MY HG!!! I just think that the packaging should be improved. The lid tends to loosen from time to time and dry out the product. Other than that, I'm in LOVE.
Highlighters -MAC - Iridescent Powder - Belightful

I'm in LOVE with Belightful! People complain that it's way too glittery, but there's a secret on how to use it... If you want a highlight, you need to swipe the brush onto the skin. If you want more glitter, you dab it on instead. Works for me! :) I'm so sad they discontinued it! Once I hit pan with mine, I'll definitely swap something for a new one!
So I tried MAC's Matchmaster's foundation... And I believe it's my new HG foundation! I... LOVE... IT! The coverage is medium (I like higher coverage, but I find this one is still pretty good!), but still looks amazingly natural on the skin. I also love the fact that it dries with a velvety feel to it (it doesn't look oily if you don't set it, like other foundations!). You also get a lot of playtime with it, as opposed to Pro Longwear. I'm usually an NW18, which is only available in Studio Fix Fluid... And even though it's the closest match, I find the shade isn't always perfect, I need to mix products to acheive the perfect shade. I tried Matchmaster's 1.5, and you literally COULDN'T tell I was wearing foundation. The match was PERFECT, straight out of the bottle.... A dream come true! haha I *highly* recommend MM. I'm in love with it!
Treatments (Eye) -MAC - Prep + Prime Future Length Lash Serum

Started using my P+P Future Length Serum about 3 weeks ago... Noticed a HUGE improvement. My lashes are now more conditionned (I don't lose them when removing my makeup), fuller, and LONGER. I noticed the growth takes place especially on the outer corners, which really gives a cat-eye look to the eyes... Love it! (I uploaded the black & white picture above, if you want to see what I mean!) I use it twice a day, and it works wonders!
When I first visited the MAC Pro Store in Montreal, I absolutely fell in love with Show Orchid. I was automatically attracted to it, as it reminded me of my dearest ''Girl About Town''. The colour is gorgeous, texture feels great... One of my staples!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE SF Boldblack Lash! It is SO pigmented, makes my lashes look like I'm wearing falsies! The mascara itself is super creamy and lightweight, and doesn't flake or clump. My HG in mascaras! Definitely!
PROS : - Amazing smell! Slight citrus smell :) - Works WONDERS. I have black hair, and other dry shampoos usually end up making it look gray-ish. This one doesn't, and gets rid of any grease! - Allows me to sleep in an hour later in the morning! haha CONS : Despite the cute bottle, it tends to leak/evaporate. I had bought a BRAND NEW one from my hairstylist before leaving on a trip to Florida, last month. I used it ONCE, and left it at home when I went on my trip. When I got back, the bottle was completely *EMPTY*. I paid 20$ for it, and only got one use out of the whole bottle... Disappointing. I'll still buy it, though, since it's my HG in dry shampoos!
