Lagoon Femshayma picks MAC Cosmetic’s Pro Paintstick Palette as his Product of the Week – the secret behind his creative and colourful looks

Lagoon Femshayma is a DJ, performer, and Dazed contributor. When he’s not mukbanging for bitcoin, you can find him broadcasting for the London dolls and cooking Szechuan sweet potato noodles, while doing his best Dawn the Jockey tribute act. Here, he shares his choice for Product of the Week – a weekly round-up of the Dazed Beauty team and wider community’s must-have buys. 


Brand: MAC Cosmetics 

Product: Pro Paintstick Palette 

Price: £60 


I had tried the individual paint sticks before and thought they were STUNUTHA, so when I found that I could get all 12 colours in one spot I simply had to get one (it was also on sale). I use it for everything from my base with highlights and contours, to achieving sexy and funny lip and eye looks and even carving out a cunty black brow. 

This product promises to transport you out of the mundanity of everyday life and into the shoes of someone who is above the drama and conflama! It makes me feel like I just choked Armour King to death with my blue thighs. I’ve been using this product for over a year, and it’s finally starting to hit pan. 

This is the best full coverage multicolour cream palette I’ve been able to find, and its price is sensational for the quality and the range! My skin appears blended, smooth, and blue (sometimes red or green too) and it’s your best bet for creating an infinitesimal range of high octane looks, all in one place! 


It feels like… Whipped demon nut <3. 

If this product was a song, it would be… “Apple Juice Kissing” by Deee-Lite – listen and you’ll understand. 

If I was communicating this product to an alien only using hand gestures, I would… Make a peace sign and stick my tongue out the corner of my mouth, giving year 8 Photo Booth feels.
