Lipstick -MAC - Velvet Teddy

I heard so much raving over this shade - went to MAC and blind bought it as a set with a liner for $34CAD. I was eager to try it, but sadly it comes off as extremely brown on me. I am unsure if it was just the batch that I picked up but this comes off on me as a muddy brown that is not flattering. I ended up giving it to my mother.

Liquid -MAC - Face and Body Foundation

I like the idea of this foundation more than the actual product. The packaging is great-so much easier than opening up a bottle. I'm NC10-15 and N1 is my best match-C1 is a little too green for me. I do wish this foundation came in more colors-the lightest and darkest color spectrum could be better. I need the F&B in White for an exact match as N1 is still a bit too dark,. I've applied this with my fingers all over my face. You can go back and build up the coverage. Tapping the product between your fingers, or putting some in a petri dish for an hour or two before you use it will increase the coverage. I think it's just a bit too sheer for me, even when built up. I am combination to oily and I always feel like this doesn't dry down, and I end up putting a powder foundation over it for my coverage, and then it looks nothing like the original foundation. I like it better when mixing it with other foundations like Studio Fix Fluid to sheer them out. I would purchase it again, as I feel like it's a staple foundation to have, but I do plan on purchasing the White to see if that makes a difference for me. I do think that if you have drier skin, you will love this foundation as it gives a very healthy, glowing natural look.

Blush -MAC - Matte Blush - Desert Rose

The shade Desert Rose didn't work for me at all. A perfect dupe for having rosacea, or maybe a fever. Returned.

Lipstick -MAC - Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

Another failed MAC product for me. I got the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Look Out, a matte peachy pink nude shade. The color on the box (anniversary sale kit) made the shade appear a peachy YLBB shade. On my nc30 light olive complexion, the color is showed up a beigey I look dead color. Not flattering at all. I prefer my nudes to have more color to them. The formula itself was okay. Lasted a good six hours until I ate. Was as drying as any matte color. I prefer stila and kat von d for matte longwearing lippies. This retails for $21 and I would pass.


Eyeliner -MAC - Modern Twist Kajal Liner

on 8/13/2017 9:16:00 AM

I used to be a huge fan of MAC but the constant release of limited edition collections made me quit this brand cold turkey. Recently I've been drawn back by a few items. These eyeliners were one of them. I had all the eye kohls, powerpoints, and pearlglides. None of them are HG products anymore because of the release of so many more longwearing eyeliners.

These are supposed to be longwearing, pigmented, waterproof and great for inner rims. Well it's none of those things. It smudges, it runs and it's not waterproof. Although the black walnut was a nicely pigmented dark true black, it gave me raccoon eyes. shoreline was a nice grey that was not pigmented at all. I love the automatic pencil, but this product is subpar. Not worth the $17.50.

Eyes -MAC - Brow pencil in Fawn

on 8/13/2017 8:16:00 AM

I'm sorry to say i really hate it. Why;

-Its very hard to get some colour of
-The pointy tip is so fine and hard is hurts your skin
-I get a patchy look
-It does not last during the day
-The system to turn the pencil up is very annoying
-Its expensive

Pro: The color is right, for ash blond brows.

Eyeliner -MAC - Pearlglide - Black Swan

I usually like all of the Mac eyeliner pencils, but not this one. It went on really smoothly. The color is very rich. As soon as I blink, the eyeliner is not only on my eyelid, it's also below my brow bone making it look like I have a black eye. I will not be buying this again.

Liquid -MAC - Face and Body Foundation - White

This is such a problem solver for me. Before I bought this I used to have a bunch of foundations and tinted moisturizers that I could not wear because they were way too dark. Then it was actually The Body Shop that woke me up from my stupidity when they came out with their Shade Adjusting Drops. However I did not want to try The Shade Adjusting drops becuase I red that they were not that pigmented. I went on and searched for another white foundation and decided to go for the MAC one. There is only one thing I dont like about this product and it is the stickiness that stays on the skin all day. However I always get compliments of my skin when I wear this mixed into my (way too dark on its own) Dior tinted moisturizer. Now I can go on and grab those expensive foundations and tinted moisturizers from sale baskets even if they are way too dark for me because I will just adjust them as long as they are not too pink toned. Lovely. This product is a money saver for me and a basic workhorse in my collection. Absolutely recommend this for someone with same kind of problems as me.

Blush -MAC - Studio Quiktrik Stick

I love MAC quiktrik sticks and cant believe it was not reviewed yet. I have been waiting MAC to come up with the cream blush in a stick formula becuase I really hate the way cream blushes in pan formula always get so dirty and disgusting. I think they are pricey but I ended up buying 3 of them! I have the one from Diane Kendal collection with a taupe brown shade and a white shade and this is my favourite of them all. The white is the perfect highlighter for my pale skin and the taupe works as a sunkissed blush. I dont really use it as a contour. I also got Miss Cupcake/Tomato which I use both colors like blushes, one of them being a bright coral and another more sheer and shimmery peach shade. And lastly A Latte Sheen/SemiSweet which are a shimmery golden brown and a darker warm brown. These I use more for sunkissed look. These 2 are permanent. However I am not hearing much about these so I suspect there really is not much love for them out there so I am afraid that MAC will only carry these for a short time. I wish it wasnt so. One minus is that atleast one of these has broken inside the stick. However it does not bother me much as I can still keep using it. The finish is always glowy and non sticky. Compared to Nars multiples the texture is different and more creamy with quiktrik. I really did not like the multiples but I love these, because these also stay on longer and I dont get the feeling that there is some moveable layer of siliconey color on top of my skin that comes off very easily. These are really not sticky at all.
