This was during the day so I tried to keep the smokey eye quite subtle.
MAC Cream colour base:
I was actually not as impressed with this as I thought I was going to be. The colour was quite nice and it was a more interesting alternative to plain black. However even with a primer underneath and some black eye shadow on top it still creased really quickly. I don't know if there is some secret that I don't know about in terms of getting it to stay put? the CCB's that MAC now sell are more targeted as highlighters and blush bases which I think would suit the formulation a lot more. This is the first product I have tried from MAC and though I am not really impressed it certainly hasn't put me off trying more, I'm thinking maybe a lipstick next?
B. Intense colour lipstick:
Firstly, I must mention the awesome packaging, instead of being your standard lipstick tube with a lid. This is a tube, and you have to push down on the end of the lipstick to make it then pop out so that you can then pull it out (like the end of a click-y pen). I can't explain it very well, but it basically means no more top-less lipsticks accidentally rolling about in my make up bag and getting ruined. This is a creamy, pigmented lipstick which stays quite glossy but eventually dries to quite a satin like finish. The lasting power is pretty good, I topped up after my Starbuck's, which is standard really. To keep it perfect I would probably top up every few hours as it is lighter than my natural lip and quite a soft, glossy formulation. I will definitely be checking out more of the B. range, especially as it is currently on a introductory price offer.
