Goodies from MAC

March 13, 2017


Hello lovelies,

I recently decided to treat myself to a MAC Lipstick and Lip Liner and I was happy to receive a free sample of MAC Prep & Prime along with my order. I usually go for pink shades on my lips but I really wanted a brown/orange tone. Here is a picture of the products:


Firstly is the Taupe Lipstick it is a gorgeous and described as a  reddish-taupe brown shade and costs £16.50 from MAC. It is a matte lipstick and I honestly can't get enough of it. It's very long lasting and I wear it as part of my everyday look. I am quite pale and was a bit apprehensive at first but this shade is quite nice on pale skin because it isn't too dark.

The lip liner is called Hover and individually it would cost £13. However, since it is an exact match with Taupe I decided to pay £29.50 for both the lipstick and the lip liner because I couldn't just get one could I?

Next is the Prep & Prime sample which I must say I wasn't overly keen on. I admit, it make my MAC Water weight  foundation go on lovely but the Primer actually has glitter or a shimmer in it, which I wasn't keen on. I much prefer plain primers.

Is you like any of the products mentioned in this post, find the links below. Thank you for reading, Lauren x

  2. The Taupe lipstick is really gorgeous and like you say, perfect for pale skin as it's not too intensely dark. I have such a lipstick addiction right now haha...

  5. I adore matte mac lipsticks but I've not come across this shade before, I'll deffo check it out next time i'm in Mac. I like the Prep and Prime more as a moisturiser, I find it does brighten the skin because of the glitter but I still need more of a smoothing primer on top x

    1. I can see why you would use it as a moisturiser, it was more the sparkle to it that I wasn't keen on.

  8. The Taupe lipstick is such a stunning shade! It looks so dreamy and like a perfect transitional colour for spring into summer, as well as for the colder months. Loving the look of Hover too <3

  9. I love the shade, i've never been able to get away with darker lipsticks. I prefer plain primers too, can't be shimmering at work haha!

    1. It's mainly the shimmer that puts me off because it comes through my foundation and isn't an everyday look for me!
