Mascara -MAC -In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash

This mascara ia amazing! Very shocked that so many did not like it. Really separated and lengthened my lashes. The brush is ideal size, not intimidating and large like many mascara brushes. I can use this on the lower lashes and outer corner hairs with no problem. I did get slight irritation but that's normal for me with most mascaras due to my allergies. Definite repurchase.


Eye Shadow -MAC -Matte - Malt

I bought Malt thinking it would be a nice earthy rose toned crease color but in reality works better as a transition color. On my light warm skin looks more pink salmon to be honest. Not crazy pigmented but blends well. Pretty but not a must have for me.


Lipstick -MAC -Nicki Minaj - Nicki's Nude

This is a gorgeous shade! Not drying at all but doesn’t last very well. I counteract that by using a lipliner underneath. Great with a smokey eye look

I love this paint pot a lot! I dont like painterly or soft ochre cuz they are super thick and dry out my eyelids(they look terrible on me), if you have oily eyelids I dont recommend this paint pot but if you have dry lids, , it will be perfect for you. And also it s a good base for shimmery beige/pink eyeshadows. I use it with my nars "Fathom" eyeshadow. Looks gorgeous

Powder -MAC -Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

I have high hopes for this product because it's expensive and it's MAC. It doesn't control oil very well and it cakes on my face even though I only put little using a brush. It doesn't have SPF so you need some sunscreen under it. The packaging seems a bit flimsy for me. It's just the typical MAC compact and I hope they will upgrade it with a less bulky compact. It only provides medium coverage and you need to build it up so thickly if you want a really full coverage which is bad because it will cake! I still prefer my Burberry one compared to this one. There are a lot of drugstore dupes for this that won't break your bank and your heart when you already hit pan to it because they're so much more affordable. If you want to try it go on but I still recommend a lot of affordable drugstore products.

Lipstick -MAC -Matte - Kinda Sexy

on 12/21/2017 6:49:00 PM

Kinda Sexy is one of my favourite nude MAC lipsticks. It is one I wear to work often as it adds some colour to my face and warms up my complexion while making me look put together but not over-done. Kinda Sexy is a peachy-coral nude shade, which looks particularly fantastic against many different complexions. It looks particularly nice when I have a strong suntan (bringing me from NC15 to NW20 complexion). It has a matte finish which is comfortable to wear. I don’t find it drying but it does not provide any hydration at all. It doesn’t bleed or sink into lip lines. It applies easily without needing to tug the lips. It has excellent staying power and lasts through eating and drinking - I have worn this through many 10 hours shifts! It is a reliable and nude that every neutral-warm toned person should have in their lipstick wardrobe! Definitely one of my top MAC picks!

Eyeliner -MAC -Liquidlast Liner - Point Black

on 12/20/2017 1:46:00 PM

As I am aging, I have developed very watery, sensitive eyes in addition to having oily skin. Eyeliner and mascara have been very difficult for me for about 5 years. Many run, smear, smudge on my lower lids which is so frustrating for me. Working on a computer all day doesn't help either. This is a very good liner with excellent staying power. I don't use the applicator but use one of my own angle brushes. It is not as easy as using a pencil liner but I'm willing to put in the time and effort.

Liquid -MAC -Mineralize Moisture SPF 15

on 12/19/2017 7:52:00 PM

Still on the fence.

I'm a young mature-skin, dry-skinned person - no deep lines, just general dehydration lines, tiny bit of very very fine lines. NC20. Wanted something dewy, not cakey or matte.

First time I tried this I really liked it. Maybe it was Winter.

It is now Australian Queensland Summer. Early Summer, so late 20s to early 30 degree Celsius days.

This DOES NOT SET. It stays wet no matter what primer I have used, or even with a moisturiser that I've allowed to sink in beforehand. When I use TIMECHECK lotion (Mac) as primer, I may as well just hose my face down with water and call it a day. Timecheck is NOT a primer. It will UNSET any make-up I've used it with. I would never recommend using it as a primer or under any make-up in a hot climate, even with the kind of dry mature-skin I have. (See my Timecheck review.)

After trying Mineralise with various primers and moisturisers (including Mac Strobe cream, which works well with some other MAC foundations even in this heat), Mineralise just DID NOT SET. It remained wettish to the touch and transferred instantly. This means, DO NOT BLOW YOUR NOSE or use a serviette unless you're ready to touch up on the spot. It has the stay-ability of a moisture-cream lipstick.

But I am trying to remain open-minded, because I want to like this so much. If I could make it work, it would be excellent. My best result so far, is treating it like a BB cream, and putting NOTHING on underneath. No moisturiser, no primer. Just straight on. This makes it still remain dewy, slightly "moisturising" to the touch, not truly "setting" but not "dripping off" either. I could live with that. (Though it still transfers like crazy).

So my personal summary is, if you want to use it like a BB cream, with nothing underneath, and reapply it every now and again, like you would a sunscreen or moisturiser, it may be worth getting, which is why I'm giving it 3 stars. I don't regard it as a true foundation. Not on it's own anyway.

To be super-fair, I haven't used the Mineralise Skinfinish Natural Powder over the top of it (which might help set it) because I don't like powders, they sit in lines, and tend to void the purpose of buying a dewy foundation in the first place. I find that my Pro-Longwear doesn't need a powder, nor any of my other MAC foundations (on me). (I use Pro-Longwear, Pro-Longwear Waterproof, Waterweight.)

So to be nice, I am coming back later to re-edit this after I've tried it with the Powder on the top. I'm just not in a hurry because I've read that the powder isn't that great for setting and tends to transfer, though some people love the finish.

Makeup Brushes -MAC -#217 Blending

on 12/19/2017 7:40:00 PM

I have two MAC 217's, they are over 5 years old and they are in excellent condition. They perform beautifully after all these years of near-daily use and countless cleanings. The are not scratchy and they don't irritate my highly allergic, very sensitive eyes. I use a very gentle , non-alxohol, fragrance free cleaner; sometimes ill dry them with a brush cover on to keep their shape, but I've let them just plain air-dry (no shape-covers) and they have kept their shapes and textures perfectly. They pick up product beautifully, handle beautifully, and when I am on autopilot these are what end up in my hands.
Am a makeup brush hoarder (it's an illness 😜😆). I've had to try many different brands and types due to extreme eye sensitivity.. and due to performance issues. I've tried all sorts of dupes for the 217, thinking that if I found the perfect dupe I would save wear & tear on my 217s and have them forever primo! I bought 3 Coastal scents dupes 3 years ago, and they were phenomenal in shape, texture and performance-- when I ordered more for gifts, the CS brushes were cut very poorly and couldn't even perform. Haphazard batches I guess. I have 4 dupes by Crown Brush, which are cut well, have a wonderful texture & perform well--but they aren't the exact shape of the 217, which always does me right! The Crown Syntho line is excellent. But, the MAC 217 reigns supreme as my FAV eye brush! A guaranteed performer!
Am heartbroken these have been discontinued! Yes, they are too expensive. But they are an investment. If eye makeup is your thing, these are WORTH every penny.
