MAC Lovin’

MAC Makeup Haul
There’s nothing like the feeling of falling in love… or the feeling of receiving your makeup order through the post. For me, they are basically the same feeling. Easily pleased, huh! I haven’t ordered from the MAC Cosmetics website in the longest time – in fact, I didn’t even have a wish list as long as my arm until recently. I always wait till I qualify for free delivery (doesn’t take long, let’s be honest!) before ordering anything from there, so when I bumped up more order, ultimately spending more than I intended to… I then pressed confirm before I came to my senses. It was a magical moment, I must say.

The first item I virtually popped into my basket was a powder blush; I’d seen it before and didn’t think anything of it and it was only when I saw some swatches online I decided to bite the bullet and try it. Say hello to Melba.  This is a warm toned blush and actually, not something I would normally go for at all. I feel inclined to say it’s almost a dark peach colour with the tiniest touch of pink in there. It’s a matte finish; my personal favourite in powder blushes and overall, looks really quite lovely on the cheeks. I have a feeling this will look even better with a tan; but just the tiniest bit for when I’m pale adds a much needed warmth to my cheeks. 
The last two items are lipsticks… yes, uh-oh, my makeup weakness! Due to my ongoing nude affair, I picked up quite a popular nude in the world of makeup, Shy Girl. Now when this arrived, I actually wasn’t sure of it, it looked a little too dark for my personal liking (damn you dodgy google swatches) but actually, when I applied it, it’s really lovely and I think if this was any lighter; it would wash me out too much. It’s a beautiful ‘my lips but better’ nude with a tiny dash of orange in there; all-in-all makes for a beautiful, but not your typical nude. As this is a creemsheen finish (one of my fav’s), this is creamy and isn’t crazy drying. I still add lip balm for extra comfort though! 
Lastly, I ordered Lady Danger after hearing sooo much people rave about this; I knew I had to add it to my collection and boy, am I glad I did. Just opening the lid, it’s beauty blinds you and wearing it; honestly? I don’t think I’ve found a better red lipstick before, there’s no two ways about it. This is a matte finish; not my favourite but I think a matte red lip looks beautiful and I personally wouldn’t have it any other way. Beautiful and in my opinion, a must have from MAC! 
Have you ordered anything from MAC recently? If so, what is it?! Mainly so I can add it on my wish list..
