My First Mac Product!

I have been looking at Mac products for a while. After watching many youtube videos and reading blog posts about Mac products I have finally taken the plunge. I have been wanting a good concealer because even though I am only 20 I have begun to see dark circles forming and even wrinkles!! Ah, very unhappy about that. On Easter my grandmother gave me a gift card to Macy's and the Macy's where I live has a Mac and Lush counter. I first went to Lush and they gave me a sample of the Ocean Salt scrub because I always like to try their products before I buy a full size. My skin can be very picky. But back to Mac!

I decided to buy a concealer and I had the Mac attendant help me decide which one I wanted. I came in thinking that I was going to buy studio sculpt or studio finish. But when I put on the studio sculpt it just felt unbelievably heavy underneath my eyes. So the very helpful lady pointed out the Pro Longwear concealer. I tried it on with a color that is slightly darker to my skin tone and then with one a little lighter. There was not an exact color for me so I went with the lighter one. I do think that I might have to go a little bit darker for the summer because I think the NW20 will be too light. I do set the concealer with a powder. I have noticed that it will slightly crease but not badly. I would definetly repurchase it and I will probably do that in the summer when I am tanner.

It looks a lot lighter on my hands because I remember to wear spf on my face every day and my hands I sadly do not do this with often.
Also my friend Alyssa was shopping with me and when we went to the Mac counter I got her to put on her first lipstick! I think it was Vegas Volt, a very bright coral color and she loved it! I put on the new Viva Glam lipstick by Nicki Minaj. I thought that this was going to look ridiculous on me but it ended up looking really good and I think I might have to go buy it. I think that the Viva Glam line is a wonderful way of supporting AIDs research.



  1. it's always best to go a shade or two lighter in concealer then your natural color so you did good =]

  2. Yay! I was really nervous about that. I think it is definitely good for right now but I am starting to get tanner right now and I think I might need a darker one soon so I do not look like I have white raccoon eyes. lol
