Pat McGrath Xtreme Gold 002 Sublime Skin Highlighter Review & Swatches

Xtreme Gold 002 Pat McGrath Xtreme Gold 002 Sublime Skin Highlighter ($60.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a rich, deeper gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was quite pigmented where a little went a long way. The texture was smooth, firm but not stiff, and blendable, though it’ll work best with a moderate-handed approach and/or a moderately-dense brush due to the gel-powder formula (which is inherently firmer in the pan bu...

MAC Lovers Only & Dallas Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Lovers Only MAC Lovers Only Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deep, raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a luminous sheen. It seemed to have the most miniscule amount of pearl in it–not enough to be overtly shimmery but a little something extra. The texture was lightweight, lightly emollient but not too slippery, which ensured it applied evenly and delivered nearly opaque coverage in one stroke but didn’t slide around dur...

MAC Get the Hint & Sweet Deal Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Get the Hint MAC Get the Hint Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was slightly dense but not overly thick, so it applied comfortably across my lips and didn’t separate noticeably along my deeper lip lines while delivering full color coverage. I would recommend exfoliating prior to using this shade, though, as it had more poten...

The consistency was lightweight, spreadable, and felt more like a gloss than a liquid lipstick. It lasted ...
