This brush is a little pricey but its well worth the money, its soft and feels good on the skin, not scratchy at all like some brushes can be. it blends shadow out perfectly. i like using it to apply my crease color. if you have a cco near you check to see if they have it before you go to mac, i see it at my cco from time to time.
I've been searching for the perfect brown e/s for a long time and this is a good one, I love wearing this in my crease, very pretty shimmery brown. minimal to no fallout depending on the brush. blends well. this is my second favorite brown e/s my first favorite being the brown side of the clinique strawberry fudge e/s duo.
I wasnt sure if i wanted this at first because i thought it might be too glittery, but its not at all, i LOVE this blush i never go wrong with this. its a really pretty soft pink on me (mac nw20). it looks very natural, melts into my skin, doesnt look powdery at all.
this looks really pretty in the tube, sure fooled me. this just looks like pink glitter and its very drying. this was my first glaze formula and will definately be my last as well.
its a very pretty sparkly purple in the tube, but it goes on pretty much clear with some sparkle. i found it to be less sticky then most mac lip glass which is a plus but this is nothing special. its great if you wana use it as a clear gloss cuz it does look really cute but personally im not into clear gloss so i will be swapping this.
this is a really pigmented concealer it has really good coverage and its best for oily or normal skin, it can be drying if your skin is already dry. it will get cakey if you use too much. it will settle into lines but this is still my fav concealer, i use it everyday just not under my eyes because its too heavy but its perfect to cover the dark area i have on the inside of my eyes and the viens on my eyelid. not perfect for everything but if you can find a use for it youll probly love it.
Crème -MAC - Select SPF 15 Moistureblend [DISCONTINUED]

i have dry skin and it didnt dry out my skin or make me flakey. i only use this in the winter, in the summer time its very hot and humid so i usually just wear powder on my nose because i get oily in the heat. this is good for dry skin, if you have oily skin you dont need this. not the best foundation, but out of all the MAC foundations its one of their better ones i think. over all i dont like MAC foundations at all and i wont be buying anymore foundation from them.
ok so... you have to be careful with this, because if you use too much you will look cakey!! this also settles into fine lines and makes them stand out. this formula is heavily powder based so if you have dry skin i wouldnt recomend this. i hardly ever reach for this but i do use it from time to time so it doesnt go to waste and i've found if you use a small amount and avoid fine lines you can make it work, but why bother, just get something else.
i LOVE this paint pot, i use this to line my bottem lashes and it really makes my green eyes pop. its a really pretty gold color from the fafi collection.
this is one of the best drug store mascara's ive used. it does flake a little after a while but that is easy to avoid by adding a coat of clear mascara after its dried. it separates adds volume and length, and holds a curl pretty good. people ask me if im wearing fake lashes all the time when im wearing this! some people say that this clumps, but.... any mascara will clump if you take too long putting it on, get on a few coats BEFORE it starts to dry and it wont clump!
i was at ulta looking for a new mascara to try, so i asked the sales lady to recomend a good mascara for lengh and volume and this is what she gave me... so i bought it. big mistake, total waste of money. this mascara is garbage. it flakes like crazy, the brush is way to big, it dries out fast. its just plain crappy and i regret buying it.
I LOVE these brushes, they are very soft and i use them everyday. The blush brush is way better than my mac blush brush, they looked exactly the same when i got them, but the mac one did not retain its shape and it sheds a lot, where the essance of beauty retained its shape after washing and it doesnt shed. the touch up is perfect for getting around my nose and eyes with powder. these brushes are great and i would recomend them to anyone. they are comparable to any high end brand.

This is probly one of the best drug store foundations ive tried, it covers really well, it blends easily, and it doesnt brake out my skin, i also use this on my sister, she has trouble keeping her skin clear and this does not irritate her skin either, and it covers her brake outs very well. this evens out skin better than most foundations ive used. a lot of times i prefer this over my MAC liquid and powder foundations because it looks more natural. so far this is the only drug store foundation that didnt clog my pores. great product. i highly recomend this to everyone.
3D Glass has been the least sticky out of all the MAC glosses I've used, and I've tried them all. Its not exactly 3D but Im very surprised at how not sticky they are considering it is from MAC. So if you feel like MAC glosses are too sticky give these a try.
