It was my sister's traditional wedding this past weekend. Boy, was it over whelming! I am so glad I got to see my aunts! I missed them tons. No cousins but that's okay, we are all busy. Anyway, on my way to my parents' house, I stopped by the CCO and purchased myself my very first MAC foundation and MAC blush! How exciting huh!!?
I was surprised that the CCO sells permanent items from the MAC store. I had to get Melba since the MUA at Macys put it on me in my Suite Array Haul/Swatch blog below and I loved it.
NOTE: the pictures are not of the same shade but pictures to show how they look like.
I got the NC 30 shade. At first, I purchased NW 30 without looking carefully! When I got into the car, I realized it was the wrong shade! Whoo. So I had to return it. I wish I had read about this foundation before I bought it since... well.. It gives me too much glow when I have combination skin type and I'm trying to stray away from greasy cosmetics. I can't emphasize how happy I am to have a shade that is exactly for me. I don't even care if it gives me a bit of shine because this is my shade!!! I should have found my shade sooner so I wouldn't have to be this excited!
Retail on Mac website is $28
Discounted price at CCO is $19.95!!!
I got Melba which is a matte powder blush that doesn't look dark at all but when you apply it on, it has an orange/brown hue to it like bronzer. Also, a little touch of it on your brush will be all you need! HIGHLY pigmented. I am no kidding.
Retail price on Mac website is $18
Discounted price at CCO is $12 and some change!!!
