Mac always sucks me in! Whenever I am in a store, the girls are always so helpful and I can spend ages in their playing with the colours and chatting to the girls. My favourite store is the Mac counter in Myer at Maroochydore Sunshine Plaza. The girls are amazing! Always happy to test products and colours on me and recommend new things I should try. So when I was there over the holidays of course I stopped by, and not just once. So todays post is my latest Mac Cosmetics Haul.
Mac Lipstick in Lady Danger.
I have always been a nude lipstick kinda girl. But lately I have been testing the water with some bright and bold colours. Especially Corals. When I saw this I really wanted to give it a go. So when I put it on I feel in love and new I had to have it. It is a gorgeous vivid bright coral red in a matte formula. Whenever I wear this I get lots of compliments, even from complete strangers. It is such a beautiful colour. If you like a coral red, then you need this one in your life.
Mac Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Oh Darling.
I already have this highlighter in Beaming blush. Its a pretty highlighter but a little more on the subtle side. So when I tried Oh Darling I nearly fell off my chair. It is a stunning Metallic Gold and I am in love. Its so pretty and can be used on the eyes as well. Perfect for that extra glam look.
Mac Eyeshadows – Rule, Embark and Nylon
I don’t have a lot of Mac eyeshadows, but of course one of the girls had these three on and I had to try them out as they looked so nice on. Yep those girls know how to sell makeup!
Rule is my favourite of the three. Honestly I think its becoming my favourite full stop. If you love corals or warm shadows you will love this Vivd orange matte shadow. I love it in the crease to brighten any eye look. It brings the colours to life! I was a little worried it would be too intense, but its not. Its the perfect amount of pigment and blends beautifully.
Embark is described as an intense reddish brown. A beautiful warm brown to deepen the crease or all over the lid for a brown smokey eye. It works really well with Rule too.
The last one I bought was Nylon, a pale gold with a white shimmer. Its a pretty colour for the inner corner highlight. It would also work well on a halo eye.
Mac Mineralised Skin Finish in Give Me Sun.
I love using bronzers and I always see You-tubers using Mac’s Give me sun and have always wanted to give it a go. It looks quite full on in the pan but is described as light summer peach tan. Sounded right up my alley. I wouldn’t suggest going in too heavy with this one but it is easy to build up and blend and I love the colour on my medium toned skin. Can’t believe I waited so long to grab this one.
Mac Studio Fix Foundation.
This is the first time I have bought this foundation. I have been in store and asked for samples so many times, and love it but then I can never remember the colour I tried last time. But while I was away Myer had a boxing day sale and Mac was 20% so grabbed a foundation. I wish I grabbed a darker shade though as my summer tan is throwing my colours right out when it comes to my foundations. But it will be perfect for Winter.
Mac Prolongwear Concealer.
I have repurchased this so many times as I love it. It lasts for ages and never fails me so grabbed one while it was 20% off as well. My only gripe is the pump dispenses more than I use on one application so I feel like I waste it so will probably end up pumping some into a tester pot so I can easily get out what I need each time.
With all these new products I think its time I did an all Mac makeup look. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below if you think I should create a look using only Mac products. xx
