My favourite way to use this is as an eyeshadow base. Although I've never experienced creasing with it over at least 1 year that I've owned it, for others it might be a bad idea to use it like...

Best eye shadow primer I've ever used. I think I got my first pan of this in as an extra in a swap *years* ago and didn't really know what to do with it at first. Anyway, using it as a primer was...

It's a pretty decent multytasking product I use it like a hightlighter for cheeks and inner corner eyes... The shimmer isn't very intense and the color is great for cool skin tones... I just find...

I am NC 35 for most MAC foundations. I ended up getting Shell while looking for a highlighter that wasn't as expensive as Becca. It was an impulse buying because they only had three CCBs in display...

YESSSS! I love this! I'm a shimmer fan, so this is just perfect for me. It looks lovely in natural light, like your skin is really healthy and shiny. I also have a Cream Colour Base in 'Hush', and...

I generally like MAC cream color bases, but not this one. The color is pinky beige and it doesn't really work well with my NW20/25 skin. Besides, it is the texture that I am not a fan of: instead...

This works great for highlighting on me. The pinkish/golden pearl finish is beautiful. It's versatile, I use it to highlight brow-bone, nose bridge, cheeks, and just above the cupid's bow.
