I LOVE this stuff. I was looking through the skin care line at MAC I thought I'd give this a shot. I like that it comes in a tube, not a jar or something unsanitary. I use this bout 2-3 a week and my skin is so smooth, my skin tone has a natural wonderful sheen to it and an even colour. Leaves skin absolutely glowing and radiant. The beads wont hurt if u do gentle circular movements, and only a little bit is needed. Doesn't look like alot but it sure as hell works. I bought this for 27CAN, which isnt bad considering this will probably last a long time for me. this product is ESSENTIAL if you travel, all that dirt and grime can leave a film on your face, and this sheds it completely.
Another MAC purchase that i got recently was the cheekhue. i was so mad when they d/c factory. so i bought this one which is relatively close to it. a very bright almost fuchia like pink, but goes on very light when you dab a little on the cheeks. you can also use this on your lips, but very little of it should be applied. for 21 CAN, it seems stingy but honestly when have you ever needed to use alot of something from MAC? seriously. this tube will last you a lifetime!!! the packaging is like the MAC paints, this is the paint for the cheek. goes on smooth and lasts for hours.
WOW! the perfect highlighter for the face. in the summer, when its so hot and you dont feel like wearing any making, put this stuff on ur face and it instantly gives you that glow. amazing product. i use this on top of my makeup where the sun would naturally hit, or you could even put this all over your face and it would still look good. theres no shimmer in it really, just...a glow O_o. a bit pricey but a little does go a long way, like with any other MAC product. MAC rules. period.
Hm despite the bad reviews of this on here, it's really not all that bad. dont expect this cream to get rid of your dark circles. with ANY eye product, once you stop using it all the benefits go away. this did lighten my circles up a bit, i dont have noticeable circles but darkness around the tear duct. it does make my skin VERY smooth and concealer glides right on. no smell, very light in texture and the squeeze bottle lets you control the amount that you put on. it's a little pricey for what you get, but a little goes a long way.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blitz and Glitz
juujubez 8/18/2005 12:03:00 AM
I stopped buy the MAC counter AGAIN (for like the 50th time this month) and wanted to try out some of their new products. Along with some other purchases, i wanted to get fluidline in blacktrack. but of course, it was sold out. so the MA suggested this one instead, which is similiar. this colour is gorgeous, it is still black, but a lighter shade with TINY specks of gold shimmer all throughout. you dont notice the shimmer until u actually dip ur brush into it and pick up some product. this colour is perfect for the daytime and can be punched up for a night out. very very versatile. in the light you can see the shimmer a bit, if you want to buy this product thinking that the shimmer would really show, don't because it is very very subtle. definitely no your average black, more of a charcoal colour, with metallic properties. very stylish packaging and you get alot of product for what you pay for.
I bought this along with my purchase of fluidline. this brush is amazing, it lines the eyes with perfect precision, makes the fluidline glide right on. NO tugging, nothing. the fine hairs on the brush are firm , but not stiff.this in comparison with the angled brush is so much better. i wonder why the MA even recommended the other one to me ... O_O it didnt seem to fit.
Hm, this is another lipgloss that MAC launched. This colour looks fabolous in the tube, when when applied on its only a sheer wash of barely there colour. the texure is of a gel-like consistency and its not sticky. it does moisturize my lips nicely though. But compared to lipglass, this doesnt stack up. i do love the colours and texture, but i wouldnt repurchase again, i guess this was a one time thing for me . :S It smells absolutely heavenly though!
This is the first pigment that ive bought from MAC, and its from their rebelrock collection. i think this colour was re-released and is now an LE. This colour is GORGEOUS! a true vivid blue, very bright and not sure if i would wear this everyday , but mixed with other products and colours it can be toned down for the day. but this looks amazing over the lids at night, very beautiful. its not the trashy blue that you see people wear sometimes *ahem*, but a true blue, that has a metallic sheen to it. the whole jar will last you a lifetime plus another. its crazy.
I bought this during a recent trip to my local MAC counter. Im an obsessed fan with MAC and i was looking for something that had more staying power on my eyes. Paints was the way to go and i picked up this colour. Im NC42 and this colour is absolutely gorgeous. A very nice pale yellow-green laced with gold shimmer in it. it can be paired with other paints and e/s to create amazing looks. It honestly stays on forever until you decide to take it off, i even slept in it one time and i woke up with it uncreased. The tube will last u a lifetime, you only need a TINY amount depending on the intensity you want with it. The tube is like the one they use for the Cheekhues. Great product i wish they had more colours tho :S oh well. definitely would repurchase
i have been searching for the perfect concealer for ages. Im a NC42 (asian with a golden tan) and this concealer works amazing. The MUA suggested this lighter one compared to the darker shades for more coverage. i dont have dark undereye circles but rather dark in the outer and inner corners. this brightens it up, it has a smooth creamy consistancy which is great and easy to blend. when used with a concealer brush or wedge it provides even coverage. a dab will do ya.
I bought this recently becuz i wanted to expand my collection of MAC products. It looks very pretty in the tub, a med. pink with silver sparkles in it. When applied, it looks pretty with my brown eyes and NC42 skin, and yes, it may tend to look light so a slightly heavier hand is needed. the sparkles isnt a problem if u jus lightly brush them off with a brush. this can be paired with other shadows to create amazing looks, i like aquadisiac and this together.
Lip Gloss -Estee Lauder - Pure Pops Brush-on Color 'Berry Twist'
juujubez 7/1/2005 1:10:00 AM
Hm, im pretty impressed with this product by Lauder. I tend to not like the texture of their other glosses so i tend to stay away from this line :S but when these came out the colours looked gorgeous especially this one. it goes on sheer or deep, and this colour is true to the colour in the tube. very soft, shiny plump lips after applied. the texture is amazing, even though it has shimmer in it you cant feel it in the lips. the smell is to die for. yummy. and the big tube will last u forever.
I bought this one two days after i bought my first lustre (im showing signs of addiction already *sigh*) this shade is a pink-berry, almost deep plum colour but goes on sheer. it gives you that 'just bitten' look, very natural looking, with a soft shine to it. it can be very sheer when applied with a light hand, but you can deepen the colour if you wish. like any lip product out there, it can be revved up by a thin layer of clear lip glass XD
A very nice sheer pink-lilac colour, which when used with clear lipglss over top, completely amplifies the colour! I never buy lipsticks, but i kinda wanted to try something new and i was getting tired of hair sticking to my usual lipglass. so i bought a lip stick from the lustre line...and now im addicted!this imparts a beautiful shine, not glossy, not matte, just perfect for summer! great packaging too!
Mascara -Maybelline - XXL volume+length microfiber mascara
juujubez 2/20/2005 2:39:00 PM
The first time I put on this mascara, I had some trouble with it clumping all over the place. After a few trys Ive mastered it enough to be able to do it all in less than 1 minute. You really need to develop a no-brainer routine for this one, unless u want to spend 5 mins on ur eyelashes. It comes in a 2 end mascara wand, one with the microfibre and the other iwht the actual mascara. It has a noticeable effect on my lashes and really makes them longer nad fuller. Would repurchase.
