I liked MAC Patina, i LOVE this. I use it directly over painterly paint pot and I haven't experienced much fall out with that method. Its my new favorite daytime shadow, just add black mascara and your done. stylish but office-friendly. Definately recommend it for blue eyes.
Bronzers -Chanel - Soleil Tan de Chanel - 61 Desert Corail

I love this bronzer. When I wear it, it makes me look healthy and doesn't scream I have got bronzer on. I am fair with yellow undertone. My skin tends to get a bit oily throughout the day but this bronzer does stay put. I also like the fact that it is matte, so it gives a natural glow to the cheeks instead of glittery shine. I apply it with a MAC 109 brush, because I really like to work powders into my skin than just placing them on top. I already bought it again.
I had this brush in my collection for quite some time and I never really used it until a few weeks back and now I even prefer it to my other mac brushes. I use it mainly to really buff bronzer into my skin and it works perfectly. Mine doesnt shed. The perfect choice for really buffing products into the skin to give that healty glow! I Definately recommend this brush. Bought another one for on the go.
I always come back to this mascara. It gives a perfect result everytime. My Lashes are thicker and have more Volume. The Wand is by far my favorite. Its really black and easy to remove. I like to use it with Cliniques Lash Building Primer to make it stay on even longer during the day. Would definately buy it again and highly recommend it.
I am actually totally against shimmer BUT this is brilliant. I am arround NC 20 and I like to wear bronzer but found that most matte ones were quite heavy pigmented (at least for my taste) and a bit blotchy when it comes to blending. This one however is quite sheer, and yes some people pointed that out as a negative, but I really like that. I feel that through the sheerness you can get a really nice glow without obviously wearing bronzer. Yes it contains shimmer but I find it a lot less obvious or gritty as the shimmer in other bronzers. I guess its a little light for darker skin tones but perfect for us palies. Another thing is that lasts really well on my skin. I don't really care for fancy packaging, but I love that it comes with a mirror inside as some others do not. I would recommend It and I will repurchase when I run out of it. EDIT: It doesn't really do a 10 hour day in the summer, shimmers stays, color doesnt.. I now prefer the Chanel Soleil tan de Chanel in Desert Corail...
I love, love, love this blusher. Its a really nice colour gives a lovely glow but it doesn't scream: I am wearing blusher!! Also the brush that it comes with is pretty good in comparison to brushes that usually come with blushers. The only thing that is kinda too much is the rose scent. But with all the the Chanel stuff the quality is amazing, well I guess it has to be for that price. Would definately recommend getting for fair skintones.
This was my latest addition to my brush collection. Mine is very soft and not scratchy at all. Applies the perfect amount of color to the cheek and blends it easily as well. Would definately recommend it and buy again although if you tried a MAC brush before, you know that if you take care of them you'll have them for ages.
My favorite Highlighter.
Love this for placing paint pots and shadow on the eyelid. also perfect to line the lower lashline or smudge out liner.
I love this brush for concealer... use it with select moisturecover and it gives me a flawless result. I feel like the oh so hyped 224 doesn't give me the coverage that I need since it applies the product much sheerer. Would definately recommend it for concealer
I love this as a base for brown shadows. Unfortunately when I wear it alone it fights a tad with my skintone but under a goldy brown shadow it really brings out the gold which is lovely.
I am not a fan of primers. But this I love, I really love. evens out the skintone and brightens the ideas.. and the eyeshadow stays in place.
This was actually one of the first MAC eyeshadows I bought and I love it ever since. Its not to warm for my skintone but really brings out my blue eyes. I usually mix it with groundwork paint pot and era eyeshadow. I am on my second pan, so yes I did buy it again. Great for enhancing blue or green eyes-
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 222 Tapered Blending Brush [DISCONTINUED]

This is my new favorite blending brush. I have a hooded eye and to disguise that, you are supposed to create a shadow behind your lashes and this works perfectly with the finer tip of this brush. You could also use this for a wash of color on the lid. I would definately recommend and buy it again.
This was recommended to me by a MAC Make-up Artist a few months ago, because I wanted an eyeshadow that I could just slap on in a hurry and would also bring out my blue eyes as well as being sophisticated enough for an office environment. And this is what he recommended. It definately has become one of my favorite eyeshadows, it has a sheen to it which is subtle. I use it mostly alone on the lid with a fine line of Blacktied along my Toplashes. A great color for everday. Would definately recommend it.
