I couldn’t resist getting some MAC goodies while on lunch break last week.
Some might think this is rather boring, a bunch of brushes, a few eye shadows and an eye cream…. but you know how I love brushes! 😛
221 Mini Tapered Blending Brush
This was a lemming since I got the 137 last year. I have the 222 Tapered Blending Brush and this is essentially the shrunken down version of that. This will be great for crease work.
139 SE Duo Fibre Tapered Face Brush
161 SE Duo Fibre Face Glider Brush
288 SE Duo Fibre Eye Shader Brush
These 3 brushes were released for the Haute Dogs Collection in the Fall. I thought they were made permanent but I see now they’re in the “Goodbye” section on MAC. I wasn’t sure about them until I got a chance to touch them – they’re soft but have a nice firmness to them as well. The blond bristles are of natural hairs (goat?) and the white bristles are synthetic – these are made in China.
133 Small Cheek Brush
This is a new brush released with the Faerie Whispers collection, and it’s permanent. I hadn’t heard about this brush until I laid my eyes on it at the store and it was love at first sight! It’s made of the same soft white goat hairs as the 137, and the handle is stamped with “Japan”, meaning it’s made in Japan (yay!)
Oval 6 Brush
I’ve been stalking this brush on and off for a long time – finally it’s back in stock. I now have the whole collection of MAC’s Masterclass brushes (ie toothbrush brushes heh). I’ll do a review on them eventually. Ok, enough about brushes…
Pro Palette Refill in Kid
I saw this on MAC’s “Goodbye” list as well so I had to get a back-up. This is one of the most buttery, blend-y transitional shades MAC has ever made – it’s very similar to Wedge but a touch lighter and a creamier formula. Why MAC chose to discontinue this, I’ll never know! 😕
Paints in Sublime Nature and Bamboom
I live in constant fear that MAC will discontinue these Paints in the tube form. I talked about wanting to get these last year in my MAC Paint Pots and Paints post so I decided to finally just get them.
Fast Response Eye Cream
I used this ages ago and really enjoyed it so I decided to get it again since I’m nearly finished my beloved Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye cream – I like to switch things up once in a while. This is a lightweight gel-cream formula that really helps to give the under eye area an awake look.
I’m planning on getting the MAC Matchmaster foundation after I’ve purged some of my foundation stash. I’m also close to 6 empties for another Back to MAC! Do you have any of these items from MAC? Any MAC items I should check out?
