♥ a little update, my 1st MAC Mineralize blush & recent buys ♥

I have been mia for quite some time and I am really sorry. I started a new job and the training's been really demanding. I had to do homework every day and prepare for a humongous test. I passed the test, a 85%, so I am quite thrilled.
And to treat myself I went to MAC yesterday and got myself some goodies.

1st off, I have to say that I had to part from one of my most loved blushes. Last time I used it, it gave me a really bad rash, little spots all over my cheeks, and I decided I needed to part from it. I might have talked about this gorgeous blush's Urban Decay's Afterglow blush in Fetish. It's such a beautiful colour and goes so well with my complexion, in winter when I am fairly light and in summer when I have a golden olive tan. But what can we do, I guess after almost 4 years, it's time to say good bye.

First I decided to go for Breezy, which seems to be very similar to Fetish, just slighter darker. But then I checked out the mineralize blushes and "love things" caught my eye. I still thought, I should go for Breezy anyway to start my blush palette.

So I got Breezy, Tempting eye shadow and a Pro Palette for 4 pans. I walked out of MAC feeling happy, yet I kept thinking about "love thing". So I went back, swatched it again and ended up exchanging breezy for love thing. I will probably get Breezy at some point, but for now, I am super excited about love thing.

Oh, love!!!

I had to put all my MAC Pans (4 in total) into the cute quad - perfect neutral baby palette ♥
