:true: never been to one though but I did hear of Mac (as in cosmetics parties)^^^ I dont mind it so much. I mean, if you are going to buy kitchen stuff or candles or whatever I dont mind buying them at a blank-party, you know? I havent hosted any, but my mom and aunts do different ones and my moms theory is that if you are going to buy x-item anyway, why not host the stupid party and get what you wanted to buy anyway for free?
There are a thousand different types of these things out there, I would be wary of one I hadnt heard of before or that didnt have a website to see the merchandise. My best friend went to one that was ALL knock offs, but the others I went to with relatively nice bags were all online so i got to see the bags first.
