MAC Bloggers' Obsessions Collection Series Part 1: Bloggers' Obsessions Color Story

Ahhhh, I can finally share with you guys the good news! Last January, I was invited by MAC Cosmetics to submit a creative concept for an eyeshadow and/or a lipglass for an upcoming MAC Bloggers' Collection. I don't know how many bloggers were invited to participate in this project, but I was glad to have been chosen as one of the entrants. We were asked to fill out the submission form outlining shade concepts for the eye and lip products. In addition, we were also encouraged to submit images/collages to accompany the submission form to further depict the inspiration for the shades.

I submitted my lipglass and eye shadow creative concepts and in late March, I was informed by MAC Cosmetics that my lipglass shade was chosen as part of the MAC Bloggers' Obsession Collection! I was over the moon with excitement. I have always liked MAC Cosmetics and a MAC customer since 2001, but never in my wildest dreams did I think that one day I would be able to create my own MAC lipglass shade.

The other bloggers who are part of this amazing collection are Amber, Christine, Ellen, Karen, Lianne, Lily, Patrice, Wendy.
