Mac Haul.

 Hello my lovelies! I hope you're all having a great summer so far. As I mentioned in my previous haul post, I would do one more haul post in July because it was my birthday month and I bought a few make up goodies from Mac that I wanted to share with you guys!
  I'll start off with the two things that I didn's actually buy but I got them with the Back 2 Mac program, if you're not familiar with the B2M program it's very simple, you can return 6 empty Mac containers to a Mac store and you can get a free eyeshadow, well in Greece you can only exchange them for an eyeshadow but I'm pretty sure in other countries you can also exchange them for a lipstick. I had 12 empties so I got 2 eyeshadows, I got Amber Lights (the left one) and Woodwinked (the right one). Amber Lights is a shimmery bronzed gold shade and Woodwinked is more of a frost light bronze.
I was in need of a true matte peachy blush, 6 years ago I used to have Mac Peaches but when I hit pan I never repurchased it. I was searching for a cheaper dupe but since I couldn't find one I decided to repurchase it. It's a very beautiful orangey-peachy shade, completely matte that goes with every make up look. If you have warm skintone you should definitely get it!
Speaking of peachy shades, when I went into the Mac store I was determined to get a coral lipstick, and I was sure I was going to get Costa Chic but I when I saw Flamingo I completely changed my mind! Not that I don't want Costa Chic as well but Flamingo is a unique coral shade that I haven't try before. It's almost a neon coral pink with no shimmers, and it looks amazing if you have a tan.
Last but not least I got a new concealer/highlighter because I run out of my Sephora Smoothing and Brightening Concealer, I got the Mac Prep and Prime Highlighter in Bright Forecast which is almost identical, the only difference is that the Sephora one is a bit more peachy, the Mac one is not as salmon toned but it's more brightening for sure! I love using that type of pen/concealer/highlighters for my undereye circles, I know they're not supposed to be used alone but I think they work just fine on their own. I have really dark circles, I don't find that they cover as much as other, more high coverage concealers, but somehow they manage to cover and bighten the darkness just fine. If you have dark under eye circles, especially brown ones, you should try one of these pens, you'd be surprised!

Here are some pictures with swatches of all the things that I got:

I don't usually go to Mac, not as much I used to when I was younger, but this summer as you can see I did a small damage, some of them were essentials and some others were not , but hey it was my birthday, I was allowed to splurge a bit! Tell me have you tried any of these products? I want to know!

  2. Όλα τα χρώματα είναι όμορφα!!μεγειά!
    Έχω μια απορία σχετικά με το back to mac.Αν βγάλω τις σκιές από την πλαστική συσκευασία και τις βάλω σε δική μου παλέτα,μπορώ να πάω πίσω τις άδειες συσκευασίες ή πρέπει να περιέχουν και το μεταλλικό δοχειάκι της σκιάς;Αν ξέρεις θα ήθελα πολύ να μου πεις γιατί έχω σκιές και θέλω να το κάνω έτσι!Ευχαριστώ!

  4. Μμμμ αυτό το Mac Prep and Prime Highlighter πρέπει να το δοκιμάσω! Νομίζω ότι δέχονται και μόνο το πλαστικό για back2mac, πρόσφατα διάβασα σε μπλογκ για ελληνίδα που το έκανε αλλά δε θυμάμαι όνομα. Btw, ελπίζω να ξαναβάλουν και τα κραγιόν στο παιχνίδι!
