A few days before my wedding, I was crying because my skin was horrible. It was dry, flaky, red, wrinkly and my makeup looks chalky when applied.
I told my fiancé (then) to move the wedding date for another month so that my skin can finally adjust to the cold weather.
But he had a better solution. He said he’ll buy me new makeup.
So a day before the wedding, we went to Macy’s and went straight ahead to the Mac counter.
Prior to that day, I have always loved Mac. I tried their lipsticks, eyeshadows and mascara before. But I always want to know my foundation shade. The Mac consultant said I’m NC30 for my foundation and Medium Plus for my powder. She used a Moisture Infusion Serum Primer together with the Mineralize Moisture SPF15 Foundation. She tapped a bit of Mineralize Skinfinish Powder on my t-zone then spritzed Charged Water all over my face.
Magic! No redness. No chalkiness. I was ready to get married!
My husband said that I could buy everything that was used on me. (🎶Angels we have heard on high🎶)
The consultant said that I should also try their brush cleaner.
A month after the purchase, I returned the brush cleaner because it didn’t seem to work when I used it for the first time. Lesson: always keep your receipts.
Here what’s left from my Mac haul, approximately 2 months after the purchase with a bit of my two cents.
What’s your favorite Mac product?
