M.A.C. FAFI Cosmetics
So I got one of the best Valentine's Day surprises of my life - a whole stash of the relatively new line from M.A.C. cosmetics known as FAFI FOR M.A.C. Brushes, blushes, eyeliners, shadows, lip sticks, gloss and a black "gel" eyeliner that my hair stylist Helik (at Dop Dop Salon in Soho) had just told me to buy! Oh what is better than good makeup karma?
So the collection is so fun and the colors so vibrant and new - but not cheesy or overwhelming - that I decided I needed to stash it all in a special container. A Dom Perignon box. That way I can celebrate in style each time I put any of it on.
But who the hell is Fafi? Well I may not be keeping up with the kids but apparently she is a French artist who inspired the good people of M.A.C. to create and market a whole new makeup line, mostly for chicks younger than me. But since I am forever 31, I shall rock it my way.
The SVP of product development suggests that the ultimate Fafinette face is "toned-down skin with heavier emphasis on the eyes and a girly mouth. Colorful, but light."
Figures Fafi is French. I really need to get to Paris.
