That’s a sneak peek shown of the above of the most comfortable heels I’ve EVER own. For reals. They’re the Sofia Z model called Isabel. And not only will I be talking about just why they’re so comfy soon, we’ll be giving away a pair too! Stay tuned…

Question of the Week: What’s the first beauty/makeup item that you remember coveting?

Answer: Oh, that’s an easy one – MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish. I wanted it when it was first released in 2005 (along with just about every other beauty junkie). I swapped the equivalent of beauty arm and a leg for it well before we heart this was even a gleam in our eyes! And it was well worth it.

    Ooh, I love comfy heels, which are a hard find! I honestly can’t even remember what I first coveted… I was just excited to move away from my Clinique, and into the grown up world of MAC lol…

    The first makeup item I think I REALLY coveted was MAC Moth Brown eyeshadow. I wanted it back when it was first released in the Barbie collection, which I was able to acquire the Beauty Powders from. Then I found out about Moth Brown too late and it took me years and a re-release to finally get my hands on it. Never say never with MAC!

    Oh, those shoes are gorgeous & I bet your legs look miles long in them. I remember being absolutely crazy for a crocodile embossed Estee Lauder compact. I got it for my sweet 16 from mom and still carry it.

    COMFY HEELS?! GIVEAWAY?! You’re saying all the right words…

    I honestly can’t remember the first single beauty product I was seriously lemming. It was probably MAC Mineralize Skin Finish also.

    My first coveted makeup item(s) would be Chanel Vamp lipstick and nail polish. I was a poor college student, but I scraped the cash for those 2…before that I was firmly in the region of drugstore and Clinique and my makeup purchases for the year would revolve around Clinique bonus times so I could get more bang for my buck :)
