Sorry for the late notice on this, but I thought all of my fellow Philly gals should know about a fun MAC event going down this Friday and Saturday at the Willow Grove Bloomingdale’s.
On Friday, February 12 from noon-8pm and Saturday, February 13 from noon-8pm, my favorite MAC counter is hosting a Spring Colour Forecast event, inspired by MAC’s new collection.
