This is a great gel liner. It goes on like a dream, its soft and easy to control. I dont use the brush that it comes with as I dont feel I can get the shape that I want with it. I normally use my own pencil liner brush and it work really well.
I have had this product for ages. it has a long felt tip applicator, but I still feel like i have control over the lines that I'm creating. I love this liner and will buy again

Great for liquid foundation . I used this to buff in my studio fix fluid and it gives it a flawless finish. its washes so easily with a little shampoo and dries perfectly. I would advise anyone to get this foundation

quite a few years ago when i first got into mac an SA said this product was good.....i thought ok I'll buy it......I found it the other day, and it really is a waste of money, i try and use it above my cheek bones as a highlight or mix it with my matte blush to make it shimmer. you have to have the right brush to apply it otherwise it goes on patchy and falls into the pores. If you dont put it on the right part off you face you look ill or have very puffy cheek bones. Im an NC50 doesnt look amazing, but ok...thinkit would look better on olive or NC45 ish tones...also to much and you look like a glitterball.
I like this palette, sometimes the colours can crease, but its about not using a heavy hand. When you apply the primer really pat it into the skin. I sometimes wear some of the colours on there own.

Great colours for all skin tones. has a mirror in the compact to make apllication on the go easy. the case is slim line so fits into your bag. the colours are very pigmented. if your thinking about getting one....get it!
Love this colour for my NC50 skin, I use it as wash of colour on my lid, underneath a golden/orange primer, and blend them both out with a blending brush, then a nude lip gloss....beautiful, very natural, easy to wear and classy. (primer the orange tone in the sleek primer palette) (nude lipgloss-Mac spite...I think)
before I brought this product I read a couple of reviews....I thought why not Im sure it will look great.....oh no...on my NC50 skin, it makes me looked washed out and a little bit ill. I know so many people love this for darker skin tones, but i think it works better on NW tones then NC tones. next time i'll go for twinks
Im an NC50 and this product is great on its own for a smoky eye, just apply the eyeshadow to the lid, then smoke it out with a blending brush, ad some black kohl pencil to the top and bottom lash line a bit of mascara or falsies and your ready to go. I would say use a primer just to get the coulour to pop a bit more, and you really need to pack it on but im very happy.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this mascara. If you want full, sexy lashes then get this mascara. You can build the product to get the fullest lashes in town or you can use 1 or 2 coats to get a really natural full lash effect. It can falldown during the day, but it all depends on how much you apply and it can be removed with a normal make-up remover. This product can be found on special offer at superdrug and is on special offer at the moment, so grab it!
I brought the WATERPROOF version of this mascara. The brush is very narrow, which is great for picking up small lashes. I had no clumps, and no falldown during the day....so thats the good. The reason why I gave it a 2 overall is....Its so hard to remover it! i used a really good waterproof eye make-up remover and still it wasnt going anywhere. my eyelashes felt like there were covered in melted plastic. Eyelashes are very delicate, and I dont like rubbing them within an inch of there life. If you are thinking of buying this I would say try the non waterproof.
At all times I have LF in my bag. Its a great product. I mainly use it on my hands as a handcream, because I have VERY dry hands. LF works really on the parts of the body if you have dry patches. I would be lost if it wasnt for this cream. I've used it for 6 years and have tried other hand creams but allways come back to LF. Yes the smell is strong, but for soft beautiful skin and nails....who cares. the lemon in it will help keep your nails white and the many other things like shea butter and avacodo butter will keep ash and dry skin at bay
This product didnt break me out. If your thinking of buying this read about it on the website...I went in to speak to the SA about this product and the SA said it had NO sillicone......funny when the website states it does and so does the box....so if you have issues with sillicone,avoid this product. I think you only need a little bit of this product. I used about 3 pumps (silly I know) and when i put my foundation on after a few hours all my foundation fell into my smile lines and it looked like I had a cast over my face. when I used the normal 1 pump....my foundation looked smooth, flawless and beautiful.
I have used this blush for years! I use NC50 in mac, and the golden shimmer really complement my skin tone. I takes me about 2 years to finish this blush, so I think it value for money. The only down side is sometimes the clear plastic cover sometimes falls out (easy to put back in) and if its in your bag..........well its not great. all in all great of warm skin tones and really makes a netural look pop.
Great product if you have oily or combo skin. love the little rice grains that scrub my skin. I use this product when my skin is oily and spotty, and after using it for 2 weeks my skin is clear and glowing. If its clear I normally use angels on bare skin. This product is NOT a make-up remover. if you want a make-up remover + face wash look at lush's ultabland
