Got me some more MAC!
A block away from the MAC store, I was saying to myself. “Just the highlighter and concealer, just the highlighter and concealer.”
As I approached the counter, I was thinking, “Just the highlighter, concealer and maybe ... an eyeliner. Yeah nothing else. Highlighter, concealer, liner.”
As I was browsing the display, I was saying, “Okay highlighter, concealer, liner and maybe a brush.”
When I left the MAC counter I had a highlighter, concealer, technakohl liner, new brush AND an amplified lip crème. God I have no control!
I received a gift card for Christmas for The Bay because my family knows I love MAC and that is where my counter is located. Plus I told them that was what I wanted HAHA.
So it was burning a hole in my pocket :P Since The Bay cosmetic department was having a $10 off a $75 purchase, I thought it would be a great time to use my giftcard. My intent was to buy $75 get the $10 off and use the $50 GC so I would only spend $15 in total. HAHA I can dream right?
My new babies;
I have wanted the Soft and Gentle Mineralized Skin Finish highlighter for a while now. They had Stereo Rose but I thought I would use Soft and Gentle more often. I love this highlighter! It gives a soft glow to the skin. I have been using it every day.

I have always wanted to try a MAC concealer. After consulting with the MAC MUA, I settled on the Pro Longwear concealer in NW25. It was the best fit for me. The colour seems a little dark in the bottle but it blends out pretty good. I use it for covering up dark spots. I wish it came in a tube like the mineralized concealer as I find I use too much product with the little pump top.

Next up was the Technakohl liner in Auto-de-Bleu, an intense navy blue. I love the Technakohl liners. They are creamy smooth and easy to blend out. Plus it is longwearing for me and I can wear it in my waterline with no problems.

Since I am a brush whore, I just had to get a new brush. I debated between the 239 shader brush and the 275 angled shader brush. I settled on the 275. I only have one other angled shader brush and I really like it so I figured I would go with the MAC one as it was a little bit larger. I like it so much I want another one.
And finally I have been lusting after Craving since I saw someone wearing it. It is a beautiful pink shade that leans towards mauve. It goes on lighter than what it looks like in the tube. The formula of the amplified crème is fantastic; moisturizing and pigmented. It applies so easily and I do not need to use a lip liner with this formula. This is my goto lipstick right now. I think this colour would work for most people.

So that is my MAC haul. My desire got the better of me but I got some pretty good staple MAC products that I will definitely love for the foreseeable future.
It was good thing the Archie Collection wasn’t out that week yet!
