RiRi hearts MAC Fall

Yes, I realize the title of this post is moderately ridiculous.

But it's the actual name of the fall color collection that pop mogul Rihanna and MAC Cosmetics released earlier this week.

If you follow MAC at all, you know they crank out new collections and products every few weeks. (Seriously. I get "new release" text messages from them, and I get them often.)

While I'm not much of a Rihanna fan, the seasonal colors - for eyes especially - appear to be universally flattering.

As the case often is with these limited-edition MAC lines, you've got to strike fast.

MAC emailed RiRi's release around noon Monday and by 6 p.m. Tuesday, one of the two eye quads, one type of false lashes and the duo fiber face brush had already sold out online.

But if you're really smitten, it's worth checking with the area MAC counters and stores.

MAC SouthPark: 704-365-6611
Belk Central Carolina Place: 704-543-9888

It's been my experience (Christmas 2005's mint green, liquid glitter eyeliner) that some items no longer available online, blessedly, aren't a hit in the local market.

So if you're on the hunt, good luck!
