Definitely overhyped. The description made me hope for an Estee Lauder Double Wear but with more skin-like coverage. A fundamental problem to their 24-hour wear claim for combination skin is that their "sebum-controlling agents" fail to control oil after about 2 hours, giving rise to the need to blot throughout the day until the foundation is blotted away into nothing. For reference, I …Read more
I actually use this as a lip treatment under my lipstick, because it's just THAT GOOD in moisturizing my ultra sensitive, dry lips. With daily use the condition of my lips has improved and they no longer peel unless I exfoliate them. Sheer, long lasting, very comfortable to wear. UD, please never discontinue!
Emma Pickles on Youtube uses this and her skin is to die for. This is full coverage, has better oil control than even the gold standard Hourglass Immaculate or MUFE Mat Velvet, doesn't transfer and is long lasting on my uber oily skin. Shade 1W2 is a perfect match for NC25-30. Does not break out my sensitive acne-prone skin. Because it is opaque, using very little still renders a …Read more
I actually don't use this as an eyeshadow, but as a contour color due to an ingenious suggestion from the MAC MUA. It mimics the hue of a natural shadow (shadows are more greyish than brown) and looks more natural than any bronzer I have tried. Gives me superb cheekbones. Please MAC never discontinue this!
Shade 20 Clair for my NC25-30 skin. I was looking for a sheer pressed powder for touchups. This mattifies, making my skin look poreless and radiant (due to very slight sheen of the powder). I like that it is not dead matte. Luxurious packaging typical of Chanel but the puff is really lacking. Overall a very beautiful, finely-milled powder that gives me a soft-focus glow (healthy and luminous; not …Read more
Medium-fair yellow toned skin. This is the perfect contour color for me; better than bronzer which can be too orange. A matte greyish brown, this mimics the hue of natural shadows on the face and gives it more dimension. For the price and lasting quality, this will be a mainstay in my makeup bag.
This is $30 worth of magic light! My previous exposure to highlighters was via Nars Albatross, which is a powder but oddly enough, exacerbated the grease from my oily face. This one doesn't...it just remains a fresh, subtle, champagne candlelit glow that is so pretty on my cheekbones, and lasts through my mid-day blotting. This gives a nice sheen, not chunky tacky glitter. Don't use the …Read more
- good lasting power on oily skin
- good oil control
- good shade range
- not so good texture; makes my skin look a little 'grainy'
- spf makes you look chalky in pictures
- pools into patches at the end of the day in oilier parts ie. nose & forehead
I could have lived with the cons above, considering this is the most …Read more
