i am asian, and with my summer tan my medium skin tone looks amazing when i use the coral blush.. it is pretty shimmery though, but it absolutely compliments my skin. it is also very pigmented, so not much is needed and it will probably last me forever. the bronzer is perfect as well if you don't mind the shimmer. i do not use the brush though, as i prefer my fuller angle brush to apply these. regardless of that, i personally love this kit.
my hairdresser used this on me and i fell in love with the scent. it's so fresh and i just couldn't keep myself from smelling my hair. i ended up buying the huge litre bottles of both the shampoo & conditioner, and realized about a week after that my hair no longer felt soft... it was dry, and felt a bit stiff... i have long, thick, sleek, shiney, straight asian hair. i haven't dyed it in god knows how long, nor do i blowdry it every day. there should be no reason for my hair feeling anything but soft and healthy. it is considered a men's shampoo, so i don't know if that makes a difference, but i will not be rebuying.
okay. this brow kit was an absolute splurge, and i still have no idea why i let myself spend the amount that i did (i cant remember exactly how much it was now since i bought this OVER 3 years ago) ... it has lasted FOREVER. i use it almost everyday.. or at least 3 days of the week, and i've barely made a dent in the powders. the three shades give you a lot of breathing room as to how dark/defined you want your brows to be. the powders most definitely give a more natural look to your eyebrows in comparison to a pencil. i love the kit, but this is the first eyebrow powder kit i've ever used or tried, and when this runs out (if ever it runs out), i'll probably try out other powders before i rebuy this.. just for my wallet's sake.
i had this for about 2 weeks, and i absolutely hated it. in fact, i hate all mac liquid foundations. in my experience they are horrible. they look and feel chalky on my face. also, any dry skin on your face will be accentuated. it was terrible. furthermore it made me break out... and my skin is not prone to breakouts whatsoever. absolutely terrible.

love it! really good coverage, and with the finishing power, my skin looks flawless. it is costly though, so it is definitely not an everyday use kind of thing. love it, but for the cost i am trying to find something else not quite as pricey. send me a message if you have any recommendations :)

as much as i love the cleansing portion (liquid facial soap) and the exfoliating portion (the clarifying lotion/toner), i cannot stand this moisturizer. it feels so sticky on my skin and doesn't seem to absorb as much as it should. i've squeezing out less from the tube, though that doesn't seem to help at all either. i wouldn't buy it again.
a bit of a strong smell, but love the tingly feel of it. it removes the residue from my face. i have dry-combiniation skin, and love #2 for my skin. i also bought #1 for the winter months when my skin gets dry and chapped, but i do not like formula #1 at all. i use #2 throughout the year now.
i have combination-dry skin, so i tend to only use studio fix in the summertime when my face gets a little oilier. studio fix keeps it looking matte and feeling light (liquid foundation feels much too heavy in the summer), as well as it has good coverage. i have bought several over the last few years, mostly just to match different skin tones as i tan throughout the summer.
hair looks shiny & healthy, smells incredible. love it & recommend it!
