I recently bought this to use as a foundation and I love it! It evens out my skin so all I have to wear with it is concealer and bronzer. It is just enough coverage and east to put on
I was so excited that I got the last one of this at Nordstrom, but I was kind of disapointed when I got home and used it. I had to swatch many times to get it to show up and it was even worse when I used my brush. I tried to pair it with My Paradise to make it stand out more and it helped, but not enough. Its just not pigmented enough for me. So sad :( still on the hunt for a coral blush. The packaging is really cute though EDIT: I tried using this blush again with a different blush and it shows up on my skin :) it looks like a light pinkish tint of color which is perfect for an every day look, I am keeping this :)

I got this as a birthday present from sephora and when I first used it I thought "wow I would never pay $22 for this". But I have been using this for a month now and I am actually starting to like it. It gives me a pretty red tint with shine on my pigmented lips which I like to because my make up look is natural. I think that when I run out I might have to actually go and buy it

I got this as a sample and I dont think I will be buying the full sized product. It doesnt give me as much coverage as I would like and it smells a little bit weird to me.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit (Rococo)

This is the first msf that I have gotten and I really like it. I use it as a highlighter but the other day I realized that I could use it as a bronzer too-with a really fluffy brush. This product makes me want to get more msf's.
I decided to get this blush because I thought that I needed a new one(I only have two including this one as of now) and I heard that it looked really good on dark skin. Well those people were right it looks great! I wear it every day and get compliments-even my mom thought it looked good and she hates that I wear make up! I would buy this again, although I dont think that I need to because there is so much product in the pan

I decided to try a tinted moisturizer when a few people at different make up counters told me that I didnt need foundation because I had a nice complextion. I went into sephora and asked for a sample of the smashbox one but wasnt satisfied because I thought I needed more coverage. I decided to get a sample of the this one and loved it as soon as I put it on. Its smells nice, its easy to rub into my skin, and its the perfect amount of coverage. Even though the darkest color is a few shades lighter than my skin tone (NW50) it looks fine. I been trying to pull off a really natural look lately and this helps me pull it off. This helps me with the "make up no make up look" lol.
I have never used an eyeshadow that wasn't from a drugstore until I used this. I finally decided to buy this because I was tired of my eyeshadow creasing by the time I got home from school and the colors not really showing up on my skin because of the pigmentation. I am happy I got this because the colors show up on my skin, they stay on there all day because of the primer, and I can create many different looks. It is worth the price

I dont really understand the point of this..maybe because of my dark skin so I just use it as a finishing powder. The way it feels wet when you put it on is cool but the packaging is horrible.
