Will MAC get Malificent?

MAC has finally confirmed the much anticipated Disney Collab with a Disney Villans collection.
Rumor has been circulating since the MAC and Disney toons collection, that there will be a follow-up. I feel like this is a SNL Betty White moment, as and you shall receive right? After years of asking..volia!
I really want a deep berry red for Malificent and a black-purple for Ursula.
What are your predictions for this collection?

UPDATE: Teaser video! http://www.maccosmetics.com/vv_landing/index.tmpl

Did anyone spot Cruella?

YSL Gloss Pur Hibiscus #9 is Pur Heaven

YSL's Gloss Pur Hibiscus #4 is my favorite lipcolor of the moment! This fuchsia toned hue is complemented by a touch of lavender and is just a sliver of YSL's offering for the Solaris Summer 2010 collection.
This gloss contains no shimmer or glitter so coverage is very smooth, opaque and highly pigmented . And in YSL lippie fashion- there is a hint of rose scent.
If you want a punch of color this summer, YSL's Gloss pur's might just be it. They offer more pigmentation than other Summer 2010 collection glosses.
YSL's Summer 2010 Solaris collection debuts Summer 2010. Check your counter ( got this one at Macy's in Herald Square) or check out Sephora.

Topshop makeup update 1.0

Topshop Makeup debuted today at the Soho New York store and I had to run down and check it out. The core line features edgy colors and an expansive amount of lip products ranging from balm to lip crayons. For eyes there were Eyeshadow duo's, pencils and mascara. What the whole line lacked was face products- there were three shades of Skintint, two liquid highlighters and a few creme blushes, which were very bold colors but still kinda meek compared to the lip selection.
What impressed me the most were the Nail varnishes. They had a host of great pastels very reminiscent of Hard Candy back in the early 90's ( minus the jelly rings).
The Spring 2010 trend was very bohemian burnt bronzes, coppers and golds which were heavily emphasized in their Nail varnishes. I loved the eyeliners in ice blue and lilac, and there was supposed to be feather lashes with the collection, but have not made it to the store yet.

I tried the Gloss which I love- very moisturizing and has a scent I can't wrap my head around. It's kind of vanilla-y but not quite. The quality and pigmentation is A standard and I hope that the trend collections bring some fun favorites!

Tron inspired nails with Chanel Nouvelle Vague #527

Yes, I went there. Merging my two loves, film and beauty. While chatting with some friends over the weekend about an upcoming trip this summer and I mentioned that Chanel's Nouvelle Vague Nail Polish is a Tron-ish color. Of course my friends didn't get it ( generally comic book nerds don't care about Chanel in any way shape or form, however, I do!). Ha! A girl can dream and that would be the day.
Since I have more than a few months to go before the movie comes out, I decided to get inspired now! My research included the The Strokes 12:51 video and the Fall/Winter 2010 Balenciaga RTW collection.
