Georgio’s Review of Mac Cosmetics

One of the many perks of my job as a makeup artist is that makeup companies from all over the globe send the latest and greatest beauty products for me to test. This month I put my favorite, M.A.C Cosmetics, to the test!

I always say “beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin.” It’s true. Remember to hydrate your skin and don’t forget neglect your eye area. Finding the right eye care product can take years off your face! I would like to introduce my secret weapon (especially for photo shoots) and in my opinion, the most effective eye cream on the market: Fast Response Eye Cream. This eye cream is insane! It is a super-charged, caffeinated eye cream that de-puffs, erases the look of dark circles, firms, soothes and softens skin around the eye area. The best part- it has special light diffusing optics that act like magic to fade away lines. Price $30.00

Next up is: the Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation from MAC cosmetics. This is a creamy, luxurious, GEL-based foundation that provides medium to high buildable coverage. End result is a beautiful natural satin finish that is excellent for normal to dry skin types. This gorgeous foundation is so hydrating that it instantly revitalizes your skin while keeping it looking smooth, soft and plush. It is also long-wearing and water resistant- making it an excellent weapon for combating the hot, sticky weather we are accustomed to here in South Florida. Price $29.50

Finally, If your looking for a great blot powder to absorb that extra shine that always seems to find its way to ‘peek’ through your finished face- this is the one for you: The Blot Powder by M.A.C. Cosmetics, is a unique pressed powder designed primarily to provide shine control without adding any noticeable color or texture. This ‘quick fix’ sets foundation, finishes faces and is even suitable for men needing a little shine control. It is also excellent for frequent touchups throughout the day as it does not buildup. Blot powder contains Mica and Silica to absorb excess oils and reduce shine on the skin’s surface. Price $21.00

Oh, and don’t forget to MAKE A STATEMENT! Our favorite way to do that at LadyLash Studios is with a true red lip. So, this fall unleash your inner Pin-up and try The Satin MAC Red Lipstick to create the ultimate glamour lip! Move over Marilyn Monroe. Price$14.00 All Mac products can be found online at http://www.maccosmetics.com or visit your local MAC store at the Boca Town Center Mall (561) 620-8554.
