Mac Mini Haul /Review... Gold Deposit, Ruby Woo and Select Cover up Concealer!!!

You all know how much i love mac, yeaa? I always find myself buying something new anytime i get the opportunity. Anyways here is what i got recently....
Mineralized Skinfinish in Gold Deposit.... According to MAC, This is a luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face.Personally, i use this as a highlighter, on the high points of my cheeks, the bridge of my nose , cupids bow and on my chin. It is super pigmented and so a little goes a long way. For best results use a very light hand on your brush, so as not to look overly done when the light catches your face. I absolutely love this product as it is very long lasting, smooth textured and applies easily. It retails for N6,300 at the Mac store in Ikeja mall or Palms mall but it was not available when i wanted to purchase it, so my sister was kind enough to get this for me for $30 on to the next... This seemed strange to some people that i didn't have Mac ruby woo in my personal kit.... Well it seemed so to me too, not for any particular reason though.. I've used ruby woo in the past, and i've got a gazillion of red lipsticks, including other mac products. I gave out the first one I had, repurchased and put it in my work kit. Still felt i needed ruby woo for all its worth sha.... you know, let it be that i have mac ruby woo na, haba! Call it feel among, i must belong, any which way,i have mine now. Basically, ruby woo has got to be Mac's number 1 selling matte lipstick of all time. Super drying, very long lasting as in loooong lasting and rich in colour. The major problem i had with ruby woo was how dry it could get, but now i know the importance of moisturizing the lips before appying any matte lipcolour, its wooing all the way. This goes for N3,800 at the Mac stores in lagos, other retailers like AccessoriesNg and MyMakeupNG sell for N3,500. Lucky me my sweet sister got this for $16. Saved the best for last... I have tried studio finish as well as select moisturecover concealers, neither of the 2 gave me complete covearge, and i just don't like the idea of packing on and building up with foundation. I still needed something that would cover up d few spots i have, then i got some personal reviews from 2 people who had tried select cover up concealer, infact one doesn't even use any foundation at all, just the concealer. According to Mac, the select cover up concealer is a liquid camouflage for the skin, texture-free, virtually invisible. Comes in a tube, blends in, brightens and lightens dark areas, erases spots, evens-out skin tones. Makes skin flaw-free. Use pre-foundation, or on its own. Don't reveal it, conceal it! 100% true as i have used this concealer several times and it gives me exactly what i want. Any day i want maximum coverage, i reach for my select cover up concealer. I got this for N4,000 each at the Mac store, Palms shopping mall in Lekki. Seeing that they usually run out of stock i had to buy 2... Pheeew. For best results,i use my real techniques stippling brush to apply the conceal... You've gotta love Mac, right? Has anyone tried any of these? Share your thoughts... Least i forget, I am about to do my very first blog giveaway, it's going to be big trust me. I know alot of people read my bog, and that is very encouraging, Many many thanks everyone. This is just a reminder for those who aren't following yet, please do so, as the blog giveaway would only be for those who follow... *winks* Till my next post, as always... Stay Beautiful. CM
