Color that Lasts and Lasts and Lasts

For anyone who's wondering.....I'm a MAC makeup junky. There are few things I love and truly indulge in, well other than good food, and that's a whole nother subject, but the one thing I have a hard time resisting is new colors to add to my MAC collection. I have been building it for years and I proudly display it whenever someone says, "Your makeup looks great!" Well everyone in the house knows that my MAC is the one thing you don't touch, just like everyone knows if you wanna send my husband over the edge, drink the last swallow of Coke......and yesterday the twins dared to touch my MAC lip colors. Not only did they touch them but they too decided indulging in my MAC makeup was the thing to do. I had properly laid them down for nap (thanks for the advice from the moms on overcoming bedtime/naptime drama). I have been following the instructions given to me by pros, I checked on them. They appeared to be sleep so I decided to retire to the couch for a little nappy nap myself. I awoke to 2 sticky, greasy, colorful little monsters. Sarah and Drew decided to paint one another with MY lip color. They stripped down to undies and pull-ups and carefully painted one another on the back, stomach, legs, head, face.....and the list goes on. They touched EVERY lip color I had, whether it was lipstick or the wonderful gooey lipglass that I Love so dearly. After coming out of shock, I took them to the shower and began to scrub, and scrub, and scrub, and after more than enough effort and time they were still sticky, greasy, and slightly colorful. One of the reasons I love MAC colors is because they last, and last, and last. Even this morning the twins skin looks so shiny and moisturized. Actually the lipglass appears to be working much better than the many lotions I have tried on their dry skin. I just caught a glimpse of little Drew running through the room, with his chest shining like one of the guys in a Tyler Perry play, shirtless of course (only because he is following the example of my teen-age son who thinks his little muscles are growing bigger everyday). I guess I will just have to start over with new colors.....and to anyone wondering where to start to let me know just how much you love me on my birthday, the MAC store is a great place to start!

  8. NO!!! Bare Escentuals is my drug of choice, and my little one knows that there will be severe punishments if any jars suddenly go missing!

  9. It's funny and then it's not...lol! Funny in that they decided to go all wild and paint each other and sad that it was your makeup they did it with.
    My 2 decided to one day paint with the fingernail polish all over themselves and the floors and walls.

  10. LOL! I think MAC should send you a free replacement or two after such fabulous and free PR. I am grabbing some lipglass ASAP.

    P.S: today is the last call for my giveaway. It isn't MAC but it is good chocolate therapy for these kind of mommy moments ;)

  11. Oh yikes, I'm such a clean freak that I totally worry about a moment like that with my toddler! Hopefully you took some incriminating pictures to use when the kids get older. :)

  12. They were just performing a little product test on your behalf. Hope you get some new MAC love soon!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hmm... Lipgloss Moisturizer.... I'll have to keep that in mind lol...

    When I was 3 I took my mothers make up and "prettied" myself and her comforter up... only, mama didn't use lipgloss... she used real deal RED lipstick apparently-- lol Im sure she wanted to throw me out a window, but those pics are by far my favorites. lol

  14. Although I am sure it wasn't at the time that is pretty funny.

  15. Oh my! That brings me back to my childhood, when I did the same thing with my mom's makeup! :0)

  16. What a funny story! I think I would have gone ballistic, I guess having six kids has simmered you down a little bit! I just wish you had pictures to share!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That is HILARIOUS!! Did you get pictures?!?!?
    Happy SITS day!

    ReplyDelete
  22. This makes me want to lock up my makeup collection to keep it away from the hands of my little one!

    Happy SITS day!

  23. awesome. everyone needs shiny, colorful kids. also. now i'm scared for my sephora makeup.

    ReplyDelete
  24. they DID NOT touch your MAC! i'm telling you, i have me some MAC makeup love too and there's some serious time out for messing with my MAC. you and me can DEF be friends!

    ReplyDelete
  25. OH no! One of those moments where you're really mad but you probably had to hold back some laughter as well!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The same thing happened with colored markers in my house. Guess what? My kids weren't shiny, more striped. And guess what? It didn't come off for daaaays.

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOL My boys hate wearing shirts...my youngest would be in my makeup if he knew about it. But he loves markers, as I have several pics to attest to that.:)LOL

    ReplyDelete
  28. Dude. What is it with boys? They are into EVERYTHING!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh....how I wish you had pictures! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  30. I feel your pain. My makeup has adorned my daughter's body and my hallway walls. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. ooo... i totally second that pictures idea. i wish there was evidence. that's too funny. and not all at the same time. i love makeup in general but I have a ton of MAC stuff and the thought of it being destroyed makes me sad.

    also, unrelated (sort of) have you tried baby oil gel? i recently started using this on my very dry skin and it seems to be working after a couple of weeks of constant use, along with lotion. it especially helps with the cracked knuckles.

    anyway, hilarious post. God bless MAC and it's staying power. lol

  32. Well at least they took their clothes off! Oh I can't even imagine the mess...well actually I can.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, that makes me want to try the lipglass! It always amazes me what kind of mischief kids can find.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh, that sounds so funny. Would have loved to see pictures! Kids are just trouble makers sometimes. Gotta love 'em! Stopping by from SITS & hope you've been enjoying your day in the spotlight!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Pictures, we need pictures! Reminds me of a friend of mine w/5 year old twins. They got into a 20 lb bin of flour in her kitchen "Look Mommy, it's snowing!"

    ReplyDelete
  36. Not the MAC! I'm a fellow MAC addict as well. Love the palette's. Could not imagine that happening.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh my! While I am not a MAC lover, I do have my favorite makeup brand and I don't know whether I would be as calm as you appear to be.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh my gosh I would've freaked out, I think pictures are most definitely in order. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would have freaked out. How long did it take to come off completely?
