It’s another ShopaHAULic Saturday! I’m so excited with my recent MAC Wash and Dry Makeup Haul.
I already ordered some of these items from Nordstrom, but I couldn’t wait for the package to arrive. So when I found out that the collection is already available at my local MAC counter, I went there without hesitation.
I’m so glad that I did because I was able to buy the highlighting powder which was already sold out at Nordstrom. The other items I bought were backup. I love the design of this collection because it looks so cheerful. Therefore, backup-worthy in my opinion.
Two items in this haul are not from the MAC Wash & Dry Collection, which you’ve probably already noticed in the photos. They are the only boxes that are not colorful. 🙂
One is the MAC Huggable Lipcolour in Play It Soft. It is classified as a bright coral red with a creamy gel formula. This moisturizing lipstick with a rich, glossy shine boosts collagen, leaving lips looking soft, smooth and supple. It promises to stay luminous for up to six hours.
The other item is the MAC Prep+Prime Skin Refined Zone. It’s a light, oil-free emulsion that helps cloak visible pores while controlling oil and shine. I actually bought this for my husband so he can use it on days when he’s not wearing BB cream. Yeah, he likes using BB cream just like the Koreans do! I still couldn’t get him to try on eyeliners, though. 😉
MAC WASH AND DRY MAKEUP HAUL
The highlight of this collection for me is the Highlight Powder in Freshen Up. I had been devastated when I found out that it was already sold out at both Nordstrom and Macy’s. It’s a good thing that I was able to buy it when the collection became available locally. The three shades in Freshen Up are mid-coral, fuzzy peach and pastel banana.
Another item that I didn’t order from Nordstrom is the Wash & Dry Powder Blush in Hipness. I thought that it was just another peachy blush that I don’t think I need in my collection. But when I saw it and swatched at the counter, I changed my mind. It was a beautiful light peach with fine golden shimmers and a frost finish. It’s also quite pigmented, so a little goes a long way.
From the four Wash & Dry lipsticks, I chose Morange and Steam Heat. Morange is a vivid orange with an Amplified Creme formula and Steam Heat is a vivid yellow red with a satin finish.
I also bought two of the four Wash & Dry Lipglass shades. Girl On Board is a light creme nude, while Domestic Diva is a frosty, watery pink.
The new Wash & Dry Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Trio appealed to me, but I didn’t want to get all the three shades in the range. So I ended up getting only one. The colors in Permanent Press are white beige, brown bronze and black with gold pearls.
MAC WASH AND DRY: THE MODERN BROW
I also bought two items from the MAC Wash & Dry: The Modern Brow Collection.
One is the MAC Wash & Dry Studio Sculpt Defining Bronzing Powder in Delicates. It is a neutral deep bronze with fine golden shimmer. This is silky matte but has a luminous finish. I love that it’s packaging comes with a mirror which is very handy for touch-ups.
The other item I bought from this collection is the MAC 125 Split Fibre Dense Face Brush. Half of the brush is natural while the other half is made of synthetic fibres. I think that this will work perfectly with both the highlighting powder and the Studio Sculpt Defining Bronzing Powder.
There are just too many items in this collection, that there’s an item or two that’s bound to appeal to you. If you want to see the rest of the items in this collection (as well as The Modern Brow collection), you may click the links below:
Now all we need is a golden tan! 🙂
