The only pigmented, smooth and creamy color is the white brow bone shade. The other three are powdery and chalky and have a sheer color payoff. Even with a primer this does not last. The packaging is a thin plastic that if dropped will definitely break. Never getting this again.

in mac im an nc37 and I have this in fresh beige 70. I love this stuff. First of all after use this makes my skin look better and feel softer. It has a satin finish on my skin and has light to medium coverage. It can be heavy if you put another layer. At 11.99 you can't really go wrong. The only downside is the pour bottle which is super messy and wastes a lot of product. I only use …Read more

The shadows in the darkest and middle section are pigmented and easy to blend while the lightest for are chalky and very sheer. The main thing I hate is the major fallout. One swipe with a brush and product gets every where. I have to dust off the palette after each use. The thin bars of color are difficult to get to without a pencil brush. Also the extended strip that is a snap closure …Read more

This is the best highlighter. It is smooth and not gritty. Unlike shell it has no glitter just shimmer. It's easy to blend and apply, but I feel it needs to be reapplied through the day, because it doesn't last.I would buy this again but I don't know if I'll have to for a while since it seems to last long.

This is my third bottle. I love the color. It's a dark deep red with shimmer in the light. I feel like the red shimmer only shows when the light shines. Otherwise it is just dark brown almost black. It covers with just one coat and lasts with a top coat for about two weeks.

Pros: cheap, pigmented, easy to apply and blend, smooth
Cons: creases like crazy, can't put eyeliner on after using this, the eyeliner slips right off. when you sharpen it the wood gets dirty.

Bottomline: I wouldn't buy this again and at least I don't feel bad for throwing it out because it was so cheap.

the cream color base in shell makes you look like a glittery pink christmas ball. Pearl has shimmer and no glitter, I'm sticking to that color and returning this. Pearl was out at three different mac stores I went to so the lady suggested shell. Horrible suggestion...

This is the best foundation for my skin. It lasts all day when set with my bare minerals mineral veil. I also moisturize and then put the smashbox photofinish primer. It is easy to blend with a flat foundation brush, I use a mac 109. The consistency is thick and not runny. You get 1fl oz for $38 USD. The pump on it is easy to control and as the product is finished the bottom comes up, which …Read more

I got a sample, so I couldn't tell you how well the pump works, but the fact that it has a locking pump and not a cap is already a plus. The price of this is $29.50. I was given the color nc35 at the mac store. At first I really like the way it looked when I put it on with a mac 190 brush. Even when I set it with powder the dewy finish was still there. The foundation looked great even …Read more
