Lovin' Easy Neutrals

I'm still in a neutral kick. Neutrals are truly no-brainer choices for days when I feel too lazy or in a hurry to think of color combinations. I did try colors I don't usually wear, like Taylor Made mineral eyeshadow in Vintage. I foiled it using my MAC mixing medium, and it's similar in effect to my MAC Goldenaire pigment and Valerie Beauty multi-purpose in Miranda. I also think I nailed the right ratio of Meow's Naughty and Fierce Manx foundation (3:1). I used Naughty Manx in the Flawless Feline formula, and Fierce Manx in the Pampered Puss. I like the effect; it was neither too piled on or too light. I am also loving MAC's lipsticks and lipglasses. They have just the right shine, amazing texture, one million and one shades and formulas to choose from, and lastly, the vanilla scent is so pleasant and enticing. The price is also pretty reasonable compared to other department store brands. MAC's lip products are the major reason why I still use MAC despite my allegiance to mineral makeup companies. The wide color spectrum is simply unrivaled, and color choices are endless.
