This is a very good highlighting concealer. It has a nice and very light texture. It is not a covering concealer: for spots, very dark circles, or excessive redness, for example. But if you don't have such kind of issues, it provides a mild coverage and highlighting for the areas you want to brighten up, and it looks as if you don't wear anything on your face. Really "airbrush"! Very good, I recommend it.
This mascara makes my lashes look great, with every kind of make up. It doesn't feel dry or heavy, and I can work it very easily. It smudges a little after a few hours, especially if the skin around your eyes becomes oily, like mine. I've been using it for over a year and it's probably the best drugstore mascara I've tried so far. The smell and the size of the brush and the tube are not bothering at all for me. I definately recommend it.
I use it for almost everything: lining, smokey look, on the crease, and more rarely for filling my brows (only because it fits better on dark brows- mine are lighter). Great on top of eyeliner/pencil, either to set it and keep it from smudging, or to make the line look softer and more refined. Its matte, cool, not extremely dark colour makes it a basic product in my vanity case. Its greyish shade flatters brown eyes. When I travel, I take this and an eyebrush, and I don't even need any eyeliner with me. Also, the texture/quality is very good, and it stays well and long on oily lids, but I would say this about all MAC eyeshadows that I've tried. Very convenient for me.
Objectively, this is a very good eyeshadow. Great texture, and it stays well and long on oily eyelids. When I want to look natural yet polished, without trying much, I put only this on with a generous amount of mascara, and it does the work. Also, it can be used as a highlighter on the cheeks- only in the summer for me, because I'm quite pale. In fact, I'm not crazy about the colour, I find it too gold and old-fashioned on me. I think it would look better on fair-to-medium skin types and not on very fair ones. This is why I wouldn't buy it again, but this just my preference. Overall: great quality, it can be worked in many different ways and easily combined with other products.
This was my first brush ever. I've used it for powder, blush, contouring... It works great! It hasn't shedded almost at all, although I've been using it every day for 9 years, and washed it many many times. Great brush.
Lip Gloss -Korres - Cherry Full Colour Gloss in 52

I like this lip gloss. The colour is exactly the colour I want on my lips; sheer, not intense, but bright enough to look beautiful. It's shiny, but again, the shine is not intense and not pearly. You could say it looks very natural. I've noticed that it looks very nice in photos, too. It's great for dry lips, as it makes them look soft and moisturized. However, it doesn't stay long, even when I don't talk, drink, eat, etc.. I have to touch up all the time. Another problem is that it often pours out of the tube, when I carry it in my bag. And if I tighten the cap, then it's very difficult to open. This happens every time I buy one, but I am very pleased with its other qualities, and it is one of the few products I keep buying again and again- for almost three years now. Ideal for natural or discreet make up.
