Primer/ Corrector -MAC -Prep + Prime Natural Radiance

on 4/22/2018 8:59:00 PM

I bought this based on its brand, I love MAC so much for its makeupsss but this thing doesn't suit me well. I bought yellow since I have yellow undertone. As per packaging it says will give radiance but i dont see any radiance after apply this primer. I have combo skin and i also my makeup doesn't stay all day with this primer. I still love my farsali more than this.

I hate that this product doesn’t come with a pump. Why should We have to buy a pump? Am I missing something? But anyways, i feel like this is medium coverage which is ok.. but the amount I have to apply to cover my hyper pigmentation is ridiculous. Shame, because you actually do get a lot of product in this bottle. Works better with a brush. It also separates after a few hours (mostly t zone) no matter what I use with it so I can’t say it lasts that long.


Lipstick -MAC -Huggable Lipcolour - Seoul-ful

I bought this lipstick because the color reminded me so much of my favorite Urban Decay lipstick in Sheer Streak. I wore that UD lippie until it wore down to the plastic cartridge and had to be scooped out with a lip brush to be applied. Sadly, where I live there is no UD makeup, so when I saw this Seoul-ful lippie I just grabbed it without knowing much about this MAC line. It is rather similar to UD, but a lot more moisturizing, less waxy, and not as pigmented. I much prefer the UD one, but beggars can`t be choosers. In any case, this Huggable Lipcolour is nice enough, a bit sheer, but still pigmented enough not to qualify as just a balm. Although it`s moisturizing, it can sometimes stick and crumb up in patches if your lips are not in the best condition. It`s a lovely, no fuss color for spring/summer. I would repurchase again, but only if I could find it on sale somewhere, because Japanese cosmetics have loads of good pink lipsticks with different finishes at more reasonable price points.

Under rated compared to all the hype other concealers get. I tried so many concealers and I always come back to this one. IF you have dark circles then this is the one for you. Super coverage and hides anything.

great coverage for dark circles but it will crease a lot if you dont moisturize undereyes before applying this concealer. I rub in a drop of almond oil underneath and blend in the concealer with makeup sponge. Then i set it with translucent powder.

Eyeliner -MAC -Modern Twist Kajal Liner

I am the sort of person who prefers to emphasize one thing on my face at a time-I either wear a strong lip color and minimal eye, or a strong eye and a nude or light lip. Even on those strong eye days, though, I prefer to tightline or to line my waterline, so I can make my eyes stand out without looking like I just stepped out of an 80s time warp. So....I searched for a liner that had plenty of staying power specifically for the waterline, and my searches kept coming up with this. I bought two colors, a dark blue called Ocean Liner, and a dark gray called Shoreline. I am very pleased with the results, overall-they are both good, creamy liners that go on without any tugging, and give me a good dark color line-I have used the Tarte Emphaseyes liners in the past, and these are actually a little better in terms of consistency-the Tarte tends towards dryness, and so far neither of the MAC liners have. The Ocean Liner blue actually appears to have better staying power-the gray Shoreline smudged a bit under my eyes, but the blue stays and stays-actually is a little difficult to completely remove as it works its way down among my lashes-and I don't see the smudging with the blue as I did with the gray. I refreshed it once during the day, but just a touchup. (I am looking forward to trying this at the height of summer, to see how well it does-stay tuned for an update in the future!) No tears or irritation to my eyes. I think I would buy the Ocean Liner blue again, but I might pass on the Shoreline gray. I will be trying some other colors, too-this is not terribly expensive eyeliner-I believe it is in the $18-$25 range, but I got mine at a discount, so I paid less-it's worthwhile to check out a variety of venues to find the best price, as this is widely available. My only quibble is that this liner twists up as you use it, and there really isn't a good way to keep a sharp point on the tiny tip-I wish they came with sharpeners on the back end! All in all, a very good product, and one that I will repurchase!

Liquid -MAC -Next to Nothing Face Colour

foto

I recived a generous sample of this. The MAC artist decided to try Medium/ or Medium Plus on me. For reference I am NC41 in studio fix powder, and in the summer NC42 (end of summer) I am a Medium Deep Golden Shade.
Other colors I wear : Bobbi Brown stick foundation between shade 4.0 and 4.2 and on my forehead 4.5-4.75 My forehead is naturally darker then the rest of my face. I also wear Cover Fx in shade golden 40+
So today I tried the Medium and the shade is seems quite natural. I feel like this is almost the Glossier version for Women of color. I have glossier skin tint in Medium and it reminds me of that perhaps with a little more pigment. I find that this is great for a casual look or a very natural daytime look. I think (and I have dry skin) that it needs to be set w/ a powder because of the slip it has.
One option you might consider instead of purchasing this is using the MAC face and body foundation (a very watery natural foundation) and mix it with a bit of luminance. For example I often mix my foundations with the soap and body blurring luminzer or the benefit pink liquid luminzer. not a lot - just a small drop or two.I could see myself using this as a primer or mixing it in with a foundation or using it in combination with my BB stick foundation.
So far it looks very nice. I think if you have sigifanct discoloration or very deep under eye circles you will need to spot correct those issues. I also have sensetive skin that is easily irrated. So I find applying this with my fingers and then just blending it in and setting it with a mildly damp beauty blender prevents some of the piling people complained about while blending it in. If you have very oily skin you will definitely need a strong primer and setting powder to make this work and probably touch up with powder through out/or maybe just forgo this one because I don't think its geared toward those skin types. But I have pretty dry skin that is also mildly senstive (just a little bit shiny in the t-zone)
I feel like this would be absorbed by a beauty blender similar to the way glossier skin tint could be. Over all it just creates a luminous soft coverage. I think that would be good for a natural pulled togather day look if you are having fatigued skin (for me working till 1 am and then returning 730 am at the hospital but still having to try and look pulled togather and polished but exhausted as heck) I will purchase but I will need to get color matched for the powder.

This liner would have been my HG if it wasn't for the fact that it contains micro glitter. I will not purchase.

I got the chance to try this on at Nordstrom today and I was a bit disappointed. It the same concept as the regular mist along with micro-glitter. I was hoping for something similar to the Tatcha mist. I will not purchase.

This is the perfect foundation if, like me, you're looking for a natural-looking foundation that's light but buildable. It smoothens out your skin for that no-make-up look. It's very lightweight - perfect for warm, humid climates. It's great for everyday wear and holds up fairly well to my usual 12-hour days. Two thumbs up!

My fave blush! looks stunning on all complexions. Doesn't fade! I love the warm/orangey skin look and this is the perfect combo with the Anastasia rosewood bronzer!

Liquid -MAC -Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

One of my go-to foundations. Never looks cakey, keeps me pretty matte, colour is spot on (NW 13 for winter and can go up to NW20 in summer). This is the perfect foundation for all seasons. Wish the pump came with the product. Wear time is pretty good, generally stays looking nice for 12 hrs despite my oily skin. There is a slight flashback so be wary! One of the only foundations that have never broken me out!

Eyeliner -MAC -Teddy Eye Kohl

Kohl pencil is soft and easy to apply. Colour is very pretty brown with flecks of iridescence. The downside, is that it transfers quickly to upper lid but most importantly the colour just doesn't last, even with a primer it fades after a few hours.


Primer/ Corrector -MAC -Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone

Bought this because it was on sale at £14 but normally I think it’s £16. I use it after I’ve done my skincare as a primer before I do the rest of my face. When on it’s very tacky but dries down matte. I don’t really know what it’s for but it does feel good and sets as a good base for foundation! Does reduce the size of my pores but nothing too dramatic
