Gorgeous! I use this with a damp brush and it provides a beautiful shade of dark green. The pigment is amazing and even though I am very fair (NC/NW 15) I can wear it as a smokey eye. Just brilliant. Oh and as for the little applicator, just get rid of it.
I had some trepidation about buying this foundation, but I love the way my skin looks when I use it. I generally use it when I want a little more coverage, as it is not "sheer" despite its name. The key to make this one work is by following its instructions - use your fingers and press it in. I can understand some reviews regarding flakiness, but I find when I moisturize my skin well, it looks amazing!

I can't believe I forgot about this lovely cleanser. I love the way my skin feels following its use. The scent is an added bonus. If you want a cleanser that foams, this is not for you. However, if you want a cleanser that cleans well without the tightness, then pick this one up! Love it
Thanks to MUA I discovered this little gem of a foundation. The only thing that bothers me is the fragrance. Other than that, it is fantastic. The finish is natural with a little sheen and the coverage is medium. I have blemishes and some uneven areas and this does the trick. I use my fingers as I find it gives the most natural look.
I have read some of the reviews and I am a little surprised. I used the Bionic and absolutely hated it. So I had some trepidation using this one. This is 10x better. I love the colour, the length and separation it gives my lashes. I never have smudges and there are zero flakes! While the brush is different, it isn't as big as Dior Show or Bad gal. You just have to twist it out of the package, remove any excess off the ends onto the lip of the tube and then wiggle and twist on the lashes, all things you should do with any mascara.
I bought this with Crest the Wave and it is such a pretty orange. I have the Orange (matte) with is nice, but this is a tad more subtle and easier to blend. I put Crest the Wave all over the lid and then I concentrate this to the middle and up towards the crease. Really pretty look for those of us hazel brown/green eyes. Really makes them pop!
This is such a pretty colour to wear on its own or over top of any colour. I was so excited because I thought it was going to be exactly like a previous LE Truth and Light. It's not......very sad indeed they didn't make it core :( Anyway, Young Thing is similar to Florabundance but with some shimmer. Less peachy/pink than Truth and Light, but has a little more colour than Florabundance. Very pretty indeed.
This is a really pretty yellow. It is a frost but it isn't ridiculously shimmery. Of course it isn't like their Chrome, but it isn't pale like their LE pollen. I guess I would call it a bright Lemon yellow. It is bright enough to stand out and put it with Off the Page LE, it looks like fire on the eyes (really pretty look). It is easy to work with, as it isn't granule like some other MAC eye shadows. Too bad it is a Limited Edition.
I love this colour on, however, to get it to the point of love, I have to work very hard. It's not easy to blend and as most have said, it is chalky. Maybe if it was a Matte2 or Satin, but as is... to hard to get it where I want it. Will not repurchase it.
This was bought without even trying it. So pretty and this is a colour I have been searching for. Too bad it is a LE.... I might have to buy more just in case. The starflash formula is beautiful and so easy to use. Just brilliant
I had such high hopes for this pretty-in-the -pan colour. As mentioned before it's frosty and very light. I am fair and I still have to pile it on in order for there to be a decent amount of colour.
Ewwww... not a big fan. I don't know what it is about MAC's pinks, but I cannot wear them. They look grey on me or make me look sickly. This was way too frosty. I am sure on the right skin tone it would be beautiful, but not on my NC/NW 20 skin.
It's a nice champagne colour. However, it is way too shimmery for me. I have used starflash line before, but I find this too much. It's silky and has a beautiful feel, but it falls. Will not buy it again.
Pretty dark, gunmetal with a hint of dark blue. Nice alternative for a smokey eye. It goes on well and blends nicely. I find I am not reaching for it a lot and since I am fair, I can't wear it all the time, just at night. However, it is still a unique colour.
So pretty, oh so pretty. You can wear it with anything! In the crease, as a liner, an all over wash.. you name it. Wonderful with nudes and with purples. Love it for a smokey eye. One of the best shadows MAC has. Easy to work with and blend. Well done!
