this stuff is seriously as gentle as water. i fell on my face and had lik totally ripped up my skin. was so nervous to have to clean it and this only stung as much as the water did. amazing, truly for sensitive skin. my face still feels clean and i cud go w/o moisturizer after, very non-drying. great stuff! recommend for ppl with problemed skin!

this is not very pigmented, i hardly use them as shadows. actually ive never even used the pink one really, doesnt show up very well. the black however, is very great for girls with black hair and wants to fill their brows. its not pigmented so its very natural and its matte. i kno sometimes it looks odd, when girls with black hair fill brows using brown. not many black/grey options. this one is great. love it for the brows

wow thumbs up to this shade. i am asian and have warm skin tone. my face is a bit pinker on the cheeks, but my neck is extremely yellow toned. foundations that match my face does not match my neck and chest area at all. ive never found a foundation that is this yellow EVER! it is a exact match with my neck/chest area. flawless feline has pretty good coverage as well, i still need to conceal dark acne scars though. overall, the actual powder is good, im satisfied but most all im delighted with this extremely yellow powder. for reference i am about NC30. only sad thing is that this does not go beyond the shade naughty :/ summer im going to have to mix this in with my other powders to make it darker.
NC 30-35 warm tone. this lipstick is soo pale! it looks almost white on my lips. it does feel more smooth and buttery than other colorsensation lipsticks i have but not a good color for tanner people. if anyone has tried the porcelain pink lipstick this one is even paler than that.

one of my favorite maybelline mascara! (fav is full n soft) at first i did not like it very much. initially it was very watery and would not really hold curls because literally it was so wet my lashes would almost uncurl upon application, however after several weeks, the formula got a little thicker and now it is amazing. it keeps my curls all day and keeps them up high and super curled. it is also very black :) love it!
makeupbytiffanyd raved about this but sadly i am very disappointed! at first i thought i had a bad one but apparently lots of reviews say its clumpy and gunky and i have to agree! formulation is dry thick and clumpy makes it look like my lashes are flaking off, like small little clumps on my lashes, not attractive to look at. it is very dark but thats the only plus side i can think of. also weighs down my lashes. not a fan! i saw that some ppl compared this to maybelline soft and full but no! i dont agree! this is much thicker and not natural looking at all.
Eyeliner -Unlisted Brand - KOJI - Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner

best eye liner ive ever tried! ppl with oily lids, this is the one to get! its comparable but BETTER than the physicians formula liquid liner and the k-palette 24 hour liner physicians formula is what i use when i run out of this one, its slightly more liquidy and flakes a bit after 4-5 hours or wear k-palette smudges a bit more this one seems to work best on my oily lids, it has a super thin and firm brush that makes application super easy, its very black, it stays in place all day and is also easy to remove with some water or just a bit of makeup remover if u want it to come off even easier.

i got a limited edition one, its in like a bright/hot pink packaging instead of black and at first i was SUPER disappointed. it had like NO pigmentation whatsoever,it was like a light watery grey color! i had to apply like 7 coats really fast to get an even black color if not it would dry and not look smooth. but i kept using it b/c atleast it worked...after about 2 weeks the color intensified and the formula thickened a bit and now its black like a regular liner so now i like it a lot. compared to dolly wink, i prefer dolly wink 100% b/c w/ this k-palette one sometimes i get SLIGHT smuding to my the bottom outer corner/sides of my eyes that doesnt happen with dolly wink. but i prefer this to the physicians formula b/c that one flakes a bit

yeahh lik comment below got it at biglots for 4$ and so i bought 2 foundations and 2 bronzers. im pretty sure this broke me out like nuts. just after putting it on, it gave me an intense glowy look, not dewy, but GLOWY prolly b/c theres spf 50 in there. i wore it on a 3 day trip with nothing unusual about any other skincare product except using this on top of everything and i came back home with acne all over my face. i thought it was just b/c of the abrupt climate change but i wore it several times on top of my sunscreen for extra protection when i went running or just during a long day outside and my acne worsened. not flattering b/c of intense shine and broke me out. shouldnt have bought 2 of them. but the bronzers are very nice! i got in medium and tan, i prefer tan.
very very disappointed! i held back from buying until i noticed the mac website didnt carry it anymore and i quickly ran to the CCO and bought the pack with both viva glam gaga lipsticks. i was expecting a unique baby pink color but on my lips it just looked lik any other barbie pink lipstick i had already :/ and i got tan during summer so im not NC 35 instead of 30 and it looks kinda odd on me...wud definitely not wear this out until i lighten up a shade or two. the gaga 2 is much prettier in my opinion and im glad i got that one
dfasdfja WHYYY is this limited edition??? i wish i had bought lik 3 more while i was at it. im NC 30-35, 35 for summer which is now and it is the absolute perfect nude color. its a brown nude not a pinky or peachy nude so it doesnt wash out ppl who are tan. its boootiful! i dont consider MAC lipsticks as expensive for its high quality b/c some other lipsticks are lik 30$ so 15 is good for me and i wud def repurchase if it werent limited edition :((
since i have oily lids, any eyeliner other than liquid liner smear on me. this smeared within lik 2 hours and was all over my crease and lids from there on. it is VERY creamy and easy to work with and it is ridiculously pigmented (the black one). it gives more working time before it dries than other gel liners ive tried lik the maybelline one. but not for ppl with oily upper lids like me. however, i found that it works 100% on my bottom lash line where its not as oily. i wore it for 7 hours which included a 1 hour 6mile run where i sweated like no other and it stayed in place, no smearing. so this is definitely water and sweat proof, just not oil proof. i rec liquid liner for ppl with oily lids.
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Vanicream Sport sunscreen SPF35

i use this on my body not face, waaaay too thick for face. has zinc oxide instead of oxybenzone. super thick so it stays on well. i dont find it greasy, its like a smooth feeling on my skin. definititely makes my body feel a bit sticky after a long run but not as much as the neutrogena dry-touch sunscreens. i like :)
i havent tried that many mascaras...but i do love most maybelline ones but this one i can prolly say honestly is the most TERRIBLE mascara ive ever tried. i unno if there is some kind of technique to using the brush but the packaging is absolutely impossible for me to work with. i thought the brush was cute but obviously i now find it a huge flaw b/c one end is waaay too small, smaller than the hole in the bottle so mascara clumps on that end and gives u terribly thick yet watery (formula is watery) application. my lashes clumps together and i cant even separate with the thicker end of the wand b/c there is already so much mascara on my lashes. i wud ABSOLUTELY not buy this...apparently some ppl really like this mascara, if u found a way around this please message me ur trick so i dont have to throw this thing away
this is a true orange blush! not red orange, coral, or peachy or anything with red undertone. it is ORANGE + YELLOW = SUPER ORANGE. my skin is kinda tan and it still looks nice and i think for someone with fair skin would still be a very unique color. there had been a comparison of this and the NYX cinnamon blush that they may be possible dupes. I bought the nyx cinnamon several days ago and these two are definitely NOT dupes whatsoever. other than the fact that they may both be called "orange" the nyx one has a very obvious red undertone that makes it look like any bright coral color on my cheeks. Because this candy doll one has a strong yellow undertone, when it goes onto cheeks that are naturally pink/red, it evens out and turns a normal orange. This this is waaaay too expensive though! 16-20$ for a blush that is literally maybe 1/4 of my palm is ridiculous and the packaging could have been a little cuter. overall I am satisfied with my buy because this is a very very unique blush color especially if you live in the states. and great for spring or summer!
