This product was recommended to me by my friend who is a makeup artist. I love it and here are the reasons why - 1. The packaging is great it allows you to squirt out the exact amount you need, better than a pump or any other type of packaging I have seen. 2. The price is great considering the amount of product you get. 3. The color blends so well 4. It's great for people like me who don't like thick cake like foundation 5. My skin absorbs it really well, it looks dewy after. The only negative comment I can make is that it took me a while to get the hang of how to apply it. I can't apply it with a brush, it just doesn't work for me. I just apply with my fingers. If you do a single layer the coverage is very minimal, so I let it dry and add another layer. You just have to play with it to see what works for you. It's a great buy, my favorite MAC foundation.
My favorite lipstick ever!!!!! Perfect for everyday use. It's creamy, soft, and it smells like vanilla. The color is a perfect pinky coral. I used to use Shy Girl as my everyday lipstick, but I switched to this one because I like the pink undertones.
This product is worth every penny. It has beautiful pigmented metallic colors. There are a couple matte shadows but most of them are shimmery. If you don't like shimmery eye shadows, don't buy this. I usually just wear one color all over my eye lids as an everyday look, so these colors are perfect for that. No need to reapply because the colors stay on all day. I would say the quality of the shadows are just as good as my mac eye shadows. For referent I have tan NC40 skin and these colors work so well with my skin tone.
I bought this after reading the great reviews however, I don't really like this product. Its hard to build the color on my NC40 skin tone. Once the product is on it looks too sparkly because it has gold specs in it. I think I would have liked a more solid peachy color. I think this would work on more fair skin tones, I just don't think it works for my skin tone.
I bought this shampoo because it was buy one get one free...pretty much a steal. I really think all shampoos do the same thing for me. This was no different. I have really easy hair to manage. It was average, not great not bad. I will buy again if it is buy one get one free because it smells yum.

I applied this with my MAC 130 (great brush btw). I am NC42 and it did not really look like blush on me. It blend right in with my skin and just looked like glitter. I think i will use it as a highlighter or es base (not sure yet). It is not fair to give this product a bad review because the color didn't work for me. So I will say I love the texture although I would imagine it is not sanitary to apply with your fingers. The packaging is a bit bulky but nothing major. I would rebuy in another color since I do like the product.
I picked this hair spray up at Marshalls for 5 bucks, what a steal. I hadn't read the great reviews I just needed hair spray. I curled my hair with a 1.5 inch barrel 2 days ago and my curls are still in, mind you I have straight hair. Not slick straight but def. not even wavy.
Mascaras are one of those things I refuse to buy high end because of mascaras like this. This mascara is amazing, it makes my already lon lashes thick and plush and the black carbon color is so intense. I think I will use this forever or until I find something better lol
I have big almond shaped eyes so I didn't have a problem with this curler but I could see how people with smaller eyes would have a problem. The curler does its job IMO. I see a lot of reviews saying that it pinches or hurts them, I think they don't know how to use a curler lol....I've been using it for 3 weeks and no pinching thus far lol
I wish I would have read the reviews on here like I normally do before I bought the product. I have normal skin and never break out, for years I had been using misc. scrubs exfoliators, cleansers, toners: all from the drug stores. I decided to give Clinique a try because I wanted to try something a bit more high end. I was told that in the beg, the product would cause me to break out because it was "cleaning my skin". Well the begining was 3 months ago and I was left with the breakout stuff. I stopped using it 3 days ago all together and my face is already much clearer. Overall I find the DD mois. to be the only one I would even consider buying and I think I will continue to use it. The toner is waaaaay to harsh and I could by a better toner for a lot less. The cleanser didn't do anything to me but cause me to breakout. I blame the products for my breakout because nothing else in my lifestyle has changed. I don't recommend this 3 step program. I am sure clinique has other great products that can be bought sep. edit: I hate this crap, I hate how on their website: they have wonderful feedback
I am NC42 and I love this paint pot. I wear it every day to work. It is perfect. It is subtle not to flashy and makes my eyes so bright and awake. I think this color looks best on tan skin tones. The product def. lasts all day.
As the previous reviewer said, the color payoff is wonderful. The color payoff is what makes MAC lip glosses so wonderful to me. On the not so great side, this lip gloss makes my lips peel. I dont know why it does this, I own a ton of MAC lip glosses and this is the only one that does this to my lips. I love this color which is the reason I continue to purchase, until I find a better dupe I will continue to buy
Yes its a 40 dollar brush and yes it is amazing....I use it to apply foundation concealer and highlighter....its a wonderful investment and I will be purchasing a second one in case something happens to this one...I'm not sure if its part of the permanent line of brushes but its great....better than the bigger version of it
