Well, I’ll cut right to the chase: it has been almost 2 years since my last blog post! What happened? Life. Life happened. Maybe someday I will get into what has been going on in the last 24 months (all good things, for the most part!), but today I will say goodbye to 2019, and the 10s with a short and sweet post.
Even though some time has passed, I was, and remain, a makeup obsessed person. So naturally I collected a small heap of products, with a few thoughts and opinions to go with them as well. To start, I’d like to share something I usually find very useful: swatches. Today, it will be swatches of all the foundations I currently own. I’m hoping that this will be of help to anyone who shares a similar skin tone to me.
For Part II of my MAC lipstick collection, I thought I would introduce the colourful shades I have picked up over time so I could write some reviews on these bright shades on tan skin. Just like the nudes from my collection, there are some that I really like, and some I don’t really care for. I usually am hesitant when it comes to buying bright lipsticks only because I know I don’t really reach for them that often, however there are some in my collection that I’m glad I took the dive for, and hopefully these swatches will be useful to some who are on the fence about any of these shades!
I have a love/hate relationship with nude lipsticks. Ever since I bought one 5 years ago after being inspired by this photograph of Kim Kardashian, I’ve been extremely disappointed with how they end up looking on me. It took me a very long time to realize that nude lipsticks on fairer women look horrible on tan skinned individuals because you end up looking like a zombie or like Tyrone Biggums. However, I have come a long way since then and have found some nude lipsticks that finally work on me, but I also wanted to write about the ones that I wasn’t too crazy about either. So without further ado, I would like to present the ones I have acquired in my MAC lipstick collection.
