I think that everyone should own this product. Its a lovely shimmery brown (with no glitter specks). It's super blendable and absolutely lovely to use as an all-over shadow or just slightly on the outer V to make your eyes pop. This is one of MAC's staple & I can definitely see why.
LOVELY taupe-ish color. This is a Frost but it runs velvetty on me. I love this eyeshadow to use on the crease or the outer V. It blends very easily due to its super soft quality and stays put all day. I don't even need to use my TFSI underneath this. This beats the other taupe colors I have from MAC (satin taupe, shale). I wish this wasn't LE, because I'd most def. buy over & over again. Unfortuate that I have buy several more and stock up. =/ but totally worth the buy & experience. On my asian-toned skin, this even gives off a navy blue sheen which is so unique and pretty.
The MSF that I was always searching for. This is really PERFECT. It beat Refined, Porcelain Pink, Soft & Gentle, and Perfect Topping all together. This seems to show up more than the other MSFs that I've tried, and seems to go fairly well with any blush that I have on. I have used it on top of MAC Dainy & even NARS super orgasm (these are 2 completely diff. colors) & this MSF pairs perfectly. I also use it as an all-over highlighter and it gives me this super pretty, girly glow. But it doesn't look cakey or muddy (which I have experienced from Refined/Perfect Topping). Anyway this is LE, so hurry & get yourself one. You won't be disappointed! You can opt for a natural, peachy look or for a sexy bronzed look with this MSF.. but it all comes down to how you use it and what you pair it with.

This seems to be product that people either hate or love. As for me, this is PURE love. I have always shyed away from powders or creams because they tend to smear/erase & I never seem to achieve that perfect "arched" look. I have used Maybelline's brow pencil for years (Charcoal gray- which is discontinued now). And still, I was unsatisfied. I have very sparse eyebrows. It's impossible to leave the house w/o having them filled. So, eventually I got my eyebrows SEMI-tattooed. which is getting them inked but eventually, it begins fading/diminishing. (I'm afraid to get full on permanent tattoos on my face). I'm happy with this "semi-tattoo" because it looks oh so natural. But then again, it eventually fades... (I've gotten it re-touched twice in 2 years already). Anyway, I've decided to go eyebrow pencil hunting to avoid getting the touchups for 100$ everytime. I stopped by Benefit @ my local Macy's and I liked the fact that this said "Instant brow pencil". I mean, who likes spending hours on their eyebrows like me? I got this in "light to medium".. & the formula is creamy so it applies very easily. I use a light hand so they don't look drawn on. they look super natural & happily, this beats any of the eyebrow pencils/formulas that I have ever used. It literally stays put ALL day. the pigmentation is perfect, not too light nor heavy. The only con is the damn PRICE$$. $20 for eyebrow pencil and this thing goes down REALLY fast. It's so worth it though.
I am a huge fan of MAC products but this is my first Lipgelee purchase. Like the other reviewers have indicated, most Lipgelees are very sheer with little to no pigmentation. For years I have stuck with lipglasses. Unlike the lipglasses, these are NOT sticky! I LOVE this specific color. It is a glittery nude beige that would look glamorous over any nude lipstick. This one is pretty pigmented and it feels so buttery & soft on my lips. Overall, I would purchase again. A must have for nude lip fanatics like me.
I LOVE this lipstick! It is a bubblegum-barbie pink with a tint of neon to it. VERY sexy & wearable. Would look best with black eyeliner+black mascara and NO eyeshadow. Especially for those with fair complexions, this will make you look incredibly sexy. I personally like this better than Saint Germain.. it gives me an edge

I love this lipgloss... I am a NUDE lip whore, so I am quite picky when choosing beige-ish lipsticks or lipglosses. This one is very shimmery and gives your lip a juicy look. It is velvetty smooth, though you can sometimes feel the micronized glitters. I'm 18, and I don't find this appealing for the younger crowd...because this can really give you those pornstar lips.

One of my favorite nude lippies. I was surprised to find this better than some of my MAC nudes. Fortunately, a lady at a boutique shop was so nice enough to give this to me for a DOLLAR..So I can't really comment on the price, besides the fact that it was dirt cheap. Anyway, the only con to this lipstick is the way it might slightly crust like most nudes. I find it annoying =( Other than that, this is VERY creamy..highly pigmented and gives you that perfect light peachy nude.
I wish I can give 0 lippies to this one. Ladies, beware: This is NOT a dazzleglass... it MAY be categorized as a dazzleglass and look like one in the tube but the shimmer/glitter payoff is beyond horrible. This comes off way too sheer for my liking and I know most dazzleglasses are sheer but this one has NO color for my medium pigmented lips. On the other hand, there is no SHIMMER. $20 for a clear gloss? Hell no. Returned it the next day. I prefer Via venetto
Unbasic white truly is unbasic. The starflash texture is incredibly smooth and ultra silky. This is great to use as a highlighter under the brows. It also looks amazing to use on the inner corner of my eyes- truly makes them wide alert and beautiful. I just wish it had a slight sheen of color to it-- either light pink or goldish like the vanilla pigment but that's just my personal preference. You can't go wrong with this purchase. Everyone needs a little bit of white in their makeup stash
I am really confused about all the rave reviews. I am a fair skinned asian with slight yellow undertones and this pigment just does not work for me.. It looks too frosty as an highlighter or eyeshadow and I had no choice but to return it. Though this product does looks quite lovely when I swatch it on my hand, it makes my face look overly frosty or shiny--even when I use it subtly. Too bad for me this product didn't reach its expectation.
