@abstraktgirl  Absolutley stunning haul which product is your favorite so far?

Re: Flawless February 2024 Hauls

Guerlain's Oil is my fav because 14 years after taking my profile picture below (wow I really need to update it), I have sagging but fewer fine lines on my eyelids. I'm afraid my crow's feet aren't visible in the photo below, but they were there.

Posting twice in a row (splitting my makeup and skincare posts) to avoid BIC/Lithiumโ€™s character count error. 

 

Ulta 5x points on lipstick: 

 

I had a generous gift card to spend, and Iโ€™d like to thank the gifter for funding my lipstick addiction. :DI had a generous gift card to spend, and Iโ€™d like to thank the gifter for funding my lipstick addiction. ๐Ÿ˜„

Swatches & notes: 

Spoiler

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color shade 211 Subtile - nice but overpriced. It applied evenly and smoothly with no fragrance. Felt comfy but slightly heavyโ€”neither wax lips nor featherweight, just more โ€œI can very noticeably feel this on my lipsโ€ than Iโ€™d like. During the 30 minutes I wore it at home, Subtile had begun to fade and settle in my lip lines. I hadnโ€™t eaten anything during that brief wear test, and all I drank was a cup of oolong tea. The color didnโ€™t transfer much to my cup though. Huh. This is the first shade Iโ€™ve tried from this lipstick line, and itโ€™ll be my last. Itโ€™s not terrible, just very overpriced. 

Chanel Rouge Coco Flash Hydrating Vibrant Shine Lip Color, shades 128 Mood and 92 Amour - moderately shiny, demi-sheer, emollient balmy comfort. The smaste on these is ridiculous, but it dissipates within 10 minutes. I wore Mood on Thursday and, as expected, it performed more like a tinted balm than a long-wearing lipstick. It lost its shine after an hour or so of wear, probably because I was drinking coffee on the go. No bleeding/feathering though, and my lips didnโ€™t feel dry until a lot of Mood had worn away. I wouldnโ€™t spend this much money out of pocket on a tinted balm Iโ€™d have to reapply several times throughout the dayโ€”but since this was a gift card purchase and met my expectations, I canโ€™t complain. 

PAT McGRATH LABS MatteTranceโ„ข Lipstick Full Blooded - a shade I kept resisting because I already have LuxeTrance shade Wrecked. But, 5x points on lipstick and Iโ€™m a sucker for berry shades. In person, Full Bloodedโ€™s deeper/darker and more burgundy than Wrecked, so theyโ€™re not exact dupes. I lip-swatched Full Blooded after the 2 Prada lipsticks and man, the extreme ease of applying a MatteTrance vs. the Pradas was amazing. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ Iโ€™ll talk more about the Pradas in their section of this post. They reminded me why Iโ€™ve loved Patโ€™s bullet lipsticks since their initial launch. I mean, thereโ€™s a reason I own so many MatteTrance (and LuxeTrance) shades.

Fude Beauty, MAC, and Nordstrom: 

 

Had to use some Nordy Notes before they expired so hey, why not get some Prada for $0 out of pocket?Had to use some Nordy Notes before they expired so hey, why not get some Prada for $0 out of pocket?

Swatches & notes: 

Spoiler

Tanseido AKA Series MQ10 Eyeshadow Brush - a Japanese weasel hair brush thatโ€™s as versatile as kolinsky. Iโ€™ve been loving my KQ12S kolinsky brush for concealer and cream eyeshadows, so I bought the MQ10 for the same tasks; it has a thicker shape with longer bristles, so it might be even better for undereye concealer. 


MAC:

 

  • Macximal Silky Matte Lipstick shade No Coral-ation - this is the reformulated matte bullet. The caseโ€™s silver brand-engraved band reminds me of MACโ€™s flat-top bullet case. But the lipstick reminds me a lot of the Powder Kiss bullet formula. This shade applied streaky and was hard to even out for swatch photos. I should pick up a deeper shade to see if this is a formula-wide issue or just a light shade issue. But first, I need to compare No Coral-ation to one of my Powder Kisses and see how similar the formulas are. 

  • Molten Metal Highlighter shade Many Moons Aglow - I wasnโ€™t going to buy this, but then @SportyGirly125 swatched it in a hauls post and here we are. ๐Ÿ˜… It has a very subtle peachy pink flip and a beautiful non-glittery finish.

Prada: 

 

  • Dimensions Multi-Effect Eyeshadow Palettes, 2 Profusion and 4 Poetry refill - these shadows are quite nice! The satins and metallics are beautifully smooth, and the metallics are true metallics, not glitter bombs; they have a silky feel instead of a wet feel. These shadows arenโ€™t full-power pigmented like, say, Natasha Denonaโ€™s, Linda Hallbergโ€™s, or Coloured Raineโ€™s. But theyโ€™re no slouch: theyโ€™re impactful yet buildable, so they should be easy to work with. Iโ€™ll find out soon enough. 

  • Monochrome Soft Matte Lipstick shade O177 Flamingo - looks neon orange in its case but applied as a beautifully muted orange coral on my lips. Felt comfy too, not drying at all. No streaking or feathering either. But the bullet shape gave me trouble: the tipโ€™s a wide triangle (to match Pradaโ€™s logo) that slopes downward; behind that triangle, the bulletโ€™s tapered. This gives the tip a very wide straight edge thatโ€™s hard to control during application. I wish Prada had reversed the slope of the logo triangle, so bullet edge would be a triangle point instead of a wide straight line. Luckily, the Soft Matte formulaโ€™s sheer/muted enough to be kinda forgiving during a messy application. 

  • Monochrome Hyper Matte Lipstick shade P57 Ultraviolet - this is where I began swearing at whoever designed the shape of these bullets. No matter how I flipped the bullet to find an easier application edge, that wide straight edge got in the way. I had to do lots of post-application cleanup, especially around my cupidโ€™s bow. Iโ€™m annoyed enough to consider reshaping this bulletโ€™s tip (with a knife) myself. Before I do that, Iโ€™ll practice more with this dang bullet shape and try to figure out which edge/angle works best for me.

    Right after I took that swatch photo, I removed Ultraviolet and applied Pat McGrathโ€™s Full Blooded, and it was like collapsing into my comfy bed after a week of sleeping on an unfamiliar painful hotel mattress. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I mean, Pradaโ€™s Hyper Matte formulaโ€™s not painful: itโ€™s fairly comfy (though I doubt I could handle it without my usual lip balm underneath) but I wonโ€™t call it hydrating or moisturizing. And this shade is gorgeous in person, with less patchiness than most deep purple lipsticks have. But the bullet shape is a prime example of form over function: someone decided itโ€™s more important to slap Pradaโ€™s triangle on the bullet tip than to ensure everyone can easily apply the lipstick. (Yes, Iโ€™m aware there are people who have no trouble applying this lipstick. Yay for them! Though I wonder how many of them have to do post-application cleanup or โ€œperfectโ€ their lip shape afterwardโ€”2 things I rarely have to do with a bullet lipstick by any brand, because most other bullets are shaped for function.) 

 

I canโ€™t see that Ultraviolet swatch without also seeing the cupidโ€™s bow struggle. Why, Prada. Why.I canโ€™t see that Ultraviolet swatch without also seeing the cupidโ€™s bow struggle. Why, Prada. Why.

@WinglessOne Great hauls and swatches. The eyeshadows look so smooth and the shades are beautiful. I don't see the new Mac matte formula on the Sephora Canada site yet but if they do I think I might pick up the shade Marrakesh. I love the PM lippies also. Enjoy!

Thank you @Mellmars1185 ! Marrakesh is a goodie: I have that shade in a different MAC lipstick formula. Hope you like it when you try it!
