If there's one thing that my friends and family would tell you about it, it would be that I am completely addicted to cosmetics! I love makeup! I have freelanced for M•A•C as a makeup artist for a few years and it fills this deep, deep passion that I have for cosmetics. However, sometimes this passion means that I go way, way overboard in my makeup purchases. Wait...that's not actually a thing. Never mind...
Here's what I picked up on my latest trip to M•A•C!!
I had to pick up some gifts for people as well as some stuff for myself so I had multiple bags. It always feels good to walk out of M•A•C with more than one bag!!
I picked up a new nude matte lipstick. I just felt like I was missing something in my nude lip collection and I couldn't put my finger on it! I have Velvet Teddy here on the left and I think that'll fill the void! I also picked up a cremestick lipliner to go along with it! I also got the Viva Glam Miley Cyrus lipstick! This hot pink is just gorgeous! I used to wear a lot of amplified finish lipsticks but I have kind of fallen away from them lately. This is just the one to get me back on the amplified wagon. Plus, I love Miley. On the right is something that I've been wanting for MONTHS! I am obsessed with Pro Longwear Lipglass. This one is in Forever Rose. I am slowly purchasing the whole line. These things feel so silky and amazing. Plus the wear time is incredible!!!
I also picked up Pink Nouveau (on the far left) for my mom. She wanted a new pink lipstick and this has been one of my long-standing M•A•C favorites! I also picked up a Viva Glam VI lipglass for my sister who's about to have a baby. It's one of those instant glam, easy glosses that's perfect for anything. I know she's going to love it! I also got myself the Miley Cyrus Viva Glam Lipglass...because it's Viva Glam. I mean, how can you pass up a charity lipglass in this gorgeous bright pink sparkly color?!
Here's a picture of me wearing Velvet Teddy lipstick from M•A•C. I love this color!!
I had to restock some of my favorite skin products. I was running low on Face and Body foundation. I use this almost daily when I'm teaching. I need to get out of the bathroom and off to work as fast as possible so I love the ease of Face and Body. It gives enough coverage, doesn't feel thick or greasy and leaves my skin looking radiant! On the right, I had to get a new bottle of Studio Fix Fluid. I love this stuff. I wear it a lot when I'm getting photographed or when I want more coverage. I needed a new bottle because I've gotten pale enough lately that my current shade was too dark and I haven't been able to wear this foundation. I'm happy to have it back. In the center, I picked up more Matte Bronze because I was basically out of bronzer. I love Matte Bronze!!
Again, I was basically out of all of this stuff. I feel like I always run out of everything at once. I had to get a new bottle of Fix+. If you don't use this stuff, you need to! Teachers work long days! This setting spray helps your makeup wear all day long. I can tell within a couple hours if I've forgotten my Fix+ spray. It makes such a huge difference. Brush cleaner is another staple for me. I have to keep my brushes clean so my skin doesn't break out and my shadows don't get muddy. I go through a lot of this stuff. On the right, Gently Off is my go to. I love this pink one. It takes off my eye makeup and any stubborn lip products with ease! It doesn't feel slimy or greasy either.
I had to get some Mineralize Skinfinish. I can't live without it. I use it as my setting powder every single day. I also finally ran out of my Warm Soul blush. I wear it almost every single day. It lasted me over a year with constant wear, so I can't really complain about that. Warm Soul is the perfect shade!! I also had to get a new mascara. I love Haute and Naughty. Last, an eyebrow pencil for my sister. She uses Brunette and Fling. I do love these eyebrow pencils. I use Anastasia Beverly Hills' Brow Whiz but I would be fine if I had to use these pencils.
Last, how can you go into a M•A•C store and not stockpile some gifts? These new M•A•C eye palettes are awesome! I had to get some for my kit and for gifts. The burgundy collection was my absolute favorite!!!
Thanks for checking out my M•A•C haul!! Which M•A•C products are your favorite?
