Best for warm or darker or tanned skin. Gives a lovely golden peach glow on cheekbones, brow bones, anywhere you highlight. Best w/ warm or neutral makeup (for cool toned skin or makeup, try Benefit's silvery pink High Beam). The bottle has a nail polish like brush. A little goes a long way: only a few dots, then blend w/ fingers or foundation or concealer brush.

They come in a wide range of colors & formulas, from dense & opaque to light & sheer. Besides many permanent shades, MAC adds & subtracts limited edition colors every month or so. Theyre not supermoist, but definitely not drying, & those i use stay well without reapplication because theyre highly pigmented. MAC is my favorite lipstick brand!

Cream OK, Pods Disaster
I read good reviews (not here, tho :) & gave 'em a try. Sponge & packaging painful & wasteful. I tore off the sponge & squeezed cream onto my fingers. One pod does BOTH eyes above & below THREE nites! Cream feels nice, but it's not working any miracles.

Ozone: Clear, Colorles, Prevents Feathering
Never been happy w/lip pencils before. Got this on a whim. And am i glad! I like 'interesting' lip colors, but I'm over 60 & just got my first vertical lip line! Run this lightweight, clear, colorless liner around lip line, apply lip color on lips, & even intense colors behave! It is quite soft, so don't press too hard. Needs a sharpener to maintain - UD makes a good one.

100% Feel Good
Moisturizing & soothing. I use above & below my sensitive eyes & on my cheeks (caffeine is good for rosacea). No fake perfume, scent like vanilla cake is entirely from high quality natural ingredients, many organically grown. I use @ night & on days when i wear only liner & mascara.

Great Drugstore Eyeshadow Set
I stopped wearing makeup & started again w/DS brands. 10 Sunbaked Neutrals is a beautiful combo of copper, bronze, matte & frost taupes, matte browns, & frosty greens. Not as intense as Urban Decay, but a perfect color combo for many looks, day & night, in 1 small convenient pkg.

Applied easily enough, washed off after 10 or 15 minutes as directed. Ugh! The modest brown was red violet. It only became right after several weeks of washing. And definitely did NOT cover my limited grey hairs. I am never buying this lousy product again.

Decent Foundation, Great Product Line
I wore no foundation for decades, but now i have rosacea on my cheeks & discolored patches on my jaw. While this doesn't hide them, it minimizes them, is easy to apply, goes on very lightly & evenly, & doesn't irritate or suffocate my skin. However, if i build coverage on dark spots, it gets caky & accents fine lines & pores. And i can't apply after moisturizing+sunscreen (its SPF 15 isn't enough) or it's one hot mess. Still, i'm happy with it, & purchased BE eye shadows - they're great! And blush & bronzer work fabulously.

Super Superglass vs. Dazzleglass
Funtabulous is a Dazzleglass (i have it & Sugarrimmed). But this listing is for Superglass. MAC makes so many "glasses" it's easy to confuse them. Dazzleglass has uniform pearls. Superglass has reflective particles of multiple sizes (i have Tunnel of Love & Sweet Tart). Unfortunately it's being phased out, still available on-line, but nearly gone from my local shop.

Wonderful Razzle Dazzle!
I LOVE this stuff. I have it in several colors, from intense purple Funtabulous to delicate pale Sugarrimmed. Color payoff is great for a gloss and i love the variety of sparkles and shimmers Not crazy for vanilla scent, but it isn't too strong. It's a bit sticky, like most glosses, and lasts longer than drugstore brands i've tried.
