I wore this MAC Patrick Starrr face kit to Trader Joe’s yesterday and had a moment.
It’s not like a Mariah Carey diva spotlight shot down from the heavens in the middle of Trader Joe’s yesterday, but one might as well have. I was standing in front of the eggs gawking at an empty section on the top shelf where the liquid egg whites were expected to be. Connor was sitting in the cart, and I looked at her and said, “THERE’S NOOOOO MORRRRRRRRE!” possibly a little too loudly (and my family wonders where she gets her expressive tendencies).
I was wearing, by the way, one of the two new MAC Patrick Starrr face Kits with purple matte lips, a peachy mauve lid with blue liner, and plum cheeks…
It was subtle though. It wasn’t too crazy for Trader Joe’s at two on a Tuesday afternoon, and I know this because none of the seniors from the nearby senior center shot me side eye while I was eyeing the pre-made salads.
I’m wearing the MAC Patrick Starrr Me So Fleek full face Kit, and the lip is Queen P Lipglass.
Hey young boy hello Lipstick is very pigmented, but it’s still easy enough that you can apply it straight from the tube, which is what I did here, without needing a lip brush or lip liner. It’s much more pink and purple than MAC Heroine (in case you were wondering if it was a dupe)
Cut back to scene: me standing there with my arms outstretched to the heavens (the florescent ceiling lights) and saying, “THERE’S NOOOOO MORRRRRRRRE!” and this dude who was restocking a display of asparagus nearby said, “There’s no what, miss?”
And I was like, “EXCUSE ME? Did you call me MISS?” and I momentarily forgot that I wanted the egg whites to make overnight oats for my breakfast tomorrow because nobody — and I imply nobody — calls me miss anymore.
Kissat ja meikkipaita?
I mean…I feel like I look pretty young for my age, but I get called ma’am now, and it doesn’t help that I walk around with a grumpy piano teacher face all the time because I’m so friggin’ tired, and my lips are pursed, my jaw is clenched, and my hair’s up in a severe bun so the baby doesn’t pull it when she’s TT-ing (toddler tantrum-ing). but yesterday my locks were loose and flowing, and I was wearing this Me So Fleek face Kit.
So I was workin’ it, son.

The lipstick and gloss worn together
And maybe I had a little of Patrick Starrr’s sparkle radiating off me…?
All I know is that ASPARAGUS DUDE straight UP CALLED ME MISS. then he went in the back to check if there were any much more cartons of liquid egg whites waiting to be taken out (there weren’t).
Still, it was a good day.
MAC Patrick Starr Me So Fleek face Kit

Blush will go ’80s on you real quick (so diffuse it).
Quad is completely wearable, even with no sign of a golden matte brown in sight (I KNOW, who AM I?!). mix the matte pink mauve and shimmery gold together, and put it on your lids. DO IT. Peeps at TJ’s will think you’re in your 20s.
Best thing is the lipstick — so smooth, even on flaky lips. If I were new money and careless, I’d wear pointy Gucci heels that hurt my feet, walk into Z Gallerie and ask for the most significant brushed suede pillows in the exact pinky plum shade. then I’d organize them thoroughly on my white tufted living room sectional, and take pictures of myself not smiling in front of them for Instagram.
Lipglass is pigmented enough to stand on its own.
I like this entire kit a lot much more than I thought I would. It’s colorful but still wearable.
The blue shadow is one of my favorite things about this kit. It’s an outstanding eyeliner, whether applied wet or dry. similar to MAC Deep Truth.
All the items in the kit are full size.
