I really looove this. On days when I don't have time to create double-eyelids my eyes would look smaller and all my friends would notice... and I usually would have a crappy mood after that. haha Anyways, I find this works better than the clear one (aqua/green bottle). I think it might be because the pink one has latex in it, so it really stay put in my eyes through excessive sweating, etc. Unfortunately for me, I'm allergic to latex. So this is what I do, I would use the clear eyetalk as a base, wait till dry. And then put a coat or two of the pink one. Then I'll have long-lasting double eyelids untill I take it off without the puffy allergic eyes. Yaayyy me !
At first I was really doubtful about buying this since I'd thought liquid/ cream concealer would never give me enough coverage. I was using BB corrector prior to this and had such bad luck with MAC moisture cover. After reading all the great reviews, thought I'd give it a try since it's not expensive. Dang, this is such a great concealer ! I use this for under eye area only. never crease and settle into fine lines, unlike my BB corrector. This feels so light and great for everyday use. I don't need to pile this on. It has some brightening qualities in it, I don't know if it's the color or may be something else but it's truly light yet effective at the same time. I like this better than BB corrector. I use shade 02 for my NC25-30 skin
i really like the color of this nail polish. i've always loved my black onyx (also by OPI) but this is really a nice substitute from black. I'm around NC25-30, chinese, slightly yellow undertone and this looks great on me. i always wear it on short nails. if u like dark colors on your nails, try it. u won't regret it :)
I used to live in humid, tropic country and vaseline worked great for my lips. It's simply what i needed to make my lips stay on top condition. But last year I moved to a drier country and it happened that I moved there at the beginning of winter. At first my HG vaseline worked just fine. As the weather got colder and drier, my lips got really dry and chapped it sometimes hurt. Vaseline was no longer moisturizing enough for my lips. I panicked because my lips were never been that dry before and it looked horrible. I couldn't wear lipstick or lipgloss or anything that's pigmented on my lips because it would make the flakes even more noticeable. Then I found this at my sister's makeup bag and it healed my chapped lips. It's so moisturizing, has no smell, no color. A little goes a long way. Now this is a product I can't live without. For those of you who don't need a really moisturizing lipbalm, you can safely pass this. But if you do, like me, I definitely recommend to try this out :)
Liquid -MAC - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

I'm new to make up and I was looking for a pretty sheer foundation as I don't like heavy coverage for daytime. I got few bumps on forehead and some redness around my nose. I don't have scars, pimples.. although it's not smooth and flawless at least I don't have much problem to cover ;) so I went to MAC and the SA recommended this to me. She said the coverage was medium-builadable. It's pretty sheer depends on how you applied it. It also contains minerals in it so it's good for your skin, that's how she explained. I liked this foundation, it evens out my skin tone but you definitely need concealer for your under-eye circles. I use this this with #187 and I loveee the result. Usually after I applied this and concealer, I dusted some loose powder to set it. The downside of this is lack of staying power and sebum control. My nose gets shiny after a couple hours and in the evening I can see the foundation faded slightly. But may be this can be handled by using primer underneath. This is an OK foundation but not the best. There are many greater foundations out there. so yeah, I'm still looking for my HG foundation~
