A Long Overdue MAC Splurge

10 March, 2015

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?

    Nice picks! I love Lady Danger- one of my favourites! I think it would look gorgeous on you, especially when paired with a deeper liner for some extra dimension :)

      Orange just doesn’t work for me on it’s own. I’m working at it though, but yeah, it’s going to get a nice deep liner to go with it!
