Body suit looked totally different in the tube as on the lips. This lippie washed me out, and made my lips look rather dead. A very frosty shade, this imo is more suitable for cooler skintones. The shade is a very frosty nude almost like a true light mauve on me. I was excited for this, but the shade dissapointed me. Surprisingly, for a lustre, this l/s was rather drying. I would not repurchase and have swapped mine away.
I was lemming for sharp beige even before it's release. I was however afraid it might turn out like body suit which turned out horrible on me, making me look so washed out. I bought this and tried it only to realise it's so pretty! A brownish mauve nude that is oh so gorgeous :) This is very different from hug me imo. Hug me is more of a pinky peach nude, and much lighter, but this is slightly darker. In comparison with entwined, which is more brown nude... there is still alot of difference between them. This is a gorgeous nude, and i will repurchase. Again, this is LE :( So do stock up on this one! For reference, I'm a NC42 (GGG)
Strawberry blonde is a gorgeous star product MAC has come up with imo. It's a beautiful shade of coral pink. Since this is a lustre formula, colour goes on sheer yet glossy. It's not drying compared to other mac non-lustre lipsticks and is a perfect face brightener. At first the bright colour gave me the perception that it may look over the top but once i tried it on, i realised u can never judge a book by its cover. This is truly an amazing lipstick. Trick is not to use it direct from the tube or it'll look too bright. Dab little by little on ur lips using a lip brush and it will turn out perfect. No lip liner needed. I would repurchase. Bad news is this is LE and is oos at my counters, so it shows this is a popular sought after product. For reference, Im a NC42. (GGG) Update: I got a backup for this coz this is HG material. Now, MAC has to make this permanent!
Eye Shadow -Black Radiance - Loose Shimmer Shadow - Silver Fox

This was a birthday gift from a lovely muaer friend. I was so excited to get this at first but I never managed to find an opportunity to wear it. One week ago I tried this on and oh wow, i was so impressed. As the name suggests, this is a beautiful extremely shimmery silver almost taupe shade. It really is a wonderful shade that makes my brown eyes pop. I will use this all over my lids all the way up to the lids and use a highlighter on the browbone. I will line my rims with blacktrack fluidline(mac) and im ready to go. This is an absolute must have. I am very much in love with this because the pigmentation and lasting power is awesome. Would definitely repurchase :)
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
haseena 2/3/2006 2:47:00 PM
Blacktrack is my staple and HG. I use it everyday to line my lower rims and to line my eyes. I highly recommend this if you are looking a a TRUE black that does not turn grey or blue over the hours. This stays true black throughout the whole day and has lasted me through gym, the shower after that (yes i showered with my makeup on after gym lol), and through a humid long day out in the sun. The only thing I have not done with this on is swimming but i bet it's gonna stay put then too. The jar that holds this liner is really cute and the product will last u a long long time so it's worth every penny. Would repurchase & repurchase. Great product by MAC. Keep it up MAC, just don't discontinue this *ever*! Update: I'm on my 4th jar now!
I finally got my first bronzer and i have started to regret why i never started using them earlier. Casino is a gorgeous bronzed brown that looks great on my GGG NC42 skintone. Excellent pigmentation and this makes me look really up and awake. I am happy to have made the choice of making CASINO my first blush. All thanks to the lovely ladies who recommended this to me. For gals who are darker, try this one instead of Laguna. This will work great on u :) Will repurchase and will die if this is discontinued :( lol
After reading all the good reviews on this, I decided to get one. I wanted to love this so bad but it was a dissapointment. First of all, it caked on me creating a horribly unnatural look. I also found it rather dry thus i had to tug with this which is bad. Im looking for something creamier. This also caused outbreaks on my forehead & caused milia under my eyes. It did a good job in covering dark circles but the bad points are hard to forego. This also has a think layer of moist over it overnight. Might be the change of temperature. I have more than 3/4 left, and have stopped since. This will help in my B2Ms hehe. Will not repurchase.
Oh I ♥ lovejoy. It is an absolute keeper for me. It's two in one, a blush and bronzer for me. A beautiful bronzey rosy pink, that shouts gorgeous! :) I am glad i got this one, after considering these among others. I must admit Nars make the world's best blushes which are infused with great pigmentation. However, it is necessary to blend the blush well or else it'll look clownish(applies to all blush). Other than that, they're great! Will repurchase :)
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat [DISCONTINUED]
haseena 2/3/2006 5:23:00 AM
I wanted to get both Naked you & petticoat but when i saw both irl, i feel head over heels for Petticoat. It looked too good. On my NC42 GGG skintone, this turned out a beautiful shimmery rosy pink shade. Perfect in making me look fresh! :) This will last me a long long time as it's huge. It also looks very pretty. Too bad it's LE :(
I'm in love with SIN. This shows up as a berry w/ gold shimmer on me. I'm officially making this my HG blush. I love to pair this with Casino bronzer or alone. It's such a stunning colour, and i only regret why i did not get this earlier! I'm a NC42 GGG, thus i was told not to get the orgasm but to get this instead. I'm glad i did. This is highly pigmented, thus a little goes a long way. U might need a skunk brush for nars blushes. Will definitely repurchase.
I'm probably one of the very few who does not like Lovely Lily. I found it very flat for my taste and it didn't really look that unique to me. I guess it's just me, I don't really have a liking for lavenders/lilacs but after all that raves, I decided to get one. However much I tried, I couldn't get it to work for me. Somehow it always turned out dull or boring on me. I much much prefer Goldenaire to this one.
I decided to switch to studio fix after a MAC makeover as i was impressed with the results. I got mine in NC42, and am currently very happy with it. Doesn't gives the maximum coverage but I'm happy with it as it does not look like i have too much of foundation on. I use this with a foundation brush instead of the sponge. I find using a sponge creates a cakey look so i prefer brushes. Will repurchase until i find a better one for me. :)
Of all the body butters I have tried so far, this is by far the best. It isn't too greasy and absorbs into my skin almost instantly without giving me a sticky after feeling. I also love the smell which is extremely soothing and fresh to me. I highly recommend this to be used after shaving, as this smooths ur skin like silk. Even my SO complimented how smooth my skin was. This is especially good for those with very dry skin like myself. Would repurchase! :)
Prunella is a gorgeous plummy purple kohl pencil perfect for smoky eyes. If you're looking for something that would'nt smudge, this isn't the stuff for you. If i choose to use this for just a liner, I make sure i use a black liner as a base as this will not last very long. For a smoky look, i'll pair this with a dark taupe on lids and prunella lined and smudges. I also will add a similar shade e/s (eggplant purple will work too) on my crease as well as a highlighter on browbone. Would repurchase.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner - Mullet
haseena 1/25/2006 2:50:00 AM
I have an interest in glitter liners, and by far Mullet is one of the prettiest among all the others i own. Compared to other glitter liners, this is a single coloured glitter liner in the shade of a beautiful green. The green isnt too dark nor light but just in the middle. I love to use this over regular liner or even alone as the pigmentation is dense enough to create an obvious line over my lash line. The glitters can cause eye irritation so be very careful when applying and makde sure u don't put it too close to your tear duct. I would definitely repurchase this one if I run out. If you are looking to get your first glitter liner, I'd highly recommend this one! :)
