Select Cover-Up doesn't cover up anything, really. The products fluid is so thin that when I apply it on my undereye circles, it doesn't really change much. It's just like applying a medium coverage foundation as your concealer. I hate the consistency! However, I really liked the low/medium coverage on my uneven skintone. You might think I'm crazy, but I'd love to use this as my foundation to even out my skintone, if only it wasn't so expensive! Sometimes, I used this on my whole eyelid (up to the browbone) to even out the skintone there and it looked fantastic. This is another multi-purpose product of MAC, but I wouldn't repurchase it. Maybe if it wasn't so expensive? =)
This is more SHITaki to me... =( I have such fair skin that even the thinnest layer of this lipstick looks HORRIBLE on me. I thought it looked lighter, almost nude, in the picture when I was ordering this. But I'm sure that this color will look lovely on tanned or darker skinned people, it's just not my color. Wouldn't buy again.

This is the perfect color for people who don't really want the in-your-face-BLACK-eyeliner. It's just a very soft dark grey color and it goes on so smooth and soft. I apply this on my waterline and it stays there all day without wearing off even a tiny bit. I also like to use this on my upper lashline as an eyeliner and then smudge it out with a smudge brush, which makes a really great smokey eye effect. It's also amazing for tightlining, because it's very pigmented. It makes your lashes look fuller bigger - better. It's amazing! And for that price it's definitely worth it!
I believe this is a LE pigment. Subtle is a shimmery light brown color with hints of grey? I can't really describe it well. It's comparable to Lancome's 'Click'. It's lovely as a base color for that basic smokey eye.
Gold mode is a sweet old-gold with lots of shimmer. It's awesome for a smokey eye with a darker color on the crease. I love using this on my whole lid, cause it makes my eyes look a little bigger. Lovely!
Very matte orangey coral color. It's perfect for spring looks, but it's a little hard to blend, no idea why. I'd buy it again though!
I know that back in 2005 or so, MAC had discountinued this shade and that people had started doing homemade kitschmas pigments, lol. but i really don't see what's so good in this pigment. I love the froty lilac color, but it's TOO shimmery. WAY too much shimmer. When I apply this on my whole lid, it makes me look like a sl**, for God's sake. So I just started using this as an eyeliner. I take an angled liner brush, dip it into this color, spray it with fix+ and apply it on my upper lashline. Looks way better =)
White pigment is a gorgeous frosty shimmery white. It's AMAZING as an inner corner color to open up the eyes or as a browbone highlighter as well. LOVE!
Shimmertime is comparable to the LE Deckchair pigment. It has a peachy pink color, but it's not as coral as Deckchair and not as intensive either, but it's very nice for highlighting the inner corner of the eye or for an all over eyeshadow! It has a lot of shimmer compared to deckchair, so when applied to the inner corner, it will make you look wide awake and open up your eyes a lot more. Would buy again^^
Gold Dusk is a yellow-ish gold. It's very shimmery and goes on very sheer on the lid. It's great as a highlight for the browbone or inner corner of the eye when applied just a little. It goes well with ANY darker or funky color, like fuchsia. I love it!
I was speechless when I first opened the jar of this pigment. It's such a metallic gorgeous dark silver color, I was really at a loss for words. I love how smooth this looks when applied on the lid. However, this silver is a little too much for me, so I just apply it wet on my upper lashes as an eyeliner. Love the effect it gives! Lovely color!
Night light is an olive kind of green with gold undertones. It's great as a crease color when applied wet, it will give you that gorgeous smokey eye. I love how this shimmers in the sunlight, it makes the gold pop out even more! Lovely color!
Copperclast reminds me so much of the Chocolate Brown pigment, just that this one is more glittery. However, it's not the ugly kind of glitter, because when applied very little, it will look amazing! BUT - there's a lot of fallout on this one, so be carefl =)
Deckchair is the most gorgeous shade of a peachy pink e/s that i own. It's so shimmery in a really cute way, it makes smaller eyes look a little bigger and it makes me look more 'awake'. Would buy again if it were in the stores :(

I love this powder! It looks gorgeous on your C-Zone, giving you that dewy look, or as a highlight on your browbone. It's also good mixed with moisturizer if you just want a little shimmer on your face. This could be used as an eyeshadow as well. Lovely product! Would def buy again!
