Personally, I normally pass on the brushes as they sometimes are not made with the same standard of quality in my opinion. But check them out for yourself, they may be better this time around. The packages are normally a good deal. I was hoping the Look in a Box would be included this year as it was done last year, but no such luck. I probably will pass on a lot of it as I have a lot the colors offered. Check your stash before you part with your cash (promise that is going to be my only rhyme). I know I’ve been doing a few Nordies post, in case you were wondering, it’s of my own free will and I have no affiliation aside from adoration (ok, so that was an accidental rhyme, sorry). I’m going to stop chattering now. Happy shopping 😀

  1. Just when I think that I’ve become overly saturated with anything MAC, along you come and post these delicious goodies….darn it girl, you’re making me want to jump back into the MAC bandwagon again! Lol!! Seriously, those coloured brushes are the cutest….just hope their dye is permanent! Love all these exclusives and the tutorials are so helpful…always nice to learn something new, useful and pretty!

    • I know, I did it to myself to start with. I was dead set on not getting MAC this Anniversary Sale, but then I saw that video. It made me take a look at the sets they were offering, and I fell for it hook line and sinker. I rationalized that it was all discounted, so maybe it’s cheaper in the long run to get something. But it has to be something I would use. I was thinking the lipsticks, but I’ve been trying to stay away from buying new lippies because they can turn so quickly. Ugh, the cycle, it’s vicious isn’t it. I wonder about the dyes on the brushes too. I’ve got to go check these things out in person. I’ll try and take pics when I do. My sales rep called for that presale appointment and I dodged the call, I think it’s going to lead to trouble. Poor girl.

  2. I love the videos! I always have difficulty creating the smoky eye look. Because I have Asian eyes, and not deep set like the models, I tend to look punched really easily if I am not careful with blending!!

    • You know I think it’s a combination of technique, product and tools. You need a good densely packed brush so you can control the depth of the shade, and then you need a good blending brush and to get down your technique. Depending on the color and what sort of smokey eye you can do small circular motion to diffuse the color and blend up or that windshield wiper motion to blend it out in a horizontal fashion. And maybe don’t use black, you can do a smokey eye with a beautiful plum, if it has a bit of gold shimmer it looks a bit less punk more girlie. I think that would be a pretty look on your skin tone. But be careful of the color purple, wrong one and bad application makes you look like you just got out of a fight.
