I used to shop at MAC fairly regularly. Way back when I was still taking the GO Train into work, I would go right by a MAC store in Royal Bank Plaza. Invariably, as every new collection came out, I owned it the day it came out, before I even got to the office. Then I moved and despite living right next to Fairview Mall, my trips to MAC pretty much became non-existent, other than the occasional pop-in with Julie, but even those are a thing of the past! Well this past weekend, I made it a point to make a trip to a MAC counter to pick up a few things that I’ve either had on my wishlist for a while, or needed replacing (yes Zoe, I do run out of things, lol). I even dragged my mother along just for shits and giggles.
So while this haul is not overly large, it was large enough. I picked up MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger, a Lip Glass from the MAC*Toledo collection in SIN, Prep+Prime Highlight in Peach Lustre, and MAC Lip Pencils in Vino and Soar!
Look at that beautiful shade! Now Lady Danger is not really a colour that I would wear on it’s own. It is far too orange for me to be able to really pull it off without some kind of darker lip liner and making it a bit two-toned. But this shades is key to a lip look that I have been loving lately so stay tuned for that.
Then of course, we have the Lip Glass in SIN. I have had this shade, or a shade like it before. I stopped using MAC Lip Glass because it is so overly sticky, but the truth is that I just love this shade so I had to pick it up.
Then we have MAC’s Prep + Prime Highlight in Peach Lustre. I love this stuff. The powder version, not so much. But the reality is that this stuff helps to even out any of the darker discolouration on my skin before I apply my foundation. I do tend to look like an oompah loompah when I put it on, but the end results are so worth it.
And I also picked up two Lip Liners that are always a staple in my kit; Vino and Soar. With Wedding Season rapidly approaching, it was completely necessary to replace these two lip pencils in my kit. Plus, as much as the brides like them, I like them just as much.
So there you have it. There is my very, very overdue but much needed MAC Haul. Have you made any overdue hauls lately?
