recent buys | mac


Recently I ventured into Mac which only ever ends up in spending far more dollar than I should be doing. I haven't bought from there in absolutely ages, in all honesty I'm completely uninspired by their collections and think they should just stop doing them as they always seem to be tacky and pointless. On another note, I can't get enough of their lipsticks and probably own about 40 of them. I picked up the shade Fashion Revival which is an absolutely beautiful deep raspberry red which I can safely say I have nothing similar already, along with Flamingo which is a lovely pink coral colour. I also went for a cremeblend blush in Brit Wit which has turned out to be my favourite purchase, it's absolutely perfect for my olive skintone and is so flattering worn with a red lip. If you buy just one new blush this autumn/winter I'd say make it this. Plus with it being a cream and not powder blush it lasts much longer on the skin and gives a healthy glow. Last but not least, I opted for Vanilla pigment. While it is a little messy and easy to spill it does give the most perfect highlight for cheekbones and on the brow bone, it's great to blend out a smokey eye with too.
