Love the color, hate the packaging. And why does mine smell like Bananas & Chocolate? That doesn't seem right.
Wow. I think I'm the only one who loves this product. I bought this and First Base via the VIP sale to just try it out since hey...it was at drugstore prices. I always have problems with eyeshadows creasing. I've tried everything. EVERYTHING. Powder, concealer, MAC paints, UD Primer, MAC's P+P, MAC's shadesticks, MAC's CCB's, etc. Nothing works as good as First/Second base on me. To each her own.
The packaging isn't all that great and my first thoughts when opening the lid was, "geez, that's way too pink!". But after I tried it on I fell in love. Gives off a nice glowing effect. Not to sparkly like I initially thought it would be. The packaging again...eh.
I agree with the previous comments. Does not last long and is SO not worth buying full price for. Thankfully I only spent $3 on it.

I agree with cyndiinphilly -- MAC needs to make this product permanent! While BE works almost as well, it's fairly messy. MAC's MSF gives, IMHO, a better airbrushed, buffed appearance than any other mineral foundations that I've tried without the mess of a jar & sifter. In addition, it lasts ALL DAY even in 90+ degree temperature. I'm highly prone to oiliness in the t-zone and I never had to bring out my blotting papers once when I wore this. It's my HG!
The color of the product is very deceiving in the tube because it shows up as a pearly-irridescent nude on the lip. Love it tons!

I'm MAC NW30/BE Medium Tan/Stila Dark and this gives me the best GLOWING effect ever. It doesn't make me look shiny or oily at all. Definitely a keeper!
This product is great....if you're trying to look like Bob Barker!! I'm NW30 and this stuff made me look like an ORANGE! No thanks!

Gone through 3 tubes already! Way better than Benefit's You Rebel.
Lure-X looks great when paired with Fresh Moraccan l/s. Just a dab in the center of your lips and voila! Very sexy ;)
LOVE this scent! I'm on my 2nd bottle and I think I'm going to buy another. It's very fresh and light, my ultimate fave.
Ouch. It scratches my face and sheds all over the place. Did I mention, ouch!?

Not too happy about the film of powder these leave behind...makes me look ghostly. However, it does the job.
It does wonders for my stick-straight-hard-to-curl eyelashes. It is my most prized posession! jk...ok...maybe just a little :)

I use this in my daughter's hair pre and post-hair drying. It leaves her hair silky smooth and very manageble. It is kinda greasy so be sure not to use too much.
