I have found my HG for concealers!!!! I use it for underneath my eyes, I have MS & with all the meds and horrible genetics (thanks DAD) and as long as I moisturize very well underneath the eyes it really does a job that is on par with that of MUFE, Shu, Dior, Ect. I have a little way of doing it that seems to help with the thickness that some people have had issues with. 1. Moisturize the hell under your eyes 2. Warm a SMALL dot between your 2 ring fringers & tap under the eyes. I like to do this and then use a concealer brush to make sure I get all the way to the lash line. I add more where needed..... somedays alot more... 3. I use a pop of Clairins flash balm for the eyes over it once it has set. I really, really, really LOVE this stuff. I wish they had it when I was a makeup artist!! To make things even better when we went out last night even though I was having a relapse, I had a 25 y/o man hit on me & could NOT BELEAVE I was about to be 35!! People could not fathom that I had MS, much less was in the middle of a relapse I looked so well rested & healthy!!! Ladies rush out and get some of this and I really hope they increase the colors for our all our lovely ladies!!
I got what I think is a new verson of this, it comes in a tube and is only 6 oz. My hubby grabbed this by accident instead of my regular and I'm glad he did. The shade is Deep and the color is a nice warm brown on me. I'll update this when I see how it wears down the road. But so far so good!!
Bronzers -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish - So Ceylon [DISCONTINUED]

Totally love this bronzer/highlighter This gives me the best bronzy shade without turning me Paris Hilton orange. It's very layerable and I love it as a shadow as well. It's pretty since instead of a golden or orangy tone, it has a reddish pink to it and silver veins of shimmer. I defenitly recomend this to everyone!!
I am soooo in love with this shadow!! It's a really unique green/yellow with pretty silverly shimmer in it. I find it's best to use this over the Fresh Cream eye kohl for maximum color payoff and shimmer. Looks gorg on it's own or mixed with green or bronze colors. I bought a back up just cause I love this one so much!!
Blush -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish - Porcelain Pink

I really love this. I wish MAC would keep there Skinfinish products in the line since they are such a wonderfull product!! I love using this with the 190 brush and misted with Fix+ over the cheekbones when I wear pink/peach blushes. The other day I wore this over Ladyblush blush creme and had a million peeps asking me how I got that fresh glow. This also looks really pretty over pink shadows like anglecake and sushi flower. Try this with the 190/Fix + technique for super glow!!
I really like this glittery goo!! The way to apply it is to pat it onto the skin with a talkon brush, if you rub it, your asking for a mess. it gives a nice sparkle to the skin and will be alot of fun for the holidays! Like I said, pat pat pat, no brush stroking or rubbing. If you do it this way your inner glitter pixie will love you forever!!! This one is a nice shimmery gold, interesting texture as well!!
This is the newest pigment from MAC I find it a bit silkier than some of the other pigments, it goes on smooth and shiney. It's a deep charcoly blue that makes a hot smokey eye! If Deep Truth and Stroke of Midnight had a love child this would be it!! Except it would be a shinier lovechild! Looks great NW20 /BLack Hair/Blue eyes
This shade reminds me of a butterfly wing with it's golden green irridecence. So pretty and almost feels creamy. The pigment is fabulous in these shadows and I can't wait to get all of them!! NC25/Black hair/Blue eyes
I"m a red lipstick junkie and just love this new collection!! This is a beautifull blue/cherry based red which is very flattering and classic without being too bright. Stay's nicely and just looks fab!!
I have this in the full size and love it!! It makes my lashes look amazing!! For those who had the trial size, pick up the full size and see the difference. I apply with the spooly end first and the go over with the flat brush end. Really makes my lashes stand out, all nice black and glossy!!
This is a truely rocken product!! I love it over bronzers and other tawny shades. It gives the skin a really sexy glow and also makes a nice shadow when wanting a no makeup look to the skin. I love to apply with the foundation brush misted with Fix + for an added glow A very unique and hot product from MAC

I used this at the event we had for MAC and let me tell you this is so lovely. It gives such a pretty pink pearlecent glow on the skin and just looks lovely. I like to apply it with the foundation brush misted with fix plus. I love the glow it gives me and is super sexy. Looks great with pinky and peachy blushes and shadows. I love it to death and you get a ton of it!! what more can you ask for!!

reminds me of why I love being a girl!!! I love this smell and ended up buying the body wash and lotion to match!!!I have fine hair and it leaves my hair soft and shiney without weighing it down. Can't really comment on the price since I work for a salon systems store and get it for wholesale!!

I love this conditioner!!! It totally doesn't weigh down my fine (but I have a ton of it) heat, dye and bleach ravaged hair. The hubby likes it for it's ruby red grapefruit scent. An all around winner in our house!
I love this shampoo so much!!! I got it from the company to try and it is really nice. I love the lather and the fact it doesn't weigh my hair down. I don't smell lavender, me and the hubby think it smells like ruby red grapefruit!
