MAC Cosmetics is definitely on my top ten list of favorite beauty brands.
As a matter of fact, it’s hard to pass a MAC counter without being tempted. Like last week, I couldn’t resist these goodies.
MAC Eye Shadow (in Embark)
I found out how about Embark Eye Shadow when my favorite makeup artist on Twitter suggested applying it as an eyeliner using a 266 small angle brush. It works like a dream!
Follow @NinaWMakeup on Twitter for other great makeup tips, plus she’s hilarious!
MAC Lipstick (in Politely Pink)
MAC lipsticks are in a class of their own (and they’re reasonably priced) so I just had to add a light pink shade to my current stash.
Politely Pink has a lustre finish which means it’s on the creamy side so it’s very moisturizing. To make the color last, I use a lip primer or blot my lips and then re-apply.
