MAC cream colour base review

11778029_1028853253792079_1151182477_n

Usually, I hate the term ‘holy grail’ when people talk about beauty products, therefore I refuse to call this a ‘holy grail’ product, even if it technically should be.

I remember watching a beauty vlog one time and literally, the whole five minutes, this Youtuber pulled out every product she owned and said “this is definitely a holy grail product!”, which really made me ponder whether she knew any adjectives or not…

Regardless, this has to be the best unplanned purchase I have ever made. The MAC cream colour bases are generally used as highlighters, but I also like to use mine as a stand alone eye shadow, and even an eye shadow base. The consistency is perfect for highlighter, because it is creamy but easily to blend and build for effect. I bought the shade ‘Hush’ which is this gorgeous, frosty blush pink colour.

On the cheeks it gives a beautiful, dewy highlight that makes my contour look really defined, but is subtle enough that it looks natural.

On the eyes it appears a lighter pink than on the cheeks, and I’ve found that it compliments my Naked 3 palette so well because the colour is slightly lighter than ‘dust’ but is more dense and therefore the pigments show more, so it’s the perfect base for a nude and slightly shimmery look.

I really do love this product, and I think that this colour in particular can suit so many different people. The product itself is so versatile and long lasting that it’s definitely worth more than it looks!

All choked up

I know I haven’t posted in a long time, and i’m sorry! It’s been a very busy time for me with regard to school and family and every time I get a spare moment, I start writing but always get distracted with other things and so I have a whole heap of material drafted that I either haven’t finished or haven’t edited!

One of my goals, however, is to at least post once a week! and i’m going to finish of the articles i’ve begun, starting with this one!

 

Lately, I have become obsessed with chokers. There is something about their 90’s mystical vibe that has lured me in. I first joined the choker club with a delicate half moon choker from Seventh Sun which is really comfortable to wear and gives off a really relaxed, cool indie/hippy type of vibe. The quality is quite good from what I’ve noticed and really versatile to suit any style!

I’ve always had a ‘thing’ for crystals… crystal necklaces, rings, and even have a little crystal collection which I’ve had since I was 5. The beauty of the enigmatic stones, and their ‘powers’ make them the perfect, unique accessory, as each stone is different and significant in some way. They are a very personal accessory which, although style and cut can be replicated, the stone itself can’t.

When I was in Italy, I purchased this gorgeous crystal necklace from a little market store at the base of these beautiful (and somewhat claustrophobic) krast caves in Marche, Italy, called “Le Grotte Di Frassasi” (The Frassasi caves) This necklace has been my staple every day necklace since April last year and still, to this day, I have no clue what type of a crystal it is! My closest guess is an amber stone, but I can’t be sure!

On Wednesday I also received this gorgeous Rose Quartz necklace from thelunarlabel, which is just so easy to wear and just gives me a really positive energy! For the amazing price of $8 NZD (with free postage!) I will definitely be purchasing more, next time with my favourite crystal, the amethyst!

This is the cheapest, chicest, and most unique way of changing up your style and giving it a bit of a naturally beautiful twist!

We’re only four days away from Christmas and I know many of you are rushing to find the perfect gift!

Here is a quick Lust/Must comparison for that little stocking filler you’re missing! Try the NYX Lipsticks for a quality equal to that of the Lancome Rogue lipstick for a more economical buy! You might even be able to add a little something extra with the money saved!
