As much as I adore MAC Cosmetics (y’all know I do), I’ve always been a little meh about their mascaras. So when the company sent me a sample of their new Haute & Naughty Lash, the package actually sat around for weeks before I tried it.
When I finally got around to reviewing it, I wanted to smack myself upside the head for waiting so long – and for doubting the makeup masterminds at MAC.
Haute &Naughty Lash lets your lashes lead a double life, thanks to a two-in-one dual wiper system. For natural, genetically blessed look, use the wand with the pink end. For doe-eyed, dramatic fringe, use the wand with the pink and disco purple end. The hydrating formula prevents flaking and comes off easily with eye makeup remover.
Peep these photos and see for yourself how Haute & Naughty transformed my lashes from blah to bladow!
Before: nekkid lashes looking a bit bald
After: Haute & Naughty lashes
Haute & Naughty Lash is currently available at nordstrom.com and maccosmetics.com. In September 2010, it will be sold at all MAC stores and counters. MAC products have a way of selling out, so if I were you, I’d get this mascara while it’s haute!

Sorry I’ve been away so long. It pains me that I have neglected my baby, Spoiled Pretty, for so long. But as many of you know, I have a new baby that I’m preparing for. And his due date is approaching more quickly than I could have anticipated, so I’ve got a lot on my plate right now.
I’m going to do my best to keep this blog up to date. But if I fall off the writing wagon for a few days, try not to hold it against me…and stop back in a day or two for more reviews, news and giveaways.
I don’t know what it is. But no matter how hot my nails are looking, I always have nail envy…especially when it comes to my colleague/next door office neighbor, Angela. Every other week, she shows up wearing some super hot color that gives my mani an inferiority complex.
Right now, I’m totally crushing on this grape shade (crushing – get it?) – from OPI‘s Shrek collection.
