the palest nude lipstick i have, its a little bit too pale for me so i use it to lighten up other lipsticks or to make other lipsticks less drying as its a very creamy lipstick so its perfect for that.
this is practically the same colour as the gilded white pencil from the same collection by mac (surf baby) its a great tear duct highlighter and it also looks nice on the lid with mascara for a bright simple eye look.
its a golden white colour, its a lovely tear duct highlighter and it also looks nice on the bottom lash line.
i was expecting this to be lovely, its not, its straight up orange on my pale skin, i ordered it on line here in england 2 weeks ago, i tried it twice and both times it was very patchy on my skin. its not a unique colour like mac marine life or ripe peach its just orange, im pretty sure if you have peaches or melba you just dont need this, i have many mac blushes which i love and this is the only one ever regretted buying. i will swatch before buying in future.
Lip Treatments -Blistex - DCT for lips - Daily Conditioning Treatment SPF 20

this is the worst lipbalm i have ever tried, i got it because of a recommendation from a make up channel. i wish i hadnt, i hate the smell, medical, like a hospital would smell. i hate the feel on my lips, drying, and i also hate the strong tingling sensation it gives. this has gone straight in the bin. i have just put my finger on what it smells of, the antiseptic cream called germolene.
my favourite mac lipstick so far, reminds my of nyx black label lipstick in india, very drying though so you will need a balm over or under it.
im on the fence about this highlighter, maybe i would have loved it if i hadnt bought the too chic beauty powder by mac and fell in love. chez chez lame is a nice gold colour but it isnt very pigmented in my opinion. im used to msfs and the payoff they give when you swipe your brush over them but with this one you dont get much product on your brush. i do like this and wouldnt return it, although i dont like the crinkley pattern, it reminds me of under my eyes ha ha.
i absolutely love this beauty powder which i am using as a highlighter, i have by candlelight highlighter by mac and didnt think that could be beaten but too chic has just pipped it to the post, it gives a beautiful glow to the cheeks without that nasty white ice look to the cheeks that you sometimes get with highlighters. i think i would be suitable for all skin tones, im very pale for reference nc15 although im much more like a nc10 if they did that shade.
this is called a blusher but even on my very pale skin this is a highlighter. it gives a nice creamy glow to the skin and im happy with the product, i couldnt decide out of all the recent mac collections which highlighter to buy so i bought three, chez chez lame from cham pale, gana from mickey contractor and too chic from stylishly yours, i have loads of blushers but hardly any highlighters so thats how i justified buying three. my fave is the too chic then gana then chez chez lame.
i love this lipstick, i have lots and lots of lipsticks that i wouldnt buy again but for sure im getting a back upof this, i thought it would be like ever hip or jazzed but its much more gorgeous and the texture is creamy and fab. its a lovely soft coraly pinky colour. i personally hate pinks that have a blue tone to them, but this is so natural looking i love it, i put foundation on my lips to get the true colour and it is now my favourite mac lippy, myth is now number two.
Blush -MAC - My Highland Honey (A Tartan Tale Holiday '10)
holly222 11/4/2010 4:42:00 PM
i absolutely hate this blusher, i have around 30 mac blushes and love each and every one, but this one is awful, i have pale skin NC15, i applied this over double wear foundation and it looked a dirty yellow colour, thats the only way to describe it, it looks peach in the pan but it has the most unflattering yellow tone to it. i will never use this blusher again in my life, i have marine life, hipness, ripe peach instant chic, so why i thought i needed this i have no idea, i could kick myself for buying what i thought was another peach blusher.
this was the only product out of mac vv range that i liked. its a nice pale gold colour, goes on a treat and is a great lid colour for a natural look, you could also use as a highlighter and inner corner shadow. the packaging is sadly naff with a cruella de vil head floating about on the lid.
Lipstick -MAC - Innocence, Beware! (Venomous Villains)

i bought this thinking it was going to be really something special, its not, in the tube it looks gorgeous but on my lips it kind of goes lilac which sounds daft i know, much prefer myth, it lasts on the lips more than 5 seconds which innocence beware doesnt. really disappointed with this one, actually ordered 2 because of the hype but sent the one i didnt use back.
Blush -MAC - Matte Blush - Bite Of An Apple (Venomous Villains)
holly222 10/7/2010 7:07:00 AM
seriously if you have ripe peach, hipness, marine life or instant chic you do not need to buy this blush as i cant tell the difference between them and i have them all (complete waste of money to have them all i know) bite of an apple is the one i actually like least because its matte and i hate matte.
i only bought a sample of this, its a pale gold nude, nothing special i found, a medium colour really not pale like vanilla etc so easily works as a lid colour rather than a highlighter.
