The most fabulous liquid eyeliner that I have come across (and I am a makeup junkie). The colour payoff is great, super easy to apply, chic packaging (shiny black with gold writing- reminiscent of Chanel) and pretty cheap, $7-9. Highly recommend this wonderful product!
Hmm... I'm so on the fence with this lippie. First off- the price- $30 ($32.76 with tax) is whopping. I never thought that I'd EVER pay this much for a lipstick, even Chanel! Anyways, enough about the ubsurb price. The colour is VERY sheer, pinky/beigey (not nude as the other reviewers stated). I needed 3 coats to get some pigment and I do not have pigmented lips whatsoever. I was mind-boggled why the price was so high- the lippie isn't pigmented. There is no smell (as opposed to the Rouge hydrabase smelling like roses), neither moisturizing nor drying and.... just average. I'm sure you could get this colour in MAC .. let alone NYX to be honest. Besides the regal luxury quality of the packaging, there is nothing else to be spoken of about this lipstick. Not re-purchase status :[
Love, love, love Twinks! It's far from flat and boring. I describe it as superstar brown. Shimmering with dimension and highly pigmented. Absolutley HG status, really versatile and flattering for ANY eye colour. Highly recommended. Great for everyday use to spice thing up (but not too much!).
Absolute HG highlight colour for me. I use it everyday to highlight my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes for an extra pop. So neutral, so versatile and so easy to blend! Loves it.
Wasn't impressed with the shadow. I'm a devoted MAC girl, and this just did not do it for me. I had to apply over 5 coats for this to look pigmented on me (NW35). I have black hair and blue eyes and this made me look like a diseased woman coming out of trash can. Ehk, not flattering at all, IMHO.
I purchased Deep Shade months ago, and was always put off by it for some reason and never used it.. UNTIL RECENTLY! It has become my HG. It's a very matte deep blue (not navy territority) that creates the most amazing looking daytime OR evening time smoky eye. It's especially magnificent on blue eyes.. it gives the extra oomph. I highly recommend this shadow because it's so versatile.. can be paired with any blush shade or lipstick shade as well (preferably nude though). If you're a blue-eyed gal, run to MAC right now and buy this!
Alright, I had extremely high expectations for this product because I saw it on celebrity makeup artist Troy Jensen's (clients include the Kardashian's, Isla Fischer, Matthew McConahey) blog. The picture he included of a model with Line Exact on was flawless and remeniscent of a modern Audrey Hepburn. After applying this product to my own face and looked at my reflection in the mirror I nearly gasped at how ugly and cheap I looked. The line is so streaky and light.. not pigmented at ALL. The stuff is cheap ($6-7) but so not worth it. And on I continue with my search for the perfect black liquid eyeliner.

LOVE this! The packaging alone sold me. Two of my favorite companies combined sold me. This is the blush I hoped NARS Orgasm would be. Perfectly peachy, golden & pinky in one. My only gripe on Fun & Games would be the pigment- it's sheer. I wasn't expecting this from a MAC product but I guess it happens. It's lovely for a fresh look, or paired as a subtle cheek with smokey eyes. I highly recommend this blush because of it's versatality and ability to look fab on all different skin tones.
I finally caved in and bought this product after months of debating it (I don't know why this was). The colour is creamy and pastel.. and frosty. My only complaint on this product is the frost which I should have taken a note from due to "FROST" written on the bottom of the tube. Not a fan of frost. Anyways, the colour is gorgeous and babydoll-esque. It somewhat accentuates the flakes in your lips, (mine are barely visible sans lipstick) but I find that common in MAC lippies. If you're looking for a creamy, babydoll pink with frost, then this is your pick!

Love it, love it! There are already a lot of reviews on this product I just wanted to add to them. I took off one lippie because I'm not too crazy about the brush. Other than that, pure genius! EXTREMELY comparable to MAC's Fluidline.
Love it, there isn't much to be said that hasn't already been said. The one thing I can add is that I purchased my Orgasm blush almost 4 years ago, (yes you read that correctly) and I haven't even put a dent in it yet. Looks gorgeous on everyone. It's you, but better.
This is an OKAY foundation. Nothing special to be completely honest. Coming from MAC, you would expect a lot more. A makeup artist applied this for me in the boutique with a brush in hand. She used NW35 on me, which blended perfectly. I have very oily skin, and she tried explaining that THIS IS MY BE ALL END ALL FOUNDATION. Truth behold, I did not notice any difference from my Maybelline Pure Makeup. An hour after application, my skin is soo shiny. Ehk, I expected a lot more from this product. It's over priced, the packaging stinks (heavy glass bottle & no pump) and has cakey buildable coverage. Hate to bring down the ratings =(
Had to take off 1 lippie for the price. Bleh, love NARS, hate the way it cleans out my bank account. Anywho, bitching aside, I LOVE TURKISH DELIGHT! Wow, I am have been lemming this product for months ever since I found out that Kim Kardashian wears it. I envy her makeup, so this was simply in the cards for me. The colour is a light, milky pink shade, bubble gum-esque. Nude's are usually extremely hard to find for me..and in general. They usually wash you out & give you that dead girl look, not cute. This just brings out your inner sex kitten. Lovely, amazing, sexy, even stunning....and STICKY...and short wearing. Mhm, this stuff is indeed sticky and doesn't really have much lasting power. If you can deal with that, then go for the gold...er Turkish Delight.
Believe it or not, I have only heard of "Mata Hari" once before I purchased at Sephora. I went in lemming "Angelika" (around the same colour family w/ SPARKLES ...harsh I know), tried it on and thought it was a bit too pale for my olive skin. Next thing I know, I'm trying "Mata Hari" and falling in love. The colour looks super-barbie pink in the pan but on my cheeks it morphed into an angelic, dewy, NATURAL, instant mini-makeover. My only gripe is the price.. $25? Please, cut it out NARS! I am a NARS feen yes, but the prices slay me! Overall, this IS the blush you need to make a beauty of yourself =) Love it.
So cheap, so pigmented, lovely sparkle sheen (not teen-y bopper status), the smell is to die for! I have mine in "Candy Shop". It's a sweet coral color that looks especially amazing on olive/tan skin tones.
