NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Mini Mac Haul

Part 1 of my payday haul, Me and Gee stopped by Mac on Saturday morning and I picked up two items I'd been after for quite a while, even though I'd originally planned to go in there for more of an impulse purchase, I'm glad I bought something I will use on a daily basis.
(Hue by Mac and Nylon Eye Shadow)
Hue is a massive must have if you're a Mac lover, I've been hearing for ages now about how it suits most skin tones, and couldn't quite believe it. I was told that about shy girl and a few others and they all turned out to look horrible on me. Hue is actually everything I wanted Cream Cup to be, its not as bright and is just slightly more nude and I love it! You definitely need a good lip scrub before applying it as it can easily highlight dry patches and it does need to be reapplied quite often so it's not as low maintenance as the Revlon lip butters. But I really love it and its running close second to my lip butter in creme brulee.

I picked up Nylon after reading about it on Caterinas blog (link here - definitely give her blog a read, I love it!), she spoke about it working really well for an inner corner highlight. I have an MUA pearl shade that I use at he moment, but it's far too powdery and doesn't look soft and smooth around the eye at all. This one does look soft and smooth and you only need the tiniest amount to highlight. Double thumbs up on that one!

What are your must haves from Mac? I love knowing what works for everyone as it's quite subjective, I'm particularly interested in highlighters if anyone has any good recommendations?

Love Suz x

  1. Nice purchases, I'm a big fan of Hue too - I don't think I've ever read about someone disliking it actually! My must haves are their eyeshadows in Espresso (for my brows) and Satin Taupe (because it is just so pretty!). I love Russian Red lipstick too, it's perfect for a night out as it's dramatic and long-lasting. Oh, and Mineralize Skinfinish Natural! I've repurchased that so many times now! x

  3. I've been toying whether to get Shy Girl or Hue and I just can't decide! My MAC must haves are definitely Satin Taupe eye shadow (perfect for all over the lid) and their lipstick in Ravishing (gorgeous matte peach).

    1. I have Ravishing already, it is a lovely one but I think I overlook it quite a lot!

  4. Been wanting Hue for ages but wasn't sure about whether to get that or Shy Girl! I have to check it out for my skin tone. Wanting Hue more now though ;) my must haves are naked lunch, satin taupe and quarry eye shadows. Love them so much. I also love Well Dressed blush - such an easy to wear colour!

    1. I actually have quarry already, it's so nice! I'm quite interested in well dressed as Tanya Burr talks about it quite a bit!

  5. Hue is the next one on my list! It's so gorgeous though when I swatched it looks quite sheer? Ahh, but it's beautiful!

    1. It's not amazingly pigmented, if you want hue but with more colour I would definitely recommend cream cup. But it is quite buildable if you want a bit of colour.

  7. I actually used to hate Hue lipstick but it's starting to grow on me, I think I just didn't like the glaze formulation and how sheer it is, plus I have to be a little bit careful with it because I'm super pale and it can wash me out if I don't play up my eyes and cheeks. Shy Girl is perfect for me though, the peachy colour warms up my super pale complexion and seems to go with everything!

    Nylon is definitely on my wishlist! Especially since Tanya Burr is always talking about it.

    My Mac must have's are Woodwinked, All That Glitters, Satin Taupe and Charcoal Brown eyeshadows and Coffee eye kohl. Loveeeee them!

    1. I understand what you mean, it isn't for everyone like some people say, but it quickly tried it in the store (even if I hated it it's not the same as trying something majorly pigmented) and loved it. I 100% agree that the cheeks should be played up with this and it will look lovely!

  9. You simply MUST get MAC's CCB in Hush, such the perfect highlight. I use it on almost everyone! Good purchases there though :)
