Eye Shadow -MAC - Pro Longwear Paint Pot

Amazingly good. I usually wear it on its own (I have the color 'groundwork'). It gives a subtile color, stays in place all day (although I have very oily lids) and is easy to remove with a normal make-up remover. The groundwork color is also great to combine with taupy/brown eyeshadows. Will buy some extra colors!

Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

It's definitely not transparent in a flash photo! I appreciate that this product is for sensitive skin and eyes, but the photo flash-back is a deal-breaker.

I usually love mac however this was not a good concealer for me. It dried out my undereye area and didn't even cover well. Disappointed in this one


Powder -MAC - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

Iv been using this for many many years and it's just become a staple in my bag. I use nc43 it does leave me oily after a few hours but it is very good for a powder. The colour is spot on and I sometimes use it with a brush on top of liquid foundation if I need more coverage. I would recommend it.

Lip Treatments -MAC - Lip Scrubtious

I completely love this - I was using the lush one which is cheaper but this is vastly superior, less hard and harsh. I have the flavour fruit of passion, takes off the dead skin, leaves your lips soft - all you want really.


Eyeliner -MAC - Kajal Crayon

I know this is a limited edition product, but hopefully MAC will make it permanent. I was looking for a liner that will stay on my upper waterline. I read really good things about this on Temptalia so I bought it in Flourish Me Deep. It's not perfect, but I can make it work. I really love the packaging and the shape. I love that it's not a pencil. I'm always freaked out I'll hurt my eyes with the wooden part of an eyepencil. If I just throw it on my waterline it will migrate to the lower waterline. But someone here on MUA suggested I try to keep my eyes open and look up for like 10 seconds after I've applied it and also leave a bit of time between two applications. I also noticed that if I use another liner on my lower waterline (e. g. an Essence nude one or MAC Powersurge or even this same kajal liner) the liner on the upper waterline will stay there better. And I need to apply the liner to my lower waterline first and let it set a bit. I know it sounds like a lot of work but this is the best way I've found to make sure the liner stays on my upper waterline. It will still migrate after about 6 hours, but still better than half an hour. I've tried a few others before, the best was Bare Minerals Round the Clock e/l, but it's discontinued and (probably because it's old) it sometime crumbled/flaked onto my cheeks, not a lot, but still. Others I've tried: MAC Technakohl in Graphblack, I have to go over my waterlines many times to have a decent line and it'll disappear anyway in a couple of hours. Inglot Kohl pencil in black is not bad, but it'll still migrate to my lower lashline and the pencil form freaks me out. I might experiment with it more and try to make it work with the 'tricks' I'm using for the MAC kajal crayon and see. I don't have a lot of options where I live so I'm happy MAC is available to me here and I'm really happy with this liner, but it's not 100%. (I doubt anything would be for this purpose.)


Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Soft Ochre

I have combination skin. I wouldn't say my eyelids are oily but they're not dry either. This creased on my lids, even when I put just a small dab of it with my ring finger. My eyeshadows crack with this underneath. I am so disappointed by this overhyped product. So far though it does okay as an undereye concealer on top of a moisturizing CC cream base.


Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Skin Smoother

I use this with a flat foundation brush, usually the RT Pointed Foundation Brush, just on the areas I get the most oily and where I have more noticeable pores, like my forehead, nose and sides of my nose and chin (and I don't use much). I like it, although it's very siliconey it works at smoothing my skin and making my foundation last longer. To me it's like Benefit's Porefessional but this one actually works. Do not purchase if you hate silicone based primers and do not use this all over the face! I would say it's more suitable for oily skin types.

Eye Shadow -MAC - Satin - Smut

Why did it take me so long to buy this? It's perfect! It's everything I wanted in an eyeliner or smokey eye. As a liner it goes with pretty much every shadow I use. Def a re buy.

Eye Shadow -MAC - Veluxe - Sketch

Here's an oldie but a goodie. I've neglected this for over a year and decided to use it this morning.
I'm around NC20, brown eyes and black eyebrows. This is a gorgeous colour to use for defining.. I like to use it on my bottom lashes ( blended out with Wedge) and to define the crease or outer V. I like to use a lighter transition shade to buff out the edges for a soft smoked out appearance.
Purple type colours are always a bit difficult to blend, but I've not had much trouble with this. It's not the silkiest formula but still easy to work with.
So far I've used it with All that Glitters, Vex, Shroom, Wedge, Shale, Satin Taupe, Sumptuos Olive and Swish. All turned out lovely.
