My Holy-Grail foundation!
This foundation retails for $29.50 US and about $31.00 CAD. In this product you get 30 ml / 1.0 US fl oz. It also contains SPF 10. Mac claims this foundation is; A long-wear foundation that gives up to 15 hours of wear in any environmental condition. Lightweight and creamy, applies smoothly to provide sheer to medium coverage. Even in hot and humid conditions, controls oil to keep skin fresh, natural and flawless. Provides everyday SPF protection. I am currently on my 3rd bottle of this foundation and will definitely be repurchasing yet again when I run out. One bottle will last you quiet some time, and the coverage is great. On my skin; this foundation does exactly what Mac says it will. Since it is not a full coverage foundation, it allows for your natural skin to shine through while evening out your skin tone, covering acne scaring, and providing you with SPF. Although it is a sheer to medium coverage foundation, it is definitely buildable. It applies very smoothly, and blends into my skin flawlessly. I use this in addition with my Mac Pro Longwear Concealer as well as my Mac Mineralized Skinfinish Natural to achieve my desired flawless look, and it never disappoints me. Well worth the money, my Holy-Grail foundation.
Great colour selection!
I own all three Wet N Wild Colour Icon Palettes; Petal Pusher (Purples), Blue Had Me At Hello (Blues), and Comfort Zone (Neutrals). All shadows need to be worn with a base; whether it be a MAC paint pot, Urban Decay Primer Potion, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, etc for best results. These palettes vary in price depending on where you live, and where you purchase them. But you can normally find them for anywhere between $4.50-$7.00 CAD. Petal Pusher is my least favorite of the three; there is more fall out in this palette in comparison to the other two, and I find the pigmentation in this palette is hit and miss, Blue Had Me At Hello is quiet nice. Pigmentation is great for the price, the lighter shades blend more effortlessly than the darker shades. The darker shades tend to get splotchy at times while the lighter shades are buttery and smooth. Decent palette over all. Comfort Zone is my favorite palette out of the three. I find the colours in this palette blend much easier, and the colour pay off is very very nice. The brow bone shades in this palette are a bit odd though, one is very yellow based, while the other is taupe; they may look better on darker skin tones but on my fair skin it just doesn’t look right. Although the brow bone colours don't look good on my skin tone for my brow bone highlight, I use them on my lids and they look fine. Over all I think these are great palettes for beginners all the way to professionals. Very good colour pay off for the most part, as well as minimal fall out. Although I do suggest doing your face makeup last when using these shadows due to the possible fall out. Great price for all the shadows you get.
Great lipsticks, worth every penny!
Crème D'nude is my everyday lip colour, topped with a few dabs of MAC’s Angel makes it look subtle but still alive and girly.Looks great with both dramatic and neutral looks, as well as all year round. In my opinion, in comparison Creme D'nude suits my skin tone (NW20) much better than other MAC nudes such as Myth, Myth tends to take the life out of my face and make me look dead, where as Crème D'nude just tones down my highly pigmented lips. This lip colour is great by it’s self or just to blank out my lips before I apply an additional colour or gloss. I am currently on my 4th tube of this and will be repurchasing yet again. I am quiet picky with my nude lip colour’s and have tried many, both high end and drugstore, but I can never find anything that compares to Crème D’nude. It goes on smoothly, does not dry out the lips and last quiet a long time, especially with the MAC Prep + Prime for lips underneath. I highly recommend this lip colour for more fair skin tones. Hope this helped. (:
