I’m sporting one other pumpkin spice latte look right this moment! (More evaluations on the key make-up merchandise, all the new issues from MAC which can be out proper now, in only a sec.) But first, my newest Starbucks journey…
Like I mentioned yesterday, for years I believed the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte was restricted to the standard-issue #PSL, however I couldn’t have been extra incorrect. If you go searching, you will discover TONS of completely different variations of the PSL (even healthy-ish ones)! If you’re not into the tremendous candy OG latte (which, I admit, generally is a little a lot, even for my candy tooth generally), you’ve gotta do this different model from The Macrobarista, which I obtained earlier right this moment.
This more healthy model of the PSL is spicy and pumpkin-y like the O.G. model, nevertheless it’s much less sugary. I obtained mine with out the whipped cream, and it was nonetheless candy sufficient to fulfill my candy tooth. Comforting perfection in a coffee cup!
No joke, I may’ve downed at the very least three of them, however Tabs, the world (and I) are usually not correctly outfitted to deal with a hyper-caffeinated Okay-Dawg. So I simply caught to at least one, ha ha!
Oh, and should you have been questioning, that intense purple matte lippie on my lips didn’t budge one bit as I slammed this.
Which leads me to those ideas on ‘ze MAC I’m sporting in right this moment’s PSL-inspired look…
MAC Patrick Starr Boy About Town Kit ($42.50)
Nothing says “It’s PSL season” like an extremely matte purple liquid lippie, and MAC has one of the greatest liquid lipstick strains on the market with their Retro Mattes. They’re lengthy lasting and tremendous concentrated, with creamy coloration that received’t budge, irrespective of what number of occasions you kiss your tabby all through the day (this is my go-to shade from the line). The #pattypout Retro Matte purple in Patrick Starr’s latest LE MAC collab is all of these issues, and it has some deep, sudden burgundy tones — like crushed purple cherries — that seize your attention.
The quad… Not the best to mix. I swirled my mixing brush on my lids like a human Ninja Blender, and but the three mattes saved skipping. The glittery bronze is difficult, too, as a result of the items prefer to fly throughout the place.
I’m sporting MAC’s latest full-coverage, oil-free liquid concealer on this look as each a face basis and an under-eye concealer, and it’s REALLY good — so good that it simply might need transformed me again into an under-eye concealer woman once more… Maybe.
If you needed that hyper-perfected, even-toned pores and skin again in the day, your best choice in MAC was Pro-Longwear Concealer, and it’s nonetheless out there, nevertheless it isn’t the most person pleasant in the world. The pump is hard, you need to mix shortly as a result of it dries quick, and should you by chance apply an excessive amount of, you find yourself with cake face. Plus, it tends to oxidize, so you need to compensate by going a shade or two down… Sh*t is difficult, yo.
This new 24-HR one has the pigment depth and full protection of Pro-Longwear, nevertheless it’s a lot simpler to make use of on so many ranges. There’s no drama with mixing in any respect (I take advantage of fingers or an artificial mixing brush dampened with a bit of MAC Fix+), and it kinda fills out pores, too, so your pores and skin seems to be actually clean.
Bottom line: This full-coverage, long-lasting but natural-looking concealer is available in a pleasant vary of shades that keep true to paint on the pores and skin (no oxidizing!). Definitely a go, however FYI, you’ll have to regulate to a shade or two darker than your typical MAC coloration, since the 24-HR concealers run barely darker than I anticipated them to. I normally put on Studio Fix Foundation NC42 on my face, and once I put on 24-HR as a basis, I am going with NC43, as a result of the NC42 is simply too mild.
GIRL. Soft Focus! It’s the identify of the yellowish highlighter on this six-pan palette of face powders for bronzing, contouring and highlighting. As a forehead bone spotlight, it’s perfection, and the key’s the sheen. When I mix a bit of simply beneath the highest level of my arch, it subtly displays the mild to make my brows look lifted and greater and my eyes look extra open. And not like your typical frosty highlighter, Soft Focus does this with out blinding whomever’s watching ya.
Pumpkin spice 4 life! 🎃
