Love this creme base

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! Less

Beautiful

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 :)

Nude Cream Colour Base

I have used the Nude shade for probably 10 years now. I love it. Your shadows stay put and the light color of the Nude helps the pigment in the shades pop. I suggest everyone buy at least one base because it really improves the eye shadows longevity. I work 12-13 hour shifts and the shadows never crease or smudge if I use the cream colour base first.

Perfect Multitasker

The cream color base is now possibly my favorite item of Mac. The formula is creamy enough to blend out, but pigmented enough that blending doesn't make the color disappear. The color is buildable and very versatile. I can use this for both my blush and lips, and it looks like two different shades! Really the perfect product, I couldn't be more satisfied.
