I finally got them! Mac Impassioned lipstick & 130 brush

As I swore to myself, there would be no summer without these two products in my makeup bag!


So now, my Mac shopping list is finally complete;
I can be a good girl, enjoy my summer vacations and stay sober from Mac...
until September, that is ;)


Impassioned lipstick: I was nagging and nagging about how much I wanted Impassioned- it was "the" lipstick to own this summer- boyfriend approves, too! Well, now that I got it, I'm having second thoughts.
Oh dear wallet, please don't start calling me names!












You see, Impassioned falls under the "in-ya-face" bright lipsticks category- and a bright lipstick requires a flawless base. And let's face it, my skin is far from it at the moment! I could cover up my acne scars with my trusty concealer, but currently I'm really bored to spend and extra 5-10' on my makeup routine! A mere 2' will do for now.

130 brush: initially, I went to the store with the intention of purchasing the famous for contouring 109 brush, to use with the Soleil Tan de Chanel.
[Get this: its turns out that this product collects tiny hair and fluff like crazy! I soon got disillusioned as I won't avoid hair collecting in the pan anyway, so I thought- what the hell, the shedful 109 it is!]












There was this guy with a hot haircut and a flawless makeup on who helped me out; he said I should go for the 130 if I wanted a brush to use with a cream bronzer, and to prove his point he showed me his brushbelt- out of all the duo-fibre brushes Mac makes, the 130 was the dirtiest while the 187, 188 were all clean and shiny! I figured that's shows something, so I caved in and got it. We shall see how it performs!

My next haul will take place in a Body Shop store;
they're currently having the much-awaited 20%+ sales, yay!!!

Any Mac shopping you did lately?

  1. i bought mac's ccb in pearl but i have a problem applying it properly. i think i have to buy Art Deco's duo fibre brush (apparently i can't afford mac's 187 :P).

    i'm in love with Korres products i have been cheating on Mac lately.

    re: impassioned you can either get a deeep tan or you could tone it down mixing it with a neutral lipstick? i know what you mean though. flawless face and it also need minimal makeup on the rest of the face.

  6. @evi, this Art Deco brush should work with the ccb by Mac, I think- but it's rather expensive for what it is, really! The Elf duo fibre brush costs only 4 euros and it should do the job just as well!

    @CookingChinchillas, well most of my Mac hauls take place at the head shop at Ermou str.- when I find it too crowded to be bothered, I go to Mac corners in Attica or Hondos Centers ;)

    @glittermeup, yeah, don't they? I'm already in love with the brush!

    @λειντι ντι, so clarity's got the looks an that's about it? Ha! Yeah Impassioned would look gorgeous with a deep tan, I should wait until the end of August to wear it! I'll try mixing it with Creme d'nude ;)

    @Blushingloves Irene Greece, I saw that girl and I got jealous! I had forgotten all about it, now with the Dior Amber Diamond craze- but it proves to be a classic!
