Yet another MAC haul


Ever walk into a store with intention of buying one specific thing and end up buying something else? Well, happens to me all the time. I stopped by MAC because I wanted to buy Studio Fix powder foundation- my sister keeps raving about it and I wanted to see if I’d like it. Once inside I was told that if I like medium coverage I should try Studio Tech, which is a cream foundation. I thought that it sounded nice, especially since my skin has been feeling quite dry lately and powder foundation might not be of much help to me. I’ve been using it only for a few days and I’m already liking it.


I also got transparent finishing powder which is supposed to help to set the foundation and keep the skin matte. I loved the way it looked when the makeup artist applied it to my skin, but my only concern is photo flashback, I’m yet to see if this will be the problem.

Prep & prime Face Protection lotion with SPF50 is actually a product that I bought a while ago, but completely forgot about. I only remembered about it when I was looking for my other moisturizer with SPF50. This lotion comes in a tiny tiny bottle (costs about $30). It’s very rich and moisturizing, perfect for the skin during winter months (although it feels more like Spring at the moment with all this rain…).

Finally I asked the girl who was helping me to show me a nude lipstick that would go nice with my complexion. She showed a few options but the one that I liked the most was Pure Zen.

I will soon review few of these products, I especially have high hopes for the Studio Tech foundation :) Have a great weekend everyone! Paula xxx

    All the time, this is so typical of me hehe ;)

    These products look fab, can’t wait to hear your verdict! I’ve only ever tried the MAC eyeshadows but I really want to try a few of their lipsticks and also their strobe cream which sounds brilliant.

      Glad I’m not the only one haha :)

      Loove their lipsticks, for some reason I always buy neutral colors from MAC, I really should go for something bold next time. Ohh yes, I also heard that the strobe cream is really nice:)

    Same thing happened to me just before Christmas – I went into the Mac store to buy a Christmas gift for my sister, and of course when the Mac girl tried all these fab things out on my face I had to have them :) I definitely hope you’ll do a review on these products!

    By the way, I’d be so happy if you stopped by my blog! :)

    I love Studio Fix Powder because I can wear it on its own o topping of a liquid foundation! Never tried Studio Tech, but will wait for your review =D

    The lipstick is lovely as well! Great nude color!
