Mac Technique Seminar (and a little haul)!

March is here and it's been a while since my last post due to family health problems (everything is alright now!).

Although I'm a known Mac fan, I had never participated in a Mac technique seminar, so, when my local Mac artist informed me of an upcoming event, I knew it was just the thing to get me back on track (lol!).

It lasted about an hour and a half and it was very interesting to watch live how a makeup artist uses tools and products in general. We had the chance to see two different makeup looks demonstrated on two models and we were given a little notebook with the respective face charts, tips and tricks, etc.
It was a really pleasant interval to my everyday routine!

The participation was free of charge and you could also buy anything you wanted with a 15% price reduction, so I took the opportunity to buy the following three items ( two of them were scheduled purchases, one was a spontaneous reaction!)

Mineralize Charged Water - I love this stuff because it really resfreshes and hydrates my face. Can be used before or after makeup (or both ways) and the only thing that I would love more is to see it available in a mini bottle as well, like the fix +, so I can keep it in my makeup bag. No big deal since I just filled an empty mini fix + bottle I had, just saying!

Fling eye brow mechanical pencil: this brow pencil was in my to buy list for months, but every time I entered a Mac shop I totally forgot about it! Fling is described as "light taupe ash blonde" and, although I'm definitely not an ash blonde, it is the perfect match for me. I never liked harsh, intense brows on me,I just want them defined and apparent, but not overwhelming. I was debating whether I should get Fling or Lingering, but Lingering is quite darker and more warm, so Fling was the winner! The main reason I wanted a pencil from this line is the fact that they are really long lasting, something that doesn't happen when I use wax+powder type of brow products, it also takes less time to fill my brows this way (handy for these mornings when I operate on auto pilot, LOL!).

Last item I purchased (the spontaneous reaction I mentioned above) was the Prep+Prime skin brightening serum. It was used on a model and being curious, I tried it on the back of my hand. Guess what? I really liked it! The reason is that I could see a subtle difference comparing my two hands, the one where the serum was applied looked more even and smooth and the lines where less visible. On my hands it was apparent enough since they are constantly dry and unless I exfoliate and hydrate them regularly they look a bit harsh and "tired".
It can be applied directly on bare skin or mixed with the foundation.

Prices (with the 15% off price reduction)

Mineralize Charged Water €18,70
Prep+Prime Skin Brightening Serum €31,45
Fling Eye Brow Pencil 14,02

Enough said, time for a few photos!

Hope you're all well and thriving!


  1. γειααα!το σερουμ ειναι φανταστικο!αυτο χρησιμοποιω κ εγω και ειναι το μονο που ανεχεται το δερμα μου :)

    1. Δεν είχα αγοράσει ξανά παρόμοιο προϊόν και μου άρεσε το αποτέλεσμα!

  2. Πρέπει να ήταν πολύ όμορφη εμπειρία...
    Εγώ πρόσφατα αγόρασα το Lingering και μ'έχει βολέψει πολύ και όντως είναι πολύ σταθερό!
    Παρ'όλα αυτά νομίζω πως και σε μένα βγαίνει λίγο σκούρο!
    Θα κοιτάξω σίγουρα για το fling την επόμενη φορά!

    1. Ρωτα σε ένα κατάστημα, νομίζω γίνονται μία φορά τον μήνα, κάθε φορά διαφορετικό σεμινάριο, εγω σίγουρα θα ξαναπαω! Τα μολύβια τα δοκίμασα κατευθείαν στα φρύδια, στο ένα το fling και στο άλλο το lingering (lol!), στο χέρι δεν μπορείς να καταλάβεις πως θα είναι το τελικό αποτέλεσμα.
