How to get Mac Free Standard Delivery

Hi there everyone,

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend and a very warm welcome to my new followers.

In case you don't know, if you go on and use the EMAIL AN ARTIST option on the bottom left hand site of the home page, ask them anything you would like advice on and when they reply by email to you, at the bottom of the email there will be an option to click on a link to complete a short survey and get free standard delivery for doing so.

When I say short I mean it, talking seconds here, approx six clicks, your choice to type in more details if you like.  I just added that I would like them to make it easier for non pro Mac customers to purchase pro products.  I left quite a detailed but polite message.  Just makes good business sense to me, happy customers and more sales!  What's not to like!?!

As soon as you finish the survery your free delivery code comes up, make sure to note it down and the expiration date, usually valid for 3 months.

These codes come in really handy when I want to get hold of the pro pan blush and/or eyeshadow refills, which I can't get at my nearest counter.

Hope this comes in handy for you all.

Wrap up warm and hope you have fun whatever your plans for the weekend.

Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Serum freebie

Hello my lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well, please feel free to let me know how things are with you and of any products you would recommend.  I'd love to get to know you all better, anywho back to the business at hand...

Fancy a free sample of the above?  If you do you can get one via the Boots website, click here, I've already requested mine. 

This product has105 reviews on the Boots website and a 5 star rating, sounds pretty darn good, but there isn't a list of ingredients on this website, I'll have to go direct to Olay I guess for that or hopefully it'll be on the sample.

If you decide to post a review of the product on the Boots website you will go into a prize draw to with a Spa day for you and two friends.

Oh how I do love! :-)

Mac & Mickey Contractor Collection 2011

I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing more about this collection.  It is a collaboration between Mac and Mickey Contractor who is Macs Director of Makeup Artistry for India, a very well renowned MUA to the stars including the very beautiful Aishwayra Rai!


The international and US launch date is 6th January 2011.

Here are the details of the collection;


Yash - Deep neutral (Matte) (Limited Edition)
Gulabi - Bright fuchsia (Amplified) (Limited Edition)
Mehr - Mid-tone blue pink (Matte) (Limited Edition)

Moisturecover Concealer
NC23, NC43, NC44, NC45.5 (Limited Edition)

Moisturecover Double-End Concealer
Coral Corrector/Yellow Corrector (Limited Edition)

The blushes sound suspiciouly like Nars Albatross and Douceur, curious, very curious...we shall see.  I'm also very interested to see what Saffron eyeshadow will look like.

The foundations and concealers also have caught my eye, I have been matched to NC44 but never owned it so would be interested to see if I would match one of the other shades, would be a shame as they're limited edition!

I'm very interested to see what this collection looks like, and if it is one that will be well suited to people of colour and I say that because the foundation and concealer shades are all around my skin tone range :-) 

I'll be waiting for Christine from Temptalia or Karlasugar to post on their blogs/YT channels as they seem to get a look at everything in advance and get us all even more excited for new collections.

Gotta get past this frenzy of holiday collections first!  Tomorrow for me will be Tartan Tale, if you follow my YT channel, I'll do a video on whatever I decide and manage to get as well as a blog post.  Decided to get it in person rather than order online this morning as then I'd have to wait for delivery (no patience!) and risk them saying stock is gone after I've place the order, no chance.  My counter said it'll be put on display tomorrow morning and I'll be able to go first thing. 

It's so hard to see the products all over YT as we always get collections released a little later over here in the UK, grrr but in a way I get to see some reviews and swatches first so can make a more informed choice about what might interest me enough to part with some moolah, so there is my silver lining I guess!
