This flaked me out with extended use. I see results in the first few weeks but after that, it fades and the nice skin I had in the first few weeks disappeared. Also, it gave me flaky skin and I do moisturize after using this as a serum. It does smell nice though.

This gave me bumps on my forehead. And a patch of skin on my forehead became really rough looking. Thank goodness I got only a sample and didn't splurge on a full-size. I read online that the alcohol content on this product is pretty high. It did give me smooth skin before I got the bumps and rough patche. I'm sure there are better treatments out there at this price!

nice orangey peach gold that will work well on less yellow skin tones. I am NC20 for reference and this shows up a orange gold on me! It's a pretty shade but I can't pull it off. I can see it looking great on darker skin tones paired with neutrals.

I prefer this over melon pigment as melon was way too bright orange on me. I am NC20 and find wearing orange extremely unflattering on me. This looks great with patina for a neutral look. It looks great with mink and sable as well as there is a nice contrast between the peachy tone in jardin aires and the green in mink and sable and this look still look toned down enough for work. I probably will …Read more

Lovely highlighter and the only eyeshadow I got from the neo sci-fi collection. I was after expensive pink as well but decided not to since it's in the permanent collection. I got evening aura as well but returned it in the end because I just couldn't get it to work. I like femmi-fi over shades like phloof and shroom. Phloof was too white and shroom was too pinky-beige on me. I am NC20 …Read more

I see micro glitter in the pan and I decided to swap it (is it only me who see the micro glitter?). It's a really pretty color but my eyes have gotten really sensitive and I can't deal with any flakes of glitter it. It's really too bad since the color is lovely and it goes with neutrals and pinks (if you dare!). I bought one-off and it's cooler with no flakes of glitter in it.

I wanted a true yellow gold and this was a tad orangey on me. I don't mind it since I'm building my eyeshadow collection and it's a great addition to all the colors I have. It looks great with browns, greens, blues and purples. I can even see it working with oranges and pinks/reds as well. This definitely should get more use in my palette!

For a veluxe pearl, gorgeous gold doesn't have the same buttery texture of rose blanc and warming trend. It took a good base and numerous swipes of the eyeshadow before the color will show. It's not a true golden-gold but have a slight greenish sheen to it. It's still a pretty color as long as you can get the texture to work. Maybe I got a bad batch?

I went to the MAC counter asking for a brown for the crease which doesn't have any red or orange in it. The MA whipped out patina and I loved it from then on! It is a nice crease color for the fair to light skin ladies. And this goes with every single eyeshadow shade I have! It is such a multi-tasker and it's idiot-proof on me as well. Blending this was easy and it's great for …Read more

This is a LE product from MAC and it's supposed to be a taupe. It's in the likes of shades like smoke and diamonds eyeshadow and sweet sienna pigment. Personally, I find clue to be more wearable for my NC20 skin than smoke and diamonds and sweet diamond. It might be because it has a slight touch of brown in it. Clue looks great with pinks, blues and purples but I can see it going well …Read more
