Mac Polished Up

Mac Polished Up (Lustre)

The Mac website describes Polished up as a foxy brown shade. I would say Polished up is a brown lipstick with plum undertones. One can wear this as a daytime lip color or a night time lip color. It looks good when applied sheer too. Sheer application would work well as a daytime work/office look. […]

Mac Vegas Volt (Amplified Crème)

Mac Vegas Volt (Amplified Crème)

The Mac website describes Vegas Volt as full power coral shade. This is a coral shade leaning towards orange. In fact it sometimes looks neon. It looks very pretty in the tube but on the lips, it can look a little retro. I was a little disappointed on how it looked on my complexion (NC […]

MAC Creme In Your Coffee

MAC Creme In Your Coffee (Cremesheen)

The Mac website describes this as a creamy mid-tone pink brown – the description is quite appropriate. The application is effortless which coupled with the neutral color makes it ideal for daily wear. In my opinion, it will suit almost any complexion. Also, this is the sort of color that can be worn for any […]

Mac Up The Amp (Amplified Crème)

Mac Up The Amp (Amplified Crème)

The Mac website describes Up The Amp as lavender violet but I would say it is more violet than lavender. The formula is creamy and it just glides onto the lips effortlessly. This lipstick is from “Amplified” range of Mac lipsticks and therefore quite pigmented. The finish is shiny and opaque. This is one of […]

La Femme Blush-Purple Passion

La Femme Blush-Purple Passion

MAC Purple Haze Eye Shadow

MAC Purple Haze Eye Shadow

Mac Purple Haze is a Matte eye shadow. It is a cool toned pale purple color. I find this a little tough to work with. The pigmentation is not great and it looks deeper colored in the pot compared to the actual application. It works best if used with a primer. I use the Urban […]

MAC Fluidline Eyeliner-Macroviolet

MAC Fluidline Eyeliner-Macroviolet

Mac Fluidline is a range of creamy gel eyeliners that come in a transparent pot with a black lid. The application is smooth. Fluidline eyeliners need to be applied with a brush – I use the Mac 210. These liners are long wearing and stay all day on the lid without smudging. I do not […]

Colorbar Pro Nail Laquer–Dazzling Mauve

Colorbar Pro Nail Laquer–Dazzling Mauve

The Pro Nail Laquer range from Colorbar is supposed to provide long lasting wear with magnified shine. The bottle comes with a flat brush meant for easy and streak free application. Dazzling Mauve is a reasonably bright purple colored nail polish. The application was a bit streaky but manageable. The streaky application could be specific […]

Essie Under Where?

Essie Under Where?

Essie Under Where is a beautiful pinkish purple shade. I got introduced to this shade while watching youtube videos by nurberxo (she is one of my favorite beauty gurus – watch her youtube videos, you will love them). The Essie website describes it as an orchid nail polish. This shade is both fun and classy. […]
