MAC is running a promotion for $10 off of foundations and it ends at 3:00am EST on 9/28/2021. No promo code is required, the prices are already marked down on the website. So if you need to restock or have been wanting to try any of the MAC foundations, this is a good sale. They also offer free shipping over $25. So any foundation, with the exception of the stick foundation (because it is on clearance), will qualify for free shipping.
At this point in history, I’m sure a lot of people don’t need a review of this foundation. But there are always new people just getting into makeup, or even just discovering MAC. So maybe this can still be helpful for someone out there.
On to the review, the swatches, and how the shades C8 and NC45 look on me.
Let me first just say that you absolutely don’t NEED to buy any lipstick today. There will be another sale in the future when you either want or need a new lipstick.
But, for those that do want to participate, let’s talk recommendations.
Drugstore Pick: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, $4.97 @ Walmart
While this lipstick is technically part of Ulta’s National Lipstick Day promotion ($5.94), it still costs less to buy this lipstick at Walmart ($4.97) or Target ($4.59-$4.99) with no special sale required.
Both of the products I’m raving about today are limited edition products. I know that if you like what I have to say about these products that you won’t be able to buy them, but fear not, I am going to give you some alternatives.
These MAC products have become some of my favorites to use regularly. I consistently set aside products to use in a makeup bag so that getting ready is easy. So as I was getting ready the other day, I noticed that I didn’t want to use what I had set aside and went to grab this MAC bronzer. Then, on Thursday, as I was about to use the Laura Mercier Roseglow Highlighter (swatched and reviewed here), I decided to use the MAC Extra Dimension Highlight from the Selena collection instead. I wanted to see which of these two highlighters accentuated texture less since the MAC had been a go to before I bought the Laura Mercier. After that, it dawned on me that I have been grabbing these two products over other items a lot. I never really expected either of them to be such staples.
