So today I have a little product review for you all! I am obviously a Nordstrom card holder, so I went on to their website and shopped around a little at their anniversary sale that for a couple days, only card-members have access to. Honestly, the sale wasn't that great. The prices weren't good and the stuff was very so-so. I seriously only found three things that I liked. I picked up a really cute Topshop midi skirt, and a MAC boxset, which I'm talking about today. I also LOVED this Loeffler Randall clutch but it was $200 on sale, and that was just a little out of my price range.
Anyways, I just got this Look In A Box in the mail, and it's amazing! It was only $35 for a full sized lipstick, lipgloss, eyeliner, and three eye shadows! I got the "All About Coral" palette, and it really is beautiful. Perfect for summer. I see myself constantly buying coral shaded lipsticks and lip colors. I don't know what it is, but I love coral lips. I think they're so summery, and just give an instant pop to any face look....
First off, the packaging is great. The four products come in a cute petite box with all products displayed on the front panel of the box. You open up the box, and the products are placed in uniquely shaped cut-outs that fit the product perfectly, which I thought was a really nice touch.
The lipstick and gloss obviously match perfectly when applied onto the lips. I doubt I need to explain the quality of MAC lipsticks and glosses, since I bet most of you already know. The lipstick is lustre, and the gloss is shimmery.
I love the eyeliner. It's the color "brownborder" and it looks GREAT when applied with the shadows. The eye look is supposed to be smokey and understated, since the lip color is so bold. The shadows are also lovely. They swatched beautifully and the colors are so bold and pigmented. I can't wait for another outfit post, so I can show you guys how I create the eye look with the shadows and liner. The mini-palette is the "Collective Chic" palette. I tried looking for the individual names for the shadows, but to no avail. I highly recommend you guys pick up a "Look In The Box" from the Nordstrom sale! They're so affordable, and you get some great products that will when applied together will create a flawless look! Thanks MAC for this ingenious idea!
