Yesterday I popped along to MAC Silverburn (easily the best customer service I've had in the UK in terms of shopping at MAC - I'm sure you know how it is?) and purchased a few things I didn't really need and yet I wanted. In my defence, it has been a while since I splurged anywhere let alone MAC and sometimes a gal needs to treat herself...right?
I really only wanted to stop by MAC to try their newest foundation MAC Studio Waterweight SPF30 Foundation (£25.50). On first test it was love, an utterly weightless liquid that quickly absorbs into the skin producing medium, almost matte coverage. Obviously I only purchased this yesterday and have yet to fully test it out but so far I would deem it to be the perfect foundation for anyone who hates the feeling of product on their face. As a side note do check your bottle before leaving the store, annoyingly my pipette/dropper tool had snapped off inside and I will have to return it - luckily my sister also bought a bottle, albeit a different shade so I could share a quick photo or two. It may have been a freak incident, who knows but do check and save yourself a return journey.
I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that MAC Lip Liners (£12.50) have a hold over me? I can't seem to go into MAC and not purchase at least one shade. It's becoming a problem. This time I purchased three nude hues that I have been meaning to try for what seems like forever: MAC Stripdown, MAC Subculture and MAC Boldly Bare. I'm hoping one will be my perfect light, go to nude - we shall see. I also purchased a MAC duo pencil sharpener (£5), simply because I have no idea where my other is and some of my liners are past the point of being blunt. As far as tools go, it is somewhat a necessity for me and I rather like that the design has two holes so you can also sharpen bigger, chunkier pencils too.
Lastly I decided to finally purchase MAC Paint Pot in Constructivist (£16), a shade that has taunted me for a while. This deep, slightly metallic, golden tinged chocolate brown is not only the perfect replacement for my now dried out MAC Éclair Paint Pot but the idea gentle smoky eye product. If you have blue or green eyes you need this.
I will of course be reviewing the above products in due course, do let me know if any of the above products catch your eye and on a separate note I am keen to know what your favourite MAC Paint Pot shade is?
