Me and MAC go way way back. Though, somewhere along the line we just kinda forgot about each other. MAC was my first ‘non drugstore’ foundation, and I haven’t looked back ever since. It was my first MUA experience that wasn’t disastrous. Every once and again, my heart flutters and I end up walking away one MAC lipstick richer. Though last week, the damage was much bigger than just that one purchase. #SorryNotSorry
With the mind to only walk away with the MAC Studio Finish Concealer Duo (more on this later), I got distracted by the new Pencilled In Lip Liners, and namely Ruby Woo. When I told the SA that I’ve never tried, let alone owned one, she was baffled and handed the Ruby Woo Lip Pencil and Lipstick to me shortly after. I guess I can now understand the love, hype and cult-status behind Ruby Woo. It’s a gorgeous matte, long-lasting, cool-toned red, which will suit any squinting. For me, I find that red really brightens up my overall complexion and I always get tons of compliments when wearing red lipstick, so I went for it.
Going back to my initial purchase, the MAC Studio Finish Concealer Duo has been on my radar ever since last December. Something that covers blemishes, is water-resistant, fragrance-free and non-acnegenic and is something I clearly need. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my RMS “Un” Cover-Up – using this every day – but for those long days, I need something a bit more long-lasting. I’ve only tried this a handful times, but I love it. It’s slightly creamy and very easy to blend. I’m shade NW25/NC30, which I personally never would’ve guessed, so I’d recommend getting shade matched in store. After I left the counter, leaving the SA very content and my bank account with a huge dent, I headed to the Shavata counter to get my brows done. I mean… damage was done anyways.
