Not a good product. Flakes MAJORLY!! Do not buy. Wanted to like it but nothing about this product is likeable.
This eyeliner stays on for 24 hrs +. I have semi-oily eyes and I had been on the search for product that would stay put. The only problem is that if I try to do a winged out cat eye the corners smudge a little. If you have a problems with pencils staying on give this a try and you won't be disappointed. I highly recommend it for girls with oily lids...just use a primer before.
I can't believe that nobody has commented on how this stuff smells like Lemon Pledge. The actual body cream is very moisturizing and non-greasy but the scent is horrid. I mean who wants to smell like cleaning fluid. I put this lotion on a few days ago and my office-mate asked me if that lemon lotion. Yuck...I won't be buying this again.
This color looks pretty in the pan, but had no color payoff. For it show up on my eyes I have to really dig into the pan and then I just get a hint of color. Just swatching it on my hand I had to rub my finger a few times to get it to show up. I really like the color but wish it had more pigment...way to light...very chalky. I wouldn't buy it again.
Downright amazing. If you are obsessed with purple eyeshadow you must own this. The first color top right is a pale pink that is slightly shimmery. The second color bottom right is a dark wine color that blends like a dream. The third color bottom left is a grey shimmer with a slight tint of purple..very unique color. The fourth top left shadow is a vivid true purple. The last middle color is black with silver glitter/heavy shimmer. All of the outside four colors blend like a true dream. The packaging is so very high quality. Very high end.

Awesome product to use during the summer because it's not greasy. The body gel goes on cool and it is very moisturizing! It leaves my skin so soft...like silk! It doesn't give you a sparkly sheen..which is great for everyday. The price was $5.99 for a 6.8fl oz bottle which isn't bad considering some of us pay $19.00 for a small tube of lip gloss..lol. It smells like soap which could clash with some fragrances but it's not overly heavy. Oh and this product would be great for husbands, boyfriends and sons! The packaging isnt girly..just very clean and simple!

I bought this when I was reading the InStyle magazine May09 with Jennifer Garner on the cover. There was a picture of her with her just shining and she said she used this line, so i ran out to my loca CVS to buy some. I ended up with this hair mask and I was not disappointment. I don't color my hair but I do blow dry and flat iron it daily. This mask smells amazing and it makes my hair feel like butter, and the shine is amazing. I will buy this again and again. I think I got it on sale for $7.00 so the price is right on for girls that don't want to spend a lot of money but want a incredble about of shine without weighing it down.
I should have bought this a long time ago. I love the texture..it's almost like a conceler that you left the top off for a few days..because it's a little dry which i love because I have oily eyes. If I am in a hurry I use this and line my eyes with a black pencil and use some mascara and I look totally put together. I am a NC 30 and it take any darkness/shadows away from eyes. I LOVE THIS. And I will buy another as back up!!

The picture on the MAC website doesn't really do it justice. One side is a true plum (almost looks dirty) and other side is bronzer with traces of pink and red. My favorite MAC blush by far. It wakes up my NC30 skin in a way a bronzer would. This blush will be used almost everyday this spring/summer! I use my BE feather light blush to apply it.
This is my first pigment buy. I got this at my CCO for $13.75 so it was a great price. The color is a light sparkly pink. Great for a wash of color before you use your heavier colors and it also makes a great highlighter. I can't wait to mix it with lotion this summer. It will looks great on tan skin!
This product is nothing compared to Urban Decay's 24/7 liner. After 3 hours it melted from my top lid to the bottom of my eyes..way under the waterline (where I did put it). It's really very messy. I wouldn't even waste your time with this. Get UD's 24/7 in Zero if you really want a long lasting pencil liner in classic black. Trust me I've done the leg work. I have oiler that normal eyes.

I have very oily lids so I didn't expect much from this but let me tell you when I use this my eyeliner does NOT BUDGE!!! I do use UDPP under it. I normally don't line my lower lids because it just ends up melting off in about an hour, but I thought what the heck I will try using this with it and my liner stayed on all night it didn't go anywhere! Just make sure to rinse your eyeliner brush after using this because it will make it hard as rock if you don't!! I have a feeling I will be going thru a few bottles of this! For you girls that have oily lids try this..you won't be sorry!
As far as long lasting this product really isn't. You can wear it for maybe 6 hours without it smearing or flaking off. The upside to it is that my lashes are always soft never hard and clumping. It also gives great volume and the color is a true black.
I finally bought into the hype and got this on my latest trip to MAC. Which is usually once a year because I live so far away...but anyways. This powder is unbelieveable. Usually when I put on my makeup I get oily about 2 seconds after all my hard work. Now....after dusting this powder all over my skin I no longer get greasy. It's like my skin was airbrushed. Perfect. This product does exactly what it clams too! It doesn't add any color just pure perfection! I will buy this over and over again. I need a second one for my purse because I just never want to be without this product again!!
This has the texture and smell of sunscreen. I do like sunscreen in my moisturizer but it's tooo much! It doesn't have that greasy feeling like sunscreen. It's very thick and totally white so you have to blend it in well. I love the packaging. One pump is all need! I don't think i would buy it again...maybe if I got it for 50% off.
