Just A Couple of Things....

So I made it to the Bull Ring in Birmingham yesterday to pick up a mineralize skinfinish natural and the select cover-up concealer. I decided in the medium dark shade in the powder as I already had medium plus. I really like the colour but definately gets darker throughout the day... Does anyone know if the shade in medium is darker or lighter than the medium plus? When i emailed an artist they said medium was darker than the medium plus, which isnt logical really.

I couldnt really decide on the concealer. The nc30 in this concealer looked more muddy/brown as opposed to the nc30 in the studio finish concealer which looks more golden...anyone agree? I felt the nc23 the next lightest shade in the select cover was maybe a tad too light. She put them both on me and to be honest the light in selfridges is rubbish and they both looked very similar on the skin. However on my hand in daylight, nc30 too dark and nc23 too light!! Help!!

Just wondering if anyone got the mac graphic garden brush sets, i really want the makeup bag they came in and wondered if anyone has it and doesnt want it and would be prepared to sell it to me??

Finally just a few youtube ladies you should def check out, "lette76" and "lexxielove", there videos are fab! x

MAC MSF Natural...

So im planning to get another msf natural, im really debating between the medium dark and the medium deep. I want to use it all over after ive done my foundation. How sheer are these? Do you girls use them all over your face or just around the cheek area?? I have got the medium plus one and was wondering how that colour compares with the medium dark and then the medium deep? Your thoughts would be a great help? x

MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer

Hi girlies,

Long time no post! Im currently on the hunt for a good concealer. Back in the day I use to use the Stila one which came in a little tube. Unfortunately Stila no longer sell their products in the UK and I cant be faffed with trying to find somewhere online that sells it. Anyway ive tried quire a few concealers since, inc Boing by Benefit, Studio Finish by Mac, and a couple of others, the names of which fail me at the moment! None of these are up to scratch, all either too light, too dark, to pinky or too drying! I was chatting with "MAC!!..luz**" and she suggested I try the Select Cover-Up. I would say im about an nc25, the nc30 is the perfect colour tone wise, it having golden/yellow undertones however its just a tad bit too dark. Im very pale but pretty much always fake tan. Anyways, guess what...they dont do the select cover in nc25, the next one down is nc23 and if you look on the online swatch it looks pinky. I appreciate the swatches are never accurate but im still a little wary as its not cheap concealer. If anyone has a swatch of the nc23 that would be great! If not perhaps someone could advise what the colour nc23 actually looks like.

Thanks xx
