It’s been awhile since I’ve done some “makeup shopping damage.” I receive a lot of great products in my subscription boxes and really only go shopping for the products that aren’t sent.
I had a list of things that I’ve been wanting/needing to pick up from Mac and I finally made my way down there.
I started using Mac products about two years ago and I have fallen in love. I feel like I purchase more products there now then Sephora. I didn’t have a ton of time to shop so I went in there for just a few things and will be back to get a few more later on.
Here are the five products I purchased. I will be posting swatches of everything later on.
Mac lipstick in “Taupe.” I’ve been wanting to try this lipstick for a long time. I love natural shades and this looks like it would be beautiful. It is a matte finish.
Mac Studio Finish Concealer in NW20. This is my favorite concealer I have ever tried. A little bit goes a long way. It is a thicker concealer, but doesn’t cake up and won’t budge if set with a powder. I’ve repurchased this quite a few times.
Mac eye shadow in “Woodwinked.” I love my neutral eyeshadows and this definitely belongs in my eyeshadow palette. This is a veluxe pearl finish.
Mac pigment in “Copper Sparkle.” I went into Mac looking for a beautiful copper eyeshadow. I kind of shocked myself because I normally stick to my basic neutrals. But with spring and summer coming up, I was craving something different. I played around with some eyeshadows, but when I saw this it drew me in. It is a VERY bold pigment. A little bit definitely goes a long way. I think it’s going to take a little getting used to on my part, but it’s a nice change.
And lastly…Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in “Medium Golden.” Normally I purchase drugstore powders. I have fallen in love with Rimmels Stay Matte powder. I have heard amazing things about this powder and finally gave in and purchased it. It is WAY more expensive than Rimmel’s powder at $32, but it felt so soft and blended beautifully into my skin. I need to test this some more, but I will be comparing it to my usual powders to see if it is worth 3-4 times the money.
I probably could/would have purchased more if I didn’t stop myself. Mac is always coming out with new products and new collections and they lure me in.
