What I Bought From MAC

When a friend tells you they have 30% off at MAC it would be rude to not take advantage of it instantly. This month I seem to have run out of literally everything all at once, so I’ve taken it as an opportunity to try a few new beauty products that have been on my Pinterest beauty wish list.

The Eye and Lip Makeup Remover is one of the best removers I’ve tried in a while. It really lifts off my mascara with no remnants left in the morning from my lazy and hasty removal. However, I’m not a fan of the oily consistency of the product. Having oily skin myself, it makes my skin feel really slippery and I need cleanser to get rid of the layer left on my skin before I put eye cream on. It works so well though so I’m going to keep using it for the time being.

I originally bought the Prep + Prime Skin primer but it turns out it’s glittery. There’s no hint of that anywhere in the description on the site, but there is some comments in the reviews section that spells it out. I can’t really understand why anybody would want a glittery face so I exchanged it for the Prep + Prime Beauty Balm primer. I’ve stopped wearing foundation every day and my skin has never been better for it, but I was still looking for a primer predominantly to calm the redness on my face and minimise my massive pores. I’ve heard loads about BB creams but still didn’t really know what one was.

The woman in MAC Covent Garden put this on my face and the difference between the side of my face with it on and the other was amazing. Redness was majorly reduced and my skin was completely even. I may be anti-foundation for the daytimes, but tinted moisturiser I can deal with when it works this well and is ever so slightly better for my skin.
