I don’t usually enjoy knowing what I’m getting for my birthday. But I think I’ll be able to find it in my heart to forgive MAC for opening its lipglass lacquered trap a few months early.
Turns out that the highly-anticipated Style Black collection will be released on my birthday. What makes this such a treat is that the collection will resurrect my favorite scrub of all time…like a phoenix rising from the ashes!
Since last spring’s limited edition Future Earth collection, I’ve been rationing my Volcanic Ash Exfoliator like it was a bag of beans on a season of Survivor. With no idea that MAC had intentions of bringing this beauty gem back from the dead, I’ve been reserving this primorial soup-esque scrub for special occasions. But now that I know I can stock up come September (you’ve never seen hoarding like the kind I’m gonna do this fall), I’m gonna indulge in a little Volcanic Ash scrub-a-dub on a weekly basis.
Mark your calendars for September 24th, when these babies hit real and virtual shelves. Take it from me…you definitely don’t wanna play the ‘shoulda woulda coulda’ game with this holy grail scrub.
