Mac Mini Haul

I was out running some errands with my mom today and I decided to run to the mall to get some makeup at Mac. Mac is my favorite, favorite place for makeup and I some how always end up there when I go to the mall. Or...I'll just go to the mall for Mac. I've been trying to build my eyeshadow collection and go outside my box of just light colors. I do have some darker colors, but I want to get more everyday darker colors that can be paired with my lighter colors...(my nylons, ego, etc.) So I ended up wanting to get Mystery but the girl put Satin Toupe in my bag and I didn't realize it until I got home...It's fine I already tried it and it's only slightly different..

The satin toupe is a dark brown and it has a nice kind of shimmer in it...I sometimes shy away from darker colors in fear of being too dak but since it is a frost finish it has a shimmer which is nice..I also got Star Velvet which is a very pretty red color. I had this color in a holiday set and just loved it. I would pair it with nylon and it looked really pretty. Below are some swatches of the eyeshadows...they didn't show too well...but you can kind of get a sense of the colors a little better.

I also wanted to get a new blush because I've been using bronzer for the summer. I love, love my bronzer that I'm currently using and I'll put a picture up later on! Anyway, I wanted to get new pink blush and have been looking into the mineralize blushes. I decided to get the color gentle mineralize blush. It has a lot of different light and dark pink tones in it which is very pretty. It's also shimmery which I like in blushes. However, a little of this goes a long way because it's very pink so you just need a little on your brush. Below, is a swatch of the blush so you can see what it looks like:

So that was my mini haul for today. I will be posting later on when my new brushes arrive!
