MAC Lovers, great news is coming your way. This summer you can get your favorite MAC products at Ulta.
MAC Cosmetics realized that it is not always easy for brand lovers to go get the products and they also heard customer requests to place it in Ulta Beauty Stores.
“This is a great opportunity to bring M.A.C. on stream to a whole new audience,” Karen Buglisi Weiler, M.A.C. global brand president, told WWD. “In my mind, there’s maybe a customer who shops at Ulta, but has never walked into a M.A.C. store. Maybe she’s never walked into a Nordstrom to purchase M.A.C. or maybe she’s never walked into a Macy’s.”
Ulta.com will have MAC Products available in May and customers will start seeing MAC in Ulta Stores mid-June.

If you ever wondered what Marge Simpson‘s beauty bag looked like then this new MAC Cosmetics collection is perfect for you. MAC Cosmetics is celebrating The Simpsons 25th anniversary by creating a 10 item collection in honor of the famous cartoon mom. The collection is a playful line that gives some fun colorful ideas to add into your kit. The 10 items include: two 4 piece eyeshadow palettes, blush, lipglass and false lashes. The colors are in shades of pink, purple, black and of course blue like her famous beehive hair with names like: Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy, Nacho Cheese Explosion and That Trillion Dollar Look.

While you may not want to have a complete Marge makeover, one suggestion would be to add one of the fun colors to your look for a pop of fun color. As well as using a Marge Simpson lipglass shade on top of your neutral lip pencil to create a new color.
Those that attended Comic-Con in San Diego this past were the first to preview the makeup line before it hits the stores. The lines outside the MAC store were wrapped around the block, proving that this iconic character may not be Marilyn Monroe, or Barbie, but she has a huge following all her own. The attendees also were able to get Marge makeovers and see the Marge models, come to life as their favorite animated character.
The Marge Simpson makeup collection is available online on and in stores on September 4. It is a limited edition collection and will sell out fast both online and in stores.

As a professional makeup artist, we carry a lot of products around with us. The clients see us coming with our big wheelie’s full of goodies and products that help with all of our beauty tricks. I am constantly trying to get my kit to be efficient as I fly with it as a carry on, no way is this girl going to check a bag and worry the entire flight, that I will arrive for the job without a bag of goodies.
I came across Z Palette at a trade show and thought this could be something in my quest for less containers. Of everything my eye shadows are taking over, tons of MAC containers. Z Palette is a customizable makeup palette that is magnetized on the bottom of the rectangular container and a clear window on top. You can take apart your makeup containers, de-pot, and then put them into a palette. There are several sizes and of course styles, I went for the leopard print.
I took home my palette’s and went to work on depotting and mixing the brands of products to make neat palettes. The powders were very exciting as now I have all of the shades in one easy palette and when I am on a job, no more individual containers. However, even better is the eye shadow’s. I was able to place 20 eye shadows both circular and square in one palette. First goal met, less containers and more efficient.
The second and final test, going thru TSA from Miami to DC roundtrip with my cosmetic wheelie and Z palette’s in tow. Placed them in the container and thru they went with not one question. I really am a huge fan and purchased a small one for my personal makeup, easy to put in a purse.
If you have not heard of them, you should definitely give it a look, I think that you will find it can de-clutter your makeup bag.
