This is a great lipstick for me to have around. I don't have pigmented lips, so darker shades have always suited me more. WHen I don't wear lipstick I look washed out. Anyway, this is one of those colors that really doesnt go out of style. Great for fall. On me its a darker plummy brown, but not so dark that it looks '90's. no shimmer, no frost. nc42
I'm not going to lie, I hoard eyeshadows and then hardly ever use them. That's why, when I saw this palette, I was immediately attracted. OOh another blue, another black, another teal, just what I already have 20 of... I NEED IT! Anyway, seriously..this palette is awesome both for color payoff and selection. I kind of wish I had never bought my Heatherette 3 color palette with cloudburst and moodring (although those are beautiful) this palette gives me a similar eye option and MORE. I absolutely love the silver in this, no blue tones and so flattering. Anyway, my point is that even for a makeup addict like myselff, this is a useful palette. Instead of toting around random e/s pots, I can take this on vacation, like I did last week to Miami. Love it. Nc42.
I love this shade! I think dazzleglasses are a tad overpriced, but this color is definitely unique and made it home with me. I layered it on top of verve lipstick, but I'm sure it would look fabulous on top of any of my rosy brown shades. nc42.

I got suckered into buying this product with no clue if it would really work for me. The SA kept applying gobs of it before my foundation (which is why I had come to the Px counter in the first place...foundation) Anyway, turns out this didn't do much for my skin. It didn't irritate it (I have highly sensitive eczema prone skin with patches of eczema on my face as well) I don't feel like this was an effective product. I used to quite a few days before giving up. There were no visible adverse affects, but then again my skin looked the same. Not a rebuy for me. Pricey as well.
I'm pretty much in love with this liner. All summer long, I've been wearing a fuschia lip when I go out at night, and this liner has been the base for many fun lip looks. Works wonderful on its own, just line and fill. Or, try it underneath Up the Amp, Girl about town, or VS Beg me lippies. Looks amazing. Love. nc42 here and I recommend this to all ladies who love a bold lip.
This is probably my favorite paint pot thus far. I usually use Soft Ochre, but honestly it bores me. This gives me that soft gold lid that makes a great base for warm looks. Can be worn alone or topped off with Bronze, ricepaper, and embark e/s, or many many other combinations.
Overall this is a great foundation for my dry skin. Nc42 is a great match in this formula for me, even better match than any other product in their foundation line. Unlike other MAC foundations, I don't ahve much to complain about with this one, it gives me a smooth dewy finish which I love, although I do kind of wish there was more product and a wee bit more coverage. Would not recommend for oily skin.
This is a clean, fresh hot pink on my nc42 skin. Makes for a great bold lip! I have been on a pink lipstick kick, and this one definitely ranks high on my list of favorites. Works great with magenta liner, as others have said. If you like this shade, you might also like Victoria's secret line Very sexy(d/c) lipstick in Beg me which is another eye popping fuschia (even more so than this one!)
What a fun shade. I'm so glad that I picked this up before it sold out at my counter! On me this doesn't appear as green as it does in the pot, but it's a great yellow-y green and I love the texture and color payoff as well as the blendability of this line of shadows. Highly recommend this to aanyone willing to use fun,bright shades. Looks great on tan skin. Nc42 here.
I definitely loved the texture and color of this shadow in the pot. When I applied it last night (on top of my paint pot base of soft ochre) it didn't show up as true to pot color as I had hoped, but the texture was certainly lovely, and it was super blendable. I don't have any other purple like this in my collection, and it definitely looks awesome when I line with Rave pearlglide. Love the combo, I made a purple smokey eye with this shade last night.

I had to use this product in a pinch, my black eyeliner went missing and I tried my new (sale purchase). It goes on smoothly with my lining brush, but not exactly the blackest black. I layered my pencil liner on top of this so it lasted the whole night. For the price it works excellent. I think the olive side would mak a good base for shadow as well.
This is an awesome lipgloss to add on top of any of my new found favorite pink/magenta lipsticks! It just adds that extra oomph to give your bold lip some depth. I don't mind the glitter because I would probably only wear a fuschia lip at night anyway, so the glitter would look great. Recommend this for those that would prefer a more pigmented dglass. The color is still sheer-ish but it definitely shows up. nc42 here.
Beautiful shade of purple! I love the finish, the depth of the color, and the smoothness of application. MY only problem was with how quickly this pencil needs sharpening. I can see myself using this up quickly, which is not good. Tired of buying backups for products by mac, but this is truly a beauitful liner and it does last on me. nc42 here and i would recommend this to everyone!
I think that because I am loving pink lippies a lot more these days, I naturally gravitated towards Up the Amp, a color I have been avoiding for a LONG time. WHen I tried it on the other day, I thought it looked fabulous. I paired it with fantabulous dazzleglass. Definitely not a look for the shy, or for everyday, but a fun lippie indeed. I can see myself wearing this on nights out or with the right outfit. Love it on my nc42 skin, pretty flattering, even with the cooler tone/hints of purple
my MA used this on me during my wedding events, on the day that I wanted a more natural look, she applied this wet on top of a base as just a wash. I think it looked fabulous with just some mascara and liner. It really brightened my eyes and made them pop. There is a lot of fall out, but I have been unable to find a color with a comparable finish.
