Lipstick -MAC -Pink Plaid

The perfect neutral/leaning blue based mauvy pink.. This shade really brightens up my neutral N25 skin tone well. I have Brave and Faux, which are both along the same color scheme as Pink Plaid, but I find that Pink Plaid flatters me more, and makes my teeth look whiter. It's a matte, but I find it a lot more comfortable than most MAC mattes. Definitely recommend.

A great spring/summer pink. One of my everyday picks for daytime wear. Very moisturizing. Color is bright without being neon.

Lipstick -MAC -Matte - Diva

A nice burgundy red, great for evening wear or for a bolder daytime look. Has blue undertones. Can be drying if worn all day, and some sort of liner is a must.

This is a color that I would recommend trying in the store if you can. Not everyone can pull it off. IMO this looks best with fairer or darker skin. Those in between might not like it.

It's a nice spring/summer shade that's a little different without being too crazy. It leans a little more toward orange than pink. I wear it with either mascara only or a very neutral eye.

It's a satin finish, so lips should be exfoliated and moisturized. Might be drying if worn all day.

Eye Shadow -MAC -Dazzleshadow - She Sparkles

Dazzleshadow = MAC's response to UD Moondust shadow.

I tried She Sparkles after seeing it on a MUA in a MAC store. I'm not sure I'd wear this on its own, but over shadow it's beautiful.

As described on the MAC site, this is a light gray with silver-y sparkles. It's not chunky glitter--in indirect light it looks like it gives a nice sheen, but in sunlight or direct light, it does indeed sparkle. I really like wearing it over other light shadows (Shroom, for example), as it adds a bit of fun. It doesn't seem pigmented enough to wear on its own.

The texture isn't bad for a super shimmery e/s. It's easy to apply with my finger and I can pack it on easily with no fallout. I haven't tried using it with a brush, because I usually have better luck applying shadows like this with a clean finger.

I like this enough that I would repurchase this if I use it up, as it's as good as the UD Moondust shadow single that I have and at a lower price point. I wish that MAC would make this available in a pro pan as opposed to a pot, but that's a very minor gripe.

Mascara -MAC -Haute & Naughty Lash

I've bought this a few times, mainly because of the two-in-one wands that come out of the same tube. The smaller screw-top wand I use for a during the day look as it's quite natural, and the thicker wand gives much more coverage. It seems to last for ages too and if it goes a bit thick/dry in the tube, I just add a couple of drops of contact lens solution to it to thin it out a bit.


Primer/ Corrector -MAC -Prep + Prime Skin

This makes my face silky soft and my skin look nice before I put on foundation. I've got oily skin and it seems to keep the shine at bay. It's fragrance-free and the packaging is easy to use without being messy.


Eye Primer -MAC -Prep + Prime Eye

Best one I've tried so far. Does what it says and eyeshadow stays put throughout the day without any creasing at all. The only thing I don't like about it is that when it goes on, it stays a little sticky on your eyelid so makes sweeping eyeshadow over the eyelid a little tricky as it can 'drag' a little if you put too much on. You really don't need a lot so a tube lasts you a long time.


Liquid -MAC -Select SPF 15 Foundation

foto

This is the best foundation I've tried, and I've tried a lot of different high-end brands. I like it because it keeps my oily face reasonably shine-free throughout the day and I don't have to re-touch it often. It gives quite a thick coverage so hides blemishes etc. I'm on my 6th bottle now and would recommend it. I apply it with a brush.


Fragrances -MAC -Velvet Teddy Shadescents

I'm sorry, but this stuff stinks. Like, literally. I'm not saying it doesn't have good staying power or that it doesn't have much fragrance to it because unfortunately for my nose it has both of those things. I'm saying it literally stinks. Like, people smoking cigars and burning incense stinks. Which is wonderful I suppose if you like those things but I do not. It's funny, I got a deluxe sized sample of this and smelling it in the bottle I was like, ok, I like dark smoky sexy fragrances I'll try it. OMG. First spritz the tobacco and musk hit me in the face like a backhand from Andre the Giant. The dry down was actually kind of pleasant, a nice musky vanilla scent. I came on here to read reviews and was surprised to see they were mostly positive! So I was like, ok, what the heck, I'll try it again. Same thing but no nice dry down that time.

Overall, I'd say if this is your style of a perfume and you smell something entirely different, go for it! However, if you're sensitive to fragrances, I'd definitely say this one is a "try it before you buy it" kinda deal. Definitely did NOT work for me. DISLIKE!!!!
