I thought everything about MAC is great. And this is one of the first brushes I tried from this brand. I really didn't like this brush. The hair goes everywhere around my face, not flattering experience at all. I've used several other stippling brushes who I find much more useful than this. It makes good finish, but I can achieve that with other brushes just the same.
The only thing I liked about this product is the package. Everything else is a mess! I bought this in 1.0 black and when applying, I felt like applying dry paste - not pleasant at all! After conditioning and washing hair after I was left with dry, brittle hair even though I used masks as I regulary do. I didn't even could comb my hair!!! I pulled so much of hair out doing this. I will never ever buy this product again! I bought it just because it said there are oils in it so I assumed its great hair color for dry hair but I was so wrong! This left my hair matte, dull, dry, brittle!!!
I can't believe this product has such a low rating here! I was even wondering whether to buy it or not, because I was reading all these negative comments. Well, I find product very useful and very GREAT in deed. If you apply the fibers with caution after first layer of mascara and you keep your eyes closed in the seconds of applying this product and still keep it closed when applying second layer of mascara, there's no way that fibers could enter into the eye area. I also don't find it messy, and applying it was done in couple of seconds. I also didn't notice fibers all over my face cause I've done applying face-down to the mirror, as I always do applying also dusty, sparkly and shimmery things. My eyelashes are glamourously long and thick with this product. If you apply it with caution you gain really nice lashes with almost no effort :) I suggest you give the product second chance, cause it's really great product I enjoy using and I already finished 2 bottles.
Another wonderful product from Murad! I use it before going to bed as night treatment. I love the packaging, its pump; the product itself is of pretty runny consistency, but you can easy apply it all over face with 1 pump press. The smell is usual as treatments with salicylic acid have, nothing too harsh. I like the feeling on the skin after applying this, skin immediately looks even smoother and more polished! Over time you can notice great improvement on overall skin appearance; I've noticed smaller pores, more even skintone and healthy glow. All 5 lippies from me and this product deserves even more!
Lovely true red color, that really suits my fair yellow-undertone complexion. I also love non-drying effect of this lipstick. The main cause I don't use lipsticks so much is that some (even HE) can be pretty drying and I don't feel comfortable with it on the lips, that's why in general I prefer glosses. But this is different. It stays on for a long time and with small touch ups you can make it stay on all through the day.
Treatments (Eye) -Murad - Resurgence Renewing Eye Cream

This is one of the best eye area creams I ever tried! I really didn't find any negative things to say about this product, because this is just awesome. I like it's texture, it goes on smoothly; it hydrates well and leaves your skin silky. It also doesn't irritate my eyes as many other eye treatments do. I like everything about this product and I've tried almost anything out there (also La Prairie cellular, etc).
Wonderful loose powder thad doesn't set into the pores. I love the color (I have it in 02 beige clair, light with yellow undertone) and it's perfect match. It doesn't give you that "over-powdery" look like many other loose powders when applied, but matt and dewy at the same time. I'm inlove with this product, highly recommended!
Concealers -Artdeco - Camouflage Cream (any color)

The best concealer I've ever used! The quality & the finish are magnificent, I really couldn't achieve better results with any other concealer out there! I have this in two shades, light yellow and medium beige. I use this for highlighting and contouring.The only negative thing: a bit drying. But this doesn't bother my combination skin much :) All 5 lippies from me!
Hair Color -L'Oreal - Preference Shine Extending Hair Color

This is my HOLY GRAIL hair color. I color my hair jet black, so I pick #1.0 Naples. I love the shine it gives to the every single hair - literally, and this shine lasts til the date of next coloring (I have problem maintaining shine of my hair since it's naturally curly and very dry), so this product makes it perfect and soooo glossy! I also love the big tube of conditioner, so you can use it every week and extend the shine of your hair, just perfect! The only one negative caracteristic of this hair color is smell, which is pretty sharp, but everything else outweights this. I'm really in love with this product! :)
I adore lemon juice. I use it every second week or so, for lightening any blemish area and for better looking complexion. I put fresh squeezed lemon juice on my face or mix it with natural clay and put in on the face. The effect is silky, bright and fresh looking complexion! One of the best natural remedies for great skin!
Powder -Chanel - poudre universelle libre(natural finish loose powder)

The greatest loose powder ever! I love it's consistency, application and finish - all of this make it the best loose powder out there for me! I have it in #20 Clair and it makes wonderful complexion. Highly recommended!
This is the best foundation I ever used! YSL foundations are just like "made for me" and I never use anything else than this (I've used Teint Mat Purete before this). I bought Teint Resist in colors #4 and #7, since #7 was slightly too dark for me at this time and will keep it for summer. It goes on beautifully, no mask effect, oil free and non-drying! It gives natural efect, mat and yet glowy. Its just the perfect foundation for me (I am combo with occasional breakouts). Pure love!
I use honey especially in winter times as lip moisturizer. It really does a brilliant job!
This is great stuff for acne-prone skin. When I have this little tiny bumps on my face I use aspirin mask to calm the situation and overdry the bumps. It really makes skin more soft&cleansed, but you mustn't use this too often, cause it can overdry your skin.
After huge raves I decided to see on my own what incredible miracle is this super-expensive liquid foundation. I have this in #1 Ivory. When applying, I use approx 3 pumps to blend the product perfectly on my face. The coverage is light to medium. However, my skin is not oily, but combination - but with this I start to shine after couple of hours or so. I also don't find its finish so incredible...it seems so me like any other similar matte liquid foundation I've used before and wasn't so expensive like this (perhaps, I find Chanel mat lumiere much better). Well, it's good product, but I guess I won't buy this again.
