This purchase was purely bc of makeupalley reviews. It did not disappoint. I have roughly 10 red lipsticks and yet i rarely wear em (ha). I think i like the idea of them or the 'perfect red lip'. This is def the closest i have gotten to it. Its a matte formula and if applied lightly can be worn as an everyday color. Great red color.
Did nothing for me. No length, volume or separation and it was way too dry. Got this on clearance for like 1.50 at a grocery store. I can see why.
Gives great length and separation bot zero volume. I like the curved brush a lot. If I didn't love volume I would def say this is fantastic, alas, I do like volume and length so this was not for me, but it is a good mascara.
Worst packaging ever makes rating the actual product difficult. To get product out you have to shake it around and then a little comes out and you have to use the automatic brush with it which is small and scratch. Its convenient for travel and actual product isnt horrible, but the packaging is just bad. Some people here mentioned decanting it, but i do not know how. When i do use this which is rare, i use it lightly for setting and its not bad for that.
Not a fan. I feel like im using acetone around my eyes. Id rather dip a q tip in some remover or use a big fluff brush to fix mistakes. It feels like im tugging too much when i use this and hard to fix mistakes, if its eyeshadow fall out, then it removes my other make up as well and i have to re do. Not practical and it dries out quickly, so i am not a fan.
Impressed with the Joe Fresh make up line after buying a few products on a whim. The price point is excellent for the quality and packaging. These cream blush is a nice color, blends well (i use fingers) and gives a natural flush. I have the Tarte stick and i prefer this to Tarte (too pigmented harder to blend). This is a nice light color and easy to travel with. It does not stay on for hours of an 8 hr work day but holds up well enough. I am sure if i layered powder over it it would last longer, but I do not usually take that extra step.

I am pretty impressed with these. Good color pay off, stay on well, amazing price and with a good quality brush go on smooth just the same as higher end eyeshadows. I saw them on sale for $2 and bought 3. Two browns and a lavender. I have boat loads of eye-shadow but i guess i didnt realize i amazed a huge collection of es all with shimmers?! All the variances in tone and shine and intensity from MAC to UD to Mabelline to Dior.... and now, sigh, all i want is a few everyday basic matte eyeshadows; these were great find and serve their purpose- i use them daily.
It is a decent mascara but can find the same in drugstore. Not worth the money. Separates well for a defined look but there is a Revlon dupe that does same thing. Just meh.
nc35. Asked MAC associate for an everyday pinky beige, she tried this on me. Looks good and is indeed a flattering everyday neutral.

I'm an eyeliner freak, high end, low end, kohl , liquid, gel, pencil....I love a good rimmed eye, if you prefer a lighter look this may not be for you. Love this. Deepest black color. Good price. Stays on well.

I do not understand why this is so popular. I do not mind a more abrasive scrub, so that is not why i disliked it. This is just meh for me. I am Middle Eastern though and have used Moroccan mits a lot though so maybe thats why this wasn't so impressive for me?! The Salux towel lathers well.
Love this color and formula. I am on a nail polish kick lately, this has been one of my favs. Orly def beats Opi in terms of formula and the bottle (ease of use when applying), but no one can compete with OPI's variety of colors. I am not a huge Essie fan and Sally Hansen is always a good choice. Anyway, this is a "Tiffany blue" like shade. Its surprisingly versatile and i can wear it to the office in a professional setting without it looking too trendy or whacky. I always get compliments on this color. One coat can be opaque but i usually do two and a top coat. NYC minute top coat is my fav.
Its nice and moisturizing and gives a slight tint, but honestly no better or worse than your average lip balm which is why i gave it a 3.
Beautiful bright berry. Goes on smooth, stays well. A classic color i go to often.

Pricey but a nice indulgence. The smell is amazing and it is a great moisturizer. I would not use it daily unless you can afford to. Its an excellent product, and no, household Almond oil or other body oil is not the same. Something about this is nicer, smoother and more moisturizing. One lippie off for price. Makes an awesome gift.
