A Newfound MAC LoveMonday, April 01, 2013
I'm rediscovering MAC. Last year, I bought my first MAC blush in really long time (i.e., years)... Now, every time I pass a counter, I always end up leaving with an item (or four).
I recently picked these goodies up at the Bay (I'm there way too often). I received a $20 cash card in the mail to spend on a beauty purchase of $100 or more. The letter said it was for "preferred customers" but I think that's just a gimmick to make us feel special and to get us to spend more money.
But hey - I guess it worked because I ended up using it at the MAC counter. I picked up two blushes and two lipsticks for myself, and a lipstick (in Lovelorn, not pictured) for my mum.
Let's start with the blushes. I am a huge fan of sheertones. They're pigmented & buildable. My favourite part is how foolproof they are. Apply a little, apply a lot, it still looks great.
Pinch O Peach is a beautiful matte peachy-pink. I originally had my hand out for Pink Swoon but then I saw Pinch O Peach and I fell in love with the glow it gave my complexion.
The other blush I picked up was Peaches. It doesn't look like much in the pan, but it looks great on. It is a true matte peach. Again, it looks amazing with my complexion. I will be doing a post on how they look on, swatches don't really do them justice.

Lustres are my favourite MAC finish. They're comfortable on the lips, good pigmentation, buildable, and they have a slightly glossy finish.
See Sheer was my first choice. It's a pretty coral pink. I've been wearing it daily for the last week now. It's a great every day shade. A very natural wash of colour.
Lustering is a fun (but sheer) pink. It's a great summer colour and it really brightens the face.
I have my eye on some Amplified lippies next. Vegas Volt for one. I've been meaning to get it for months now.
Any MAC recommendations? x
