So as mentioned before my birthday was Sunday and on Friday I decided to finally cave and treat myself to my first MAC haul. I had not been in a MAC store until November last year when I went with a friend. I am terribly nervous in MAC stores, it is just a different language to me. It took me a while to be at home in Sephora and it will take practice to be comfortable in MAC. I had scoped out reviews and had the ones I wanted in mind which made the trip super quick.
I love MAC packaging it is so simple but elegant.
I got three lipsticks and one lip pencil.
The first is called Syrup, it is a beautiful pink from their Lustre lipstick line. Lustres seem to be what they call their sheer lipsticks. I have a hard time finding nude pinks that look good on me so I thought a sheer would be a nice one to try. And I was right, it looks amazing on me.
Second is probably my favourite item from the purchase. This is another Lustre lipstick in the shade Plumful. It is a beautiful pink/plum shade that is just sheer enough to not cake to my lips but does not look too wet and glossy. It is what I have been wearing almost every day.
This last lipstick was a YouTube inspired purchase. I have seen so many reviews on this guy. This is their Ruby Woo which is a Retro Matte lipstick, which apparently means very matte. It is a beautiful blue toned red. I will have to get back to you on this, I usually only wear red for special occasions.
Last was not on my list going in, but the sales associate seemed very into this lip pencil. It is the matching one for Ruby Woo. It is a nice pencil, but I do not think I will keep it. It is just not something I see myself using that much.
What are some more MAC essentials I need to try? Let me know below!
