I went into MAC! :)
Without Flash (Satin Taupe on left, Well dressed on right)
So the other day, I went out looking for a dress, but instead I ended up in MAC. Now this was not a MAC store but instead a little kiosk in a bigger department store. So I walked through it quickly but my mom was not about to let me walk out of there empty handed. So i went back, with my sweaty nervous palms and picked out a blush and eyeshadow. I really wanted the 239 brush but they were behind the checkout counter which means I would have had to ask for it, and that was not about to happen.
But I am very happy with my purchases! This was my very first MAC blush. I have been using the NARS orgasm for the longest time but found that it was just to dark for my skin tone. So I got the MAC Powder Blush in Well Dressed, it is a very nice light peachy pink colour. I apply it with the MAC 168 brush just to the apples of my cheeks, it gives a nice light rosy effect.
I also go the eyeshadow in Satin Taupe. I heard a lot of great things about this eyeshadow. Mainly that if you were running late or having a lazy day you could just sweep it over your lid and go. And I must say, this is true, its a great go to colour. I have used every day since buying it and have paired it with different crease and outer corner colours every day. I really like it with Mulch is the crease and any dark brown in the outer corner or revlon matte eyeshadow in Riviera blue. Which is a nice dark blue colour.
When swatched, I find that Satin taupe comes off a little darker then it actually does on the lid but other then that the quality is great, very smooth and seamless.
Anyways, I had a question; I have been watching a lot of youtube videos lately and I see girls saying that they need to return their empty packages to mac? So if anyone could let me in on that, it would be greatly appreciated.
