Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
I recently did some shopping at MAC and had my makeup done at Sephora which I discussed here. I picked up some goodies during both visits.
Ok, in the store both of these foundations looked like perfect matches on me. I did ask for a slightly darker shade than what I was originally matched with at the MAC counter as I felt that it was a little too light. That said, how the heck do these look SO different side by side? This is disturbing to say the least.
MAC Pro Longwear Foundation
I currently use Estee Lauder Double Wear as my foundation and I do love it but I've been wanting to try some other brands just to see what else is out there since I've been using Double Wear for so long. I've tried this a few times and I like it so far.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
I also am on the hunt for a great concealer which in all my makeup wearing years, I have yet to find. Not to mention, my concealer needs are changing because now I have to look for ones that don't accentuate my lines. This concealer is well loved in the beauty blogosphere for it's longevity and the fact that it doesn't settle into lines. It kind of does settle into my lines actually but I'm going to give it a few more tries to make my final verdict.
MAC Lustre Lipstick in Capricious
This is my first MAC lipstick! I love the color and the feel. I'll do a full review soon.
Makeup Forever HD Foundation
This is the foundation that the MUA at Sephora recommended for me when I asked for full coverage and long lasting. So far I like it but I want to wear it a little longer to make a final decision on it.
Nars Creamy Concealer
This is another hugely loved concealer, known for it's consistency and for not settling into lines. I actually purchased and returned this concealer in another shade late last year because it settled into my lines really badly. When the MUA suggested it in another shade I thought I'd give it a try. It's still settling into my lines but maybe I'm just being too picky and this is the best it's going to get? Ugh.
Nars Blush in Sin
I have one other Nars blush and it's in the popular shade, Orgasm and I love it. To be honest, blushes don't really excite me at all. They don't look that much different when on the face in my opinion. I had heard tons of love for Sin but was never curious about it. When the MUA applied this to my cheeks, I was obsessed! It's a gorgeous shimmery plum color.
Do you guys use any of these foundations or concealers? What are your thoughts and experiences of them?
