Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer - Adjust

I LOVE this primer. I have used all of MAC's other primers which are very good, but I had to try this one. I loved the colour in it and to be honest, I felt I was getting some good coverage out of it, like the tinted moisturizer. I definitely recommend this primer and type.
This is a very good foundation brush, I was able to blend my makeup out evenly and get good coverage. However, I'm used to applying my makeup with my hands, and I just found that applying my makeup with a brush was taking forever, so the last part of applying my makeup I just used my hands again. I just found that I was able to get more foundation on my face from my hands than makeup from my brush to my face. However, this is a very good brush though.
I love this foundation. I was using the Studio Fix Fluid before and this foundation is so much better. My skin looked flawless and I didn't have to put as much on as I did with the Studio Fix Fluid. I found the colour was much better because with the Studio Fix Fluid, I was NC15, and I found it too yellow and too light for me, and the NW15 was too pink and dark. I bought this in 1.5 which I thought was going to be too light for me, but it was pretty much perfect, it was a nice light shade but had subtle pink tones in it as well. I found it applied really smoothly all over my face and my face didn't look cakey and it didn't feel cakey. I also found with the Studio Fix Fluid that the next day I would wake up with more blackheads and some breakouts, I wore this foundation last night and I haven't broken out or gained more blackheads, it was almost as if I didn't wear any foundation at all. I also have very oily skin, and I found it did help control that, my face didn't look overally shiny, however, the only thing was, my face felt a little oily after a while, but luckily enough it didn't look oily at all. I had this makeup on for 12 hours and it lasted so long and so well. However, even though I love this foundation, I would still like to see how the Pro Longwear foundation works since I have also heard great reviews about that one. The only thing I didn't like about this makeup, was that it is MAC's most expensive foundation.
Blush -MAC - Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Flirt and Tease

This blush is beautiful. I have a fair-medium skin tone, so it is a bit dark, but if you smooth it out, it is very pretty. I used this on top of my liquid foundation and other powders, so I found it a bit hard to even it out and smooth it out so that the colour wasn't as bold and dark. I will try this on my bare skin which I'm sure will look much better.
This is a beautiful colour, I used it on my eyes and thought it was very pretty. However, I find eyeshadows much prettier and bold instead of this Tan Pigment. I haven't used it on my face yet for a highlighter or bronzer, etc, but I find it is a little too light to do anything on the face. I wanted to buy the Chocolate Brown pigment, but my MAC store didn't have it, so I decided to buy the Tan Pigment instead.
Loose Powders -MAC - Magically Cool Liquid Powder in Honey Rose

I bought this in Honey Rose, and I find the colour so beautiful and I love the texture and cool liquid feeling. However, I have not tried this on my bare skin yet, I have only applied it on top of my foundation and other powders, and I find once I put it on my face, it just stuck there, I couldn't blend it or smooth it out and I felt as I was trying to smooth it out and spread it, it was removing the makeup from underneath, it probably wasn't, but since it has a liquid feel, it felt like it was washing my other makeup off. Also, I wasn't really sure what to do with the powder anyways, I used it as a highlighter, but since I couldn't spread it out it just looked like it was blobbed on my face instead of my face glowing and having beautiful colour. I will try this on my face when I have no foundation or other powder, which I'm sure will work out much better. As for the other colours, I did not purchase Truth & Light because it was too light and pale looking, and Cajun was too orange and coppery, so if you are going to purchase this, I would recommend Honey Rose since it has some beige/bronze and pink in it.
I love this eyeshadow. I find it so beautiful. I love how the colour is so natural but yet bold at the same time.
Self Tanners -Clinique - Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion Light - Medium

I was really disappointed with this. I found it was very streaky and orange, and when I applied it, it wasnt very bold, which I'm glad since it was orangy, but if I had liked the colour, I would still have been disappointed. I also felt that when I applied it that I felt oily and it felt like it took hours and hours to dry.
This is my favourite lipstick!! Its so nice and fair!
I love this product! Its so nice and dark bronze, I prefer darker bronze colours instead of golden and I thought this was perfect and blended well!
I love this colour! I think it is so beautiful and bold! The only problem I had with it, was that the eyeshadow looks so beautiful in its case, but when you go to apply it, I find it doesnt match what it looks like in the case, I find when I apply it, it is still beautiful, but it appears more dark and has more black to it instead of red/purple tones.
This colour is pretty and bold, however I dont wear it much, because I find when I want somthing bold, I want a colour that is darker and richer than this, and when I dont want something that is bold, this is too bold. I do use it, but it isnt my favourite colour.
I love this colour. Its very nice and beautiful, yet subtle at the same time, its not too dramatic but adds a nice shimmer to your eyes!
I love this eyeshadow so much! It such a nice bronze colour and it stays on all day.
LOVE THIS!! I bought this about a year and a half ago, and I still have it, I have only had to purchase it once and be able to use it for over a year now. I find it gets rid of dark circles, any blemishes or red spots, highlights under my eye and makes it a lot easier to apply my eye makeup, love it!
