Very cheerful color as the name suggests! This blush shouts PINK from the pan, its so different when it is transfered onto my skin. The colour is buidable but I find I can't over do it. A couple of layers, and I can still see my skin. You can wear this blush very subtle or bright depending on your preference and it lasts all day.
What a lovely peachy blush from Mac, I bought this off Strawberrynet after falling in love with 'Pet Me', one of their pink mineral blushes from the same collection. After using so many pink blushers, this was a nice color change for me and so appropriate for summer. I love the dome shape, I like the soft peachy color in the pan, and it doesn't look over the top orange, just natural color on the cheeks. You can mix it with other pink blushers it you wanted it more pink but ther is no point really cos this does well by itself. NC20 for reference
This is the only nars brozer I own, it came in a duo pack with a Deep throat blusher in a Nars "Hopelessly Devoted" set. The Duo is sleek and has a big pocket mirror. The Laguna and Deep Throat colors go together so well. Laguna darkens gradually without looking muddy, this color suits most fair complexions. It is a very popular color from the Nars range.

The Laguna and Deep Throat colors go together so well. The blush is a very cool bright pink with shimmer. Its very pigmented, I use a light hand and a fluffy blush brush to apply to cheeks. It is blendable and can its intensity can be built up. This color suits most people and it is a very popular blusher from the Nars range. I am NC20, Deaville for reference
I was getting my make done at Mecca Cosmetica and the MUA tried this stuff on my cheek bones. I saw rosey color cream on her fingers and thought most highlighters I've tried are silvery, champagney, glittery....I looked in the mirror. ahhh GLOWY. This is soooo pretty! Though I had enough in my makeup budget for foundation that day, the MUA dispensed some in an empty lip containers. You can put as little or as much as you like on. Because of the rosey colour. it can sit over a blush well. Definitely gonna be my next purchase :)
A few shades lighter than my usual contour product by Mac, Harmony. I use this as a contour, I can build it up as a bronzer as well. It's not orangey but a nice tan. I would probably buy this again but there is so much product in this little box so I probably won't. I would probably go and buy one as a gift or something =)
I've had this for a little while, say a couple months, I've used it once or twice, Im a little confused as what it is doing when I put it on my face. It gives me pink patches, maybe I should where this on my cheeks underneith a blush. I don't know, the smell of it doesn't appeal to me either. I like the packaging. I just not a fan of the product. Maybe if it dispense a concealer or a cream blush.

When in search for a red lippy the MUA picked this out for me, the formula glides on smoothly, though when trying it out at the counter, I kinda patted it on carefully, the color was really bold for me and the MUA remarked I could use it as a stain as well and recommended Venetian lustre glass on top. Anyway, the finish was similar to Anna Sui glossy lipsticks. it lasts a few good hours, I only reapply after eating. I have no problem with the packaging. It's a nice glossy black tube. I guess thats a reminder to whats inside. I have read a couple of reviews saying the lid is hard to take off. Well I would rather have a lipstick that seals properly rather than have one that falls apart in my bag. It's not nice seeing an opened Anna Sui lipstick in your bag and the product been contaminated by the dust and dirt particles.
Im starting to get into the red lip, though I'm scared of doing anything bold, this is a good starter to wear on it's own for a nice berry lip, I love the feel of it and it can be layered on as well.
I have this included in the Big Beatiful Eyes kit in Medium, As part of a kit it plays well finishing up the big beautiful eye look as an undereye concealer, though I find it a little drying for my skin, I prefer a lighter creamier "wet" concealer as opposed to this on its own.
I got this as a sample size in benefits "Finding Mr Bright" Kit. A previous cheek tint I used was Stila gel in Cherry Flush which I had to layer on to get color. This little bottle had this creamy bright pink on the brush. It stains quickly so literally had seconds to blend it in. It did leave a good color on my face but the I saw the pink marks that I had dotted on stained into the skin. You really have to work fast with this product. The colour looks flattering on NC20 tones, its personal preference when it comes to blushes and how you would like to apply it. I will keep this in my travel bag conveniantly for its mini size, but I don't think I will upgrade to a full bottle.
Anna Sui has the most prettiest packaging, I bought this off Strawberry net, which pretty much introduced me to Anna Sui Makeup, I can only find their fragraces here in Australia. Anyway I think I have kept this tin for a year now and I'm half way through, its good value for money. I have to agree with a previous reviewer it is like a pale pink vaseline. It has a rosey scent to it that I have grown used to, cos I use it every day.

When looking for a nude lipstick shade, the MUA picked this out for me, trying it on it glided on smoothly, the color was very close to my lip colour, and it had a nice glossy finish. The finish was similar to Anna Sui glossy lipsticks. I use this everyday, and lasts a few good hours, I only reapply after eating. I have no problem with the packaging. It's a nice glossy black tube. I guess thats a reminder to whats inside. I have read a couple of reviews saying the lid is hard to take off. Well I would rather have a lipstick that seals properly rather than have one that falls apart in my bag. It's not nice seeing an opened Anna Sui lipstick in your bag and the product been contaminated by the dust and dirt particles. Overall a great base shade for NC20 skin, I feel I'm going to go through this lipstick within a couple of months cos it is so glossy its like lip balm. I can't wait try other shades though I would probably buy this color again.
When I first bought this to use with my mac studio fix fluid, the foundation would some how rub the primer off, I would be pulling little dabs of dried primer off my chin. I don't know how it happend, maybe I didn't blend well enough? So I put the primer aside, and just used tinted moisturiser. When it was time to buy a new foundation, I went for the mac mineralized loose powders and skin finish naturals but realized I needed a primer. So Prep+Prime Skin made a huge come back. It made a smooth base for my skin and made my powder foundation last my whole work day. I would like to try other Mac primers, one that focuses on reducing pores.
I got this with Benefit Brighter and Badder kit so I felt I saved a bit of money. Generally, I like this mascara, it does clump my lashes, it has this big brush and it's easy to apply, I do have a habit of rubbing my eyes, and forgetting I have mascara on, It flakes but not as much. I won't buy this again, cos I would like to try other mascaras.
