MAC Fast Play

For the first time, MAC had a 20% sale in conjunction with the Sephora sale. So I bought a few item and I’m planning to unbox them one at a time. It was hard trying to choose a lipstick shade. I just want them all. But I decided to buy the different finishes. So first up is the Amplified lipstick. It’s pigmented, long wearing, smooth and doesn’t dry up your lips. My lips was quite chapped. And using this, you still can see the flakes on my lips. I was hoping that it will cover it up. But it doesn’t. 

Fast Play is a beautiful mauve. It’s slightly on the nude side, wearable for any occasion. It will gives your lips a hint of colour without attracting attention to you. 

I like how it’s so long lasting and yet it doesn’t dry up my lips. Even with chapped lips, it’s comfortable on. It’s also not patchy when applied. Really glad I pick up this colour. 

MAC eyeshadow – Black Tied Velvet

Swatching this in the finger, just gives a really pigmented black with tiny silver glitter. When you transfer it onto the back of your hand, it’s just very patchy. So tapping motion to apply this is still the way. It’s not a smooth shadow. It’s very course. I guess cause of the glitter in this. So ya, this is nice to want a hint of glitter on the lid for a top up on a smudged black eyeliner as shadow application. 

MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush – Peachtwist

This is a nice bronze blush. I guess if it’s not so shimmery, it will be nice to bronze up the face. The shade is slightly rosey. So it’s more suitable as a blush. It’s quite pigmented. I will use a stippling brush just to get the faintest colour. While we like things pigmented, I find that less pigmented item that can be build up to be much better. But anyway, this is a great blush for summer time. 

MAC Syrup

I know ages ago I said it’s nothing special about a MAC lipstick. But I just wanted one for work. A shade that is mlbb. A nice wearable shade appropriate for work. I choose MAC cause it felt save to have. I got the the shade Syrup which is a lustre finish. Now I’m in love with MAC. It doesn’t disappoint. You can have dry lips, and this will somehow cover it slightly. It won’t make your lips look super dry. The colour is not only beautiful, it’s just so wearable. 

Syrup has lived in my bag for months. It’s the lipstick I bring with me everywhere I go. Cause I know if I was rushing and forgot to use one, Syrup will not fail me. It can also work as a top up lipstick. It’s just versatile and suit every mood and occasion. 

The scent is a nice typical MAC lipstick scent. The formula is creamy and feels comfortable on the lips. It’s easy to apply even without a mirror. The tube is solid, so you know it won’t break when you apply it. It just feels nice upon application. It’s quite worth the money especially if you don’t buy it in Singapore. 

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick

I got this like in 2014 and I’d kept it in its box till last month. I actually wanted the Riri Woo but it was sold out super fast. Then I was watching DivaMakeupQueen and she has the same skin tone as me (NC35). She was saying how this is the perfect red for people with her shade. And I bought it. 

It’s a really beautiful red with a frost finish. I don’t see much frost but it’s like as if it has tiny specks of glitter in it. It’s not glittery but it’s just very nice on the lips. It’s glossy and pigmented. The only thing I find is that you have to really carefully apply. It will go out the line so you have to line your lips first I feel. I don’t know. I cannot get a clean line. But even without liner, this doesn’t bleed. So it’s nice. 

This shade is suppose to be on the blue red side. I guess depending on the lighting, it will be quite obvious. It’s also comfortable on the lips but at times you can feel the dryness. I love the packaging though. It’s a suede red. Or at least it feel suede. Not sure if you can still buy this. Anyway since the proceed of this sales go to charity I don’t feel so bad buying this at a normal price. 

MAC Fix+

I get it. I understand why people love this. This is not a fine mist. It’s a fine spray. But it’s a spray. It will not be one press and you can cover the whole face kind. It is the you have to kept spraying to get the product out to distribute to your face. But it’s really no problem. Cause it’s just so good. For some reason, this doesn’t annoy me. Usually spray like this irritate me. But Fix+ is comfortable. The droplet is fine and doesn’t really annoy my face.

This cost $29. I wanted the travel size, but they do not carry it. So this has to do. Fix+ is good. Cause it really help to prolong the wear of your makeup. It helps to mattify the face but doesn’t make it dry. I don’t know what is it but it just makes you want to keep grabbing it. I don’t think I can ever not have this in my collection now. It’s also very cooling and refreshing. I love it. I love all my sprays. But this, I will always need in my life. 

MAC Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner – Petrol Blue

I’ve been using MAC and Sephora a lot. Well I guess I bought way too much during the sales. This is a gorgeous blue with glitter. I sure don’t need another eyeliner. I don’t use them. But I had to get this. It glides easily when swatch. It is ok on the eyes and doesn’t irritate them. It’s not a soft liner.  I feel that the kohl liner is much better as it is so much smoother. But this is alright. I just have to slowly draw short lines on my lid. From the outer to the inner. It doesn’t break, so it’s actually quite easy to apply. 

If you use colour, this will be great. But if you are a neutral tone girl, then this may be a bit bold. It will be a pretty weekend night pop of colour. Which is what I intend to do. Then again, I don’t use eyeliner. So this is just sitting pretty in the drawer. 

MAC DSquared Sculpt and Shape Powder

 

Totally forgot about this. Found this in one of my old luggage. This is in Accentuate Sculpt. It is one side a soft light pink shimmery highlight and another a medium matte brown. My aunt used this a lot until she sort of hit pan on the contour powder and pass it on to me. It was so long ago, maybe 5 years or so? 

The colours are alright, I mean I should throw this away. And see how much of the contour is used up. Actually not a lot. It just cracked and tossed aside. But the brown is really a nice tone for crease and light contouring. It’s great for beginners too. As it won’t emphasized the contoured. I guess cause if your skin is darker, it won’t really show. 

Oh well, but you see, I should really not buy anymore makeup. I just have too many and I can never finished them up. Except face powders, eventually I will hit pan. 

Pro Longwear Concealer

 

Love this. Beauty gurus said that is one of the most high coverage concealer. I so agree. It’s a really blendable high pigment concealer. It’s good for covering blemishes and it last all day. My shade is NC30. I feel like the shade match is not perfect, but it’s alright. It takes some time for me to really find a shade that is good for me. But I roughly I am using NC30 and/or NC35. So I just had to choose between that too and a couple that is close. 

So Ya, a little goes a long way. The pump is quite solid so I tend to always pump a whole lot more than I needed. So I apply under my eyes too, no creasing which is good. I can’t quite remember how much I bought this for. But Ya, it’s worth every cent. 

MAC 129SE

This is kind of rough for MAC brush. I thought it will be the super soft kind. Granted it’s a holiday collection. It’s small enough for traveling and it’s good at picking out pigmented blushes. I do feel that it pick the right amount of pigment.
