Last year, I broke up with my long-time love, Estee Lauder.

I had used Estee Lauder products since high school! 10 years later, I tried something new, with reservations.

My skin is sensitive. From blemishes and rashes to swelling and oil, I've experienced it all! And, still do. I suffer from allergies, but they have improved since moving from my hometown. I may have moved only an hour away, but they seem milder.

I had heard such great things about MAC, but had steered clear for fears of sending my skin into a frenzy.

I am so thankful I took the plunge. It's not that I dislike Estee Lauder (I still prefer the brand's mascara), but Mac has more color options and I think it feels better and lasts longer.

Also, I never wore lipstick up until last year. For some reason, I only ever purchased lipgloss. I L.O.V.E. MAC's liptstick! They are creamy, long-lasting, soothing, and come in many colors! My collection is growing! EEK!

I must be "growing up" (versus "getting older") because Mac's products make me feel younger! haha.

I am often asked what products/colors I use. So, here are a few of my MAC picks:

Carefree (highlighter)
Amber Lights (crease)
Sable (crease)
Carbon (accent)
Add a little spice to your eye liner routine by choosing a color for the bottom. I wear Auto-de-blu.
Vegas Volt (a beautiful peach/coral)
Speed Dial (soft pink)
Pink Lemonade (gloss)
I highly recommend adding gloss/glass over lipstick and MAC offers complimentary colors.
This foundation is a bit thicker/creamier than Estee Lauder's Double Wear, my ex.
Not only did I split with my long-time friend and start wearing lipstick, I also started applying foundation with a brush. I had always used a sponge. I don't know any other way to describe applying foundation with a brush as helping the foundation "stick" to my skin.
MAC has resulted in a problem though... storage! I foresee a need for investing in a usable storage system! Oh, and maybe the problem of wanting to buy more colors of shadow and lipstick/glass, causing a nice dent in my wallet!
Need some application tips? I suggest you watch Jaclyn's videos.
Stay Gorgeous, Friends!
