Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -Dazzleshadow Liquid - Not Afraid to Sparkle

on 10/19/2018 12:03:00 PM

I love Stila Glitter and Glow and Shimmer and Glow shadows and was excited that MAC was coming out with a similar product. I decided to try Not Afraid to Sparkle, because I'm a 40-something woman who can't get enough sparkle (hey--don't judge me).

This is very sheer with lots of glitter--it's indeed very sparkly. You can barely see the beige base after applying it, but whoa *the glitter*! There's a lot of multicolored glitter in there. Using the doe-foot applicator, it's not easy to get an even layer. My lids were quite sparkly, as I expected.

Where this really fell flat on me, though, is that after two hours, it was a glittery crease on my lids, even though I wore it over a primer and a powder shadow. Usually that's enough to keep a liquid shadow in place for at least 4-5 hours. The glitter layer that I'd so carefully applied a few hours earlier was just a sad glittery line in my crease. Nice try, MAC.

Eyeliner -MAC Cosmetics -Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

on 10/18/2018 4:55:00 PM



- creamy
- very black and its matte
- easy to apply with a right brush
- a lot of product

-can be patchy
-needs layering a couple times to get intense color

the reason i wouldn't repurchase is because i think pen type liner are easier to use but for now i am not mad at it. I will cont to use this till i run out and decide if i will repurchase or not.

Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Frozen Violet

on 10/18/2018 4:52:00 PM


Its a good paintpot for a quick smokey eye but there is a lot of glitter flecks so if you dont like that then stay away. Its a purple silver smokey type of color and works well when applied with fingers. I wouldnt repurchase because it is very glittery but i do like using this under satin taupe eyeshadow for a super smokey purple taupe look!

***its a very easy smokey eye to achieve with this and satin taupe so i dont regret purchasing this.

Lip Gloss -MAC Cosmetics -Nymphette lipglass


I love Lipglass! I must have every color. It truly is the best lipgloss in the world. My only complaint is that it's a tiny bit sticky but I can live with that. When you want shine that will get you noticed go with MAC Lipglass! They don't call it that for nothin.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Red Rock

on 10/18/2018 6:26:00 AM

I am so glad that MAC added a bunch of new matte shades to their permanent collection, especially this stunning red!

Think of Ruby Woo, but less dry and much brighter - this is what Red Rock is. It is a wonderful, true red with a hint of blue. Makes your teeth white and is a wonderful, universally flattering red that more people should know about!

You can wear it all year long; it is that classy and chic! I normally pair mine with Ruby Woo lip liner and together they are a perfect match. For unedited arm, lip swatches of this and other MAC matte lipstick shades you can check out my separate review here ( Hope it helps!
