MAC Cham Pale.
This week I finally caved in and bought my very first MAC make up items! I've been watching the collections come and go over the past year and although I thought they were all pretty, none of them appealed to me enough to purchase anything, that is of course until Cham Pale came a long. I could quite easily have bought pretty much the entire collection but I decided to be restrained and pick out the two products I wanted the most and I'm not disappointed in either of them.
Paint pots have intrigued me for a while because I have a lot of difficulty getting my eye make up to stay put throughout the day and I liked the idea of the paint pots going on creamy and then drying so they (hopefully) won't budge. As soon as I saw Vintage Selection I knew that I had to have it. I'm not big into eye make up as you all know, but I do love the brightening effect that neutral colours can give and this colour would be the perfect base for so many eyeshadows.
It's described by MAC as a frosted dirty peach and I'd say that's a pretty accurate description. I think a few bloggers have said how similar it is to Urban Decay's Sin eyeshadow and they're so right, the combination of the two is gorgeous and so easy to do! I love everything about this, maybe it's the 'first MAC item excitement' but I think it's a beautiful product from the colour to the formula to the packaging!
The second product I knew I wanted as soon as I saw it was one of the special reserve highlight powders. Initially the £20.50 price tag put me off but in the end I couldn't resist, I mean look how pretty that is! I went for the shade Rose Ole which is a light pink with gold shimmer and I love it. As my skin gets drier I find myself lusting over that dewy luminous look more & more and this product is going to be perfect for that.
I think I'm starting to see why so many people love MAC products and although I'm determined not to be tempted by all of the future collections, I have a feeling more products will find their way into my collection this year.
Did you get anything from Cham Pale? What was your very first MAC make up item?
