i LOVE this stuff!! though i'm very young (almost 17) i have the WORST under eye circles like you wouldn't believe! they are very dark and though i've only tried 2 other concealers before this, i'd say this is the best concealer. it doesn't completely make my dark circles disappear, but it gets pretty darn close to it. i also use it under my nose a little because i have a small red vein around that area (weird, i know) and it covers it completely. i'd say this is the HG of concealers because its got the best coverage, a pretty good color selection, in its in a tube which is very sanitary. it may be a little expensive for some, but i really don't mind the price, its only about 15 dollars but you are getting way more than your moneys worth for it. as long as it works, thats all that matters to me. i will be buying more whenever i run out.
okay first of all, let me just say that i HATE pencil liners with a passion. so i was really surprised to find that i love this eyeliner! i have the one in green and its so smooth and creamy, and very very pigmented. it does smudge, but very very little. (and i've never seen any pencil liner that doesn't smudge). i don't remember how much it was so i'm just rating it based on the quality of the product. but overall i'd say this is a really really great eyeliner, i plan on buying more in the future.
i really love all the hip duos that i have. they are very pigmented and they don't fade. i thought this one was going to be my favorite, but it wasn't.....not that i don't like it, because i do. but i find that the orange isn't as bright as it appears to be....but if applied wet, it is absolutely GORGEOUS! i really love bright colors, and this one is really vibrant. and the lighter color is a great higlight color, or just a great color if you want a more neutral look....well at least for me it is :)

i LOVE this!!! i also have this in pink champagne, but smokey topaz is my favorite between the two of those. it's very pigmented, and when used wet, it looks even better. i uploaded a picture for pink champagne, and i tried to find one for smokey topaz, but i couldn't. which is a shame because its a very beautiful and unique color.

i don't think this is getting discontinued because i bought this either in november or december and it wasn't that long ago. but i really love this shadow! its really sparkly and the color is amazing! and if it's used wet, it is 100 times better! the only complaint i have about this product is the packaging. it has this really terrible brush right in the middle of it which makes it hard to get the product out. what i do is just pour some out into the cap, but i know once i run low on this, it's gonna be almost impossible to get the product out.
okay this was my first mac product, as well as my first powder foundation. it was given to me as a gift, and the color is a little dark for me (nc35) but its not too noticeable. but aside from that i really really love this! the coverage is great, which surprised me because i used to think that any kind of powder foundation wouldn't cover that well, but this one actually covers better than any liquid foundation that i've used. and i love that it's so easy to apply. this is great when you don't have much time to do your makeup because it doesn't take alot of time to get great coverage with this :)
Eyeliner -Milani - Black Magic Liner & Eye Glimmer #01

i have this in #2, blackened blue. and at first i really really hated it!! i don't even like pencil liners but the only reason i bought it was because the photo of the model wearing it looked great, but i was fooled. it looks nothing like the photo.....but i thought the liner side was really pretty. so i decided to use it as a black eye shadow base, and i loved it!!! i just ignore the glitter side because its just crap. no matter how hard you apply it, it barely shows up. but if you want a nice black base with some blue in it, this works really well :)
