I always learn some incredible things from your amazing blog! PS, I just got the Pink Friday lippy because of your review and i'm loving itttt xxx. Great post! Very informative. I didn't know about the last 4 products. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you! Thanks for this amazing review Great review and very helpful swatches! Which would you recommend as best? I thought the gel if solely for the purpose of creating eyeliners. I ordered a purple glitter from Magnolia. I don't know if anyone has ordered lip product from Magnolia. I tentatively placed an order for Patriotic. I thought it was an orange but wasn't disappointed.
It was red. I placed order today for 2 more. Very impressed! If u haven't given it a go, try it you wont be let down. Happy Holidays! U r welcome Mercedes. I'm glad it helped. Yes the new wax based mediums can crease.
I had a bit of creasing when I used these recently. But if used sparingly with a primer it shouldn't be too bad. The gel one was the first one I ever got Hey Naomi!
I'm glad u learned something new hon and I'm happy u r enjoying Pink Friday. It's fab! U r very welcome Andrea. Glad it helped. No prob Sha. The two last ones are brand new: And the eyeliner one is fantastic! The lash medium U r welcome Slick! Keri B. She really did make everything easy to understand. The setting for this lab is pretty dope.
Multitasker Mixing Medium| NYX Professional Makeup
Within the first half hour of the class I had already learned what felt like a ton of information about color theory and how to apply those basics to creating almost any shade you can think of. We had the task of recreating a color based upon a paint swatch.
While we all came pretty close, with a tad bit more knowledge we were all able to recreate the exact color like the pros. We later tackled another challenge of creating a signature lip color by using MAC Cosmetics LipMix pro only and giving it a name. All of the colors the attendees created were colors I would have scoured the internet to purchase. I also saw a dusty plum color created as well as an ultra violet purple. The combinations are endless!
This was just a fraction of what I learned at the lab. So every makeup artist. MAC Pro offers a lot of classes during the year as well as periodic pro products such as seasonal trend palettes that are only available to pro members. So I bought this product because i recently bought a large palette full of eye shadows that wear off fast and aren't strongly pigmented I was torn between if I should use a eye shadow primer or base after doing some research i found out about this stuff and to be honest I'm not sure what it was or how i'm suppose to use it but i decided to give it a try.
I tried using it three different ways 1 spreading it on my eyelids and putting eye shadow over it 2 mixing eye shadows with the product 3 and putting it over already applied eye shadows. I was surprised that putting it on your eye lids first made eye shadows go on smoother. Rated 5 out of 5 by CoolGray from Perfect for hooded eyes and glitter!
Having hooded eyes made my eyelid color transfer to my "hood.

It really made the pigment in my eyeshadow PoP! I couldn't find any shades of my purple lipsticks so I improvised applying this to my lips and adding eyeshadow to it too. The color came out even better than the lipstick would have. This stuff has made my eye makeup last all day! From the funeral to later shenanigans that day. Also the color applied to my lips lasted all day.. I don't know how I did it before with out this stuff! Print If I mix this w a pigment to make a cream eyeshadow, and put it into a container w a lid, will it dry out?
Hi there! The shadow should not dry out, but since we do not test it in this way being saved we cannot guarantee. Thank you for your question. Answered by: Will this product help with oily eyelid? Hi Melisa!
