A few things from the MAC 25% Off Sale

MAC 25% off sale haul

I love a 25% off sale!

In December, MAC had a sale of 25% off items from its permanent collection. My order only arrived two weeks ago. Living on an island in the middle of the frigid North Atlantic means that sometimes I have to wait ages for online shopping purchases to arrive, plus the holidays and some extremely stormy weather didn’t help matters. I wanted to share with you what I’d picked up at the sale.An eye shadow that had been on my wishlist for a little while was Saddle. I almost always get the Pro Palette Refill Pans. I like keeping my MAC shadows in Pro Palettes and I have several palettes of various sizes. Saddle is described as a “golden orange brown” and is a Matte finish.

I had thought this shade might be too warm for me, until a fabulous MAC SA used it on me while doing my eye makeup. He used a combo of Brule (one of my all time favs),Β  Saddle, and All That Glitters, which I also had. I was never sure how to use All That Glitters but he used it wet with the MAC Fix Plus and used it toward the inner half of my upper eyelid. It was so pretty!

I’ve been loving this matte brown, and also using it over my other fav, MAC’s Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Groundworks and pairing it with Brule.

I’m a huge fan of MAC’s powder blushes, and I think it was Pixiwoo who was talking up the shade Dame in a recent video. Dame is described as “sophisticated blue-pink” and is a Satin finish.

I love this blush! This is a really great shade for fair skin and cool-toned skin. It goes on so smoothly and easily and is mostly matte (which I prefer in a blush) with just a tiny hint of a sheen to it.

Finally, the last item was not really something *new* but rather a repurchase. I reordered my favourite finishing powder, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light. I just love this powder. Its so lightweight and natural looking. Its never heavy or cakey. I love the finish of it. Plus, it actually matches my skintone and doesn’t oxidize in any weird way. I was happy to get to repurchase it at 25% off.

MAC was also offering a free “Proud to be Canadian” tote bag with every order too. I think its super cute!

  1. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is a consistent repurchase for me! It gives such a natural finish – just perfect! I saw that they had those totes at the MAC counter inside Hudson’s Bay – really eye catching. πŸ™‚

  2. That blush looks so pretty, bright pinks can look harsh and that has more mauve, rosy tones. That tote is so cute!
