Eye Shadow -MAC -Satin - Orb

This is a great, subtle highlight and/or lid color. For references, I’m between an NC35-NC41 and this plus a crease color is my everyday neutral shadow look. Beautiful with wedge or cork in the crease. My only slight complaint is the color payoff is a little underwhelming v other MAC shadows.


Liquid -MAC -Studio Face and Body Foundation

I thought I would have reviewed this already as I have repurchased and will repurchase this. It is one of my HG make-up products. I have dry skin with some pigmentation/unevenness but most days I only want light coverage and don't have time for precise application so I go for quick and easy products like BB creams or this. This foundation is indispensable for me because of the ability to match the shade using white. I have fair skin with cool undertones but not too pink so I can get away w/neutral sometimes but it's hard to find a shade match for foundations since my neck/body is even lighter than my face. F&B White is great since N1 being too dark for me is not an issue - I can mix them to match my skin tone, in summer and in winter. I sometimes also add in some coverfx or similar drops to give it more pink as there are no rosy/truly cool toned shades. I love that it is so quick to apply and set. So easy to get light coverage that helps even out my complexion without drying, breaking apart or clinging to dry spots. Takes a minute and it simply looks like bare skin... I mean this quite literally - since I can get a good shade match, once applied, it really looks like I have nothing on but skin.
When wearing by itself, I don't try to layer this for more coverage though you can if you let the layers dry. I just add concealer under the eyes or any areas that I have more pigmentation. But I do layer or mix it sometimes with other products. I'm not going to claim it plays well with every foundation but I use them, especially the white mixed in or layered with other foundations when I want more coverage or a less natural look. Sometimes sort of like a primer underneath, sometimes mixed in, or sometimes over foundations that feel a bit too matte (e.g., Marc Jacobs Remarcable). Sometimes I wear a thin layer of the white alone, even. It's important to apply this foundation by hand until it changes consistency. It it is best applied with hands. It's almost too liquid at first and a brush would eat too much of it up or make a streaky mess. It needs to thicken and settle into the skin, which will occur if you work with it with your hands fairly quickly even if it may seem like it's just going to run down from being so liquid. Start with a small amount and maybe even look up youtube videos by makeup artists (I think either Wayne Goss or Lisa Eldridge has a video on this). If you work it into the skin with fingers/hands, it changes consistency pretty quickly and within a minute it looks like you have nothing on at all! I do sometimes go over it later with a beauty blender or buffing brush if I have any uneven areas or if I applied too much but often I don't need to. It's affordable since the price, especially if you get the large bottle brings this to drugstore price level, although you may need to have two shades to mix to get a good match. TLDR: Quick, reliable, doesn't dry me out, oxidize or irritate, I can get a great match thanks to the white, and gives me a my skin but better look in no time. I truly love it!

Eye Shadow -MAC -Pigment in Violet

on 6/16/2018 1:45:00 PM

foto

This is my holy grail pigment from MAC. I can use it with a light hand on the outer corners of my eyes during the day to bring out my brown eyes. If I'm going out for drinks, I wet my brush a little to add a bit more intense color. The violet color scared me at first but you can control and build up the color if you want to wear it to work (I work in an office).

Eyeliner -MAC -Eye Kohl - Teddy

foto

A friend recommended this one to me and it's now one of my favorite products in my makeup bag. I currently have this in both Teddy and Smolder shades. The color is quite bold and intense, and it's so far the best eye liner I have tried - staying on almost a full day, despite me having quite oily skin/eye lids. Has lasted me for ages too, although that's partly down to me alternating between the two shades. I would re-purchase and would love to try some of the other shades too.

Lipstick -MAC -Satin Lipstick in Twig

The perf MLBB color!! This is a classic. This is what Rachel on “Friends” would wear or one of The Gilmore Girls would wear mom & dau. I have strayed from MAC lipstick to UD to Tom Ford/Bobbi Brown are my faves now I also enjoy elf lipstick but MAC is a high quality brand & still have kept their prices down. Kudos to them for producing a great product! If I lost this I would replace it as well as buying new colors. #winning Grade: A-

Lipstick -MAC -Satin Lipstick - MAC Red

foto

I bought it blind, based on reviews and online photos and - surprise! - it's even better than I expected.

It's such a complex colour and digital photography does not do it justice. M.A.C. Red is the softest among the brights, if that makes sense. In the tube, it looks like a true red, but on my lips it's more like a mix of burgundy and pink - it has depth and a strong blue undertone.

It is definitely not a warm shade. I would say try before you buy, if you are not sure about your ability to wear cool colours.

I know there are many dupes out there but I wouldn't even think of buying its copycats, as the shade is to die for.

I give four stars because it doesn't last as long as I hoped and leaves a circle after you eat. Not sure if it was a good idea to make a bright lipstick in satin finish, but it must be great for dry lips...

Skincare - Face -MAC -Fix + Rose

on 6/14/2018 5:43:00 PM

I've always had a bottle of Fix+ (the original one) in my makeup cabinet but it's never been my absolutely favourite finishing spray. Just today, though, I was at the MAC counter in my local mall on the way home from school. I was checking on something else but it was really, really warm (after a warm day in my classroom) and before I left, I picked up a bottle of the ROSE scented Fix+ just to spritz myself and cool off a bit. Ten minutes later, I was still smelling the glorious rose smell of this mist and it juts made me feel fresher and more relaxed. I'd like to mist my whole body with this stuff. I'm seriously going to head back tomorrow to pick up the full sized bottle (depending on where it's manufactured; as a Canadian, I am assiduously avoiding products made in the US for what I think are obvious reasons).


Lipstick -MAC -Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

This is the only matte lipstick I love and actually works on me and I've tried many matte lipsticks including high end and this is the only one I'll ever buy. Also I have extremely dry lips because I've taken accutane, but I can wear this all day and not have to worry about my lips getting chapped. It doesn't flake or ever dry out your lips. *warning the colours do dry darker, so it's better to go in store and test the shades.*

Brows -MAC -Eye Brows Styler

on 6/14/2018 3:38:00 PM

I haven’t written a review in a long time, but this is worth it.

I was going for the triangular-tipped Brow Sculpt but they’d sold out the colour I needed. This is how I discovered this little gem.
I have dark, sparse brows and chose the shade Stylized. It is incredibly easy to use and the effect is unbelievably natural. My makeup buddy told me she couldn’t believe it wasn’t my natural brows.
It is perfect in terms of packaging too: no need to sharpen, fully retractable tip, neat little pen with spoolie and caps for both ends.
I highly recommend it.

Pressed Powders -MAC -Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light

on 6/14/2018 3:20:00 PM

Sad to give this a bad review, but it wasn't good for me. Firstly, for a pressed powder: so pricey. Didn't do much for my oily skin, I was shiny within an hour or so. Lastly, this product gave me little white bumps under the skin. I find this happens with most mac makeup. Not sure what ingredient it is. Had to return it. If you have normal skin and no oil, this may work for you.
