Lipstick -MAC - Lustre Lipstick in Spice It Up

If you have olive skin and are looking for a foolproof red that works for all occasions, then this is your shade. I like the way it looks in the tube, but it's even better on (I'm a medium olive-toned Latina - about NC 40/42). The lustre finish is perfect as well, and the shade pairs nicely with MAC Spice or any other nude liner. Along with Twig, this is one of my HG everyday picks.


Lipstick -MAC - Cremesheen - On Hold

I swatched this shade on my hand first and it was so lovely that I bought it without trying it on my lips - On Hold is difficult to describe. It's a cremesheen that looks like a medium pinkish red in the tube but that leans more towards coral on my pigmented lips (I'm about an NC 40/42 with medium olive skin). The finish is very pretty, as it's a subtle shimmer. While it won't have the staying power of some of MAC's other formulas, this is comfortable to wear and as already stated the color is a pretty shade suitable for work or the weekend.

Eye Shadow -MAC - Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Sweet Heat (2015)

This is the eyeshadow I've been missing my entire life. I wear this as an all over color or just as a lid color with something else in the crease and outer v. I spray my brush with studio fix first. This shadow looks best and lasts forever when applied with a wet brush. I haven't tried with water, but studio fix on the brush makes it last 12 hours for sure! No primer necessary. My eyelids are pale so the color shows up and brightens. I imagine this would look good on a wide range of skin tones, though.

Lipstick -MAC - Please Me

Let me begin by saying I normally dislike matte lipsticks because my lips are dry. This lipstick doesn't dry my lips out though. Please ME is a flattering shade for me. I have light skin with neutral to slightly warm undertones. I pair this with the long wear liner in In Anticipation and it's perfect for everyday work look.

Makeup Brushes -MAC - #217 Blending

This brush is very good and deserves its cult status for the most part...but there are a lot of dupes out there that cost less. It's great for crease work and blends wonderfully. It is better than my fav dupe the Morphe M433.

I do have a soft spot for this brush but truthfully the Morphe M433 is close and less than 1/4 the price.


Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Painterly

I keep coming back to this as an eye primer. It cover the redness on my lids and seems to make my shadows blend better and last longer. Either way it's a great base.


Lipstick -MAC - Blankety

For some reason this doesn't go on opaque on me like the rest of the amplified finish lipsticks.
It is sheer, it moves around. Doesn't stay on the lips. Quality is not any better than drugstore lipsticks.

Lipstick -MAC - Film Noir

foto

I love the color instantly after the SA showed Film Noir to me. It's a dark brown, which would look overwhelming in the tube but less so on the lips. Its application is smooth enough (be sure to wear lip balm before applying), not too patchy on my lips, and it tends to not smear so much. I love to pair it with any dark red or purple lip pencils to give more definition to the lips. It would wear off with a couple drinks, though..

Lipstick -MAC - Matte - Sin

foto

I fell in love with Sin the first time I saw it online. I'm really into dark red/burgundy and I'm not missing on this one. It's a very good lipstick with intense color payoff and decent longevity. The only downside of this lipstick is that it tends to be harder to apply than other MAC lipsticks I own (perhaps because it's the only Matte version I have). Yet with a couple layers of lipbalm, you'll be good.
I personally love Sin's sister, Dark Side, better, but everyone's got a choice :)

Lipstick -MAC - Dark Side

foto

My favorite shade of MAC lipsticks!
I've never been into nude, corals, purples, etc but dark red/burgundy is my go-to color. I also own Sin (Matte), which is very close to Dark Side (Amplified). I prefer the finish that Dark Side offers compared to Sin, because it gives off healthy shine without being too shiny. The application is smooth and it doesn't smear easily. It does transfer before it dries (which usually the case in my life), but once it sets, you need a couple good drinks and food to wash it off completely.
I would definitely do anything to get my hands on 2nd tube of Dark Side once mine is run out.
