MAC Cosmetics Haul, 2014

Hi ladies!

This is just a quick post about my recent MAC Cosmetics haul.  I’ve spent PLENTY of money on MAC in the month of January, but I have some goodies that I’m VERY happy with and a few things to share with you all.

I absolutely LOVE MAC.  It is definitely one of my favorite cosmetic brands because it has tons of makeup goodies, awesome shades, and they brought me closer to my beloved Fix+ Spray.  Here’s a list of goodies that I recently picked up in January:

Lipstick ($16): “Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous” (maccosmetics.com).

  • Heroine: Bright purple
  • Rebel: Midtonal cream plum
  • Dark Side: Deep burgundy (AmplifiedCreme)
  • Up The Amp: Lavender violet (AmplifiedCreme)
 

Tinted Lipglass ($15): “A unique lip gloss available in a wide variety of colours that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Tinted Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It’s pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic colour. It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips. Tinted Lipglass is packaged in a convenient bottle with a sponge tip applicator that provides a quick, smooth, even application” (maccosmetics.com).

  • Angel: Light warm pink
 
Lustreglass ($15): “Two high-powered effects – Lustre and Glass – in one new lip finish. This amazing ornamental finish shines the lips with hi-shine overlaid with various tones of pearlized glaze. Beyond sexy. Transcends all known shine” (maccosmetics.com).
  • Love Nectar: Ultra-soft apricot with pearl
 

Lip Pencil ($15): “A pencil designed for shaping, lining or filling in the lip. Lip Pencils have a smooth, creamy texture that is perfect for lining the lips or filling them in. They’re available in a wide selection of colours that each work well with many different lipstick shades” (maccosmetics.com).

  • Hip ‘n’ Happy: Dirty Blue Pink
  • Chicory: Soft muted peachy-brown

Fluidline ($16): “Ultra-smooth, Fluidline’s gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on “foolproof” with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes. Brush sold separately” (maccosmetics.com).
  • Blacktrack: Solid flat black

MAC also has a wonderful program called “Back to MAC” where you can exchange 6 empty MAC containers (glass &/or plastic) for a lipstick of your choice.  *I recommend going to an actual MAC store because you have the option of choosing a lipstick, lipgloss (tinted lipglass ONLY), or an eyeshadow. 😉

I returned 12 empties today, actually, and picked up two tinted lipglasses in:

  • Snob: Light neutral pink
  • Please Me: Mid-tone warm pink

I just wanted to share my recent MAC purchases with you all so you have an idea of what I’m wearing as of lately.  In the below picture I’m actually wearing the ‘Chicory’ lip pencil and ‘Dark Side’ lipstick. 🙂

Until next time,
Ashley, xo.

Feature: Best Skin Care Items for Dry Skin Types

 

Hey ladies!  My name is Khira, and I am a makeup/product junkie. Nice to meet you! 🙂 I was born in, and currently reside in, New York City! I am interested in, and love all things, beauty and fashion related. I was never really into fashion or beauty when I was growing up, and I was a tomboy for the most part until the end of high school/beginning of college. I truly got to know myself as a person in college, and I became comfortable in expressing myself. I started to dabble into makeup and immediately became obsessed. Playing in makeup made me realize how important it is to actually take care of my skin. I used to wash my face once in blue moon and never really took the time to tend to its needs. My skin is not sensitive whatsoever, but it is extremely dry. Now that I have experimented with skincare products, and have learned what is best for me, I have decided to share my must-have skincare products for those who have drier skin types!
