Today’s review features an oldie but a goodie: a product that I used up, repurchased, but just never had gotten round to reviewing just yet. What can I say: it happens. I’m talking about one of my favorite powders on the make up market. I discovered the MAC Prep+Prime Transarent Finishing Powder when my Mineralized Skin Finis no longer sufficed. I had moved work in an office building with a lot of AC and my make up looked horrible after just a few hours into my workday. The problem: the powder. So I went to MAC and asked for a suggestion and this is what they came up with. Here’s why I love it enough to have given this another whirl.

When you buy 3 lipsticks from different brand, but they all fit the same look and feel, what do you do? Yes, you lump them together into one review. I did pick all of these up around the same time though, but just hadn’t gotten around to the review just yet. I bought these in London last year, but since the Maybelline and Bourjois lipsticks only made their way into our drugstores here fairly recently, I decided this was the best time to post.

I currently own 20 MAC lipsticks. That is more than enough and means I have a little bit of everything. Since I like where my MAC lipstick collection now stands, I thought it was time for me to show you how all of these shades look on. This means that without further ado, I present to you: my MAC lipstick swatch video. Please watch, my lips will be very very thankful ;-).

Happy Monday everybody! Today’s blog post will feature 4 stunning MAC lip products that will be great for fall time. I’m talking about a brown lip, a purple/ pink and a deep, deep red with a matching lip pencil. In short, three shades that work for fall, but each has its own effect and will suit different looks and needs. Let’s have a closer look at Whirl, Flat Out Fabulous, Sin & Currant.

If there is one brand whose lipstick I love it would be MAC. I remember the days when everyone was raving about their favorite colors and you weren’t part of the beauty community if 50% of your make up collection wasn’t MAC. Boy, how times have changed. But MAC lipsticks are still getting a lot of love and I decided to expand my MAC lipstick collection a little bit further, with a few shades that I think are perfect for fall. Meet my new babies.
Relentlessy Red (Retro Matte)
Back in the day, when I first found the online beauty community and started this blog, almost 6 years ago, THE brand everyone raved about was MAC. So when I first started my own make up endeavor back in 2008/2009, MAC was the first make up brand I truly decided to invest in. Hence the extensiveness of my MAC make up collection being quite vast. I thought I’d show you all the MAC bits I have.

A few weeks ago I showed you my updated MAC palette. I chose to purchase a new palette and a few additional shadows. I already showed you the palette, but not the shadows. So that’s what we will be doing today. I went with 4 shades that would go well with the rest of the palette. Meet Honey Lust, Corduroy, Embark and Beauty Marked.
