Today I’m reviewing my current favorite lipstick – MAC’sAll Fired Up which is a Retro Matte formula. I picked this up few weeks back (see my Back to MAC picks here) and have been wearing it quite often lately!
Ever since I got into makeup 5 years back, I’ve been saving up my used/broken/expired MAC products for the Back to MAC program. This program allows you to return 6 old MAC products and get a free lipstick in exchange! I had quite a collection of old MAC products that I was no longer using and when I returned to India this month (in Japan, they only accept products purchased in Japan), I headed off to MAC to get my lipsticks.
Here’s what I picked up – Brick-o-la (a flattering mix of pink, brown and red – repurchase!), Craving (beautiful berry pink), Fast Play (nude plum/mauve) and All Fired Up (vivid magenta). All these shades are really flattering on Indian complexions in my opinion. I really wanted Mocha but it was not in stock sadly!

MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation (NC30) Review
They say finding a perfect foundation is like finding that perfect pair of jeans! You never want to part with it. That’s what happened when I discovered this foundation. I have been a cult user of MAC Mineralize Satin Finish SPF15 foundation. But when I went to repurchase it, I was told it has been discontinued and this is the replacement for it. I have been in love ever since! MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 foundation comes in a frosted glass bottle with a built-in pump. I like the new and different shape of the bottle and I personally prefer glass containers over plastic. However,you have to be careful with it while travelling. The pump is ever so helpful in dispensing little amount and keeping it all very hygienic. Consistency is gel-like and a bit runny. Its comparable to the MAC Face and Body foundation. It spreads easily and blends like a dream. I have used fingers, flat brush, real techniques face expert brush as well as sponge to apply this and i find the brushes to be the best option.
As the season’s change, it is important for every girl to revamp her makeup collection and adding new and seasonal lip colors to it is the perfect way to do so. Transitioning from the seasonal dark, rich, and plum winter shades, summer is all about fresh, bright, and exotic colors. After searching up and down the makeup aisles of several different stores I found myself the two perfect summer shades. One being VEGAS VOLT by MAC and the other, STAY CORAL by Estee Lauder.
