Concealers -MAC -Pro Longwear Concealer

foto

This is without doubt my favourite concealer. We've been together for 6 long years, and I'm on my 4th bottle. It's not that I do not have affairs with over concealers, I do, but this one makes me come back to it every time. I use it sparingly (tiny dash here and there), and always use moisturiser before applying it under my eyes, because it is a dry formula.
My major discomfort comes from the packaging, which I hate. It just delivers too much product in one pump. Such a waste! What I do, is keep the bottle upside down so when I make a pump it's a really small squirt.

I went to get a sample of this after reading the reviews. I was very disappointed with the result.

As far as actually "concealing" anything, under eye darkness it does not conceal at all. So if you have dark undereyes like I do, good luck.

I also noticed that it wasn't brightening unlike concealers such as Tarte's Maracuja Creasless concealer (sadly that concealer caused me to have small red bumps under my eyes, so it's a no-go).

Lastly, it is extremely DRYING: I looked 10 years older after leaving it to set.


Lipstick -MAC -Retro Matte - Ruby Woo

MAC Ruby Woo is from the retro matte collection. I love matte lipsticks and this is the perfect red color for every skin tone. I always wanted to buy a red lipstick that would suit my skin tone but I always ended up in buying the wrong one which i would hardly use once or twice. And that is the reason today i have so many red lipsticks in my stash.

How was i introduced to Mac ruby woo?
One of my friend told me about the lipstick, after which i did quite a research over the internet and found good reviews and ratings. I then decided to buy this product.

Packaging - Black packaging that looks bold and is the typical MAC brand package.

Texture - The formula is very smooth and the lipstick has a pleasant odor.

Color - Richly pigmented and stays on for quite long hours.

It gives the perfect matte finish on the lips. Although it is a bit drying to the lips. But then that can be manged if you moisturize and exfoliate your lips properly prior to the application of the lipstick.

It is the queen of all the red lipsticks as it stands out because of its unique red color. I believe anybody who has used it once will definitely repurchase the lipstick.

Lips -MAC -Versicolour Stain

I have Tattoo My Heart, which I think is no longer available from the MAC store. It's a nice semi-neutral coral pink. Good for everyday wear. Goes well with my skin tone.

This is sort of a mix between a gloss and a stain. It applies almost watery, and once setting remains soft, like you have a thick layer of balm on. Application can be a little difficult because of just how loose and thin the formula is. I usually have to blot up some excess. Has a semi-wet shine.

Wearability is only slightly better than a gloss. Needs re-application after eating, drinking, etc. The stain left behind is minimal, but is probably more noticeable with darker colors. Lasts a few hours before needing a touch-up.

Very moisturizing, not drying at all.

The tube is odd but I like it. Short and fat. Easily distinguishable from my other lip products and easy to find in a purse.

I personally like this product a lot, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. I wouldn't be as forgiving of its watery application and short wear life if I had a more dramatic color. I would recommend trying it on in person before buying if possible.

Eyeliner -MAC -Eye Kohl - Teddy

The color is stunning! Dark brown with a gold shimmer.
The pencil is soft and glides easily. The staying power isn't impressive, lunchtime touch-up is needed, and one more for the evening out.
I can't wear it on my waterline, it hurts/ irritates my sensitive eyes.

Liquid -MAC -Mineralize Moisture SPF 15

I bought this foundation as it was recommended for people with dry skin, but I'm struggling to see what there is to like about it. The foundation clung to dry patches on my face, drawing more attention to them. It's also so watery that it just kind of slips and slides around my face. There's also no point really wearing it as it just looks like a tinted moisturiser and has barley any coverage.

Blush -MAC -Sheertone blush in Tenderling

Not sure if this is discontinued, I've had mine for several years and I love it.. It's a very natural nude pink, it's definitely not an in your face blush, but it's perfect for a no makeup make up look, or perfect to offset a bold eye look. I love MAC blushes, and must have at least 15 or 16, and have never purged one, or been unhappy with any I've purchased..definitely recommend. ❣💄💋

Lipstick -MAC -Lustre - Costa Chic

on 5/12/2018 9:00:00 PM

Costa Chic is a Frost, not a Lustre. However, the frost is subtle. (Otherwise I wouldn't have bought it.) I love it because it's a coral pink. It doesn't look orange on me. It's vibrant but not so bright that everyone will stare at your lips. It's soft enough for the office. Costa Chic goes on creamy and has MAC's signature vanilla scent. The coverage is opaque rather than sheer, and staying power is much better than average. It looks good with MAC Liptensity Lip Pencil in Art District. Definitely one of my favorite summer lipsticks.

Lip Treatments -MAC -Prep + Prime Lip

I dont really understand the point of this . Its not really moisturizing, is not helpful in keeping lipstick on and is expensive. I much prefer the NYX lip primer


Lip Gloss -MAC -Signs of Spring

on 5/11/2018 7:59:00 PM

MAC has gone downhill and their tinted lipglasses are a prime example. They used to have a better consistency and pigmented. This gloss is neither. I feel like many products at the drugstore are superior. I will not purchase.


Lipstick -MAC -Cremesheen + Pearl Lipstick - Shanghai Spice

foto

I chose this when I recycled my old packaging with back 2 mac. It is more like a lustre, buildable, glossy, short lasting power and definitely drying. The colour is obviously coral on me (Nc30). I would not repurchase because of how easily it wears off and is drying at the same time, and the colour isn't that flattering.

Palettes -MAC -Burgundy x9 palette

on 5/11/2018 7:23:00 AM

Do not buy this palette if you do not how to do your eye makeup. I have found it pretty hard to use. Like someone hit me and now my eyes got all black and such. Yeah


Lip Treatments -MAC -Prep + Prime Lip

foto

I remember wondering what the point of a lip primer was, and then my mid-thirties hit and I started getting these tiny lines around my lips that creamy lipsticks or glosses would sink into. At first I just used lip liner, but sometimes I don't want to alter the color of my lipstick. And another problem I was having was that matte lipsticks were looking crepe-y on my lips, giving them that not so sexy butthole look. I tried a cheap primer by Ulta, and it just made my lips feel more dry, same with Colourpop. Finally I gave in and paid way too much for too little product with MAC, but I was finally able to see the point of a lip primer! It goes on slick, but sets to a matte (but not dry) finish, smoothing all those lip lines along the way. It helps lipstick look better and smoother, and also improves wear! I primarily wear this one under matte lipsticks for the smoothing properties, but for keeping lipstick from creeping into lip lines, I prefer the fat Urban Decay Ozone pencil.

Concealers -MAC -Pro Longwear Concealer

I am NC20-NC25 with strong yellow undertones. I bought the NC25 which is slightly orangey on me but nothing that can't be fixed. It's similar to the Maybelline Eraser concealer in shade Light, light in texture, offers medium coverage, not moisturising. I like to use this on my face to spot conceal because it looks very natural. I also like to use one pump of this to darken my foundations especially the more dewy ones, because this concealer has a satin matte finish. By the way, the Physician's Formula - Insta Ready concealer is very dewy and creamy, creases way more and it's not a dupe.


Moisturizers -MAC -Strobe Cream

Someone had recommended this as an under eye primer on the make up board. I had bought it yonkers ago- when I had great skin, sigh i.e. young skin- and didn't really know what to do with it then. Well, now I can't live without it! It really evens out my foundation and gives me a healthier look. It works great under eyes too as I feel it makes wrinkles seem less refined. I'm very happy with it and always use it before applying foundation. I apply it all over my face like I would my moisturiser as a last step, I usually skip moisturiser as my make up would slide off and give off a slight greasy appearance (but I moisturise extremely well before going to sleep, I slather on cream and a face oil) so, I only use MAC strobe during the day before make up time and it works great for my dry skin. I bought the trial size and it has lasted me for months!
