I feel like beauty posts have been missing for quite some time from my blog and I really want to bring them back and write about makeup more often. To be honest, I haven't really bought a lot of makeup lately, which is one of the reasons why I haven't really felt inspired to write about it. I think I've just always been one of those people who's more into fashion than beauty. That being said, I've been tempted for quite some time to take a trip to my local MAC store and purchase a little something for myself, and I finally decided to do it - actually, my fiance took me there and got me these lipsticks as an early birthday present (my birthday's not til October though). I walked out of the store with a big smile on my face, since I don't really splurge on beauty products very often - and there's something about MAC lipsticks that's really exciting, maybe it's the fact that they feel so luxurious (at least to me) or the fact that they're such a nice formula or the lovely typical MAC lipstick-scent that they have.
As for the colours I got, I decided to pick two shades that I've been really wanting to add to my collection for quite some time and I'm really excited to wear them. I went for a classic nude shade, which I think will be perfect for daily wear and simple, light makeup looks - Creme Cup. This is a nude, pink, blue-toned lipstick and I can see myself wearing it a lot on a daily basis. The second shade I picked up is Faux, which is more of a mauve - but still nude - lipstick. I love that it's a wearable colour, even though it's a bit darker than the usual nude shades that lipsticks come in. I think it's the perfect autumn shade for me, and it will go perfectly with burgundy scarves and monochrome looks. Can you tell I'm excited for fall?! Haha! :)
I am really happy with the colours I picked and I will definitely be doing some makeup looks featuring these, so if you'd like to see how they look on, then stay tuned for my future blogposts.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!
