This is one of the two MAC items I've hit pan on: the other being Retrospeck. On my NC20, blue/grey eyes, blonde hair this combination can't be beat. It's the "I want to look FAB combination I fall back on even in the context of a formal event." Pair with more dramatic liner, etc, as the event demands...the best I've encountered even with 75+ shadows.

This is one of two things I've ever hit pan on, which is saying quite a bit. I love this shadow with Tempting on my blue-grey eyes, it's my go-to must look great shadow combination. Never never fails over several years!

This is the only sunscreen I have repurchased. I use retinoids, which cause some havoc with my skin sometimes. I can tolerate this sunscreen exceptionally well at all times and it does not cause breakouts. While the SPF isn't super high, it doesn't cause adverse effects which I adore. I can see how the tint would be troublesome for many skintones -- for my NC20 skin it's on the …Read more

I am really, really loving this foundation. NC20 in the winter, closer to NC30 in the summer: nude will be perfect in the winter, using Blonde now due to slight tan. I have combination skin which tends to get shiny as the day goes on and this wears better than most foundations I have (and I have 20). It looks fab after a 9 hour day -- some adherence to dry areas, but I'm easing into …Read more

This is good stuff. I like LSF and even Hydra Glow, but I think I like this better. My skin is dry and tends to be flaky due to retinoid use. I am also extremely acne-prone. I've used this 4 times over the past week and have not broken out. The finish is great and it lasts really well! Strangely, I wear a #4 in this as well as LSF and Hydra Glow.

Packaging bites, big time, but I really love this foundation. It offers the heavier coverage I need and looks amazing on my skin. I have purchased it in three shades, depending on the season, and have always found a good match. I don't think those with oily skin would do well with this one, but for my normal to dry/dehydrated skin it's *awesome*.

This cleanser is a really great option for flaky skin due to retinoid use -- I leave it on a minute or two a few times a week and it definitely helps with peeling and flaking but isn't too irritating for my sensitive skin.

This is a great product for irritated, dehydrated skin. After washing my face at night with a gentle cleanser I mist with Avene Thermal spray, apply Phyto Gel, mist again and apply this hydrating gel, then apply moisturizer or retinoids. This has really soothed and healed my skin -- it tolerates retinoids much better and looks great!
