Primer/ Corrector -MAC Cosmetics -Prep + Prime Skin

on 8/31/2018 1:30:00 AM


This primer on its own is not able to keep my oils at bay, but i use it more for little bit of hydration than a mattifient. I pair this up with the Estee Lauder mattifying primer and both together work wonders. Am not sure about repurchasing this as i may switch to Laura Mercier hydrating primer

Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -Matte2 - Blanc Type

on 8/30/2018 11:49:00 PM


I love this so much I have 2; one in my travel quad, the other in my daily use 18 pan palette that I created. The cost of the refill pans is so low, less than half the price of the stand alone pots, and the ability to make a personalized palette makes so much sense I'm surprised they still sell any of the shadows in the stand alone pots.

This is the best allover base shade EVER. I used to use Brule, and I still use that sometimes, but this matches my skin better. Brule is a deeper beige ivory with a yellow undertone in comparison, this is a lighter, slightly cooler ivory. I am an NW 15-20 if it helps anyone. This cancels out redness, blue veins, darkness, everything leaving a nice clean satiny matte canvas. I can double it up at the end as an inner corner or brow bone highlight.

It is a matte but almost a satiny feel. Not chalky EVER, but smooth, and creamy feeling. Blends out like a whisper.

I hope they NEVER ever discontinue it again, now it's back it should stay! But if they ever do, it's worth remembering this is kind of what you'd get if you did equal parts of Vanilla and Brule.

Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -Satin - Brun

This is a fantastic dark brown liner shade. I use it or Charcoal Brown (somewhat lighter) for tightlining my lash line by using it to push up against my lashes with an eyeliner brush.

It darkens and thickens my lash line, lasts all day long, doesn't migrate.

Slight tendency to fallout as I apply it though, so I use a folded kleenex below the eye as I apply it to catch the sprinkles. After that it doesn't budge.

Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -Matte - Charcoal Brown

on 8/30/2018 11:37:00 PM


This is one of the four MAC shades I have in my travel quad, as well as my 18 pan personal daily palette. It's the one shade I'd buy first if I lost all my eyeshadows of any brand. I'd even buy it in the stand alone pot, not just the less than half the price refills.

It is a cool taupey grey undertoned dark brown that I use as a brow filler, eye liner and outer V deep shade. It's a matte, blends out like a dream. You can use it for an eyeliner (I push it up under the lashes to tight line with, using an eyeliner brush) or the brows, it never pulls red. And it sheers out to a whisper of colour for the outer V.

It does it all. On a fast get ready day I can fill my lids in with foundation powder, then use this sheered out for a transition, a little deeper on the outer V, and deeper still on the lashline, and also to fill in brows.

When I put in more effort I like it with Blanc Type and Kid and a shimmer for effect on the lid. It literally goes with everything.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

- Oh Lady is a stunning color, and I can even wear it during daytime without looking ott. A bit dry and quite patchy, but still wearable. 4/5
- Topped with Brandy is much less of a success: when on my lips, this apparently beautiful brown-plum literally becomes the color of dry mud, and it takes around an hour of wear before it starts to look nice - which it somehow does, eventually. 2/5

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Retro Matte Lipstick - Flat Out Fabulous

on 8/29/2018 1:41:00 PM


Although fabulous on other people, on me Flat out fabulous is too loud and harsh, and made wearable only combined with a deeper lip pencil.
Fine texture-wise, and lasts long.

Lip Treatments -MAC Cosmetics -Tendertalk Lip Balm in Pretty Me Up

on 8/29/2018 11:45:00 AM


This is a review of the color 'Candy wrapped'. I like the balm, but the color is too dark for me. I thought it would make my lips more pale, but instead it gave a lot of pink color.

Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -Pro Longwear Paint Pot - Painterly

on 8/29/2018 11:32:00 AM


I was actually after the stormy pink one, but couldn't find it, so I got painterly instead. While applying, painterly looks very plain, but after it dries out it turns into a gorgeous soft pink color on my lids, if you combine it with groundwork it looks amazing. Consistency is a bit waxy, but I may have a dud. I like the fact it is in a pot, so I can apply it either with a brush or the tip of my fingers.

Blush -MAC Cosmetics -Powder Blush - Mocha

on 8/29/2018 10:43:00 AM


Despite the hard pan I get all the time (which I' m afraid might be an issue with that particular shade), Mocha is my favorite.
Blushbaby, which I wore for years before this, looked OK: a tad too warm, and a bit boring, really. However, I used it up.
But when I tried Mocha on bare skin, the difference was stunning: my complexion just became more luminous and healthier.
Mocha is so natural that it never becomes noticeable under any light - it just enhances everything else: eyes, brows, lips. So, I guess, I now have a staple blush!

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Viva Glam III

on 8/29/2018 10:30:00 AM


A seriously beautiful, beautifully serious color! I cannot recommend it enough to everyone with high-contrast coloring who seeks a very dark neutral for day and evening.
My only small gripe is that within one hour of wear, the initial brownish plum tone somehow disappears and, unless I layer a bit, the color fades slowly but steadily (though, fortunately, evenly) to a deepest pink-plum - which is still beautiful, just not brown at all.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Dance With Me

on 8/29/2018 10:22:00 AM

I finally found a red for my deep winter coloring which I can wear without feeling ott (like I did with Ruby Woo)... Dance with me is elegant, flattering, bright but not loud. Win!

Verve is a very good MLBB lipstick on my deep winter coloring. Neither too cool or too warm - just a nice, midtone neutral. Love it for everyday!

Nice color, which would probably benefit from a dry texture. It is, however, better in terms of wear compared to Antique Velvet which is labelled matte but is really too creamy. This one fades evenly, at least, although within an hour of wear.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Frost Lipstick in O

on 8/29/2018 10:10:00 AM


I had really high expectations of this one, and was quite disappointed when I saw how its frost finish seriously undermines the depth of the color by reflecting so much light. Beautiful, but not for me.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Retro Matte - Instigator

on 8/29/2018 10:08:00 AM


Too blue, too artificial on me. Plus, its texture was too creamy for it to be considered a real matte. Back to Mac, unfortunately...
