Mini MAC Haul

So I stopped by the MAC counter the other day and picked up the items I had on my list to get from the Neo Sci-Fi collection.


Electro, Expensive Pink, Magnetic Fields and Pink Grapefruit Lip Glass. I won't bore you with the swatches since I'm pretty sure we've all seen them by now. I actually like this collection and may go back to pick up some more stuff. I'm trying to be good since I'm waiting for Colour Forms.

I also picked up the Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher from Future Earth to add to my ever growing collection of lip treatments.

A two-in-one lip-conditioning and exfoliating stick. On one side, a botanically-derived natural exfoliator, on the other a lip conditioner that moisturizes, nourishes, and soothes the lips. Use to smooth and prep the lips prior to lip colour. Streamlined application: applies flat-on. Features M·A·C’s signature vanilla flavour.

So far I like it. The exfoilator is great! The jury is still out on the conditioner side. I don't use it throughout the day so I'm not sure lasting power of the conditioner. The few times I have used it I was pleased.

MissVizzy07 gave a great suggestion for a lip exfoilator for the budget conscious -

"Have you ever just tried sugar and vaseline? Or salt and vaseline? Its a lot cheaper than those Sephora products and works like a charm. You can even do olive oil and sugar or salt. Thats what I do and my lips are always smooth."

Follow that with the lip conditioner of your choice and you're good to go and money you saved can go toward something other beauty item. I will defiantly be trying this out!

I'm debating on whether or not to get the Solar Field Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden. It's so light and pretty. I thought about it the whole way home. 2 days later I'm still thinking about it. sigh...

which counter do you shop.. all of the ones i frequent are sold out of almost everything. no electro for sure. i like golden bronzer.. i asked the difference between it and refined golden and i was told refined golden has more shimmer. i really want one because of the case!!! but i don't need anymore bronzer!!!

@ nywele - great minds think alike! My counter had no samples of Pink Grapefruit to try plus it was the last one so I just bought it. When I finally did try it I was like ok it's a tad shimmery but with some tweaking and adding it with Electro it worked out.

Aren't the bronzers pretty?! I'm still thinking about it. I was there Wednesday and they had it. The only think they didn't have was Pink Grapefruit.

@ yummy - I shop the counter at the Metro Center Macy's. I was there Wednesday and they had it. They had everything but Pink Grapefruit.

The case is what drew me it! Then the shimmer...Since my favorite bronzer committed suicide I may use that as an excuse to replace it. lol
