Brows -MAC Cosmetics -Fluidline Brow Gelcreme

I possess horrid over- plucked (ugh the 90s teen years) finally after 20 years coming back brows. (Now 39). Naturally brunette, I was ‘blessed’ with BLONDE lashes and brows. So as a blonde (level 6/7-12), it’s dirty blonde. The one shade down, the lightest, looks like you painted WHITE OUT on your brow in flash photography. In natural light ok only if you’re totally platinum.

Now, I’ve gone past my natural dark brunette (for which I woulda gone below deep dark) into jet black territory so I’ve gotten deep dark brown. Oh... PERFECTION. Black brows to me are a little...unnatural and harsh. Especially against my nw13-15 skintone. I’m going for Snow White this fall and winter thinking men may leave me alone more but everyone seems to dig it the most (including me & my gal pals too!!!). With the MAC brow brush this applies as heavy or light as you’d like. Lately I like it bold, with my pinky pallor, no matter a red/oxblood lip and simple eye (painterly with a tight line on top with top only mascara, or my new fave plummy purple dark smoky shadow with a nice nude lip (such as fleshpot). Yes... I’m so pale I can rock fleshpot haaaa. A strong (not manly Bert from he and Ernie) brow has been taking years off of my face. What I like about this product whatever the shade is that is it seems to build brow hairs where none existed........ you’re able to make a nice sharp not smudgy tail with thickness since it clings to and quadruples hairs AND long time adheres to skin (bald patches). Long wearing — have sweat and swam with minimal fade.

In comparison to Anastasia dipbrow, this wins hands down. Same texture as fluidline blacktrack liner in pot. Soft. Buttery. Smooth. You’ll use before it dries if u cap tightly and store upside down. Dipbrow — besides it’s anoyijng quick dry out (nowhere near as soft textured), I’d have to use lid as a wipe off palette for extra and it just is an extra step like who wants to do a brow?! However you may put a rip or 2 of pure coco oil in there, nuke a few seconds, stir, and it comes out netyer! Still no candle to MAC sorry. Although dipbrow just as long lasting. Both require a learning curve. A nice drama brow for a night out is this brow gelcreme, Anastasia powder duo in ebony (charcoal is BLACK in Anastasia — I asked) — then tame flyaways with either a Maybelline fiberlash biwk mascara in dark brow or a clear. Oh ya - wipe brush against tissue when done

Pressed Powders -MAC Cosmetics -Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light Plus

i am a nc20 and a c2 in face and body this is a tad bit light for me but perfect for my undereyes. when im in a hurry i use a small brush and brush it over my undereyes and i literally look like i used concealer and its not drying at all i have very dry undereyes. I also use this to blend out harsh edges of eyeshadow or my paintpot in groundwork, it works like my mac brule eyeshadow. Very versatile powder and great formula. Ive used this since i was in highschool thats over 8 years ago. It does has jojoba oil in it though if you are sensitive it will break you out but if it doesnt then your in luck! its a nice powder thats skin like. I want this in the shade medium after im done with the light. Hopefully i am lighting in the winter to be able to use this all over the face. I have dry skin now because of benzoyl peroxide, i remeber i did het oily using this in the tzone back in highschool so if you are very oily i wouldnt recommend because it is not oily controlling.

This is a blue grey good for nightout smokey eye. Its a huge pot so i dont think ill ever finish it. I dont reach for this much but it is a nice one to have in the collection. I have mostly boring browns. Its a good formula not chalky. I like the slighty blue tint to it. i wouldnt repurchase because its a lot of product. if you are looking for a grey shadow thats easy to blend with a unique blue in it this is great one to check out

this eyeshadow in centre stage is huge lol its a chocolatey brown with slight shimmer/sheen. kind of remind me of mulch.l. its a beautiful brown to use all over the lids for smokey eye. I feel like this is the only shimmery deep brown i ever need because its so much product. i can also line the lids with this. i wouldnt repruchase bacause i dont thnk ill ever run out. And i dont rock this dark of a brown so i rarely reach for this unless its a night out

Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -this & that

on 9/25/2018 5:10:00 PM

this is a champagne peachy shimmer along with a cream white shimmer duo eyeshadow thats baked. I got this in a swap and felt like it was a bit meh. i threw it in my purse for touch ups on days where i run out the door without anything on my eyes. i usually get oily lids so this helps mattify and brighten my eyes. surprising i do enjoy using this because i can use my fingers and just dab it on the eyes and im good to go. the shimmer isnt chunky or glittery, its more of a sheen. Its actually very close to my skintone in nc20 and i think its really natural and pretty. This is limited edition so i wont be able to repurchase but if you can get your hands on this and you are looking for highlight color or an all over sheen to the lids, this will be a good one to have in your collection. its def a easy to use on the go product for me.
