MAC - Pink Cult and Kinda Sexy

When the Tres Cheek came out, it really got me excited about MAC again. By the time I made up my mind that I was going to get something from the collection, it was already sold out at my local store. I cut my losses and moved onto the other limited edition collection that was on display - reel sexy. The one thing that caught my eye was a blush called pink cult
The makeup artist told me that people tended to be turned off by this color in the pan because it had a gray tint to it, but I happen to love colors like this. I was looking for a light, taupe-y pink and this fit the bill exactly. When applied to the cheek it doesn't come out exactly how it looks in the pan or swatched. It is a very natural pink flush and is hard to overdo. If it is still available at your MAC, check it out, because, it really is an unusual and unique color. 

Whilst in the store, I decided to try on a lipstick that I have always had my eye on - kinda sexy
 I love everything about this lipstick - the name, the color, and the matte formula. I'm beginning to think that matte lipsticks are really my thing, with a bit of lipbalm they make the perfect understated lip. When I put this lipstick on, it transforms my face. It gives me full, fleshy, kissable lips that actually makes me feel, kinda sexy. 
The shade is hard to describe - it is a coral-y, rosey, nude. It is a "my lips but hotter" shade and it is the one darker color in my collection that I feel I could wear everyday. It has quickly jumped onto the list of my favorite lipsticks. 

I hope you check these out at MAC because I love them both!
