I actually ended up returning a MAC Studio Fix Powder (didn't do anything for me, ended up looking cakey no matter how I applied it/doesn't have enough coverage) and a MAC Lipstick in Creme d' Nude (absolutely RUBBISH! Never ever again will I buy a high-end lipstick, not moisturizing at all and sinks into every line on my lips, Revlon makes SUCH better lipsticks for half the price).
So with my store credits I decided to branch out and try something other than MAC eye products (which seems to be all I go for lately) and grab a blush and a primer!
I was looking at the new Shop MAC Cremeblend Blush in Optimistic Orange, but its way darker in person (think burnt orange) and looks an awful lot like the NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Orange, so I think I'm going to save my money and go for that one since its only $5.50 on Cherry Culture (on a side note, does anyone know where you can get NYX in stores besides Ulta?! There isn't one in my area).
No other cream blushes caught my attention, so I went on looking at the powders. I knew I wanted something orange and close to my everyday Physicians Formula Blushing Peach, but without the shimmer. The lovely Makeup Artist recommended Peaches which is a sheertone, and it ended up coming home with me! I really love the color in the pan, but it takes a little bit of building to make it show up on me (I'm only a MAC NW 20) so I don't know, I'm going to play around with it a bit and if it doesn't get any better I'll exchange it for Melba.
Lately my skin has been going through some ups and downs, some days my foundation will look like I just put it on after 6 hours, and some days its a blotchy mess after 2 hours! This led me over to the primer section of MAC, and when I saw the words "MATTE" I knew it was for me! I've tried out the MATTE Cream a few times, and I have to say I'm a little disappointed. My face is still really oily after like an hour, but my skincare routine has been changing a little so maybe that's the real problem.
I'm going to do full reviews on these two things, so I'll let you guys know how they end up working out for me!
