FOTD & Opinion: MAC Cosmetics

Friday, September 12, 2014

Hello readers !
If you have already seen my August haul, you might have noticed that I won 3 MAC products, which I was so stoked about. I wanted to show you how the products work on me, so here is another FOTD, after a long time + I'll review the products as well. I really like to crop my pictures with the camera or later in a programme - that's just my style (I just wanted to explain that). + This is only in english due to a long post !

Viva Glam Rihanna Lipglass

I'm usually not a gloss wearer or lover, however just because this one is a bit more precious I love it ! As I've heard MAC lipglosses do have a vanilla scent - it is true ! This gloss is quite sticky, however because of that it stays on my lips sometimes for hours ! The color is red-ish with lots of glitter, which aren't that obvious while you're wearing it. If you put just a bit on to your lips, it leaves a more pinky color. I do really like the gloss because the pigmentation is great.

 Haute & Naughty Lash mascara

This mascara is that type of "double wand - 2 in 1". The first pink wand is for more a natural look, because it has just a tiny bit of mascara on it, as it wipes off in the tube. I wouldn't use this usually, because it doesn't do that much, however you can use it after the purple wand, to get your lashes even more separated. The purple wand is just up my alley because I usually love wands like that - the big and "fluffy" ones with normal "hair" (not plastic). It gives your eyelashes a nice amount of volume (not to much) and also lengthens them nicely + it doesn't clump at all !
One thing I've noticed is that mascara smelled on my lashes like plastic - I literaly could smell it for an hour. It's weird, but it doesn't bother me that much.
I don't think "double wand" is anything special, because I would rarely use that thin-pink wand, however the purple wand would be enough for me and is totally my type of mascara. Also I think you could get the same effect with cheaper mascaras. I could compare it to L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Original & Excess one, however the MAC one seems to have a bit less volumizing effect.

Mineralize Eye Shadow (duo) - Love Connection

This eyeshadow duo doesn't look anything special and maybe it is not, but there is still something about it that draws me to it. Ofcourse you get 2 colors: the light one has a nice baked effect and on your eyes it is just gorgeous (the only color I used in my look) - like a highlighter with a champagne undertone. The other color is not that nice to me, just because I don't like reddish brown eyeshadows, so it's not that special, but still completely wearable.
The texture is smooth and easy to apply. It doesn't matter if you first put the primer on, because it just glides on the same with or without it (but you do have to have some kind of powder or something mattifying under, so the oil doesn't ruin it). Also it stays on your lids for a long time too.
The one thing I don't like about these is that there is a lot of fallout, however the eyeshadow looks completely the same with or without the fallout.
I'm in love with that light champagne color becaue I've been into wearing only a light color on my eyes to bright them up. The quality is really nice and i like it a lot.

I used it on my eyelid, under my brows and as a highlighter on my cheeks

Here you can see how shiny and light-reflecting this eyeshadow is.
