Lipstick -MAC -Velvet Teddy

I have very fair skin and have a hard time finding nude lipsticks that don’t make me look garish, make my teeth look incredibly yellow, or wash me out. I love this color—a medium red-brown that wears to a MLBB color that matches my inner lip color. I prefer matte versions because they last longer than say the creamsheen formula. This is matte, but not overly drying. The color also doesn’t bring out any yellow tones in my teeth, something that’s hard to find in nude lipsticks.

Primer/ Corrector -MAC -Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone

I got it because I wanted to fill pores around my nose since Studio Fix looks horrible in that area.It did nothing for my pores,it did help with oil control a bit and that’s why I’ll give it a 2.


Eye Shadow -MAC -Pigment in Melon

My favourite pigment by far.I never though I’ll find better than Blue Brown and I did.It’s a gorgeous golden,peachy shade.On my NW15 pure gold washes me out,but with this peachy shade it’s looks amazing.Especially with a tan and I’m more than impressed.I use it over Mac 24 hour base,and then apply it with a brush soaked with Fix +.It stays on until you take it off,which happend for me to even be next morning and day.All in all gorgeous gorgeous flattering pigment.

Makeup Brushes -MAC -#187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)

I adore this brush. Gives a beautiful finish I use this to blend my foundation around the edges of my face as well as to blend a lighter colour across my T zone.
Blends like a dream highly durable and easy to clean. Well worth the investment like all mac blushes. Also easy to build up natural looking coverage.


Eyeliner -MAC -Coffee Eyepencil

I can see how it may work for some people but if you have oily hooded eyelids it will smudge just everywhere. Even with an eye shadow on top it transferred on the crease each single time. Even with a primer. Otherwise very nice color, soft formula, super easy to apply. If you have dry or normal eyelids you'll probably will appreciate it more. Had to resold mine.

Highlighters -MAC -Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade

I love the lightscapade shade. Unlike other highlighters, this is not intense but gives me a natural glow. This is the highlighter that I always use on my makeup and would probably purchase again after I use it all up.

Liquid -MAC -Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

I've been using this foundation for a couple years now and it is my go to. I first went to Mac because I have a very fair complexion and at the time their shade range fit me best. I would consider it to be medium coverage but very easy to build onto. When it is set with a powder and spray it lasts all day and continues to cover everything. Only thing i dislike is that it comes with a screw off top and you have to purchase a pump separately from Mac.

Blush -MAC -Powder Blush - Sweet As Cocoa

This blush is beautiful in my neutral olive skin. The tone gives just a hint of color but adds warmth, the texture is not too glittery. I will purchase this again

Liquid -MAC -Studio Face and Body Foundation

I've become spoilt by that Mac F&B tacky/sinking in magic. You know-that point where it just melts into your skin and feels like it's become one with your face? Just a few weeks ago I finished up a bottle of the C1, and figured I'd tuck into a Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua I'd purchased earlier this winter (B10-wee light, but still doable on my nc20 skin). The Chanel is very nice, don't get me wrong. And I'll happily finish up the bottle. Especially at $50 bucks a pop. But the kicker is that, while the Aqua is pretty similar to the F&B in density, texture, and watery ease of application, I'm still waiting every morning for it to sink in like the F&B would do. And, of course, it doesn't. No offense to Chanel there, as I've never had any other liquid foundation do what F&B does.
And I miss it! Oh, and the Aqua is a bit of a lighter coverage foundation than the F&B also. Not too much, but I can still tell. So there will come a day later this year when I'll happily return to that old F&B magic!

I’m a NC42 and I love both Hint and Hush. I’m 62 but I like to look fresh and dewy. After I put on foundation I use it like a blush. It’s soft pearly and pretty. Never be without it

Lipstick -MAC -Lustre in See Sheer

on 3/25/2018 10:53:00 PM

It doesnt apply evenly and does not stay on at all. Looks odd on my nw20 skin. Its too coral for my taste. I prefer syrup a lot more. If you have cool pink undertones syrup would be the better choice. I hated this shade because i looked like a clown if i go ham and get the color to show but it separated on my lips if i just put one layer. It is so drying, lustre is ny least fav finish. Sigh too bad


Cleansers -MAC -Lightful C Marine Bright Formula Cleanser

on 3/25/2018 5:19:00 PM

Hands down my favourite cleanser! Love the packaging, squeeze tube that I can easily control the amt of product being dispensed. I only need a small amt-pea size and it lathers like crazy once it hits water. The consistency is creamy toothpaste-like, holds its shape once extruded out, soft rich lather. Smells really nice, soft clean scent, not overpowering in anyway. I haven’t noticed any adverse reaction with my skin. Breaks down powder, cushion and stick foundations, and heavy eye makeup. Works great on removing my mascara and all day lipsticks after one wash. Face is clean, supple no residue left behind. Love this product- HG status in my daily skincare regimen. Con’t to repurchase...

Cleansers -MAC -Cleanse Off Oil - Tranquil

on 3/25/2018 5:19:00 PM

Purchased on a whim after learning that oil make up remover is much more effective than regular micellar water, I thought I’d try it out. It turns out I really like this product and its action! It’s very oily on application, spray pump nozzle can be messy. Constantly wiping the bottle. I don’t detect a scent and I can’t say that I’ve had any reactions/irritation to the product. I pump a few drops in my hand and massage it throughout my face with the days makeup on. You can see it breaking down before your eyes. I then wash my face of the oil and debris with warm water. For me, the oil does the job of breaking down makeup without having to be aggressive on removal. I follow up with a wash of either Mac Marine Bright Cleanser or Clinique soap (pending on the amt of make up worn). Because of the oily residue, definitely needs to be rinsed off and then washed off with a soap or cleanser. Overall I really like this make up remover it’s now replaced my micellar water... defin will repurchase!

covers whatever you need to cover, and doesnt budge. sweatproof, full coverage, stays put concealer. worth the price. only thing im concerned with is getting to the bottom of the bottle, will there be product i cant extract, its a pump bottle, glass, with a non removeable pump. for what i paid- id like to be able to use it all, please and thank you ! but for sure, of your needing a one coat, full coverage concealer, this is it. its legit.

Concealers -MAC -Pro Longwear Concealer

This is my HG concealer. I have tried countless mid to high end concealers and could not find anything that did not make my under eye area dry and crepey, until I found this concealer. I have an extremely dry under eye area and this sits beautifully on my skin. I would describe the finish as satin, coverage is medium to full and it lasts incredibly well without looking ever looking cakey. I always use a beauty blender to apply this and it gives it a very flawless finish. M.A.C is one of the few brands that provide a fantastic colour range. I am very pale and am able to find the perfect shade (NW15). I believe the only downside to this product is the packaging. I would prefer it wasn’t glass so it’s not easily breakable and also the pump dispenses too much product. However, these are very minor downsides to me and I will continue to repurchase this forever!
