Blush -MAC - Hipness- fafi collection

Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Natural Radiance

on 11/25/2015 3:16:00 PM

After finally breaking up with MAC's P+P SPF 50 primer -- the original formulation was HG for me, but the new one is yucko -- I fell in love with the pink Radiance.

Fills pores, prevents settling into lines, feels light and blends very well.

Pros: Light, smooth, foundation goes on beautifully overtop. Gives a dewy, natural effect (which I love).

Cons: Provides little mattification (I must blot about two hours after applying my makeup); no SPF, which is a bummer for me as I try to wear SPF 24/7 and I'll have to add another product into the mix in the summer which is always dicey.

Summary: Will repurchase as my go-to primer. Wish they would add an SPF to make it gloriously perfect!

Lipstick -MAC - Lustre Capricious

on 11/25/2015 12:19:00 PM


Couldn't love this lip color any more :)
It is definitely a lip color you can wear anywhere at anytime w any look
My lips can get chapped esp in the cold here in Canada but honestly it doesn't even chap my lips. .it has a moisturizing feel to it.
It's a color that everyone must have ! It's not too bold and not too boring.

Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

on 11/25/2015 8:18:00 AM


LOVE! I am super pale, so lots of golden highlighters can look really weird on me, as if i had put an eye shadow on and dark-ish gold fallout was all over my face. with this it doesn't look like that-even if i pile it on! I've also used it on dark friends of mine and it's equally beautiful :D buildable, without looking like you just put glitter on your face.

it's not as intense as any of The Balm's Manizer Sisters (Cindy, Betty or Mary) but can give a definite glow, or just a subtle one :)

Eyeliner -MAC - Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Industry

on 11/25/2015 7:11:00 AM


Prefer mechanical eye liners to classic but still this is one of my favorit eye pencils ever.
Pros: beatiful dark grey color; nor creamy nor stiff, perfect; easy to apply, do not drag
So-so: it's MAC so price; simple packaging; sometimes smudge just a little in the corner of eyes at the end of the day
There are cheaper good eye pencils on the market but the color is just gorgeous, i think it will be quite difficult to find the match. So will I repurchase? Yes, please!

Amazing colour, long-lasting and I like the texture.

Eye Shadow -MAC - Chilled on Ice (Cham-pale Collection)

on 11/25/2015 6:36:00 AM


This is a completely gorgeous colour! When dropping a friend off at the airport, it suddenly crossed her mind that she could pick up some duty free MAC for me! So as she was waiting to board, I was hurriedly looking up the MAC site on my phone - going to the paint pot section, 'Chilled on Ice' was the first paint pot to come up. A quick read of the description and it seemed about right, so I told her what I wanted and she was on her way. On the drive home I wondered if Chilled on Ice was the right choice - I'm normally a matte girl through and through, and I wasn't sure if the gold would work for me on my very fair skin. But a month later when my friend retuned from her trip (and I had all but forgotten about my MAC order) she gave me my Chilled on Ice! And I have not looked back. This colour is utterly gorgeous - the prettiest soft gold with a lovely warm rose tone through it. Smooth and creamy, easy to apply to the lid with a brush or your finger. Completely beautiful - a lovely amount of glitter to make it appropriate for daytime - even office - wear. A quick thicker application will make it the perfect evening glam. It's beautiful, my NW15 skin tone picks up the rose gold tones in this beautifully. Chilled on Ice has introduced me to a world outside matte! I love this shade and could not recommend it more.

Makeup Brushes -MAC - Make It Perfect Brush Kit (Glitter & Ice 2011)


Ok so can anyone please help me i bought off line and read up on all the fake brushes and how to tell but with this set its a glittery clear plastic handle and there are so many differences it did not have the bar code on every plastic sleeve is it supposed to or did it for your set???? The mac ###se seems to be engraved and they did say made in China on the outer plastic wrap but not on brushes and i got freaked but they say they do make the special edition travel sizes in China they look exaxtly like the real mineralize ones and there is no bad odor and the brushes are super soft but I'm just worried I got a fake set... I also bought a 7pc hello kitty mac set and i read the only hello kitty mac set they made was a 3 pc and that there are tons of fake the girl was honest said she got off eBay that she had all good reviews but the article or whatever I read was in 2013 so was there a new set made after July 2013? Can anyone please help me? I also bought a studio fix powder nw20 accidently bought nc20 and she said oh I have nw20 I checked her ratings and talked to one of the girls that bought from her and looked at her pics and it's for sure for sure fake I didn't even know people could do stuff like this I called the girl who continues to tell me her products are 100% authentic a f####n liar and apologized for my language she still continues to say it's real and I haven't got it yet but I'm not stupid I can understand if people don't know it's real but wow come on this is ridiculous
100 bucks down the drain (hopefully not all)
Please help meeee!

Moisturizers -MAC - Studio Moisture Cream

on 11/24/2015 6:01:00 PM


Pretty packaging. Lasts years, there's a lot of product in the tub. a very average moisturiser, you'd be better of getting a cheap drugstore one as it would work just as well as this. I purchased this cream when I had acne and awfully dry skin, at the time it was useless. Now that my skin is clear and not as dry it works reasonably but it's nothing amazing. I used to find it too greasy and uncomfortable on my skin but since my skin has got better I quite like how it feels on my skin. Overall I won't be purchasing this again, it's very mediocre and should really only be worth a fiver or less for what it is.

Eye Shadow -MAC - Satin - Soba

on 11/24/2015 5:42:00 PM


Soba is a beautiful caramel colour which complements my brown eyes. I find that I can wear this one on its own or blended with other colours such as Cork or Saddle in the crease. As a Satin, I find it works well on my mature lids. It's subtle but buildable with no fallout. I find it pigmented and wonderfully buttery. I would call it a sophisticated colour, which I find lasts well with a lid primer. I'm very happy to have this colour in my palette and use it regularly.
