MAC Lipstick Blush Haul post

Yes you may think that this is a post featuring pretty homewares and some crafty ideas, but sorry to disappoint- this does, in fact, involve makeup.

You  might know that I try to venture back to my home town regularly that, unlike the town I live in, houses many malls, city life and high end makeup stores that I cannot find here- so it has to be a given that I shop when I go back to visit my family, right? Right.

I thought I would show you some of the pieces that I brought while back home- I may have another haul coming involving more fashion items, but since that is not my forte I’ll stick with the cosmetics for now, eh.

MAC is one of those brands that will always have something on my wishlist. There is a store back home and so whenever I’m close I’ll pop in to have a look. There are two areas of my makeup collection that I want to expand on, these being blushes and lipsticks- Mac Lipsticks in particular.  It didn’t take me long to seek out these beauties, and I got my lipstick free for my empty eyeshadow cases so snaps for me

I ended up purchasing MAC Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour in Relaxation which is a lightweight and super creamy warm pink multi-use product. I use this as a cream blush which gives off the perfect glowy, dewy complexion but you are also able to swipe a bit on your lips for a light my-lips-but-prettier pink.

MAC Lipstick in Twig was the lippy I went with from the small selection I could choose for trading in my eyeshadow pots- a satin finish that is the perfect rosy, muted but deep pink.  I am totally in love, smitten, I tell you.

      Thank you very much Emma!

    • Thank you very much! I really appreciate that!

  • I haven’t tried either of the MAC products you purchased here but I’m certainly going to be adding Twig to my wishlist! Have you tried MAC Syrup? It is my favourite lipstick even though it is quite boring in the tube. xx

    • I use twig almost daily, Syrup was one I looked at at the same time as twig and added it to my wishlist then and there- that and one other pinkish cult shade that slips my mind at the moment…. I’ll be making a trip back again soon!

  • That is such an amazing combo together!! Will have to get my hands on them both.
