Highlighters -MAC - Prep + Prime Highlighter Pen (Radiant Rose)
Fibergash6 4/6/2011 2:47:00 PM
This is a great brightening/highlighter pen. It's very similiar to YSLs touché éclat, but I have to say I do prefer this. I applied macs radiant rose on my left undereye and YSLs touché éclat in #1 on the other undereye. Macs radiant rose definitley brightened my eyes more. And it's like half the price of YSLs. I will def continue to buy this as long as it's around
Love this gorgeous purple lippie! It's similiar to Macs Up the Amp but has more pink to it. The creemsheen formula works great, it's pigmented and glossy, I really love this! Definitley my favorite out of the collection.
The product itself is a purple/pale lavender blush with a magenta heart in the middle. Most people would think they wouldn't be able to pull off a purple blush, but this barely applies actual purple on my nw30 skin. Besides the fact it's very sheer, very powdery, this applies like a pink blush. It applies like a light/medium pink blush with slight cool undertones. Not what I was expecting at all, I wanted PURPLEY blush. Macs coygirl blush is more purple than this. Pretty packaging, but essentially a waste of money IMO.
Not the easiest color to bull off. It's a very PALE lavender color with slight pink undertones. I can't see this working on warm toned people or people of darker skin. On my nw30 skin it washes me out a little slighty, but I guess I just have to work with it. Even though its creemsheen, it's pretty sheer, it takes alot to buildup. I think I'd do it with heavy smokey purple eyes and maybe use the plushglasd equivalent over it.
Holy crap. This is the creamiest matte ive encountered. And the color. Holy crap. Very fushia pink, very bold, and makes one hell of a statement. If you're going to wear this, wear light pink/nude blush and nuetral or very simple nude eye make up. This lipstick is just POP. It reminds me of tweens in the 80s who can't do makeup. But with the right other makeup applied, it can work. This had very heavy purple undertones, so if you have yellow undertones I'd try it before buying it. This is definitley NOT for the faint-hearted. It wears for 4-5 hours, and when it fades it leaves a nice pink tint left. Would totally buy again. Try it first at the counter though, it may be too much for some people!
I'm just one of those brown girls that cannot wear any shade of reds. But a a dark purpleish-reddish lipstick like this looks amazing on me. Very elegant, sophisticated, vampyish look. It's creamy and it's my HG "red" color. I'm nw30 with highly pigmented lips. This lippie is just gorgeous. I'm normally into lighter shades, but everyone needs one red/darkish lippie for an elegant event.
Really love this color, bold pink and is very very creamy!! But it's not an original color, very dupable. Probably won't repurchase because its so bold and easy to dupe. Finish is great and long lasting, and extremely pigmented
Eyeliner -MAC - Penultimate Eye Liner - Rapidblack

Surprised at the mixed ratings. I love pen-type eyeliners, it's so easy to create an extremely thin line or winged line. I store this upside-down so it won't dry out too fast. It's very black too. I don't know if I would buy again because of the price. ELF has the same exact thing for $1 and in different colors too, but they tend to dry out within 2-3 months of daily use, but for a dollar, hell that's alot better than buying penultimate for $18? amd that drying out in 2-3 months.
Er....the satin finish is extremely drying but it's quite pigmented which isn't the best thing with a very bright bold hot pink with very heavy purple undertones. Reminds me of pink Friday. This is going back to the store, looks trashy on my nw30 skin. :/
Love the color, very versatile. Hate the packaging, incredibly dissapointing packaging.
Looooove this! I have a backup in my purse at all times, I'm always sleeping over at my boyfriends and don't like carrying a whole kit of makeup with me to get ready in the morning. This and some black eyeliner (simple or heavy) is perfect to go along with this. It brightens up your face and is really wearable during the day. This is pretty blue based, so if you're an NC I'd try it at the counter first. I'm an nw30 and love this for a quick cute look! It's a lustre, pigmentation is ok, lasts about 2-4 hrs. Lipglass not neccesary!
Lipstick -MAC - Sheen Supreme Lipstick - Ultra Darling

This is such a lovely pinky medium watermelon color! The formula is awesome, it has a great sheen and is moisturizing so it doesn't accentuate lines or flakies. The opacity is ok, I'd say medium, and the staying power isn't that great. But the less matte a lipstick, the less it stays put usually. I'd say 2-4 hrs w no to very little eating/drinking. You certainly do not need a lipglass over this so it's a great investment IMO.
This is a gorgeous dark purple/wine/vampy lipstick. It's dark, elegant and sophisticated. It's a frost but doesn't look frosty at all. Doesn't accentuate dry lips and is a must have for any purple lipstick lovers. Released with the Jeanius collection (March 2011). Check out the swatches, the color is just breathtaking.
Lip Gloss -MAC - Kissable Lipcolour in Flaunting It

I really am in love with Mac kissables, I have 5 of em. This is def my favorite color out of all of them, I haven't found any dupes exactly this color. it's a purple- with some pinkish undertones. This isn't for nuetral lovers or the faint hearted. It's not that over the top either, but if you like purple lips, get this. I can never pull of any reds with my olivey nw30 skin color. IMO reds don't look right on even Kim or Kourtney kardashian. It just doesnt look quite right with us ethnic medium skinned girls. Purples look great on me though. I think everyone can wear this, if they're not scared of a little edginess of course. It's very pigmented and applies smoothly like the other kissables. I really hope Mac brings these back or make them permanent, they really are AMAZING. Its liquid lipstick, the texture is light and shiny when first applied but after it dries after a couple of minutes, it will not budge, they last quite long and still have the shine factor. BRING EM BACK, MAC!!!!
I LOVE these. I really hope Mac brings them out again or makes them permanent. Thus and enchantee are my favorites. This is a nude color and looks awesome with my nw30 complexion. Saves me the trouble if carrying both lipstick and lipglasses with be as well since it is SO pigmented and moisturizing as well as a glossy finish. The lasting power is ok, provably 3-4 hrs with no eating or drinking. Even when my lips are a dry flaky patchy mess, this hides the imperfections & still looks awesome.
