MAC just never goes far enough for me. I'm relatively new to MAC (five years) so I don't have that affinity that many seem to, not having grown up with the brand and perhaps using it exclusively at first. If they say matte, it's not matte enough. Long wear, not long wearing enough, relative to other brands and their claims / performance. This and the MAC Refined Zone are very similar. Very low oil control, very low at prolonging wear, very low at pore filling (Via matte. They don't claim pore filling.) This is very basic in formulation and thus, very basic in function. I couldn't find a noticeable difference, side by side with a control after a few hours. May be beneficial in that this is fast drying and can be applied over makeup more easily, but for the money, just blot and powder.

This is my holy grail mascara. I have long lashes, which look hideous in the wrong mascara. This mascara gives long lashes a beautiful and finely separated look, gives the impression of even longer lashes, doesn't uncurl pre-curled lashes and doesn't smudge or wear off throughout the day. People regularly ask me how I get my lashes to look like they do and assume I've had some fancy treatment, but it's only down to some time spent curling my lashes before putting this product on them.The only drawback is the price for the quantity of product. For me, this mascara doesn't last that long, but I have found a solution. What I do is I add a DROP of contact lenses fluid every 2 weeks or so after it starts to go on a bit scantily, which not only restores this this product to its former glory but also dramatically extends its life. Before I found this tip, I had searched high and low for something that gives the same effect as this mascara but at a lower price point and was unable to find it.

I'm clearly the minority here but I'm disappointed with Vintage Selection. It looked wonderful in the store and thought that this pale glistening creamy eyeshadow would be my go-to look for springtime for soft everyday glam paired with bright lipstick and blush. The consistency is indeed great but the shimmer is much chunkier than I expected and unevenly distributed. I enjoy shimmery eyeshadows - the most recent I bought, Caviar Stick in Moonlight by Laura Mercier is incredibly sparkly but applies like an even veil of high shine while Vintage Selection looks like chunks of glitter thrown here and there. Maybe my teenage niece will have fun with it...

The quality of this paintpot is great (beautifully creamy, nice coverage, easy to apply, covers discolorations and stays put without creasing) but with my fair warm-ish skin and green eyes it's hugely unflattering; makes me look dull and tired in a split second. I loved the color when swatched and the consistency but definitely doesn't work for me. Even as a base it makes eyeshadows added on top look ugly. Call me bitterly disappointed.

I think this boils down to personal preference but it was just too pigmented for a face product. I know everyone looooooves super pigmented items, but I find them artificial, hard to control and usually patchy. Not something I loved for me, or my kit. Shame, because it’s a beautiful colour!

Honestly, this is the urban decay naked skin concealer in a squeeze tube. I loved that one for a long time because it was a medium coverage, enough to cover but not some much you get the mask effect like some *cough cough shape tape* give you. Worth every penny, lasts forever, and is simple and easy.

If I could give this negative stars I would. I always trust these reviews and often end up baffled by all the positive reviews. That was definitely the case with this product. I would do a PROS/CONS list, but there were no PROS. This product is horrible for the following reasons...- Completely un-natural looking- No coverage- Goes on uneven- Rubs off on anything/everything. Don't touch your face!- Settles into fine lines and makes you look oldThis is one of the worst foundations I've ever bought. I'd rather buy a $10 drugstore foundation than this.

This paint pot is great to be worn on its own, but I wished it looked darker on my lids, it always looks a little brighter than it looks on the pot. Overall, its a lovely metallic brown wich giver depth to eyeshadows put on top of it. Has a bice texture too, creamy! It lasts all day long without primer on me.

I love this paint pot! As a lot o people already said above, it is Mac amber lights in cream shadow formula. It is a beautifull pure gold tone, very subtle, it looks great on the lids of its own, but also looks amazing if you top it with neutral eyeshadows like woodwinked, sumptuous olive, twinks, goldmine and more... I personally like to layer it with the mac personalities palette, mischief minx tones. Women with warm complexions look great wearing indianwood!

I had high hopes after reading great reviews especially for ladies with light olive skin like mine. Let me tell you, I am returning this. It just looks like mud on me. I tried different brushes, a lighter hand, a heavier hand. It was just eww. Like I didn't know how to pick or use blush. I tried Mocha. That is gorgeous, heaven. I think there is something in the undertone that didn't go with my Latina light olive slightly yellow undertone skin.

Why buy Cle de Peau Radiant when you can buy this and get same effect. Full stop.
Like CDP, coverage is light to medium. Skin shows through. But like the more on trend look, use a good concealer strategically throughout face to achieve that no makeup look. Agree skin needs to be decent but not perfect.
For mature skin or that youthful glow, this is a winner. Like huge. Didn’t accentuate pores and gave me an incredible glow when paired with a radiant primer.
Mac please don’t discontinue 🙏🏻

I bought this while looking for a subtle cream eyeshadow for no-makeup look. It does crease on the eyelids so I try to apply lightly and avoid the crease. Looks gorgeous on the brow bone, Cupid's bow, and on cheekbones with or without blush. I love the cream-gel texture. It lasts through the day. The golden peach shade is universally flattering. I put it on three friends (pale redhead, brunette and Native American with mature skin). It looked great on all three.

Been wearing this lipliner off and on for months it has a great nude color of just outlining the lips or as a nude color. I wear this with a light shimmer lipstick and it works great my only complaint is you really need the sharpener as it needs to be sharpened a lot more than my other pencils.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
