This is such a beautiful color. It is a shimmer orange-peachy color. It is gorgeous alone or you can use it as a base. As a base it doesn't crease on you and it helps your e/s adhere so much better to your skin. And with this color, it is going to add a little kick to whatever shade you put on your eye. It comes in a glass jar with a screw top. You can apply it with your fingertips or I use sometimes 252 if I don't want to get my fingers dirty. But I recommend your fingers! The heat from your fingertips will help the paint pot go on much smoother and you can blend it better! Let alone, you can also apply it much faster with your fingertips. Your fingers are the best brushes!!! :) :) But the glass jar has a big opening so that you can reach the product with your fingers NO PROBLEM! I recommend a paint pot for EVERYONE! This shade is beautiful, but it may not work with everyone. But there is a paint pot for every skin tone out there! Paint pots are a definite buy and a must-have!!
Eyes -MAC - Photo Realism quad Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection

I really love this quad. I bought all three quads from the Makeup Art Cosmetics collection and this is by far my favorite even tho purples are my favorite. But with this quad you can do so many different looks and it is cheap!! For the quad and 4 pan e/s, it would be 47.50 if you were to buy everything separate. But you can get it only for the price of $36!! So that is more than $10 off!! Everyone should def go out and buy this quad!! Highly recommend! IT comes with a dark blue shade, a neutral shade, medium green/gray shade, and light swampy green. It is def a must have for this season.
This is such a pretty purple. I am such a sucker for purples. But this color is so bright and vibrant (hence the name). From the style warrior collection, it has adorable packaging. It is a pro color tho. So for non-pro members who still want this and can't get it at their MAC stores anymore, you can call and place an order over the phone.
This brush is great for an all over lid brush. I use it for pigments! Also the tip of this brush is perfect for applying e/s to the lower lash line.
This is such a great quad. There is a great variety of colors. Every color is such a beautiful color too. The packaging is so cute. With this quad you can do so many different looks with it!! All the colors are versatile. If you can get your hands on this quad, you def should!! You won't be disappointed!!
This is my all time fav blush from mac. Too bad it is only LE. This color looks abs. great on my skin tone (nc40/nc42)
I love this color for an all over color. I use this color when I am in a rush and just wash this all over my lid and use my smolder eye-liner and smudge it a little then I am all set to go. It is great for a day time look. It maybe be a little too dark. But it is also a great color for a smokey eye look if you dont want it too look to dramatic. Highly recommend and I would def buy this color again if/when I do run out.
This is a great nude color. i love using this color for a whole wash of color. It is great for setting my base! I def recommend this shade for everyone! it will look great on every skin tone.
I just bought this quad, but now looking back, you can pry find dupes on every color in this quad. It still have very pretty colors and goes on great. But I am sure there are dupes in the permanent line. The great thing about this quad is you are getting the quad and 4 pan eyes which would usually be 3.50 for the quad and $11 for each e/s. So you would really be paying 47.50 if you were to buy it separately, but you are getting all this for the awesome price of only $36. So you dont have any of these shades of purple, then you should def buy this quad. Other than that, you don't really need this. It comes with Lightfall which is a pale pink, Look At The Eyes which is a light violet, In The Gallery which is a dirty blue pink, and finally Private Viewing which is a deep brown plum. All of these are either matte or satin finish except for Look At The Eyes which is a Frost. They all go on very nice and very smooth. And of course, all the colors go well together. You can mix and match and make a lot of different looks with different combos of the shades. However, like I said before there are probably shades that you may already own that are VERY SIMILAR to these shades. So don't waste your money. But if you have NONE of these shades that are close, then this is a definite buy!! :) hope this helps!!
I love this product. This is great as a base and a highlight. I love using this as a highlight and applying a little down the straight of my nose. It is perfect. It is a good amount of shimmer. As a base, it really helps the e/s adhere to my eye. It doesn't crease on me and adds a little shimmer to any e/s. I recommend this product and def will buy again! The great thing about this is that it is a cream. So wherever you put this, it is going to last for most of the day, giving you a nice healthy dewy look.

This is an okay pink. I am a NC40/42 and it just kinda looks too fake on me. I do like how its not too pink.
I love love love this brush. This brush is great for applying color to my lids. It is dense and applies it perfectly. Grabs the right amount of product and precisely places it exactly where I want it. This brush really packs on the color. This is definitely HANDS DOWN the best brush for applying color to your lid. I highly recommend this brush for everyone!!! this is def a must-have for ANY make up lovers!!
I love this eye-liner. It is perfect for smudging. It goes on really smooth and last all day. The bad thing is is that it is a little pricey. This is the most I have every spent on an eyeliner.
This is my favorite dazzleglass. It is a darker brown. It looks great on my skin tone. I use this gloss when I have a more pink lipstick on. It is just perfect for me. The only thing is is that it is kinda sticky.
This is my favorite MAC brush of all time. I use this brush on a daily basis. This is just perfect for blending. I use this to apply my e/s on the outer corner of my eye, and it places the e/s so perfectly on my eye that I don't have to blend it out. This brush does so when applying. This is def a must-have for every make up lover. I highly recommend this brush over all the eye shadow brushes. If I lost this brush, I wouldn't hesitate to go buy a new one because I absolutely love it THAT MUCH!!
