Fragrances -MAC - Velvet Teddy Shadescents

on 1/13/2017 10:14:00 PM

According to MAC, the notes are ginger zest, bergamot, tobacco flower, vanilla orchid, golden mimosa, wild honey, papyrus, liquid musk, and tonka. On me, it reminded me of a tobacco woody scent and I believe it could be passed as an unisex scent. I was hoping for something close to MAC's long discontinued MV2. I will not purchase.

Lip Gloss -MAC - Sugarrimmed Dazzleglass

I usually love dazzleglasses, but this shade was a letdown for me. The blue sparkle was overpowering and took away from the glass like shine. I will not repurchase.


Moisturizers -MAC - Strobe Cream

i'm on my second bottle of this stuff, can I just point out the fact that it took me over a year to get through the first one, which is amazing considering how much i've used of it. I love dewy skin, and using this as a base, and even mixing it in with my foundation gives me that result. It also provides a really blend-able base for whatever foundation you're using as it just glides on perfectly. And a wee bit goes a long way, which is a definite pro.

The only thing i'd say with this strobe cream is that if you want to use this as a highlighter on top of your foundation, I would not recommend, as it can smudge your foundation and leave a mark, which is difficult to cover, and it isn't as pigmented as me personally would look for in an individual highlighter. Absolutely recommend for a base or foundation mixer.


Eye Shadow -MAC - Mellow Moderns Eyeshadow Palette

on 1/13/2017 12:09:00 PM

I like the palette well enough, it introduced me to soft brown, a beautiful pink-toned brown shade that's perfection for my crease. Carbon is useful and the frosts / shimmers are okay. I guess I am ok with MAC mattes, but the rest o them are just that; just okay. Some of them are mediocre; the purples don't even exist. Pointless. I work them up on primer, nothing, I go in with a swipe of Urban Decay and finally I see some color... very disappoint. I use it, but will not repurchase, and this + the warm 15 that I bought last year are it for me and MAC shadows. I'm pretty much over MAC except for their blushes.


Eye Shadow -MAC - Veluxe - Beauty Marked

It's actually a black matte with finely milled purple glitter, and it's deceiving because it doesn't look like that in the pan. It has relatively poor pigmentation and applies patchy. Reviews below describe it as 'gritty' and I have to agree. This has glitter fall out. There is virtually no glitter seen on the lid, rather a sheer, patchy wash of black with an occasional sparkle.

I did a side by side comparison with UD's Blackheart (from Naked 3) and they are virtually identical in color. However, UD has better pigmentation, doesn't apply patchy and is easier to blend. I recommend for the lids (in a smoky eye) to use UD instead.

Since I have this product anyway, I currently use Mac's Beauty Marked on top of an eyeliner to give it an added depth and a tiny bit of sparkle. Once it is on, it stays put.

Crème -MAC - Full Coverage Foundation

I gave it 4 stars on packaging because i wish there was a mirror. Other than that this is an amazing all in one product. You just have to make sure you know how to apply it. You can use it as a sheer coverage, or you can build it to full very easily and use as a concealer. First you will want to make sure you exfoliate and moisturize well. I use a flat buffing brush. I dampen the brush first and lightly grab a little foundation with it and pat it on in downward strokes till i need grab a little more. a little goes a long way. Than you can use a concealer brush or fingers to press on areas you need to conceal more. It goes on flawlessly. Looks like natural skin. The shade nc15 fits my pale nuetral skin perfectly!! It is very hard as a pale girl to find shades that are not orangy or dirty. and this shade is perfect. It looks darker in the pan that it does when you apply it. It covers my redness around my nose lovely and my spider veins under my one eye. I love it!


Lipstick -MAC - LLAP (Live Long and Prosper)

on 1/12/2017 12:41:00 PM

LLAP is from MAC's 2016 Star Trek Collection that celebrates the series' 50th anniversary. Limited Edition, cool-looking packaging, everything about it just screams "collectible".

But the shade itself (metallic rosy beige, MAC classifies this as a Frost) looks a little too out-there and extreme on me. I really can't pull it off. From looking at online swatches I thought this would be a wearable neutral. But it's actually a lot more dramatic-looking in person and not what I was looking for.

Nice formula though. It feels very creamy and smooth on the lips and also wears pretty well.

Lipstick is such a ymmv product in general, and this shade would probably look very nice on the right person. But I wouldn't buy it again.


Eyeliner -MAC - Pro longwear eyeliner strong willed

on 1/12/2017 8:51:00 AM

My eyelids hurt right now. This eyeliner pencil is super dry, and I bought it just two months ago. I applied it after having warmed it in my pocket for twenty minutes prior to application and it was still super rough on my lids. Did try the lighter trick, but it made the formula bad - it smudged all over within half an hour. If you can stand the pain of application it lasts a decent 6 hours, but I'm going to throw this very expensive eyeliner pencil in the trash, it's not worth the pain. It's 25 dollars here in Denmark.

It was my first MAC lipstick ever, and it is a great one! Loved it very much, will probably repurchase in the future! Also lustre finish is my favorite from all of them, so comfortable on the lips. The color is great, darker kind of nude.
