So recently I ventured into the MAC shop on one of my Friday evening shopping sprees.
I primarily went to repurchase my trusty studio fix foundation. This time I decided to get studio sculpt and I got a tube rather than a compact. More product for your money (at least in my head anyway).
I also realised *shockhorror* that I only own 1 MAC lipstick, which I never use as a) it is a vibrant red colour (Ruby Woo) which I would not really wear on a daily basis and am still unsure of and b) it has a matte finish which is really drying on my lips.
As everyone needs a good MAC lipstick in their life, I decided to buy one. I kept picking up the 'velvet teddy' (or something like that!) shade, but my friend advised that it didn't suit my skin colour. It was a kind of nude colour with brown undertones, which I've been drawn too recently.
Instead, I got this one:
*Faux lipstick £13.50
*Studio sculpt foundation in NC15 £23.00
*Brush cleanser- £8
So the foundation is pretty close to my 'perfect' foundation (though I'm still on the lookout for any other goodies...I'm considering trying Nars Sheer Glow next). I get it in NC15, which is almost perfect for my skin tone. It is quite thick and heavy (for me) and gives a good coverage. I can't help thinking that it is maybe more of a 'night out' foundation due to the coverage, but I still like it! My skin doesn't seem to be complaining too much, but that may be down to Liz Earle. Since I've been using the hot cloth cleanser, my ever present skin spots have diminished and my dry skin is feeling more hydrated! Definitely repurchasing.
Last MAC thing, the brush cleanser. Does what it says on the box really. I found it a bit fiddly and I found that I needed quite a lot of fluid to cleanse one brush, but it did the job and left my brushes feeling nice and soft and clean. All you can ask for really!
What's your favourite MAC lipstick shade? Any recommendations for a pale skin tone? (I'm loving lipsticks at the moment!) xx
