MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation

MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation ($29.50 for 1 fl. oz.) is the newest addition to MAC’s impressive range (at least in number!) of foundations, and it comes to the market with some pretty lofty claims. It’s designed to give up to fifteen hours of wear in any environmental condition while still being lightweight and delivering sheer to medium coverage. The finish is considered “natural,” which isn’t matte but neither dewy — it’s not Studio Fix Fluid (matte!) nor Mineralize Satinfinish (satin… dewy).

MAC Venomous Villains: Discussion

I know many of you are getting ready to head out to Venomous Villains’ unveiling parties across the U.S., and I thought it might be fun to create a place for everyone to discuss the collection.  Last minute decisions, hauls, wish lists… ask for recommendations or insight from other readers.  Even if you’re not going to an unveiling, feel free to join in with your thoughts, to-buy lists, or what have you.

Chatter away! :)

MAC Venomous Villains Cheat Sheet

MAC Venomous Villains Cheat Sheet

With so many products, some shades with very obvious dupes, and price increases (just for this launch as far as I know), I thought a compilation might help.  All of the descriptions of each shade are mine–they are taken directly from the reviews I did.  You can check off items you’re interested in, write your own notes in the provided section, and be reminded of potential dupes, repromotes, or permanent shades in the launch.  I kept it simple in black and white to make it printer-friendly!
