I could die I’m so happy!!!
When I got back from Enschede I took the train to Utrecht in stead of going passed Den Bosch. Just a quick explanation for people who are not familiar with the cities in the Netherlands. In Utrecht there is a MAC counter and in Den Bosch there isn’t. For this post it’s all you need to know
The MAC counter in Utrecht is right next to the train station so I could not resist not going. It so happens that the MAC semi-precious collection came in store that day. I wanted to see those for myself and I wanted to go and buy my first MAC products. I had already asked a lot of people advice on twitter as to what I should get from MAC. Most of the advice was to start out with some neutral items. I also started watching some videos on youtube to see what kinds of lipstick shades and eyeshadow colors there where. I found the channel of EZbeautynews and she did a video on her MAC lipsticks. When I saw this I fell in love with the See Sheer lipstick and the Hug Me lipstick. I know you cant tell colors that well from video, but when I saw them in the store they where the exact color as they where in the video. If any of you are looking for some good color swatches of MAC lipsticks, go and watch this video. These are just her own lipsticks by MAC, but I love how she swatches them on her lips and not on her hand to show the color and how she puts the names in the corner while she shows the color.
The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.
Now I will put up some pictures of the lipsticks and the packaging. Bare with me because these are my first swatches I have photographed so I am not sure about the colors quiet yet.
If you click on the pictures you can see the lager image.
I Also decided to pick up 2 eyeshadows. One was going to be an all over lid color and the other a darker crease color. Originally I wanted All That Glitters, but unfortunately that was sold out. So I got Arena, which is similar but only slightly darker en without shimmer. The darker color was going to be either Copperplate, Woodwinked or Espresso. When I was in the store I saw that Espresso was the best match for Arena so I chose that one so I could make a complete look with my MAC shadows.
And last but deffinately not least I got the Mineralized blush from the semi-precious collection in Warmth of Coral
This Blush has the most amazing warm color like you could have after laying in the sun for a very long time, and the sun didn’t burn you but you are flushed from the heat of the sun.
After I swatched and photographed everything I got around to playing with my new goodies and made this beautyful look using both eyeshadows, the blush and the lipstick in Hug Me. I also want to add that I am completely in love with the way the lipsticks smell. Everyone has always said that they smell like vanilla, but that can be a good or a bad thing. Let me tell you, in this case it’s a good thing for me. I smells to me like a creamy candy type of vanilla which I love!
