My hubby and I recently celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary! Although he doesn't always understand my new found obsession with makeup he was a sweetheart and took me to MAC! It was my first time there and thankfully we went nice and early cuz it does get pretty busy there especially on a weekend! I have to say the MUA there was extremely nice, patient, and helpful. Ive had bad experiences before with the MUA's in department stores.
I ended up purchasing the MAC Face and Body Foundation in C6 and MAC Cremesheen lipstick in Modesty.
The MAC Face and Body Foundation was recommended to me because of my oily/combination, acne-prone skin, apparently its one of the few foundations offered by MAC that are oil free and water based. Its a light buildable foundation that is supposed to be transfer proof however I find that it does leave my cell phone greasy :(

Mac Modesty is my first MAC lipstick and I love it. It is a nice pink with a hint of gold sheen in it. Its hard to find pink lipsticks that go well with
my skin-tone without washing me out or looking too blue. I'm Indian and I find that I have very pigmented lips. Now when I say pigmented, I don't mean a darker shade of pink or red. I mean pigmented in the sense that I have a brown upper lip and my bottom lip looks like its been lined with brown lipliner :(
The cremesheen formulation does a great job of covering up the brown in my lips. When its in my budget I definitely want to try an amplified creme lippie :)
