I really like the color payoff of this lipstick. If i want a more peachy look then I apply the lipstick by itself, great for the spring/summer look. When I want the nude lips look then I apply a more nude lip gloss over and I achieve the nice warm nude lips. I find that this lipstick doesn't make my teeth look yellow like other products I have tried.
I really like mascara b/c it doesn't drag my lashes down! It really does thicken my lashes, making it look darker and a little bit fuller. This mascara doesn't really smudge as much as other mascaras that I've tried.
Loose Powders -Laura Mercier - translucent loose powder

I really like the Loose Powder in Ivory because it has a light hint of color in it, however it's no longer available. I really like the feeling of this powder. It doesn't leave my face too matte. It's enough matte, but still has a nice silky feeling to it.
Almost great as OPI. I love the color range and the nail polish stays on and last pretty long w/o top coat and lasts even longer w/ top coat!
Would definitely recommend this product. A variety of colors, so it's easy to find your shade. One foundation palette is great for both winter and summer when the skin color changes. I like how I can use it as a light coverage foundation (when thinning it out w/ moisturizer or a mixing medium ) to heavy coverage.

I absolutely love mac fluidliner. I have macroviolent,brown,and a dark green color. and of course all my time usage blacktrack! I use this on most of my customers! This is my go to eyeliner. It's almost irreplaceable. This is how much I love it! It's longlasting,smooth, and it doesn't smudge as much!Ughhh, I hate it when my eyeliner smudges excessively, but with this product, my eyeliner doesn't smudge as much. Don't get me wrong, it still smudges but very minimal. Not to mention, It stays on so well that I sometimes wear this going to the swimming pool.
I needed a smaller version of the 187 brush and got this. I tried it and the brush smells a bit and I had to clean it twice and do a deep cleaning to get rid of the smell, BUT that's not the POINT! This brush is very versatile! It's great for cream & foundation application.It's pretty small but it works magic! It gives a really nice flawless & almost airbrush finish. I say almost airbrush b/c based on my personal preference, an airbrush finish is a lot thinner and it provides good coverage.
Treatments -Neutrogena - On the Spot Acne Treatment Vanishing Formula

I would break out occasionally with a few pimples and I needed a product that will eliminate the pimples. This product did nothing for me. It didn't even reduce the redness or shrink the size of my pimples. I'm still searching for the right blemish product.
Studio tech provides a nice coverage, it's buildable so you can have a light coverage if you thin it out or for a heavier coverage,you add more . Some people who use studio tech may feel that it's cakey but when it's applied correctly then you'll receive a great face. For a more sheer/or coverage, I either use a damped sponge for application or slightly damped brush. Remember, a little goes a long way,too much will cause the cakiness.I also use a Mac mixing medium to thin out the foundation and it really gives a flawless look. It's great for photos. I would apply a moisturizer w/ spf underneath and then apply the studio tech and apply mac skinfinish natural to set the makeup and it lasts literary all day and doesn't cake. It's 29.50 which is pretty pricey but for pro members, you get 40% off so it's 17.70$
