I love this lipstick! As my first mac lipstick, I can't compare it to any others but as a overall lipstick, it's great! As it's a lustre, it has a pigmented yet moisturizing texture. It's much sheerer than most mac lipsticks so bare that in mind. I would definitely call this a mauvey-pink shade. There are tiny pink-gold flexes but this doesn't show in most lights …Read more

I hated this product. It's nothing like the rave reviewed Benetint! I thought this was going to be a very moisturizing tinted balm but it smelled horrible and tasted even worse. The color payoff was alright but I had to immediately take it off because of the gruesome taste. Will never buy this again!

I got this in the lightest shade 1, and it was still way too dark for me! Laura Mercier products seem to come in darker tones and don't suite fair skinned people well at all. The consistency was too thick so it was hard to blend under the eyes. The pigmentation was actually pretty good but I was unable to enjoy that due to the color and the texture of this product.

Love this! Especially the highlighting shade! The liquid formula is absolutely perfect but caution that if you don't blend it right away, it become glued to your face and hard to blend! The creamy bronzer is nice too though I'm not huge on the shade. Also, the cream seems to blend well but leaves a weird color on my fair skin. I guess that's just because of my shade of skin! The …Read more

I honestly don't know why I bought this. It's really useless in my collection! The sponges don't pick up the product so I have to use a brush in the pots of eyeshadow to even get any product out. It's too white and shimmery of a shade to highlight or put in the inner corner for my taste. Besides, I never put light colors in my outer corner either! In my opinion, it's an …Read more

This eyeshadow stick is very creamy and glides on super well! I use this whenever I'm doing a super dramatic look and I want my eyeshadow to pop. This does the job! It's extremely opaque and a plain white color. Because I'm so fair, I thought I could use this as a highlight. Guess that's the only thing it can't do as it was too hard to blend!

I have this color in Quince which is a semi-matte burgundy kind of shade. Since I am so fair, this is more of a wintery color on me and I occasionally use this as a cool toned bronzer! I can't wear warm toned ones. Though mine broke from dropping on the floor, I'm still able to use it. The color pay off could be more as you need to swirl your brush in it to get mega pigment. Other than …Read more

I love this shade! It's a "my lips but better" shade for sure. The gloss is very smooth and isn't sticky! It's definitely not liquidy either; it's an in between texture. In my opinion, it's very pigmented, just a muted shade. It has a lovely shine and no glitter which I love! I find that glitter looks childish on me. This is a wonderful lipgloss and I use it …Read more

I have two samples of this product and I used to use this everyday but now I don't. I loved the silkiness and how it glided on but I know it was silicone which I'm not a huge fan of. The elf dupe is cheaper but has more harmful ingredients. I have never broken out from this primer which I've heard has happened to some. I can tell that my foundation stays on a bit longer than …Read more
