Yesterday I pull out my mark. Femme 4 quad. I love the dark colors of the quad but the pigment quality is poor. You layer and layer and never get the intensity of what you see in the palette.I almost put it up for swap on MUA. I'd only used it once maybe twice without the results I wanted.
But I was inspired by a popular makeup YouTuber( I won't say her name). She did two different smokey eyes vids with tons of MAC products, but it didn't look like nothing. She didn't even blend enough to make it smoky. Then, she put on a harsh colored lippie and I was thru with her! I was thinking "Hell, I can do that with the junk I got..."
Here's today with the Femme 4, using the charcoal and purple shades with a little UD Asphyxia blended in...VS Garden Sweet Talk l/g in Wild Berries for the lippie.( Fresh Relaxer...stretched 10 weeks...review later!)
Yesterday, I did the charcoal with a The Body Shop Shimmer Cube in Silver blended in ...Stila Guava on the lips....
