Blush -MAC Cosmetics -Mineralize Blush - Love Joy

on 11/17/2018 2:25:00 AM


I purchased warm soul and love joy together a million years ago before “the change”. Dark reds browns shimmery wonders of which warm soul was defoooo the darker - so I actually bac2mac’d it (before I knew it’d been reformulated; now I’m pissed cuz I don’t have a special item boo hoo). Not many pale review so here goes. I’m NW20 on a tan day. More like NW15 really. I’m currently wearing that (NW15) in Studio Sculpt. I even have gone to NC10 in pro longwear before it came lighter in NWs. I’m very red though and don’t like to counter it except nose area. My whole body is red and I ‘tan’ rose gold. Although I use many actives and I’m an SPF vigilante. Love Joy works for my pale arse with a feather light touch and lasts allll day. The reddish hue totally goes with my ruddy skin! I agree with another reviewer who stated it’s like a blush, bronze and highlight all in one! I have many Mineralize blush shades and this (and my vintage warm soul I discarded like a used Kleenex) is like so much more pigmented than ANYY of them it’s totally insane. It builds to clown territory so easily on me. If I do not use like a loose fan brush and barely swipe across top and then tap multiple times I’m a clown. I bought this BC (before children). It’s still a dome. My kids are adolescents.

Eyeliner -MAC Cosmetics -Kajal Crayon

on 11/16/2018 1:05:00 PM


The Crayon is long lasting on the waterline, pigmentation is good. It did not smudge or fade in the 6 hours that i wore. Love the colours. If you are using for waterline only, it will last you long but I doubt it will last long if you use for the outer lid like crayon. The packaging is nice but one has to be careful whilst opening or you can snip the tip whilst opening.

Blush -MAC Cosmetics -Sheertone Shimmer Blush - Ambering Rose

on 11/16/2018 10:25:00 AM


I took a chance ordering this blush because I had not tested it in person. I actually first heard about t when a makeup artist named it as her all time favorite blush in her makeup kit. I loved it once I actually received it and tried it. This color is a beautiful and natural almost sheer strawberry color on my NC25-N30 asking tone. I applied it very lightly and gently built it up and loved the result. Its different than any other shade in my makeup case because I tend to go for peaches and peaches with slight pink. I have a hard time finding a pink or rose blush that works with my skin tone without looking clownish. However- this blush is absolutely gorgeous on and looked very natural when applied lightly. I think this could work for many different skin tones as I’ve seen photos of this on fair skin, as well as dark complexions and I personally have medium tan with yellow undertones. So it’s very versatile.

Blush -MAC Cosmetics -Sheertone Shimmer - Springsheen

on 11/16/2018 10:16:00 AM


This is a beautiful color. I have worn Nars orgasm for over a decade, and can agree that this blush is the closest to Orgasm than any other blush I’ve tried. I actually think I prefer Springsheen because when built up it’s a tad peachier than Orgasm, which I prefer. Overall its a gorgeous peachy pink with slight shimmer. My skin tone is NC25-NC30, and like Orgasm , when I first applied I thought it was going to be too light and not show up. I had to give it a few swipes for the color to show, but when it did it’s beautiful. I like that you can really apply the color light or build it up. Really brightens the face. Beautiful especially for spring & summer.

Blush -MAC Cosmetics -Powder Blush- Melba

on 11/16/2018 10:09:00 AM


Had to finally try this blush after seeing so many positive reviews, and I’m glad I did. My skin tone is NC25-NC30 (light medium tan with yellow undertones) This is a beautiful light peachy beige on me. I actually felt like I had to give it a few swipes for it to really show up on me, but when it did it was a very beautiful warmth to my cheeks. Brightens the face. I actually like that I had to give it a few swipes because I don’t think I can go overboard with this color. Very soft and natural looking. Highly recommend.
