Beauty Post: MAC Lipstick

I fluctuate between stalking beauty blogs and watching youtube tutorials, to not giving a lick about makeup! Sometimes I have so many items in my Sephora cart that I'm convinced I will never have enough money to ever purchase and other times I'd be just as content to buy makeup from Target for the rest of my days. Weird, maybe? Who knows!

But anyhow, I did just recently buy my first tube of MAC lipstick after seeing it on numerous beauty blogs. I love its super pink and girly shade and think it's pretty great. Now I did find a Rimmel color at Walgreens for less than 1/2 the price that I think I like just as much--but that is saved for another post.

My MAC shade of choice is called "Snob"--not at all representative of my personality I promise!


Of course ya'll may remember my difficulty with self portraits, right? Well I really tried this time and still managed to look goofy and blurry. I'll get better someday. Please wait for me! : )




Do you have a favorite lipstick and brand? Do share, please.

xoxo

What mascara do you use? Your lashes look fantastic. As far as lipstick is concerned, I keep returning to L'oreal Glam Shine in Hold on Rose (much pinker than the website would have you believe). I need a bit more gloss than most lipsticks seem to offer and Glam Shine lasts at least half a day which is excellent for a gloss. While on the subject of makeup, I totally need to share how amazing Youngblood mineral makeup is. Hands down the best foundation I've ever used.

I've been looking for this exact pink. Must make a trip to MAC before we head to the airport today. My husband is going to love that! Thanks for posting.

I can't wear it. I always end up with it on my teeth or I forget to reapply. I stick to gloss or Burts Bees. I love your top!

I second the comment about your lashes - they are awesome! Hey - how do you stay so tanned?!

Leiah said...

I love my MAC "Spice It Up" lipstick. It's red without being that 50's movie star red....love it!

And you totally are rocking the eyelashes girl. MAC makes some killer mascara too - is that what you use?

Shelby said...

i third the comment about your lashes! and loving the color of your hair! what color is that?!

One Love said...

You are too cute! That color looks great on you! I actually love Mac, but I prefer their lip glosses instead. My all time fave is "Oh Baby."

emily said...

LOVE THAT ON YOU! What beauty blogs do you follow? I'm not sure if dirty blondes can do that color, but I'm for sure going to try.

Leslie G said...

That color looks so great on you! I haven't worn lipstick in YEARS- but I have become so obsessed with beauty blogs and products lately and have bought a slew of stuff because of it. =)
And FYI- your self portraits look really great- compared to some that I've seen on beauty blog outfit posts!

I love MAC Lipstick. My favorite colors are Syrup and Midimauve. It glides on so smooth and smells yummy. It is such a treat to get a new tube! Love Sephora Two Face Mascara too!! You have lovely lashes!!

Design Darling said...

I'm trying to find makeup that I love...haven't gotten there really yet. I have a Bobbie Brown color from seasons ago that I do love but I can't think of the name of it. I should wear it more often. I'm trying to get my glamour back this year effortlessly in my person and home before baby girl comes. I lost it over the last few years...long story.

BTW...I purchased the Ikea table. :-) My friend thought I was crazy to drive 30 miles but I save $100 bucks! LOL

Suzie said...

Joi, Joi! You are so freaking gorgeous!

I LOVE Bobbi Brown's gloss in beige! LOVE!

Sharstin said...

love your cute picts! and that color is fab--I am a MAC girl too~

Joi said...

@Catherine, @DesignDarling, @Leiah-I use Maybelline Colossal Volume in a yellow tube and an eyelash curler always! Hope that helps! : )

@Shelby-It's au natural! ; ) I actually want to dye it a very dark almost blackish-brown--eek!

@ Tami-Yay! It's so worth it, right? I drive over 30 miles to work one way so I would've went in a heartbeat, too! : )

Thanks to everyone for your sweet comments--they make my day!

Allison aka Half of VAMH said...

oooh pretty!

julie said...

I LOVE that on you! My favorite is Sweet Nectar by Mary Kay.

Catherine @ waking up with you said...

Oh damn, why does Colossal Volum work for everyone but me! By the end of the day I have black marks under my eyes when I wear it. Maybe I blink too much...

sanjeet said...

I stick to gloss or Burts Bees. I love your top!
