MAC Haul

If anyone knows me, then you know that MAC is my go to for just about anything in the makeup world. So naturally, any excuse I get to go on a little MAC shopping spree makes me one happy girl! My birthday was last month and my parents gave me a MAC gift card (the gift that keeps on giving!) I was waiting to use the gift card for the highly anticipated Kelly Osbourne collection scheduled to be released on June 2, but I was too late and everything I wanted sold out very quickly online, but don't fret; I did somehow manage to snag everything I wanted when it released a week later at Macy's. You can see everything I purchased on my Instagram page here.

Of course, I still found good use of my gift card and found some new beauties and some timeless classics to add to my collection. 
 Fix+ is a must have in my option! This was a repurchase, my first bottle lasted what seemed like ages. I use this as my daily moisturizer before I go in with my primers and foundation; this helps hydrates my face without giving me that added oil that most lotion based moisturizers do. This is also a must have if you work with pigments or lose eye shadows. Spray this on a stiff shader brush and then go in with your pigment and it gives your eyes a almost wet look, it really makes the pigments stand out. I love this stuff and will continue to repurchase. 
Pro-Longwear Concealer  Another repurchase for me, probably my 6th tube to be honest. I can't live without this stuff! It has a technology to prevent creasing under the eyes (this is were I apply it). I wear shade NC20 to brighten up my under eye area; I also use this to highlight in the necessary areas as well. This product doesn't move or crease throughout the day, but I still set it with a powder, just because I'm a oily monster at times and need extra coverage. :) 
I had to order some new lippies to added to my very large collection. I'm loving oranges at the moment for summer; and these colors are perfect. Sushi Kiss was part of the limited collection that came out last year I believe called "All about Orange" and they recently made this color, along with a few other permanent to their lipstick line.  
Morange; (Amplified Cream) "Loud Month Orange". This color could be very intimidating to most, but I love bold, vibrant colors. 
Sushi Kiss; (Satin) Midtonal Coral Cream. I actually can't wear satin formulas on my lips alone, I have to pair them with a gloss or they become patchy looking over time. So I'm loving Sushi Kiss paired with the NXY Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler.
The last few things I purchased were to go in my MAC PRO Palettes. I love these palettes, they are more affordable than a Z-Palette, I suggest you take a look here if you have not checked these out before. 

Nylon Eyeshadow; (Frost)Pale gold with a icy shimmer. This is a highly pigments highlight shade, can be used all over the lid or to highlight the brow bone or liner corners of the eyes. Also with a light hand this could be used as a cheek highlight. 
Swiss Chocoloate Eyeshadow; (Matte) Mutted reddish brown. This is a staple in the MAC world, if you don't own this get it. great for all skin tones to darken the outer V and blend into the crease for a smokey eye. 
Melba Blush; (Matte) Soft Coral-Peach. Since I received this in the mail, I have forgotten about the millions of other blushes that I own. This is the prettiest blush, its great for skin tones fair to medium. I have been loving to highlight with my BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal then go in with Melba, its PERFECTION!!!! Perfect combo for summer.
