As you may remember, i already talked about Makeup Addiction here and i’m now very happy to review you their new line of Pigments.
Here’s how the Pigments are described on Makeup Addiction’s website:
“All of our pigments are finely milled and highly pigmented. They are all-cruelty free and are never tested on animals. These pigments are talc and paraben free.
Build up your collection with a variety of beautiful pigmented shimmery, iridescent and duo chrome shades“.
Shades and Swatches
The line is composed by twelve colorful shades. I swatched them all and tried at the same time, to do some color combinations (that’s basically how i like to pair them 🙂 ). As a personal initiative, i even gave each color combination a name.
Color Combination I: Arctic
L-R: Silver Lights, Inkjet, Purest (No Flash)
L-R: Silver Lights, Inkjet and Purest (Flash)
Silver Lights: described as a “true silver black“, is a very metallic gunmetal shade. I usually pair this with Purest in the inner corner, a neutral brown on the crease Continue reading
The MAC’s Pro Longwear Concealer is probably one of the brand’s most famous products.
I got it some months ago, because I was looking for a very high coverage concealer that I could use sheered out on a wet sponge or full on with a camouflage effect on areas “in need”, leaving the rest of the face fresher and with a lightweight base.
It’s described as a “fluid concealer that provides medium to full matte coverage for up to 15 hours” with a “liquid camouflage-like formula that brightens dark areas, erases spots and evens skin tone”.
I’m in between NC15 and NC20 and I usually mix them. When I’m at my “palest” or when I want a very bright and fresh undereye area I go for NC15, when I’m tan I go for my NC20.
NC 15 Tends to be a tiny bit more neutral, almost cooler, but Continue reading
A new vice is around, because Urban Decay released the fourth palette of the series, the Vice 4.
“We channeled all the darkly gorgeous, dimensional hues of an oil slick (inspired by our vintage shade name Oil Slick) into a palette filled with rich, deep jewel tones. Vice4 features a stunning array of colors and a wide range of finishes, from buttery-smooth mattes and shimmering metallics to shades laced with micro-glitter. Every shade features our Pigment Infusion System™, a proprietary blend of ingredients for rich, velvety, blendable color that lasts (and sparkle that doesn’t fall)”.
As the other Vice palettes, the Vice 4 contains twenty brand new eyeshadows with different textures, from matte to shimmery/metallic to glittery.
It’s a limited edition palette that comes in a matching bag and it’s provided with a large mirror and a double-ended brush.
Most of the shades should contain micro-glitter particles, but it’s more of a sparkle, i’d say. Some of them tend to be a bit dusty, but with a good primer they should be great.

After a lot of requests by her fans and a, MAC announced a Selena Quintanilla collection for late 2016!
It’s been 20 years since the latin singer’s unfortunate and tragic death. Selena’s lovely fans wanted to honour her by asking MAC for a special collection, through a petition on change.org back in February 2015. Since Selena’s signature look has made makeup history, MAC said yes!
Before MAC’s “approval”, fans even imagined a cool fan art of the products to promote the collection (and i must say that a dark blackened violet lipstic bullet would be awesome!)
Here’s what Continue reading
Get ready for a Mariah Carey collaboration with MAC for this Holiday season and, as a beauty icon, in 2016!
Here’s what James Gager, M∙A∙C Senior Vice President/Group Creative Director, said about the MAC x Mariah Carey:

She exudes elegance, glamour, sophistication or sense of fun. Her “All I Want” lipstick is the perfect frosty holiday shade and her Beauty Icon collection will be everything you think of when you think M·A·C and Mariah.”
And Mariah herself said that:
“M·A·C has been my go-to makeup brand for as long as I can remember and I’m so thrilled to be collaborating with them on a lipstick debuting this December, just in time for the holiday season!

Some months ago i wrote this article on MAC’s Viva Glam campaign featuring Miley Cyrus!
Now it’s time for round two, because MAC has released the second Viva Glam campaign featuring the singer, the Viva Glam 2 Miley Cyrus!
Here how it’s described on MAC’s website:
“Miley Cyrus is BACK with a BAM! Our iconic VIVA GLAM spokesperson has two new surefire hits: a super-sexy bright orange Lipstick and coordinating Lipglass with sparkling pearl shimmer“
And Miley said that:
“I have the opportunity to teach my fans about what VIVA GLAM represents, and to educate them about HIV/AIDS prevention and being safe. So many people are scared to talk to their kids about what’s important and if I can be the one that speaks up and educates young people, then I will.”

Viva Glam Miley II Lipstick is described as a “bright orange“. It’s a matte (but not drying) bright Continue reading
