Another Mac trip....

Ok so I need to admit that I have the "Mac bug" that seems to rear its head when you start using your first Mac products. After my first trip into mac I have to admit I have become hooked on the products and they really do live up to the hype, well the ones that I have no experienced have.




I picked up a foundation sample of the Mineralised foundation in NW25 on my first trip and after using it I decided that I would prefer something a little less "dewy". I also noticed that the NW25 was fine colour wise but only if I had just applied fake tan. After talking to my friend Michelle about it (shes a MUA) she suggested that I go for NW22 because she thought that NW20 would be too pale for me and also suggested the Studio Fix Fluid. Now I LOVE THIS foundation it applies nicely, stays put all day for me and does not look "cakey".  Thanks Michelle :)


The next thing on my list was to try a Mineralised Skin Finish and I bought medium plus, no idea why really! I like a powder and it does the job its supposed to. My only problem with it is that it is rather "powdery" and a lot gets flicked off when the brush goes across the product.


Finally I was looking for a dupe for my favourite lipstick by Avon which has been discontinued now (GRRR) and I found it within Mac's Speed Dial. Such a lovely wearable pink that lasts for ages. Love it and will always make sure I have one.

  1. I need another MAC trip! I find a little goes a long way with the MSFN-literally one dab of the brush 3 times (forehead, nose/chin, then cheeks) is more than enough.

  2. What's the story with the NW22? I've heard of a few odd numbers like that, do you know are they always available? I think I'm between NW15 and NW20
