Taking out the trash VII – July 2016 Empties

After filming this months empties video I realized that I seem to have separation anxiety when it comes to lip products. I mean, seriously, a six year old lipgloss?

That is gross!

But no longer, four makeup items had to go, and I did finish some skincare as well.

So without further ado, my July 2016 Empties, along with mini reviews and, of course, bloopers at the end!

If you are not familiar with the “Favorite Face of …” series, click here for a little introduction. Short story even shorter, it is the makeup that I wore most during that month, featuring the favorite (as in most used) makeup products.

Just like last month I decided to not only list all the products I reached for, but film a quick tutorial to show you the look my half-asleep self managed to create with them.

MAC Fluidlines – The thin line between crisp and too soft

Being fair, blonde and light in eye color, I sometimes feel like my face lacks definition. Blonde lashes and grey-green eyes blend in with my face until all I see is a blur.

It did get better when I realized I needed glasses six years ago, but the ultimate solution is wearing liner.

So I wear liner every single day.

And while the crisp line the liquid ones give me is my all time favorite, there are days when I want a softer look. Pencils or smudged eyeshadow are too soft already, I needed something in between.

Splashing my face with water – MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation

I think we all are old enough to know that advertisements and reality usually don’t match.

Sometimes even the claims sound a little odd to me. Case in point? The new MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation.

According to the sales assistant, your face after applying the foundation should look and feel like you just splashed it with water. Hydrated and glowing.

If I splashed my face with water, it would feel tight, my eyes would get a little red and my nose would start running. Not really that tempting, hm?

Does the foundation actually meet the advertisement claims? Let´s see. Read more


Are you a neutral girl? Then MAC Matchmaster Foundation might be just the one for you

MAC was my first makeup love, and it will always hold a special place in my heart and on my drawer. During my first year of building a collection, all I bought was MAC

I am a little embarrassed to admit I own at least one piece of every LE released in 2012, sometimes waiting in front of the store with other beauty lovers on release day, just to make sure I would get my hands on the desired item.
And even though these days are long gone and I stray and buy other brands on a regular basis, MAC eyeshadows and lipsticks will always be a big part of my stash.
M.A.C. Matchmaster Foundation in 1.5
My first ever highend foundation was MAC, and I keep going back to try another one, even though I have never been overwhelmed.
My most recent purchase was the MAC Matchmaster Foundation in the shade 1.5.

Unlike other MAC skin products, the shade range isn’t divided in NC and NW colors. This foundation claims to be neutral, neither warm nor cold, and thus suit every skin color equally, something that instantly drew me in.
