Man oh man, if there were an award for the most pathetic sad excuse for a blogger I would win that award with flying colours, hands down. I'm so sorry that I haven't been posting in God knows how long, but real life kept me back a bit this month! So I thought what better way to get back into the swing of things than by sharing some of my most recent MAC splurges.
My MAC haul this time around consists of a few repurchases of some good old favourites of mine. The Studio Fix Plus Liquid Foundation and Powder have been life long favourites. I get both the liquid and powder in the shade NW20. While they do tend lean on the medium to full coverage side of things, I find these two to be great in terms of covering those pesky blemishes and on nights where I need my foundation to do the hard yards. Some people hate how full coverage these two are, but I honestly adore them, especially the powder. I have tried various other powders in my time but I always seem to come back to this. I think it's love.
I also repurchased the trusty MAC Brush Cleanser. I definitely don't wash my brushes as often as I should (I know, how naughty of me) but when I do, this stuff makes it so much easier. I highly recommend this for cleaning brushes. I had a brief stint with baby shampoo, but nothing I find cleans and maintains the quality of my brushes as good as this does. Worth all the money for sure.
At the time I did my little MAC spree, the A Fantasy of Flowers collection was just released online in Australia (late to the game again, as always) so I picked up a few products from that collection as well. I felt that I was obliged to repurchase the Mineralise Skinfinish in 'Stereo Rose' as it was finally re-released in this collection. I did manage to snag one the last time it was around but I use mine quite often and I feared I would run out one day without a back up (as if I don't own enough blushes in similar shades anyway, heaven forbid). I believe this blush is worth every bit of hype it receives, it's the perfect peachy pink with just a touch of shimmer. I also got a lipstick in the shade 'Dreaming Dahlia' which is such a lovely red coral. It is a bit on the sheer side, but I think it's a nice pop of colour that can be used in a daytime look. Lastly from the collection, I got a Cremesheen Glass in the shade 'Nectarsweet' which is pretty much a light peach gloss.
Of course no MAC haul would be complete without a few lippies. I felt my little collection was severely lacking in nude peach shades (but rather abundant in corals might I add) and I needed a new shade for winter so I went for the all time favourites, 'Shy Girl,' 'Patisserie' and 'Syrup.' At the moment I am in love with Patisserie, it's such a nice 'my lips but nicer' shade. AND lastly, I also purchased a Mineralize Blush in the shade 'Warm Soul' which I regret just a teeny tad as it is so similar to NARS Lustre. However, I do love that shade so I feel like this will get some use from me eventually...
What do you think of some of the products I've mentioned? Any favourites? Let me know!
