This weekend, I kind of geeked out. My fam and I went to ComiCon Toronto, and I also geeked out over some new makeup. Of course. To attend ComiCon, I bypassed lipstick (gasp!) and went the gloss route for once, deciding to test drive one of MAC’s new Mineralize Glass lip glosses. These new glosses just launched last week.
The colour I wore to ComiCon was New Love Be Nice a beautiful reddish pink. I paired the gloss with an old favourite, Soar lip pencil. The combination was awesome in my opinion. (Updated: Be Nice is another colour I am testing out. Mixed up the two when I wrote this originally)
I am not a big fan of MAC lipglass as I find them too sticky for my liking. However, these Mineralize Glasses don’t feel tacky or thick, and are non-sticky. Hooray! New Love
Be Nice offers a sheer wash of pinky red, and the shine is just divine. Given my pigmented lips, I find gloss works best if I wear a liner. I outline my lips ever so slightly with my selected liner, apply the teeniest amount of liner inside the lip line, blot and then apply the gloss. I love the effect.
Along with the gloss, I also started test driving NARS Narcissist eyeshadow palette and the Hourglass Ambient Blush in Diffused Heat, two items I caved in and purchased last week. I just couldn’t help it after reading and watching countless number of positive reviews. I see so many amazing possibilities with the NARS shadows. As for the Ambient blush, let’s just say I feel the need to acquire more.
I definitely have no regrets whatsoever about my haul and am pleased as punch about the formula of the MAC gloss. Now, here’s a look at me at ComiCon, pretending to be the Emperor. Do I look scared of the Storm Trooper or what?!
