MAC invited 80 beauty bloggers to come up with a product from their line (an eyeshadow or lipglass) and out of all the submissions nine bloggers were chosen to go to MAC’s factory headquarters in Toronto to team up with chemists to put the finishing touches on their shades.
Below you’ll see the names of all nine bloggers and the shades they created. I’ve already set a reminder for June 21st because I MUST get my hands on Afrobella’s “All Of My Purple Life”, Lianne’s “Hocus Pocus” shadow (I was intrigued by the description but seeing her swatch and reasoning behind it sealed the deal), and I pretty much *need* Wendy of Nitrolicious’ “Nitro:licious 2046“.

This is all incredibly exciting to have bloggers I admire and some I know get honored by a major cosmetics company like this! And I’ll be totally geeked to buy and wear makeup created by them, too.
