NC44 C6 I personally find this foundation to be extremely bright and gaudy, but it can be toned down with the right lipliner. It comes off very matte on me for some reason, which I actually prefer. I have a ton of colours like this, it is very dupable for a much cheaper price.
NC 44 / C6 I love this lipstick, satins are my absolute favourite finish from MAC lipsticks. If you're a darker lady looking for a brownish, with a hint of pink, lipstick then I definitely recommend this colour! It's a natural beautiful everyday colour than can be worn ANYWHERE. In poorly lit rooms it comes out a brownie-pinkish colour but in well lit settings it's a very natural pink. My go to lip colour!!

I wanted to try a highlighter for my dull skin without any glitter. I find it very hard to find a product that actually adds a SHEEN to your skin and not anything chunky or glittery. This definitely works for me! During the day I actually apply it to my entire face (except the areas I contour) and it adds the perfect golden glow without ANY chunks of shimmer. It makes my skin look healthy and perfect, I don't notice any pink in it at all. When im going out, only to the cheeks and forehead. I notice this product does shift my foundation so I tap it in before my foundation dries and I don't need to use powder, it kind of sets it for me. *nc44 for reference
I have been using this product on and off for about two years. I absolutely love it! Nothing can compare to the clean feel, a product doesn't need to foam up to work. You skin is left feeling squeaky clean. A good moisturizer will combat the dryness! Recommend 110% For reference, I am a WOC nc44

I generally like this product on my nc45 skin although, without a balm underneath, it does come off chalky and neon/fluorescent. I have this in mat 07 and i really like it! it comes off brighter then i thought it would, so its the perfect color for going out. a beautiful peachy coral for $15.00CAD this is pricey, but well worth the money.

I love this, I have it in brown! It looks amazing, the color is extremely similar to MAC's fluidline in the brown color they have. I only purchased it recently and if it dries out in 6 months as the reviews say, it'll be worth it! I got it on sale for $11.00CAD, which is a steal up here! :)
My first ever MAC concealer! I LOVEE IT. When people say it's too thick and dry, they need to learn to warm it up on the back of their hand and pat it on, don't smear! It works wonders and it covers up my hyper-pigmentation scars beautifully. I use this around my nose as well, I don't even need foundation! I don't suggest this under the eyes, use a liquid concealer for that as this product may be a little too thick for such delicate skin. I have this in NC45 and I bought it in the winter, during the break, it is now nearing the end of summer and I can see the bottom of the plastic tray but I know that it'll last for a good 2 months. Perfect for covering acne, dark scars, tattoos, everything! Avoid the under eyes though. Love, love, love. I recommend it!

As my first foundation, I'm pleased. I've had this for about 4 months now and so I can write a proper review on it. If you have drier skin, that is dull and gray looking I would really recommend this foundation! The sparkles are a bit much for people who don't like the dewy look but it is not overly noticeable as many people have exaggerated below. The coverage is light to medium, more on the light side, which is perfect me! I also don't use this over my whole face, just along the bridge of my nose and my forehead, that's where I want to glow. I love this foundation and yes, I'm going to buy it again. It doesn't cover the hyper-pigmentation mark on the side of my forehead, but it evens everything else out quite nicely. Love it

I picked this up at a Shopper's Drug Mart near my house. On my NC45 skin, this color is amazing, it brightens up my face and adds the perfect amount of shine. A little too shiny almost, it looks lovely with my Mary Kay matte lipstick! The color lasts as any other gloss would but for $12.00CAD it looses a rating. Good job, great product, great color, lower the price in Canada!
I bought this at Shoppers Drug Mart for $8.99CAD which is a lot for a drugstore brand. I did my research before purchasing and I have to say, I love it! This formula is a rich, smooth black and it also elongates my lashes! I'm really pleased with the results, I used to borrow my cousin's Voluminous mascara and now that they came out with the Carbon Black, i'm loving it! It doesn't smudge throughout the day, I only need it on my top lashes. The ratings are so low, if you love this product, REVIEW IT. People need to know how great this mascara truly is.
