I have noticed that this lipstick is not as drying as some of the others mac has released. I have very light skin and I wear it without bronzer or a tan. It's a bold look, but with a simple eye, it looks great! It lasts about a 1/2 hour before needing to be reapplied and it does not do well when paired with gloss as it seperates.

This product seemed to cake on my face, perhaps because of my skin type. I have dry patches around my nose and on my cheeks. This stuff seemed to make those spots even more pronounced. I tried using different amounts and different face primers underneath to no avail. :(
This is the WORST shampoo and conditioner I have ever used. It made my hair dull and brittle. My hair was so dry that it was difficult to brush because my hair would break and tangle. I used it for two weeks, and threw it out. Never again. (I have very thin, oily hair. So, maybe it's just not for my hair type)
I bought this mascara because of the hype associated with it. I was sorely disappointed. It clumped badly and flaked. It did seem to elongate my lashes, but the cost was huge clumps.

I love the idea of this polish. However, I find it can be hard to work with at first until you get your technique down. Everyone seems to do it differently. I do a medium coat, just one layer. Too many layers and you have a goopy mess. Again, once you get your technique down, you will find it really is a neat, funky design that definatly helps refresh a week old mani.
Great color selections and when I wear it with my seche base and my seche vite top coat, the polish lasts up to a week and a half! It does need to be shaken a lot to keep a usable consistancy and usually requires up to three coats, but the end result is just as beautiful as essie, opi, ect. And for $1, it is definatly worth the extra work for a clean finish. Will be buying whole set!
