This is fantastic. This is a beautiful light chocolate/taupe with a beautiful pearly/silvered shimmer. I find this could almost be considered metallic in finish. This is beautiful, but not intense at all, even if the application is smooth and well-pigmented. I don't find this sheer, but it is subtle.
I got this from Back2MAC so, overall, I'm pleased with it. I do have a tendency to go for coral/peach lipcolors and was trying to avoid doing the same thing this time. What I was looking for was something that would add a little color to my lips, but would look more natural than my usual lippies. I tried a TON of lipsticks on before coming back to this one. I assumed it would be too much like my beloved Dainty Cake, Cockatease, Monarch or La Mode. Luckily, while this is definitely peachy, it goes on much more subtly. The texture is a bit dry, but applying a little gloss overtop fixes that nicely. I'm glad I didn't spend any cash on this because I don't adore it, but I will reach for it and it serves its purpose.
Moonstone is a nice, versatile light rose pearl with peach undertones. Very simple and complimentary to all sorts of looks. That said, this has to be the most generic looking color MAC has come out with. Every cosmetics line has a gloss that looks almost identical to this one. Nothing special. Also quite sheer, so sometimes it looks like I'm barely wearing anything (and I'm pale!). It's okay, but nothing to write home about.
I bought this to replace my staple Untitled paint as a creaseless eyeshadow base. I love shimmery shadows and I figured the pearl in this paint would help emphasize my other shadows' natural frostiness. From the reviews I'd read I expected this to be ridiculously pigmented and glaringly shiny, but I was a bit disappointed to find that this applies quite sheerly. That said, it does serve its purpose as a creaseless eyeshadow base that doesn't mix or alter the colors applied over it. I feel like I may as well have stuck with Untitled, but there's no harm in it either. It didn't really make much of a difference.
This is probably MAC's best browbone highlighting eyeshadow. It offers a very bright light golden/white sheen. Simple and straightforward.
My adoration of this eyeshadow is especially strong considering my seething hatred for the texture of luster eyeshadows. I have an addiction to pretty turquoise/teal eyeshadows (Meadowland, Brill, Oceanique, Parrot, etc.) and I had stayed away from this one because I thought it would be too similar to something I've already got only with the dreaded luster texture. I'm glad I gave it a chance! The pigment on this is incredible. It goes on smoothly and the gritty glitter is at a minimum. This is also much brighter and prettier than many others. I adore using it with Brill or Oceanique. Fantastic!
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

This is a great product. I'd been resisting fluidlines for a long time, mainly because I didn't want to invest in a brush as well. I'd been sticking my my faithful Teddy eye kohl for years. But I finally jumped on the bandwagon and it is worth it! Every girl needs a black eyeliner for her nights on the town and this one is the best she can hope for. It stays put and is a simple matte black. I don't find this too subtle or natural, like other seem to, because it is black and does have the pristine appearance of liquid eyeliner which, in my opinion, never looks subtle. But I think it is great and campy and lovely!
I'd say this is the most versatile color in the fluidline range. It is a rich, shimmery copper-brown with both red and gold undertones. It is quite soft but can be painted on as a thick line to make it dramatic. Very nice. I find this goes with everything and can be quite subtle, when needed. I love it and use it more than any of my others!
I had skipped over this one numerous times simply because it looked too intensely orange/brown/copper in the tube. I had to do an exchange and my counter was out of stock in what I really wanted so I asked to try this one since it has gathered such a following. Man, am I glad I did! This is a great shade. It comes out of the tube much more sheerly, but with intense sparkle. Definitely not as opaque and garish as I thought it would be. Not subtle, but still versatile. I can wear this without lipstick underneath and I love that!
This is a great product and is an Asian exclusive. I was lucky to get my hands on this as I prefer Luster finish lipsticks over all others because they're so moisturizing. This is a great watermelon pink lipstick with just a bit of Coral to it. Very sheer and bright, which is really nice. One of the only pinks I can pull off.
I love it! It works well as an excellent base for cool-toned shadows. On it's own it is nice, but a little hard to work with at first. A lot smoother than my previous shadestick (Lucky Jade), but still a bit difficult. This looks awesome as a base for Oceanique eyeshadow.
I really like this fluidline and this is my first! I tried the Blacktrack color, but I found it quite harsh and dramatic. This is a nice alternative that is just a bit softer and more versatile. This is lovely and goes well with a surprising variety of different eyecolors. I wish it had a bit of shimmer, but I like it quite a bit. I'm definitely a convert now!
I like this, but don't love it. I find it a more pigmented version of Paradisco, albeit a bit more orange and less pink. I've been searching for a nice, non-garish orange shadow and this is it! That said, it is a lustre, which I truely despise with all my heart. Ah well.
I like this lipglass quite a bit, but I was hoping for it to be a substitute for my beloved (and discontinued) Tartlette lipglass. This is a very nice light and bright peachy coral lipglass. It has fine sparkles and nice shimmer. The downside to this is that it is quite sheer and seems more like a lusterglass than a lipglass. It brightens but could be considered too sheer on its own. I like it, but it is no Tarlette. Too bad.
I'm surprised to hear people describe this as a pink-peach. I find this a very light golden nude with very fine sparkle and shimmer. I don't find any pink/peach/rose in this at all, though. This enhances any lipcolor with warm shimmer and I could see this working on just about any skin tone. I imagine that this might be a little too subtle for some, but I love it.
