MAC DSQUARED2 COLLECTION







MAC DSQUARED2 COLLECTION will be launched this fall. I won't mind having some of the products, but the packaging is kinda 'Blah!' for my taste. I mean a collaboration with a high-end fashion label does brings about high expectations, but these just look like usual MAC packaging with 'DSQUARED2' written blandly on them (which will probably come off with daily handling and sweaty fingers.)
Will skip on this collection and wait for the next one, hoping for some prettiness :)

MAC PREP+PRIME TRANSPARENT FINISHING POWDER


Everyone should have this powder, including guys (ok, 'some' guys) :) and even the make-up virgins, if only to reduce the sweaty shine and dullness.

It has replaced all my compacts. One universal shade suits all skin tones, so you don't have to go through the 'I hope I got the right shade' worries. It cuts down the oiliness and reduces your pores. Don't get scared by the 'white' because once you apply it, it's a match made in beauty heaven :)

With this, your makeup won't look piled-on, even after foundation and concealer. It's a hassle-free and no-fuss product which is hard to find fault with.

*Tip: Once you peel off the sticker covering the holes, too much of the powder comes out and can easily fly everywhere. I suggest you peel the sticker, cut it in half and then stick it back on to cover   half of the holes. This way it's easier to get only as much powder as you need on your brush.


Price~ Rs.1250.

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick ~ Lickable




Got the MAC 'Lickable' lipstick recently and I'm quite happy about it in spite of the fact that I wanted 'Girl About Town' in the first place but it wasn't available at the time.
The two shades are very similar except that GAT has more of a blue tone and Lickable is more reddish, in my opinion. I'd say I like the cremesheen finish more than the amplified because the former gives a smoother finish unlike the amplified which moves around when you lock your lips.
What's amazing is it stays within the lip line even without a lip liner. Absolutely loving it!!!
It is also very pigmented so if you don't want it to look to loud, apply it with a lip brush.
