items there!!
    Great haul! xx

  4. Congrats on your 100th post!!(fireworks go off)
    I was just looking at MAC on line yesterday. Ended up not ordering anything for the moment. Nothing really caught my eye. Great haul you've got there! I hate LE make up and nail polish...lol! I'm starting to buy an extra of anything LE,that I might really love using. Call me greedy...haha! Can't wait to see swatches of the MAC polishes.

  5. Congrat's on your 100th! I think mine will be tommorrow lol!, I post to much! Great haul! I'm so glad you got Magic your gonna luv it! I passed up rockstar a couple of times so I can't wait to see what you think of it maybe I do need it! And congrats on the MAC as well I just luv the polishes I've tried from them so far. I Can't wait for the next 400 post, I'm sure they will all be great!

  6. Lucy~thanks so much! I'm very happy that you enjoy my blog. How are you liking your Summer Days, any favorites? I'll be on the lookout for MAC's PP for you.

    Lucia~me too! Can never have too many glosses...or nail polishes...or blush, on and on!

    Chrissy~thanks! I need to stop buying LE's to begin with! I'm curious how I'll like the Claire's nail polish, never having had them before.

    Tali~I guess you're right, I'll have to resort to E-Bay to hopefully find my Sweetness Lipglass.

    Velvet~thank you! Fireworks, ha-ha! I guess you're right, I should just order more than one on certain LE, but usually by the time I've figured out I like them, they're sold out :)

    Kitty~thanks for the congrats! I'll try and get to the Claire's this week and post some pictures. I think I already had 6 MAC polishes and love them all.
