I Came. I Saw. And Here’s My MAC Haul.

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.
