Concealers -MAC - Pro Longwear Concealer

Too drying and ends up flaky. I'm approaching 40 so I have dry under-eyes. I cannot use this product under my eyes or on dry patches. Also, the container design is lousy. The only way to get the product out is to pump, and one is already too much, even if you carefully press gently.

This product does not do much in terms or priming or setting my makeup but I do love using it to increase the pigment of eyeshadows. I spray a little on my brushes and it makes me eyeshadow look brighter, bolder and last a little longer. Would not buy again as its a glorified eye primer for me.

Makeup Brushes -MAC - Mac Masterclass Oval 6

I really don't know why i brought this brush I guess i just gave as the hype around oval brushes was huge so i decided to get mac one as most oval brushes are quite expensive and couldn't justify spending that much on a product!
This is quite a small brush and works well to apply foundation, i have to say each time i use this brush i get compliments on my makeup as it looks quite flawless and smooth, unlike some tools/brushes it doesn't take away the coverage of the foundation.
I would say if you have time on your hands and don't mind the extra effort then you might like this, however if you always in a rush and don't have time then skip this as you might yourself not reaching for this! I don't regret the purchase because i'm glad i tried it and to be honest it isn't a bad product i would much prefer using a normal brush!

This not a setting spray it does take the powdery look away however it does not set the makeup it's more of a hydration / refresher with nutrients for the skin can be used before makeup,also to spritz ur brush to enhance the color of ur eyeshadow so it shows up true to color on the eyelids and before setting spray but it will not lock ur makeup in place it's a go to for me b4 my setting spray .

Honestly im on the fence about this one! I got a limited edition coconut scented one so the smell is gorgous and my skin def feels a bit more hydrated after spritzing it on before I go ahead and put on the makeup but if I do the usual - serum, moisturiser, sunscreen then prep + prime it's just a bit of an overkill for my skin! (Over moisturised...sweaty looking skin in some pics) :0

To buy this as a "primer"...not a good call...
if you dont have time to moisturise then good to "prep" the skin definatly. Worth it.

Think It will work better in the winter when wearing more powders/matt looks , when the bb creams and dewy-ness of the summer is over.

With a matt face it does take away that powdery look so as others before have said, spritz over the completed face.

Less is more with this product...but when it smells so coconutty and nice it's hard to stop spraying!!

Bought this recently as I ran out of my Heritage Rosewater & Glycerin spray. I use it as a refresher, before I put on makeup, eye shadow foiling, etc.
I do like Fix +. But it performs exactly the same as the Rosewater & Glycerin spray. It's just way more expensive for a smaller bottle. I pay 5 or 6$ for 8 ounces of the Heritage. Fix + is like 25$ for less than 4 ounces.

The only thing I like better is the spray bottle, it delivers a fine mist that's really hard to beat. But the Heritage has 2 ingredients, no synthetic fragrance, and is cost effective.

I like a lot of MAC stuff, but this is a pass for me.

Lipstick -MAC - Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

All I can say is that I'm obsessed. I never bought into the hype of liquid lipsticks, so I ignored these in the MAC store and online for so long. But then they came in a kit, "Love in a Box" and I obviously had to have it. I got the shade Call Me, Love and thought it would be too bright but it is the most gorgeous fuchsia colour. It goes on smooth (I use the 242 brush) and fills in perfectly. I was surprised how not drying it is and I'm currently ordering a bunch more colours. As with most MAC products, I want so many of them that I wish it were cheaper but for $21 it's not a terrible price considering I'll probably have it forever since my lipstick collection is so big.

Fragrances -MAC - Ruby Woo Shadescents

disgusting smell with undertones of dirt. hated it.


Fragrances -MAC - Ruby Woo Shadescents

foto

First, let me say that I really love all six Shadescents fragrances....I had to be good and start off by buying only 3 and not the whole shebang. I knew I was going to fall in love with Velvet Teddy, but it was Ruby Woo that surprised me the most. I am ADDICTED to this scent. The notes are: leather, suede, cherry, violet, saffron, mahogany, sandalwood, rose, and orris. On me, the notes are cherry lipgloss and cigarette smoke, but in the BEST WAY POSSIBLE. I smell like a bad girl, bad decisions, and a raunchy night on the town. I smell like a rockabilly queen, or like Rizzo getting ready for a night out with Kenickie. I ADORE THIS ONE. I am sad this only comes in the 30ml size as I want to bathe in it. I don't even like cigarette smoke, but this is amazing. I'll be grabbing a backup because you know MAC, they'll dc it before I can blink. The bottles are lovely as well, I love the design and how they match with the corresponding lipstick. Affordable at $57. A+

Concealers -MAC - Pro Longwear Concealer

This concealer is the most pigmented I have ever try. Covers ANYTHING. But it creases so much. I always mix it with a drop of face and body foundation to make it work because it's way too heavy. The packaging is not good. One pump would conceal you ten times or more because you need the tiniest amount for every under eye area. I have to say that it stays in its place like nothing else. It's the most prolong wear product I've ever use. Even a swatch in my hand with this needs some kind of oil for it to disolve and to be removed. Will not buy again but it's not a bad product.

Primes well the skin before make up because contains glycerin. Make up sticks well to glycerin.
This product contains good skincare ingredients such as cucumber extract, caffeine and chamomelia extract.
If you spray it after your make up, it does prolong it a little bit but most off all this helps get rid of the powdery look if you applied much powders. Works perfect as an eyeshadow intensifier. I also spray my mascara tube with a spritz if it has dried down and revives the mascara without changing the result. Smells very nice. Works well if you spray your sponge blender with it and blend your foundation or powder. Great face mist if I want something quick to hydrate. It does not break me up ( I have oily combo skin). Contains Hydrogenated Castor Oil, that's maybe why some people break out with the use of it, but the oil helps your powders blend and it "fixes" them. It's a fixing spray in my opinion, not a setting spray. It is expensive but I will buy it again because of its multiuses.

Liquid -MAC - Face and Body Foundation

Very light coverage. Luminous finish. Very liquid-y. Water-based but still blends well with ot her foundations (oily based). Definitely needs setting with a powder after applying. I usually like medium to full coverage but I use a drop or to of this to blend with my concealer (if it's a concealer that does not blend that well into the skin) and works fine. Good product. Does not oxidize.

Lipstick -MAC - So Chaud

foto

OMG I love this lipstick I went to Mac because I was going to pick up my gel eyeliner and recycle my 6 empty purchases. Well I was originally looking at all the new hot pink and matte colors Mac has added recently, but the problem is I have a ton of lipsticks already and so many reds and hot pinks and nudes and I don't wear them enough as it is. So I have been wanting a trendy matte orange lipstick but I haven't found one that flatters my skin tone and is matte but not so matte it makes my lips crack. I tried a couple of liquid lipsticks but they looked great in the bottle but not so much once applied. So comes in Chaud ! Omg this is such a great color I love it. Applied with the pro long wear orange lipliner it is the exact color I wanted and texture it comes off as a cream, but matte so its not so drying or so flat. And I got it for free thanks to the recycle program.
