New from MAC and FOTD + Outfit Preview

MAC has always been one of my favorite brands not only because it's quite affordable, but also because it has a wide range of colors and textures. I already own some of their products and I'm pleased with the quality, so I had been wanting to get some more items for a long time. When I got an opportunity to shop there, I decided on four things, three of which I'm going to show you today. They were out of the fourth item, a lipstick, so they had to order it for me. I'll update the post or something when I get it.



I hear a lot of good things about MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder, so I decided to give it a try. The color match is perfect - I have it in Light Plus, and I really like its buttery texture and the amount of coverage it gives without feeling heavy on the skin. I was also impressed by its staying power - I've had it since 1 pm today, and it's almost 11 pm right now, and it still looks nice and satiny, not oily at all!

The second thing I got was Mineralize Blush in Gentle. It's very pigmented, so if you are as pale as I am, I'd recommend applying it very carefully. It's a pretty berry color with gold shimmer, which transforms to a lovely sheen on the skin. I love the color in the pan, but I feel like it's too dark for me and also brings out the redness in my face, so I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it. What do you guys think?





And finally, my favorite product has to be this Cremesheen Lipstick in Peach Blossom from the Cremesheen + Pearl collection for Fall 2012. It's a rosy nude color, and I don't see any cool or warm undertones in it, so I'd guess it would suit anyone. It's a perfect everyday color as it goes well with just everything. It also has multicolor shimmer, which is not visible on the lips; however, it gives a nice sheen. By the way, I like the Cremesheen formula in MAC lipsticks the best as it's creamy, shiny, and moisturizing. And what's your favorite formula?

So here are some FOTD pictures using these products. I don't have any foundation on, just the Mineralize Skinfinsh Natural and a little bit of concealer dotted on some areas. As you can see, the coverage is just right without looking thick or cakey.



You can also see a tiny bit of the top part of my outfit I wore today, so the next post is going to be about the full OOTD.

What are your favorite products from MAC or products you'd like to try?

  1. Hey you! Thanks for your lovely comment! I like your blog a lot! I love MAC products, but they are more expensive here in Belgium, so it's hard to afford for a student like me.
    I'm following you now and I'm looking forward to your new posts :)

    love, Joana

  3. Love the MAC blush colour! How lovely :)
    I don't have a MAC near me so whenever I see one in London or anywhere else I tend to do a bit over the top with buying...

    1. Спасибо! давно хотела попробовать карандаш Coffee.
      Я тоже пробовала face&body, он отлично наслаивается, но все-таки он для беспроблемной кожи.

  22. Your skin looks flawless. My favorite setting powder from MAC is their loose prep and prime. It lasts throughout the whole day and you only need a little bit, plus it photographs well.
