Makeup Brushes -MAC - 222 Tapered Blending Brush [DISCONTINUED]

This is the best brush I've ever owned. If you are looking to buy a MAC brush for your eyes, start with this one. You can use it to put a lid color on, but it's amazing at making a p.e.r.f.e.c.t crease. It does all the hard work for you! 5 full lippies for me!
This is a nice pink with purple undertones. You can put on a lot or a little to make it as dramatic as you like. Looks great with my green eyes! It's much better than pink freeze.
This is another shadow that is a waste. You barely get any of the color, and when you do its not a nice shade. Looks nice in pan, not on! I like swish better.
This is my favorite crease color. It's a dark chocolate brown with silver and gold reflects. This is one that I will keep around in my MAC collection forever or until I find one that I like better! I think it goes well with Vex.
Out of all my eyeshadows, I hate this one the most. I dont know if I got a bad one, but the formula is awful for me (which is uncommon for a frost). It's a very light grey/white shadow with an opal shimmer to it. I can barely get any on my brush and the color payoff is next to nothing! Definitly a big waste of money for me...swatch it before buying.
This is a pretty coral color. The formula is nice and smooth. It's a tad too pigmited/bright for my taste but I do wear it when I want more of a punch of color! One lippie off for that and that is why I wouldnt buy it again! I'd go for something more natural or that I could wear everyday! The thing I hate most is buying a MAC eyeshadow and barely using it, this is one of those for me.
This color has been lying in my drawer for years! I used to hate it, but I just found a new love for it (don't you love it when that happends!). I've been wearing it daily with mulch in the crease and its so pretty! My fav 3 mac shadows would be: Naked Lunch, Vex, Mulch (crease), Mylar (highlight), Nylon (for a shimmer highlight). 1 lippe off for it not catching my attention from the beginning!!
Comes off a blackish blue with blue sparkles in it. I use it as a crease color or as an eyeliner shadow. I rated it 2 lippies because it's too dark for my pale skin (a little goes along way) thats why I wount repurchase. I prefer lighter crease colors on my pale skin. This is good for the nights I want a more dramatic eye. It's darker than these pictures show.
This is an okay dark crease color. It gives off a blackish purple shade with NO shimmer (it is a matte). I use it to make a smokey look but mostly I use it as an eyeliner shadow. I'm more fair so alittle goes along way. No bad complaints, just nothing special!

I like the color, its just that its only about a shade darker than my lips, so thats why I took one lippy off. If you have paler lips than this will make a beautiful difference on you. Its more shiny than I thought it would be (since Bella's lips dont look shiny in the movie) so I matte it by dabbing MAC's era eyeshadow over it. Also it's a leaky lipstick, so you will need a lipliner to keep in from bleeding around your lips. But all in all, its a beautiful colour... perfect for a winter look. If you dont have the $$ to spend, it should be easy to find a dupe (its not sooo spectacular that you have to spend the money on it). Hope this helps someone!!
Though I wouldnt buy it again, its stilla nice polish. It's so thin that I only use it over other polishes. It gives a nice glitter sheen to my polishes. With about 3-4 coats you could wear it alone. It's a clear base with very small orange, peach, purple, silver, and pink shimmers.
This is a nice colour! Not a Christmas one, more for summer time. The red is a fruit punch like. You definitly need a top coat because it tends to go on dull... but its still lovely! One of my top favorites!
This is very pretty. A pink with gold and orange shimmer. This is very nice for summer. It's a more toned down version of "Bright Lights, Big Color"
This is a nice colour! Love the pink and red hues! I use it as a summer and winter colour!
I just got this as one of my christmas colours. It's a very nice deep red. Any OPI nail polish guru will think it's beautiful. I think it's a love it or hate it colour! I'm a lover! If you dont like the darker tone, then you would like Rosy Mistletoe-sies.
