Unboxing: MAC Wash & Dry Lipstick and Blush

If you’ve seen my previous post where I was announcing giddily the new MAC Wash & Dry collection, it was actually my first time to order MAC products online. I ordered online last Friday so for the last three days, I was, to say the least, restless

The feels…

Alas! It arrived today, on a Tuesday. There’s a mysterious black box right outside my door… And a lot more blackness when you open it.

 

Black is the new Black

I only ordered two products out of the collection. One was a lipstick, that is already sold out online, and the other one is a blush, my first ever MAC blush. Total pocket damage: $44.52 ($2.52 tax).

The Packaging

The tricolor packaging reminds me of their old collection, the Proenza Schouler.

I find the packaging ADORABLE! The green, orange and gold combo of the MAC Wash & Dry collection reminds me of watching the sunset on a beach.

The Lipstick

The lipstick, Tumble Dry, costs $17.50USD.

    

MAC Wash & Dry lipstick in Tumble Dry is a lustre. I am not a fan of MAC lustre lipsticks. I am more of a satin-matte-amplified kind of a MAC girl. But the color of the lipstick looked intriguing online and I don’t have this particular shade yet. I knew that initially I will be disappointed. But in the spirit of “everything is a first time”, I will try to wear this proudly and with an open-mind. It smells like butter and is totally hydrating to the lips so I guess I’m starting to look at it with a glass half-full.

The Blush

The Hipness blush retails at $24.50USD.

No need to look at the glass half full or half empty. The glass is FULL and OVERFLOWING! I am in L❤️VE with this blush. It has a subtle gold shimmer that is not at all offensive. It is outrageously pigmented that even after a few minutes of rubbing it off, the swatch on my arm is still visible.

Overall

I should have gotten more from the collection, seriously. Especially the lipstick, I should have purchased all four! 😂

It will launch in stores on May 21, 2015. But you can easily go to MAC’s website to check this new collection.

It’s an organized chaos and it took several takes to get the perfect image. Whew!

The Perfect Solution: Mac Haul

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.

I really thought an angel was rocking her harp when I heard MAKE-UP

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.

LOVE LOVE LOVE
The damage has been done
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.

The Mac consultant used a spritzer to put this on my face. I was disappointed that it only has a regular lotion-like hole.
I would probably love it, and not just like it, if it has a sponge/poof applicator for an easier on-the-go application
I like the 190 brush because it has the right kind of softness and firmness needed to easily apply a foundation. However, I don’t like the 150 brush because it sheds a lot. Just imagine the awkward conversation you have to make when someone has noticed a small black hair-like on your face!
My new holy grail! It’s the right kind of shade and I don’t look too made-up
Any foundation becomes better when you use this
What’s your favorite Mac product?
