Over the past couple weeks I have accumulated a few goodies from MAC, Lancome, and Estee Lauder. Lovely little group, eh?
Here are the four cheek products I picked up. On the left is the Estee Lauder Gelee in Shimmering Sands ($42) which is the same formula as the Modern Mercury highlighter that came out a few months back. Shimmering Sands is a unique bronzer/blush/highlighter that can actually look quite natural and reminds me of an actual sun-kissed bronze on the cheeks. I adore it.
Next up is Lancome Miel Glace ($30) which is a well known and loved natural blush. It is in the same family as Douceur by NARS and Exposed by Tarte but lacks that pink undertone.
The two MAC blushes include Full of Joy from the new Tres Cheek collection, a lavender blush with a frost finish (although it isn't very frosty, only a slight sheen). This powder blush retails for $20.00. The second blush is the mineralize blush in Pressed Amber, a part of the Semi-Precious collection that came out last summer. I always meant to pick it up but never did and was lucky enough to see it at a CCO this weekend. It retailed for $23.50 and was only about $16.00 at the CCO.
Swatches from L to R:
MAC Pressed Amber, Estee Lauder Shimmering Sands, Lancome Miel Glace, MAC Full of Joy
The two lip products I picked up include MAC Lustreglass in Pinkarat ($14.50), a longtime favorite which I continuously repurchase. It's a gorgeous gold flecked pink that makes your lips glossy and full looking. The other item was the MAC Reel Sexy lipstick which is an amplified formula and part of the new Reel Sexy collection ($14.50). Reel Sexy reminds me of Jazzed, a creamy peachy orange that is fun for spring.
I also picked up two eye shadows thanks to Back to MAC. I grabbed Digit and Antiqued. Digit is a satin purple tinged frosty white and Antiqued is a veluxe pearl that is a reddish bronze. MAC shadows retail for $15.00.
Swatches L to R:
