I bought a few things at my recent trip to MAC. I didn’t end up getting any of what I came for, but I did get a couple goodies that have been on my wish list forever! I was going through the lipsticks, picking out all of the colors I already owned.. lol and then I picked up “Creme Cup”, a color I’ve been wanting for a really long time but never really had the chance to view it in person. I didn’t know it was a Cremesheen, which made me extremely iffy, because I do not like the Cremesheen formula at all. All of my Cremesheens have broke.. Either completely smashed, have slanted or melted. It’s not like a Glaze or Luster that goes on smooth.. you have to apply a little pressure to get the color on your lips (at least for me) and you can’t apply too much pressure otherwise your lipstick will tilt. Anyway, I took a chance and got it. AND, I purchased “Like Venus” Dazzleglass. I also dislike dazzleglass because they run out so quickly and the color doesn’t stay on your lips very long, but I thought paired with Creme Cup, it would be very pretty.
I really like Creme Cup. It reminds me of a more intense “Hue”. It’s a very “wearable” pink. And it is really hard for me to find a wearable every day pink. I don’t like pinks that are too cool (have too much of a blue or purple tone to it). I like my pink to be slightly warm, and this one is. 🙂
And last but not least, I purchased the 224 brush! Ever since I saw pixiwoo using this as a concealer brush, I wanted it. I don’t like the regular concealer brush that much that just smears it under your eyes, and I don’t like applying concealer with my fingers because my nails are so long and my concealer will end up in my nails (yuck!) Sooo, I am very happy I bought this. This brush is amazing.. it’s definitely one of my new favorite brushes. It applies my concealer flawlessly and buffs it into my skin so perfect. It’s very dense and it doesn’t smoosh or bend during application. It’s very sturdy. I absolutely love it. Well worth the $28 in my opinion. You can use it for so many things too.. you can use it to highlight areas on your face.. blend your shadows, contour your nose, etc.
That’s all for my MAC haul!
