I have 2! 'nough said.
Gorgeous natural pink. Lasts about 6 hours on my cheeks before i needed to reapply and even then I didn't to reapply awhole lot. I have NC25. It;s more on matte side.
Gorgeous, I am NC 25 with brown eyes and hair. This is so pretty on me. I will pair it with All That Glitters. I will either put ATG on lid and Twinks in crease or ATG in inner corner and Twinks on out 2/3 thirds lid and crease for a sultry look. Gotta love that it is veluxe pearl too.
I like it, Good to my cuticles and better than OPI avoplex oil.

I love and adore this packaging. It is so innovative. One even push and you get the perfect portioned product ready to apply. I would give this packaging a a 10 score if I could. Now for the product itself, another greatness. Itr applys smoothly and feels like silk. It absorbs quick and really feels great on my combo skin. I been using for 3 weeks now at night and I haven't notice any real improvements to my uneven skin tone but I recently incorporated this into my morning routine as well. So we shall see if using 2x daily will help. Also by using this ro replace my Olay moisturizer in the morning, I noticed my Studio Fix Fluid not oxidizing as quickly and as bad as it was with Olay. I will buy again!
I picked this new product up to try out as a new exfoliator from Walgreens and Paid 5.99. Here is my review Smell and Packaging: The smell is great; a refreshing and light clean smell. I like the packaging too although I would like more ounces for what I paid. It is a slender squeeze bottle and I do prefer squeeze over pump for any creams. Formula: The scrub glided on and spread pretty easily. I would say I didn't use more than a dime size amount. There were microbeads but not a lot which to me is a good thing because then it didn't feel too abrasive. Now, I would recommend smooth long strokes as I think too many women use scrubs in a fast and rough manner and then later complain of how it was the product that damaged their skin. Washing the scrub off was interesting because the cream was easily splashed away but the beads found their way down my neck and I one passed my lips and I ended up ingesting it. Eeeggh! But eventually I got them all off my face. Also, as I splashed and glanced in the mirror I noticed the water beading up onmy skin much like how rain does on a freshly waxed car. Overall: I like this scrub, I know I only used it twice but I will say that it made my skin feel fresh and renewed even though there was slightly tight dry feeling on my cheeks. But I think I will only be using this at night like 1 or 2 times a week and at night right before my night cream. Will update if needed!
I agree with the reviewer right below on every word. Very good. a bottle lasts me like 8 months.
Really did not take my waterproof mascara off. It just smeared it across my lid and undereye. Tried many different ways. This product was too hyped. Going back to Neutrogena makeup remover.

Makeup Brushes -MAC - #168 Large Angled Contour Brush

I bought this to contour..obviously. I was happy at first because I was comparing it to the fact that I had nothing at all to help contour. But then I realized that I paid 32 dollars for something that isn't exactly a neccessity as I don't contour everyday. However I hung onto it. I used it some more and it is streaky, at least mine was. And I do know how to blend. I also know how to wash and take care of my brushes, thats why I didn't like it when I found gaps in the bristles. I just wasn't impressed at all with 168. So I returned it and added 10 dollars to buy me a second beloved 187 Also, I found if I hold my small blusher brush just right I can contour nicely.
WHY LE??????? Love this. I was using Painterly for everything but this is great for my skin coloring (NC25). Great base for anything. If you could only buy one pot-get this.
Harsh! and drying and damaging. My hair turned Black with 3n. WTF, it's not even the 'Darker Brown' or' Black' shade color it was just 'Dark Brown.' My hair was healthy and healthy looking before this. Now it is dull lifeless and BLACK!!! Also, my hair was smelling like chemical for 3 days, even thru normal shampooing. NEVER AGAIN!
I got this color for free from MAC because I sent an email raving about some good service I rec'd at their counter. Anyway. When I first tried it, I did it as a wash from lashline to browns. Didn't like it, hated it. Went back to my Ricepaper. Never touched it again. But then I used Ricepaper as a wash and Espresso in crease and did this just on the lower lid area and it is beautiful. =) Also FYI, I used Painterly.
Sing with me -Love Love Love iiiiiiit!!! So nice for a lustre formula. Dark olive green. Kickass!
