This is a great brown for the outer V. It is dark enough to kinda make your eyes pop and make them look bigger. It is more for darker skin tones. I recommend this product!!!
This is a pretty color. I have this color in my lucky tom quad. It is a perfect shade of coral. It is great as an all over lid color.
This color is sooo gorgeous!! I highly recommend this product to everyone!! Looks great on every skin tone. It is a veluxe pearl and its a beige color with gold pearls. It is great as an all over lid color. It adds a pretty wash of color all over.
This is a pretty color. It is a very light lavender. It is great as an all over lid color then use shadowy lady or sketch in the outer V or crease. Looks great on every skin tone. Recommend this product.

I hd high hopes for this product. I use this as a highlight and all it really does is add a lot so shimmer. There is really no color at all with this. I guess it just doesn't work with my skin tone (nc40/42). I won't buy this again and do not recommend this. I only like it has a highlight when I already have dramatic eyes and a somewhat 'darker' blush.

First off, the packaging is so beautiful! I really love this color. It is a great light brown nude. The color is perfect. It is a great nude that doesn't make you look sick. This color would look great on medium to fair skin tones! I highly recommend this if you can get your hands on this.
This brush is great. I use this brush for my pigments. It grabs the right amount of product that I need and applies it so evenly. I can use the tip to apply the pigment on my lower lash line. I recommend this brush! But if you already have a brush that you use to apply any e/s it will do. You don't need this brush by any means, but it just works great with pigments, i think!
This milk color is a shimmery light lavender color. It just kinda looks like kitschmas only a little less sparkley. It is an okay color. If you don't have the right skin tone, then it is just going to look tacky.
This is such a beautiful trio! The packaging is so adorable!! If you are traveling, you can just take this trio along with you!! You apply mood ring all over the lid and cloudburst in your crease/outer V. Then you use hoppin as your highlight. I think this would look great on everyone! They are such beautiful colors!
This is a great color! I use this almost everyday to either set my base on my eyes or as a highlight. I love the fact that its matte2. This is a color that will look good on every skin tone!! It is a definite must have and I would highly recommend this shade for everyone!!
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush - BBR Collection
bvan117 8/21/2009 7:52:00 PM
I have been looking everywhere for this brush. This brush was completely sold out everywhere!!! Now I finally have it, and I absolutely love it! It has such precise application and places the product in the exact place I want it. This is great for people who have a small lid space and can't use something like the 217 or the 224 brush. However this brush is good for blending. The perfect use for it is placing product in your crease and defining your outer V hazily. The bad thing is is that it is a limited edition brush and it is sold out everywhere. You can find it on ebay but beware of fake brushes. If you do happen to find an authentic brush and purchase it on ebay, it will cost you considerably more than what it retails for which is $24.50. If you can't find it there, Chanel makes a brush that is VERY SIMILAR to this one. It is Chanel #3. I actually bought that first, but then I HAD TO HAVE the 226. Chanel's brush works fantastic as well, but that brush retails for $28. If you don't want to spend the money, coastal scents has a great dupe for this brush for only $2.49, which is practically a steal. But the coastal scents brush is more harsh, in my opinion. I used the dupe on my outer V swirling it in a circle and then brushing it back and forth 1/3 in my eye and swirling it actually hurt. So I recommend the 226, it is more soft and it is going to last for a very long time! But like I said, if you dont want to spend the money, get the dupe.
This is a pretty shimmery pink color. It is a frost. This color looks great on every skin tone. You can use it for an all over lid color or use it as a highlight! This color goes on smooth and is easy to blend. This color goes great with hepcat or shroom.
This is a great color for an all over lid! I use this when I am in a hurry and wash it all over my lid. Add a little liner and smudge it and I am out the door!! This is a great color for an alternative smokey eye. If you don't want something that is too dark/dramatic like Carbon, then you should def buy this! You can use it in the crease or outer V to create more depth. I highly recommend this color and when/if I do run out, I definitely will go buy it again! I love how it is a matte 2. This color goes on so smooth and easily blendable. This color looks great on every skin tone and it is very versatile. You can def use this color with A LOT of different shades and it will look great!!

I abs love this brush. This brush is a soft round brush that tapers at the ends. It is great for applying, contouring, and highlighting your eyes. I use this for the outer corner of my eyes. It blends my e/s beautifully placing the e/s exactly where I want it. This brush is used for powder base products, so you can use it for e/s or pigments. The only negative thing about this is the white natural fibers, so it tends to get dirty quickly and with some products it might stain the brush. I basically only use MAC e/s. So far none of the colors I have used this with has stained my brush and I use the darkest of dark with this brush. But this brush may need a little more maintenance but it is definitely worth it. I highly recommend this brush! It is a must-have for any make up lover!! If I just so happened to lose it by chance, I would without hesitation buy another!
This is such a beautiful color. This came out with the new Make Up Art Cosmetics. It is one of 6 shades. Off the Page is a dirty mustard orange that is Frost finish. This is such a bright orange color. A perfect color for the summer. You can use this with Crest the Wave(also in the Make Up Art Cosmetics) or Passionate to create a very vibrant summer eye look. It would be absolutely gorgeous!! Since this is a very unique shade of orange that can't be duped in the permanent line, if you can get your hands on it, I would def go buy it. It blends really nice into Passionate. Passionate and Off the Page really compliment each other. Both of the colors really make the other color POP at the same time. You'll be getting compliments on your eyes all day long until you get sick of it!! Hope this helps :) :)
