Mac's Love the Look - FOTD

Mac's new Love the Look collection consists of 12 Starflash finish eyeshadows and 4 pearl glide eyeliners and some of the colours are actually repromoted(from last year) along with some new additional colours too. (Check out Temptalia's website for more info).

I ended up with getting only ONE eyeshadow this time around. I might wait for the others to hit the CCOs since I wasn't too intrigued by the colours. I got myself Rated R eyeshadow which is similar to Bitter, Overgrown and the lime green shade from Nar's Rated R duo eyeshadow. (I wonder why Mac copied their product name? =S) Apart from all the other similar dupes, I really love Mac's Rated R's just so pretty and I love the sheen of it. The texture is just so unique. I would just call it a shiny lime shade with a hint of yellow in it. It's just too gorgeous to pass and so I had to get it. *drool*

I also had some of the repromotes from last year so I didn't bother getting any backups either since I know I'll never finish these. I'm glad Smokes N Diamond eyeshadow was repromoted since many people had missed out from last year and they also ended up paying big bucks on Ebay and from other online shops.

Rant: I really hate the texture of Mac's Dreammaker eyeshadow. Why is it even being repromoted? I know it's a starflash finish and it's suppose to be silky, smooth in texture but I wonder how Mac went wrong with this one. It's great as a highlight but the texture is so powdery and seems like a lustre when applied on the lid. I had so much fallout too. =S Honestly, I love the colour but the texture is so horrible. It totally grinds my gears! *Family Guy Moment* =p

The Cosmetosaur blog link was posted on Specktra forums and it has some pretty Love the Look face charts and these are still not posted on the Mac website. Click on the link below for more info....


I was inspired by the facechart called Fashion Groupie. This is just a rendition. I didn't make it exactly the same, instead I applied a purple shade to the outer lid/crease area.

When it comes to face makeup, most of us will go to amazing lengths in order to find that perfect product. That one foundation, powder or congealer that completely hides spots, minimizes lines, smoothes texture and creates an overall flawless finish. What a gorgeous shade. I wasn’t sure after you talked about it yesterday, but on you it’s beautiful. She looks very pretty. Thanks for sharing with us.
