MAC Shopping

Hello everyone!!

As the title of today’s post would suggest, I did a bit of shopping on the MAC Cosmetics website. It started with a YouTube video that I happened to come across one night, a few months ago. I was browsing a few videos on a channel called The Daily Mix and Tanya Burr was doing different celebrity style makeup looks on different women. One that stuck out to me was a Kate Middleton inspired look. As she was describing the shades of the eyeshadows she was using I knew they were right up my alley. All on the cool toned side with hints of purples and some darker smokey grey’s, all by MAC.

After a couple months of those particular shades on my mind, I finally placed an order. Where I live, there isn’t a MAC store or counter so all my MAC shopping has to be done online (or on vacation). Since there were four shades, I purchased them in single pans and also an empty quad palette to house them in together. The shades I purchased are Vex, Shale, Black Tied and Print. They all look very pretty together and I’m happy I finally purchased them.

While on the website I picked up a few other goodies that had also been on my mind. Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipglass, Eye Kohl in Teddy and the Eye Brows pencil in Lingering.

I’m looking forward to using these products. As I’ve already mentioned, the shadows are really pretty. The brow pencil is a great match for my brows, Teddy is a classic and very popular eye kohl shade and the Lipglass is a shimmery baby pink gloss that I love.

I’m looking for some ideas for a warm toned quad. What are your favourite warm shadows from MAC? Swiss Chocolate is one shade I keep thinking about…

Have a wonderful day everyone! Thanks for reading!

  1. As soon as you mentioned Kate Middleton I knew you’d be picking up Shale. It’s her signature shade! I believe she wore that on her wedding day (she even did her own makeup!) I love Vex – it was one of my very first MAC eye shadows.

    1. She’s my fav, I love her makeup (and her)! Vex and Shale are going to definitely be getting a ton of use. Vex is so pretty, I didn’t realize looking online how pretty it really is!
      Thanks for the recommendations! I’m making my list for the warm palette. There’s so many shades, it’s hard to pick!


  2. I love MAC I almost always go a little crazy and have to calm myself before I check out either in store or online. Great classic and staple item selection. Can’t wait to see what you do with it!
