MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion - Page 70

post #2071 of 2161

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

I could use some help. I tend to have problems applying matte MAC eyeshadows without them looking a bit blotchy. Today I'm wearing Sassy Grass over Painterly PP. Was this a mistake? Should I just wear it over a naked lid? Should I be applying it wet?

nooooo! don't apply it wet. matte shadows tend to freak out and go weird if you get them wet - so that means not even dampening your brush i'm afraid however when i use sassy grass i just use udpp as a base and nothing more. then i pack it on with a 239 brush

You're kidding me. That's why I've been having so many issues with Shock-a-holic. Oops!

I'll have to remember that.

Thanks!

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

I think mattes just suck up any moisture, it's just like have soggy chips!

I think Painterly can be a pain in the butt too though, it tends to eat up vibrant colours, especially if a lot of blending/swiping is going on. Kinda annoying tbh.

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

Yeah? I almost always use Painterly as a base...then again, I also mainly use non-MAC loose eye shadows.

I recall having the same problem with another matte shadow over UDPP that just did not want to smooth out. I may just be better off putting directly on my lids and hoping for the best.

I haven't noticed this with Painterly...

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

Huh, that sucks:-( I never had an issue with Painterly....It's my most used base and I really love it! I want to get a few other paint pots though.

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

Hmmm.. thats kinda weird tbh. I wonder if it could be because my painterly is now quite old?

paint pots dry very smooth and dry if you get what i mean, so try something sticky like a gps or udpp or a white eyeliner, to just make the lid sticky and then pat it on instead of swiping, hope this helps x

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

I'm so impressed by Bold&Brash l/g!
I only need one dip to get enough gloss for opaque result on my lips and the staying power is amazing. I'm not even sure I'd call it a gloss with such a thickness

I swear my lips were still bright red after my dinner last night and even the stain it left on the side of my drinking glass was "lighter" than with other lipglosses. And I was so happy the glitter stays on my lips and I don't find it all over my face.


But how do I find Gimme That?! I'm getting desperate coz it seems to be sold out everywhere..

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

When I went on MAC's website, Gimme That! was gone!
post #2086 of 2161

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

Gimme That! has gone on the UK site too.. weird cause the other 5 are still there!

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

I got Ban This today - it's gorgeous!!! It was my consolation purchase because I missed out on the proucts I wanted from vv. The Dare to Wear lipglasses are all so beautiful - I hope MAC brings them back, with additional colours too - a deep, sparkling blood red would be great (maybe the Peacocky collection will be similar?)

If you can't find Ban This!, try layering Funtabulous d/g over a purple based lipstick. It will give you a really great, bright, sparkly purple. I love it over Night Violet.

Re: MAC - Dare To Wear Discussion

Same, but over Violetta - it's yummy!

I have layered Funtabulous d/g over Violetta l/s and I love that combo so much! I bet Night Violet Matten Lipstick and Ban This! DTW lipglass looked gorgeous!

Now I went back to using So Bad today and I love it over Electric Fuchsia l/g!! Now I love So Bad and glad I have another! I didn't like it layered alone or with lipstick. It's just that it needs to be layered over a gloss.
post #2094 of 2161

Well, I wanted to b/u Gimme That! but its gone!!!

 

Boo hoo!!

 

I guess I will use mine sparingly.

 

I have GAT and some other wonderful pinks I can wear.

 

Gosh dag it!

Wearing lime & sassy grass today. Wanted a green look. Got one. winks.gif

 

Lime & Sassy Grass

 

Since everyone always leaves eyebrow disclaimers... I'm growing mine in, that's why they're so scary

Love this look! Sassy Grass never looks as good on me, unfortunately. ssad.gif

I love Sassy Grass! I have paired it up with One-Off eyeshadow, Sweet & Punchy, Rated "R", Gilded Green and Humid and it's so pretty!!!
