Some MAC purchases: Soar Lip Pencil & Desert Rose Blush

A few weeks ago, I told you that I finally succumbed and bought MAC Brave lipstick & Whirl Lip Pencil. Whilst Whirl works very well with the lipstick, I thought that Soar might just be the perfect match, but it was out of stock at the time of ordering. When I received an in stock notification, I jumped on it immediately because I knew if I didn't, it would inevitably be out of stock again for a few months all the while building my desire for it and I would be kicking myself. I am so glad that I bought it - it is not as brown toned as Whirl and because of that, it is the exact perfect match for Brave. it almost has a mauve undertone, which is quite subtle. It looks great on the lips on it's own or paired with Brave. I am so glad to have this in my collection!

I also purchased a MAC blush in the shade Desert Rose, which looks quite red in the pan, but on the cheeks looks quite natural as long as you aren't too heavy handed with it, as it is very pigmented, so just one gentle swipe and you're done! It is a matte blush, but it is not flat at all so don't let that put you off!

Have you tried either of these products? What's your go to 'your lips, but better' lip colour?

Please keep your eyes peeled towards the end of the month for a giveaway featuring MAC Brave lipstick & Soar lip pencil!

  2. If memory serves me right I had Desert Rose but think it fell out of use cause I'm a little cack handed with very pigmented blushes like this!

  3. I think the Nars Yachiyo brush is brilliant for very pigmented blushes - it's almost impossible to pick too much up!

  4. I love it - it's very different to the other blushes in my collection, but I can see myself wearing it a lot!

  5. I love this blush shade, it's just stunning! I really want to get my hands on some MAC blushes, as they are a product I am yet to try from them x
