Mini Haul: MAC

So I have an itty bitty little hual from Mac :) I went last night on a whim with a good friend of mine & ended up getting only two things, but I am very excited about both of them!

First, I got Satin Taupe eye shadow ($11):

(Sorry about that shadow, nothing was even covering the light!)


It looks like a dark brown there, but it's really ..diverse! There are so many different colors in it, and it's not terribly dark but still has a wonderful color payoff. And obviously, you can see all the pretty shimmer :) It is pretty brown, but with red and grey undertones. Very, very pretty!


And, I also got strobe cream ($29.50)
"The ultimate quick fix for the skin. Super-powered with potent botanicals; de-snoozes, de-stresses, moistens,
freshens and boosts the look of dull, flat or tired-looking skin with a fully loaded vitamin zap and a mega dose of green tea. Brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants. Enhances the effects of light on all skin and in all lighting conditions from sunlight to spotlight."



Fortunately I got the angle just right to wear you could see the swatch shimmer! I'm only going to use this product as a highlight, and to intensify it I will put the Shell Pearl Beauty Powder over it. I was going to wait to get it, but my friend put it on in the store and it looked amazing so I knew I had to get it!




Hopefully I'll do some more face of the day's soon, I've just been so busy this week! I really want to today, to show off my St Patrick's day look (Steamy with Satin Toupe in the crease with Rubenesque showing through Retrospeck below the brow) buuuut! I really wanted to wash my face and take a nap =/
