I love this product. I've been using it for almost 2 years now and still have so much product left and it's still as creamy as the day I received it. I was sent this because of a mistake with my order but I find that when I run out, I will definitely repurchase it. I like this product and Blacktrack equally but seeing as how there is more product in Chromaline, I'd probably repurchase it more so than Blacktrack. Haven't tried using it as a base but love it as an eyeliner, stays on the entire day without fading.
This is an exact match for my skintone NC20. Great for blending as pointed out by many, but I find it does the exact thing as an Annabelle shadow I have called Vanilla Chilla. Those in Canada can easily find it, and it can be as cheap as $2 when on sale.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Vintage Selection (Cham-Pale Collection)

I like the color and it's pretty and sparkly but that's an effect I can easily achieve with any eyeshadow of similar color. I found that there is a little fallout with this paint pot. I'll keep and use it but I really don't think this one is worth buying.
Love this pencil. Doesn't smudge, gives a very subtle effect on the waterline, lasts all day without having to retouch. It does take a little more effort to remove though compared to other eyeliners i've tried.
On my NC20 lids, Prance is like the lighter version of Style Snob from the Starflash collection. I'm not exactly a fan of Style Snob but Prance I really like. It was very pigmented and applies super smoothly. It's subtle enough for work and gives my eyes a wide awake look. I'm not sure I'd repurchase since it's quite large and would probably last me quite awhile.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #165 Contouring Brush [DISCONTINUED]

Bought the 165 from a CCO and had it since October last year. I use it every time I put on makeup, for highlighting, contouring, blush, powder...this brush is perfect. I don't believe mine has ever shedded yet. Highly recommended.
Right now I'm about NC25 and this is the perfect shade for me. As a contour it is very subtle but it makes a huge difference. The highlight sort of shows up on me, but it is wonderful to use to blend with. It feels extremely smooth and seeing as how much product there is, I doubt I'll run out anytime soon. I saw this at the CCO a few months ago and wasn't that interested then, but if there is a need to repurchase, I'll definitely check the CCO in the future.
I just bought a back-up today even though I still have quite a bit left of my existing one. I only use this on my waterline so I don't go through this product very quickly. Compared to every other pencil I've tried on the waterline, this is the blackest and most pigmented of all. Blacker than smoulder, engraved, graphblack, blacktrack, UD zero, etc......... Since this product seems to be repromoted every few years, I hope it'll be brought back since I don't want to get too many back-up.
I love love LOVE this primer. I've used Shiseido and MAC lash primers and while they're ok, IMO, the Clinique one outperforms both in holding a curl and lengthening. The Shiseido one was so difficult to remove and the brush didn't feel that great. The MAC primer was ok but the brush was quite big and after awhile, the formula got quite goopy and seemed to weigh down my lashes. The brush is a nice medium size and the formula feels very light. I will definitely repurchase.
Never thought I'd hit pan with this eyeshadow since I had it for about a year and half. Got it at the CCO, and for a few months, I barely used it because it was very close to my skintone and hardly showed up. But now, I use it regularly to help blend out harsh lines around the outer corner and in the crease and am very happy with this eyeshadow :) The last time I was at a CCO it was still there, so check it out :)
Eye Shadow -MAC - Mineralize Eyeshadow in Engaging

I was sent this to me by mistake, but they let me keep it. I don't think I would've bought this but I actually like it. I like swirling my 224 or 217 with both colors and it's a nice neutral peachy taupey shade for the lid and crease. I quite like it. The pink is also nice as a highlight or in the inner corner. Overall it's nice to have but it's listed as 23.50 cdn and that's simply too much for this particularly mac eyeshadow.
This is a very pigmented blue-green polish, 2 coats and it's very opaque. It's pretty, but I love putting You Don't Know Jacques over it, and it turned it into a lovely khaki green. Very pretty but would probably not repurchase.

I love love love this brush. It is the perfect fit for my crease and perfect for creating the outer-v and blending. It hasn't shed yet so hopefully it never will :)
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 224 Tapered Blending (Windshield Wiper) Brush
plushbear84 7/16/2009 2:05:00 AM
I found this at a CCO for $19 something. This is not a must-have but does a wonderful job blending and for applying concealer. This is also great for applying an all-over wash on the lids, but it's too big for applying color into my crease. Overall, it's a nice brush to have.
I've had this brush for over 2 years and I don't think it has ever shed a hair. However, this is not a must-have but a nice brush to pack eyeshadow on the lid.
