Mac creme cup and ruby woo lipstick

I also picked up mac creme cup and ruby woo lipstick on my visit to mac on Wednesday. ($15 ea)
 I'm not the one to wear red, it's really rare when I actually do, since red tends to look too dramatic on me I tend to stay away from reds, but ruby woo is definitely different, it's described as a very matte vivid blue-red lipstick. It is in fact drying since its very matte, but it isn't too bold so it can definitely pass as every day red lip color, I would totally repurchase this lip color.
Creme cup is described as a light blue pink color, it is a cremesheen, which I love (they are moisturizing and nicely pigmented).it is a very neutral blue pink that can be paired with a smokey this lip color, again I would totally repurchase.

Mac essentials haul: part 2

To continue on my mac essential haul.
I was in desperate need of a berry toned blush and a muted pinky plum blush, as well as oil control and I pick up mac powder blushes in mocha and fever. I also picked up mac oil control lotion and haute and naughty mascara.

1: macs powder blush in mocha and fever ($20 ea). Mocha is described as a pinky plum color it is a matte finish blush which I love, as for fever it is described as a intended reddish Burgundy color that is as well a matte finish blush. Mocha is pretty muted on my skin tone so it isn't too bold and more of a everyday blush. fever it's more of a berry toned blush on my skin tone, since it is in fact intense in pigmentation and application it can totally be applied lightly for a berry flush look and heavy for intense drama. Left: mocha, right: fever. (Swatches) left to right fever (heavy swatch then blended), mocha (heavy then blended)

2: mac oil control lotion 1oz bottle ($15): described as a lightweight lotion, ment to control oily problem areas this lotion is a staple, without it my foundation would look messy, this lotion kept my t-zone in place all day and blended week with my foundation, so it didn't look like I had all these products on.
To to bottom: small drop and then blended (which you may not really see). I totally recommend this product is you have oily skin, sensitive skin (lightweight).

3: mac haute and naughty mascara ($20): this two in one mascara is definitely like Dr Jekyll and mr Hyde. When you remove the pink top, it provides little amount of mascara for a natural look. When you remove the glittery purple top, it provides lots of mascara for a bold dramatic look.
This is the haute side (pink top)

This is the naughty side (glittery purple top)

My mac essentials haul. (Face products) part:1

Hello my sexy blog fans, sorry it took me soo long for a posting, I have had a rough couple of weeks. I back now with a great posting and review on a couple of mac permanent items that I picked up on Wednesday.
First off I have to admit that before these products I did not own anything of mac aside from they're lipsticks.

1: mac studio sculpt foundation in nc42($30); this foundation is described as a full coverage gel based foundation. I have oily combo, acne prone skin so I wanted something that was more matte. This foundation is great it provides a natural semi matte finish, so it isn't totally drying. It is now my #1favorite foundation, #2 is loreal visible lift repair absolute, I use sun beige, #3 is loreal lumi foundation in sun beige. (Left to right; mineralized concealer and studio sculpt)
 (Top to bottom; foundation blended, a dab of the foundation)
2: mac mineralized concealer in nc42 ($20): this is a creamy concealer, I have Rosacea on my chin and cupids bow so this area is very dry, some  concealer a tend to look cakes and blotchy on my chin, this concealer is total heaven it is light weight, provides amazing coverage and doesn't cake on or look cakey after a few hours of wear. I definitely recommend this concealer if you have Rosacea, dry skin, or sensitive skin as it does not irritate.(lots of thing irritate my skin cause of its sensitivity, I know what it's like) (left to right; heavy swatch, blended)

3: mac bronzing powder in matte bronze ($24) and Mac mineralized skin finish in soft and gentle ($29). Matte bronze is described as a bare shouldered bronze, it isn't too dark, if your looking for a natural looking matte bronzing then this is it, if your looking for a darker bronzer I suggest you try bronze instead. This bronzer isn't too pigmented, then again I only tried it once since I just purchased it but it is a bit stiff. I may have to break it in. Soft and gentle is described a a gilded peach bronze , but personally I thinks it's more of a golden pewter color, it's looks like a pale golden pink on my skin tone. This msf is a staple in my vanity, it's great for highlighting the cheek bones and the bridge of the nose. I even found a great way to use this amazing powder from a mac artist, she sprayed a brush with macs fix it spray and applied soft and gentle wet to the center of my lid and it provided a beautiful effect with my dark charcoal smokey eye.
