I recently got Extreme - a bright yellowy lime green colour. I was really disappointed as the colour pay off is rubbish, and it is very chalky. Although the other colours look nice, I will research more before purchasing more.
nice warm festive scent of cinnamon and clove which i liked. however it turned the water yellow which was kind of like lying in a tub full of pee, gross. lol.
I got this free at my lush along with some other products due to the spend twenty pounds get a free gift bag worth 20 pounds or over, this is quite a nice bathbomb with a nice subtle scent - it leaves little stars in the bath also :) didnt really moisturise though or leave a lasting smell, but was fun to watch it fizzing and leaving the water purple. probably wouldnt purchase myself.
This is the first time Ive purchased this, and Ive used it three times so far, while I *do* like it, I dont feel its a must have or essential product for me. It leaves my skin lovely and smooth, but I dont notice a vast difference anywhere else. My skin is usually normal/dry but lately it has been oily, I dont find this helps with this. It is a nice treat for your face, especially if youre warm, and you use this straight out the fridge, but Im sure there are other cheaper face masks out there that would do the same job for me. Would maybe purchase again, but not in the near future.
I waited a while to review this product as at first I was skeptical, and I hated the greasy feeling on my skin - I thought "this is bound to make me break out, if its greasy, surely?" but nope, its made my skin super soft, no breakouts (which im very prone to at the moment) it smells lovely (slightly orangey to me) and removes everything! makes a bit of a mess though, so I apply it, rub it around, remove with cotton pads, then wash my face with whatever gel Im using (Clean and clear at the moment) and its fabulous. Will definitely repurchase, can see this being good value for money too, as Ive been using this almost everynight for the past 2 weeks and its hardly faded down at all!
I needed this blush, as its not my usual shade (im more of a light pink, peach girl) but this burnt red just called out to me. Im quite heavy handed when it comes to makeup application so the first few tries have been disaster lol. Although I just need to learn to use a light hand and I imagine this will look great, Im willing to put in the work.
Initally disappointed with this as it was very glittery/shimmery and I didnt notice a lot of colour, just a sheen, but the more I have used it I am starting to like it, it adds a delicate subtle amount of baby pink. Use with a light hand to avoid looking like a disco ball for day time looks.
I was super excited for the "Colour Craft" collection so had my list wrote month in advance, so I ordered my purchases online and once they arrived I was a little disappointed as the blushes and MSFs are very shimmery and glittery, which is fine but not really subtle enough for daytime looks. I like the glow this MSF gives me though, have to use sparingly to avoid looking like a disco ball, this product will last for ages.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Smooth Merge

I was so excited for the "Colour Craft" collection, and knew I was getting this product months before the collection came out, so once it was released I ordered it online and when it arrived my first instint was disappointment as other people have mentioned it is super sparkly and glittery. I love the colours in it, its really pretty but I have to use a really light hand to avoid looking like I got smacked in the face by Liberace. The darker pink in the middle is nice as a blush with just a little of either of the other shades as a highlight. Use sparingly, I imagine this will last for ages!
Blush -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish - Cheeky Bronze

Really impressed with this, I passed it up at my first trip to the MAC counter for "Colour Craft" as I thought I already owned a lot of bronzer shades, so I picked up 2 of the Trio MSFs instead. After hearing a lot of good reviews on Cheeky Bronze I decided Id give in and order it online, and Im glad I did. It looks great on my skin (medium tanned) and gives me a lovely warm glow. Its ideal for summer, not so sure how it will go for winter, although Im thinking it might be nice with a lighter hand. Very shimmery, so steer clear if thats not for you. I love how its bronzey but has a slight coral tone to it too.
Got this as a Back 2 MAC and I love it. I told myself Id get something different than the usual nude and light pink shades I go for, so this vibrant coral is perfect. Coral is a great colour at the moment and looks good with my dark hair and medium tanned skin. Would recommend.
I love the starflash finishes, so I picked this one up along with several others. To me this is just a basic silver/gray colour, nothing overally special although it is nice. I have other greys that could be comparable but since this texture is great, the pigmentation and ease of blending is all amazing i can justify it. Not a must in my opinion, but nice if you dont have anything in your collection like it.
Greens are my favourite eyeshadow colour to wear, so when I seen this I HAD to have it, but then I put my sensible head on and went and swatched the greens I already owned, THEN went to the MAC counter to swatch One Off - it was nothing like anything I already owned (Humid is much darker imo, and I dont own Swimming) so that justified me getting it. Its a really pretty medium green, and the texture is just perfect. Great pigmentation, and easy to blend. Wish MAC would make the Starflash formulation a regular thing!
What can I say, this is my new FAVOURITE blue colour. It is absolutely gorgeous, Im so glad I swatched it in store as I probably would of passed this up as "just another blue shade" as I already own several. But this has more dimensions to it, theres a blue aspect and a teal/green tone to it also, it is stunning. It looks amazing with "Rated R" eyeshadow from MAC in the inner corner, then this on the outer eyelid, for a dramatic fun look. Would recommend this, great pigmentation and easy to blend.
Adore this colour, its a lovely dark blue with glitter. Great for a pop of colour with a neutral eye or adding more depth to dark colours. Only problem I have is the glitter irritates my eyes a little if applied on the waterline, so I have to be careful to apply this only along my lashline. Still love the product though, but have to deduct one point for that fact.
