MAC Birthday Goodies

My friends Melanie and Katelyn got me some MAC goodies for my birthday. I got them around two weeks ago, but I am just now getting around to posting about them. Oops!

Giftcard, Taupe Impeccable Brow Pencil, Phlox lipstick (not pictured in these swatches, because I already have it swatched here), Lovey-Dove Slimshine lipstick, and Off the Page eyeshadow.

Lovey-Dove Slimshine

Taupe Impeccable Brow Pencil

Off the Page eyeshadow

This was my first Slimshine and I really like them. I almost wish I had never known how great they are, because now I'm extremely upset over them being discontinued. I like to use the Taupe brow pencil on the days that I want a bold look (my everyday brow pencil is MAC's Dirty Blonde). Off the Page is a true orange eyeshadow. I can honestly say that I never would have purchased this myself, but I'm surprised at its wearability. I'm happy to have it in my collection and I think I'll use it quite a bit in the fall with the darker colors!

Lovely gifts! I love Slimshines, I always thought they didn't get the love the deserved, because they are just wonderful. A little glossy, and shinny. I just love them so much. Next time I go to my CCO I am planning on bulking up on slimshines. Boo slimshines going away.

Wow that was long. Sorry! XD!

You can wear the orange on Saturdays in the fall; even if you're not in Death Valley you can rock a gameday look! :D

Lovely gifts! I've always wanted to try Bare Slimshine, but I chose not to get them after hearing they were discontinued. I was afraid that I was going to get backup happy. lol!

@Lillian- You are so right! I love the finish of them! The next time I am in the States, I'm going on a hunt for them at CCOs. I am kicking myself for never getting them before. I can never understand why popular products get discontinued. It's a shame!

@Jennifer- Girl, this is true! I actually have a purple and orange eye look that I should share during college football season. And I'll wear my Tigers shirt with pride!

@Linh- This could possibly be a smart move on your part! I already went out and got another Slimshine that I'll be showing in my haul next week. And I want more. I blame my friend for starting this! :P
