Default Re: MAC Makeup

i cannot ever seem to get the right match with drug store foundations. yes revlon is always closer, but i am still off and give up trying. =/ i have wanted to try the photo ready, what shade do u use? does it match pretty right on or is there a difference? hmm..when you say the maybelline shadows can over blend, i might be tempted to leave them alone. maybe use them if i am doing makeup on someone else though. they still look very pretty.

so i have the alice book also, do you feel like some of the colors are very frosty? sometimes i feel like they are too much for me to wear together. i love how pigmented and soft they all are and even though the glitter fall out is a problem those colors are so dang pretty! for an introduction into a makeup line i hadnt used before i really like it though. now i just need some color combo ideas

Im usually lucky when it comes to finding the right shade with the photo ready i wear "nude" its an exact match. I love the finish its so nice,I like the way it looks alone but my face does not look good without setting it first. When I say they over blend it seams like they all get kinda murky if you blend to much you need to use a really light hand when you blend. They are very pretty so i do like them.

With the alice book i think some are really frosty colors. Some of them i feel i can wear together but not all. Ive only ever had the udpp and one of the urbany decay pigments so this is my first book and i love it,. There is this really pretty look that i tried from you tube and i love it. Very simple. Heres a link.

I have a question for you girls...
I usually use perscriptives foundation but its no longer available I have been watching tutorials on youtube and everyone is talking about Makeup Forever at Sephora, I was wondering if anyone here has used it? or what kind of foundation do you use?

Aww I used to love my perscriptives foundation!!! The only other brand i have tried that matched just as good was M.A.C. but not sure if you've tried it before.I like going to department store to get foundation because they can do a color test and that takes the guess work out of it for me and possibly having to return something later.Sephora has great stuff so I'm sure of you go in someone can get you squared away.


I was bored so i toyed around with some colors and lashes last night...

carbon, goldmine, and an off brand green with some glitter.just a little experiment

I should go and get some samples first, because the thing with me is that I always tend to get a shade or two lighter than what they give me in the store and end up wasting more money., thanks for the advice
BTW love your eyes!

Ive used and still use lots of different ones. Drugstore i would say Revlon colorstay and love the Revlon photo ready. The best ones ive used are the Clinique foundations they have been the best to me. I think my favorite is the Perfectly real foundation. but I have other clinique ones that are good to.
