Mac Haul for a Mac Newbie

I have to admit that I’m fairly new to Mac cosmetics – I know, I know. Crazy, right? I went shopping a few weekends ago specifically to pick up some new items. I only own one Mac lipstick (Plumful!), the 217 blending brush, some of their holiday pigments, and their Fix+ spray.

I really wanted to introduce myself to their eyeshadows. So I swatched quite a few and then settled on the four below! I have plans to pick out more soon as I’m really happy with them so far.

I also decided that I wanted to try one of their paint pots in Soft Ochre since it matches my skin tone perfectly and I think it’ll work great as an eyeshadow base (and a week into using it and so far, so good!)

I did buy some Mac pigments in their holiday sets back in November, the pinky, rose tones; and I was really happy with those so I decided to buy Mac’s Blue/Brown pigment which I had seen swatches of online and I thought they were stunning.

All in all I’m really happy with my purchases and you better believe I’ll be back for some more Mac.

What are some of your all-time favorite Mac shadows? I’d love some more suggestions on what to pick up next!
