Default Re: MAC Makeup

OH man.. I've heard of eyelash extensions (My sister does them for $10.. they last 2 weeks) But no implants.. that's crazy! How much does it cost?

Oh and the pigments.. Yeah some are sparkly, but some are not. There is a variety of colors..

The one big thing I HATE about MAC is that the makeup is categorized in two: MAC and MAC Pro.

The MAC Pro items are only available at the PRO stores. There is only 1 in L.A. that I know about and it's in Beverly Hills. I think the one in Hollywood & Highland might be Pro but I'm not 100% sure. There are MAC stores at the malls that may carry some of the products but not all of them.. Oh and the MAC's stations at Macy's don't carry anything PRO. SuX!

Well you can only buy from the PRO website if you are a member. (make up artist, employee, or student from one of the makeup schools on their "list) --Yeah they have a list.
Pretty cool, because the students get 20% off purchases!

But anyway, the PRO colors are so pretty and there is a much bigger variety of shades. (I'm talking about everything: lipstick, eyeshadows, foundation..) Some of the PRO pigments I bought I got from eBay. Although I did to to the one in Bev Hills once (just to check it out) Oh and there are PRO products that are just not available for regular MAC stores at all!

Compare for yourself (I'll use the pigments as an example):

MAC:

MAC PRO:
http://macpro.com/templates/products...CT_ID=PROD1519


BiG difference!! FUCKERS!!!

Really? My eyelashes aren't going to fall off with the extensions are they? I might like to try that. Where does your sister work?

I remember a post about eyelash extensions, can't remember what it was called but it sounded like something I would try. It was pricey though.

lol They're not that bad.. If you try blending them with a darker shade and a nice highlghter.. it looks pretty good.

Pastel colors alone, yeah... I don't like it much either..

I saw this Girls Myspace Profile and I love it! She is a make-up artist I think and I love the way she does the make-up, she also has some good blogs about make-up.
She has a lash tutorial in how to put fake eyelashes! LOL

The only colors I can think about for the blue is Fresh Water and Blue Steel Pigment. For the Lips, the color is exact to Lip Varnish in Vanishing Rose. Beautiful color!! She looks awesome in that pic

Default Re: MAC Makeup

Personally my fave eyeshadows from MAC are Humid, Black tied, and Nocturnelle. Humid is a smoky green with sparkle and Nocturnelle a deep purplish really great colors for brown eyes. Ive been wanting to dive into some blue colors but havent had time to look yet. I did buy Well Plumed eye quad #4, and I really love the blue it has. I love MAC!!! lol. I was looking at the new Danse collection too, but Im not into pastels, some of the more berry shades look neutral enough, though. I like the lipsticks and glosses too. I tend to do up my eyes all the time, and I like high impact mascara, so far my faves are Lancome Amplicils and Clinique High Impact. I do think the MAC brushes are pricey, Sonia Kashuk (?) something like that brand at Target makes great brushes. You need brushes for a better blended look, in my opinion.
