Lip Gloss -MAC Cosmetics -Nymphette lipglass

foto

I love Lipglass! I must have every color. It truly is the best lipgloss in the world. My only complaint is that it's a tiny bit sticky but I can live with that. When you want shine that will get you noticed go with MAC Lipglass! They don't call it that for nothin.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Red Rock

on 10/18/2018 6:26:00 AM

I am so glad that MAC added a bunch of new matte shades to their permanent collection, especially this stunning red!

Think of Ruby Woo, but less dry and much brighter - this is what Red Rock is. It is a wonderful, true red with a hint of blue. Makes your teeth white and is a wonderful, universally flattering red that more people should know about!

You can wear it all year long; it is that classy and chic! I normally pair mine with Ruby Woo lip liner and together they are a perfect match.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Matte Lipstick - Instigator

Colours like this are so hard to formulate (be it an eyeshadow or lipstick) but MAC really did their best to make this blackened currant as rich as possible!

It will require at least two layers, unlike most other mattes from the brand, but if you are into that modern 20s lip trend or cool punk looks, you need to give this one a shot. It is creamy, yet matte at the same time. I would definitely recommend using a lip liner with this shade, something like Currant or Nightmoth would be perfect.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Matte Lipstick - Studded Kiss

Although this shade looks like nothing much in the tube, in real life it is an absolute 100% perfect fall colour.

Imagine Diva and Sin having a baby? This would be it - an ideal mix of brown, red and purple. This shade is sophisticated, sexy and chic all at the same time. Looks fabulous on beauties of all ages and colours. Formula here is great: creamy application, comfortable wear, rich opacity. No streaks, bleeding or anything like that.

Do yourself a favour and check this one out! For unedited arm, lip swatches of this and other MAC matte lipstick shades you can check out my separate review here (https://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/10/17/5-MAC-Lipsticks-You-Should-Try-This-Fall). Hope it helps!

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Matte Lipstick - D For Danger

Forget Rebel, get D For Danger!

I don't know why people don't really talk about this shade, it is absolutely gorgeous! Best berry-toned red that MAC carries in my (not so humble) opinion. And believe me I know MAC lipsticks by heart.

This is again one of those perfect, universally flattering lipsticks that will look amazing on everyone. I've recommended it to so many people and it looks great on everyone. The colour is not too deep, not too bright. Formula is amazing; it applies easily and does not dry out your lips. What not to love?

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Matte Lipstick - Whirl

I was never into the 90s lip trend, so was avoiding this shade at all costs.

Until I was chatting to a friendly MAC employee and while we were discussing just how awful most warm browns look on me (think Velvet Teddy gone brassy) she suggested that I go for Whirl. Never in my wildest dreams would I think that this shade would suit me so well!

This is literally the perfect brown lipstick for people who do not like brown lipsticks. It is opaque, creamy and wears so well. I think this is a perfect, universally flattering shade that will look great on everyone. I highly recommend it!

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

on 10/17/2018 12:23:00 PM

I chose Lady Be Good (similar color to the Spice lip pencil I’d say) and I hated it UNTIL I fixed it. The formula is horrible and the color dries different than it starts out. Weird. I tried all different ways to apply it (putting lip balm on first etc) and no matter what was tried it was horrible. Patchy, drying and didn’t spread well because it’s so thin. Ugh, anyway...I got fed up and decided to make it way better. I first squirted some lipmix satin into the tube THEN added some clear lipglass as well and now it’s a gorgeous moisturizing lip gloss: now it is perfect. I love the way the actual tube looks but way too much product comes out on the wand but seeing as it’s not a doe foot but a pear sort of shape that was probably all part of this particular product. I won’t be buying it again but at least I’m now happy with the one I bought and can use it.

One hour later: EDITED TO ADD: it turns out the retro matte formula does NOT play nice with either lipglass or lipmix satin: it would not blend. It applied perfectly on my lips then the retro matte formula would separate into patches while on my lips and would ball up when I rubbed my lips together. Arghhhh! So I got mad and took the stopper out of the tube, removed as much of everything I could from the tube (horrid retro matte formula is so thin it would easily come out past the other stuff I added earlier when the tube was whacked upside down on a paper plate on my kitchen counter) and refilled it with a more generous amount of lipglass, lipmix satin and lip conditioner. I took a clean bamboo skewer and stirred everything before replacing the tube stopper and finally NOW it is behaving, and the color of the tube is still looks the exact same as when I bought it yet it applies with only a tiny tint of the original color and a whole lot of hydration. Now it truly is perfect because it’s mostly three different Mac lip moisturizers combined! Never again and thank goodness this is the only Retro Matte Liquid I bought!

Bronzers -MAC Cosmetics -Matte Bronze

on 10/15/2018 7:18:00 PM

I am c1 to c2 nc20ish and this blends into my cheeks seamlessly. It doesnt look orange or muddy. Ive always had trouble finding a good bronzer. I dont contour, i simply just use this to warm up my skin. Id put this on my neck(if i am using c2 in face and body and it can be a tad dark so i use this bronzer to make my neck and chest match my face.) I also use this on the outside perimeters of my cheeks and some on the forehead. Basically "where the sun hits". I like that this is matte and does not have any shine or shimmer. I like how this makes me look more tan without it looking fake or too harsh.

This has become my everyday staple to help match my summer foundation to my neck. I dont want to get another shade for winter so my trick is to use this bronzer so i dont look like my face is darker than my chest. It adds color in a subtle way because its not super pigmented so its buildable and layerable to your preference. If its too harsh, you can mess up a lot faster and easier. Ive tried and hated hoola lite bronzer. That one had so much kickup and it just didnt look good on me. I much prefer this. Id recommend.

edit- i been using this as my transition shade for my eyeshadow and it works beauitful!!!! I love it because its now multi purpose. Hg

Mascara -MAC Cosmetics -In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash

on 10/15/2018 5:55:00 PM

I really shouldn't review mascaras at all, because middle age has wreaked havoc on my already sparse, short, thin, dark blonde lashes. Thick or long barrels make a message of my eyelids, with more product on skin than hair. I usually forego mascara completely and just use a chocolate brown eye pencil slightly smudged.

So I got a sample of this one in a recent Birchbox and I'm sorry to say, no miracles happened here. The brush is long and round enough to be useless on my cobwebby bottom lashes. The formula is a bit on the dry side, so I didn't get many uses out of this sample size. I was not impressed by the product. Even if the brush had been short and thin (like the Clinique mascara for bottom lashes, or the IT Cosmetics variety) I don't think the formula was that great.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Liptensity lipsticks (all shades)

on 10/13/2018 8:42:00 PM

One of the few MAC lipsticks I manage to use and whittle down the bullet of because the product doesn't peel my lips (unlike every other lipstick in their line.) These are pricier unless you catch them on a sale, which MAC seems to be doing pretty often lately, whether that's 25%, or even 50% for a flash sale the other day.

There's a tackier texture to them, so they're a little longer than your regular cream lipstick. The finish of these is satin to creamy, for sure and they will move as they do not truly set. Reapplication is required after eating and drinking but fading is graceful.

I have these in over 10 shades, and I don't regret the purchases unlike I do with some other lipsticks (both in general and from MAC.) I can go without lipbalm on the days I use this so it is my favourite until Mac discontinues it lol!

I am warm based NC15-25, depending on the season. Some of my favourite shades are Mulling Spices, Habanero, Doe, Cloud in my Coffee, and King Salmon. Still bummed I missed out on Lobster.

Pressed Powders -MAC Cosmetics -Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light Plus

foto

I'm dehydrated yet oily, very acne-prone, with heavy texture on cheeks and nose. Sadly this powder does not work for me. It breaks down and literally slides off my face after a few hours and clogs my pores. Even with primer and setting spray. I also don't love that there's no room in the package for a powder puff for midday touchups.

On the bright side, the Light Plus shade is a great match for my NC20 skin. It looks a bit light when applied, but then blends into my skin within a few minutes.

FYI around 10 years ago when my skin was COMPLETELY different (I had dry skin, no acne, and invisible pores), this powder made my skin glow. That's why I'm giving it a rating of 2 lippies.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Powder Kiss

on 10/13/2018 12:51:00 PM

For the record, I hate wearing matte lipsticks, because the formulas usually dry out my lips. I was intrigued by a MAC ad for Powder Kiss lipstick (which featured a lovely girl using it as a blush and lipstick) and had to try it. It is described by MAC as a lipstick that gives a matte finish with the feel of a balm.

I've only worn this a few times, but it does seem worthy of the hype. It does feel like a balm and the color is a nice matte pink (I'm wearing A Little Tamed). It feels great on, unlike any other matte I've tried.

Because it does feel so nice, the lasting power isn't great. It did last through drinking a glass of water, but sticks around for about 2 hours on me. That's not unusual, though--lipsticks that last longer on me tend to dry out my lips. I'll gladly accept the burden of reapplying if it means that my lips won't end up dry and flaky.

A few others have commented on the scent being somewhat "rubbery," and I agree. It's definitely not the MAC vanilla scent that I'm used to. I don't notice any taste, however, and the scent isn't strong enough to irritate me.

So far so good. I wouldn't say that this is necessarily HG material or the best balm ever, but it does give me a matte look and I don't hate it. :) I might even check out other colors, although most of them seemed to be quite warm.
