MAC Virgin No More


I know, I know. It's hard to believe. I can't understand it either. Why has it taken me so long to purchase a MAC product? I have plenty of more expensive brands, but this one never really appealed to me. Why was I so prejudiced against it? I've no idea. After some thinking I realized I was being silly and I finally entered the MAC store. The staff was friendly and helpful and I bought two products without actually having the intention to buy anything. So, this MAC virgin is no more! 

The first thing that caught my attention was the cremesheen glass lipgloss. I had heard of this before and it looked appealing. I looked at the different colors of lipgloss and wasn't able to make up my mind, so I based it on the name (so typical): "Dynasty at Dusk". 









The second thing that caught my attention was the cremeblend blush because I don't use blush that often. I have rosacea on my face so that gives 'natural' (and unwanted) rosy cheeks but this color looked so good that I wanted to test it. After being helped by the staff I was sure, I wanted it. Something new for me to play around with. Here's a look at "Posey": 





The third thing that caught my attention was this beautiful soft pink lipstick, but I figured that two items would be enough for now! So I quickly ran to the cash register so I wouldn't be tempted to take a closer look. Back to the two products I did buy: I really like the style and simplicity of both products and the colors are just so amazing. They give up such a natural, romantic and sweet vibe. 




This is what the products looked like on my face, I had to take them in different lighting for maximum clarity. I also added a bit more blush then I normally would so you'd actually see it on the pictures. My cheeks are 'naturally' rosy, so I don't need to add a lot, anyways. The lipgloss is a really soft nudish pink-brown. It's true. MAC has won me over. I can't wait to go back! 

What are your favorite MAC products, which do you recommend?

Mijn absolute favorieten: Stereo Rose MSF (als hij ooit nog eens gerepromote worden, gaan voor die handel!), Angel lipstick, Satin Taupe oogschaduw en de befaamde Dainty blush. Oh en de fluidlines ofcourse, Dip Down en Blacktrack worden zowat dagelijks gebruikt hierzo

  4. Awe Mac, it soon becomes addictive. I like their glosses when I want something that really stays there since they are quite sticky.

    Never tried the blushes though, I'm a rosacea sister. Lovely color pics, very feminine and understated.

  8. Great picks! Zelf ben ik enorm fan van MAC oogschaduw (ik heb er meer dan ik kan tellen) en ook de MAC Pro Longwear concealer is een vast product in mijn stash. Ik zorg altijd dat ik er eentje op reserve heb, zo goed vind ik hem.
