I made a nice haul at MAC during a recent trip to London. Because I am on a no buy now (ahem) I thought I may as well buy some bits from the In The Groove collection and some other cosmetics I’ve been meaning to try:
I have to say, all the MAC SA’s I dealt with this time where friendly and helpful, unlike my usual experiences.
Anyway, here’s what I bought.
One of the Superglass Lip Glosses in Sweet Tart, a baby pink with gigantic chunks of glitter!
I love glitter but this is so chunky – hence I only bought one to try.
I bought a new pencil:
This is the Chromagraphic pencil which comes in a few skin tones. I got the one which was in the middle, which the SA said I could use as an eyeliner, but I figured it’s quite a nice multi use product I can use on the lips too.
I purchased 3 lipsticks – Jazzed from the In The Groove collection (a juicy sheer peach-coral), Patissere which is a sheer pink-beige nude. It barely shows up on me! And Lady Danger which is quite orange based – I like!
Of course I had to buy Stereo Rose. To be honest it’s ok – I don’t get what all the fuss is about. When I was in store there were plenty left!
I bought 2 of the mineralized eyeshadows – Togetherness which is the purple combination and Blue My Mind. I bought Togetherness – well I don’t even know why but I’m glad I did – it’s gorgeous!
Finally I bought 2 more things – a Mineralized SPF15 foundation which I do really like! This was the one a previous SA had matched me to NC40 to. This time apparently I’m NC30. So I’ve changed shades rather quickly!
I like this foundation a lot – it’s good for dry skin.
Finally I bought a Mineralized Natural Beauty Powder in Medium Plus. At the moment I really don’t want to look orange so I went for this over Medium Dark, despite the SA’s “Don’t you want to look a bit tanned?!” comments.
MAC is a weird one for me. From the start of this blog 3 years ago, I said that they don’t always light my fire, but there’s always something quite comforting about doing a MAC haul. Some of their products just work quite well.
Have you hauled anything from MAC recently?
