I’ve noticed that MAC has been getting a lot of negativity thrown their way lately. With them releasing multiple collections within short periods of time, it seems that people have been getting a little frustrated. I still love MAC because they have a wide range of products, they ship to me relatively quickly and they have some really great permanent products. Also, because I haven’t been into MAC that long, I don’t mind seeing the collections and re-releasing of products that I may have missed out on.
My recent purchases from MAC have been pretty basic but I thought I would share.
MAC Blush Palette
Fits 6 MAC blush pans (of which I cracked two of my blushes trying to de-pot them and now I hate life! lol)
MAC Fix +
$10 (1 fl.oz.)
An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
Shade: Dark Deep
“A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day.”
I already have the Dark shade and I use it all the time. I bought the deeper shade to add a little bit more color to the perimeter of my face when I don’t want to use my bronzer.
“Naked beigey-pink (Lustre)”
I bought this lipstick and the next lipstick after seeing the shades on Glam Morena’s blog. I’m trying to hunt down my perfect nude lip color and wanted to try them out.
Shade: Viva Glam II
“Muted pink-beige with shimmer (Satin)”
MAC Mattene Lipstick
Shade: Rare Exotic
“bright midtone blue pink”
“With its streamlined design, this new slimline lipcolour, features the traditional glamour properties of a matte lipstick – intense colour and semi-matte velvety finish – while offering a creamier, softer, more glide-on application. Non-caking, non drying. Moisturizing and incredibly wearable yet absolutely matte.”
LOVE THIS! The formula and the color are both fantastic and this is my new favorite lipstick. I plan on buying a few more shades and a backup. These should totally be added to the permanent line.
Let me know if any of you want to see lip swatches as I can do a separate post.
