I am super late with my favourite products from last month, but I promise I have a good reason for it!
I really tried my best to find a dupe for at least one of the products I picked, but I just could not :-(
In my entire collection I couldn't find anything reasonably similar to be considered as a dupe :-(
Which in a way is great news for me, because it means that I got new new products, but on the other side it kind of sabotaged my "monthly favourites + dupe" tradition.
But not all of my efforts have been in vain, because while I can't give you dupes I will give you ALTERNATIVES!!
So let's get into it.
Mac Viva Glam Rihanna 2 lipstick and lipglass - love and obsession at first sight. So beautiful. So unique.
I'm going to get like 4 back-ups of each before they are discontinued after 6 months!
I didn't know, I found out in one of my friend Sarah's https://www.youtube.com/user/nytdollface videos :'-((((
If you want to know more and see swatches, I wrote an entire blogpost about them, so please go to Mac Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Lipstick and Lipglass
Mac Stone lip pencil - it changed my life. With its shadow-creating and contour-camouflaging magical powers, it broadened new horizons for my lip make up.
Mac Spite lipglass - your natural lips, but darker and glossier. In a word, perfection.
Mac Pink Cult blush - very pretty lavender pink. Being completely matte and such a cool shade, it might not appear as the most alive colour to some. But it sure comes to life when it's on our cheeks girls!! The only downside is that I don't see it as equally flattering on darker skintones.
Mac Taupe blush - the BEST shade for contouring light to medium complexions. No orange at all in it.
Shadows in real life fade into grey and black. That's why to create the most realistic shadows on our face - which is what we do with the contouring - we need a flesh-toned pink shade that is darkened and faded into grey, meaning a grey-ish brown a.k.a. our beloved Taupe colour.
Ok, now let's get over this and go back to bronzer for our daily make up game hahaha!! :-D
Mac Breaking Ground cream colour base - a grey lavender that, again, doesn't really send a chill down your spine when you look at in the pan, but it's incredibly beautiful on the eyes <3
Except for the Viva Glam lipstick and lipgloss, all the other products are part of the new Artificially Wild collection, so more pictures and swatches are here Mac Artificially Wild collection
|Mac Stormy Pink paintpot, Mac Breaking Ground cream colour base, Mac Frozen Violet paintpot|
And it's Breaking Ground the product I have found alternatives for, in case you missed out on it or in case your skin wasn't whale-oil-proof-kind-of-dry like mine.
Because on my eyelids Mac cream colour bases work like a dream, but I was thinking that on most other girls a paintpot would perform better.
So if you like Breaking Ground you could also try Stormy Pink paintpot (matte and a little more red-toned), or Frozen Violet paintpot (shimmery and a little darker), one of my all time favourite and most used product :-)
I hope you enjoyed this post!!
