MAC Haul & First Impression ♡ ft. Lip Scrubtious, Beaming Blush, Petal Power, Viva Glam II Lipstick & Pink Rebel Lustre Drops

MAC Haul 2017

Today I am sharing with you Part B of the MAC Haul that I have purchased recently and it features the newly released Lip Scrubtious and a few products that has been sitting on my wish list.

I have already shared with you Part A of this haul which featured some new-to-me skincare products from MAC, click here for the post if you have not read it yet.

I am starting this haul with my most wanted product from MAC and it has literally been sitting in my favourites for a year! It is the MAC Petal Power Mineralize Blush and it was definitely love at first site from the first time I saw the swatches online. I have been wanting to try it SO BADLY, but looking into my makeup collection, I already own a lot of blushes that are quite similar and most of them are untouched.

To be honest I don't think I need any of these products being mention in the haul because I already own a bunch of blushes, highlighters, lipsticks etc... in similar colours, but there's just this voice in my head saying I NEED THESE BECAUSE IT'S MAC! Totally not an excuse to buy makeup that I don't need, but I cannot deny the fact that I love MAC and I want to try as many new products from the brand as I can.

MAC Petal Power Mineralize Blush

Anyway, MAC Petal Power Mineralize Blush is described as a "coral pink with gold shimmer", it is a blush that builds lightly, layer after layer, without heavy coverage. I find that Petal Power has a semi-opaque coverage that is buildable, but because it has a lot of shimmer, when I layer the blush on my cheek, it just looks like a metallic gold.

MAC Beaming Blush Extra Dimension Skinfinish is described as a "pink that breaks gold", it is a liquid-powder highlighter that gives a luminous, well-defined finish. The pink / gold effect was very hard to pick up on camera, but Beaming Blush is the most beautiful, BEAUTIFUL blush I have ever come across from MAC.

I have been using Beaming Blush with a fan brush and I find that it doesn't matter what kind of brushes I use, it delivers the same subtle luminous effect, but when I use my fingers to apply, it will give me that very heavy glow.

MAC Pink Rebel Lustre Drops

MAC Pink Rebel Lustre Drops is described as a "blue pink with gold pearl" and it is a liquid highlighter that can be used on its own or mix with moisturiser and foundation. I definitely cannot see any blue pink, not when looking in the bottle and not when I squeeze out the product. The colour is more of a champagne with a luminous look when blend out on skin.

I haven't tried mixing the Lustre Drops with foundation, but I have been using it on its own and I find the colour to be quite sheer and the glow effect is quite subtle. The bottle comes with one of those tiny squeezer heads and I like that the amount you need to dispense can be easily controlled.

MAC Candied Nectar Lip Scrubtious

MAC Candied Nectar Lip Scrubtious is a newly introduced product this year and it comes in a total of five flavours: Candied Nectar, Fruit of Passion, Summery Berry, Sweet Brown Sugar, Sweet Vanilla. These are described as a sugar-based exfoliator that gently buffs away dry and flaky skin.

There is this thick layer of balmy / oil when I opened the lip scrub and I am actually quite confused because I am not sure if you are suppose to remove this layer or leave it?! Majority of the Lip Scrubtious photos that I have seen online don't have this balmy layer and when I use the lip scrub, it gets very oily and greasy, so I am totally confused!

Apart from that, I love the Lip Scrubtious! It scrub away the dry skin instantly and made my lips feel smooth and soft, also it smells delicious!

MAC Viva Glam II Lipstick

Lastly, it is about time I buy one of these Viva Glam (non celebrity collaboration) Lipsticks. This is MAC Viva Glam II and it is described as a "muted pink-beige with shimmer" in a Satin finish. Just in-case you are unaware, every cent of the selling price of the Viva Glam is donated to the MAC AIDS Fund.

MAC Viva Glam II looks like a greyish pink on me, it has a smooth texture that glides on beautifully, but the colour made my teeth looks yellow >.< ~ I am having mix feelings about this...

DID I MENTION THAT there was a 25% off discount for MAC Select members when I placed this order, so I got the Petal Power Mineralize Blush, the Beaming Blush Extra Dimension Skinfinish and the Candied Nectar Lip Scrubtious all at a very special price. Plus, the Pink Rebel Lustre Drops was on sale and overall I got such a great bargain! 

ALSO, have you noticed that I am currently having a pink / gold obsession?! Almost all the highlighters and blushes that I have recently purchased are in similar shades and I am excited to test them and play with them more, so I can hopefully review the individual products soon! As I feel like I have been doing too much hauls lately and I am definitely missing the product reviews.
