MAC Haul

Hi everyone!

Sorry for my lack of posts over the past week, I've been busy with university and work and then I had a mad moment when I thought I'd chucked my camera lead out, but thankfully I found it!

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was awaiting a few things from MAC, and to my delight they came just two days later! Well done MAC!

Here's what I got (please excuse the bad quality photos, my camera is very new and I can't work out how to stop it blurring):

First up is Snob lipstick. This has a Satin finish and is described by MAC as a 'ladylike mauve'.
I had always seen this on counters and been drawn to it, but shied away and stuck to my failsafe pinks like 'Angel' and 'Creme Cup'. However I finally picked this up and I am so, so glad I did!

The lipstick is wonderfully creamy and the colour pay off is amazing! I thought it would be hard to wear but it's a gorgeous, wearable colour and looks great both day and night time!

I thought it would be hard to overthrow 'Angel' as my number one MAC lipstick but I think 'Snob' has done it! Absolutely love this!

I also got two eyeshadows in Cork and Shroom.

These are my first MAC eyeshadows and I'm really glad I invested in them. 'Cork' is a satin finish and is described by MAC as a muted golden brown. It needs a little work to get a good colour pay off but it looks amazing on and is so wearable, I've just been using it on a daytime but it would be a great night time smokey eye too!

'Shroom' is also a satin and MAC describes it as a soft muted golden beige with opalescent shimmer. You can really notice the shimmer but in a lovely, subtle way. It is a brilliant highlight for the browbone and tear duct area, I just love it!

Oh dear, this is blurry! Never mind, I'm sure you've all seen pictures of this already!

This is the lipglass in Emancipation from the recent Wonder Woman collection. It's a great size but a big downside is that the brush is hard to pull out of the tube and you end up spattering the product everywhere!

However the colour is just gorgeous, described by MAC as a pale neutral pink, but I think it also has some slight peachy, corally tones. This is beautiful just on its own, and the texture is ever so slightly sticky, but just in the way that you feel it will stay on your lips for a long time, which it does!

So there's what I got from MAC! I'm a very happy bunny with those purchases!

Hope you are all well
