Mac Goodies♥

I hadn't ever tried mac makeup until May last year when my mum bought me one of their lipsticks (read review here) and I've been hooked ever since. Then, at Christmas, I received a mac gift voucher, and the excitement was all too much over what I'd spend it on. After various trips to mac, I finally settled for two of the most beautiful products in the shop - Mehr lipstick and Show Gold highlighter.

I'm not going to lie - the lipstick stand was slightly daunting to me. So many lipsticks, too many choices. After what seems like forever, and about 20 lipstick swatches later, I opted for Mehr. I knew I wanted to invest in a lipstick which is versatile enough for a daily basis, is kind of on the nude side and lasts long periods of time. Mehr is a matte formula, but, I find it extremely creamy and non-drying, and it also lasts for a lengthy period of time. It's quite a mauve shade, and is on the cooler side with obvious cool undertones. Surprisingly, this compliments my pale skin, and I know for a fact it would look stunning on darker skin tones too.



Surely you can never have too many highlighters, right? Although near enough everyone and their dog seems to praise Soft and Gentle, I felt it was too "white" for my skin tone. Then, Show Time caught my eye with it's beautiful golden undertones. You perhaps know my love for Mary Lou which is a gold toned highlight, so it's no surprise I fell for Show Time. It's iridescent shimmers are sure to glow in any light possible. The pigmentation is insane, almost blinding, and this is always the ultimate goal. I adore the design of the highlight in the pan, and I feel that the black packaging looks professional and sleek. It's a highlight which is sure to compliment near enough any skin tone to achieve the desired glow.

It did take some time to choose what I wanted, I will admit that, but I am over the moon with the items I chose in the end. They're such beautiful products which are sure to compliment everyone.

Which products do you recommend from mac for my next trip?

  5. I have the Soft & Gentle highlighter which I do like for a natural look but I agree it is quite 'white'. I only have a few select things by MAC as I'm always overwhelmed by the choices they offer. I use the MAC 217 makeup brush all the time.. its amazing for blending eyeshadow. Great post! xo

    1. Don't get me wrong, it does look pretty but I don't know how it'd look on my skin tone! Oh I've heard so much about that brush. Thank you! x

  6. It looks like you put a lot of effort into your choices. I think you made some nice ones, they look like they would be great on fairer skin tones.
