I like this lip gloss for its smell and texture. It is minty and smooth. It doesnt have any more staying power than others that are cheaper though, and that is why it loses a star. It loses another star because, quite frankly, it is dang expensive. If I am going to pay 25 for lip gloss , it should have gold flecks or be able to transform into something. Probably wouldnt buy, I was given this …Read more

i love this brush. Yes, you can get others cheaper, but just do yourself a favor and dont spend money trying to find a duplicate. This is the brush to have, along with the 217 and 219. I use this every day and it is excellent for packing on color without fallout. It really picks up low pigmented eye shadow and does a nice job of packing it in. get it!

This and my 217 and 239 are my go to brushes. I couldnt live without this brush. It works well for lower eye lining and the crease and v. I was talked into this brush by the counter salesewoman at MAC and I am glad she talked me into it because I use it every day. Perfect and none like it that I have found.

I bought a bunch of other brushes trying to get a cheaper brush but ended up buying the mac 217 after all. I wish I wouldnt have wasted my money on the other brushes so I could have ended up buying more mac brushes. The 217 is the best brush I own and I use it every day. It is perfect for blending and as a crease brush. It is soft, holds it shape, and feels easy in the hand. This is the one …Read more

I find this is a pretty good cheap mascara. I still like my YSL the best but it is so expensive. This does a good job of separating the lashes but it doesnt give you the volume and length of some of the higher end mascara brushes. I would purchase again - a good mascara for a great value!

This is one eyeshadow I reach for quite often. It is a beautiful rich color if you pack it on or it can be a lighter frosty color if just applied lightly. I really love the color and a little bit goes a long way. I will buy this again.

I am 41 years old so I need a product that can bring back that youthful dewey glow. This does it. I love this product and do believe it makes a difference in my skin, how long my make up lasts, and how youthful it makes my skin look.

I take away one star because of the price. I think 29 for a 4 oz bottle is over done.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. It gives me a dewey glow that people often comment about. I use it as an illuminator under my eyes and sometimes mix it into my foundation for an allover dewey look. I am 41 so anything to make my skin look youthful is much appreciated.

A little bit goes a long way so I think the price is an ok price. This will be an item that is ALWAYS in my makeup set.
