Hello, and welcome to my very first blog post! It feels so odd saying that because up until some months ago, this whole social media thing was alien to me. But a dull afternoon led me to snap a picture with my iPhone and off-handedly upload it to an Instagram page which I created whilst waiting for my leftover spaghetti to heat up in the microwave. And just like that, Wands & Wings was created and I got hooked on this whirlwind journey of social media. And now, 9 months later and after countless speculations, I’ve finally taken the plunge and started a blog page, which is meant to be somewhat of a continuum to my Instagram page.
Now, onto the actual blogging…
For my first post I thought I’d share with you some Mac beauty stuff I purchased over the weekend (who doesn’t love a good old Mac haul?). I never intended to pop into a Mac store last Saturday, but as it happened, following a busy afternoon shopping, as we were heading back towards the car-park, I spotted a Mac store across the street. Didn’t I need a new foundation? I had almost forgotten! I dashed into the store after promising my husband I will only be 5 minutes (he hates makeup shopping, how inconvenient!). But once I stepped inside I forgot all about him and casually perused and swatched countless items, almost forgetting what I went in for. A solid 20 minutes later, and to the utter dismay of my husband, I ended up paying for the foundation, a replacement mascara, a new powder, and a travel-size Prep + Prime Fix+ because the salesgirl conveniently pointed out it was 50% off (and who can resist a bargain, really?)
The Mac Studio Fix Fluid foundation is one that I have been repurchasing numerous times. It’s got medium-full coverage and a matte finish which is perfect for my oily skin. And it lasts a good workout, so five points for its staying power! The In Extreme Dimension Lash mascara is amazing for giving a full-lash effect without much effort at all. I like to do my upper body workouts at the gym not at my vanity table, you know. The Mineralize Foundation loose powder is one that I’ve never tried before, but I loved its soft cashmere-texture, and the salesgirl promised me it is good for baking makeup, not that I do much of it – in the kitchen or anywhere else. But I am excited to give it a go and see. I have very high hopes for this 30ml bottle of the Prep and Prime Fix + because I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. It’s a primer, a setting spray, an eyeshadow enhancer, and a glow mist all in one, so I’m sure I will get my money’s worth out of it, one way or another. So thank you, salesgirl-in-a-messy-top-bun-and-purple-lipstick; I almost missed out on this gem!
What is your latest Mac purchase? I’d love to know!
