This weekend I made a trip to Mac to pick up some concealer as I'd run out, which is never a good thing. Even more so when you have to go to a wedding the next day and want to look your best throughout it, without re-applying. The Studio Finish concealer is my HG concealer, and during the past two days without it I've noticed how much it actually covers under my eyes and any blemishes... I can't live without it!
I also had 4x empty Studio Fix Foundation bottles and 2x Studio Finish Concealer tubs to take back to the store for the Back 2 Mac program. I really like how Mac is encouraging people to recycle and bring your empties back and in exchange you receive a Lipstick of your choice for free!
Here's what I picked up altogether... the grand total of this mini haul was £27.00 or $45.00!
MAC Matte Lipstick in Pink Plaid
Cost - £0!!
I had this lipstick for free as part of the Back 2 Mac program. I'd be after it for a while as I love this shade. When I tried picking it up from Mac in Spitalfields, they didn't have it in stock, so i'm pleased I managed to pick it up from the Covent Garden Store.
Mac Lip Pencil- Hip n Happy
Cost - £12.00
A new lipstick needs a new lip pencil! I got this one to go perfectly with my Pink Plaid.
Mac Studio Finish Concealer - NC15
Price - £15.00
My HG Concealer. I swear by this for under my eyes and blemish cover. Can't live without it.
Mac Studio Moisture Tint - Light
So i've been thinking about getting a new base product to wear on weekends, or when I might not need such a full coverage. I like the idea of using a tinted moisturiser as a base and then covering up any blemishes I may have with my Studio Fix concealer. I'm looking forward to trying this out!
Mac Prep & Prime BB Beauty Balm - Extra Light
I've heard so many good things about BB creams! I am yet to try one, so thought i'd start off with one from Mac. I'll compare this in terms of coverage to the tinted moisturiser to really see the difference between the two products.
I'm really looking forward to testing these products and creating looks using them!
I'll be back with pics and swatches soon!
