Hello everyone! I popped into MAC today with my empties in hand, but of course me being me I didn't leave with just the lipsticks that I was planning to Back2MAC for. I also picked up 2 paint pots that have been on my wishlist for almost a year now.
I'm a big fan of the MAC paint pots ever since I bought my first one almost 4 and a half years ago and it's still going strong. These pots of creamy goodness (:P) are great for just applying a quick wash of color to the lids or as a base for your eyeshadow. People with oily lids may want to apply a primer underneath to prevent creasing. I think these 2 colors will look great during the summer as well. Rubenesque is a peachy-pink with a golden duo-chrome and Indianwood is a golden-orangey bronze. Paint pots are $17.50 each, and I realized that the price has gone up a dollar from when I first bought one. :/
The original reason for me going into MAC was to exchange my empties that I have been saving for a few lipsticks. I now realize that the three lipsticks I got are all very similar to each other but I love all of them none the less. I have a slight obsession with anything and everything coral or peach colored, I can't help it. I don't hear many people talking about ravishing or crosswires, I think it's cause they look a bit boring in the tube, but I think they're gorgeous. I also think these shades will be great for spring and summer. MAC lipsticks are normally $14.50 each.
- Ravish is a beautiful peachy coral color. It is a cremesheen formula which is my favorite formula that MAC has to offer.
- Crosswires is more of muted cherry red coral. It is also a cremesheen formula.
- Vegas Volt is a pretty popular coral from MAC, it's more of a true coral compared to the other two. It is a amplified formula, which is my second favorite formula.
