In addition to my love of all things lacquer, as an overall beauty junkie, I’m also a gushing fan of MAC. A good pal dragged me to a MAC counter a few years back and I’ve been hooked ever since. My collection doesn’t even compare to some of the hardcore fanatics on Specktra but that doesn’t make me any less smitten. So when I heard that MAC was releasing the Originals collection I was overjoyed. I don’t own the coveted Parrot eyeshadow so now is my chance (the collection hits stores today!). Of course I wish they would have included some lacquers in the collection but I’ll survive. Anywho, MAC is launching the “Are You A MAC Original?” contest and I wanted to share the deets.
