They had this launched last year only at MAC stores, and I actually have some of the softening lotion left over which is pretty bad, but it’s nice that it’s permanent and not something you have to use sparingly.

Christine, have you had an opportunity to give this stuff a shot? I have looked everywhere but it’s hardly reviewed at all. I am really interested in the line though.

I meant the fact that I still have some is bad…just fyi, I didn’t want to come across as criticizing MAC. I’m a MAC addict all the way!!! I even still have my MAC Barbie doll from last year unopened in the package. Maybe it’ll be worth something someday?

Hi Liliana – OMG you’re so funny, cuz when I read your first comment I thought you meant the lotion was bad, LOL. Then I read your correction. I have MAC Barbie too from last year – was going to auction it but never had a chance to. Maybe someday when it’s worth hundreds of dollars – that will offset all my MAC spending 🙂

The LIGHTFUL collection is an line marketed for/in Asia. It is only at locations in the US that demographically may sell if there is an asian market there. there are additional items that are not available in the us, and only asia. so some counters/mac stores will have the Lightful line, and others never will. Depends on the local market for since it is marketed for asians. =) hope that helps! you should be able to purchase it from the MAC 1-800 though! this line is fabulous and I wish they would launch it every where in the US! not just asians want that brighter younger looking skin! I want it too!!

i LOVE this line…I have extreme combination skin, oily in some areas to the point where you can see your face in my face, yet so dry it flakes in other areas…I took a sample of lightful very scepticallly and couldn’t believe how much the redness went down in one day…I woke up in the morning and was amazed to see how even my skin looked…this is a must try for anyone, its PACKED with Vit C!

Hope this helps!

sooo i’m reading this like, 2 years late LOL. which product were you talking about? lotion? essence? i have combo skin too and i really wanna try out this line! Thanks :).

I just bought the ultramoisture creme, and it is wonderful as a make-up base. It makes my skin luminous in a completely natural way and insanely soft.

i have purchased several items in this line twice and love them…i bought them at a high end cosmetic overstock store in nashville, tn…i have combination skin but this line is perfect for all skin types i think
