MAC splurge


I got the 109 brush. It looks weird as its jsut been washed. I love it ... so far :D I used it for powder/blush. I may use it for foundation tomorow.



My MAC products came yesterday :) Heres a kind of collage of them.




I purchased:

(Left to right on the top row)

Myth Lipstick (satin)

Speeddial Lipstick (Cremesheen)

Nylon eyeshadow

Wedge eyeshadow

All that glitters eyeshadow

Mattifier


(Left to right on bottom row)

Studio Sculpt concealer NC20 - This is too light for me as i have a tan

Studio fix powder NC25

MSF Natural - Medium

Blush in Welldressed




My favorite from using them yesterday and toay (not long i know!) is..

Myth lisptick, MSF Natural and Mattifier


Myth Lipstick is the perfect nude. It is a creamy beige lipstick that goes on lovely. It complements my skin really well and when it wears off it still looks good. Id defooo reccomend this to anyone who likes nude lipsticks. I was kind of worried to use this lipstick because everyone loves this lipstick and i didnt want it to be a let down. But it isnt :)


The MSF natural if the perfect shade for me at the moment. Mine is in the shade natural - i thought it would be too light when it was delivered but its fine. It goes on your skin quite sheer and makes it look very flawless. Although its a power it does leave a degree of a sheen (not shine) to the skin. I use this as an all over powder but im thinking of getting a darker shade as an all over bronzer.


The Mattifier is really strange.

It comes out of the tube as a gel, yet when you apply to the face it turns to a powder. I applied it after my moisturiser before my foundation. I applied it to my t-zone where i get most oils. - I have a combination of dry and oily skin. I have oils in thne t-zone yet really dry/eczma (didnt spell that right :)) everywhere else. It made my skin more matt without drying it. Its a few hours since i applied it and although i have a sheen my t-zone does look less 'greasy'. Disgusting i know hah.


P.s. Nylon is a lovely highlighter but im not sure if i like the effect it gives. Hmm...


So anyways :) If anyone has any suggestions for products i should purchase let me know.
