Hey there chum. Ok so my M.A.C products finally arrived in the post. So i thought id do a little first impressions review. So the first thing i got was a 'studio sculpt SPF 15 foundation' in NW15. I was very excited to try this out as its the first M.A.C foundation I've ever bought. Where i live there inst anywhere that sells M.A.C and i was going to have to go to Edinburgh or Glasgow before i could try one out in store. So this meant that ordering one off line was going to be a risk. THANKFULLY it is a very good colour for me. The first thing i noticed is how thick the foundation is, and it gives a very heavy coverage which is perfect for me as i have very red cheeks which need covered up most of the time. It cost £24, which isn't too bad seeing as M.A.C is a good quality brand and i think its defiantly worth the money. The only thing is, because its quite thick you need a good squeeze of it to cover your face, and this means it could be used up quite quickly. At the moment I've been mixing it with Maybelline's 'FitMe!' foundation in 115. They are both gel based and very very similar shades so it means that i can get a slightly lighter coverage and not be waisting the foundation. I was slightly worried that i might have not liked this foundation, but its great. And with a little bit of powder over the top to set it it stays on all day and keeps its flawless finish.
The other product that i bought is a M.A.C matte lipstick in 'So Chaud'. As you can see from the picture above, its a lovely bright orange/red colour and looks great on the lips. The colour stays bright through out the day and is very pigmented. It is slightly drying, but with a bit of Vaseline underneath its fine. It stays on well and doesn't need reapplied too often. Its another good buy, costing £14.
This is how the products look on my skin. As you can see the lipstic is a lovely bright colour (and matches my hat perfectly, which is from GAP if your wondering) and the foundation makes the skin look pretty much flawless.
This was just another little review that i thought i'd do. I also wanted to get some more pictures up on my blog because i think the visual elements are just as important as all the written content. Hope this is a helpful review.
Chat too you later xx
