MAC In The Groove

Ordered myself a cheeky little something a few weeks ago…

I can’t resist writing a little message for myself with my MAC orders, it makes me feel happy and spoilt :)  This package was to celebrate all the hard work I think I’ve done lately and everything I’ve achieved this year at uni.

I only ordered two items from In the Groove as I’m currently working hard to get rid of my overdraft but I needed to get my hands on Jazzed before it sold out and I was just in time.  I also ordered Happy Together mineralized blush last minute.

Happy Together is stunning but I’m having trouble with making it look natural with my pale skin.  The darker shade is too orange for me and looks really dark on my cheeks.  The highlight colour is stunning though and I can see myself using that side of it lots. 

I’m sure by now you’ve many many comparisons of Ever Hip and Jazzed but I wanted to do my own!  Jazzed is a lot more orangey an Ever Hip has a slight pink tinge to it.  I think I prefer Ever Hip as it is a tad more wearable in my opinion, but Jazzed is a must have for the summer! 

However – Is anyone else having a problem with Jazzed really emphasizing imperfections on the lips?  It makes my lips look quite dry and clings to the tiniest of dry flakes and also applies quite patchy.  I don’t mind too much as I have a lip scrub and can still use it with lip balm, but it can be annoying.

This is a short one as I’m just waiting for my dresser to be delivered by a courier and its already an hour late! I’m getting impatient. 

Do you prefer Ever Hip or Jazzed?  Is anyone else having problems with Jazzed and dry lips? Any tips on how to get Happy Together to look good on my skin?

  2. have you tried buffing the darker colour under your cheekbones? as if you were contouring but not too heavy handed, because its not that dark so i reckon it would give a really subtle contour? x

  3. i convinced myself i didn't need jazzed because i already have vegas volt. and although they're not exactly the same shade, they're both coral/orangey. ever hip looks lovely though. yet another product i missed out on :p.

    it's too bad about the blush; but as you said, the highlight colour is indeed lovely.

  6. Jazzed is gorgeous! As for Happy Together, you can try applying the darker shade really lightly as a contour, with the highlight over top, then setting it with a powder? I do that with one of my bronzers that looks too orange on my skin, and it works fine :)

    Ever Hip is the reason why I did not buy Jazzed.
