I received these products complimentary for review from Indeed Labs and Topbox Circle. I’ve been trying to get more into skincare. I currently have combination skin, with some dry patches and I still deal with breakouts. I was really excited about the products I received […]

I’ve been a follower of Allana Davison for a couple years now. I enjoy influencers, especially Canadian ones. Allana is known for makeup and lifestyle posts and videos. I like her style, it’s very classic with a twist. I find her approachable and fun.
She recently released a set with Canadian brand MAC Cosmetics, that is only available here in the Great White North. It’s rare that something comes out just for us! When I saw the set, I could see myself using every single product in it. The set itself is $65, but the value is $141.
I love MAC lipsticks, but I had never tried anything else from them. Sets are an awesome way to try a bunch of different products for a good price. I was really excited to try a few more things.
Here’s what is in the set:
This shade is a sheer, creamy neutral pink that is perfect for everyday wear. I don’t usually go this basic with lipsticks, but I love having a colour like this around. I prefer to wear it over a nude lip liner.
Teddy is described as an intense bronze eyeliner. I don’t even feel like I’m being hyperbolic in saying this is the best eyeliner I’ve ever tried. It makes me wonder if I’ve only ever tried bad eyeliners before? It’s so creamy, but long-lasting. The colour is so stunning. This is my favourite item in the box, and I didn’t really expect it to be.
This is a cool-toned beige-pink blush. It’s a really nice colour that I think would work well on a variety of skin tones. It’s buildable, but it doesn’t go on too strong right off the hop. I enjoy this product a lot.
Woodwinked is a warm antique gold shadow. If I HAD to say there was a disappointing product in this set, I think this might be it. Don’t get me wrong, I still like it and I’m going to get a lot of use out of it, but compared to everything else I find this just a touch lackluster. I just wish it was a little had a little more impact. It’s great for all over the lid.
This eyeshadow is a peachy soft neutral that is the perfect transition shadow. I was pretty impressed with how pigmented this shadow is. I really didn’t think it would make much of an impact.
I knew I was going to love this mascara. It has the plastic bristled brush that I gravitate towards, and it’s touted as a lengthening mascara. I love the look it gives me eyelashes. It comes off easily at the end of the night, but doesn’t transfer during the day.
