Back track to the Thursday before last and I thought it would be a good idea to pop into MAC on my lunch break to pick up a new mascara. This date coincided with the release of the new collections, so naturally I had to take a look. Now before I go any further I will mention that I did have a slight fever at the time so wasn’t quite with it…
This is my excuse as to why I bought a lipglass when they are probably my must hated lip gloss, when the SA tried the tester on me it didn’t feel sticky, I thought wow maybe they have changed the formula, well no they haven’t and whilst Perennial High Style is a pretty very sheer non shimmered pinky coral it is indeed very sticky/tacky. I also suddenly decided I needed a new makeup bag for the weekend and how lucky that they had some with the new collection, I didn’t ask the price and they didn’t have them out on display so I could only see it in the wrapper, in hindsight had I realised it was £24 and had no inside pattern (not sure why this bothers me but it does) I don’t think I would have got this.
I also got the lipstick in Ever Hip which is a nice sheer coral with a touch of pink and the beauty powder in shell Pearl which is a very luminous peachy pink with a gold sheen, on my pale skin it does have rather an intense glow so can look a bit over done. I also picked up a greasepaint stick in Dirty which is a very dark taupe with shimmer, unless I am doing something very wrong I find this flakes and goes on a bit patchy, I think I’ll have to keep trying with this one!
So although an unexpected haul, it wasn’t too disastrous considering it’s probably the first time I have gone makeup shopping when I felt slightly delirious.
