I love the color payoff, it lasts forever. Im NW20 and its very flattering on me. I just have a hard time applying it evenly. I use a lipliner then put it on but maybe the formula is a little tricky? I just purchased about a week ago so ill keep working with it. but gorgeous red for fair skinned for sure
Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
Makeupismyaddiction 3/12/2012 12:06:00 PM
This powder is amazing! I dont like adding more coverage after applying foundation I just like to set.. this sets perfectly giving a soft focus effect imo. The container is a bit messy I don't carry this around with me but I dont find I need it after intial application. Would buy again but this literally lasts me forever!
This is a really great drugstore mascara.. tbh some of the department store mascaras i have tried are comparable. and a fraction of the cost. It lengthens and thickens.. only downside is it can clump up. Just brush with a lash comb and the problem is solved. :)
Im NW20 and I usually stick to nudes or darker colors. I loved the color in the tube but it is very bright. I tried it on at MAC and I knew I had to have it! Its the perfect bright lip for fair skinned ladies like me. It can be drying as another reviewer had commented. It is very long lasting!! edit: now that im using my self tanner it looks so fake.. i hate it. this is gonna be for when im pale.
Toners -Merle Norman - Luxiva Aha Toner Normal/Oily

Love!!! I have normal to oily skin and this was recommended to me. My skin hasnt been oily as much and I have only been using it everyday for two weeks. I use the skin refining cleanser, this toner and a drugstore moisturizer and this is a must in my skin care routine! A little pricy but worth it.
I heard some things about this concealer on one of my favorite blogs. I gotta say for the price, I wasn't expecting too much. This is hands down my favorite concealer. I am NW35 and I got it in shade tan. Its very thick so a little goes a long way and it takes a minute to blend everything but it covers my dark circles so well. My undereye area looks brighter. I would for sure repurchase!
I give this a 4.5. I love this foundation. I have been using double wear and it is very comparable. It lasts all day but it wasnt drying like el dw. It didnt completely cover some acne scars but thats what concealer is for. Im beyond impressed. I love riding motorcycles where i have a full face helmet on. When i got off i asked my boyfriend what was messed up (usually my makeup is wack lol) and he said nothing it looks the same. Never liked MAC foundation until now. UPDATE: Used for a week now, It is buildable so I am able to cover everything and lasts all day. My skin looks much better using this foundation too. Going to change it to 5 rating.
I paid about $16 for this product. I really didn't expect it to be that much, seemed kinda outrageous for a brow powder. Before I was using a MAC brow pencil with MAC brow set. The pencil looked so fake. I wanted to try a brow powder so this is my first to try. Worked amazing! Stays on all day. I set it with my MAC brow set the first few days but I didn't today and it still looked great. Hopefully it will last a long time as well.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Deep Action Cream Cleanser

Love the smell, price and how refreshing it was. But with any beauty products, I thrive on multi-taskers. My last cleanser was Clearisil(spelling?) Cream Cleanser and it removed my makeup while keeping my face smooth and clear. I'll try something else.
If i could I would give a 3.5, its an okay foundation. The coverage is great, and the color choices are amazing of course. It is kinda tricky to apply though. It didnt last as long as I wanted it to. I have combo-oily skin lately and I set it with my Estee Lauder Double Matte powder and I still had some oily spots, which I never have with my EL DW foundation.. so needless to say it wont be replacing my current foundation. But for women with dry skin or normal skin, I think it would work great.. especially for going out just a few hours. UPDATE: Instead of applying with a sponge, i used my fingers.. looked a lot better. Alone it didnt work as great, but i mixed it with my EL DW and it gave me a dewy look yet i still had full coverage. I used this foundation as a concealer and it covered great.
Although it does brighten up my under eyes, I usually dont use this as a under eye concealer, I prefer the Studio Finish. But for covering up acne scars or pimples, it is amazing. I figured it wouldn't work this great since it is pretty sheer. I dap a little bit on my finger and blend a little and It stays on all day. Im so glad I found this problem, I never had problems with breakouts until recently and with this product I can fool people into thinking my skin is flawless! :)
I love this lipstick! Im NC37 in MAC and its beautiful. Its a few shades darker than my natural lip color. I usually stick to nudes or peaches, but I am glad I tried this out. Its perfect for a night on the town or anytime I wanna vamp up my daytime look.
Although the color is beautiful, its not a favorite of mine. As someone mentioned before, this wouldnt suit warm toned girls and while it doesnt look bad, its not a fav. Though the consistency is amazing. For reference im NC37 in MAC.
I love this lipstick, its a gorgeous pinky nude. It doesnt last that long but its moisturizes my lips. I have never been able to wear lipsticks simply because they settle into lines or dry my lips out. All NYX lipsticks ive tried are creamy and great!
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Comfort

My favorite MSF to try so far! Its amazing. I returned Gold deposit because it was too shimmery and Comfort was recommended for me, Im NC37 and this looks amazing. It does give a beautiful sunkissed glow. I will repurchase!!
