I am so excited! I ordered a small MAC haul about a month ago to try a few things out, well needless to say, I loved everything I received. I applied for a MAC Pro Card to get a discount (I'm a licensed cosmetologist) & waited ever so impatiently to get it in the mail. I had an order sitting in my cart on MAC's website & Wednesday it came in the mail. So I placed an order Friday afternoon. Now, I want you to know, YES I spent a lot of money. However, I do weddings & will be able to make the money back. (It's justifiable right?) On to the goodness!:
Here's a picture of everything I ordered. 3 eye liners, 1 liquid foundation, 1 concealer, 1 bronzing powder, 1 powder foundation, 16 eye shadows & 4 lipsticks.
Here's the Custom eye shadow palette, liquid eye liner, pencil eye liner & gel eye liner. All the eye liners are black. You'll see the eye shadows below!
These are the amazing eye shadows I ordered. I cannot wait to try them, I do have another MAC 4 eye shadow palette. I ordered 15 to fill the custom palette & one that I had to have!
In no particular order, I purchased: Sketch, Vanilla, Woodwinked, Shroom, Freshwater, Plum Dressing, Humid, Gorgeous Gold, Amber Lights, Patina, Contrast, Satin Taupe, Sumptuous Olive, All That Glitters & Vibrant Grape.
I also purchased Tempting, which I am so glad I didn't pass up!
The palette was nicely wrapped, it came in a heavy paper bag & this box. All of the eye shadows come separately & you just pop them in the palette however you prefer. I chose to do neutrals & then brights.
I have read awesome reviews about all 3 liners. I picked up the pencil liner or Eye Kohl in Smolder (black), I also decided to try their liquid eye liner or Liquidlast Liner in black & gel liner or Fluidline in Blacktrack.
I purchased Russian Red lip stick & I am obsessed. So much that I'm wearing it on my wedding day (SATURDAY!) I purchased 4 gorgeous shades!
As always, MAC has sleek black packaging & the color is always amazing!
Here's the color's I picked up this order: Creme Cup, Impassioned, Myth & Saint Germain.
And here you can see the colors: Saint Germain, Myth, Impassioned & Creme Cup.
Last are the face products. I got mainly face products last time & I love them, however, I think the Pro Longwear foundation is a little too heavy on my skin. I also noticed that it caused some minor break outs which I should have figured but since I was so excited to try the products I slapped them on. Not a good idea 2 weeks before your wedding! I still use the Studio Finish Concealer every single day because it's AMAZING but I have been sticking to Bare Minerals. Anyway, this time I ordered Studio Fix Foundation Plus in NC30 (I have it in NC25 but I have been tanning). I ordered Studio Fix Fluid in NW20 & I'm going to mix it with Pro Longwear in NC30. I also picked up a Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden & Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20.
The camera really washes the color out. They are much darker in person!
After the wedding, I will be swatching & reviewing everything!
Do you think MAC is worth the price or is it all just hype?
