A Monday MAC face of the Day With a few of My current Obsessions: Costa Riche Liner, Cantaloupe blush and Heroine Lipstick
It’s MAC Heroine Lipstick to the rescue!!
Do you ever feel like putting every piece of makeup that you’re currently obsessed with (in other words, everything and the kitchen sink) on your face at the same time?
Yeah…that’s kind of what happened to me here, LOL!
I’ve got a major crush on MAC Costa Riche (please don’t let it be discontinued, please don’t let it be discontinued, please don’t let it be discontinued…), so that’s what I based my makeup on today. I’m wearing it here on my lower lash and water lines.
Cheeks are MAC Cantaloupe Blush, MAC give Me sun Mineralize Skinfinish (under the cheek bone) and MAC Shaping Powder in Accentuate (to highlight); I’m also wearing the MAC Prep + Prime Highlighters in bright forecast (under-eye area, with MAC pro Longwear Concealer on top) and Radiant rose (down the bridge of my nose and on my upper cheekbones)
With Costa Riche being a warm-toned brown, I also busted out a few of my favorite MAC browns in the same vein, namely Bamboo, Saddle and Swiss Chocolate, which I think are terrific mattes to wear in the crease if you like warm reddish and orangey browns (cool-toned gals, check out MAC Wedge and Omega; also very pretty).
So…you might remember Swiss chocolate from last week’s MAC anxiety shopper’s diary. I’m actually wearing a bunch of stuff from that same vid, like the two Prep + Prime Highlighters, Shaping Powders and MAC Cantaloupe Blush, too.
¿Cats y maquillaje sudadera ??
See, told ya! everything and the kitchen sink.
I’m starting to believe that every gal (and blush-loving boy) needs Cantaloupe in their life. It’s like the best balance of peach and coral, and it always seems to brighten my look, without competing with whatever else I may be wearing.
Definitely worth a swatch next time you check out a MAC pro Store. I think it’ll be a charming spring/summer shade.
Last, but not least, those lips! The star attraction: MAC Heroine Lipstick, a powerfully opaque purple matte from a previous collection, but recently added to the MAC permanent line. It’s available now on counters and at maccosmetics.com.

MAC Ricepaper layered underneath MAC Vanilla on my brow bone, MAC Bamboo and MAC Saddle in the crease, MAC Swiss chocolate on the lids, and MAC Ricepaper in the inner corner
Now, if you feel like this level of purple pigment is a little OTT for you, you could always swap it out for a neutral lip instead, like this one here…
Same look with different lips: too faced Taffy La Creme Lipstick and best Lips liner in best Spice; MAC Smolder Eye Kohl topped with MAC Carbon on the upper lash lines, MAC Costa Riche on the water lines and lower lash line, and Chanel Inimitable Mascara in 10 on the upper and lower lashes
Anyone else out there wearing warm-toned browns today? Or something bolder? I wonder if we were on the same wavelength… Whatever you’re rockin’, let me know in the comments.
Su amigable adicto a la apelación del vecindario,
PD hope you’re having a terrific Monday.
