black & nude27.10.2014
These days I’m really into the all natural look. I still have a bit of tan left from the days spent in France, so I’m using that as an opportunity to go bare-faced (or with as little foundation as possible). Liner/eyeshadow is optional but a few swipes of blush, bit of nude lipstick and two coats of mascara is what my current daily make-up routine usually consists of. My fav nude lipstick is disappearing at a very fast rate, so until I get to buy it again I thought I’d find a quick replacement. I stumbled upon the one pictured above from Ingrid Cosmetics – the texture is almost the same as MAC’s Creme d’Nude and the color is equally beautiful, just a tad more pink. I linked to it below so you can check it out too, I highly recommend it!
As my previous mascara was running dry, I contemplated my next purchase. Before I actually got around to doing that, MAC sent me a gift package containing these mascaras as a thank you for being their customer and writing about their products! The thing that pleasantly surprised me is that it was truly just a gift – no strings attached. Even though I am not obliged to blog about it, I still wanted to share this lovely gesture. Plus, I tried these mascaras and let’s just say I won’t be looking for anything else any time soon.
