MAC Haul featuring Viva Glam Rihanna!


Ooh I just got this in the mail yesterday(two days ago now!)and I was so excited to just play with it all but as usual when you have soooo many young kids they pretty much make that impossible, now throw on top that my 9 month, 2 and 3 year old are all sick. Needless to say I didn’t get much playing with makeup last night but I will today because it’s Saturday and Daddy is home so I can lock myself in the bathroom for a while and he can see what my week has been like. Haha. It’s payback time. I’m kidding. Kinda. Ok let’s get into what I got…

So there are two more items not pictured above I picked up at Macys so I’m going to include it too because I got them a day apart from each other. So the first thing I got was…

Oh yeah let’s start off right…

For some reason the first couple of pics came out a little blurry I think? It could be my eyes but I’m not sure. So if it is, sorry 😦


Hello Viva Glam Rihanna! Look at that babe! It’s gorgeous! I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it I was honestly hoping for a pink lipstick but I wanted the cute packaging so I bought it for that single reason! Haha I know that’s awful but it all worked out in the end. It’s a sparkly red lipstick and I love it.

Next babe is MAC Mineralized Rich Lipstick in Dreaminess. Oh my this is like the most perfect pink. I absolutely love this color. Why don’t they make this color in the regular lipstick line? It’s a pretty penny. I think it was $22 for one lipstick! And I’m pretty obsessed with it too so who knows how long this color is going to last because I think I’ll be wearing this everywhere. I wore it to bed last night! Yes I did. I took off all my makeup serum, eye cream, moisturizer, second moisturizer, lip balm, Mac dreaminess, Michael Todd refresher mist, bed! I told you, I’m obsessed.

I’m sorry no lip swatches. But here is a hand swatch. Maybe I’ll try and update later with lip swatches.

Here is Amber Lights (FYI… We are at 24 hrs later it was like 2am and little D got sick. I had to go handle that. Little man has a double ear infection on top of the stomach bug that is going around. Ry Ry is getting over the stomach bug and Brae is at the same point as D other than the ear infections. It’s been a nightmare in my house for two weeks now. Me last week and obviously I passed on my germs to them I guess the only bright side is that we are not sick at the same time. So it took me two days to write this post. Sorry)

I might have an obsession with lipstick lately, I just can’t stop. I feel like I need the perfect color. The MAC Dreaminess is pretty perfect, although the application is a little different from most lipsticks. I think it will just take some time getting used to it. I don’t know why but the lipstick reminds me of someone’s finger? The part that goes on your lips reminds me of the fingernail. Sorry, I know…TMI! Seriously it’s a pink finger! Haha


Okay so I promised lips swatches if I had time so right above that’s what you are looking at in the pics the lip swatches. I love lip swatches. It’s weird because I can’t really tell what a color looks like when people do lipstick swatches on their arm. So I prefer to look at lip swatch videos. Is that weird? Does anyone else have this problem? So when I research what lipsticks I want to buy I always go on YouTube first and look for lip swatches. It takes me forever usually but the first time I seen Lizzy from WhatWouldLizzyDo you can check her out here if your not familiar with her. I love her! This is another view of her lip swatch.

This is a MAC Paint Pot in Quite Natural I picked this up from watching Lizzy too! I’ve used it to contour and I’ll tell you what. I am in love. Not only is it a amazing contour, it’s also a eyeshadow primer and there is a ton of product in here so this is going to last a while before I would need to repurchase so I’m really lovin’ the multipurpose products. Twofers! Haha

Getting close to the end. This is just the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15. I’ve been wanting to try this I’ve been shopping around seeing and trying out all the different concealers. Let me know what’s your favorite and what you use it for because concealer a do so many different things but each one has its own area it shines in. Such as this MAC one is great for under the eyes highlighting but my dermablend I use to conceal blemishes. Or Kat Von D’s concealer is actually great for both in shade 16 I use to highlight and shade 18 I use for blemishes.

Another item I picked up after watching Lizzy is a MAC Pigment in Vanilla. There is a swatch there on my hand but again no justice for this pigment. It has this beautiful golden gleam when the light hits it.

Lastly I got two new brushes. I love the 266 eyeliner I’m not sure about the pencil brush but I’ll play with it a little more and see what I think but I’m probably going to exchange that one for a different one. It’s just a pain in the butt but we’ll see.
we’ll I hope you enjoyed my little MAC Haul. Let me know what your favorite or must have MAC products are, I’d love to know. Oh, did anyone pick up the Viva Glam Lipglass? Should I go get it? Let me know. I’m on the fence right now.
