I actually didn't buy this, just tried it on in the store. I almost bought it site unseen on the MAC website based on the great reviews on MUA, which usually never steers me wrong. I am so glad I tried it in store first, because it really was very blah. It looks blah in the pan and it is blah on my skin. I can only see this appealing to someone who really is a minimalist when it comes to makeup. Or possibly it does more for someone with a different skintone. Mine for reference is NC20. Anyway, the color is basically light brown and disappeared into my skin after about 20 minutes. If I want the "I'm not wearing any blush" look, I'll just not wear blush. Texture is good, though, as with all Blushcremes, in my opinion.
This is a great color and really not as fuchia or as scary as it looks. It IS very sweet looking on the cheeks. I love it.
This is a really great color, and an essential one to have, I believe. It's sort of a peachy pink, to me. It's not too intense but adds a great pop of color and the color really lasts pretty much all day. I have Brit Wit and Posey, and I love those, too. This is a great addition to my Blushcremes.

I was looking for a purple eyeliner that was dark purple but did not look black or brown This is a great color, very dark without looking black. The wear is pretty good too. I liked it.
I have been really getting into purple eyeshadows and liners lately. I love the quality of this eyeliner. It's very creamy and smooth but it definitely stays puts, which is great. The color is dark purple. It sometimes looks navy on. Overall, a great find for me!
I really love this color. It is so different but still keeps with the dark trends for Fall and Winter. A very classy blue and I wouldn't have thought that possible. Also, my husband loves the on me. I knocked off a lippie however because of the strange staining it left after I removed it from my nails, despite the fact that I always use a good basecoat. I don't know if the stain is more visible because of the blue hue or what. Weird staining, but a gorgeous, unique color.

I love trying out lip scrubs so this caught my eye on the Sephora website, however I have been disappointed in it. There aren't enough granules to make a difference. It's mostly a jar of peppermint-y cream mixed with a a few granules here and there. I'm not sure if the cream is beneficial but who cares when you are supposed to rinse it off anyway.
I love this! Worn on the cheeks, it delivers a healthy flush. I also love it on the lips. Staying power is good.

This is a pretty light red stain with warm undertones. I like the color because it is not too dark. Most stains are berry colored but this one is a yellow red which is unusual. I would recommend this for girls with warm/yellow undertones.
This is a gorgeous color and the listick feels wonderful on. I would give 5 lippies but the staying power is not good.
Really gorgeous purplely, greyish, taupe. This should be a staple in everyone's makeup case.
This is a gorgeous purple eyeshadow; a very true purple, not violet. I have used this in the crease with Shale and Trax on the lid, and it looks wonderful. I hope they make this permanent.
Yikes! I had to add my two cents about this product. Most of the reviews I read were positive so I ordered it from Sephora and was excited to receive it in the mail. The very first time I tried it it broke off. Then the two sides slid away from each other and it was not fixable. Even if this had not happened the machanics of this product don't work in my opinion. The exfoliating side being a solid does not exfoliate very well. The balm is nothing special. I would agree with some other reviewers that this is a gimmick. Also, what's up with the packaging and mirror? It seems very elaborate for lip balm. Do you need a mirror to put on lip balm? I honestly have nothing good to say about this product.
I love MAC Slimshines. They feel incredible on. Urgent is a soft cherry red that brightens my face. I love the sheerness and shine of this. Of course Slimshines aren't long-lasting with this kind of texture but they are still great and a must have, in my opinion.
This is an orange-red cream. It is a bright and fun color for the summer. Recommended., especially for warm skin tones.
