Gun & roses(summer)

I like the idea of coupling metalic eyes  with bright lips, like gold with pink.


It’s girly with a twist; I like contrasting finishes; if my shadows are glittery, i like my lips matte, i will wear opaque shadows if i am going to saturate my lips with gloss.

Yes, you can have too much shine/sparkle, no matter how young you are!

MAC mineralize skin finish natural

A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage.

Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day.


This mineral powder is dense in texture, feels rather “gritty” when applied. However, the finish is rather amazing! Its coverage is good enough to hide minor imperfections yet sheer enough to create the illusion of perfectly “bare” skin.

I buff this into my pores – and it has a rather satisfactory “pore minimizing” effect.

It wouldn’t control sebum secretion but when the oil starts breaking through, this powder soaks it up, leaves no greasy shine, but makes my skin looks dewy.

It neither creases into lines, nor oxidizes into deeper shade and has a rather tenacious wear.

In summary, it may not be the best  mineral powder i had ever used but is a great product; reasonably priced, convenient application, amazing finish & long lasting.
