Ask and you shall receive! Recently, I posted about my quest for the perfect tan lippie. What happened? I published that post in the morning. That afternoon I got a big box from Elke over at The Beauty Newsletter, who also happens to be the the founder of The Beauty Blog Network. In addition to being an amazing professional makeup artist, Elke is a total sweetheart (I know, I have been lucky enough to meet this girl!). Anyways, she shared her shipment of PR Samples of the MAC Holiday Collection with me! And what was in that box??? My perfect nude lippie!
One of the items that Elke sent me was MAC's Finery 3 Tan Lips Set. This is a great deal, for $32 you get 2 lipsticks, a Lip Gloss and a little bag! Perfect! I think that these sets make great gifts because you just need to pick a general color family (e.g.- Pink, Plum, Coral or Tan), and included are the 3 items which are sure to work for nearly any one!
The lipsticks included in this set are High Tea and Haughty. Haughty is a light-medium neutral tan, with very slight frost. My perfect nude lippie is High Tea, a much lighter tan with slight frost. Both lipsticks are very easy to apply, feel hydrating and are long lasting. MAC's lipstick has a very faint flavor that kinda sweet for me, almost vanilla. Also included in this set is Honourable Lip Gloss, which is a light tan/pink with shimmer and looks amazing over both lipsticks!
