I waited a while to write a review on this because I kept hoping I could get this to work. After several tries though, despite my love of MAC Paint Pots, Blackground is a no go.

<p>
I was hoping this would be similar to my beloved Graphito paint, color wise it's slightly darker. But where this fails miserably is in performance & application. Compared to my …

Feb/26/2014

Overall, this is a great styling product for achieving separation & a piece-y look. This would work for just about any hair type. The only caution with this is that it's definitely the kind of product where "less is more", too much and your hair will have a greasy look. It took me a few tries to figure out the right amount needed to achieve a piece-y look without that …Read more

HELLO Holy Grail!! I've been devoted to Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Harder for years & decided to try this based on reviews, boy am I glad I did! This knocks Spray & Play out of the park!!

<p>

For starters, the nozzle doesn't clog constantly like Spray & Play, the hold is *incredible*, and the smell is divine!! This just became THE …

I both love & hate this product. It's wonderful at concealing undereye circles, and MAC has plenty of shades that I can see most people being able to find a match. This concealer performs & blends nicely. However, I loathe the packaging. The pump makes it impossible to control how much it dispenses, so a lot of people probably find that they're wasting product. The way I …Read more

Given my love for nude lipsticks, I had to pick this one up for my collection. The formula of Pure Zen is fabulous. This is a nice peachy nude & suits my NC40 skintone nicely. The color payoff is fantastic and it's perfect to pair with a smokey eye. While the color isn't really unique, it's definitely one I'm glad to have.

I'm stunned at the low reviews on this shade. It's beyond sexy! Chanel Taboo is a gorgeous dark wine/plum with micro-glitter. This shade is beautifully pigmented & applies like a dream. I use 2 coats & achieve full coverage. While the price of this polish is painful, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. Definitely one of my top 10 shades in my massive collection!

MAC Rocker, how I love thee.. This lipstick is SEXY. On my NC40 skintone this is a deep red leaning towards burgundy. This is stunning paired with simple eye makeup. I've usually use either Currant or Vino lipliner with this, or even Nightmoth if I want it to pull a little darker. This is a matte shade, so it wears forever. While it does have little bits of glitter in it, …Read more

MAC Vino is one sexy lipliner! I love using this with a variety of lipsticks, from Rebel to Diva & So Scarlet. It's a dark red with a little wine undertone. Applies beautifully & wears for hours. Definitely a staple in my collection!

One of my all time favorite lipliners!! MAC Currant is a dark wine color. Perfect to go with burgundy, wine or deep red lipsticks. Applies like a dream, richly pigmented & wears for hours. This is a step down in intensity from Nightmoth (another one of my favorites!). I adore this lipliner & use it often. A definite staple in my collection.

MAC Media is definitely a sexy lipstick. It's a deep matte burgundy/wine shade that fades to a sort of plum color. It's a satin, so the pigmentation & texture is fabulous. This isn't for the faint of heart. It's definitely a bold color but one that I can see working on many skin tones, from fair to tan. Perfect for a night out paired with a nude eye & a couple …Read more
