Seriously the best drugstore foundation I have ever tried. That illicits a 5 star rating. I used shade #35/tan and this foundation provides me with light to medium coverage with one pump. If I feel I need a bit more coverage I will use 1.5 pumps. This foundation matches my skin perfectly and it feels like nothing on the skin. It stays matte all day without the need for me to apply moisturizer. It claims to be moisturizing but if you have dry skin, your skin may benefit with moisturizer prior to applying foundation. I have combination skin and I have found that my skin is okay without moisturizer. It lasts throughout my long work day without any powdering. I would suggest you try it. It also has a pump!

Great toner that does not dry my skin. It helps to keep my skin clear by quickly drying up any sebum that builds up and causes small pimples. I use this morning and night.

I've been suffering from a lack of sleep and people began commenting on how tired I looked. They mentioned the bags under my eyes. I knew that I needed to add moisture to the skin under my eyes and I was looking for something that would be easily absorbed and wasn't too rich. I think this moisturizer suits my needs and provides the right amount of moisture the skin under my eyes needs. I've been using this for 2 weeks now and so far I like it.
Absolutely marvelous! Best long wearing foundation they have invented yet. The color does not pull an extreme yellow tone, it can hardly be felt on the skin like studio fix fluid can and it lasts all day. I am so impressed! I use shade NC42. Would I buy this foundation again? Most definitely.
Believe it or not but I still have this and this is one of my first MAC eyeshadow purchases. I've hit pan and am using it consistently as an eyebrow highlighter for work.
Definitely get what you pay for. Dried out after one use...I even stored it upside down.
This has turned out to be a great product that seems to remove all of my foundation. It doesn't remove all of my waterproof mascara but that isn't very important to me. I wanted to purchase something that would help in completely removing any foundation residue on my skin. I use this before I take a shower at night. I apply this and massage it onto my face and eye area then jump into the shower to follow up with my face cleanser. I use two pumps and that seems to be just the right amount to use on my face.
The color shows up very similar to satin taupe on my skintone without the sheen. This is a great shadow to use during the daytime and is work appropriate. Today I wore this on my lid with soft brown along my crease.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expertwear Eye Shadow Quad in Mocha Motion

I haven't purchased drugstore eyeshadows in a very long time. CVS had 40% off their Maybelline products and I was just looking to see if anything interested me. This was the only e/s that popped out at me. I am a total neutral girl and rarely wear any color that's not neutral anymore. So of course this quad intrigued me. I really liked the colors. The e/s itself is a bit powdery and it takes a few applications on my tanned skin to get it to the color I want. I really love the brow bone shade and have been using it this past week as my highlighter and lid shade. Great value for me with the 40% off. I'm going to put this in my makeup gym bag to use.
There was a 40% sale at my local CVS on Maybelline products so this was a great opportunity to try this foundation since I've been wanting to try it. I stopped purchasing drugstore foundation years ago because it was difficult finding the right match and it broke me out. There were testers today in certain colors and found that pure beige was the closest match to my skin tone. I went home and put it on. Wasn't the perfect match but was a close match. The finish is really nice and it hasn't broken me out. I would not likely repurchase this again because I'm not completely sold on it yet and I have other foundations I really need to use up. Update: ended up chucking this foundation. It caused pimples on my forehead; an area I haven't had pimples on since I was in my early 20s. Took about a week to clear up and haven't had any pimples since.
This is the only product I was interested in and bought from the Felines collection. I bought it because I knew that I would reach for it more than once and is versatile in it's usage. It can easily be compared to the Naked pigment but I feel that this has a much warmer undertone and is much more suitable for tan girls. I am confident that I will reach for this often as a highlighter and/or wash on my lids. I could even use this to highlight my cheekbones. I would buy this again if I ever ran out and if it was again available. And even though MAC reduced their pigment jars by 2 or 3 grams, I know this will last me a long time even with frequent usage.
I had a very difficult time working with this concealer because it would crease and become caky when I tried to conceal my under eye circles. When I tried concealing any blemishes, it would make a small pimple into a full blown zit. After watching pixiwoo use a MAC 224 brush to apply it, i thought I would try it. Now I am able to make use of this concealer that has been sitting in my drawer for close to a year. It conceals my under eye circles very well and I have been using it consistently for the last month. I dare not try placing it on any place other than my under eyes for fear of my face reacting to the product.
I read that this blush was similar to MAC's blushbaby which is a blush I absolutely adore. I purchased this and it took 3-4 applications to get a decent color on my tanned skin. The pigmentation of this blush is not the usual richly pigmented blush I've experienced from NARS. I was a bit disappointed with the color pay off but the end result after several applications turns out into a natural flush for my skin tone. I give a 3.5 rating for this blush. NC42 for reference.
I am surprised how well this mascara works! I purchased this based on the reviews here during a cherry culture sale. This mascara truly provides length to my eyelashes, does not clump or run. I will definitely purchase this again during another sale.
My favorite MAC foundation thus far. I've tried SFF fluid and powder, select tint, moisture tint, etc. Practically all of them and they've either clogged my skin, felt too heavy or oxidized on me. This suits me perfectly because it is the right amount of coverage I prefer to wear on a daily basis, it has not broken me out at all and it provides a healthy glow.
