This goes on orange but actually fades into a natural peachy color. I do have to apply silica powder over it because my skin is oily. I apply this blush with a Mac 187 very lightly and buff it on.
I really like this color for smokey purple, greys or even plum eye looks. I use it over Syrup lipstick. See my picture above. It is not a must-have but I am glad I picked it up. Found it at my CCO for $10.25.
This is the only product to keep my skin looking presentable during the day. Nothing else works. I have tried high and low end products and still end up looking greasy after 4 hours. This stuff works so well. After a few hours, my forehead does get a little shiny but after touching up with pressed powder or a blotting paper, I'm fine for the rest of the day. Highly recommend this product for combo/oily skin girls.
No complaints about this one at all. Love it!. This is a true gold on me. Doesn't turn orangey like Amber Lights does. Applies effortlessly. I like wearing this with a brown in the crease such as Mac Espresso or NYX Deep Brown and highlight with Mac Blanc Type. NC 43-44 for reference.
I love Off the Radar. It's like a brownish orange. Slight shimmer but not over-the-top at all. The consistency is easy to work with. I love to pack it on the lid and use a brown or purple in the crease. You can make the color stand out or look subtle depending on what color base you use first. Highly recommend for NC 30-50.
I am in love with corals and oranges this summer and had nothing in my collection like Crush on You. I get lots of compliments when wearing this especially on the toes. Like another reviewer mentioned, you do need 2-3 coats to get it opaque.
Like others have said, this is a dupe for Mac Viva Glam V. It's just thinner in consistency and does not last as long. I like wear this with mac Spice lipliner. I don't think I will re-purchase this because it doesn't last long. I much rather use VGV but for the price, it is nice:)
I love Spice liner. The color matches my lips well and goes with lots of lipsticks that I own. I love wearing it with Viva Glam V or Soft and Slow lipglass.

I have tried this and the LM tinted moisturizer and I like this a lot better. The coverage, color match and the price is what sold me. Like the previous reviewer, I use dark moisture tint all over then set with msf in medium/dark. I do have to touch up throughout the day because my skin is oily, but I don't mind. I am an NC 43-44.
In my opinion, this is not a must-have gloss. It looks nice over bright lippies like Vegas Volt or even Morange but on it's own, its just average. It shows up as a sheer orange.
I have two samples of this pigment. I love it so much. I like to wear it as a lid color with Embark in the crease and Grain as a highlight. I also wear Artifact paintpot as a base which makes the color stand out. Sadly, Maroon is discontinued so I will have to ration out what I have left lol. For reference, I am NC 43-44 and Toast in Revlon CS fdtn.
I like Dipdown a bit more than blacktrack. It's a very dark brown and a great alternative to black eyeliner. The consistency is a bit drier than blacktrack for some reason but I have no problems with that. I have been using the same jar for maybe 8 months and it's still in great shape. I will be buying another when I run out. Use a Mac 263 for best results:)
Copper is gorgeous as a bronzer with a light hand. I always get compliments when wearing it. I like mixing it with NYX Terra Cota. I can only wear Copper in the summer when I get a really deep tan. I prefer this over my Mac Refined Golden bronzer. (NC 43-44)
I like this shade for the fall and winter months. It reminds me a lot of Pop Mode lipglass which is more pigmented and lasts longer. Decorative is a bit more burgundy but still in the same color family. I would not buy this again only because I prefer Pop Mode over this.
I did not intend to buy this product or any other product from To The Beach collection however, I stopped by Mac to glance at it during it's pre-release. I had to have it. It's such a gorgeous coral with a gold sheen to it. It also has a pink side to it which can be used as a highlighter. I simply swirl my Sigma 187 around on both colors and apply lightly as a blush. Some people complain that the color is too bright. It's just right on me. (NC43-44)
