The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is one of the craziest shopping centres I have ever been in. It’s an entire mall made to look like ancient Rome, complete with a painted faux sky ceiling. There’s a mix of high-end shops – like Burberry, Loubouton, Versace, Dior – and stores regular people like me shop in like H&M, GAP, Sephora, and most exciting of all a MAC Pro store.
I’d never been to a Pro store and it was so cool to see all of the colourful Pro products. I asked the SA about some of the popular Pro products and she immediately asked if I’d tried Peachstock lipstick which she said looks good on almost everyone. I tried it on and I really liked it. I was nervous about the word “peach” in the name, but it has a lot of browney-beigeyness to it, and even though I am quite pale, it doesn’t wash me out. It looks very natural.
She also recommended the MAC Sculpting Powder and choose the shade “Bone Beige” for me.
The Sculpting Powder is soo soft! Bone Beige is a lovely shade for fair skin. When I was going through the pics from my trip, I saw one and wondered – hey my blush looks good, what was I wearing? and I remembered that was the day I went to MAC and the SA had applied the Sculpting Powder. I’m wearing Peachstock too. Here’s what they looked like on:
I also picked up a couple of lip liners because I have a MAC lipliner problem, Dervish Lip Pencil, a pretty, cool brownish-pink, and Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Staunchly Stylish, a rosey, pinkey-brown. These aren’t Pro products though.
Here are swatches of all four:
Here’s the price breakdown with approximate $CAD equivalent compared to what I would normally pay in Canada:
- Dervish Lip Pencil – $15 USD ($16 CAD, regularly $18 CAD)
- Staunchly Stylish Pro Longwear Lip Pencil – $19.50 USD ($21 CAD, regularly $23 CAD)
- Peachstock Lipstick – $16 USD ($17 CAD, regularly $19 CAD)
- Bone Beige Sculpting Powder – $16.50 USD ($18 CAD, regularly $19.50 CAD)
So I saved about $7.50 by shopping in the US 🙂
I hope you’re enjoying hearing about my Vegas shopping escapades! I have a few more posts to come.
