REVIEW - Mac Prep + Prime Fix +

It is not a secret that I am pretty much obsessed with Mac products. The products always look beautiful and the quality is amazing. So after hearing a lot of raving about the Mac Prep + Prime Fix + for many years now, I finally decided to get one for myself and see if it is worth the hype.

First of all, I love the fact that this product is so versatile. Because it can be used in so many different ways, this product has quickly become a staple in my everyday makeup routine.

I love spraying a few sprays on my face right before I apply my foundation. This way it acts as a base for the makeup that is put on top. It refreshes the skin, does a great job at moisturizing and makes your foundation go on a lot smoother. Fix + has definitely become my favorite primer of the moment.

We all have those days where we feel like the makeup you just put on, looks a bit too powdery. Fix + is the perfect solution! With just a few sprays of this, it makes a huge difference. My makeup looks less powdery and gets a more radiant and glowy finish, which I love. Not only does your makeup look better, it also lasts longer, because the Fix + also acts as a makeup setting spray.

Another way I love using the Mac Fix + is by spraying a bit of it on a makeup sponge and then blending my concealer with it. It makes the concealer blend so smoothly and makes it look way more natural. Also, when using the Fix + on a makeup sponge it prevents too much of the foundation or concealer from sinking into the sponge, so that more of it actually goes on your face!

I truly recommend checking out the Mac Prep + Prime Fix + if you haven’t yet. Not only does it feel really refreshing and does it smell amazing, it also makes makeup look better and last longer!

The Mac Prep + Prime Fix + retails for $22.00/£17.00/€16.50

REVIEW - Kiko Intensely Lavish lip pencil 02 Pretty Mauve

I have been wanting the Mac Soar lip pencil for quite a while now, but as it seems to ALWAYS be sold out, I was trying to find a good dupe. And I think I might have found one! As Kiko just came out with their new Rebel Romantic collection, which is absolutely stunning, I was browsing through all the new products and stumbled upon the Intensely Lavish lip pencil. After looking up a lot of swatches, I figured that the shade 02 Pretty Mauve was pretty similar to Mac Soar, so I decided to pick it up and try it out!

This lip pencil is the creamiest lip pencil I have tried yet. It is incredibly creamy, which makes it really easy to apply to the lips and it is pretty much fool proof. It is really pigmented and the shade is absolutely beautiful. I love pairing this with a nude lipstick to create a gorgeous dark nude shade. The lip liner is very matte and even though it lasts a long time it does feel quite drying on the lips after wearing it for some time. So I do suggest pairing it with a moisturizing lipstick on top, or maybe use a lip balm before applying the lip pencil.

If you are on the look out for a Mac Soar dupe, definitely check this lip pencil out! Not only is the packaging with the rose gold lid stunning, it is an amazing product and is only a fraction of the price!

The Kiko Intensely Lavish lip pencil in the shade 02 Pretty Mauve retails for $9.00/£4.90/€4.90
