MAC Cosmetics Mini Haul

What's in your MACCosmetics Bag?

MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks & Lip Pencil
I went by MAC cosmetics in search of MAC lipstick in the colour Relentlessy Red and a brow set unfortunately they were all sold out. Anyhow the sales clerk pointed out three other shades that are a little similar to Relentlessy Red those of the three are: All Fired Up, La Vie En Route and Dama Glamorous which is a bit brighter in colour than the others. I fell in love with all three and I found it difficult to select one.

From L-R Flat Out Fabulous, All Fired Up, La Vie En Route & Dama Glamorous

After thoroughly going through all the shades they had available on the lipstick rack I decided to go with Flat Out Fabulous, All Fired Up and a Lip Pencil namely Currant.

Well I was inspired by the sales clerk to purchase the Lip Pencil in Currant, she was wearing it with Candy Yum Yum, it was so pretty on her lips. I had already own Candy Yum Yum, so I didn't have to purchase it.

Surface.Pro by Beauty Blender

Surface.Pro by Beauty Blender

The Surface.Pro
The Surface.Pro by Beauty Blender is a super sleek and modern palette use to download, mix, match and customize makeup. The Surface.Pro Palette is a very thick acrylic disc that has a five numbered film and storage wells which is used to retain custom makeup mixes.

Instead of using the back of your hand you can simply use the Surface.Pro to find your shade just by holding up the Surface.Pro to your face and match the appropriate color and retain the color in one of the five wells. Makeup mixes often stains the hand and it is difficult to take color of your hands for a later use but with surface.pro you can take it off and retain it in one of the five wells.

Surface.Pro Palette
You can easily apply from the palette to your face using any beauty tool of your choice. 

The Spatula
The spatula is a super soft silicon stick that is flexible, it will not scratch the palette and it makes mixing makeup way much easier. After the creation of custom mixes of makeup simply take the spatula and collect the custom mix from the palette and deposit it into the surface wells to use at a later date. 

The Numbered Film
The numbered film that is included should be used to cover the wells, so that you can remember your custom mixture by writing on the number what product you used to create that custom makeup.

What can I mix using Surface.Pro?
With the Surface.Pro you can mix blushes, lipsticks, foundations, concealers and even lip glosses to get that desired shade. You can simple place your mixture in the wells and use it straight from the palette, the snap lid will also allows you to keep the custom mixes safe, secure and fresh for using at another time.

Maintenance
The Surface.Pro is easy to maintain, it can be used with the blender cleanser or alcohol and tissue.




Surface.Pro Beauty Hacks
1. To create a custom cream blush, use the surface.pro and mix the lipstick color of your choice with a drop of liquid foundation.

2. To get that shade of lipstick but no idea where to find that specific color. Mix a shade or two of similar to the color that you are admiring using a lipstick and loose eye shadow to get that perfect combination. For eg. To make a black lipstick you can use a purple lipstick and mix it together with a black eye shadow.

3. For a one step application mix primer and foundation together using your Surface.Pro.

4. Use Vaseline and loose pigments to create a custom lip tint.

5. Mix lip gloss with a drop of peppermint for a fuller plumping lip pout.


The Surface.Pro is available to purchase at Sephora, BeautyBlender website, Nordstorm, DermstoreeBay and several other places. I purchased mine on eBay for $35....
