It retails for $57.00CAD/has been getting mainly rave reviews but a handful of not so good ones, so I decided to add mine to the bunch.

I prepped my skin by applying a sheet mask (My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid) the night before and emu oil about 20 minutes before application as I heard that this foundation clings to dry patches.

Based on reviews of the foundation I decided to try it once using my fingers to apply and another using a beauty blender, both times I did not use a primer or a setting powder.

Here’s a before and after. I used my fingers initially as I’d heard that NARS products were meant to be applied with makeup from Reddit.

Regardless of the other selection of lipsticks other brands carry MAC has a special place in many of our hearts. They were an industry leader in creating products that worked for women of all different colouring and still have the largest lipstick range of any brand I believe.

Here are some of my top picks for WOC.

MAC lipsticks for dark skin

I subscribe to the school of thought there are two types of scrubs in this world:

[1. Foaming] and [2. Moisturizing]

and I’m a fiend for the idea of scrubs. I like that they’re supposed to exfoliate my skin and leave it feeling squeaky clean. But, I often find that they aren’t soapy enough or they’re too thick and then I feel like I have a layer of film left on my skin.
