MAC all it's cracked up to be?

Thursday, 20 May 2010

Okay, so I haven't exactly been keeping up with this blogging business have I?! I apologise - I've been stressing with essays and hand-in dates (yawn) but luckily all that is finito now and I can get back to doing what I love; writing about fashion and makeup!

Recently I have been developing a serious obsession with makeup. It's actually getting a little out of hand - I'm spending hours on Youtube watching makeup tutorials and then rushing out to buy whatever products are recommended. But seriously, why not? I love it, even if some of the products aren't as great as I'd imagined, it's fun experimenting and trying new things out. Recently I've been obsessing over MAC - I've never really tried any of their products until recently, and I must say I love them. I can see me spending a lot of money on them!

I bought the faaaaaaaabulous Viva Glam Gaga lipstick after it (finally!) came back in stock. It isn't as bright as I orginally thought it would be, but I like this as it makes it more wearable. It also is sooo nice on my lips, doesn't dry them out at all. I'll hopefully get some pictures of it on up here soon, but right now I'm lacking in a decent camera... sorry folks! For now heres a promo pic...

Beautiful isn't it?

UPDATE: I managed to get hold of a camera so I've taken a pic with the lovely lippy on... this is after applying a few coats:

Not too shabby eh?

I also got one of MAC's many eyeshadows (my first ever one!) in the shade Woodwinked. Now I must say, when I first put it on I was like "Woooow it looks so expensive and nice" (which it is) but to be honest I'm not sure if I'm THAT impressed with it. I know people go mad over MAC eyeshadows and I wanted to know what the fuss was all about, so I was a tad disappointed. It's not that I don't like the product, it's just it's very expensive (£11 a pop!) and it does look veeeeeery similar to some of my much cheaper eyeshadows (I'm talking No. 17, Barry M etc.). I'm sticking with it though, and I probably will buy more in the future, I'm just not going to rush out and buy loads of them!

Anyway, that's all for now.... I'm going to be blogging LOTS from now on, so see you soon!
