Very pretty sort of pinky lilac shade of gloss. I just rediscovered this gloss while looking for something to top Mac's Bust Out lipstick off with. I really must say the 2 look amazing together. The gloss itself looks great worn alone as well. Not too bold, even leans toward the pinky nude side when worn on my pigmented lips. I have fell back in love with this shade, and now I have to make a trip to my local CCO to look for a back up. The formula is one of my favorites from Mac as well. Im not much of a sticky glitter gloss. This one is nice and creamy without any trace of glitter or sparkle. If you can still get a hold of this gloss I highly recommend it!
Really nice gloss. It sort of reminds me of Nars Giza...but with a little more punch. I love the fact that its not sticky and loaded up; with tons of glitter. Just a pretty creamy gloss. I keep back ups of these things everywhere! Car, work, purse....can't get enough. Will continue to repurchase as long as its available.
This is a pretty coral blush. Was hoping it would be very similar to Marine Life....however, its not quite. Its more chalky and more orange than Marine life. ML has a sort of silky feel, where as this seems a little more powdery. ML can lean on the coral pinky side, whereas this leans toward the coral orange side. Of course the gold portion is an overspray. And for me that sucks because that part mixed with the blush is the prettiest. Without it it's a little flat. None the less it looks great on my NC50 complexion...but I definitely wouldn't repurchase.
This is by far one of my favorite pink lipsticks! I can apply this straight from the tube, no liner, no gloss or anything, and it still looks amazing on my NC50 complexion. This is a fairly new purchase of mine, and im upset that I went through so many other Mac pink shades before finding this one. Definitely my staple pink!! Love this!!
Amazing coral shade!! I've fallen for corals this season and I must say this one is definitely in my top!! Looks pretty alone, without gloss, however I paired it with Viva Glam Cyndi gloss today and it just gave it that extra umph. Soooo pretty!
Great coral gloss. Very pretty shade for my NC50 skin. Don't know why I waited so long to purchase!! Perfect shade just in time for the spring/summer. Surprised I was actually able to still find this at my local Mac store. Thinking about purchasing a back up while they still have a couple in stock!
Blush -Rock & Republic - Contrived Pressed Blush - Bedroom

I got this blush in a recent swap and I must say this blush rocks! The shade compliments my NC50 skin very well. Its identical to one of my all time favorite Mac blushes....Pinch Me! I wish I was into R&R when these blushes were available. I would have back ups right now! If you could get a hold of this blush i'd highly recommend it!!
I love this gloss! I've been testing different shades by this brand and I must say this is one of my favorites by far (the other is Mocha Cream). The color looks amazing on me! Its a sort of a pink/rosy color. I love the formula. No glitter, not sticky, not too thick, color stands out, feels great on lips...sort of has a moisturizing affect...its definitely a great buy.
After receiving R&R Bedroom blush today from a swap I noticed something about it. It looked really familiar. Its the same exact shade as one of my all time favorite blushes...Pinch Me by MAC. This is one of my first Mac blushes ever. The only one I ever hit pan on. I was in love with this blush and steered away only to use some of my many others. Im NC50 for reference and this shade looks amazing on me! I highly recommend it. And again its an exact dupe for R&R Bedroom blush for those looking for it or needing a back up. When worn and swatched I can't even tell the difference between the 2. Love it!
I just rediscovered this blush in my make up collection. I wore it for the past few days and fell in love all over again. Its amazing! I also noticed that its extremely similar to my Nars blush in Crazed. This would be a great dupe for it. When swatched on the back of my hand they look almost identical. I say for those that are looking for Crazed...or maybe just a back up for it, definitely give this blush a try.

I love this! Im a NC50 for reference and I use SX13 as a concealer for my under eye area, SX14 mixed with Mac's F&B mixing medium, and SX15 as a contour. Its so creamy, coverage is great, and it blends like a dream! Great stuff!
I love this lipstick! The color is amazing. I was recently looking into Mac's Full speed lipstick from the Sheen supreme collection, and I heard a lot of people saying it was a dupe for Toxic Tale...which I had missed out on...or so I thought! I actually began going through my make up collection and came across a bag of MAC goodies that I didn't even know I had. Low and behold inside were Toxic Tale and Strange potion. I was super excited! Wore it the next day (pic in my profile) and I was in love! Got compliments everywhere I went. Im really into these coral sort of shades this season. I need a back up for this immediately! I'm hoping Full speed is a good dupe!
Great Kabuki! Been using it for years now, and it hasn't failed me yet! I love all of the Ecotools brushes. Some even more than my higher end brushes. This one applies my powder products flawlessly. I use it as my travel, leave in the car brush. Love it! Highly recommend!
My HG mascara!! No matter how many I try, I always end up back to this one. None have compared...high end and drugstore wise. I constantly stock up whenever there on sale. Love, love, love, this mascara!!
Powder -Rock & Republic - Exhibition Pressed Powder [DISCONTINUED]

I purchased this from Hautelook.com when they had there Rock & Republic sale on a few weeks ago. It was a great buy! Paid only $13.20 opposed to there regular $44 price. I got it in the shade Angora, which works perfectly for my NC50 skin tone. Its really lighweight, and it blends like a dream. Can be worn as a setting powder, or in my case a regular foundation powder since my face is blemish free. Even so, a little concealer on problem areas and then the powder would seal the deal. Luckily I purchased 2 because its definitely a keeper!
