So I’ve been wanting to buy MAC products for quite awhile now. MAC is considered by some to be the best line in the business but of course it comes with a pretty high price tag. I have done a whole lot of research and decided to finally treat myself to a mini MAC haul.
I let the MAC salesgirl pretty much recommend whichever products she felt would work best for me since this was my first MAC purchase. I wanted a foundation at the very least and after describing my skin type and preference for coverage (dry/minimal coverage), she recommended the newer Prep+Prime BB line. She let me try it on and a was very happy with how it looked on. She matched me with the shade “light plus” but also recommended with any of the other foundation products I would want to go with an NW (15 or 20). I also learned NW stands for neutral to warm! I am really excited to try this product.
I also wanted a setting/finishing powder to try. I’ve never used these before but she used it on my face after the foundation and since it didn’t look cakey or anything, I thought it was worth trying out.
No makeup haul is complete without trying out a new concealer. I knew I wanted to buy a MAC concealer as I have had so much trouble with breakouts lately. Although I think this is a highlighting concealer rather then a minimizing concealer. I’ll give it a shot and find out. I might have to go back for another concealer down the road.
I mentioned to the girl that I wanted to try some eyeshadows too. I thought I would start with a quad. I happened to be at the Nordstrom MAC counter and Nordstrom is having their annual sale right now so she recommended I try this product. It gives you 6 eyeshadows, a blush, bronzer and two lip colors for the same cost. I figure if I really like these naturals I will go back and try out more colors.
When I’m spending this much money on makeup I try to get as many samples as I can without hassling or begging.
She gave me a sample of the StudioSculpt in NW15. She mentioned if this doesn’t work I can come back for NW13.
I’m really excited about trying all these products and hopefully coming out with some new favorites. I’m running out of my favorite foundation (Benefit) and I wanted to find something that would be a really good match to my skin. I think I’ve done that.
