This is the first and only product I have from MAC. Since I have a beauty you tube, I found myself always searching reviews about this product and since I didn't know alot from MAC at the time, I thought it was limited edition and I always had a strange anxiety to buy it. The lady at my local MAC store (Plaza las Americas, PR) was a rude little beyotch. (Excuse my language). Mine came with a poor amount of gold veining. I do have to admit that this product is very pricey and alot of you know the dropping a MSF nightmare, since the MSF's are baked. I love the packaging, I always love MAC packaging because it's so simple yet classy. Mine came with a small dome which made me mad because mine came with not so much amount of product, considering that I payed $29 + tax, ect. I use this as a highlighter, this product is fairly pigmented and it does have chunky-ish glitter. It's very shimmery aswell. It works amazing as a highlighter but it can get ridiculously shimmery sometimes. Overall, I would buy this again regarding the fact that it is very pricey.

When I went to Walgreen's to get a picture taken for something, I went into the beauty aisle and saw this so I decided to buy it. I got the shade Light/Medium, because it was the only shade that was available at the moment, good thing that it was my shade tho. It cost me $13.00, the price for an overall drugstore foundation/product is somehow pricey. I have combination skin and the formula seems to be somewhat oily, so I just set this with my Almay TLC Powder or my Rimmel Stay Matte and i'm good to go. The packaging overall is fantastic & I love it because since it's a squeeze-tube, you can use almost all of the product in the package and not let product go to waste. The promises that this product gives in my opinion is somewhat false. It feels very greasy if you don't set it with a powder, it smells really nice, I did see somewhat an improvement in my skin when it comes to discoloration and the fine lines under my eyes. But it was a very small and almost unnoticeable improvement. I do have to admit, for $13 you DO get alot of product and a little of this product goes a very long way. I would buy this again but I would NOT recommend this for people that have acne prone or oily skin.
I went into ULTA looking for a new concealer, since I had no high-end ones and I really wanted one that could cover my Koala-like under-eye dark circles. The lady put it on me and I loved it, I bought it in the shade 2 which is Medium. It covers my dark circles perfectly and it also brightens up my eyes. I use it with my finger instead of a brush, because I tend to struggle more with a brush. The packaging is cute, but since I use my finger, I find it unsanitary, I really wish this came in a squeezy-tube form. It's pricey, for a concealer. But I would repurchase this. This is my go-to concealer. I absolutely love it more than any MAC concealer. And it's my everyday concealer and I already hit pan on it.
