While it is true that I sucumbed to the Fluidlines very quickly and with disastrous results (for my wallet), it is also true that I also grabbed a couple other things from the Mac is Beauty collection. Here are the powder products that came home with me.
Let me introduce you to my picks from Kiko’s Modern Tribes collection.
Although there were some seriously nice offerings (go to Kiko’s website and drool over the powders’ packaging!) I choose to try two of their Free Spirit Lips and Cheeks pencils as I had yet to try one of these multipurpose type of pencils.
They have six shades available, including a nice red, but I opted for the more neutral or natural shades. I usually go for the bright colours so I thought that a change would be nice.
The pencils are 8,90€ each and contain 4,5 g of product. Also, inside each box comes a jumbo pencil sharpener, which I thought was a nice touch on their part.
Those that know me can confirm that I have some obsessive tendencies. If I like a book, song or an eye pencil I will find myself wanting to have other books by the same author, songs by the same singer and eye pencils in the same formula.
So it will not surprise you that after having loved the Powerpoint Eye Pencilin Buried Treasure that I was introduced to in a MAC Technique session a year ago, I found myself itching to get my hands on some more Powerpoint Eye Pencils.
Also, for a while there it seemed that all the blogosphere was talking about this permanent little gem that is the Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul, I am mostly blaming Karen though, so of course it too had to come home with me.
MAC’s Mineralize blushes are a magpies dream! They are pigmented and reflect light in a gorgeous way, so of course I have bought a few of them over time.
The only disadvantage that they had was that I didn’t use them very frequently because they used to hid in my drawer. Now that they have been depoted (onto a Dome Z-palette) I expect that they will be used much more and that some other Mineralize blush might join them!
As part of the decluttering project I am carrying out, I decided to depot my mineralize products. As was the case with my regular eyeshadows and blushes, trying to find a specific shade was time consuming and the products ended not being used as much.
Also, in the case of the Mineralize Eyeshadows, I don’t like the product so far, so by depoting them and keeping them visible I am trying to force myself to use them.
The only products I have not depoted are my Minerlize Skinfinishes, as I would simply need several palettes to contain them!
As the Mineralize products are dome shaped as opposed to the flat surface of regular formulas, I had to buy a Z-palette high enough that could contain them, the Dome Palette.
The top row contains 4 limited edition blushes: Amber Glow, Petal Power, Talk of the Town and Lavish Living.
