“A lightweight fluid concealer with a wand applicator that offers all-day comfortable wear with medium-to-full buildable coverage and a natural matte finish” – maccosmetics.com

Every since I heard the news that the MAC  Studio Fix Concealer was being released, I was ready. The studio fix line products are apart of my Holy Grail items that I can not live without.  See them HERE and HERE. Add in a concealer I was beyond excited and had very high expectations. I am hear to tell you my expectations have been met and then some. Lets dive right into this amazing concealer.

  • Price: $22.00
  • 33 Shades
  • Light Weight
  • Medium Coverage
  • Natural Matte Finish

There have been a lot of mixed reviews on this concealer because so many people want super full coverage with a matte finish. This is not TAPE SHAPE I repeat this is not TAPE SHAPE and I could not be happier. For all of those that want a full coverage look there are just as many of us that don’t like that look at all or just want a good everyday concealer.  Please remember that when watching Youtubers. Also many are young and this concealer works wonders under my 37 year old mom eyes. lol I  prefer my skin to look like skin with my makeup on. I want to look like myself but better. Less tired and uneven lol If you want full coverage and matte then please try the Pro Longwear Concealer, its fantastic!!! The MAC studio fix concealer is creamy and blends like butter and covers just enough to make you look fabulous! This concealer and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer are by far my top two concealers of all time. Concealer is so personal, its a preference. From coverage, to shades and finishes it truly depends on the persons needs and wants.

I use to be matched as NC 20 but having the full range of MAC studio fix concealers in my hands I now know I prefer it to blend in and go with NW 25. NC 20 is just too bright for me now and I do not like the way it makes me look. I prefer my concealer to blend seamlessly into my skin tone, be creamy, natural looking with decent coverage and this concealer matches all of my criteria.

It does not crease on me. BONUS! lol

NEW MAC POWDER KISS LIPSTICK: Matte, Totally Reinvented

Mac Powder Kiss Lipstick: Matte, totally reinvented. Delivering a romantic blur of soft-focus colour, this weightless moisture-matte lipstick was developed to replicate a backstage technique: blending out edges of matte lipstick for a hazy effect. Its groundbreaking formula contains moisture-coated powder pigments that condition and hydrate lips. The result is the zero-shine look of a matte lipstick with the cushiony, lightweight feel of a balm – maccosmetics.com

Sometimes matte lipsticks can feel too dry and make our lips looked cracked and old. Meet MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick. The formula feels like you have on a lip balm. I do not know how they did this but WOW. This new lipstick formula is extremely comfortable on the lips. As I was swatching them they went on smooth and easy. Like your lips, when you swatch very matte lipsticks they do not swatch great. The red shades caught my attention right away. Style Shocked reminds me of a subdued Lady Danger. This shade is the perfect shade if you are new to a bold lip. Many of the more “bold” colors are.

As a disclaimer I did go back and forth a couple times for my swatches but they are pigmented and not sheer! I just wanted to get my swatch to look a bit straight and not super messy. On the lips these look exactly how they are described. However they can be worn as a more sheer look and very buildable. So much to love about this formula! I would say as you should with all lip products make sure to scrub your lips and prep them before hand. My lips are a bit chapped and were not prepped and you could see a lot of those lines when I was trying them out.

NEW MAC LIPSTICK: Plenty of Pout

“Pump up the plump to ten – and take lips to their very fullest potential. Plenty of Pout Plumping Lipstick creates full bee-stung lips while laying down sheer, creamy colour. An invigorating ginger root complex with a cooling sensation volumizes lips immediately, while infused oils moisturize and smooth. Plenty of Pout Plumping Lip Gloss packs the same power with a side of clear, balmy shine. Layer it over the Lipstick to soften lip lines for a fresh, pumped-up pout!” – MACCOSMETICS.COM

I will be the first to admit I am not into plumping lip products. However these new MAC Lipsticks make your lips feel juicy and plump without all the sting. There is a plumping gloss you can put over them to really amp it up but it gives me that tingling / sting feeling I do not like. Wearing the plumping MAC Lipstick alone is perfect for me! These lipsticks have a sheer but very creamy coverage. You will see below my swatches were two swipes to make it look nicer (HA)  but they were pigmented with one swipe.

I think the key with these lippies is the because there are oils infused to moisturize and smooth you do not really notice the cooling sensation as other plumping lipsticks. Picture it like your minty lip balm that feels cool a bit but it does not feel funny on the lips.  Just smooth, full voluminous juicy lips! Do you have your eyes on these? Lets chat in the comments below!

Best Products For Glowing Skin

I am just going to say it, if your makeup is too matte or too flat it will age you! Add in a number over 30ish it can be even worse. I am 37 and talk about this openly on here and on my Instagram all the time. My skin is not perfect by any means but when my skin is glowing I feel better, its that simple. When your skin has a dewy youthful glow with dimension it looks well, youthful! Now do not get me wrong we all have to add in some powder here and there on our face because of oily parts but if you have oily skin do not be afraid to add in glow!!!! MAC Cosmetics has a fabulous video on dewy skin and this is when I had a AH HA moment about placing powder in certain areas ONLY. I use to do it to my entire face. Never again!

When it comes to glowing skin it has to start with your skincare. After I had my kids my skin changed. It was more dry, dull and textured. I started to focus more on my skin and less on makeup. I am going to break down products that I use to get my glowing (no special order – if you want to see a full skincare routine let me know in the comments).

EXFOLIATING IS YOUR FRIEND

I have an oily T Zone and my forehead gets so much texture. An esthetician told me in the summer especially I need to exfoliate 3x a week. When you are exfoliating you are getting rid of dead skin cells, which creates a smoother surfaceThe only product I use is from Origins.

Origins Modern Friction Nature’s Gentle Dermabrasion: This does come with a higher price tag of $40 however you do not need a lot and it will last you. On the origins website you can buy a smaller size for $21. See them HERE and HERE

One other product that just came across my desk to test is the Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub. Stay tuned as I am almost out of my Origins and will be trying this. The price is $29.00 so its a little less.  Of course that are a ton of other scrubs on the market for less but I just have not tried them. As long as you are exfoliating with whatever works for your skin ect it will help get your glow.  When it comes to skincare when something works I stick with it. The Origins one was introduced to me when I was 26. Have not looked back.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Night Serum: This product was my introduction to acids and I am hooked. This can be an irritate to some.I have sensitive skin but its been great! It has a small amount with 12% AHA/BHA.  I started off every two to three days with this product to be safe. I can easily use it everyday now but still do it every other day plus it will make this last longer. It is very pricey but worth every penny. Per Sephora Site: “Resurfaces dull skin, lifting dead skin cells away by gently dissolving the glue that holds them to the surface. The results are greater clarity and a smoother, more even-looking complexion…Go from a drab complexion to an absolutely luminous one practically overnight” That literally speaks for itself! I did try the Pixi Glow Exfoliating Serum  as its cheaper by a lot but it did not work for me. I broke out.  However that does not mean it will not work for you! You can see it HERE. 

Another product by Drunk Elephant I am using is the Baby Facial which has a higher percentage of Acids and I have really loved this. My sister in law got it for me for my birthday as she knew I was really wanting to try it.  A more affordable option ($7!!!!) for this product is by the Ordinary and can be found HERE. I have not tried this product so I can not speak of it but it has great reviews.Glowing Skin

FACE OILS

 Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate (Day Time): My holy grail face oil for during the day. You can add ONE drop to your moisturizer if you need to, put it on your face alone or even add to your foundation for a more dewy look. This is a lightweight oil. It will not make you feel weighed down. I like to feel dewy too as feeling dry on my skin in general drives me bananas. This is not for everyone but I want to see the hydration. I would rather look oily or wet than dry and matte. Per Sephora: “strengthens skin’s defenses against daily aggressors to keep skin radiant and youthful-looking. It provides antioxidant protection with a powerful blend of naturally-derived oils—including ginger root, sunflower, and tamanu—to help skin feel fresh and look energized, morning to night” See it HERE

The Ordinary 100% Cold-Pressed Virgin Marula Oil (Night Time): I do not use a moisterizer at night, I use oil and this has been my go to! Guess what? Its UNDER $10!!! See it HERE . So what does this oil do? “This luxurious-feeling oil fights free radical damage, hydrates the skin, promotes elasticity, and helps restore a radiant tone” – Beautylish Site

MOISTURIZER MOISTURIZER MOISTURIZER 

If your face and eyes are not moisturized / prepped for makeup properly it will show when you are done with your makeup.  Just like taking care of your skin, the prep is just as important. Three moisturizers that are fool proof for me and give you dewy perfection just as is are:

Belif The True Cream Bombs (Aqua & Moisturizing): Korean Beauty has made its way into my routine and I have fallen in love. Which makes sense because Korean Beauty is all based around hydration! The Aqua bomb is gel based and perfect for summer while the Moisterizing Bomb is a cream and out-stands Chicago Winters.  See Them HERE and HERE

PONDS Crema S Moisturizer: A gem at the drugstore. Its under $10 and will give you a all the glow you need. I do not use this as much as I use to because I have started to notice reactions to certain products. My skin was very sensative after kids. I probably should give this a whirl again but it is scented which could have caused reactions for me. See it HERE at Target.

Kiehl’s Ultra Face Cream: I absolutely love this and they now make one with a SPF which is a plus. I go back and forth  between this one and the ones from Belif. After I apply I never feel that dry feeling around your hair line and cheeks. Which is why I love all of these so much. See it HERE

Glowing Skin

WANT YOUR UNDER EYES TO GLOW? I DO LOL!!!!

Crows feet? No thanks. I want my eyes prepped for concealer and ready to look glowy and dewy. Here are two I can not live without!

Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment w/ Avocado: This under concealer creates the most beautifully hydrated under eye that allows you to glow! Your concealer will never dry up or crease with this! See it HERE.

Origins Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff: This does EXACTLY what it says it does. If your face is glowing and looking dewy you want your eyes to match. INSTANTLY brightens. See it HERE

Best Products For Glowing Skin

ENDLESS MAKEUP PRODUCTS BUT HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVS TO GLOW

glowing skinGlowing Skin

LIQUID HIGHLIGHTERS

When it comes to makeup products to glow, liquid highlighters are probably my absolute favorite way to achieve it. I use them in many different ways including before foundation for an all over a glow, mixed with foundation, alone on no makeup days to get my skin looking fresh and as a spot highlighter.  Three of my absolute must have are:

Marc Jacobs Dew Drops:  See them HERE and see swatches and my review HERE 

L’Oreal Glotion: See them HERE and see swatches and my review HERE

MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream: See them HERE and see swatches and my review HERE

POWDERS

Sometimes we think powders are the enemy when it comes to glowing skin but its about finding ones that enhance your glow and that are NOT matte. Also the placement of powder I talked about above. I use to powder my whole face and its just not something that works for me anymore. Whether it’s a bronzer or a setting powder its about finding the right one for you for this specific type of looking skin. Some setting powders come in a natural finish not matte.

Hourglass Bronzer: This bronzer looks so natural and warm on the face and is fused with Hourglasses famous lighting powder in Diffused Light  to mimic a ray of warm sunlight.  There setting powders create the light on your face so this is the best of both worlds because it mixes a bronzer and setting powder in one. See it  HERE. and see my post about other fav bronzers of mine HERE

Colourpop Highlighter in WISP: A powder but its so creamy its like a cream on your skin. It glides on with ease and is only $8. When I tell you I reach for this over any other highlighter I own I mean this. Powders tend to look off on my skin these days but again you have to find the right formula that works for your skin.  See it HERE 

MAC Hyper Real Glow Palettes: Just like BECCA Highlighters (another must have but I feel everyone knows about these already lol. If not see them HERE) the MAC glow palettes are soft, creamy and not chunky. Even though its a powder its smooth and gives your skin a dewy look. Never dry. See them HERE

FOUNDATIONSThe last piece of the glow puzzle is foundation! These four give me all the dewy goodness I crave with or without adding in liquid highlighter. Of course if I love a matte foundation I just add in liquid highlighter or apply all over my face then apply the matte foundation. However with these four they have a dewy glowy finish. These are staples for the summer. Who am I kidding, I use them all year long!

NARS Sheer Glow – See it HERE

Maybelline Dewy & Smooth – See it HERE

MAC – Next To Nothing – See it HERE / review and swatches see HERE 

L’Oreal  Pro Glow – See it HERE 

I hope you all enjoyed this post!!! Of course these products are not in any order but one thing I can say over and over is glowing skin comes from proper skincare and taking care of that first. Also dont forget what works for me may not work for you but that is why return policies are FANTASTIC lol!!

Get your GLOW  on and happy shopping!!!

MAC Hyper Real Glow Palettes

MAC has just blown my mind with their new highlighter palettes. As a MAC fanatic I will say I am not super into their highlighters. Powder highlighters as of late just do not do it for me anymore. I prefer to have a more cream based. However the new MAC Hyper Real Glow palettes just gave me a new reason to love powder with their creamy formula.

All The Details: (Shop them Here and Here)

  • 2 Palettes
    • Flash + Awe – 3 hues of pink highlighters 
    • Get It Glowin – 3 hues of gold highlighers

IT’S MAGIC: New MAC Water Weight Concealer

Nothing new over here  when a new MAC product comes across my testing table I get excited. Like really really really excited. When I was scrolling through my Instagram feed last year and saw MAC Water Weight Concealer I was like a kid in candy shop.  As soon as it came out I purchased it!  Its safe to say I am a self pro claimed concealer junkie.  Who doesn’t want to find the perfect product? With so many shades, finishes and different coverage options on the market its hard to find the right one for you. Concealers may have a perfect shade match, a great finish but the coverage is not enough or it can be perfect coverage but its too matte or dewy. At the end of the day concealer can be tricky. Some how MAC has put Magic into a bottle and called in Concealer.

MAC Water Weight Concealer:

This concealer has many claims that would make anyone say “Okkkkkkk MAC” but I am here to tell you they are true! The MAC water weight concealer is an “ultra-fluid formula with medium-full buildable coverage and a satin finish. While it gently diffuses the appearance of imperfections and hydrates, PGA Moisture Fusion Complex and Glycine soja protein protects skin from external elements” – Ulta Beauty Website

Concealer Benefits:

  • 8 hour wear
  • Instant Hydration
  • Reduces appearance of undereye circles, dark spots and discolouration
  • Non-caking / streak-resistant

Product Information: (SHOP IT HERE) 

  • 16 shades
  • $23.00 USD
  • Available online and where MAC is sold
  • Permanent Line

Review:

 Do I recommend this product?!

I have used and tried so many different concealers however the MAC Water Weight Concealer is special.  Its so thin and does not crease yet has amazing coverage. It feels like you have nothing on under your eyes. Even after building up the coverage it did not cake or crease and guess what? I did NOT set it with a powder. MAGIC I tell you, just pure magic! The finish is flawless. Its not too matte and not too dewy. It claims it is a satin finish and I agree. Its very natural looking without looking like you have anything on. I bought this product soon after it was launched and was using it everyday. MAC then graciously sent me a few shades with the new Water Weight powder as well. I jumped for joy knowing I now had a back up set and ready to go! lol

As you can see in the below picture the concealer is a dropper and its literally like water coming out.  All I did was take the dropper and take it to my under eyes or on my hand and apply with my fingers. When I say a little goes a long way, I truly mean a little goes a long way. The only way I have blended this out is with my beauty blender (shop it HERE) and it just comes out flawless. No setting with powder and no settling into my fine lines.

Red Lips are classic. They can be worn everyday or can be glam for a night out. Wearing red lips is fairly new to me. I was always afraid of wearing a bold lipstick and now its a must have for me!

MAC Red lipstick is fool proof.  This post is going to give you 9 shades with different finishes and tones of red.

MAC Next To Nothing Foundation: Instagram Filter For Your Face??!!??

“An ultra balmy fluid infused with nourishing ingredients and opalescent microspheres for a youthful glow that looks lit from within. This sheer tinted cream can be used under or over foundation, or to bring a translucent luminosity to skin. The cushiony, smoothing texture glides over skin, diminishing the look of imperfections and fine lines, while moisturizing and protecting skin. Skin looks immediately retouched!” – Ulta Website

I know MAC Next To Nothing Foundation is almost old news now considering the beauty world is always producing new products but I still wanted to get my thoughts out.  In addition to making sure swatches are present online as it truly helps me choose what my shade may be! Who else searching for foundation swatches online?? Anywho this foundation is not for those who want full coverage or even medium coverage. You can use it in addition to your full coverage foundation to create a dewy look but if you want a one and done deal this is not for you.

Lets just get to the point, does this give you an instant instagram filter? Yes for me it does! I do have some redness on my skin but other than that I do not need a ton of coverage nor do I want a full coverage look.  This foundation is perfect for everyday, for mixing with other foundation or even younger girls just starting to get into makeup.

MAC Foundation

Benefits Per Ulta’s Website:

  • Provides hydration
  • Provides instant radiance
  • Features a comfortable, creamy formula
  • Nourishes skin

There are other products that were released with the Foundation as a MAC Next To Nothing family if you will.  Those items were a Foundation BrushPowder Brush and Pressed Powders to set the foundation. The powder sets your face in a very natural way that is not to cakey and the brushes work well with both products but are not necessary if you want to just purchase this foundation to try! Again this foundation is perfect for everyday or a natural look or if you have a matte foundation you love that you want to add a bit of radiance in it you can mix it to create a dewy look. Have you tried this foundation? Sound off in the comments!!!
