I bought a couple of bits from MAC yesterday. Namely the Studio Sculpt foundation that I was keen to try after the MAC trends workshop. I bought it in NC20, it does look quite dark in the arm swatch but I'm hopeful that it doesn't look that way on my face. First impressions are that it smells a little strange (it reminds of emulsion which is a little freaky for a foundation), I also feel like I will need to use something more hydrating to prime my face before applying the Studio Sculpt as my skin feels a little tight after application. I'll be keeping on a eye on longeivity and any colour change during the day.
The other item I bought was MAC Teddy Eye Kohl. This was a re-purchase as I've owned Teddy before. I gifted my old one to a friend when she took a liking to it. It's a bronzy-brown colour and compliments my eye colour well. I have a feeling it is quite similar to Rouge Bunny Rouge Lola and I will do a side by side comparison at soon. Teddy is quite a soft pencil and can be smudged easily. It also works well as an eyeshadow base and Oxford Jasmine used this particular colour as the basis for a smoky eye during my makeover last year.
The 'old' item that I'm wearing today is Rouge Bunny Rouge Solstice Halcyon. I used Londonmakeupgirl's technique of applying the eyeshadow over Teddy Eye kohl to soften the line and I really like the effect. I think you can see that Solstice Halcyon is a well loved item from the fact that it is in pieces. I like the subtle shimmer finish of this eyeshadow and I think it makes it easier to wear than either a straight matte or more frosty taupe. I've sneaked in another 'old' item here too. I've been reaching for RBR Murmurings lipstick a lot of late. It's such a great colour for the time of year and it feels really good on my wind chapped lips.
I'd love to hear about your new, old and re-purchased items if you fancy sharing.
