The perfect lid colour I've been looking for but...
...it creases. Bummer.
I've been on the hunt for a super easy wash of colour for my eyes. Like, slap it on with some mascara and hit the door, kind of shade.
I described this to the sales associate and after a few swatches of the paint pots, she turned to the cream color bases and suggested Root.
It truly is the perfect colour I was looking for (an everyday, natural... your lids but better... kind of shade). It was ridiculously easy to put on with a finger and looked gorgeous with a teeny bit of dark brown shadow to line the outer third of my lash line.
I have oily lids and use a primer which works like a dream when I am using powders, but even with primer this creased on me. I will try to set it with some translucent powder and see how it goes next time.
I will say that a quick rub to blend it out when it creases does bring it back to the perfect wash. The trouble is having to think about that and do it. Grrr.
Basic cream bronzer
I have the shade mid tone sepia which is basically a really red toned brown color. I like to use this to contour my face in the winter time when my face is super dry. But in the warmer days, it feels a little too heavy on my skin and I would sweat it off. But overall, it's a nice natural looking color that lasts pretty long when its not humid or hot, and it doesn't look orange at all. I also sometimes use it as a cream eyeshadow or gel eyeliner obviously over a primer or else it'll crease like crazy!
This was bought as a present by my brother, if I had got the chance to go and buy it myself I would have bought pearl to use as a highlight. I've only had one bad experience with this product and I don't know why to be honest, I applied it on a little bit of powder and it made my makeup look patchy - not sure why! But when I'm in the sun in Spain it will be the perfect highlight!
Gives me a glowing complexion!
I love the color pearl. I use it as a highlighter, and it gives my face that lovely glowing look I've always been looking for. It is so easy to apply. You just sweep it across your cheek bones and you instantly look awake and ready for the day!
I have two of these but I forgot the names of them but I love the product I like to use it before my foundation and I like to apply a small amount. I would love to get more shades
I got this in "Madly Magenta" today at my CCO and let me tell you I absolutely love it, gorgeous on the lips if you lightly pay it on its like a pretty stain or you can layer it on and get rich color, it's also a really cute blush if you use it lightly. I'm so excited, I want to go back and get the "Tickle Me Pink"
I'm a bit upset to find that they are discontinuing Fabulush because that's one of my go-to summer blushes. Pearl is something I wear on a regular basis and is totally a product I will be purchasing for the rest of my life. My mom loves it too! I wish I could wear these on my lids, but alas, they are too oily, even with primer. LOVE these so much!
I am a huge fan of cream color bases because they are such a great multi purpose product. I own pearl, shell, hush, pink shock and seaside and I love all them. I love to use them as highlighters mostly. I have tried using them as eyeshadow bases but they always end up creasing on me even though I have really dry eyes.
My fav highlighter for a gorgeous glow!
I love how easy this cream MAC hightlighter is to use, it blends so well into cheekbones and under brow bones for a gorgeous sculpted glow! I love 'Pearl', perfect for pale skin and dark skin. I highly recommend this highlighter for everyday use and for photoshoots. It looks great on camera!
