Lipstick -MAC - Marquise D' (Blonde Brunette Redhead)
Kavitacaviezel 9/3/2010 9:51:00 PM
I just love this color. I wish MAC would repromote it already. "Cherish" from MAC is a close enough color, except Cherish has no satiny frost-like finish, like Marquise 'D does. Maybe with a frosted lipglass over Cherish, it might be close enough to match Marquise 'D.
I really love this product. I purchased it with the NARS -So Famous collection. It's such a pretty color. It blends beautifully, and I love the sheerness of it, as well as the glitter, which seems to be multi-colored. I just love it.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 131 Duo Fibre Powder & Blush Brush

This brush is really great. I hesitated at first buying this because I felt that my 188 would do the same thing, but NO. This brush picks up less product than the 188, so it deposits the perfect amount of a glittery highlight MSF powder. It also picks up the right amount of a bright cream blush. The 188 picks up more product. This brush is perfect for using on your cheeks to distribute a highly pigmented or glittery product. I would definitely repurchase if I lost this brush.
Eyeliner -MAC - Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner in Almost Noir

WOW! I love this color. I really really do. It's gorgeous. Blackened purple with gold glitter. Truly beautiful. I think it's limited. I need to go back and buy a backup. Staying power is good. I would definitely re-purchase
I purchased a few items from MAC to the Beach bright and early when Macy's opened on launch day and the sales girl has ONE Marine Life left. The store literally was open all of 5 minutes, and there were about 4 gals AHEAD OF ME buying MAC. I passed on it. I felt it was so similar to NARS Orgasm, (which I own) that I didn't purchase. So much hype. Really really cute packaging, but I still passed on it.
Bronzers -MAC - To The Beach Creme Bronzer - Beach Bronze

I love this bronzer. I find the texture very nice. The color I felt was similar to Chanel Bronze Universal, however Beach Bronze has ALOT of gold glitter in it. When blended out on my NC20 skin, I found the glitter much more wearable and I like it. I am very happy with this bronzer, however you get more bang for your buck by just buying the Bronze Universal for $50 (30 grams of product) where as MAC's cream bronzer is $25 for (6 grams of product) I own both and enjoy both. I hope MAC comes out with more cream bronzers in cute packaging but with no glitter, just for variation.
Lip Gloss -MAC - Flurry of Fun (To the Beach Collection)

This is a gorgeous color. Very Sheer coral orange (did I mention sheer) with greenish glitter. Would look nice over Thrills lipstick and Lollipop Loving lipstick. (Anyone remember that color? - Light peach with green glitter) I would not repurchase because I already have so many MAC glosses. UPDATE: I found a similar version at Bath&BodyWorks. Summer Vanillas Liplicious line. They have clear glosses in the tube that have greenish, pink and white glitters. Buy 2 for $14 and get one free. Better value than MAC's.
What a gorgeous color. Coral with Gold, a very metallic gold almost like foil. But overall a gorgeous color. Would look good with the Flurry of Fun gloss. I am so in love with this color, I almost passed on it because I already have so many coral lipsticks and this was somewhat similar to Ramblin' Rose but different. Ramblin' has frost, but Thrills has gold in it, alot of gold. It's gorgeous. I'm so happy I got it.
First off, I love NARS Cream blushes, I own Penny Lane and Cactus Flower and adore them. I love NARS Cream color pigmentation, packaging, consistency of the product and it wears very well. When I saw Enchanted at Sephora, I knew I had to have it but the reviews have been so negative. I tried it on my face first. Gorgeous light peach color. I like light blushes, Penny Lane is a light color, so for me, this was pigmented enough. However the large flecks of glitter threw me off and I decided not to purchase the product. The glitter flecks are similar to Hungry Heart, another blush I passed on due to the glitter being too chunky. Had NARS made the glitter more refined like Orgasm or Sin, I would have purchased this in a heartbeat.
Powder -Make Up For Ever - Duo Mat Powder foundation

I love this product way better than MAC's Studio Fix and Lancome's Dual Finish. This gives superb coverage, even, silky coverage. No Pancake-face here. Gorgeous. I just love it. Will definitely re-buy.
I hate this color. I'm so sorry I purchased it. It swatched so pretty on my hand but on my lips........not so great. Definitely need a gloss with it. I bought it, so I'm going to wear it. I'm NC 20. The lipstick does not have alot of pigmentation, as the others have mentioned and someone said it looks like a Cream Color Base and they are right about that. I wear mine with Steal My Heart gloss over it, and it makes it more wearable. But as someone mentioned, if you're looking for a neutral color, VG5 is much better, also Hug Me, or Marquise'D.
Did they wash the goat first before making the brush? This brush stinks to high heaven, and I've washed it twice and the smell is still there. Worse when wet. Smells like a wet dog! Yuck! Don't buy this. Put on rose colored glasses and run to your MAC counter and buy any other brush from them instead, and just pretend it's pretty and pink. MAC should really make a few limited edition pink brushes. They made the Red Carmine ones, and the Special Edition Gold handle ones, why not Pink? They should have introduced a pink brush with Barbie, or Hello Kitty. It would fly off the shelves.
Love this color! Pinky/Brown/Plumy color. Nice Sparkle, kind of multi-colored sparkle like Chanel. Very long lasting. I going to go buy a second one. Wish they made more colors in this formula. Cute packaging.
Smells a bit like stronger version of Dove Body Wash Rosewood scent.

I Love this scent! Very very moisturizing. No body lotion needed after showering. My boyfriend LOVES this scent on me! Reminds me of Mary Kay's discontinued "Premonition" fragrance from the 90's. Also smells like Dior Addict (Blue Bottle).
