NYC Goodies: MAC and Chanel


I’m back! I had a wonderful time in New York, and before I share with you all the details of my trip, I thought I’d share some of the beauty things I picked up while I was in the city. I didn’t have much time to go shopping, since I was technically working, but I did have time to pop into the Chanel Boutique and the MAC store in Times Square. IMG_4608[1]

MAC Pigment in Old Gold

I knew exactly what I wanted before I went into the MAC Store. As expected, it was completely packed, and I could barely move. But luckily, there was a lovely saleswoman who helped me find everything I wanted and navigated the crowds for me. I knew I wanted the MAC pigment in Old Gold, because Tanya Burr wore it in one of her videos and I was absolutely obsessed. It is the most brilliant yellow-gold shade, with the slightest tint on green, just like tarnished gold. I bought the mini one because I knew that I would never use up a whole pigment.


Look at how beautiful that is!

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle


Next, I got the Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle. I’ve wanted this guy for so long! It seems like everyone in the beauty community has and loves this product.  It is a beautiful bronze color with streaks of gold through out. I like how versatile it is. It can be used as a light bronzer, a highlighter, and eyeshadow, or just an all over veil on the face for a gorgeous glowing look.

MAC Lipstick in Twig

IMG_4613[1]I’ve heard a lot about Twig and Mac Lipsticks in general, and I thought it was time that I tried one. Since I am no wear near a MAC store, I knew that this was my best oppurtunity to get one. The lipsticks come in several different finishes, and this is a Satin. It is a beautiful pinkish brown red, that would definitely be flattering on everyone. The formula is silky and long lasting, and comfortable on the my lips. I have to get more.

Chanel and Bergdorf’s

Now, I didn’t actually buy anything in these two stores because it was just a little out of my price range, but the woman I nanny for, Judy, gave me all of her lovely samples that she recieved with purchase. I was basically drooling over all of the beautiful lipsticks and eyeshadows and perfumes in Chanel, and although I knew I wasn’t going to get anything, it was still fun to look.

IMG_4612[1]I got this sample of Le Volume De Chanel Mascara, which is really nice. It makes my lashes long, but I don’t think it is special enough to pay full price. It is fun to say that I am wearing Chanel Mascara though!


Also at Chanel, I got two perfume samples. Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with perfume, and Chanel makes some of my favorite ever scents. Luckily, I was given samples of two perfumes that I don’t already own, so I was able to try out some new fragrances. Chanel has a line of perfumes called Les Exclusifs, and they are only sold at Chanel boutiques and I have been dying to smell them! I couldn’t believe I got a sample of 1932, one of the Exclusifs. I have not used it yet because I am saving it for something special, and I can’t wait to smell it. Also, they gave me a sample of Chance Eau Tendre. which is a really beautiful, wearable floral that anyone would love. At Bergdorf Goodman, I was given a sample of Chai de Robert Piguet, which is a scent that smells like green tea, and is really lovely.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. I plan on doing a separate post all about my trip, so stay tuned! I would love to see your comments!
