I absolutely love this color. I have been looking for a nude that doesn't look concealer like and isn't to pink or peach and this is it. This is a beautiful nude color and is a satin so the staying power is really good. I have several, several MAC lippies and this is really one of my favorites. NW 25 and have somewhat pigmented lips. Will definitely re-purchase.
I cannot believe MAC has discontinued these Mattene's. I love them. This is a gorgeous red. (and I usually do not wear reds.) It is not pinky or orangy but just a beautiful shade of red that would look great on any skin tone. The Mattene's are not drying like some of the other MAC finishes. This stays put for hours after applying. If you like a hot pink but not OTT pink (and can find one), Immodest in the Mattene is gorgeous too!!
The Mac SA kinda swayed me towards this when I really wanted Viva Glam II. I was right. This is kinda blah on me. Almost the same color as my own lips and really does nothing. I can see this looking good on some however. It's a lustre for one so staying power isn't great. It is kind of a pinky nude, almost frosty on me. If you have pigmented lips I don't think this is a great one for you. I am glad though that proceeds go to charity.
Nars lipsticks are hit and miss with me and this one is no exception. It is a sheer pink and not really noticable on me. I don't hate it but I don't see myself reaching for it that often. I think it would look really good on someone with a pale complexion an lightly pigmented lips. Would not purchase again but I can see how some would like it.
This is one of the most gorgeous lipsticks. A beautiful pink, magenta. Glides on easily with no slip and stays on forever! Not drying like other mattes but really creamy. I love the mattene packaging and formula. Wish MAC still had it! I think this could work for all skin tones. Just beautiful!!
First I must say I never really wear red lipsticks but I got this for a change of pace. I am really pleased. This is called a "brown red" but you do not notice any real "brown" in it. It is a darker red that is hard to describe but really beautiful. Not "over the top bright red" but a wearable shade for work etc. This has no pink or orange tones as many reds do. I think any skin tone could wear it. Great staying power and no slip. A really great red.
I absolutely love this powder! It is a beautiful highlighter/contour. Not shimmery like some highlighters. I can use it over my foundation and it gives lovely glow.

I really love this haircolor. I use Golden Blonde. This is very gentle on your hair and leaves it feeling so soft and healthy. Great at covering gray also.
This is such an elegant polish, just beautiful. A perfect Tiffany blue. A must have for any nail polish collection. This color will certainly get you compliments.
I love this lip liner. I have a few of the MAC lip liners and always seem to reach for this one. It is a very versitile color. I use is with Angel as well as Brave and Myth as well as other colors. It seems to go with everything.
On me this is more of a deep pink not at all purple. It is also a sheer color. Although the color is beautiful I found this lipstick to feel very waxy and have a slight waxy smell. Since this is sheer you have to reapply several times. I like a creamier lipstick so I probably will not purchase again. Although I do like the color, I do not like the texture or smell.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Summer Tan

I wasn't sure if I would like this but I did. It is a beautiful color that looks brown in the pot but gives a beautiful flush of tan color to the cheeks. Also, it works really well on the lips too. This feels more like a lipstick than a gloss which I like. It is not drying at all and does not have a greasy feel like other brands. I plan on purchasing this in Pale Pink also.
This is a nice light lavender with grey undertones. I am brown eyed but I think that this would look great on all eye colors or skin tones. This is a soft feminine color that can be worn with anything. I had to order this from MAC as my stores did not carry it. Will purchase again.
If you are looking for full coverage this is a good make-up. If you do not need full coverage then do not spend the $42.00. I really do not need this much coverage and although it is a good foundation I do not think it is worth the high price. I do not plan on re-purchasing.
This is a lovely nude color. If you are looking for a nude lipstick that is not too pink or peach this is it. This is a perfect nude.
