Pretty much all of MAC’s limited edition collections require some stealth and lack of sleep. But the Osbournes release? Man! That required a rabbit foot, constant refreshing and lots of prayer. It was really crazy! I wasn’t surprised at all when I saw just how many people missed out on the beautiful Dodgy Girl. I was able to get my hands on one but I really wanted 2. You know, for a backup.

Eventually, I settled upon the popular Sleek Contour Kit (which I love) but I wanted to try something a little softer for everyday use. I noticed a lot of ladies around my complexion obsessing over MAC Blunt Blush but it looked so light in the pan that I held off on trying it. Thank goodness I gave it a go anyway!

I was thinking of sharing a lipstick shaped cake with you guys but I thought it might be a little easier (and less messy) to just share some of my current fave lipsticks instead. Check it out!
