FOTD: MAC Trip Warm

Hello, my Pretties!

I have very few MAC items in my makeup collection and I just got them all last December. I got some for my birthday on the 21st and then more four days later on Christmas. I have not bought any more MAC since then. In all honesty, it is just too pricey for me and my budget.

So, since I have very little MAC, I don't like to use it all the time. I don't know, I guess I'm trying to make it last as much as I can. LOL. And while I usually use it for special occasions and outings, I decided to use it today just because.

Today I used my MAC Trip Warm Eye Shadows 6-pan palette.

I know it's noon on a Thursday and I'm just here at home wearing a tee shirt but this is a really nice look for a date night. I haven't been on one in ages but I assume this would be a fitting look!

I love these eye shadows very much. I love the way they all blend together so effortlessly. All the shadows can be worn together, as I did, and it looks pretty. Very complimentary. I'd have to say that Bagatelle, Expensive Pink, and Trax are my favorite!

I would say these shadows are on the neutral side. Nothing to bold and crazy bright so this would be a wonderful day time look as well, just switch up the red lip for a nude gloss.

I'm laughing at myself now because it's pouring rain outside, can't go anywhere. I'm just here at home in jeans and flip flops watching Yo Gaba Gaba with my girls and I'm wearing red lipstick! Haha, whatever makes you feel pretty, I say.

Luv & Luk,

  8. @Ev, yes, ma'am, the colors are so warm. They are really beautiful. Especially Expensive Pink with the duochrome it has :)

    @frugalspender19, girl, I cried when I opened my gifts and saw MAC. I thought I'd never own MAC! But I only have it because they were gifts. I buy E.L.F. and L.A. Colors, not MAC. LOL. And thank you for the sweet comment :)

    @Wendy, thank you, hun. I love this lip gloss but I never wear it out! LOL. It's too much for me. I don't have much MAC but maybe I'll do a little MAC collection post someday. I don't think I'm going to get more :)

    @Joann, LOL, thank you! It's a guilty please. Just something I wear for fun...only when I stay home :)

    @Miranda, thank you! Yes, all the colors in this palette are really pretty. Very wearable, day or night!

    @Vintage Makeup, thank you, my dear! I laugh because I think the red makes my lips look bigger! LOL.

    @Kassandra, I actually laughed out loud when I read your comment! Red is sexy, I love red. On my lips, that's a once in a blue moon type of thing! Haha :)

  10. @Tiffany, oh, it's so easy, girlie! There's nothing to it. At least, not the way I do it. LOL. I just use a small brush, like an eyeliner brush, and sweep on the shadow. That's it. I like to do green, blue, or purple when I do a neutral look. It just adds a little something special. Try it! If you do a post on it, let me know, I'd love to see it!

  11. @Purple Eye Diamond, thank you! And yes, try it. This palette is really pretty. I used all the colors and they all go so perfectly with each other. I think this is a good MAC item to own. :)
