Love this. I bought this and ripe peach and was most excited about ripe peach. But this colour is beautiful and I prefer it to ripe peach. I use it on top of my contour colour and it gives me the perfect pink colour for my colouring (NC37). I have had it for over 10 days now and have been wearing it every day. It is very long lasting and will last a full working day (10 hours for me inc travel). The price is fair as it is such a big pan it will last a long while!

Ok so I managed to get a sales assistant at Mac to hold one of these for me on the day of the release. It is a nice blush, it's just a bit overhyped I think. In the pan it doesn't look like anything else I have ever seen (but now I am hearing that Estee Lauder do an exact dupe!) so I can see the why everyone was obsessing over it. I am NC37 and this didn't show up particularly well on me, it gives me a bit of colour and it does give a lovely sheen to my skin. However, on my mum who is lighter than me (and blonde, I'm brunette) NC30, it looked amazing! It showed up a lot deeper on her and gave her a lovely coral/bronze look.
Love this product! Family members have used this for years and have great skin so being in my 20s have decided a while ago that I need to take better care of my skin. Been using this product for a couple of years and it's great. I get quite a bit of dry skin around my nose area and makeup can look cakey there. Not after a few days with this. Other reviewers have said they get break outs but it is an exfoliator and when I don't use it for a while then when I use it again I get a small break out too. Doesn't last long and is from the product cleaning out your pores! Gives a great fresh and clean feeling but you need to use a good moisturiser afterwards (it does say this on the back) but this is common sense when using a face scrub.
Have had my eye on this for a while now and love it!! It applies so beautifully and sinks into your skin, buffs out lovely with the 130 brush and have had no cakiness so far. I have worn this for a full day (12 hours) and it stays on well, I have combination skin, quite oily in the t-zone area and this foundation does not make me any oilier, actually I am less oily than when I wear MUFE HD. I do set with a powder and touch up with a powder twice throughout the day. I would say it is a buildable medium coverage foundation so probably not best for those that want full and I find that the shades are 1 shade darker than studio fix (I wear NC35 in SF and purchased NC30 in this and they are the same). Very impressed!
Got this on back to mac and it is ok but not my favourite lipstick. It washes me out more than creme d nude does! It is ok with a nice gloss over it but I won't purchase it again.
I like this brush but I don't love it and I don't think it's one of them must have brushes. Personally I find it too small to apply foundation as it would take forever to do my whole face but I love using it after I have applied my foundation to buff in problem areas like nose, mouth and hairline. It works great with creme foundations and prefer this to my other skunk brushes.

I love this eyeshadow. I swatched it on my hand and didn't really think much of it but bought it anyways as I thought I could work with it and found it pretty. When I got home and patted it on with a small shadow brush it was amazing, I too have green eyes and it does wonders. I can go out wearing just this shadow and it looks like I have taken time and effort to apply a couple of layers of separate products. It is quite dark so I would probably only wear this in the evening/weekend but a swatch on your hand shows up so much more glitter than it does when applied on your eyes. It has just the right amount. It stays on all day! So you really have to work with one eye at a time if you want to smoke it out with a darker colour as it sets pretty quickly.
I do love Mac sheertone blushes as they allow you to build up the colour. I have never had a problem with them not being very pigmented. I love this colour on my NC40 skin, shows up just perfect for a flush of colour and I pop some bright pink on top on my apples. Lovely!
Love this colour, very natural! I also wear this on my lips, it's the perfect colour for me, wish they made a lipstick of it. I have a few Mac creme blushers and this is one of my favourites for an everyday look. They last all day and don't turn my face oily! Thumbs up.
Surprisingly doesn't wash out my NC40 self. Most nudes do and I have to wear gloss on top but Hue I can wear alone, I do pair it with ample pink gloss though and makes a perfect nudey pink combination.
I use this brush everyday to apply a base colour to my lid up to my browbone, I use it to blend out the crease colour and to apply my highlight to brow bone and cheeks. Very versatile. When I went to purchase it I was told not to use it on my eye area by the SA, I can't understand why, it is soft and does not irritate my eyes at all. I could not live without this and my 217.
I love this shade, I use creme d' nude underneath and it gives a lovely nude lip with a hint of pink. A total nude lip washes out my NC37 face so this is great. It has some glitter in it which doesn't show up too much, just gives a nice sheen and the colour doesn't wear off and leave glittery lips. On my 4th tube now :o)
Product is amazing, lasts a whole day without budging but after a few weeks it dries out which is very annoying. I wish they would do smaller pots for a cheaper price. But as far as long lasting eyeliner goes, this is the best!

I really like this product, it's gorgeous, smooth application and great staying power. I just feel you get too little product in it considering how much you pay so will probably not buy this again.

Ahhh I loved this product SO much, it went on smoothly and it stayed put all day!! Did not budge one bit!! I have slightly oily skin and did not need to blot or powder all day. The only problem is that I had a bad reaction to one of the ingredients and had a bad rash on my face which took ages and a trip to the doctors to get rid of. Was nasty so have steered clear of anything dior since. I don't have sensitive skin and I don't break out etc. it was just one of those things. But I did love it for a day or two, thought I had finally found my HG :-(
