Ok, I bought dusk for a contour shade and it's honestly perfect it blends so easily and gives just enough color to keep me sculpted without looking blotchy or orange.

don't let the color put you off
SHADE NAMEVintage Rose
Tags +Creamy, great color, subtle
When I received this, I nearly sent it back. The Vintage Rose color looks like an odd orangey, terra cotta pink color. On my monitor, it looked like a pale pink rose shade. I have very pale skin so 'no way' was the first thing that came to mind. Not so. I blended it carefully into my foundation and was pleasantly surprised. The color looks very natural. It reminds me of how you look after a brisk walk outside. If you are going for drama (I don't) the coverage with this product is buildable. I used a small amount and was OK with that. At first, the product does not appear to be picking up, but it does. That's hard to describe, but there you are. Great product that is easy to use. I would definitely recommend a blender sponge to use with it.

I got this in my Enchanted Eve face pallet, and oh my god. It's the most magical thing ever. I use it as a highlight/blush/eyeshadow-base. It has the absolute perfect shimmer. It's so easy to blend. I've even put it on my lips once and it looked great. When I run out of what came in my pallet, I'm definitely going to buy more, and maybe try other shades as well.

Love dusk and always come back to it for my everyday eye shadow. I get lured away by others but nothing can compare. It gives my aging eyelids a wonderful depth and pop without looking garish. There is a little shine which doesn't over power. It looks almost natural and is very easy to apply with my fingertip. Hope this shade never gets discontinued!

FOR THOSE OF YOU GOING FOR THAT NATURAL PEACHY GLOW, "HUSH" IS THE COLOR FOR YOU!
THIS BLUSH JUST SUITS MY WARM OLIVE SKIN TONE SO WELL. THE FORMULA IS SO SMOOTH, EASY TO BLEND, AND IT'S NOT STICKY LIKE OTHER CREAM BLUSHES!
IT'S SO LUMINOUS, SO PERFECT! EVERYTIME I WEAR THIS COLOR I GET COMPLIMENTS. STRONGLY RECOMMEND!

I bought this online, on a wing and a prayer that it would be great for highlighting .... well, after using it just once (I just got it in the mail yesterday) I am in HEAVEN! Such an easy product to apply with your fingertips, and gives the perfect glimmer to highlight too; compliments the Strobe Cream perfect too! I also used it as a base for my eyeshadow and WOW! I am so in LOVE!

Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing
I love this product. I live is a very steamy place - Savannah and all my eye shadows cake and leave lines. So a Mac rep suggested I try this on my eyelids - what a score!!!
I use it on my cheeks as a highlight and just below my brow line and use the copper one over my lids.Even on my lips when I want a day look!
I always get compliments when I have it on how fresh I look.
And is perfect to take to the beach for a quick refresh before heading to the bar.
Great at night to make my eyes pop - I know it is for cheeks but Mac you made a winner here!

Cream Colour Base Pearl
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable, face and body
As I have oily skin and love matte foundations, I was looking for a product to add dimension to my face without being dewy/greasy. I have a few other big brand highlighters, which are wonderful, but contain too much shimmer for daytime wear. I purchased Pearl based on lovely online photos and Youtube videos. When I received the product, I was surprised by how small the product actually is, and was beginning to regret my purchase -- especially after I swatched it and noticed obvious shimmer. However, when I tapped some (okay, maybe a lot) on the top of my cheeks and down my nose bridge, and blended it out with a damp Beauty Blender sponge, it imparted such a beautiful natural glow and sheen without shimmer, that I was completely sold.
The best part is that it does not make my skin look dewy or oily -- it adds a bit of dimension to the face to keep matte foundations from looking too flat. I have medium-tan skin that tans very easily (NC40-NC43), and the color looks extremely natural on my skin tone, despite seeming like an icy white/golden color in the pan. I have seen it used on the eyelids and body, but for now I simply relegate it to my cheeks and nose; though I may try other methods during the summer.
My advice, though, is that if you are seeking a noticeable, yet subtle glow, build up coverage and blend it out vigorously with a blending sponge.

Pearl Cream Color Base
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant, Highlighting
I have the cream color base in Pearl and it is amazing. I really debated between Luna and Pearl. I ended up going with Pearl because it was more beige where Luna was more white. I use this for Highlighting on the cheeks, cupid's bow and underneath the eyebrows. This is so versatile you can use it sheer or build it up and its never cakey. I love using this for conturing you can also use a powder on top of it as well. The finish is truly pearlescent and not glittery/sparkly like a lot of highlighters out there. Its a must have for me.

Got this in improper copper and just purchased this in nude. Blends so nicely and gives you that dewy glow with out the clump and gives you the control of how much or little that you want to use. Very easy to work with love it.! Please keep making these and make more shades!

Love this creme base
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant, everyday
Just received this. Wanted Shell, but read about Hush. Very glad I got this. It is a bit hard at first but your fingers warm it up. It's very light and sheer on the skin, and as I had read, blending is everything. It's real dewy alone, and it really helps hold blush and it seems like you don't need as much blush, and you still retain the glow with blush on top. I will be using this alone and with blush. Ii's a very light peachy/gold and not overdone. You don't need a whole lot. It really does a great job as a highlighter and glow. I am over 55 and wanted something soft, which this is. I do need at least a sheer foundation on first, but it works great for a light not over done look. You can also build it to make more pronounced. I love it and will still order Shell when it's back in stock. Just the perfect glow! This will also be great in the winter when dry skin comes back for a perfect glow. It is NOT sticky either, which I have a few creme blushes that your hair sticks to. This is also a perfect multi purpose. Great on lips! This is a 5 star!

Pearl Highlight
Tags +Highly pigmented
I love pearl highlight! I use it on my cheekbones, browbones and cupids bow. I gave 4 out of 5 simply because it is harder to blend but by dabbing it lightly onto your face you can avoid looking a bit too highlighted and crazy! Pearl is a beautiful shade too!

Best eyeshadow out there
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable, Crease resistant, all day wear, warm colors
Nothing compares for me and I have tried many, many eye shadows. Mac is the only brand eye shadow that I can count on for the entire day without it disappearing. When I want to carry it over into the evening I apply a paint pot (painterly) and it lasts forever, Love, love, love!

Beautiful
Tags +Bold Color, Blendable, Highly pigmented, Luminous, Long wearing
The color Luna is a perfect for someone who wants a more neutral highlight--it doesn't lean yellow, pink, or beige. I've been loving it both as a cheekbone and inner corner highlight. It's very pigmented, and gives the most beautiful, luminous glow to the face without looking greasy, shiny, or oily at all. It's also extremely easy to apply--with either a brush or your fingers. Even though it is a cream product, it's SUPER easy to blend and lasts all day without fading or smearing. This is definitely my new favorite highlighter :)

Luma Cream Colour Base
Tags +Blendable
The Luma colour base is very smooth. I use it to highlight when contouring. It comes off very smooth and really ties things together. I use brush 168 with this product for an airbrushed effect. I was searching for a product that wasn't too pigmented and wasn't too obvious. for me, this product is exactly that. Hope this helps ;)

Amazing Highlighter
Tags +Highly pigmented, Blendable
I just recently went all out at the mac counter. i have only had a few mac products before so i decided to go out and splurge on an entire make up collection including foundation, concealer blushes and bronzers. I saw this as i was checking out and picked it up with out trying it. BEST DECISION EVER! this is probably my favorite piece of make up that i own its beautiful. i cant even begin to tell you how many compliments i get on a daily basis on how glow-y my skin looks. it gives it that perfect amount of shine with out making it look oily. its super dewy and i will be buying this for the rest of my life i can promise you that mac!
