A Few Recent Things From MAC

MAC Sweet Satisfaction, Desire, and Uninterrupted
This post could easily have been hashtagged Youtube Made Me Do It. I was enticed into purchasing all of these MAC items, two of them by YouTube. The third was by one of those tempting emails MAC keeps sending me that I am evidently helpless to resist. Lets start with my YouTube-inspired purchases.

I saw a Pixiwoo video that featured MAC Uninterrupted Pro Longwear eye shadow. The lovely LisalisaD1 has also talked about Uninterrupted a couple of times now and also recently raved about Sweet Satisfaction, another Pro Longwear. I had never tried the Pro Longwear shadows. Both of these were on my MAC wishlist.

Lisa described Uninterrupted as one of those shades that looks kind of “blah” in the pan, but looks awesome on. I love shades like that. MAC describes it as “dark camel” and its a semi-matte finish. Its quite an interesting shade of brown, that I find really brings out the green in my eyes. It isn’t completely matte but has the tiniest hint of a sheen.

Sweet Satisfaction is “soft neutral beige” and is a frost finish. Its a beautiful neutral shadow that I think most people would totally love. Don’t be scared by the whole frost thing – it isn’t glittery. It just has a shimmery finish.

I am super impressed with the Pro Longwear formula. Both shadows are so buttery and easy to apply and blend yet don’t have any fall-down. They are crazy long-wearing (I always wear a primer). MAC shadows are just my favourite. The Pro Longwear compacts are $25.00 CAD.

My third purchase was totally due to an Artist Tips email from MAC promoting their lustre lipsticks, and if you’ve been following me you probably already know MAC lustres are my favourite lipsticks of all time. The email featured Desire lipstick, described as “warmed burgundy wine”, right up my plum lipstick loving alley!

Its in the same family as some of my other lustre favs like Capricious and Plumful. Its darker, and a more vampy burgundy plum compared to either of those. I love it!

Do you have any recent YouTube Made Me Do It purchases?

Thanks for reading!

  2. Uninterrupted is one of my favorite shadows, it works with everything and I love how warm it is.

    I recently bought the fragrance from the EstΓ©e Lauder Bronzed Goddess collection because of Dustin Hunter (who is completely delightful) and I suspect that MAC’s Desire is going to be a Nerdy Librarian Girl Made Me Buy it kind of situation in the near future. That’s a gorgeous shade and the Lustre finish is wonderful.

  3. Sweet Satisfaction has been on my wishlist for a while now! The only PL eyeshadow I have is Legendary Black, which is amazing.

    Desire looks great!

  4. Interrupted will be a “YouTube Made Me Buy it” item next year – I too, had been seeing raves about it and it’s such an unusual shade that I don’t own anything like that in my stash. I own Sweet Satisfaction and it’s gorgeous as an all over lid wash – I agree, the Pro Longwear formula is fantastic. I’ve been avoiding YouTube lately – it would be detrimental to my No-Buy! πŸ˜‹
