I really love this colour and I think it is truly unique. I couldn't believe it suits me due to my transparent skin tone but it is dramatic in a non-over the top way. I use either Subculture or Magenta liner with it. I love it with a warm brown grungy eye, my hair in a topknot and quite wispy lashes.

Mac describes it as a lavender violet. I think it more of a blue based mauve-dark …

This was my first ever Back To Mac and what a deal it was. I love it. I feel elegant and glam and a bit Dita-esque. It is matte which is my favourite type, it is vibrant, bold and stunning, no wonder it is such a good seller for Mac. It has been described as medium neutral under toned red but I do feel on me there is a blue tone in it. It is a darker colour than Ruby Woo and interestingly not as …Read more

I bought this because of Kim K mostly, despite vastly different skin tones. On me it is a mid-toned warm browny-beige.

I tried it with Creme Cup, Hue, Myth etc but it looks a little (bad) 90's i.e. darker liner than lipstick. If I use it all over my lips then it does change the lighter nudes and it can be nice but I think its easier to pull off with a tan.

However, I …

In the pan it is a pretty, pastel, pale, pink (oops a lot of alliteration) with a blue undertone that seems like Saint Germain for your cheeks. I find it quite difficult to get this colour to show up on me, even though I'm very pale. I have to really build this colour to make it noticeable on my cheeks and even then it could be described as subtle at best. I can imagine darker skin tones may …Read more

This was the first 'dark' MAC lipstick that I bought and I'm still in love with it. I even have the lipglass! I wear it with just a flicked cat eye liner and blush or with a more dramatic eye for a statement look. You could wear it with Vino, Current or Beet liner.

It is a Satin, which some people find drying, I don't have this issue. It is a deep raspberry with a …

Ruby Woo is my HG red. So I had to get this (I bought two). The idea of getting a Ruby Woo liner was the selling point for me but the Ruby Woo gloss was just the cherry on top!

For those of you that don't know Ruby Woo. It is a beautiful blue-based red. It is vivid and vibrant (think coke can red). It is a matte and it criticised for being very drying and hard to wear …

First off this was the first of Mac's Holiday Collection that I bought and I have to say I almost screamed with delight at the black glittery compact top with black pearls around it. A goth/metalhead girls's dream, like me.

How would I describe this mini-palette (each shadow is 0.014 oz)? It is like an eight eyeshadow palette version of the Objects of Affection Beige/Gold …

This is one of three of Mac's Keepsake Eyes for their Holiday Collection. It is a lot smaller than I thought. It has cream glitter packaging with pearls around the side. There are three shimmery shades four mattes and one with a very slight shimmer. They range from a silvery white to Mac's cult black, Carbon. It is a compact and has a decent sized mirror and a two sided mini-applicator …Read more

This, in my opinion is the nicest product in MAC's Holiday Collection. As I have blue/grey eyes I love golds, browns and bronze eye shadows. It's like a mini Naked Palette but with four pigments and one glitter pot, each 0.9oz.

The lightest colour Lithe is a light cream, beige, gold pigment with a shimmer to it, perfect for inner corner and under brow …

Had this long before the Kylie Jenner lip obsession or 90's browny comeback. However, I love not being the only person to wear this now. It's beautiful on it own or with faux, brave, twig, blankety and even snob lipsticks. It is a pinkish brown and it feels lovely on the lips. It is such a universal shade that I think it could be used with a lot of different lipstick and lipgloss shades …Read more
