Returning with a MAC bag in hand..

When I slowly packed up my blogging bag pack a while ago, I didn't think I would miss it so much, and over time realise what a huge part of my life blogging had become. People have asked why I don't vlog and blog any longer- at first I had excuses such as moving out of my parents home for the first time, finding my feet and making home purchases rather than makeup purchases. Now, quite a while later and life away from my parents home is the norm, I feel I have time again to blog and I can't make excuses any more. I am so excited to be sitting down in a comfy chair to write a post again. I have been contemplating this for a while and now it's actually happening! I hope to develop my blog by adding some health, fitness and life posts.

Now I know I have been gone for a while, but I have still been keeping a close eye on the blogging and YouTube world. I know we have moved on from the days when MAC was Holy Grail. However, why not come back with the good old stuff! I haven't bought anything in the MAC store for a very long time, but I start my new job very soon and I decided to use it as an opportunity to go for a classier, more stylish image that fits more with my age. I love fun and bright lipsticks, but decided I needed some more subtle nudes into my collection.

MAC Mineralize Blush- Gentle- £20
I am obsessed with blush at the moment, and after seeing the colour pay off from the Mineralize Blushes, I definitely wanted to take one home. I decided to pick up the shade 'Gentle,' it's a beautiful pink with a rose gold sheen to it. It is quite shimmery, so if you don't like shimmer, these blushes probably won't be for you. I love a shimmery cheek, so these blushes are perfect for me.

MAC Lipstick- Cosmo- £15
The first being 'Cosmo,' which is on the left, it's a Amplified Creme which is a finish I love because it's so creamy and bold. It's a deep red nude colour which really seems to enhance the natural lip colour. I would say it would be brighter the paler your skin. Today I have fake tan on so it is quite subtle but enhancing, I can imagine that if I applied it with my natural skin colour it would be much bolder.

MAC Lipstick- Hot Gossip- £15
I also picked up 'Hot Gossip' (below) which is much more of a pinky-coloured nude. It also has a slight shimmer to it which I really loved because it is every so subtle. It is a Cremesheen finish, which is another one of my favourite finishes. I can see me wearing it as my new everyday colour because it is such a lovely colour.

So that's all from me today, though I have lots of posts coming up so looking forward to next time!
