MAC Mariah Carey I’m That Chick You Like Eyeshadow Quad Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

You already know about my picks from MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection so today I want to post my review for MAC I’m That Chic You Like Eyeshadow Quad. There were actually two eyeshadow quads released as a limited edition, part of this collection and even though they were both available when I entered MAC store, I decided to choose only this one. As you know the exquisite packaging had an impact on the price for this collection overall, so each item was more expensive that usual. I personally like the combination of brown and gold shades and this palette seemed like the best choice for something I’d wear in the evening or special occasions. I actually used the shades from this palette on my New Year’s Eve makeup look as they lean to a shimmery finish and they are more suitable for a party or glamorous event.

MAC I’m That Chick You Like Eye Shadow x 4 ($41.00 / 184.00 Lei for for 0.19 oz.) is a set of four neutral shades with a shimmering finish. The limited edition palette comes in a glittery compact with a transparent lid and a magnetic closure. What I like about the packaging besides the fact that you can always see the shades is the fact that even though the edges are glittery they are super smooth to the touch. The shades from this palette are easily dupable so I understand why some of you were not really into this palette. Continue Reading

MAC Mariah Carey My Mini Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

MAC My Mini Extra Dimension Skinfinish was one of my top picks from MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection (info, photos) which was a limited edition release. I went for some light shopping yesterday at Sephora (they have sales btw) and I saw at MAC counters they still have products from this collection available. Like most of you out there, I was head over heels over the packaging of MAC Mariah Carey collection and since this gorgeous extra dimension skinfinish was announced as one of the star products, I had to have it. What really blew away customers, was by far the gorgeous glittery packaging and unique patterns on the products. I’m not really a sucker for limited edition packaging but I’d have to admit this collection really got me. What I find obscene at this product is the high price (extra $12.50) which doesn’t really explain the packaging or the quality of the product, but I guess it’s luxurious just like Mariah.

MAC-My-Mini-Extra-Dimension-Skinfinish-Review

MAC My Mimi Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($45.50 / 193.00 Lei for 0.35 oz.) is described as a warm gold shimmer. I see it as medium coppery-brown with gold, sparkly shimmer finish. It had a fairly good color payoff, with a semi-opaque coverage. Continue Reading

MAC Vino Lip Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

For a few months I’ve been enjoying the gorgeous color of MAC Vino Lip Pencil and I’ve been pairing it with different lipstick shades and textures. It’s part of the permanent collection so you’ll find it available at your local MAC counter anytime. I discovered it last year when I did some shopping at MAC and also bought Liptensity Lipstick in Burnt Violet (review, swatches), a shade that would definitely need an investment into a new lip liner color. MAC Vino was a perfect match for Burnt Violet, but for other shades as well so it became a one of the most used lip pencils from my collection in the past few months.

MAC Vino Lip Pencil ($17.50 / 71.00 Lei for 1.45 g / 0.05 oz) is officially described as an intense violet-purple. I see it as a medium-dark cool toned burgundy with a touch of purple and a matte finish. It has a good color payoff and it comes very close to a full opacity on the lips. It provides a burst of color in just one swipe and glides easily across the lips but it feels a bit dry at the same time. Continue Reading

MAC Flamingo Road Retro Matte Lipcolour Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Just as promised, I’m back with another review of one of the new four liquid lipstick shades from MAC Kabuki Magic Collection (info, photos) that I was telling you about yesterday. Today is all about MAC Flamingo Road Retro Matte Lipcolour, a crazy and vibrant shade which I’ve been wearing a couple of times last season. I’m quite familiar with MAC Retro Matte Lipcolour formula and the true matte finish, but I can’t really say I’m feeling comfortable with that dryness sensation on my lips.

MAC Fallen Angel Retro Matte Lipcolour Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

It’s been months since I’ve been wearing the edgy color of MAC Fallen Angel Retro Matte Lipcolour on my lips. This is one of the four new Retro Matte Lipcolour shades (swatches / photos) launching later this month as part of MAC Make-up Art Cosmetics Collection (official info / photos). I have to admit that it took me a while to get comfortable wearing this color, because it looks so dark and mysterious on my lips…totally different that the sweetness of pink shades that I was used to. I was surprised to receive so many compliments right from the first time I wore this shade and I guess people who have seen me then thought I’d totally changed my makeup style. After more than two months of wearing this shade I can say that we’ve become close friends and I often reach for it and pair it with a light, casual and nude makeup look. I bet you’ve already seen my on Instagram wearing this shade, but keep on reading for the entire review and lip swatches.

MAC Dahhlinggg Mariah Carey Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello babes!

Like many out there, I was into MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection (info, photos) from the moment I saw the sneak peek photos. With a bling bling, glittery silver packaging like this and nude colors, I knew right away I had so save some money. I already told you how I got to buy only a few products from this collection and what adventure that was. 🙂 Like any makeup junkie of MAC fan, I was definitely swiped away by what I name “one of the most appropriate holiday packaging” and that gorgeous butterfly packaging on the lipsticks. This collection was sold out in a bling of an eye in most countries, and the star products didn’t take more than a few days to disappear off counters even here in Romania. MAC Dahhlinggg lipstick was one of the two lip colors I had to check from my wishlist so I was extremely happy that I could find it available (as the last piece) a few days after the collection launched. None of the products from this collection benefit from MUA discount, so you’ll just have to get it at full price, no matter what.

MAC Dahhlinggg! Lipstick ($20.00 / 99.00 Lei for 0.10 oz.) is officially described as a pinky peach with a cremesheen finish. I personally see it as a light pinky-peach with slightly warm undertones and a natural sheen. On me it had semi-opaque color coverage which didn’t apply quite even on my lips. On some parts it looked streaky, showing on and settling into lip lines. Continue Reading
