Mini MAC Haul + FOTD : Quick Random Look

Hello everyone, how was your weekend? I've had quite a surprisingly good one, although I had to work as usual. Must be due to the fact that I was a good girl and went to bed earlier (than I usually would), so that I was kinda well-rested. It's so true, that sufficient sleep is one of the most important factors for good health. Now, if I could only overcome being a night person. :/

Let's see what's my Mini MAC Haul all about! ;) This is what I got: MAC Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation in NC 15 and MAC #130 Short Duo Fibre Brush.


I used to hate cream foundations, since all I have tried so far always felt heavy, made my pores look huge for some weird reason, and despite the rich moisturizing textures, they accentuated any dry flakes.


I've used MAC Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation twice until now, and it seems to be the first cream foundation ever that works for me! It is really lightweight, with a somewhat fresh watery feel when you apply it. It covers my pores really nicely, and doesn't accentuate any flakes at all! I'll do a more detailed review in a separate post later on!

Now, onto the random look I did last week! I opened my drawer and it so happened, the palette that I picked right off the bat was Jill Stuart Illuminance Eyes 09 Dazzling Moon. Oh my, I neglected it for too long!

So, what do you think about my complexion here? I used the MAC Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation. I feel there is a slight whitish/pinkish cast on my face in the photos, which might be due to the SPF that this foundation contains.


My eyes were really puffy that day, hence I didn't want to experiment around. I applied the lightest shade of the palette onto the whole eyelid. Added the darkest shade on the outer corners to add definition, tightlined the upper lashline, applied mascara, and I was done with the eye makeup!


Excuse my frizzy hair! Uhm... I think it's time to get my bangs trimmed.


I believe the reason that my eye makeup always end up on the natural side is the fact that I don't entirely line my waterline. I do love the look of completely lined eyes a lot (Fuz rocks the entirely lined eyes look in my opinion), but I feel that it's just not very flattering for my eye shape.

So, I'm used to line only about 1/2 of the lower lashline (stronger on the outer parts), which I feel creates bigger looking eyes.


I'm wearing Revlon Colorburst Lipstick ~ Carnation here, which was a gift from Catherine. Isn't the rosy pink color beautiful? The texture is really smooth and moisturizing too! I highly recommend this color to everyone with fair Asian skintone - it's so flattering!


Thank you again, Catherine! I ♥ it!

hey i love your hair and the lip colour very very very much!!!

MAC brushes haven't really done much for me. I tried the famous 188 but it failed big time... *_*

Jess said...

jojoba:
Aww... thank you for your compliment about my hair! I actually think that the length sucks! :p

Popcorn said...

I have been really wanting that Mac brush! hahaha The foundation seems good too! awwww the JS palette was neglected. hehehe I have neglected mine too. I will have to use it soon! hehe Love your look!

Sheila P said...

Please do a review on the 130. I'm considering getting it but I also want the 131 and a blush brush (129 maybe).

Thanks in advance =D

2.5 weeks to go until I see you in person!! HEHEHE

Babybubblz said...

Love the lip colour a lot! I've been eyeing the MAC brush too! I love that it's so much more dense, but looks like it will take longer to do face makeup, do you think so?

lilluna5416 said...

always such pretty FOTD! love em

littlewing said...

Have I mentioned I love your FOTDs? :D The lipstick looks gorgeous on you!

And I've never been able to get cream compact foundations to work either, they always end up accentuating the wrong stuff. :X

Pretty Pouts said...

you have really nice lips, they look so healthy and shiny =) oh and the foundation suits you really well!

izumi said...

oooo the 130! nice :D

love the look~ natural looks are super pretty. and your lip color is on point, as usual (:

Lulu said...

oo this foundation looks promising! i also hate cream foundation and steer away from them, maybe I should give this a try? 130 brush looks so nice! *drool*

I love your lips :) catherine is the sweeties. isn't revlon color burst great? I was totally surprised that it worked so well and felt so light as a drug store lippie!

Zuuchini said...

your complexion looks nice with this new cream foundation. Your face looks a bit more moisturized compared to your other pics! and i like the eye make up!

Catherine said...

Ooh! That lipstick looks SO much better on you than it does on me! LOL. I am so jealous of your perfect lips, Jess - I knew it would look amazing on you! The formula unfortunately sinks into my liplines rather badly, but you don't have any! =P

The foundation looks so pretty on you too! I really wanted to try it, but the only sunscreen in it is chemical sunscreens... sad. I looked up the ingredients and it doesn't sound like it should flash white from SPF since there are no physical filters in it... but I have heard from a few different sources that this entire line is a little pinker than the rest, so maybe that's the reason? I think the finish looks amazing on you still though! And honestly, if you hadn't pointed out how it looks slightly light in the photos, I wouldn't have noticed. =P

I do my eyes like you too! Every day! I think Fuz is just lucky with her big, unpuffy eyes, so jealous lol.

tania said...

love the look! that lip colour looks really pretty on you! i think i might have to try it myself!

can you do a review on the MAC #130, how does it compare to the 187?

' * : . b | u 3 . : * ' said...

The foundation looks great on you! How would you compare the feel and coverage to Lunasol Water Cream foundation?

ALso what do you think of the 130 brush? Wondering if I need it :) Though its probably sold out by now...

CamRenRai16(SHOBE) said...

Liana said...

Oshiya said...

I have times when I don't feel like doing any experiment with makeup, too. My staple for those days is a mascara. Lots of it.

Shop N' Chomp said...

Another beautiful look, Jess! Aw, so now we know the secret to natural looking makeup. =)

i think the length is lovely but it will be itchy for the neck. lol

LS said...

oh wow Jess it looks really good on you. i dont own a lot of mac stugg but looking forward to your review~

Imalu said...

The revlon lipstick looks beautiful on you. However when I check out other sites to see the colour 'carnation', it always appears a fuschia almost glaring pink. On you it appears soft and pretty. Did you apply very little/have some other lip product on?

Thanks.
