Where I go to school, we don't have a MAC store or counter nearby. This breaks my heart every day. Thankfully, MAC has an online store that has become my only link to my longtime obsession. I recently got an email that MAC was having a free two day shipping offer and I jumped at the opportunity to pick up a couple of things I've been lusting after for a while. I received them yesterday and immediately took photos for a blog post while they were still fresh and clean in their packaging.
|MAC Paint Pot in 'Bare Study'|
This Paint Pot in 'Bare Study' has been a favorite among beauty gurus for a while. I've seen countless swatches online and make up looks using it and decided that it was something that I needed for my collection. I already love the MAC Paint Pots but I only have 'Soft Ochre', so I wanted one that I could use for more than just an eye shadow base. What I've heard about this Paint Pot is that it's a really great product to just swipe on the eyes and go. It's a beautiful, peachy, champagne shade that adds a really subtle sheen to the eye.
|MAC Lipstick in 'Kinda Sexy'|
I'm typically very picky about lipsticks, especially neutral shades. I have a really hard time finding a neutral, every day shade since most are too light, too nude, or to pink. I have pretty pigmented lips so most nude shades look really weird on me. I've found some good neutral lip shades like MAC 'Shy Girl' and NARS 'Barbarella', but I wanted something a little bit more dusty rather than peachy. I recently saw some beauty gurus rave about 'Kinda Sexy' and after looking at some more swatches online, I decided to give it a try. I purchased this thinking I'd most likely return it, since I'm so picky. But as soon as I swiped it on my lips, I fell in love. It's a matte lipstick, but surprisingly, it isn't drying. It's a neutral, dusty rose shade that is basically a "my-lips-but-better" kind of shade. It's a good change of pace from my usual peachy, coral lip. I wore this in my most recent 'Outfit & Face of the Day' post.
