Another MAC Cosmetics Haul (And Swatches)


So, if you read my low-buy post, you would know that I’m attempting to curtail my beauty purchases for the first few months of the year. This haul doesn’t count because I purchased these items last year. Hehe. Now that we’ve cleared that up – let’s get onto another mac cosmetics haul. 🙂

MAC Brush Cleanser: Not much to say about this. It’s a brush cleanser. I think I mentioned this before, but it’s not my favourite. It doesn’t clean deeply enough but I purchase it for convenience more than anything else.

Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation (NC 25): I’ve never tried any of the foundations/powders from MAC and wanted something to keep in my handbag for touch-ups. I’ve only been using it for about a week. It does a decent job of absorbing moderate mid-day oil and adding some coverage. Will keep you guys updated.

Lipsticks: I had neutral and Spring on the brain when choosing lipstick shades. Wonder where I got that idea? 🙂

Impressive (Sheen Supreme): Described by MAC as a Neutral Gilded Plum. This is my first experience with the Sheen Supreme formula and I really like. It’s semi-glossy but has enough weight and body to feel like a lipstick.

See Sheer (Lustre): Described by MAC as a Grapefruit Pink. This was released in the Red, Red, Red Collection but it is permanent.  It’s a lustre which means the coverage is sheer but I really love the subtle pinky red color it adds to the lips.

Fan Fare (Creme Sheen): Described by MAC as a Mid-Tone Yellow Pink. It was a toss up between this and Cream Cup when I was at the counter. In the end, I decided to go for something more pink as opposed to peach. Think it will be a great, every-day color for Spring.

Eye Kohl – Teddy: Described by MAC as an intense bronze. I was looking for something to replace Stila’s Lionfish (featured in yesterday’s empties). This is deeper and more bronze than copper, but it gives a similiar effect on the eyes. A must in everyone’s collection, IMHO. 🙂

That’s it for my Mac Cosmetics Haul. I have a few more bits from last year to haul as well as my picks from the Spring 2015 makeup collections. What do you guys gravitate towards when comes to Spring Makeup? And what have you guys been hauling lately?

      It really is, isn’t it? Do you own it?

  2. Those lipsticks look lovely! Does Teddy have any shimmer in it?

      Yes, there is a little shimmer to Teddy but it doesn’t really come across once it’s on your eyes. You can see it a little in the swatches. 🙂

  3. Ahh this is such a good haul, jealous! Haven’t been to MAC in so long!

      If they are some of your favourites, than I know I made some good choices. So excited to rock Fan Fare in the Spring. 🙂

  5. You got some nice goodies! I love the look of the lippies! Can’t go wrong with MAC lipsticks 🙂

      Thanks, Laura. I’m loving these neutral-ish sort of shades. 🙂

  6. MAC haul, yay! I so want Impressive & Sea Sheer now. I’m already a big fan of Teddy – probably my second fav MAC eye liner after Power Surge. Great picks!

      Power Surge just went on my list! I’ll probably end up at the MAC counter at some point this weekend, so I’ll definitely check it out. I think See Sheer will be so beautiful for Spring! Being a lustre, the coral red comes across more muted making it great to just slap on. 🙂

    Some great choices lovely. I don’t have any of those lipsticks in my collection but I think they may have to make an appearance!

      Definitely. I’m really enjoying the Sheen Supreme formula. They are so great nudes in that line that I hadn’t even known about. 🙂 xo

  7. I love the lipstick colors you picked out. 🙂 xo
