Do you love MAC as much as I do? I recently purchased a few things (some new, some repurchases), and I thought I would share them with you all. MAC is such a great place to buy makeup and their makeup artists are always so helpful and nice. Also, do you know about the Back2MAC program? You can take in 5 empty containers and they will let you exchange them for a lipstick or eyeshadow (depending on where you go). I wish Sephora did that. Haha. Anyway, here is what I bought. Let me know if you have tried any of these!
Fix Plus – This is a repurchase for me. Fix Plus is my little bottle of heaven; my secret weapon if you will. This is a refreshing spray for your face that smells SO good. I like to use it after I’m done with my makeup to take away the “powdery” look. I also spritz it onto my eyeshadow brush before applying shimmery shadows to make them look better and more pigmented. I love this stuff. It’s nice to keep a bottle in the fridge when it is hot outside too just to mist on your face.
Frost Blush in Margin – This blush is new to me, and I have no idea what took me so long to try it! This color is not one I would typically go for, I usually pick up peachy or pink blushes. This blush is a frost, but there aren’t any glitter chunks in it, it just gives a gorgeous sheen to the cheeks. The color is very natural-almost rose gold colored. It is BEAUTIFUL.
Lustre Lipstick in Syrup – This is a repurchase for me. If you have reading my blog for awhile, you know that the Lustre finish is my favorite finish of MAC lipsticks. I like them because they are sheer, but you can build them up. I also love how moisturizing and glossy they look and feel on the lips. This color is a “my lips but better” color. It is very similar to Plumful, but lighter. This is my perfect everyday mauve-y pink lipstick.
Lip Pencil in Dervish – I wanted to try this color because I know that brown-y pink lips are very in right now and for the fall. This is a gorgeous color that is not too brown, but it’s definitely not a bright pink. MAC lip liners are my favorite; they really do help your lipstick stay on forever, and they don’t dry out your lips!
Eye Kohl in Teddy – this is another repurchase. I LOVE MAC EYE KOHLS. These and the Urban Decay 24/7 liners are the only ones that actually stay on the waterline and don’t smudge. This color is a deep brown with shimmer. It is so pretty and is similar to Bourbon from Urban Decay. I love to wear brown eyeliner instead of black sometimes because it really softens your look. A brown smokey eye with this liner is PERFECTION.
Veluxe eye shadow in Sketch – This is also a repurchase! I love this color, it is a deep plum purple with golden shimmer. If you have brown eyes, you need this in your life. Even if you have hazel and green eyes, this would look amazing on you. It is a beautiful color and perfect for a deep plum eye look. Very fall and winter appropriate.
