Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Iridescent Pressed Powder - Delicacy

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/10/2008

When I first started applying makeup, I thought there were only eyeshadows, blushes and lipsticks. Years down the road, an MA at a MAC counter brought highlighters to my attention and my mind jumped to bright yellow BIC markers. But she handed me a sleek black compact full of a sheer white powder and tons of shimmer and I fell in love without even putting it on and bought it, taking it home with …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Crazed [DISCONTINUED]

Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2008

Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I could not get this blush to work for me. I applied it very, very, very lightly and still had to do a run of shame down my dorm hallway to get to the bathroom to rid myself of the manic-girl appearance. I didn't like like I'd been in the cold, I looked like I'd been in the cold shouting at someone. I did look genuinely crazed …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lipglass in clear

Jan/31/2008

If there's one sensation in the world that I despise, its sticky. I usually love MAC lipglosses so when I got this, I applied it happily...and HAD to run to the bathroom. Tissue wouldn't get it off, it just stuck dust to my lips so I had to brush my lips roughly on a towel to get this off me. I hated the feeling, I couldn't even see if it was decently shiny because I was …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Frost - Humid

Bought on a random whim. I'm actually very pleased with this little green wonder. I use this on the outer part of my lid and then Honesty on the inner part for a nice green/brown, forest-like coloration with Shroom as a highlighter. I find it to be very flattering. Its not an overwhelming green color and can easily be toned down, unlike some shadows that enjoy standing up and shrieking …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Veluxe - Beauty Marked

I bought Beauty Marked when I was just casually browsing the MAC counter. It looked so beautiful, sitting there. A gorgeous, sparkling currant-color. I was excited with my purchase but upon swiping it on my hand, it turned black. Flat, charcoal-like black. I was not thrilled, needless to say. I swapped it away immediately.
My coloring: Dark brown hair, golden eyes and pale, gold-toned skin.

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Dollymix

I'm in love with a little black compact and bright pink powder called Dollymix. This has become my new favorite blush!
I randomly swapped for it when I was approached with a request off my list and decided "oh, what the heck". When it arrived, I was a bit reeled by the brightness of the pink and more than a little hesitant to be wiping it on my cheeks, seeing as this was the …

Its a gorgeous color in the pan, but I agree with everyone here about exactly how much you have to apply for color to show up. I like glitter and shimmer so it doesn't exactly bother me but in other cases and blushes from MAC, you can get more instant results with colors like mocha and then add shimmer with a highlighter. But overall, I like the color of this blush and would buy again if I …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish - Light Flush [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Jan/16/2008

This is a very gorgeous looking MSF. In the pan, its a shimmery pink with veins of dark pink. Applied to my medium, gold-toned skin it looks very, very light and shimmery. The shimmer is actually more evident than the pink color, though there are traces of the pink. Its not very pigmented at all so it does hold true to being a member of the N/Neutral collection from MAC. Overall, its a great MSF …Read more

This is it, everyone. I have found a blush! I decided to stop trying to figure out my cheeks alone, a cold and painful journey, I might add, and stopped by the local MAC counter to chat with a MA. I told her I was looking for a nice, natural blush to compliment my golden-toned skin. She ran her fingers expertly over the blushes and snatched out...a bright orange. I instantly recoiled but she …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Snob Appeal

A very sheer, beautiful peachy-pink frost lipstick from MAC's 2007 Finery collection.
Personally, I'm not a lipstick gal. When its given to me, I give it away. I never use it, never. But this is beautiful on me! Its not a mess to put on and stays pretty well, too. It has some beautiful shimmer to it, too.
For someone who likes sheer things, this just adds to my collection. I …
