Review: MAC Fix+ Prep & Prime-Lavender

It has been a cold winter in Toronto.  I’ve grown accustomed to the fact that winter continues on into what I would typically call ‘spring’ -March.  If you have read any of my skincare or makeup posts, you will know that I have oily skin; I’m moving into the ‘mature’ skin category (as defined by the makeup community).  During the work week, I have a 20 minute walk from the train station to my office.  That’s fine on a mild day, but during these frigid times-it’s a bit daunting.  I bundle up and cover my face as much as I can, but some of my face is still exposed to the elements.  I find my skin feeling quite parched these days.  I wear a ‘full face’ of makeup to work and am not a fan of having to lug all the makeup in for touch-ups (although matte translucent powder and blotting papers are ALWAYS in my bag).  What’s really working for me these days is MAC Fix+ Prep & Prime Lavender.

My favorites from….. MAC

I couldn’t do this series without mentioning MAC.  I credit MAC with getting me interested in cosmetics.  Please note….the below photos do NOT encompass my entire collection but what I’m showing you truly are my favorites! I also have some items from MAC that are unopened and while I know they could be potential favorites, I decided against including them in this post.

Makeup Basket Monday (and last week debrief)!

I am really starting to love these…..it should be interesting this go around. I am going to attempt to use my longwear makeup (Perfection Lumiere from Chanel). I have a very ‘varied’ basket this week-BB creams, high end foundation, asian products. Good times!
