MAC Haul

Hello Again,

As I have mentioned before, my family got me some MAC vouchers for my Christmas so basically, as soon as I had a spare minute I placed an order and today, it arrived!!

There was a couple of things that I knew I wanted based on reviews and that was the 217 Blending Brush and the matte Lipstick Whirl. The 217 is super soft and hopefully helps me with creating softer lines with my eyeshadow. I really like how long and thin the brush is, I think that'll help with lighter application.

 Whirl is a deep reddy-brown lipstick and it's actually darker that I thought but I still like it. I've surprised myself in liking matte lipsticks but I've found MAC's last for a long time even throughout eating and drinking.

I have recently run out of my Pro longwear concealer by MAC but I found it really drying especially under my eyes so I thought I'd try out another kind so I chose Select Moisturecover in the shade NC15. I like that this one has a doe-foot applicator instead of the pro longwear which was just a pump.

I also decided to pick up a couple of eyeshadows the first being a satin shadow in the shade Brule. I wanted this one as I thought it would be a really good transition shade (I'm going to be trying to do more things eyeshadow wise other than my typical golds and browns). The other was a frost shadow in the shade White Frost. This is perfect for the inside corner of the eye as a highlight, i've found this really opens up the eyes and the pearlescence of this shadow is perfect! I may also try this under on the brow bone too - may be a bit too white for that though.

Because I spent over a certain amount I got a free sample of their zoom fast black lash mascara, I'll give this a try but I've not found a MAC mascara that I actually like yet, maybe this might be the one I do!

Have you bought anything from MAC recently? Got any shades you think I should try?

'Till next time ...
