Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Liptensity lipsticks (all shades)

One of the few MAC lipsticks I manage to use and whittle down the bullet of because the product doesn't peel my lips (unlike every other lipstick in their line.) These are pricier unless you catch them on a sale, which MAC seems to be doing pretty often lately, whether that's 25%, or even 50% for a flash sale the other day.

There's a tackier texture to them, so they're a little longer than your regular cream lipstick. The finish of these is satin to creamy, for sure and they will move as they do not truly set. Reapplication is required after eating and drinking but fading is graceful.

I have these in over 10 shades, and I don't regret the purchases unlike I do with some other lipsticks (both in general and from MAC.) I can go without lipbalm on the days I use this so it is my favourite until Mac discontinues it lol!

I am warm based NC15-25, depending on the season. Some of my favourite shades are Mulling Spices, Habanero, Doe, Cloud in my Coffee, and King Salmon. Still bummed I missed out on Lobster.

Pressed Powders -MAC Cosmetics -Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light Plus

foto

I'm dehydrated yet oily, very acne-prone, with heavy texture on cheeks and nose. Sadly this powder does not work for me. It breaks down and literally slides off my face after a few hours and clogs my pores. Even with primer and setting spray. I also don't love that there's no room in the package for a powder puff for midday touchups.

On the bright side, the Light Plus shade is a great match for my NC20 skin. It looks a bit light when applied, but then blends into my skin within a few minutes.

FYI around 10 years ago when my skin was COMPLETELY different (I had dry skin, no acne, and invisible pores), this powder made my skin glow. That's why I'm giving it a rating of 2 lippies.

I really wanted to like this foundation! After 4 hours it had started to become patchy around my mouth and on my chin


Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -A Little Tamed (Powder Kiss)

on 10/13/2018 12:51:00 PM

For the record, I hate wearing matte lipsticks, because the formulas usually dry out my lips. I was intrigued by a MAC ad for Powder Kiss lipstick (which featured a lovely girl using it as a blush and lipstick) and had to try it. It is described by MAC as a lipstick that gives a matte finish with the feel of a balm.

I've only worn this a few times, but it does seem worthy of the hype. It does feel like a balm and the color is a nice matte pink (I'm wearing A Little Tamed). It feels great on, unlike any other matte I've tried.

Because it does feel so nice, the lasting power isn't great. It did last through drinking a glass of water, but sticks around for about 2 hours on me. That's not unusual, though--lipsticks that last longer on me tend to dry out my lips. I'll gladly accept the burden of reapplying if it means that my lips won't end up dry and flaky.

A few others have commented on the scent being somewhat "rubbery," and I agree. It's definitely not the MAC vanilla scent that I'm used to. I don't notice any taste, however, and the scent isn't strong enough to irritate me.

So far so good. I wouldn't say that this is necessarily HG material or the best balm ever, but it does give me a matte look and I don't hate it. :) I might even check out other colors, although most of them seemed to be quite warm.

Liquid -MAC Cosmetics -Select SPF 15 Foundation

Overall, it is good due to high coverage.
But, it oxidises over time and becomes dry on my skin.
The packaging could come in a pump bottle instead of a normal bottle with a wide opening.
The price is a little too high for me.
I believe there are better alternatives in the market.


Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Powderkiss Mandarin O

on 10/12/2018 4:56:00 AM

This is a new kind of lipstick which MAC have only just introduced. It's a very light matte and feels lovely on but doesn't apply evenly, it applies patchily. The shade, Mandarin O, is quite like Tropic Tonic and Vegas Volt in the tube but on the lips it's a deeper pink.
The reason that I've scored it so low is that the staying power on the lips is dreadful. One coffee and it's gone without even a hint of colour left behind which is so disappointing.
I would not repurchase.

Moisturizers -MAC Cosmetics -Complete Comfort Creme

This is my HG moisturizer and the only thing I can use on my very sensitive skin. It has very little smell (if any), and goes on thicker than most creams. (I tend to like this, since I also have dry skin). I go through about one tub per month, so the price is a bit costly given that (They're around $42 CAD per container). MAC offers the "back to MAC" program so you can recycle your old containers and for every six, you get a free eyeshadow or lipstick.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Mirage Noir Lipstick - Goodbye Kiss

This is a limited edition MAC lipstick so I ordered it from Nordstrom's. It is a bit darker than my monitor shows on their website but I still like it very much. It is a darker pinkish, mauve, and purplish color. It is an amplified cream which is one of my favorite textures from MAC. I really enjoy the light vanilla fragrance and how creamy and moist it feels on my lips. It wears for a very long time without drying out my lips. This is a shade that I can wear this fall and even into Winter because it is not the light pink it shows on the website. I am happy with my purchase and now would love to have one more of this lineup, the darker purple one. You can see from the tube picture the color looks like a bubble gum pink but it is not. The picture of the lips is a better idea of the shade but it looks as though the girl put some gloss over the top of her lipstick. The second tube picture is more similar to the real color.

This concealer is my favorite from MAC. It does not move gives good coverage. I do not like the packaging and the shade selection should expand. I have to purchase 2 shades and that becomes expensive, however it does last a long time.


Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Retro Matte - Bronx

on 10/10/2018 3:22:00 PM

A very elegant nude which can also look fabulous when worn with a mocha-coloured lip pencil. Love the texture! Velvety and really long-wearing, dry but not drying or harsh on the lips. Hope it is a permanent shade!


Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Matte Lipstick - Russian Red

I own quite a few different red lipsticks, drugstore and high end. I wear matte red lipstick almost everyday, red is my "nuetral" and MAC Russian Red is the one I feel is most flattering, easiest to wear and on top of that, I get complimented on it the most.
I am pale with red hair and blue eyes, but I think this color and formulation would work on almost anyone! I usually apply a clear balm, then sometimes use MAC Cherry lipliner, then Russian Red. Sometimes I apply it with a lipbrush if I want a more sheer application. I own MAC Ruby Woo as well, but I much prefer Russian Red, theres something too 'bright' about Ruby Woo that makes it look out of place on me, where as Russian Red looks very vintage and deep, but not too dark, not too bright. It looks perfect and it is my HG lipstick.

I really love the texture of the lipsticks and their color is amazing. It stays on your lips for a long time, even while you eat. I love Ariana's makeup, and this is my fav look of hers: https://fashionpotluck.com/looks/ariana-grande-sweetener-album-cover-makeup-tutorial. That is why the plum shade of the lipstick is my fave, as it resembles so much to this look and is so Ariana-like!

Si vous êtes à la recherche d'une couverture légère, finition et un aspect dewy naturel cette fondation est parfait pour vous! Je suis béni avec assez peau claire que j'ai rarement en petits groupes / ne pas avoir de l'acné et j'adore cette base! Je n'ai noir entouré d'un cercle et quelques cicatrices et taches de rousseur qu'ils ne couvrent pas vraiment vous auriez à le construire pour répondre à la couverture souhaitée. Je le recommanderais pour la peau grasse.. n'hesiter pas les filles

This is my favorite foundation I've tried. I have very dry skin and most foundations look dry and cakey on me, while others look greasy. This one looks completely natural, not noticeable on the skin. That's how it feels too, totally lightweight, almost like you aren't wearing any foundation. It has a light coverage (although can be built up to medium), some imperfections do stay visible, but it evens out the complexion and covers redness. I have the shade C1. I would definitely recommend this product if you have dry skin and don't need much coverage.
