When I used to wear M.A.C. I was an NC45 and neither the blush or the bronzer of this duo shows up on my skin. I even tried packing on the color but I believe this best suited for those with fair skin. Oh well, for only three bucks I can't be too disappointed.
I ordered both the Original and Sin from Ulta while they were 2 for $20. I was skeptical at first but my eyeshadow looks so much better with this primer underneath. My Coastal Scents shadows now have something to hold on to!
I have had this in my collection for quite some time but just really got around to using it. I love it! All you need, as with any eyeshadow, is a good base. I use M.A.C.'s groundwork paint pot. I lost one of the shadows in the palette while moving so I may purchase another one because the one I lost was such a pretty matte brown.
I've been using this since I was in the 10th grade and I am 24 years old now! I've tried other acne products but they were always to harsh or drying to my skin. I must admit that the first two months my acne got a lot worse before it got better, but I heard other reviews warning others about this so I was prepared.
This mascara dries quickly once applied. Some mascaras have a "wet" feeling to them which can be weird at times
THERE WAS NO HIGH IMPACT! I felt as though I had on clear mascara. No volume. No thickness. No lengthening. Thank goodness I didn't shell out the $24.50 for the full size. I'm so disappointed in this high end product. With every mascara I expect to have divalicious lashes and this mascara did not do that at all :(
This product is VERY lightweight. I feel as though I have nothing on my face. Another great benefit is that it dries to a matte finish. I have oily skin so this is definitely a plus! It also contains Aloe, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C & E.
You have to blend quickly because once this product dries it doesn't really move. Almond was too light for my complexion and Mocha was too dark. I blended the two but still wasn't quite satisfied. There was a slight grayish tint to my face that could be attributed to my thin layer of Milk of Magnesia that I used prior to the tinted moisturizer. To even everything out I dusted on some of my Iman's Perfect Response Oil Blotting Pressed Powder in Medium. I plan to try the moisturizer again without the Milk of Magnesia to see if this eliminates the grayish tint.
I wanted something in the coral shade for my nails this summer. I liked the color so much that I did a blog post about it. However, this was the only brand of polish I've used so far that requires 3 coats instead of the usual 2. Otherwise, the color shows up sheer.
I have never had my eyeshadows crease on me whenever I use groundwork as a base. Trust me when I say it has stood the test of time throughout the day at work. I've danced the night away at nightclubs and my eyeshadow did not bulge. Had mine for a few years and has yet to dry out. I plan to purchase the other colors.
