MAC Pro Sculpting Cream

I'm not going to lie, the name of this product sucked me in completely. Sculpting Cream? For my face? You're telling me this cream will 'sculpt' my face?
Of course I'm going to buy it...

Designed to accentuate and contour features, this little pan is £17.50 a pop, and I bought mine with birthday money. We all know that birthday money doesn't count as actual money, right?

This cream to powder formula can be used to define cheek bones, brow bones and contour the face using either fingertips or an angled contouring/blusher brush.

There are six different shades to choose from depending on your natural skintone and how dramatic you'd like the 'sculpting' effect to be. 
I was recommended Naturally Defined, which is the second lightest shade.

The formula itself reminds me of a cream to powder foundation that's slightly too dark and I suppose that's essentially exactly what it is, but gimmicky products can be fun!
The fact that it applies as a cream means it's really quite easy to use, especially over a liquid foundation and the powder finish means it feels practically weightless.

Overall, I think this is quite a nice product, though my contouring abilities are below par to say the least!

Have you tried MAC Pro Sculpting Cream?

Lipstick I Love: MAC Jubilee

My collection of muted and barely-there lip shades seems to be growing lately and my latest addition is this sheerly pretty offering from MAC.

A pretty beige nude shade, Jubilee is part of the lustre family so it applies smoothly and easily with a creamy gloss like finish.

I love the formula of the lustre lipsticks because they are so easily applied and the soft texture feels hydrating and lovely with just the right amount of stickiness, though the product does sit quite heavy on the lips, if that makes sense.

Once again, this look is the complete opposite of what I usually go for but sometimes it's nice to skip the liquid eyeliner and trade my bold red lips for a sensible nude shade.

You can pick up Jubilee at MAC for £14

Thank you for reading!
