Lipstick -MAC - Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour


As much as I love MAC and wanted to love these cuties I could not fall in love with them. The colors are awesome but the pay off when applied is not. As a Makeup Artist I have to apply the product with a brush to avoid cross contamination. What I do is I put a bit of product on my palette and I dip my brush. By themselves they do not do the job. I use them to fill in spots. for example I will apply lip liner first, then lipstick and on top the liquid lipstick. I know there are many steps but as a makeup artist I have to ensure my client will get a beautiful color pay off and the product will remain on the lips for several hours. By themselves they are not worth it. Very embarrassing coming from MAC, they joined the bandwagon late and still they were not able to deliver a descent product that can be independent.

Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium

on 6/21/2016 12:26:00 PM


Overall, I'm really please with this product. It has a light feel and doesn't settle in my pores or look cakey. My routine is as follows: MAC face and body foundation, blush, MAC mineralize powder, and then a highlighter on my cheekbones for a nice, dewy look. The powder doesn't last as long as others, but works well. The magnetized container is ok, although a little hard to open.

Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50

I feel I should preface this with normally I am a fan of pretty much all things MAC but this, this was just not good.

I bought this twice in my MAC lifetime. The first time I bought it the product was amazing! It went on like a dream, my foundation sat really well and it lasted forever.

When I was finally out of the package I went to MAC to buy another one, and I'm not sure if they changed the formula or what happened but this new package was legitimately like really runny sunscreen on my face and it was disgusting. I was so upset with myself for buying it.

The original package was amazing but the second was just not, and I emptied it and returned it for the Back 2 MAC program. I was really, really unhappy with it. It made my skin look oily, when normally I don't have oily skin. It left a horrible smell on my skin even with foundation and all other make up on. It just wasn't good at all. It was just really oily and runny on my skin, and it made my foundation run/transfer when normally that doesn't happen to me. I just overall was not happy with the new tube I bought

If you are impressed with this product, though, and will continue buying it here's a tip: when you buy it, ask for about 5 or 6 sample containers. Usually MAC SA's are really nice and they will give them to you. When you get home, put this tube into those containers. You will notice, if you've bought this, that it's hard to get the last bits out due to packaging so what is a life saver for me was that I cut off the top of the tube and used a butter knife, or similar, to scrape it out and put it into the sample jars. This way I actually used all of the product and it last much longer. I would say I got at least another 1/3 by cutting off the top and scraping it into jars. PLUS: it still counts for Back 2 MAC this way, just in case you're wondering.

Liquid -MAC - Pro Longwear Foundation

My qualms are not with the coverage- that was the only thing I liked about this product. Broke me out with cystic acne! (and I DO NOT have acne prone skin) If that had not been an issue I would've loved this foundation. Buyer beware!

Brows -MAC - Eyebrows Crayon (Stud)

Been using this for last two years. Medium skin tone here and this matches perfectly. I use very sparingly with a brush and a little goes a long way. Nothing but excellent things to say about this!

Eye Shadow -MAC - Pigment in Vanilla

After a bunch of reviews on this, I decided to give it a good go and I was happy that I did. The gold makes my cheekbones really stand out and highlights my facial structure which I like. Makes my eyes pop as well. I will be rebuying this.

Mascara -MAC - Zoom lash

on 6/20/2016 1:06:00 PM


Dont like this too much. lashes got longer but it really irritated my eyes and gave it a bad look. Smudges very easily. My lashes by nature are about medium size. They are very thin so making tem look thicker works well and gives it a goregeous look.

Lip Gloss -MAC - Lipglass in Prrr

on 6/20/2016 1:03:00 PM


High shine gloass alert :) Applies pretty evenlty but doesn't show off the lip lines like I would like so I gave it a 4. Use a slightly darker tone for those lips to really pop on top of using this.

Lipstick -MAC - Cremesheen - Fanfare

on 6/20/2016 8:41:00 AM


This is my favorite pink MAC lipstick that they make. It is a yellow based pink without any blue, purple, nor brown undertones. This lipstick can we worn alone or with many different makeup looks. This color compliments many looks and never contrasts your makeup. It's not too light, not too dark, not too nude, and not too bright. I like the light reflective qualities, and has better staying power than a gloss or the luster formulas while still being creamy.
I wear medium plus MAC BB cream, and my skin has olive undertones.
The perfect pink.

Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Painterly

This color or the Bare Study (depends on your skin color) is a pretty nice base for eyeshadow, but you can also use it alone for a nude look. This base makes sure that your eyeshadow stays fix for 8h (no joke) I allways use it if a want to create smokey eyes.
