BOBBlogChallenge Week 5 - Princess Product

For this week’s #BOBBlogChallenge hosted by Samantha Johnson of AllTheBuzz we were asked to pick one favourite high end product either makeup or skincare so I have chosen the Mac lipstick range.

I have chosen this because as I said before in my week 3 post, every girl should have at least one Mac lipstick in their favourite shade. I only have 2 at the moment but plan on building my collection in the coming months.

I received a voucher for BT2 off my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas which came with a free make-up lesson. It wasn’t until mid-January that I actually went and got this lesson and purchased my products.

I bought my 2 mac lipsticks and a golden bronze powder. The two shades I bought were:

Lustre Viva Glam V

I’ve always loved neutral shades of any make-up and this would be my general go-to shade. So this lipstick was absolutely perfect for me. I only really have to use it once with no top-ups during the day and it always retains its colour. If I was going on a night out or something I obviously would top-up to keep that shininess to it but it’s not really needed for just general day wear.

Next shade I got is a more vibrant shade which is Matte Dangerous

I absolutely love this shade! Since I dyed my hair red again I really wanted to get a more vibrant shade of lipstick and was dying to get this shade for a while. When it is first applied the colour is so bright and gorgeous! Generally it would need a little top up because as you eat and drink during the day it does fade slightly. I have to top up a bit more often with it because I smoke so just from doing that it seems to fade a bit but not much. I just like to keep the colour nice and full looking on my lips.

Both lipsticks cost €19 each in BT2 on Henry Street, Dublin. I can’t wait to go back and get more and build my collection of mac lipstick! I also love the bronzing powder I got and will continue to use it. The Mac range is such high quality and while they are a bit expensive, they are very much worth it.

A couple of swatches I did of both shades

Well that’s it for my week 5 of the BOBBlogChallenge! I think that most people are already in tune with the Mac obsession of make-up lovers all over but I felt like this was the one product I really felt I should write about this week.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed.
Excuse the awful bags under my eyes, I haven't been well and college takes it's tole on a girl :P
