Lip Liners -MAC - velvetease lip pencil

on 10/5/2017 7:57:00 AM

This lip pencil is phenomenal - I don't think it gets the recognition it deserves!

I got this as part of a 2 for 1 offer on National Lipstick Day in the shade Anything Goes. I went there to buy Craving, a plummy shade, but this was the real winner.

First of all, I love the bright pinky red colour (a bit pinkier than the Red Necessity in the Huggable line). The lip pencil is thin enough to define the outline with precision but thick enough to go on smoothly and quickly. Coverage and pigmentation are very good. It is matte and weirdly enough, not as dry as I expected.

The best part is that it stays on for ages. There is always some colour left after lunch, although I do reapply it then. But in general it is one of the most long-wearing lipsticks I own.

It is a pity that no other shade appeals, as I would happily buy more.

Moisturizers -MAC - Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel Moisturizer

My skin loves this product, wish I could give this 20 lippies! This right here is exactly what I have been looking for when prepping my face for makeup... I've only had it for a few days, and used it 3 times before applying makeup, and it's just so amazing... I had a full face done at MAC, and this was used, with Fix + mist on top, then MAC water weight foundation... I have never loved MY skin as much as I have since doing this routine. I'm 47, combo skin, no acne or scars, no crazy wrinkles yet, and this didn't emphasize anything, or look too greasy or dewy, it was perfection..the makeup artist guy set my face lightly with MAC "next to nothing" pressed powder, using a brush instead of the puff, I bought that compact too and it's just amazing too... I will forever buy this as long as it's around.❤

Concealers -MAC - Select Moisturecover

I wanted a natural looking concealor with medium coverage for under the eyes, possible blemishes. I wanted a moisturizing concealor that wouldn’t cause crepeyness under the eyes. I tried several, but this is my favorite and I will be repurchasing when I run out.
The formula is a medium consistency, much thinner than shape tape. Maybe similar to Maybelline fit me. I use this mostly under my eyes and it’s very natural. It doesn’t cause dryness or crepey skin (pro longwear was the worst thing to ever touch my eyes!). It just looks nice and natural. It’s a medium to sheer coverage. I really don’t have dark circles. I just like a little brightness and it makes my makeup look more finished. If you have dark circles, this is not for you.
Shades. This is not a concealor in which you can get a reverse raccoon shade. I made them try four different shades on me. They kept putting me in really yellow shades. It was irritating. I ended up with NW15 and it’s the darkest concealer I own. NW10 was just a weird shade that didn’t seem to fit the line. But, the shade I got works just fine.
Packaging. I love the doe foot wand for under the eyes. Nice and user friendly and I don’t intend to have this long enough to get gross as I use it almost every day.
Price. Totally reasonable, especially now that MAC does 25% off on occasion.
My previous HG was NARS radiant creamy concealer. This one is thinner, lighter coverage, and more moisturizing/less drying. I still love the NARS but I’ve been going with lighter foundations and it was too much coverage to go with those. And it was just a little drying. Currently for my needs, this MAC one is perfect. I currently use my shape tape on blemishes and on full coverage days under my eyes. Otherwise, I use this every day.

Lipstick -MAC - Velvet Teddy

I bought this color because I saw it on a woman on the MAC website. It looked gorgeous on her, but on me it's not even there. It takes a few good swipes to get the lipstick to glide on the lips- it's not creamy at all. I also had to do many swipes to get it to show up. If you have a medium, warm, and/or darker skintone, I would not recommend this. Maybe in the center of the lips, with a darker color or not, for an ombre effect. The only reason I'm giving 2 lippies is because it was my first MAC lipstick, I didn't test out longevity and I got it during Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty Sale (glad I didn't buy it at full price). Other than that, ISSA NO.

Lipstick -MAC - Russian Red

foto

I'm not much of a red lipstick person but this was a Ulta beauty steal, and if I was going to get a high end lipstick this had to be it. It's a very neutral leaning red, with the classic feel. It's one of the safer red's for those who adore the nude lipstick. I would say it reminds me of the classy reds they use to wear back in the 50's. The formula stays put so it's wise to take your time putting this on or grab your lip brush. For me this formula did not travel on my lip line, and last a pretty long time. I probably won't repurchase because I may only reach for it on occasion.


Blush -MAC - Mineralize Blush - Warm Soul

This was recommended to me by the girl at Ulta..I thought there's no way this would look good on my mature skin, as it seemed so shiny and frosty in the pan, and I find that even though I'm Spanish and Italian, my skin tone is neutral, and I find that mauvy shades flatter me more..but this shade/formula is fabulous! Adds such a warmth and gorgeous sheen to my neutral nw25 skin...I was a MAC maniac in the late 90's/early 2000's, but ventured off into other brands, so glad I have started buying things from them again, have not been disappointed with any of the 10+ products I've bought recently.

Bought several MAC lipsticks and glosses in the last few weeks, and really have been loving this perfect nude shade. It's lighter than I would normally wear, and looks alot lighter in the tube, but on, it's perfect..love the shade, cream finish, and overall wear time...will definitely purchase again.

Lipstick -MAC - Matte - Kinda Sexy

I adore this color, pretty close to my natural lips, which makes it my ideal nude. I have light brown/amber eyes and medium skin tone. It feels light on the lips, the color lasts a long time for a non liquid lipstick, def a rebuy for me
