Hello Girlies! ♡
I've been on a few sprees to the MAC stand at Debenhams and thought I'd share my recent purchases with you all. Since I've also had a chance to use all of them properly I thought I would also do mini reviews on the products and let you guys know what my thoughts on them are. Hope you enjoy x
What I've bought:
Left to right: Fleur Power, Well Dressed, Mineralize Skinfinish Soft & Gentle, Creme Cup, 109 Small Contour Brush + Subculture Lip Liner.
Powder Blush - Fleur Power
I've never owned a MAC blush of any kind before so this was my first purchase. I've definitely not been disappointed. This is a gorgeous sophisticated mauvey-pink colour that goes great with heavily contoured cheeks. I tend to wear this more when I go out in the evenings since it is quite a dark colour - however, a light hand would definitely make it day-time appropriate.
Powder Blush - Well Dressed
This blush is a cool-toned pink that looks amazing with heavy eye make-up or a bold lip as it doesn't draw too much attention to itself. I tend to wear this to work as it isn't very noticeable and gives me a lovely pink flush. This blush is great for light skin-tones as it's not so 'out there'.
Mineralize Skin Finish - Soft & Gentle
I've literally had my eye on this for YONKSSS. If you don't know - I'm a complete sucker for anything shimmery/glittery. This product is so gorgeous in it's packaging as well as upon application. I just sweep a little onto the tops of my cheekbones and it gives me such a radiant glow - was definitely worth the wait! I'm hoping to feature this in a highlight/contour routine post sometime soon!
Lip Liner - Subculture
This was actually a product one of the sales assistants kept trying to force on me (I can't stand it when they do that). Anyway, she managed to grab a hold of my sister and applied it to her lips before applying a nude lip colour. I must say I was impressed. I've never been one to use lip liners with nude lips because I never knew what a great difference it could make. Of course I ended up grabbing it up in the end. It's a flesh-toned liner that is slightly darker than my natural skin-tone and it shapes my lips perfectly and looks so natural at the same time. I'm not so sure if this would work with more medium-dark complexions but MAC has such a variety of different tones so I'm sure you'll be spoilt for choice!
Lipstick - Creme Cup
This is my favourite ever lipstick from MAC. It's the absolute perfect pinky nude for light to medium skin-tones. If you're looking for 'The One', look no further. This is a cremesheen lipstick so it's ever so creamy and well-pigmented. I love it.
FYI: This lipstick + the Subculture lip liner = A match made in heaven.
And that's the end of it! I really love everything I've bought and as always the products are such great quality. I've got my eye on a few of their gorgeous eye-shadows but can't seem to decide what colours I want. Any recommendations would be hugely appreciated!
See you guys soon! ♡
