Liquid -MAC - Face and Body Foundation

I totally get why many rave about this foundation. It really does look very natural and dries to a soft radiant finish. However, I feel like I have to use so much just to get it to cover up my redness that it' feels like I'm wasting product. Basically, it seems like this foundation has to little pigment. There are other products with a similar finish and more pigment that would allow me to achieve the coverage I need but with half the amount of product. So, I think this just isn't for me.


Liquid -MAC - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

I really like this foundation and would definitely repurchase if my current runs out....which won't be for a while since I have a few other foundations I am currently using.

I think this is reasonably priced, at (I think) £22.00 in the UK and for the amount you get too, is worth the price. I also think there's a variety of colour options which is always quite good as you can either go a shade lighter or darker depending on season. This has been my go to foundation for the longest time and contrary to most reviews, have not broken out at all due to using this. I apply this foundation using Real Techniques buffing brush or the Elf studio powder brush and it glides on like a dream. I get full coverage from just one coat of this but that's probably also due to using a corrector and concealer underneath which cover most of my acne scars. My foundation tends to last all day and doesn't oxidise......but could also be as a result of setting sprays! I'm an NW45 in this for reference and my skin is combination that is prone to acne!

Overall, I would repurchase!

Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Skin

I received a deluxe sample of this with a Mac order and I'm very pleased with this product. It's not greasy or matte. I wear Mac face & body over this and I feel like it keeps it in place longer than some of my other primers. It appears to have little micro-shimmers in the product, but there is absolutely zero shimmer on the face. It absorbs into my skin nicely and I really like this product. I would use this when I'm not wanting a glowy base.

Lip Gloss -MAC - Nymphette lipglass

The lipglosses are not worth the money I found a lipgloss by milani that is the exact same color and thicker I bought a few from mac in the past but wouldn't waste my money again and the nyc lipglosses last longer than mac.

Blush -MAC - Sheertone blush in Tenderling

I usually do not spend this much on blush but I've heard really great things from beauty bloggers so I decided to try it. This is my go to blush. It's the only one I wear every single day and it's very buildable if your looking for a more dramatic look for the night. I have pale skin that does tan in the summer and it works very well with either skin tone. I've had it for over a year now and just hit pan. Once it is out I will certainly rebuy! Totally worth the investment


Eye Shadow -MAC - Eye Shadow

I like Mac eyeshadow because of the wide variety of colors. I have a difficult time finding eyeshadow colors that do my green/hazel eyes justice. I also have a hard time finding a decent variety of matte colors in most brands. I have a ton of shimmery eye shadows but I feel like at my age I really don't need to be so shimmery al the time. I like a nice matte color and maybe just a little shimmer to the highlight color. Mac has several matte shades that work for me. I like that their refill pans are only $6 and have about the same amount in them as the ones that cost $16. Most of the colors seem to blend well. A few take some layering while others are very pigmented. Overall I'd say their very good quality. I've been using them since the 90's. I'm a little mad about them discontinuing brown script though.

Mascara -MAC - In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash

I think it is an ok mascara overall. I find that it is quite good for volume but it is too lengthening for me i.e. if I put two coats on my eyes look very dramatic. So to me it is a bit over the top for day time wear but maybe that is because my lashes are already long and I end up with too much 'drama' with this mascara if I layer it.
The mascara is very wet, so I need to be careful and wait for it to dry. What I do is, I make sure to brush the excess of the wand off on paper tissue so that I don't have too much product and this actually does the trick. The finish is glossy and it doesn't end up looking dry after a few hours, which is nice about this mascara.
For me this mascara is not ideal for day time wear ( I prefer Lancome Hypnose my HG) but it's good for going out in the evening or when I want a dramatic look.


Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

Purchased this pretty little thing some weeks back and have been using it daily and with a very sparing hand at that. Interested to see how it builds for a razzle dazzle night on the town but so far enjoy the subtle glow it has been bringing to my face, definitely makes my 37 yeared self feel younger. I've been taking a small blush brush and applying very lightly to the general high points of my face (with little precision might I add) and by the end of the day I can still notice on my skin so would like to add it has good staying power.


Liquid -MAC - Mineralize Moisture SPF 15

Sigh... this product isn't bad, but it is another chapter in the saga of foundations that don't match my very fair skin. So I can't help but be disappointed a little.

I have dry patches and very fair skin. I like sheer coverage with a dewy finish. So when I popped into Mac and they recommended this to me, I was psyched. The sales associate picked out the shade NW13, which looked pale enough!...until she put it on my face. Needless to say, it is not a match, and is too dark on my skin. But it's soooo close, and that makes it even more disappointing for me.

This foundation isn't bad by any means, and I CAN make it work if I add a little white foundation to it. It is otherwise everything I ever wanted, including the pink undertone that I can't seem to find in any other brands. Two pumps covers my entire face. It has a lovely dewy finish and feels weightless on my skin. It definitely lasts all day when I set it with a powder and setting spray, and it doesn't oxidize much, which is excellent too.

It didn't match me, but NW13 (and by extension, NC13) is a nice pale shade. Other pale people might have better luck than me. I will repurchase if I don't find anything that matches me better.


Lipstick -MAC - Sweet & Sour

This is my very first mac lipstick, got this after I saw it on a youtuber and it looks really nice on her. I got this 2 years ago I think when MAC lipstick is still SGD29. I see that it has gone up to SGD31, not sure why they keep increasing prices yearly.

Anyway I was attracted to this pretty light peach orangey tone as I wanted the Korean pastel lip look. I think its not one of the hot selling colours as there are very few reviews for this shade.

I find this formula to be slightly towards the dry side and it does emphasize flakes but not as severe for the lip lines. It will suit fair skin but not for dark skin tones. It does not make you look pale and sick due to its light tone. Lasting power not great as like most lipsticks, I had a cake and there is a light shade left. Definitely requires re touch.

I think I should try again with a lip balm next time. Recommend this tone if you are going for a korean spring look.
