New MAC Cosmetics Purchases


Hello everyone! Here are a few purchases I recently made at MAC. I’m really starting to love exploring MAC’s line of makeup products, so far I’m impressed!

Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder-Pressed – I can’t tell you how long I’ve been on the search for a finishing powder that doesn’t make me appear lighter in complexion when I take pictures, but this powder does exactly what I want it to! As you can see from the photo, I have already used it a bunch. It finishes my makeup, leaves my skin with a matte finish, and I look normal in photos with a flash (woohoo!). What I also like about this powder is that you can apply as much as you want without overdoing the coverage.

Prep + Prime Lip – I can get some pretty dry lips sometimes (okay all the time) especially during the winter, and this lip primer is very creamy and hydrating! I love putting this on before I apply my lipstick because it helps the formula last. If you want, you could even apply this lip primer as a lip balm if your lips need some hydration.

Lipstick- Captive – I absolutely love this lipstick for everyday use! It has a Satin finish, so it appears both matte and creamy. I do find myself reapplying the lipstick after a few hours, but I personally don’t mind especially if I’m just wearing it to go shopping or run errands.

Lipstick- Lickable – If you’re like me and you’ve never tried any pink lipsticks before, this is definitely a great option. It has a Creamsheen finish, so the color pay off is sheer and not too overpowering. Overall I’m really loving the different types of MAC lipsticks, I think they definitely live up to the hype!

Thanks for reading!



Blush Review: MAC Pro Longwear Blush


Yippee my first MAC Cosmetics purchase! Very late I know right? Well I’ve been in need of an all-day blush and I found this gem while I was on the east coast last week. The MAC Pro Longwear Blush in the shade Stubborn actually stays on and doesn’t fade! It was almost 35 degrees everyday where I went to visit (very cold for being California-grown), and my blush lasted from morning until night.

If you are looking for a deep rose-colored blush to give you that natural “flushed” look, this is a great option. Also you want to add more when you go out at night, the color won’t become patchy or blotchy.

Have you tried MAC blushes? I’d love to hear your opinions!
