Two New From MAC.


I haven't picked up something from MAC in what seems like years - it's probably been two weeks I'm aware - and I took it upon myself to have a little mooch around at duty free, which of course resulted in one or two little purchases.

I can't make a trip to MAC and not snoop around the lipstick section for half an hour. After an arm full of swatches I settled on the shade 'On Hold' which is a lovely mid-tone raspberry shade, perfect for a summers evening. There are always so many shades I haven't heard of and love from MAC, every time I go there's at least three I need, so leaving with just one deserves a pat on the back me thinks. It's a cream sheen formula which is my favourite from MAC as they're super pigmented, easy to build and they aren't drying at all. Raspberry shades are some of my favourites to wear in the evenings, and during the winter - it's currently summer I know, I know - so I had to pick this up.

Years ago I picked up the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, I loved it, but had other ones I used when it run out so never repurchased. When I saw it again, my love for it came back, and I added it to my basket. I'm so happy I picked this up, if you have dark under eyes, this stuff is amazing at covering. The only pet peeve I have with this is the pump isn't very user friendly, it's hard to get a small amount out, so 9 times out of 10 you will end up with more than you need. Nevertheless, a bit of blending does the trick and it looks flawless and natural on the skin. This is high-coverage, but it's not at all drying under the eyes and it doesn't crease, something I struggle with a lot. I have the shade NC 20 which is perfect for under the eyes as it's a bit lighter than my skin tone so it really helps to brighten and lift the area. This is one of the few concealers which actually hides my dark circles, it's amazing!
