A few new MAC goodies

Last week, I went and picked up a few MAC items that had been on my wishlist for a while.

Copperplate eye shadow
I've been hearing rave reviews about this shadow for a while, I'm happy to have finally purchased it. It's so smooth!

Trax eye shadow
This shadow can be a bit tricky to work with. It's sheer, but buildable. It'll work best if you use a good base underneath.

Beauty Marked eye shadow
I really love the colour of this in the pan, though it doesn't swatch as vibrant as that. It's more of an almost blacked purple with some really subtle reddish plum shimmer. I'm looking forward to using this for a smokey eye or over liner.

I've been hearing great things about the MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15. I figured I'd give it a go because I'd rather use a tinted moisturizer than a foundation. The makeup I wear to work is very minimal. I have to wake up very early in the mornings and keep my beauty routine short, as I don't have much time before I have to leave for work. I'll try this out for a while and write a review on it in the future. Have any of you tried this?

There's always a ton of stuff I'd like to get at MAC, but I tried to keep it to a minimum this time because I know I'll be spending a small fortune on the upcoming Colour Forecast Collection. I was invited an unveiling event on Tuesday. I've never been to one before, so I'm excited! I'm sure it'll be pretty chaotic in there, hopefully not too much so. This is one of the biggest collections to come out at once that I can remember. I'll be sharing what I get! Have you been to an event before?


  1. How do you get an invite to events? Like if you usually spend a lot in that store? I shop more in Sephora than I get MAC stuff.

    I do love MAC blushes though, and I have an urge to get more more more! :)

  2. @Arianne I think they just randomly send out invites to people in their computer system. I've received them even through periods when I wasn't buying anything there. I used to get event invites through the mail, but this one came through email.

    I love MAC blushes too! You should check out the Blush Ombres that come out with the Colour Forecast collection, will be in stores Feb 11. I got them all at the event last night, they are GORGEOUS!!!
