New In: MAC

mac haul

Hello lovelies,

Being very busy the past week, a quick trip to Austria was a welcomed vacation. Of course, when I’m in Austria I can’t not go to the MAC store  (actually a counter at Marionnaud) and this time was not different. So far all my visits to MAC stores resulted in only one lipstick (I have way too much eyeshadows and blushes and I have cheaper brush options which work fine for me), but this one made up for all the times I’ve been there and bought nothing.

Recently I created an inventory and with that in mind I decided to get (mostly) the products I need. I had several more items on the list (the one I didn’t buy) which were an eyeshadow in Vex (but I have a bunch of eyeshadows), blush in Harmony for contouring (but I recently found my perfect contouring product and I’ll show it to you the next week) and Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightcdscapade (but I kind of decided that it looks too shimmery and that, if I get a highlighter, it will be Shiseido).

Budući da sam prošli tjedan bila prezauzeta, jedva sam dočekala put u Austriju. Naravno, kad sam tamo uvijek posjetim MAC dućan (tj. stand u parfumeriji Marionnaud). Rezultat svih mojih dosadašnjih posjeta MAC dućanima bio je samo jedan ruž (imam i previse sjenila i rumenila, a našla sam i dobre, a jeftinije kistove), ali sam ovaj put nadoknadila sve propušteno.

Nedavno sam poslikala svu kozmetiku i na temelju toga odlučila kupiti (uglavnom) proizvode koji mi nedostaju. Uz ovo što sam kupila, još su neki proizvodi na wishlisti: sjenilo u nijansi Vex (ali već imam previše sjenila), rumenilo u nijansi Harmony za konturiranje (ali sam nedavno nasal savršeni proizvod za to o kojem ću vam više reći idući tjedan) i Mineralize Skinfinish u nijansi Lightscapade (za njega sam zaključila da je previše sjajan i da ću ipak uzeti Shiseido highlighter).

I got two face products: Pro Longwear concealer in NC15. My Lancôme Effacernes will finally be finished (it’s about time, I’ve had it for like 10 years). The bonus is that it only contains 9ml so I hope it will take me less than 10 years to finish it :)

My skin is reacting to dry winter air by being even more oilier, so I bought MAC Blot powder in the shade Light. I’ve heard raves about it all over the internet so I hope it will live up to expectation.

By the way, I finally know which is my MAC foundation shade – it is NC15; it will be useful for future foundation references.

Uzela sam Pro Longwear korektor u nijansi NC15. Korektor koji trenutno koristim (Lancôme) je pri kraju (konačno, jer ga imam oko 10 godina). Peo Longwear sadrži 9 ml, pa se nadam da mi neće opet trebati 10 godina da ga potrošim).

Zahvaljujući suhom zimskom zraku koža lica mi se jače masti, pa sam kupila MAC Blot puder u nijansi Light. Hvale ga svuda po internetu, pa se nadam da neće razočarati.

Usput, konačno sam otkrila koja sam MAC nijansa pudera: NC15.

I couldn’t resist getting more lipsticks. This time I got two shades: Impassioned (warm bright pink) and Vegas Volt (orange coral). These are Amplified line, so I hope it will be less fussy than matte line. The colors are not really true to nature – it is dark and cloudy so I couldn’t get a decent light.

Have you tried some of these products? What other MAC products would you recommend?

Uzela sam još par ruževa: Impassioned (topla jarka roza) i Vegas Volt (narančasto koraljna). Te su nijanse iz Amplified linije, pa se nadam da s njima neću imati problema kao s matte linijom. Boje nisu baš najbolje prikazane jer nemam dobro svjetlo.

Jeste li isprobali koji od ovih proizvoda? Koje biste druge MAC proizvode preporučili?

Thank you for reading,

  1. Ne, zbilja ga koristim toliko dugo. Ima 15 ml što je nemoguće potrošiti ako se koristi samo mala količina na podočnjacima, a sve to vrijeme nije promijenio teksturu, boju i miris (glavni indikatori da se proizvod pokvario), pa sam ga nastavila koristiti.
    Znam da dosta ljudi strogo prati rokove, ali ja se time ne opterećujem i smatran da su to uglavnom (osim u slučaju maskara i tekućih tuševa) marketinške gluposti. Neke je stvari nemoguće potrošiti u zadanom roku (mislim da je za rumenilo 2 godine, a nema šanse da ga za to vrijeme potrošim, jedino ako ga lopatom nanosim) i ne dolazi u obzir da bacim proizvod koji nije promijenio boju, miris ili teksturu. Kozmetiku redovito kontroliram i držim ju na hladnom i tamnom mjestu te je jedina stvar koja mi se dosad pokvarila bila Essence baza za sjenila (ali je ona ionako bila pri kraju).
