Your First Look: M·A·C's RUSH METAL.


Rush to the M·A·C counter today. Rush Metal just debuted, and you are going to want to check these shimmery metallic hues.


I love this for the ultimate summer bronze look.  In the picture I paired the pigment in Rushmetal, and the lipstick in Frenzy, along with the essential eye shader brush 239. I can't wait to have more time to play.

The Rush Metal collection includes four lipsticks and eight pigments.
Lipstick $14.00
Thrills - Rosy copper with gold pearl
Frenzy - Soft muted pinky-peach beige with golden shimmer
Soft Lust - Tan with white pearl
Fast Lane - Mauve with silver pearl
Pigment $19.50
Rushmetal - Rich copper sparkle
Revved-Up Icy rose with reflects
Gold Mode - Tan Gold
Mauvement - Cool taupe with gold pearl
Off The Radar Warm orange with gold sparkle
Copperized Olive green with gold pearl
Quick Frost - Creamy white with soft green pearl
Cocomotion - Dirty gold with olive undertone and gold sparkle 

Oh, how I love using pigment. They are so fun to play with. I love to make my own lipglass out of them with the clear lipglass. The possibilities of using pigments are really endless. You just can't be afraid to play with them, and use your imagination.  Shadow, liner, highlighter, gloss, on your nails, in your hair. And these colors do not disappoint.

Rush Metal is available on M·A·C counters and online now. And stay tuned for information on the new Flashtronic line tomorrow.

Beautiful Makeup Search on NBC's The Today Show.

It is an exciting day for us at Beautiful Makeup Search - we were featured in a beauty segment on NBC's The Today Show. We are so happy and proud of our little baby.


The six minute segment was about our nations obsession with beauty products, and how much we spend on them each year. Madeline Johnson, a beauty publicist of more than 20 years, is shown talking about beauty being such a big business. Then the reporter, Janice Lieberman points out that consumers do not shop for beauty products in the same way that they did before. Then they highlighted Beautiful Makeup Search and a few other beauty blogs, including Beauty Addict and Beautynomics that consumers go to before investing in their latest beauty purchases.
