MAC: Fafinugen

Fahrvergnugen = the pleasure of driving German

Fafinugen = the pleasure of French face painting

So I cruised by MAC tonight, braving yet another blizzard and 7* weather, to pick up another piece or two from the N collection when I realize I can’t find it anywhere on the counter. I asked someone who was working the counter where it was and was told they had to make room for the new collection, so it was…and they all hunted around until they turned up a poor, little beaker with some sad used samples left. I really only wanted the lipstick, and all they had was N2.

Me: “Ok then, let’s look at the new collection” I said, eyeing the whimsical display they were hard at work assembling. The French graffitti artist Fafi’s art graces the boxes, and a set of 3 makes a complete picture.

Her: “Oh, it doesn’t really launch until tomorrow…we don’t usually put the display out until the actual day, but we needed to get a headstart because this one takes a little more work. Come back tomorrow!”

Me, contemplating yet another drive in crappy blizzard: “Ok, what if you show me the colors to see if I should come back.”

Her: “Just a minute” (runs and checks with supervisor) “Oh, sorry, we can’t even show the colors…”

Me:”Ok…(suspiciously eyeing very cute pink color on her lips)…”Are you cheating and wearing the new color?” (clearly she was)

Her: “Oh! Yes, I am cheating, and, but, oh…”

And I got the full rundown of what was available.

I am highly recommending those Lipglasses!

However, sans camera, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to get your own glimpse, or check out MAC’s website.

Blush Report

“Just had to let you know how much I love your products. My friend gave me your body butter and sugar scrub. I can’t get enough. I am 6 months pregnant and your shea butter is the best belly butter I have ever tried…and I have tried at least 5 other brands. Combined with the sugar scrub, my skin is itch-free and so soft. You must market your shea butter products to pregnant women!! ” – Megan, Los Angeles

Thanks Megan, and congratulations! We have been getting a lot of requests for larger sized butters, and…we were in Stork Magazine last year. Keep your eyes peeled!)

“Honestly, after I tried the samples I didn’t need to be sold by the sales rep. I was just “Give me an order form!”. It works the same way with the customers. As soon as they try your product, they buy. Your product is so wonderful, it is the real deal.” Julie, Glo Salon/Spa

This is How You Do It: Girl Power by Nely Galan

That her team on The Celebrity Apprentice is failing to gain ground on the guys does not make Galan a sore loser. As the rules go, the CA winners would have money go to a group of choice. With a defeat seeming imminent, The producer of The Swan decided to take fate into her own hands and earn a few benjamins for her group of choice by using a backup to her teammates: mass girl power.

Galan had announced she would personally donate $25,000 to her chosen group, Count Me In/Make Mine A Million. This organization empowers entrepreneurs via money and mentors, building a community of winners. To add to her 25k, Galan and Make Mine A Million asked members to pledge $10 each to reach a goal of 250,000.

On the Today Show, it was announced that a total of ***Two-Hundred Thousand Dollars*** was raised! I hope she in no way considers this a shortfall. It is rare to see celebrity pull through for the groups or charities they claim to back, and Galan’s honest and clever efforts showed Trump and the world that women CAN pull the right strategy out of the hat when needed. You’re a beautiful example Ms. Galan!
