Ahh water in a can. I love this stuff. I always keep a bottle in my purse, in my room, and a big one in my ice box. I like being being able to spray water on my face when I need a little pick me up, or if i'm a bit dry. I like being able to use this year around, and I will continue to buy forever. This also works as a great night-time moisturizer. Just spray a lot on your face before bed and let it sink in over night.
I really like this scrub! I saw it at Walgreens and bought it on a whim because I had forgotten my cleanser while on vacation. The Green Tea scrub smells so lovely. Its like an herbal mens cologne. (I have to say I bought it for the smell) :) It also doesn't smell like a strong acne medicine. Its a very gentle exfoliator, and is not at all rough like the Apricot Scrub. This has 1% Salicylic acid in it, so its not going to treat acne blemishes, like a Acne Cleanser would, but can help in the treatment process. (1% is no miracle) My skin is pretty clear, I don't have a problem with breakouts (knock on wood) so this is a good ideal exfoliator for me to use. The green tea scrub is also oil free, which is a big plus. This is probably going to become a staple exfoliator for me. I will repurchase :)
Thank you sephora for giving me a nice mascara for my birthday! This mascara is perfect for an understated lash effect. It gives volume and length, without being too in your face. The brush is nice, it's easy for me to get to all my lashes. Overall, this is a great mascara for me. Will repurchase :)

I've been wanting this for quite some time. I finally bought it, and I really, really am impressed. The color on me is a deep pink. Not too vibrant, but natural enough to wear out. Its quite moisturizing and has an SPF of 10, which is a bonus. The color lasts a long time on me, but the only gripe is that it can be a little drying if you don't reapply. Overall I do like it, and it will last me a long time. I will repurchase.
I love this color. Its a hot red with an orange undertone. It goes on nice and opaque. The only reason I took off a lippy is because it stains the nail even with a base coat. Lovely color for all year around, will repurchase.
Splendid is a light pinky color color. Its not too intense, and can be pulled off as a nude with a bit of a punch. The gloss is smooth, and the color is buildable. Love how MACs glosses smell. Love the packaging, so cute! 4.5/5
Mulch was one of the first colors I ever bought from mac. Mulch is a pigmented warm brown, with a golden plummy undertone. Mulch is a perfect color for warm toned skin, and can be used all over the eye. I personally use Mulch in the crease, or as an all over color for going out. I love this shadow and will continue to repurchase.
I dont know why this product has gotten so many negative reviews! I love this liner. Its creamy, easy to apply and is possibly the darkest black. I dont have a problem with it smudging, yes it can run a bit if you don't seal it w/ black eyeshadow. Overall this liner beats out MUFE and Urban Decay for me. I will repurchase.
After fumbling with the package forever, I was finally able to try this bronzer. I am a bronzer noob. I don't usually wear it, but I had gotten this as a sample and tried it out. The color is more of a orangy glowy shimmer, as oppose to a "bronzer". This looked like orange glow and dirt on my face (NW20). The shimmer is a bit much for me too, but is usable as a body bronzer. I gave this a 3, because its not useless, but I think it could be much better. I will either try to use this or give it to someone darker than me. EDIT- I have given up all hope. This is going to the trash. I do NOT want to look like an orange glittery Snookie.
I bought this product while I was at Sephora. I had heard many great things about the Phyto line and wanted to try it. I picked up a sampler trio with this in it. I am in love. Phytojoba smells like coconut and some kind of herbal infusion. It lathers very nicely, and I don't feel like its stripping my hair. I use a palm sized amount, and that covers my long coarse hair. I use this product along with the Phytojoba mask, and Phyto 7. I really like the results I get from the products. I will continue to buy.
I bought a set of Phyto products made for dry hair, and Phyto 7 was in it. After my hair has had some time to air dry, I apply this and brush it through. This really has helped my dry, split ends, and my hair has stayed soft and fluffy (Like I just came out of the hair salon). I'm really glad I found this because my hair is so thick and coarse, and I can never find anything that helps. I will be buying this product again.
I love this blue. I never thought blue would be a flattering color, but I just love how this looks on my hands (makes 'em look longer ). Its a medium Caribbean blue. It looks lovely on slightly yellow/olive skin tones. The finish is a creme, and is quite nice after two coats. I really like this, and will buy the full size when I run out of the mini.
I love this. This makes my life so much easier when it comes to brush cleaning. Yes, it's expensive, but you can back-to-mac it. No, it has no spray top. Buy one at Target or the dollar store. No hassle, no mess, no icky smell. LOVE.
Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Eye Definer Felt-Tip Eye Marker

I've been on a bit of a liquid/gel/marker liner kick this past week or so. I saw this at my Target for like 75% off, so I had to get it. This is quite a nifty little thing once you get the hang of it, and get a feel for how it works. At first I didn't like the application. The trick is to rub the tip back and fourth before application. The color payoff is OK. Not super duper, but with a few re-applications its nice. Overall this is not the greatest product I have ever used and I would not buy it again because there are better things out there. But, for what it is, it gets the job done, and I will use it until I finish it.
I agree with the review below me that this is a "neutral with a bit of ooomph" I like this as a paint on and go color. One coat is sheer but classy, two coats is really gorgeous, but somehow a different color. Congo Bongo is a interesting polish. It's not a frost or a metallic, it's like a sheen. This is a gorgeous color and I will be using it for a long time.
