A Quick Guide to MAC Lipstick Finishes

mac-lipsticks

The famous MAC Cosmetics is the very first company that I was introduced to when it came to non-drugstore cosmetics companies. They have some of the better products on the market and their products have been worn by celebrities, makeup artists, and the everyday lady alike. When a new trend is trending, I have noticed that there is always a way it can be done with MAC products. MAC was started in Toronto, Canada in 1985 and everything after that was complete history. This company has multiple products and could essentially be the only brand in your collection because they have everything from skincare and lashes to foundations and concealers. They have collaborated with other brands such and Hello Kitty, Nasty Gal and The Simpson’s to pop sensations such as Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Marilyn Monroe. Another admirable part of MAC Cosmetics is their Viva Glam lipstick line, introduced in 1994, in which they donate all of the proceeds from Viva Glam lipsticks to the MAC AIDS Funds is donated “to support men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS.” There have been many celebrities with their own limited edition Viva Glam lipsticks such as Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and sometime this year Miley Cyrus.

Hey everybody!

Today I am going to be taking you guys step-by-step through my current eyebrow routine. The very first thing I started to learn makeup-wise was about eyebrows from JJ of BeautybyJJ.

Remember when I wrote that post announcing the collaboration between MAC Cosmetics and Nasty Gal Clothing? Well I decided that I knew for sure that I absolutely had to buy at least one of the lipsticks named Stunner, Runner, and Gunner. I ended up buying Runner, the burgundy color. I received it via the standard UPS shipping that took less than a week to get to my house. This was my first ever MAC lipstick purchase, so this is a pretty big deal for me!

Now, I have a few MAC products but I don’t purchase things from Nasty Gal. I tend to just lustfully dream of buying from there.

For about 3 months I’ve had the MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Cream. When my mother bought it for me, I was very skeptical to see if it would actually work, or even do anything at all. However, I am always ready to try something new, so I decided to give it a chance.
