This is a very pretty color, great pigmentation but it just doesn't suit my skintone. There's something about it that doesn't look good on me, I think it's too peach. I'm NC20 (almost NC15 now) with blue eyes if you're wondering.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Warming Trend--Cool Heat collection
lilblue10 3/20/2012 10:39:00 PM
I bought this on Allcosmeticswholesale.com which is know to sell genuine Mac so if you want it, last time I checked there was still 219 left :P This a taupey brown with a gold sheen. It is so pretty and unique. It looks really good with a dark brown in the crease and a white gold in the inner corner. Very wearable, and I get so many compliments on how my eyes pop when I wear this (I have blue eyes). I'm very pale with yellow undertones and this color compliments everything about me.I gave 4 because the pigmentation is good but not awesome which I would like since I'm paying 18$ (CA) for one eyeshadow,
I love this as a transition color in the crease to soften dark eyeshadows. The only big disappointment I have is that the color is soooo much darker than it looks in the pan, I ordered it online and was shocked when I swatched it. It's still a great color. Pigmentation is okay, its pretty soft and blend well. I would buy it again
Eyes -MAC - Photo Realism quad Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection
lilblue10 3/20/2012 10:28:00 PM
I actually only have the color ''Photo Realism'' in pan because I bought it on a blog sale ! So my review is for this one color only. It's a pale taupey gold, that looks really good all over the lid or in the inner corner when I do a darker look. It's not that pigmented so you kinda have to pack it on but the color is so unique that it is worth it in my opinion
This is such an amazing eyeshadow ! It's very pigmented and soft and the color is amazing. It looks pink in the pan but it actually is a white gold with the slightest pink undertone. It is one of my favorite eyeshadow by Mac. Its similar to Photo Realism but with a pink undertone instead of a taupey one.

I bought this because of all the great reviews here. I HATE it. Pros: -Full coverage Cons: -So sticky,it never dries even when I put a powder on top. It just made it more cakey -Cakey. I tried my Beauty Blender,Mac 187,Sigma f80/f82,fingers.Nothing worked it still looked cakey as hell. -Heavy. You can really feel on your skin. -Color selection is awful. -Not long lasting at all. Start to get oily after 3 hours. -Emphasize dry patches. -Doesn't blend well. Revlon Colorstay is 1000X better.Get this one instead if you're looking for a full coverage and long lasting foundation
I actually wasn't expecting much when purchasing it, but I always have a hard time with my foundation because I have a lot of acne scars and big pores. My skin is just really hard to work with overall, I can't never get the perfect,flawless application I so want. I thought my Sigma F80 was working pretty well but got a little bored so I thought why not try this. I bought the 2 pack because its way cheaper that way and figured that if I didnt like it I could always swap the unused one. Turns out I love it, seriously I know its just a sponge but there is something MAGIC about it. My Revlon Colorstay look flawless when I apply it with the BB. I think it works better with thicker liquid foundation because I've tried it with my Mac Studio Sculpt ( which is a gel ) and its awful lol. But I mostly wear full coverage foundations which are generally thicker so its not a problem to me. I'm so glad I tried it and won't ever be without it again
This eyeliner is the worst I've ever seen. Even my 1$ ELF one is far better. First off this isn't black, it's grey. Not even a dark grey, a very sheer one.The staying power is ridiculous, i did a swatch on my hand, let it dry for 20 minutes then rubbed it and everything was gone. But I think the worst part is the tip, I'm not skilled when it comes to eyeliner but I can always manage to get a pretty okay line but this AWFUL,the tip is so big and large there's no way I'll ever be able to get it right.I actually didn't buy this it came as a gift with a mascara I bought ( which I didn't like either : Fasle Fiber Lashe ) so I don't feel too bad about throwing it out, but I saw this retails for like $10 CA, its just ridiculous. Save your money there are tons that are way better and more affordable than this one
These are seriously overhypped. I have 14 of them and none of them has blown my mind. The pigmentation is not great, I mean I'm paying 16$ ( CA ) for just one eyeshadow I think I can expect better than having to pack on the color for it to show up on my lid. I mean they're not bad, they're totally usable I just don't think they're worth it, Urban Decay makes MUCH better eyeshadows in my opinion. Maybe I didn't get the right ones cause everyone seem to love them I have : -Satin Taupe -Woodwinked -Amber Lights -All that glitters -Warming Trend -Patina ( I THINK ITS THE WORST ) -Trax -Star Violet -Stars and rockets -Juxt ( oh actually that might be the worst ) -Omega -Photo Realism -Solar White -Nehru I can honestly say that the only ones with decent color pay off are Woodwinked,amberlights and satin taupe.The only reason I will keep buying them is because of the huge range of colors but I will make sure to make my research before and go swatch them myself.
I really like this mascara ! I have pretty long lashes and this makes them longer and fuller, it lasts pretty long and doesn't clump my lashes ! And its sooo black. I would repurchase
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - ColorIcon Palette in #249 Vanity [DISCONTINUED]

I went through 2 of them already and when I went to buy another at my drugstore I was told it was discontinued, I panicked and went to every drugstore near me and couldn't find a single one !! I had to buy it on Ebay for freakin' 14$ !!! Yes that how much I like this palette, I'm just in love with the 2 lighter matte shades, I use them everyday. So if it's still available where you live, don't hesitate and just buy it , you won't regret it !
This is one of my favorite peach blush it's so beautiful. It's not overly shimmery which I really like, it just gives a nice glow, very summery. I'm NC20 for reference. I would buy this blush again
At first I was kind of scared when I received it, it looks so brown in the pan, but it is such a pretty color. It warms up my complexion and acts as a bronzer and a blush as the same time. It's pigmented and blends very well. I'm NC20 and this is just beautiful on my pale skin
Palettes -Urban Decay - 15 year anniversary palette
lilblue10 3/6/2012 12:53:00 AM
I loooove this palette, its just perfect ! A mix of neutral and colorful eyeshadows that are super pigmented. It's a great deal and the packaging is just so pretty, not very practical but its an anniversary palette. I'm so glad I bought it !
Its a must-have when you like bright eye makeup ! It makes colorful eyeshadows so much more vibrant. Some people complain about how they're creasing, well if you use a good primer underneath and you dont apply too much, you shouldn't experience any creasing at all !
