Wow wow wow......this is 'the' brush for applying lid colour. Feels divine on the delicate skin of the lid, like silk. Can't fault it, best out there!

What a gorgeous colour, looks so good on and applies beautifully. Got it for a steal on ebay....so happy
Agree with NancyM below, does zero for your lashes
Just beautiful, I have spent 2 years and lots of cash looking for the colour quality and texture of a blush like this. Total winner!
If you have skin like Scarlett Johansson then this will look beautiful on. However those of us less fortunate have an opportunity to make every pore, flaw and blemish show up. I've tried with and without primer and moisturiser and it's still awful. Bought it in 020 (ivory light) , what a total waste of money.
This serum is very effective with continued use, look... nothing is ever really going to make us look younger but this I find makes my skin glow coupled with some good nights sleep this is stuff effective.
OH... MY....GOD! This is sex in a bottle, just purchased for the hubby by chance, opened...sniffed...nearly passed out with the truly manly magnificant masculine headrush I got. Not a summer scent, nor a scent for the younger man, you need confidence and experience to wear this. As one reviewer said expect a bit of 'up close and personal attention' when wearing this.Shockingly it's discontinued!!! but like me you can pick it up on ebay etc at a good price. Swoon swoon swoon.....
Sorry girls but I'm going to rain on the parade...yes this looked like the perfect blush for my ppp skin but it oxidized on my skin NOOOOOOO! I was so disappointed.However it seems I'm alone in this but just to advise anyway
I bought this based on the reviews here and the pic of that girl with the fabulous lashes. What a disappointment! it did NOTHING to my lashes bar colouring them, quite possibly one of the least effective mascaras I have ever used.
This is my first ever MAC product (I know) anyway what a disappointment, it's chalky and has no pigmentation really. When compared with other shadows it really is pretty bad. Goodbye MAC

Bought this on a whim really as I saw it super cheap on ebay and intended it for under eye coverage. But as fate would have it a nice big inflamed spot appeared above my lip, first test of this concealer and it's top marks from the get go. Covered all the area and didn't look obvious or caked, excellent stuff! Works well under eyes too, I have it in 'Ivoire'. The applicator is worthless though. Highly recommended.
Di-vine!Having not worn scent for almost 20 years I decided to take the plunge and try to sniff out a scent that didn't have me running for the shower to rid myself of it. I confess to buying Anais Anais as a 'safe' reminder of my teen years to set me up and then started to look. To my amazement a quick sample of the body lotion on my hand (some kind? soul had opened a box at TK Maxx) had me swooning an hour later. Went promptly back to TK and bought the lotion and Deo, the perfume winging it's way from e-bay as I write. This is the scent I have longed for, classy, chic and simply beautiful.
What a relief that I only tried a spritz of this, it is so sharp and tart smelling like a bug spray, I couldn't wait to get home and wash it off. It smells great just taking a whiff from the bottle and the initial notes are pleasant enough but the dry down is a whole other nightmare.No sale!

Bought this based on the MUA reviews, thankfully I picked it up for 11GBP on ebay because it really isn't for the faint hearted when it comes to lippy. Having such pale skin I thought it would be amazing but it just too strong for me. As a previous reviewer said it's 'cabaret' style colour and that's a perfect description, it would look great on Dita Von Teese! Do not buy this if you have thin lips. I think 'gothic red' would be a more suitable name for it. Of course being a YSL lippy it's top quality but my advice is to try before you buy!
Now that Stila has left European shores ebay is flooded with items so I took advantage and bought this blush in 'Bud' but was sent 'Dance' in error, (the 'Bud' did follow which is a fab shade also) but the what a happy accident to receive Dance! It looks like a horrible 70's cheap pinky peach in the pan but once applied it;s gorgeous! very much a summer blush and when teamed with bronzer it's a winner.
