New stuff from MAC: Mascaras, lipsticks and more...

MAC August new in review
In today's article I am planning on introducing you to the newest MAC additions to my makeup collection. And, honestly, I am very happy that today's review will cover a relatively big range of products as I will be talking about different mascaras, lipsticks and a newbie - Softenig lotion spray. You might already know how much love I have for MAC as a brand and their products based on my previous reviews (here, here and here) and without any doubts this brand has a solid place in my daily makeup routine. For example, I simply cannot imagine my day without MAC FIX+. Anyways, enough with the chit-chat & I'll dive into the review.

LV
Šodienas rakstā iepazīstināšu ar MAC jaunumiem manā kosmētikas maciņā. Un man patiešām liels prieks, ka šodien varu pastāstīt par daudziem un dažādiem MAC produktiem - sākot no skropstu tušām, lūpu krāsām līdz pat ieintriģējošam izsmidzināmam sejas losjonam. Kā jau to iespējams var noprast pēc maniem iepriekšējajiem MAC rakstiem, esmu ļoti, ļoti iemīļojusi šo zīmolu un neapšaubāmi tā produkti ir kļuvuši par manu ikdienas kosmētikas rutīnas sastāvdaļu. Goda vārds, savu dienu, piemēram, bez MAC Fix + nu jau vairs nekādīgi nespēju iedomāties. Bet nu pietiks runāt par un ap, ļaušu produktiem pašiem par sevi pastāstīt.
MAC Lightful Softening Lotion Spray review
This is the first time when I am using a product like this and I was surely very intrigued by it. You have to use this lotion before you apply your makeup in order to moisturize, smooth out, brighten and soften your face. I have been using this lotion for about two weeks now and it undeniably has become a part of my daily skincare/makeup routine. I really love how moisturizing it feels and and that it has the softest, lightest texture which absorbs in a really short amount of time. Besides the positive qualities it obtains, it also has the most gorgeous packaging. The holographic lines shine in all possible colours of a rainbow - it is so beautiful! I also have to mention the scent as it's breathtaking. Honestly, I might use this product only for the scent - it's that good!

Šī ir pirmā reize, kad saskaros ar šāda tipa produktu, jeb izsmidzināmo losjonu. Šo losjonu ir jālieto pirms kosmētikas uzklāšanas, lai mitrinātu, izlīdzinātu, izgaismotu un mīkstinātu sejas ādu. Esmu to lietojusi aptuveni divas nedēļas un neapšaubāmi tas ir kļuvis par manu ik rīta sastāvdaļu, jo tas lieliski mitrina manu ādu un man ļoti, ļoti patīk tas, ka tam ir ļoti viegla un mīksta tekstūra, kas uzsūcas ādā ļoti neilgā laika sprīdī. Neskaitot tā lieliskās īpašības man noteikti ir jāuzteic skaistais losjona iepakojums, jo hologrāfiskās līnijas zaigo visdažādākajās varavīksnes nokrāsās, kā arī losjona izcilā smarža. Nopietni, es to varētu lietot tikai un vienīgi burvīgās smaržas dēļ. 
MAC mascara review False Lashes
First of all, how cool is the design of the mascara's bottle? I can't really figure out which figure from chess it reminds me of. Any ideas? :) I really like the brush of the mascara as I found it really handy, because it was so easy to apply mascara with it - no smearing or smudging! The mascara has a very light texture and I would even say that it reminds me of mousse, therefore, my lashes didn't get heavy and were nicely separated. 

Pirmkārt, cik gan stilīgs ir dizains šai skropstu tušai? Vēl joprojām īsti nevaru saprast, kuru šaha figūru man tā atgādina. Man ļoti parocīga likās tušas birstīte, jo ar to bija viegli darboties un tā lieliski atdalīja manas skropstas, nenosmērējot pusi no mana plakstiņa :) Tušai ir viegla tekstūra, ko, manuprāt, varētu pat noraksturot kā saputotu (mousse), līdz ar to skropstas nepaliek smagas un arī tik viegli nesaķeras kopā.
MAC mascara review Instacurl Lash
How cool and unique is the design of this mascara? I certainly had a wow! moment when I first saw it! In MAC homepage it is said that with the help of this mascara you'll be able to say bye to your straight lashes and say hello to your new curled up lashes. The most awesome thing about this mascara? You can twist the cap and bend the brush almost to 90 degrees. How cool is that?
MAC mascara review
Cik gan interesants un unikāls dizains ir šai skropstu tušai? Man tiešām bija wow! moments to pirmo reizi ieraugot! MAC mājas lapā ir rakstīts, ka ar šīs skroptsu tušas palīdzību varēsi atvadīties no taisnām skropstām, jo šī tuša ar tām paspēlēsies un tās skaisti atlieks. Pats foršākais šajā skropstu tušā? Tas, ka Tu pats ar to vari spēlēties un griežot tušas korķīti iegūt dažāda liekuma birstīti. 
MAC mascara review Hauet & Naughty
Yet another interesting mascara, and the unique fact about this one is that you can use it in two ways. If you open the first cap you'll see a thin brush with bristles more apart from each other. I use this brush to achieve natural looking lashes that are beautifully separated. If you open the second cap, you'll see a thicker brush with bristles close to each other. I use this brush to achieve a more dramatic and fuller look. MAC is surely surprising me with their cool innovations!

Vēl viena interesanta skropstu tuša, kuru ir iespējams lietot divos veidos: attaisot pirmo korķīti iegūsi plānāku birstīti ar retākiem sariņiem. Šādā veidā to lietoju tad, ja vēlos dabiska izskata skropstas, kas ir skaisti atdalītas viena no otras. Savukārt, attaisot otro korķīti iegūsi biezāku birstīti ar biežāk izvietotiem sariņiem. Šādā veidā tušu lietoju tad, ja vēlos dramatiskāku un pilnāku efektu. MAC tiešām mani pārsteidz ar inovācijām!
MAC Matte lipstick review
MAC Matte lipstick review
An iconic lipstick that, I believe, doesn't really need an introduction or a review. MAC Matte lipstick was on my wishlist for so long, therefore, I am very happy about the fact that the first shade I have from the matte series is the beautiful hot pink shade called Silly. The gloomy days of August were certainly a whole lot brighter and more colorful with this lipstick. :)

Ikoniska lūpu krāsa, kas, manuprāt, lielu iepazīstināšanu un aprakstu neprasa. Jau sen kāroju savā īpašumā iegūt kādu no MAC matētajām lūpu krāsām un man ir prieks, ka mans pirmais tonis ir košais spilgti rozā tonis Silly. Augusta pelēcīgi lietainajās dienās, tas noteikti mani iepriecināja un padarīja manu dienu kaut nedaudz krāsaināku. :)
MAC Huggable Lipclolour review
MAC lipstick swatches
A gel-like lipstick with rich, glossy shine and a feather-light finish. The texture of this lipstick is certainly very light and creamy and it practically melts on my lips when I apply it. It doesn't dry up during the day and it felt like my lips were constantly moisturized. The only minus I can mention is the fact that it did feel a bit sticky. Like when I talked it felt like my bottom and upper lip kind of were sticking together.

Gēla tekstūrai līdzīga lūpu krāsa, kas lūpām piešķir maigu spīdumu. Tekstūra ir ļoti viegla un krēmīga, uz lūpām tā klājas gluži kā izkūstot. Dienas garumā lūpu krāsa neizžūst un rada sajūtu, ka lūpas tiek nepārtraukti mitrinātas. Vienīgais mīnus ko varētu minēt ir tas, ka lūpas tomēr ir nedaudz lipīgas, jeb runājot rodas sajūta, ka tās pie kontakta nedaudz salīp kopā.

  1. Oh wooow the design of the mascaras is beautiful! I have never used a mascara from Mac because I know that there are cheaper (but also good) versions in a drug store... But perhaps I have to try them when I have enough money :) haha

    1. The design defnitely blew me away as I had not really seen such a cool packaging for mascaras! And I agree that there are many drugstore mascaras that are great (I am the hugest fan of Maybelline mascaras), but if you have enough money and want to experiment, I couldn't recommend MAC more!

  2. I also had the Haute & Naughty mascara but in my opinion, it became empty way too soon.
    Their lipstick is great :) I have a pink one myself.
