MAC Attack!

I know I’ve stated time and time again that I’m so over Lip Liners. In fact, I’m planning on getting rid of all of the Lip Liners I currently own. Every. Single. One. That’s still the plan. However, after the whole Driver’s License/Passport Photo fiasco (full deets here), I felt it was absolutely vital that I get my hands on the MAC Lip Pencil in the shade Spice! Something about this particular shade really compliments my sallow skintone! Plus, if you’re down for a little cheating (^_~) Spice is perfect for over-drawing lips (to make them look bigger). I mean, I distinctly remember Spice being incredibly flattering when paired with a wide range of Nude Lippies!

Also, for a photo meant to be used in an official document (that I was supposed to be hauling around for the next 10 years or so), Red seemed too show-y and dramatic (despite the fact that I actually ended up actually going with Red for the first round of photos lol), Orange seemed too playful, whereas Pink seemed too girly and I just don’t do Fuchsia nor Purple. Every single one of my Nude Lippies might’ve looked fine, face-to-face, but I was positive that without the help of a proper Lip Liner, they’d totally wash me out in photos. That’s precisely why I needed MAC Spice Lip Pencil. I actually already own Spice, but it seems to have gotten lost in the sea of makeup products that is my my bedroom. I’ve searched everywhere, but just can’t seem to find it. So after hitting up Sephora (haulage here) I decided to make a quick stop at MAC to repurchase Spice!

The Spice is life!
