MAC Stylesetter FOTD

Good morning!

This is my FOTD for April 3. Today I'm enjoying (not) the task of getting out warm weather clothes and putting away the winter stuff. Lot's of laundry, sorting, folding, and putting away. I can't believe how much longer it takes with 2 kids. My son doesn't even have most of his spring/summer wardrobe yet and it's still craziness!!
Later on this afternoon he's going to his cousins Birthday party at the bowling alley. It will be Owen's first time bowling. We're ridiculously excited. I wanted a fun look on my face, but low maintenance:

MAC Purposefully Red FOTD & Wear Test

This was my FOTD for yesterday, April 2. We went to a friends house for a party so of course I had to try out the red lippie. Also, it was a perfect opportunity for a wear test.
I'm on allergy overload so I stuck to soda (pop?) all night. However, I'm happy to report that when I came home my red lipstain was still pretty much there! I did reapply the lipglass once because dry lips drive me batty.

Below is my FOTD, Below Ground was all over the lid and ended up being darker than I wanted with a red lip, so I put patina e/s over it. Below Ground GPS and Black Line PGL stayed in place ALL night. We were outside, sweaty, and gross and this makeup lasted. Very pleased.

Wear Test

This is a 2 hour wear test. I wore this through 3 cups of coffee, a lunch of pasta in butter and oil (ewe not healthy, sorry lol), and the general time of chasing after 2 toddlers.
It did fade a bit.

In this pic it's the stain alone:


In this pic it's the stain with clear lipglass on top:


The nice part about these stains is that I didn't have to wipe off to reapply. Lipstick gets cakey and you have to fix yourself to reapply and get it to look smooth. With the stains I didn't have to do that.

All in all, I do love these stains. These are the best ones I've found by FAR. I'm so excited that I finally have a true red stain that doesn't go Berry colored on me!

MAC Art Supplies

Just WOW.

I never in a million years thought I would love the lipstains from this collection.
I'm going back and buying them all.

First things first. From this collection I picked up:
- Purposefully Red Stain
- Stylesetter Stain
- Greengrease GPS
- Dirty GPS
- Below Ground GPS
- Black Line PGL
- Clear Lipglass (of course)

The Stains:

Amazing. Hands down, just wonderful. They go on the lips nicely, I had absolutely no troubles. I'm still wearing Purposefully Red for my "wear test" but so far so good... though it's only been about 20 minutes lol. I'll update on the wear tonight because I'll post an FOTD (since I'm going out!).
I wiped Stylesetter off with a MAC Bulk Wipe and after a few light rubs it came off easily.
The swatches below are directly on unmoisturized lips. No liner... no gloss... just the fabulous Pro Longwear Lipstain Marker!

STYLESETTER

I'm NOT a pink girl usually... but this one... I like it!

PURPOSEFULLY RED

This is the red I've been searching for all my life... and if it stays on... YAY!

The Greasepaint Sticks:

So smooth and soft! They look gorgeous, and they do not wipe off easily. I really had to scrub with the bulk wipes to get them off. My arm hurt when I was done lol I'm definately going to work one into my evening FOTD. I may get Zinc Zone to add to my collection. Definately need a back up of Below Ground. My FAV!

GREENGREASE, BELOW GROUND, DIRTY


The Pearlglide Liner:

I only got Black Line here. I really don't get into the colors so much and I have a ton of liners. This one is gorgeous and totally backup worthy. It took longer to scrub off than the GPS. I scrubbed HARD and it's still on my arm lol
Below I compared it to a few things that I thought would be similar.. they're really not. Get it while you can!

ORPHEUS KOHL POWER, BLACK KARAT KOHL POWER, BLACK LINE PGL, DIRTY GPS


What did you pick up from this collection? What are your opinions of it???
