MAC Haul: Much needed basics

May 12, 2010
There are quite a few basic MAC items that I have been needing for a while so I figured I might as well pick some of the items up while I was at the mall the other day, plus it was pay day.
I picked up a new eyeshadow palette since all my other ones are completely full. Quite an accomplishment if you ask me.
I decided to skip the Art Supplies Collection all together because I didn’t feel I needed anything from that collection and the only thing I really wanted from the Pret-a-Papier Collection was the Chromagraphic Pencil so I picked that up in NC15/NW20.
This pencil is quite the multi-tasker. I’ve been using it as a spot concealer on small red dots or blemishes on my face. It also works great on the lower waterline to make your eyes appear bigger and making you look more alert and awake. It also works great to define the brow by shading it in with a similar colored eyeshadow and then using the Chromagraphic Pencil to outline the brow and then blend out the harsh lines. This makes the brow look more defined and “perfect”.
The Lip Conditioner Stick is another must have that I had been wanting to buy for awhile. It is the lip conditioner, which I love, but in a stick form so it’s easier to carry around for when I need to moisturize my lips on the go. It smells of yummy vanilla and keeps my lips feeling soft and smooth.
One of MAC’s most popular Lipglass shades is Nymphette and is a beautiful sheer pink gloss with gold reflects. I’ve had it before and I used it almost daily but I ran out of it a long time ago and for some reason just never replaced it. So I decided to re-buy it since it’s a such a great color that goes with just about everything.
I figured I should buy at least one brush so I decided to get the 252 Large Shader Brush. It works great for packing on shadows all over the lid and allows for excellent color pickup.
And I had to get some eyeshadows, of course. So I picked up Gesso (matte white), Free to Be (matte coral), Paradisco (shimmery peach), Sushi Flower (shimmery pink) and Woodwinked (shimmery tan brown) all in PRO Pans.
