When You Give Me A Gift Card To MAC….

Gift Card To MACGift Card To MACyou know I’ll go in there with a list of products. I’ve been meaning to pick up a few items for weeks and a gift card to MAC was the perfect occasion to do just that! First on my list was the Viva Glam V – a neutral pink with a pearl shimmer. I love the concept behind the Viva Glam lipsticks because every cent of the selling price goes towards the MAC Aids Foundation – supporting charity and looking great at the same time? Now that’s what I’m talking about! The lipstick has a luster finish which makes it apply a bit sheer but you can build it up nicely. I was looking for a new nude lipstick because the other one I have – Cherish, a true peachy beige – is too beige for me sometimes. The Viva Glam V is a great alternative because it carries more pink tones while still keeping it neutral to my lip color.

After the lipstick comes the lip liner. I’ve had my eye on the color Dervish because it’s a beautiful rose toned neutral color that pairs perfectly with Viva Glam V. Dervish intensifies the lipstick and makes it look more vibrant on the lips.

Gift Card To MACThe last product I picked up is one of their eye brow pencils in the color Lingering. I love my Bobbie Brown cement eye shadow but I wanted a pencil for when I travel later this month. It’s a soft taupe brown that matches my hair color and applies like a dream. I use soft strokes while going through my brows as it’s a very opaque color. I’ve been wearing it the past two days and let me tell you, that color isn’t going anywhere. It’s super long lasting – I wore it while running two miles (don’t judge) – and it didn’t smudge at all.
