Late Birthday MAC Haul

This year I've celebrated my 27th birthday with a make-up look post you've probably noticed somewhere at the blog and I try not to make a big deal out of my birthday – scratch that, that's a lie. I love to make a huge deal on my birthday and I expect cakes and castles but that's just the only child in me screaming; “I want to feel special’. Sounds something a spoiled brat would do but sometimes grown-ups also act or at least feel that way. Because life likes to mess with me on different levels, it's almost a tradition that on my birthday; a)it rains and b)I don't get a present. Neither of two are horrendous but they can be a bit meh. Luckily, the weather was amazing on my birthday this year and I have eaten a whole lotta cake and felt very loved and blessed. Somehow, this was the first year when I never asked for or expected a gift. Truly, I'm not making this up – I've surprised myself as well. It seems that I felt so happy with everything as it was and never had the need to ask for anything. And if you're wondering what that husband of mine was doing – he also has a quirky tradition that lasts ten years. He never, ever buys me presents on significant dates. Not because he forgets, he never forgets but he despises the commercialisation of birthdays, Valentine's day, New Years, etc. He just doesn't like the idea of thinking of gifting someone presents on those specific days. Instead, he prefers to surprise me and give me something he knows I like right out of the blue, on random days. I must admit that, even though I was complaining during the first year of this practice – now I love it! I find it very unique, something of ours and would you believe me if I told you that a lavish breakfast, massage and a box of chocolates after a night shift puts all those flashy gifts and roses to shame? 

Ove godine sam proslavila dvadeset i sedmi rodjendan uz post o make-upu koji sam nosila taj dan te ste ga sigurno negdje primjetile na blogu. Inace nisam sklona dramatizovanju na svoj rodjendan – ma, prekrizite to jer uopste nije istina. Ja volim da puno pricam o svom rodjendanu te ocekujem kolace i kule no to je samo jedino dijete u meni koje zeli reci; ‘Zelim se osjecati posebno’. Tipicno ponasanje za razmazeno derle no nekada i odrasli imaju te momente na koje nisu ponosni ili barem se nekada tako osjecamo. Posto se zivot voli cesto ‘nasaliti’ sa mnom, skoro je pa tradicija da na moj rodjendan; a)pada kisa ili b)ne dobijem poklon. Niti jedan od ta dva scenarija nije tragican (daleko od toga) no mogu malo oboriti raspolozenje. Srecom, vrijeme je bilo prekrasno ove godine na taj drugi juli i jela sam kolaca do granice kada mi se pocelo mantati pa sam imala fazu hiperaktivnosti od silnog secera i uopsteno, osjecala sam se jako voljenom i sretnom. Nekako, tog dana je pobjegla misao da pozelim ili spomenem tu utisnutu zelju za formalnim poklonom. Istina je, zaista vas ne zezam i ne zavaravam sebe – cak sam se prilicno iznenadila vlastitom reakcijom. Izgleda da su mi sve lijepe stvari, ljudi koje volim skrenuli paznju na to da uzivam u tom danu, lijepom samom po sebi i skroz sam zaboravila na to pitanje koje mi je inace zaokupljalo misli. Ukoliko se pitate, pa sta taj muz-puz radi svo to vrijeme, koja je njegova uloga u prici – i on ima tradiciju, prilicno neobicnu, koja traje skoro deset godina izmedju nas. Nikada mi ne kupuje poklone na dane poput rodjendana, Valentinova, za Novu Godinu i sl. Jendostavno mu je odbojna ideja komercijalizacije tih datuma i potpuno je odbacuje. Ono sto on radi jeste da me voli iznenaditi i kupiti mi nesto sto zna da zelim mjesecima – na potpuno obican dan, iznenada. Moram priznati da mi je sve to djelovalo cudno tokom prve godine no sada? Potpuno sam preobracena! Mislim da je to dosta originalan pristup stvarima, nesto nase i ne znam da li cete mi vjerovati ali kada me doceka iz nocne smjene sa bogatim doruckom, dobrom cokoladom (mini Oreos, ahh…) i pocasti me masazom – to u mojim ocima posrami i najekstravagantniji poklon.

Well, he did treat me after my birthday this year as he knows I'm really into MAC right now. He said that I decide which four or five things I want and he'll cover the expenses. Not a bad deal, if I say so myself. I've purchased MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Springsheen. This is my first MAC blush and I couldn't be more excited about it. It looks absolutely stunning! I must say that I dig the MAC black packaging and they do something with it so that it somehow stands apart from other black cased make-up. Is it the shimmer or the slight oval shape? I have no clue but I'm a fan. Springsheen seems like a perfect summer blush to me. It's warm, peachy and bronz-y and has a gorgeous, finely milled gold shimmer running through. Cannot wait to try it on my cheeks. My first eyeshadow from this brand isn't a nude as you'd expect but those will come too. MAC Frost Eye Shadow in Steamy caught my attention when Nic from Pixiwoo made this amazing look using it. It's a seafoam/turquouise goodness and I'm already planning to do my own look with it. I think this fella may surprise all those sceptic gals out there regarding its versatility or wearability. As for MAC lipsticks, I've previously purchased Shy Girl and Pure Zen – both I'm very much in love with. Now I've got my hands on the beautiful MAC Lustre Lipstick in Viva Glam V. It looks brown-ish and shot with a golden shimmer – not a description of anything life-changing, right? Well, if you must know why I've purchased it – I've read that this is a unique lipstick which fits all skin tones, absolutely all. That's something I have to try, no? And finally, I got my hands on MAC Amplified Lipstick in Craving. Oh my. This must be one of the most gorgeous lipsticks I've seen. Such a berry/mauve beaut! It looks very similar to my natural lip color, maybe a bit more intense. This baby will be ideal as a transition lip from summer to autumn. Tell me if you like this MAC haul of mine. Are you a proud owner of any of these bits?

Ove godine me pocastio i nakon rodjendana posto zna da me MAC kozmetika dosta zanima u posljednje vrijeme. Rekao je samo da se odlucim sta zelim i troskovi su njegova briga. Moram priznati da mi ovaj dogovor uopste nije djelovao ‘rdjavo. Iskoristila sam priliku da kupim MAC Sheertone Shimmer rumenilo u nijansi Springsheen. Ovo je moje prvo MAC rumenilo i jako mi se dopada na prvi pogled. Moram reci da mi je i pakovanje MAC proizvoda dosta privlacno i ima nesto u vezi njega sto ga cini malo drugacijim od ostalih klasicnih crnih ambalaza. Da li je sitni shimmer u pitanju ili suptilne obline zbog kojih lijepo leze u ruci –  ne znam ali njihova sam ljubiteljica. Springsheen nijansa mi djeluje idealnom za ljeto. Tople je breskvaste, pomalo bronzane boje i prozeta je finim shimmerom. Nestrpljivo ocekujem prvo isprobavanje na obrascicima. Moja prva sjena za oci ovog brenda nije u zemljanim tonovima sto bi vecina ocekivala no i one ce doci na red. MAC Frost sjena za oci u nijansi Steamy mi je prvi put privukla paznju nakon sto sam pogledala video u kojem Nic iz Pixiwoo tima kreira look sa njom. Radi se o tirkiznoj nijansi morske pjene te planiram napraviti i vlastiti ‘look’ sa njom za blog. Mislim da bi ovaj malisan mogao razuvjeriti sve skeptike medju vama glede nosivosti ove nijanse. Sto se MAC ruzeva za usne tice, od ranije posjedujem Shy Girl i Pure Zen nijanse u koje sam zaljubljena. Sada sam nabavila MAC Lustre ruz u nijansi Viva Glam V. Djeluje smedjkasto i prozet je sitnim zlatnim shimmerom – po opisu ne djeluje posebno, zar ne? Ako zelite znati zasto sam ga kupila – na glasu je kao posebna nijansa koja pristaje bukvalno svakom tonu koze. Meni to zvuci kao nesto vrijedno isprobavanja. I za kraj, MAC Amplified ruz u nijansi Craving. Napokon je moj i mjerkala sam ga dugo vremena. Uzivo je jos ljepsi nego na fotografijama jer je nijansa mauve/bobicastog voca naprosto fantasticna! Dosta je slican prirodnoj nijansi mojih usana, mozda je malo intenzivniji. Mislim da ce biti idealan kao prelazni ruz iz ljeta u jesen. Recite mi sta mislite o kupovini i da li ste ponosna vlasnica nekog od ovih ljepotana? Ako se pitate gdje sam nabavila ove MAC slatkise, znate vec od ranije da MAC kozmetiku kupujem preko Facebook stranice Svijet Kozmetike.
