Unfortunately this was slightly sticky which contradicts the description that says it is not sticky... the stickiness is a notch down from MAC lipglass but none the less is still definitely sticky. I still rate 4 stars since its lasts long on the lips and gives you a very wet thick glossy look. If it didn't make the lips look so good i would of binned it as i hate sticky lipgloss.
Tropical Nights is a very unique bronzer, it has taupe/grey undertones making it perfect for contouring. the bottom half is very matte making it great for contouring whilst the top of the ombre is shimmer which doubles as a highlight, then when you swirl them all together you get a gorgeous bronzer. either way you decide to use this you wont look muddy, it will enhance the contours of your face without looking overly done. the product is very buttery and soft - because of this it does kick up a little bit in the pan but its minimal and barely wasted. well worth the purchase if you have been looking for your holy grail multitasking bronzer.
I love the amplified creme lipsticks from MAC they feel hydrating on the lips and they pack a punch of colour; this lipstick is no exception to that however the colour of this is nothing to "wow" about. its a dupable shade and I am sure many already have a shade like this in their collection. its a shame MAC released this color for Viva Glam hopefully the fact its for charity has enough pulling aspect for those to purchase.
I love this foundation! it is so moisturising on the skin, makes your skin feel hydrated without feeling greasy and never caused any breakouts onmy sensitive skin. Gives you that "your skin but better" look and i would say it is very similar to GA Luminous Silk however the coverage is a bit more on the sheer side in comparison. the foundation is buildable to come close to a medium coverage but if you are looking for full coverage this is not for you. I use 213 which is yellow toned suitable for NC25 skin.
in the pan the shadows look great, however they dont perform as great as they look. dont get me wrong they arent rubbish and definitely still work on the lids however even though i dont have oily eyelids the pigmentation just isnt there when applying the shadows. once you have packed on enough to get the intensity you desire they are effortless to blend however this comes with a downfall, with that effortless comes color bleeding. after a few hours the colours begin to bleed into one another and you know longer know where one starts or ends. i love the portability of the case and the quality of the packing but in my opinion that is not enough to justify the higher price tag.
