Cary R.'s Beauty Product Reviews
like it not LOVE it
Let's start by saying that I was surprised that there were so many people with positive feedback about these lipsticks to me not all the lipsticks are impressive.
Some were cakey, others you can barely see and others where beautiful. I've uploaded a pic with the lipsticks on the lips with each name.
they are not sticky
go on smooth
cheaper than retail
they don't smell bad
Some lip colors are cakey and in my photo you will see which one's I'm talking about
too many that are pink (light pink (eekkk)
not enough variety of what you would expect in 11 different shades
not long lasting (no lip liner but i did use a lip primer)
sets in the lines of your lips
I would really give it a 3.5/ out of 5 but i think a 3 would be unfair and a 4 would be too generous...hmmm.. let me use them for a little bit and I may change my mind..
one of my favorite MAC products
Pros- they glide on SMOOTH... very nice when they go one and as soon as they go on they set and dry. Not a sticky dry, it sets as a powder dry. Stays all day. No creasing or smudging and can be used as an eyes hadow primer.
Cons- hard for pigmented loose eye shadow to stick at times.
I would definitley recommend these to anyone. My favorite is the Indianwood it's like a shiny dark gold/metallic color. The painterly is a very matte color no glitter. can be used as a good base. Bare study is like a pearl shiny white.
really like it, not in LOVE with it
Pros- I love how it glides on the skin and feels so smooth as if you have nothing on. I have PCOS so I have what some may call a 6 o clock shadow? is that right? anyway... I get that in the afternoon and as long as I use the primer this stays on most of the day.
Cons- not full coverage... I can still see my pores, small pods, slightly expensive. the brushes fall apart within the first few uses.
all in all i give it a 4/5 it is smooth and looks good. i just use a small amount of another product for full coverage
All I have to say was wow!
Pros- they glide on smooth, after 5 seconds of it being on the skin they dried up quickly and even after rigorously rubbing them, they did not smudge. they look wonderful. The more loud of the bunch is the blue which is VERY glittery and then the purple. They are all loud colors but the lighter browns are more subdued.
Cons- they are small.... since i really like these I wish they were larger.
All in all I give it 5/5 Love them!
Great for Fair skin
Pros-Beautiful shade for fair skin!
It blends very well with the skin. It does not feel cakey, goes on smooth and looks really beautiful. It will last you for a few months. It's from a company who doesn't test on animals :)
Cons- It's a little expensive 13$ at MAC and doesn't stay on ALL day... it comes off after a few hours.
All in all I give it a 4.5/5 ... a good buy.
I really do like it!
Pros- Arrived quickly, beautiful colors, Very vibrant colors. The brush works well and doesn't hold on to excess eye shadow. The neutrals are very nice and work well in combination with the darker colors.
Cons- most of the colors in the palette are VERY shiny not very many matte colors. So if you are a bold type of gal like me then you'll wear them anywhere and no exactly how to pair it correctly without having to look too exotic. When you use the brush to get the color be careful not to "rub" too hard because a lot of it comes out.
All in all it's a great palette. Very nice colors and with the urban decay primer it stays all day without creasing!
I would buy the naked 2 next time around.
