Review | Mac So Sweet So Easy, Vegas Volt & Brave | prettylittlewriter

I apologise to those of you that may have missed me blogging (if that's possible!) but I have had a very busy couple of months moving house and completing my English Literature Degree. 

Today I realised on the new Facebook memories section that it was a year ago today that I begun writing this blog, and my first ever post was a beauty look. I thought that today would be a brilliant day to finally make a come back and begin updating this page regularly as I used to.
If you would like to check out my first ever blog post, follow the link here.
The photo quality is pretty poor due to not gaining a good camera until Christmas last year. 

So, without further ado, here is today's post!

Mac Review

I have quite recently purchased some Mac products, one of which has become a staple in my daily make up routine. 

The Mac So Sweet So Easy Cremeblend Blush is a brilliant rose shade perfect for my pale skin tone. It gives a natural glow to my cheeks without looking like a child has painted it on, which is often the case with certain blush types.
I just dab it onto the apples of my cheeks and then along the top of my cheekbone towards my hairline to give a gorgeous natural pink pop to my cheeks. This has now become a staple in my make up routine, I find the consistency so easy to apply and there's no risk of it getting on your clothes during application like there can be with powder blushes.

So Sweet So Easy Blush & Lipsticks

New additions to my lipstick collection!

These next two purchases were something I had bought on a whim, I wasn't entirely sure what the colours were going to be like.
However, upon receiving them, I have found that they are both highly pigmented and are a good match for my skin tone.

  Vegas Volt is a great summer shade, it has both red and orange undertones which give a more elegant and subtle shade on the lips, adding a pop of colour to any make up look. 
Brave on the other hand is a gorgeous nude with a hint of pink to create colour but still looking natural. If you are a lover of Velvet Teddy but feel you'd like a little more colour, Brave is a great choice!

So there you have it!
I hope you can forgive me for being away so long, I promise that I am going to upload posts much more on the regular from this point onwards, be on the look out for another post this weekend on my staple Brow product!
