Recently, MAC had 25% off sale for MAC Select Members. You can easily sign up to be a MAC select member. I did that a while ago but took advantage of the sale to grab some MAC goodies. I have quite a few MAC lipsticks but I wanted to explore other popular items from them. I had trouble ordering online and after repeated attempts I emailed them. They asked me to place a manual order which I did. So, I ended up picking up about 4 items and the package arrived at my door within a week.
So the first thing I picked up was the MAC Lipstick in So Select ($17.00). This shade is an exclusive for Select Members. I am not sure if it is available in stores or if it is an online only shade. It is a gorgeous rose nude shade which I absolutely love. I think it will look amazing on so many different skin tones. It has a matte finish which is how I prefer my lip products. But it also feels very comfortable and wears for several hours throughout the day with the exception of after meals. It is currently out of stock online but you can pre-order it!
The MAC powder blush in Burnt Pepper ($23.00) is a dirty tangerine shade with a matte finish. I expected it to be a bit more muted but it turned out to be a little bright. Although it looks intense in the pan, it is quite soft and wearable. It is perfect for the spring time for more warmer skin tones. You definitely need to use a very light hand while dipping your brush into the pan! Less is more with this one.
If you have tried the setting spray from MAC you know it is probably one of the best ones out there. I love using it to set all my makeup in place and intensify my eyeshadow. So when I saw the Coconut scented Fix plus ($12.00), I was over the moon. This is the travel size though but it still is amazing! I like this one slightly more than the original one because of the Coconut scent.
The MAC eye kohl in Costa Riche ($17.00) is a gorgeous rich coffee brown shade. I love using kohl in my waterline almost everyday. One of my first ever products that I purchased was an eye kohl when I started wearing makeup. I have quite a few black shades and I really wanted to add a brown to my collection. I think the quality of this kohl pencil is freaking amazing. The pigmentation is crazy and I love how long it lasts! \
