I thought this was too expensive for such a poor product. The powder was too finely milled to do much of anything, and it made my face a huge glitter bomb. It's pretty much comparable to BE Mineral Veil, and that's 20$ cheaper then this. Leave it at the counter!
I definaetly agree with below. The MAC cosmetics website does NOT give this beautiful color justice. I saw a fellow MUA'er on the FOTD board wearing this color & immediately went out to buy. This is a great color, esp. since I don't own any plum-pink colors. This reflects well on my skin tone (NW20) and it definately compliments when I'm wearing a plum shadow or trying to pull off pink/plums for an evening look. Great color :)
I love how this has a semi-blue base to it. It gives me (a NW20) a great pinky glow to my lips, My lips are generally pigmented, but this one shows up so nice that I couldn't believe it! The lipglass is really pretty with the lipstick, also alone with a nude lippie. I really like this one, especially since it's my first VG set. I cannot comment on how these compare to the others of the past though.

This is an amazing MSF. Not too glittery like others, but just perfect. I use this on top a favorite blush & it gives me a great peachy/plum glow. I really like it :) The consisitency I want to say is a little bit different then other MSFs. It seems like it's more velvety than other ones I have. I want to say this is why I like it so much :) Some of the other MAC MSFs are a little stiff & chalky, but this one doesn't have those qualities at all :) Love ♥
Love this powder. It gives a really gentle glow, easy to work with and for some reason with this powder it works super well w/Fix+ so you can't really put TOO much on. It won't allow to get cakey on your face, which I really like about this product. It makes my skin feel super soft as well, after application. Will definately purchase again. The only down side to this for a loose powder, the price is outrageous.
I had a super hard time blending this & for the price in my honest opinion, it is not worth it! The texture was chalky, even couldn't be toned down by Fix+ or a moisturizer. This left my face not covered well & big patches of color missing cause the only way you can really apply this is with your sponge. I would not recommend this product to ppl that want full coverage fdtn. If you are looking for something with less coverage & light weight feel to it, this may be the product for you.
This is a GREAT pink. So pigmented, it looks great on my skin when I'm wearing a pink blush/pink eyeshadow & I want those colors to pop. Definaetly a must have in your kit!! (NW20)

I always find this on sale & always am buying back ups! :) I have very dry flaky skin on my lips & I use this every evening before bed. I don't think there's a similar product like it, cause nothing has worked as well on this product on my lips!! The only suggestion I have for this is not to work it too much into your lips, at one point I think I really hurt my lips cause I was rubbing a little too much in one spot. Other wise this makes the lips smooth, great for a base for lipstick or balm, and smells great as well. Cheap too! Around 7.50$ for a tube, and a tube lasts awhile!!
This is a perfect peach color, exactly what I was looking for. This gives a glow like none other (NW20). I love how perfect this shade looks on my skin, no matter WHAT i'm wearing. This was a great buy & good for the summer, winter, whatever. it's just a perfect peach! :)

I'm a NW20, and I also wrote a review for LoveRock that I enjoyed as well. This color is a bit sheer, but the color that comes off of it is great! It doesn't really have peach undertones, as I thought in the beginning but it definately is a pretty light pink. I have to wear something underneath this (light a matte light pink blush) if I want to use this color, or it will be hard to show up. I don't want to use too much cause then you loose the effect of the highlight (too much highlight makes you look silly!) so I like using a base with this one. Price is steep, but I like the product a ton :) Will most definately repurchase.

I'm NW20, and I love this blush :) I also purchased Moon River & I'm enjoying each! This one is a really pretty pink, with the highlighter making it a little more suddle then such blushes as MAC Pleasantry. It really gives that nice glow. I know alot of ppl had a problem with the shimmer, but I think out of the others they released, these two had the LEAST amount & were perfect in everyway :)

The pigment to this color is unreal! And it does condition, the way it's suppose to! It's nice to finally wear a balm that lasts, conditions and has pigment all at the same time! Must-buy!

This beautiful color is great for everyday! In the package it looks a tad bit too much for someone like me *brown hair, brown eyes* but when put on, it can be worn alone or as a highlighter. Definately a great purchase and another great product created by MAC!

Ah. My HG :) I have RedHead and am purchasing Brunette. I thought I loved Redhead, but this completely overcompensated. I am a dark brown hair, dark brown eyes girl and this just makes my face look luxurious! I love the hint of pink it leaves, and it's a great highlighter on top of suddle blushes. I would definately repurchase, love having this :) I took a lippie off for the price, but there is alot of product included.
