I have been relatively good lately and have not been buying makeup just for the sake of it or because of its hype. Myer is offering 10% off across cosmetics,skincare,fragrances and Bath & Body products until 13 March 2016 and since I am in the city today, I could not help but go shopping for makeup.
I walked around all the counters and thought long and hard about what I could buy to add into my makeup collection with one rule for today’s mission- something I will use often. I eventually decided to invest my money on some MAC items.
1. Pro long wear lip pencil – In Control
I heard this lip pencil from You Tube guru Kathleenlights. She has talked about this lip pencil from her channel a coupe of times I recall and said that she prefers MAC pro long wear lip pencils than their normal lip pencil formula. It lasts longer and it is a dupe for the cult favorite lip liner Soar. I tested both in store, and find that In Control has more pink in it and I like this one better. Also the pigmentation and lasting power is pretty impressive as I had a hard time to scrub it off my hand.
2. Eye Khol – Teddy
I was deciding between Teddy and Costa Riche and was convinced to take Teddy home with me. It is a beautiful deep brown, bronze colour and has shimmer in it. Costa Riche is similar in colour but completely matte. I feel I can use Teddy as a base under powder eyeshadows and it is also great for my waterline.
3. Pigment – Tan
I heard many great things about this pigment, and I am on the hunt of a good colour for all over the lid as for my eye shape, I prefer shimmer eye shadows in the inner parts of my lids. Look at that pigmentation and beautiful sheen! I cannot wait to put it on my eyelids tomorrow morning.
Have you tried any of these products? Anything else I should try from MAC?
Thanks for reading.
^Stay beautiful and fabulous, stay tuned for my next post.^
