Moisturizers -Elizabeth Grant - Anti-Aging Night Time Retardant

This is one of the best night creams I have used. It absorbs into my skin and leaves it soft and supple. I sometimes tend to use a little more as my skin get super dry in the winter. It keeps my sensitive skin hydrated and non-irritated which for me is very important.
The pencil brush, IMO quite expensive for a brush but all of Mac's brushes are expensive. However, having said that it is an excellent brush for smudging e/l or e/s. It is good for highlighting the corners of the eyes, and even for general e/s application when you run out of clean brushes.

Pretty expensive for a highlighter but it seems to me that everything else I have tried for highlighting doesn't work. The pink really has no colour, perhaps a little wash if you apply tons, but it really does give a nice glow. And if you are courageous enough to try contouring with blush and then highlighting on top, gives a gorgeous effect. Expensive at $48 Cnd but I think for the effect it's worth it!
This is a fabulous colour. Unfortunately not everyone thought so and Mac re-released this as LE. It looks pretty mustardy in the container but it is an excellent colour on, for any eyecolour and any skintone. I wish they would bring this colour back, because I try not to use mine too often as I don't want to run out.
These are Elizabeth Grant lipstains/lipsticks. I bought these a while ago and returned them. They are also supposed to have torricelumn in them but they also contain a lot of alcohol and dry out my lips. I didn't like them at all and the colours were not that great in my opinion. Would not buy again.
These are serums you are to use before any other creams. I am not sure of their exact function. But it does keep my skin hydrated and non-irritated, important for me. On the bottle it says to put a small amount on the face and neck after cleansing and apply additional moisturizer if needed. She recommends 1 or 2 drops but I use more like 4 or 5. I have used these alone and they are "gel like" in consistency, they absorb quickly and leave your skin hydrated. However, I would reccomend that you add additonal moisturizer as if you live in a cold or dry environment then you will need extra moisture. But a good product for sensitive, breakout prone skin. These products have helped to stabilize my skin issues. Continue to buy.

Excellent daytime moisturizing cream! A little goes a long way. Your skin is quenched all day long. Again I have very sensitive, acne prone, dry skin, this helps to alleviate all these symptoms. When used habitually in conjunction with the AM/PM serums and the anti-aging night time retardant, these creams make your skin soft and supple.
Cleansers -Elizabeth Grant - Gentle Cleansing Milk

A very good cleanser! Gentle enough for sensitive skin and removes all make-up, for the price a definite buy. 3 bottles of 120ml for $15.99 Cnd. The only down fall is that sometimes it feels like there is a residue, it reminds me of Cetaphil, and so I like to use SSC glycolic cleanser after, however, the cleasing milk should be used in conjunction with a toning lotion.
This is a great lipglass. I will not attempt to explain its colour as I am not good at that, but let me tell you that it is very lovely by itself or with other lipglasses or lipsticks, like Razzamatazzle. Unfortunately for everyone these are both limited edition.
