What can I say, for $1.49 at Shoppers you can't go wrong! I just purchased this polish in Lime Up! (neon green) and it goes on fairly well. 3 coats to get totally opaque (the way I like it) and it was fairly streaky until I realized to load the brush right up. I love the small bottle size since I always feel like i waste polish as it thickens before I finish it. Nice bright pigments, I can't wait to try other shades!
So I've been on the fence about this product for a while now. I saw it at Sephora a while ago and was SO EXCITED to try it out, as I had just read an article about how awesome a mascara it was. So I brought it home and tried it out. SO unimpressed. It gave me NO volume, and not much lengthening. So it's been kicking around in my makeup bag for a while. Every so often I would give it a try again, and it still didn't impress. So today I pulled it out and decided if it didn't impress me it was going. I put on one coat and let it dry. Then, I put on a second coat, but instead of the usual swiping of the lashes I usually do, I put the wand OVER my lashes with my eye closed, and twisted the wand then pulled through my lashes. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. It applied a nice thick, long coat to my lashes, not clumpy at all, and not spidery. It definitely looks like I'm wearing false lashes and I've decided he's a keeper!
This was the first Quo product I had ever bought (waaaay back in 2001) and I have gotten SO much use out of it, and it literally has lasted me forever. Not something I use everyday, but it is a wonderful shimmer and highlight for those special occasions. I use it on my collarbones, cheekbones, and browbones. It is a very nice shimmer powder that is slightly iridescent
This is the nail polish I wear the most often. Definitely very versatile! You can wear it alone as a sheer, it looks very classy and subtle. Also you can layer it up to a more opaque baby pink, very 3 dimensional looking because of the shimmer. Also I use it over other nail polishes to give them a sheen, especially my light opaques (I especially like it over Revlon's top speed Lily)
Amazing nail polish! 2 coats and it's a perfect opaque pale lilac. Looks great! Dries quickly and is quite chip-resistant. Would definitely recommend this nail polish for all the girls out there who like the pale milky shades!
I would have to agree with the previous review, it is a very nice colour, but it took FOREVER to get a nice opaque look. 4 coats later, I have lost my patience. Good thing it dries quickly! Looks nice on paler skin tones, but I don't know that I would buy it again...
FAVOURITE EYESHADOW BY FAR! This was my first MAC purchase and since then it has been my go-to e/s, I can wear it alone for a nice day look, or incorporate it into an awesome golden brown smoky eye for night. I don't notice much fallout as some others have mentioned, but be sure to tap the brush out, it works much better that way!
Good bronzer, but go light if you are very fair like I am. Lasts forever since a little goes a long way and definitely gives a healthy and realistic glow!

Good highlighter, but I rarely use it as such since I look like a glitter ball (just like many other reviewers). Instead I use it as a subtle eyeshadow for while I'm at work. I just lightly sweep it from lashline to browbone for a bit of a lift without looking like I'm all made up (I work as a vet tech so heavy makeup is a no-no while at work). Does the job well, I only wish there was a mirror with the compact...

Nice matte shadow. As a redhead I use it as a brow filler, it has that nice auburn tone that works well for the purpose, as well as not having any sheen. Have also used as a shadow and I have to say it is a nice everyday shade. Not too flashy but a good everyday wear!
