    Most cliche'd day at MAC ever?

    The only thing missing in my day yesterday was a transvestite. I worked on 2 free makeovers ("um, thanks. i'm not going to buy anything today. i'll be back later..."), had countless Oh Baby! sales, was told what to do by one of my customer's friends, and did makeup on 2 hookers and a drag...

    Does anyone know if there's a rumor (verified or not) about these hitting the Chopping Block anytime in the near future? We haven't gotten shipment of these in awhile, despite being completely out of some of them. And when I mentioned it to my supervisor, she said she had heard they were...

    MAC policy- applying Liquidlast Liners?

    Hi, all. Another question prior to my possible demo interview... How do you apply Liquidlast and remain sanitary? At home, I tried to dab some on my hand and apply it with a different brush, just to play, and it dried so damn fast I couldn't get it to work well. So I'm hoping that's not...

    Hi, my fair friends. Just curious if you have any woes picking blushes? I don't, really, because it's just a matter of intensity of application for me (I'm cool-neutral), but I know some gals seem to have problems being overshadowed by their color choices... Thoughts??? (Editor's note...
