i've mentioned it before on my blog but there's an estee lauder corporate store that you have to be a member of to even walk into. estee lauder companies include not only estee lauder but MAC, clinique, bobbi brown, origins and a whole lot more. the corporate store doesn't have everything in every colour (not by a long shot) but it does have a selection from most of their brands and they're all significantly discounted! they had a huge sale recently but despite my best efforts i couldn't make it there so i decided to go the following weekend and see what they had left over.
i walked away with a whole lot of (almost all) MAC products that i really love, especially the mineralize skinfinish! apparently stereo rose was a really popular limited edition shade so i was surprised to find it in the store and i put it straight in my basket as soon as i saw it. the all for glamour kit on the other hand i probably could have gone without but i got sucked in by the cute packaging, what can i say?
MAC's mineralize skinfinishes were made in a whole range of shades so you can use them as a powder, blush, bronzer, highlighter, etc depending on your skin tone and the colour you're using. naturally i'll be using this colour as a blush and the first time i wore it i could see straight away why it's been so popular. it's the prettiest colour with a gold shimmer through that looks like a blush and highlighter on your cheeks in one product. it's just beautiful!
the aurora mineralize eyeshadow looks so pretty in the pan but probably a bit hit or miss as an actual eyeshadow shade, but when you mix all the colours together it comes out a beautiful medium shimmery brown. the cream eyeshadow is a deep metallic bronze and the marilyn eyeshadow is a really pretty light champagne colour. and not pictured again but the lipglass up in the first photo in riviera life is a lovely really bright orange-y coral colour which is perfect because i'm obsessed with coral coloured lip and cheek products right now.
