This is the one lipstick I knew I wanted & so glad I bought. Such a pretty bronze(not an orangey bronze) w/ what looks like to me multi-colored pearl. Darker than I thought it would be, looks great with Emancipation or Secret Identity l/g over it too. Didn't have one like this so I was glad to get this one. I agree that it feels so creamy & smooth too.
Blush -MAC - Wonder Woman blush in Mighty Aphrodite
makeupcrazy31 2/19/2011 1:35:00 AM
This is what I wanted Ripe Peach to be on me. I know it's been compared to RP but on me RP didn't look good, pulled out orange on me. Where as Mighty Aphrodite has pink in it to work for me. I actually wasn't going to buy it, but when I saw it I had to try it on & I absolutely love it! The perfect peachy/pink blush I've been looking for. About the packaging, I didn't think I would like but I love it! I think it's cute & funny . It's not supposed to be serious or classy it's simply Wonder Woman. I loved Wonder Woman as a kid & so it kinda brings me back & I love the fact that MAC does all kinds of collections. People are always going to love or hate it. But it does seem like MAC has a sense of humor & I love them for it! The bottom line is most of all I love the blush that's in it so even if I didn't like the compact I would have still bought it.
I really like this color, a nice neutral without washing me out. It's even better with the cremesheen gloss you've got it over it, so pretty! Like how moisturizing & creamy it feels too.
This is imho a very wearable purple, because you can easily control how sheer or not you want it to be. Actually I can see it being a great base for alot of the l/g like Boys go Crazy d/g. I can't wait to play!:) I've been looking for a purple that was purple, not berry not to blue/black toned. This is perfect for me, so I do hope they make it permanent. I would definitely buy again.
I didn't care for this one on me. Turned orangish on me or muddy. Tried to wear just as a blush, as bronzer & finally contoured with blush on the apples. Didn't like it at all.:( I much prefer my Solar Riche bronzer. I thought this would be a really perfect neutral bronzer, but maybe it has too much yellow in it for me or something? Who knows but I started to get carried away in the hype of these things & when really the only one that looks good on me is Azalea Blossom(which I love!). So if you can try them on & really wear them around to make sure they don't change colors on you.
I LOVE this blush!!! I love how it looks in the compact but unlike Ripe Peach I love how this one looks on me too!:) I'm a purple lover & I like how you can go from using the pink side or mixing with the purple. This is my favorite pink blush that I have by far! Hope that they re-promote in the future would buy again if I run out. That is if I ever do, these are huge (size of msf).
Blush -MAC - Blush Ombre - Ripe Peach [DISCONTINUED]
makeupcrazy31 2/20/2010 1:14:00 PM
I seem to be 1 of the only ones who didn't care for Ripe Peach at all. It turned a very orangey/red on & I tried all kinds of brushes & ways to make it work. I much prefer Springsheen or Nars Deep Throat. I thought I would love it because even Optimistic Orange creme blush worked for me, love that one. But this one unfortunately looked terrible on me. It's gorgeous in the compact though, but that was it. Azalea Blossom however is awesome imo. I don't understand the hype on Ripe Peach at all, but that is only because it didn't work for me.:( *Edit to add: FYI I no longer have this blush & haven't for a long time. It's now July 2012 & I can't believe I'm still getting e-mails to see if I still have it & can swap it or give it. So again I know longer have it.
This is so pretty! It's what I wanted to Snowgirl to be, but wasn't. This is frosty white gloss with fine multi-dimensional pearl that just sparkle so pretty when it hits the light. Great for layering over lipsticks or I really like it even alone. Really works well for a frosty pretty look with pinks & grays that they pair it with. This I may have to get a back up for, because imo it's unique.
This is one of the worst n/p I've gotten in a long time. Like others have said this is sooo streaky! I usually only have to put on on 2-3 coats to even out a somewhat streaky polish. This was still streaky on the the 3rd coat! It's a pretty nude/peach but I was disappointed too, that it wasn't like the color on the promo picture. You can get this color in many other lines much cheaper & with out all the streaking. I usually love MAC n/p (the colors are so fun) this one is the absolute worst unfortunately.:(
Another HG from this collection for me. It's a neutral pink, with slight mauve tint to it on me. I love the creamy texture to these & the staying power is great! I would buy again, as I can see using this one alot.
I really like this color & formula. Nice & creamy, also lasting power is great imo. The color to me is a beige w/ slight peach to it, I wear Stripdown l/l with it. I'm not as crazy about it w/out the liner, I need that bit of color w/ this lipstick(hope that makes sense). This is my favorite HG nude lippie. I'm so glad it's not LE, would definitely buy again!
Blush -NARS - Deep Throat Blush and Striptease Lip Gloss Set
makeupcrazy31 9/30/2008 1:01:00 PM
Love the blush, hate the gloss. The blush is just a pretty flush of peach, reminds me of MAC's Springsheen. I do like that better, so probably won't buy this color again. The gloss I like the color but...I just can't get this to look good on. At first I thought it was workable, not so. It feels like glue & hard to stay even w/out streaking, then when I got it to not streak there's so much on that when I open my mouth the gloss globs all over. No wonder it's been in my drawer for awhile, now it's in the garbage. Would not buy another NARS lipgloss again, unless formula was not so thick & sticky. Back to my favorite, MAC.
I gave this a 2 because every one that I get of these crumble around the edges after the 1st use! They are beautiful & they remind me of MAC's slimshines, but the fact that they crumble making them unusable to me. I have re-purchased too many times hoping it was a fluke & having the same thing happen over & over. I will not re-purchase unless they re-formulate a more stable lipstick.
This is such a gorgeous blush! I have a lot of blushes but nothing in this shade. To me it is unique in color. You only need a tiny amount to get such a pretty flush. The gold in it just give subtle shimmer. I was worried about it being too red, but it's not at all. I have been wearing this daily, it quickly has become my favorite blush. I love the texture too, better even their regular blushes (and I love their reg. blushes). Now I'm waiting for Gentle & Gleeful. I'm NW20 for reference.
I was so excited to get this duo, because I love purples. But I'm disappointed in this, I thought the purple side would be more vibrant than it is. I was expecting sort of a periwinkle purple. I really have to use alot to show up. The other side is a really pretty neutral. This one does have alot of fallout on me too, which doesn't bother me that much. Just wished the purple was more pigmented & brighter. Not a keeper for me unfortunately.:( I would buy again, in another color though. Edited to add: I added another lippie, I'm determined to love this eyeshadow.;) I put more of the purple on & it went on better. Maybe I just had to get through the first layer? We'll see...
