A few weeks ago I went shopping & thought I’d pop over to MAC as I hadn’t been there or checked it out in actual ages! I knew I wanted to get a good concealer brush so I headed straight to a MAC MUA & got my hands on the 224 – a brush which is highly spoken about in both the e-world & ‘real’ world! On my way out I spotted an ombre blush but couldn’t be bothered to go back & all that malarky. So, you know the drill. I went home & ordered it… along with 2 extra lipsticks!
I never have any problems with using the MAC website, their shipping or customer service which is a plus when shopping online. I actually forgot the feeling of buying MAC products because I hadn’t done it since last summer! It felt so good getting these I got the following:
- 244 Tapered Blending/Concealer Brush £22 HERE
- Azalea Blossom (limited edition) £20.50 HERE
- Overtime Pro Longwear Lipcreme £16.50 HERE
- Good To Go Pro Longwear Lipcreme £16.50 HERE
This is the beautiful Azalea Blossom blush. It’s from the Daphne Guinnes collection – it was also released last year in the Spring Colour Forecast. I’m SO glad I got my hands on this as I didn’t manage to get a hold of this last year It’s got a lovely lilac tone with a hint of shimmer which you can’t detect on your cheeks. It gives my cheeks a perfect pink flush of colour. Great for everyday wear but with LE products I always feel like I can’t use them too much in case I can never get a hold of them again!
Here are some swatches. As you can see, Azalea Blossom is a gorgeous colour. I’m sure it’s easily dupeable but I love having an ‘OMBRE‘ blush
‘Overtime’ & ‘Good To Go’ were the two Pro Longwear Lipcremes I picked up purely because I was intrigued to try them. I do love pinks & red-orange colours which is why I picked these. They are really nice, colour wise, with great colour pay off in just one layer! They have almost a semi-silk-matte finish with quite a soft, smooth feel to your lips but tend to feel a little on the dry side after a few hours.
They are £3 more expensive than the usual MAC lipsticks. They last roughly 6 hours on me before wearing off, which is fairly long. If I don’t eat or drink as much throughout the day I’m sure they’d last longer! The colours aren’t anything special, I’m sure you can get normal MAC lip sticks with a very similar finish.
Would I buy the Pro Longwear Lipcremes again? My answer is MAYBE! Depends what I feel like with it on, what it looks like on & if it’s a colour that MAC don’t do in their lipstick range. If you’re after a MAC lipstick which lasts longer & don’t mind spending the extra £3, these are your best bet!
Last but not least I finally got my hands on the 224. A full review & comparison coming soon
Have you lovelies bought anything from MAC recently? I caved in & bought 2 more lipsticks which I’ll be blogging about very soon!
