When I saw people raving about this blush online, I wasn't sure if it would suit my skintone. It turns out that it looks very natural and is extremely long-wearing. I am a wildland firefighter and happened to have been wearing this blush when I unexpectedly got called to a fire. After the smoke cleared, this blush remained on my cheeks. I will definitely be repurchasing this blush as it is now a HG product for me!

When I first tried this, I really liked it. It made my hair nice and fluffy and it was invisible. Things went downhill fast! I don't know what the situation is with the packaging but when I shake it, I can feel and hear product swishing around in there but it doesn't seem like there's much coming out. There's a cold burst of air and a little bit of powder but it does nothing for my hair. I don't think the shampoo is being properly dispensed anymore. I think I got 4-5 uses out of this. Also, I absolutely hate the smell! It seems to stay with me for a few hours too. It smells like cheap old lady perfume and chemicals. Not good. So, needless to say, I won't be repurchasing this.
I was so skeptical about this eyeshadow. Usually when a lot of people love something, it raises my expectations and I end up a little disappointed. However, when I swatched this shadow at Sephora, I instantly fell in love! i have not seen an eyeshadow like this before. I'm fair skinned so the colour is very close to my skin tone. It's great for the days when I don't want to put on a full face of makeup. When I just want one eyeshadow on, this is the one that I go for 90% of the time. There is a bit of fall-out but not enough to annoy me (like certain UD eyeshadows). I would definitely purchase this again!
Be still my heart! I was looking for a cream blush that I could wear when I do the "no-makeup" look. After receiving some advice from a Youtuber, I tried this blush out. It is exactly what I was looking for. I have fair, cool-toned, combination skin and this shade gives me a perfect flush. It goes on as a cream blush but dries to a smooth, powdery finish. It looks very natural. This is my new favourite of all the blushes and I will re-purchase it every time I run out!
This would have been my favourite body spray if it wasn't for the plastic smell. I got it on sale with the body wash and they both had that smell in them. I don't think they were old bottles because other people have made the same complaint.
I'm very fair skinned so this colour looks great in the crease. I like to wear it with Naked Lunch and Expensive Pink on the lid. It goes with so many of MAC's other shades. It's probably my favourite matte MAC shade.
This is a really pretty duochrome purple. You can accomplish some really unique looks with this shade. It's not great for everyday wear but I love it!
Of the MAC shadows I've tried, this one was the most disappointing (the others were great!). It's a frost finish so it's not quite as pigmented as the other finishes and it's a little chalky. It is a really pretty shade of pink but you need to build it up a bit. If I could go back in time, I probably would have picked a different pink.
This amazingly beautiful eyeshadow really makes blue eyes pop. I like to wear it with Cranberry in the Fall. It also looks lovely by itself or with many other colours. This one is a must-have.
Love love love! This is a beautiful shadow. I like to wear it with Cranberry but it goes with lots of other colours. It's blends easily and is highly pigmented. I think it'd be flattering on many skin tones.
This is a fantastic colour that I use quite often. It's very versatile and goes well with many other shadows. It blends well and has wonderful pigmentation.
This is another one of my favourite MAC shadows! It's beautiful on its own all over the lid or blended with a crease colour. It's very versatile and goes with many other colours. I like to wear it with Naked Lunch and Swiss Chocolate. It looks beautiful on blue eyes.
This is one of my favourite MAC eyeshadows. I use it most frequently as an inner corner highlight. It's such a pretty, natural colour. One of the looks I like to do with this is put NL in the inner half of lid, Expensive Pink on the outer half and then Swiss Chocolate in the crease. This shadow is very versatile and goes with many colours.
Yup, I've jumped on the Satin Taupe bandwagon, but for good reason. I love this shadow. It can be used all over the lid or in the crease depending on the look you want. I love to wear it on the lid with Star Violet in the crease. Like most MAC shadows, it blends beautifully and is very pigmented.
This shadow is not very pigmented when used on its own but it is great for blending out crease colours. It's a staple colour in my MAC palette.
