My skin I have sensitive oily combo skin and I have big pores on my nose and get a few spots and my skins very sensitive so I have redness

I tried this foundation when I was at my friends house as she recommended it me however, I have more sensitive combo oily and she has dry. I was really hesatint Wether to put it on as I saw lots of reviews online saying that they got cystic acne! But I didn’t believe it because my friend didn’t get any acne after wearing it. I applied it with my morphe y6 brush in stippling motions and it went on very airbrushed and I didn’t even add a primer! I added Laura Mercier setting powder as I have more oily skin, I would say it’s sheer coverage but could possibly build after about 3 hours of wearing I started to notice it was getting quite cakey on the forehead and very shiny around my nose.Also parts of the foundation started to separate on my chin and nose, it also felt very itchy on my skin through out the day and it oxides a shade darker too.When I got home I noticed raised bumps on my forehead and chin which weren’t there before also it left my face very irritated when I took it off! Highly do not recommend this foundation at all.

Concealers -MAC -Studio Waterweight Concealer - NW20

on 5/24/2018 9:12:00 AM

I like this concealer, I have it in NW15 and it's great on my fair skin. I use it mainly on my undereye area. I find a tiny bit goes a long way. I only have to use a dab off the end of the applicator most of the time. I think I would waste product if I actually used the dropper. So although 9ml doesn't sound like a lot, I think this will last well. Its a pretty watery consistency, which I prefer over a heavy, creamy formula especially for my undereye area. The reason for 4 Star overall rating is that I do find that this creases veeeery slightly after about 3 hours. I haven't been using a primer, and I've been using a pretty cheap setting powder. Maybe trying it with a primer or a good quality setting powder would help. But I wish it would stay put on its own! Apart from that it's great.


Primer/ Corrector -MAC -Prep + Prime Skin

This is a good product. I don't really have any real complaints. I don't find the shimmer in this to be too obvious at all. It doesn't really blur any fine lines or pores, so if you need that function in a primer, this may not be for you. I also don't think it would work for dry skin all that well, but if you have combination or oily skin, I think it's great. It makes my makeup go on much more flawlessly and makes it last so much longer. I purchased three of these when I was going abroad a few years back, for fear of not being able to find it again. And I'm still using them. They haven't gone bad, spoiled or separated and you really only need a little bit, so one bottle lasts a very long time. I'm not sure I would repurchase, just because I'm a little bored of it at this point and I like to try new products. I'm also not getting any younger and I might move on to other primers that have more of a blurring effect.

Makeup Brushes -MAC -# 239 Eye Shader Brush

Awesome brush worth every cent! The bristles are soft, yet firm and this brush preforms like no other brush I have ever used on the lid! Fantastic brush for packing on colour, minimizing fall out, and help shadows look rich and opaque. The 239 is sturdy, well made, washes easily, retains it's shape, and no shedding. Highly recommend!

Liquid -MAC -Next to Nothing Face Colour

I was so excited for this product as it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for; something sheer, dewy and easy that just evened out my skintone a tad. Sadly the product seemed to weirdly oxidize on me and turned quite orange which I could somewhat stand since it's sheer, but what sadly ruined the product for me was the piling on the skin. I could wait 30-60 min for my skincare to really sink in and it would still find a way to pile like crazy.

Moisturizers -MAC -Strobe Cream

I LOVE this stuff!

It makes my skin look superrrr glowy and plump.

I apply this on my face after moisturizer then with foundation i just apply mainly in areas that need help (redness on cheeks, my discoloration on my smile lines and a few acne spots) and it becomes the perfect glowy no makeup make up <3.

I dont think i’ll be able to put this down this summer!

10/10 would recommend to anyone with normal-dry skin. Not sure how this would work on oilier skin types.


Liquid -MAC -Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

I used this foundation about 4-5 times before tossing it! The only redeeming quality about this foundation is the amount of product you get for the price.

I had high hopes for this foundation as I've always heard of it being a staple as far as foundations go, but I was sorely disappointed. Unfortunately, this foundation settles into every fine line you may have and sits on top of the skin, rather than "melting" into it. It gives you a cakey look and others can definitely tell that you are wearing foundation!

I would much rather choose a foundation that gives a "my skin but better" look as opposed to a mask like look.

Would not repurchase and would not recommend. I hate that I even wasted my money on this product.


Lip Gloss -MAC -Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour

I received the Mac Grand Illusion Lip colour in Let's Rock for Christmas. It's a red base with green glitter. It's comfortable to wear, the sparkles last all day, and it makes even my super dry gross lips look juicy and plump.

It slightly feathers and your hair will stick to it, but overall it's a super unique, beautiful colour. I love layering it over red lipsticks or wearing on its own. It also feels very hydrating! An easy way to put a little edge in your look! Highly recommend you try one for some fun.

Palettes -MAC -Warm Neutral 15

on 5/21/2018 11:20:00 PM

This is a solid 4.8 lippies, deserving of a bump to 5. I've only had this for about a week, but I have MAC's x15 Cool Neutral, and love it, so this purchase was a no brainer. 2 of the shades I already have in singles, but that didn't deter me at all from purchasing ..This pic that's shown here is awful, I have a better pic in my profile to check out! I think I could probably have this palette, and Tarte's Clay Play Face Shaping Palette, and be totally content(if I had to choose 2 of course😜). These shadows are pure buttery perfection, zero fallout, zero kick up, blend well, and have great wear time.. It's a suitable palette for anyone who is warm, cool, or neutral, it just WORKS.. It's $65, but a palette you will get tons of use out of. Definitely recommend ❣💄💋


Powder -MAC -Mineralize Skinfinish - Medium Plus

on 5/20/2018 12:51:00 PM

foto

Purchased a few months ago this finely milled powder comes in a full compact with a mirror inside as others have noted. On my aging skin it works great, does not leave me looking dry as many setting powders do. Blurs imperfections, leaves a very subtle glow, sets makeup.. Works applied to bare, moisturized skin just as well as over foundation and full makeup. Also, it adds some life to my matte powder blushes. I don't use highlighters, perhaps if you do this powder could be a bit much together with a highlighter..

At any rate it's hard to put my finger on exactly why I like this so much, other than to say it's just a perfect finishing touch to my face. The shade medium plus is on the lighter side of medium, vs. a darker medium as I personally would expect from the name.

It's pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

Liquid -MAC -Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

I purchased this at the Toronto airport so ONLY paid $40 tax free 😄 Absolutely in love... It's full coverage, long lasting & non transferring. A little goes a long way. So even tho I'm paying more than a DS product, it's def worth it as I find I need half the amount per use. This is my HG foundation ATM.

Blush -MAC -Powder Blush - Peaches

As the name suggests, peaches is a beautiful peachy warm tone blush. It is very buildable and wears well throughout the day. I will say it is best suited to those who have a more yellow undertone to their skin otherwise, it could pull a bit too orange. Highly recommend it!

Lipstick -MAC -Retro Matte - Ruby Woo

on 5/19/2018 3:48:00 PM

I disagree with the poster that said this looks good on every skin tone. Im nc 20 and it looked horrible on me! I looked like I was Ronald Mcdonald and I wasn't lovin' it! The online mac artist recommended saying away from this color and try Russian Red instead (based on my skintone ) but I bought it anyway. I returned it and purchased Russian Red which looks so much better on me. Ruby woo can look beautiful on some people and I really wish it worked out for me but sadly it didn't. If you get it and it doesn't work out, I strongly suggest to try Russian Red, which is a very slightly darkened red and I found it complimented my skintone perfectly.

Brows -MAC -Eye Brows Styler

on 5/19/2018 3:40:00 AM

This replaces MAC's Eye Brows Brow Definer, which was a pretty great little pencil except for three things. People frequently complained about the lead being very brittle and snapping off, something I could relate to. Another negative was that although you could advance the lead, you couldn't retract it. Finally, there was no spoolie. MAC went back to the drawing board to solve these problems and introduced MAC Eye Brows Styler, which is fully retractable. They even added a spoolie.

It comes in eight colors. I bought Fling, an ash blonde shade that isn't too grey. (This color is identical to Fling in the discontinued pencil.) The lead is still very thin, which is one of my favorite things about it. It's easy to make precise strokes. It's about the same diameter as Anastasia's Brow Wiz.

I think the formula has been improved because the lead is definitely not brittle. It's soft enough not to be scratchy, yet firm enough not to smear. I applied it this morning and I'm typing this review at midnight. My brows are still intact and I know I scratched one of them earlier today.

Unfortunately, it's not any cheaper than the previous pencil. This little darling goes for $19, but I'll pay it because I love everything else about it.

In case you want thicker lead, MAC offers a fatter pencil with a triangular shape called Great Brows Brow Sculpt. There is also a good old-fashioned wooden pencil, the MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, which requires sharpening.
