Scorcher is my first and only MAC nail polish. I was a bit wary of MAC nail polishes since I have heard a lot of negative reviews concerning pigmentation and duration and basically quality. After trying this, I am POSITIVE I will be expanding my MAC nail polish collection! I love this! I love the texture! Goes on smooth and yes, it is sheer, need a couple coats to get it to the color of the bottle, but I LOVE IT! I actually like it better than my Sephora by OPI nail polishes! It just goes on easier and smoother, less bubbles, and feels better on my nails. I can't really explain it. I would also like to say that I am a horrible nail painter, I take FOREVER to do my nails. I always mess up because the Sephora by Opi texture is thick, but not opaque enough to only do one coat. By the time I do the second coat, I messed them up, the paint ruined, nails chipped...disaster. The MAC one dries faster because it is thinner in consistency and it is pretty pigmented. I still do two sometimes three coats, just like with Sephora by OPI. It just depends on the polish. Either way, Scorcher is my favorite nail polish so far. I recommend MAC nail polishes...of course I will not stop buying Sephora by OPI nail polishes (one because MAC's nail polish collection is quite small, and two, because HELLO!, OPI has the cutest names! :) ).
For MAC crosswires, what can I say. I am a neutrals girl, never stray from pinks and berry's that basically my lips but better. Since it is Summer and since I am beginning to be a MAC, Sephora junkee/veteran, I became interested in color. I wanted something with color but not completely over the top. After doing research on temptalia and on makeupalley, I decided on crosswires and I am glad I got it. It is a red with pink undertones, or pink with red undertones. lol. It provides a nice color for my face without looking scandalous or attracting too much attention. I thought it would be hard to pull off color on me since I never have, but crosswires looked lovely! Definitely another love!
P.s. On a more recent haul, I went to MAC and bought entice and lust lipglass, honesty eyeshadow, and sweetie lipstick...off the top of my head, I think that's it. From Sephora, I picked up NARS nepal eyeshadow, and Sephora by Opi's let's do lunch, and some other pink one. My interest in nail polishes is really starting to pick up. I might post pics at a later time. I really love entice lipglass, a creamy, orangey, peachy color. Love. Lust reminds me a lot like viva glam v, but non shimmery, and creamy. Honesty eyeshadow is lovely as well, a golden brown glittery eyeshadow. I can wear it on its own but I like the way it looks over an eyeshadow better. So far, I have only worn let's do lunch and it is a beautiful peachy pink color. Love.
