Review || New MAC Products #3

Hello everyone!
First of all I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the new year as much as I am! So today's post involves a small MAC haul. For my birthday I received quite a few vouchers, and so thought I'd get some products from MAC that I've wanted for quite a long time! 

Boxed MAC products.

So the first thing I picked up is the Pro Palette Large/Single and the Pro Palette Eye Shadow x15 insert. I wanted to invest in a palette as it's cheaper to buy the eye shadow inserts instead of single ones in the black containers. I simply de-potted my current shades (using a few YouTube tutorials) and I can't wait to make my own custom eye shadow palette!

Next I wanted to pick up a highlighter so I went for the pretty well-known Mineralize Skinfinish in the shade Soft and Gentle. This is quite a raved about product so I won't ramble on. It is a warm gold toned highlight powder. It is quite pigmented so use it with a light hand if you don't want anything major, but I love just brushing it all over the high points of my face, especially on nights out!

Next was a very exciting product for me as I've never bought a 'high-end' concealer, but always had troubles with creasing and my under-eye concealer simply rubbing away. This led me to buy the Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20. So far I love this product as it has the perfect balance between coverage and long-lasting power. I went for a shade similar to my foundation shade as I don't tend to have under-eye highlights on a daily basis, but I just love this concealer and will probably find it hard to revert to drug store ones!

Next is the Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre. This is another well-loved product that I just needed to have! It is a beige-nude cream eye product that can be used as a base/primer or on its own as an eye shadow. I went for a simple nude shade as I like to wear light/nude colours on a daily basis, and using this as a base makes your eye shadow last all day.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post! Let me know if you have tried any of these products too, or would suggest anything for me to try out!
