One word: AMAZING!!!! This product really does live up to it's hype. it's easy to apply, versatile and very natural looking. You can build it up if you want more of a dramatic look. This product is great as a cheek highlight but it can also be used on your brow, cupids bow, nose etc. A little goes a long way so I can tell this product will last me a long time. I've now order it in Iced Gold as well.
After having worn Colorstay, Studio Fix Fluid and Double wear for years this foundation is a refreshing change! I am normally nw15 in mac foundations however nc15 matched my skin fine in this foundation and blends in well. The coverage is perfect and it does not have a heavy feel unlike studio fix fluid! I set it with blot powder in medium, however it dries very well so I think you could probably skip setting it if you wanted to. The bottle comes with a pump so no need to purchase one seperately or waste product trying to pour it out (one of my major gripes about Colorstay!) I have yet to test how long this foundation lasts but I have a feeling it will live up to its name.
I LOVE, LOVE LOVE concealer!!! This is without a doubt my HG concealer. Coverage is perfect, price is reasonable and it lasts all day, what more could you want out of a concealer?
This mascara seems to take forever to dry! Sometimes i'll put it on and then a few hours later I notice black smudges underneath by eyes and on my brow bone. I will not be repurchasing.
This blush is a lovely bronzey/neutral blusher. I wear it on days where I don't want too much colour on my cheeks and want a more natural look. I can see this lasting a long time as you only need a small amount.
This foundation is exactly like Mac Studio Fix Fluid....it's VERY heavy feeling on the skin. It was perfect when I used to be a flight attendant as it literally lasted all day but now I'm training to be a nurse I want something a bit more light feeling on my skin. I would recommend this to people who want a long lasting, matte, heavy coverage foundation. A little goes a long way and if you buy a Mac foundation pump it fits on to the bottle which solves the problem of having to pour the foundation out.
I have very pigmented lips and I find that this just does not look quite right. It is however one of the nicest nudes I have found and if you don't have very pigmented lips I sure it would look lovely. I also found that as my lips are very dry this lipstick accentuated that!
Blush -MAC - Sheertone Shimmer blush in Peachykeen

This was the first ever Mac blush that I purchased back in 2007 and i'm still in love with it and have hit the pan. This colour is just perfect! It's inbetween a coral, peach and pink and looks gorgeous!
I have had this blush since 2007 and have not even made a dent in it yet despite the frequency that I use it! This is a perfect pink blush for a pop of colour on the cheeks. It would suit anyone from the fairest of skintones to the darkest. I would buy this again should I ever run out which I highly doubt!
Great coverage foundation which lasts all day. Price in the UK is very similar to Mac foundations so not overly great value for money! A lot of product is wasted due to lack of a pump. It also has a very strong smell which you do get used to. Overall this is a foundation that I use very often and would purchase again.
This foundation is very sticky and never felt like it set properly, even with powder over it. Other than that coverage is average and it has a dewy finish. I will not be purchasing this foundation again.
This blush is not peach at all. It is very similar to Dame, a dusty pink colour. I find this blush very boring and I don't reach for it that often other than when i'm going for a no make up kind of day!
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

Not much to say other than that this is the PERFECT highlighter.
one word....STUNNING! This is one of my favourite lipsticks. I normally wear it when I am going out in the evening. It's hard to describe but it is a purpley/pinky colour with a hint of a gold sheen. I have never found any other lipsticks like it.
Gorgeous pinky/purpley colour. I've had this for a couple of years now and have hardly made a dent in it. If you're far-medium skinned you only need a tiny bit for a pop of colour.
