MAC Strength – Taupe Shape Blush


A perfect contouring shaded for the cool toned.

I’ve been a little scared of contouring, but after watching the demo at the MAC techniques night I decided to give it a go. Taupe Shape is a lovely cool beigey-brown with a very subtle hint of shimmer (it is a satin after all). It seems to work well on my super pale skin as a subtle contour, so it’s a winner in my books.

Sadly it’s LE – boooo!

Cheeky! Recent MAC purchases

MAC has released a heap of LE collections lately.  I’m trying to be good and limit myself to one piece per collection, so far so good!  I picked two cheek products, as Stunner (from MAC Me Over) has been a bit lonely.  I’ve been a little afraid of blush – I knew a girl who would always OD on it which put me off, but here we go!

MAC for Daphne Guinness – Blush Ombre Azalea Blossom (light cool pink)


I love this, it’s perfect for days with bright fuschia lips

MAC Naturally – Mineralize Skinfinish in Redhead (gold to salmon pink degrade)


This is lovely and warm, but not orange.  I looked at blonde as well, but gave it a skip.  I couldn’t really see that much of a difference between them when applied with a brush, just that redhead was slightly warmer.  So I figured I’d go with something different.  I’m also trying to branch into warmer colours, so this is my baby step 🙂
