MAC Cosmetics lovers advice on beginner kit?

If you were to put together a beginner kit compromising of only 5 (6 if u really must) items that you believe are absolute musts to try, what would they be?
mine are:
eye shadow in naked lunch and carbon, MSF in what ever color is right for u,the 187 duo fiber brush, and studio fix fluid
bah i mean comprising...compromising lol

Hmm, tricky question. I'd try to pick one product for each feature.

1. Studio Fix (powder or fluid, whichever works better for your skin)
2. Fluidline (also in whichever color works best- I swear by Dipdown!)
3. MSF in a flattering shade.
4. Eyeshadow in Woodwinked.
5. Lipstick in Hue or Myth (whichever one is more flattering).

For mascara, I swear by drugstore stuff. It's not worthwhile to pay $17 for mascara that you'll end up throwing away in 3 months.
For brushes, Sigma has pretty amazing dupes for all the brushes I'd recommend for a beginner, so I'd suggest getting brushes from there. With the money you'd save, you can buy more MAC goodies!

Top 5: Accessible American Luxury Brands

In our exploration of luxury brands, we have identified key trends and debated over industry paradigm shifts. Purveyors of luxury products and services are changing their brand image or re-tooling in another strategic way to adapt in this harsh economic environment. In our findings, accessible luxury is essential in a time when extravagance is taboo. In this week’s top five we will explore accessible luxury brands and how they are adapting and even thriving in this economic environment.

J Crew
To humbly express luxury without the guilt, the media has been aflutter about the Obama’s love for J Crew. Michelle, who has been compared to the fashion-savvy Jackie-O, has undoubtedly stated, J Crew is the luxury brand de jour in recessionary times. The brand is accessible, fashionable and most importantly classic 2.0. Each season brings not radical change, but subtle updates to a timeless look. The brand is positioned between the everyday American GAP and the high-brow fashion of Banana Republic. It’s a perfect place to be for those who want quality beyond the GAP but without the price of Banana Republic.

MAC
Looking good is feeling good. Uplifting personal confidence is what MAC cosmetics is all about. This accessible luxury cosmetics company takes personal expression and empowerment to a new level. The MAC brand has a high enough profile to be the choice of Ed Westwick  and Jessica Szohr of Gossip Girls while on the ground level with everyday Americans (by sponsoring the viral fashion of YouTube how-to-ers).

The MAC brand has an almost rebellious edge that sets it apart from other cosmetics companies. In the past MAC has, just as other cosmetics companies, sponsored fashion week in Bryant Park, NYC. Instead of trying to compete, woo and rub elbows with the hundreds of designers and look better than their competition, they’ve splintered from the pack—hosting their own event, called MAC at Milk (named after the studio in the meat packing district of NYC). MAC at Milk will offer exclusive passes for designers—an attempt to create an underground movement that flies in the face of “big-tent” fashion. Attending designers don’t have to worry about missing presentations or losing each other in the sea of people at Bryant Park. MAC at Milk represents a move to create an edgy, exclusive, yet accessible brand that influencers can buzz about.

Williams Sonoma
Known for their fresh food tastings, high-end gadgetry and quality kitchen basics, William Sonoma is a kitchen connoisseur’s paradise. They entice...

Why You Don't Need the Best Makeup to Hide Fine Lines and Wrinkles

I don't know a thing about you, but I have heard people interested in the health of their skin wonder many times, just what is the best makeup to hide fine lines and wrinkles? The reason is that everyone is at least somewhat self conscious of the lines on their face, and some are desperate to find a solution to eliminating their wrinkles. Until they find the answer they feel that they at least need to find a way to conceal the way that their skin looks.

The problem really lays in the inability of the major cosmetics companies to come up with the answer to the problem of erasing the lines and wrinkles that form on our skin. They simply keep throwing the same products at us year after year, and somehow they trick us into buying these useless products every time. When though will they give us something that we can really use?

There would be absolutely no need for people to seek out the best makeup to hide fine lines and wrinkles if we had products that contained ingredients that would aid the body in increasing the amount of collagen, and elastin it produced. Instead they try to convince us that all that we have to do is rub a little collagen into our skin, and that somehow everything will be better.

The truth is that collagen cannot be absorbed by your skin, so no amount of rubbing with these formulas is going to do any of us any good. Even if they could somehow produce absorbable collagen the amount that you would receive would be so miniscule that you wouldn't even be able to tell that you had used it. External application of collagen is not the answer.

If you want to avoid shopping for the best makeup to hide fine lines and wrinkles then you should consider trying the products that are being produced by a certain company from New Zealand. They were already respected for producing some of the most potent all natural health supplements in the world, and now they have ventured into the world of all natural anti aging skincare products.

What they have developed are a line of products that are focused around two very unique ingredients. Functional Keratin is the main player in these formulas, because of its ability to greatly increase the production rate of you own natural collagen and elastin. The second ingredient is a kelp extract from a variety that is found exclusively in the Sea of Japan.

With the effects that these Functional Keratin and Phytessence Wakame have on your skin there will be no reason to waste your time or money on trying to find the best makeup to hide fine lines and wrinkles. Wakame raises the level of hyaluronic acid that is in your skin. Returning this tissue back to healthy levels will help your fresh collagen and elastin iron your wrinkles right out.

Do yourself a favor, save your money! Who needs the best makeup to hide fine lines and wrinkles when there are products available that will do for you everything that the others can't!
