I have patches of red on my cheeks and chin and enlarged pores on my cheeks and nose. This mask clears up everything and even doubles as a spot treatment.

I don't know if NYX should call this product a "Lip Gloss Pallet" as the packaging describes. It's more of a "Lipstick Palette" according to the ingredients <del>and Webster's dictionary</del>. Amusing alternative spelling aside, this is a good little palette for $8.00 and 7.5 grams of product. The colors are quite sheer and have a bees wax base. The …Read more

The yellow half is vibrant and pigmented and the purple half is the complete opposite. I can't even describe how awful it is. It's a pain to just get the product on a brush, much less on your eyes. It shows up thin and chalky.

I bought this realizing that my eyeshadow collection was in dire need of a shimmery turquoise. Unfortunately the pigmentation isn't that great. Mac should make this color with a satin finish instead.

I bought this in Peachy Flush. The formula is thick, not sticky and the color payoff is good. It does smell like lemon Lysol though. I like the applicator but the cap is a little funny. The plumper or irritant in the product didn't work so well for me, but I think I have built up a tolerance for some plumping agents so it might work for others.

The mica in this product is finely milled. It reflects light in just the right way and blends nicely without leaving a strong edge or greasy film.

What I like about this lipstick and MAC's matte lipsticks in general is the absence of that waxy smell and taste many highly pigmented matte lipsticks have. This is about as pure red as lipstick can get

This eyeshadow is very effective in creating matte smoky looks. I use it as eyeliner and smudge it out instead if using a blue kohl pencil. I've tried using this shadow in the crease but it can look a little ashy. The color reminds me Russian Blue in the Palace Pedigreed quad but a few shades darker.
