Truly White Hot!
I love this entire line of cosmetics, first off. This particular product exceeded all my expectations when it comes to loose pigments. The great thing about this product is that it works well with other products, but more importantly it is exactly what I need for developing new colors for my kit or just simply using it to highlight and tint other colors down or up. A little goes a long way, so it can last for ages. It's a standard product for most working make-up artists who like to mix and create colors, but a fun way for the average beauty junkie to get her creative juices flowing. Try it!
Set For Life!
I got this palette awhile back when I saw it in every working make-up artists kit. I decided I too should find out why everyone loves it so much. Starting with things that are basic when exploring a new line, the neutral palette seemed like a great start. Every eyeshadow in this palette is heavily pigmented, but not only do they blend beautifully together, they work well with other shadows. The palette came in a wide variety of textures, frost, matte etc. The pre-selected shades are variety of gold, cool browns, warm browns, rust, frosted beiges, cool blues and warm blues. They also worked well wet or dry which is a plus for me. The other amazing thing is the eyeshadows do pop out of the case and can be re-organized with other palettes that have a magnetic base. It takes some careful pulling and tugging, but does come out. I love it so much, I think you will too!
Color rich and truly matte!
I bought the freedom system to get a good range of colors to work with on shoots and test out color stories. This is a true matte eyeshadow, no shine no glitter particles just opaque color that can be applied as a light wash of color or packed on strong for intense color effects. Also very easy to blend!
Good, but must know how to use!
This product may have been re-developed since the days of earlier Mac. I use it to create a dewy and subtle finish to skin. Will not flatter skin used alone all over and not great for oily skin types.
The key is to use this in moderation and in the required areas or just in the high plains of the face.
Some of the time, I have mixed it with a liquid foundation to give me the soft lights finish to the skin.
I have worked with many facial primers and this one does the trick every single time for me. The main con for most primers is they leave the skin with a greasy feeling after or those beading of the product when worked into the skin. Remember, the reason for this is from a previous application of facial products without giving time for even your foundation to set first. A little goes a long way, squeeze a dime size amount and spread where needed. The product works, it's that simple.
