I thought this color was discontinued, but I found it at a grocery store while I was out of town. Woot!
I was excited to pick up this product because it is hailed as being a dupe for my beloved Clinique Black Honey. They definitely aren't dupes, but I love them both. Edgy is much more purple and therefore not as natural looking; Black Honey is better if you're going for the "no make-up make-up look" and Edgy feels more dramatic. It leans more plummy while Black Honey looks more raisin. I also find Edgy to be much more buildable, which is fantastic. It can go from giving you a nice sheer berry flush to a rather intense look similar to Revlon Va Va Violet but more toned down. I really enjoy the versatility. The product also has a grape scent that reminds me of a grape soda! It's pretty inoffensive and not all that detectable on the lips.
This is one of my most worn polishes and is a no-brainer color: one I grab when I'm not quite sure what to wear. It's perfect because it's work appropriate but still interesting. It's one of those edgy neutral polishes that I love so much. It works beautifully with my cool-toned skin tone. The mint green nail polish trend doesn't work for me - it gives me lobster hands - so this moody pistachio color is a nice alternative.
This is a sage green color that pulls more grey in some lights and more green in others. The finish is really cool and unique for my (sizable) collection. It has a neat sheen that's not super glossy... It's kind of satiny. For that reason, I prefer OPI Stranger Tides to Essie Da Bush, although they both look very similar.
I took off one star because application is not the greatest; towards the end of your manicure, the polish can get kind of gloopy regardless of what you do. But overall I love this color, as well as all the Pirates of the Caribbean colors. As a side note, if you love murky greens like this one, OPI Suzi Takes the Wheel is another great polish!
Attention to people with acne: this product may be perpetuating your skin problems. I am not acne-prone so I can't even imagine the reaction that this may give other people.
I have been using this mask on a weekly basis for a few months now, and unfortunately, it seems to have broken me out and clogged my pores. I now have several tiny pimples on my face. Even my long-term boyfriend pointed them out and was surprised to see them on my normally clear complexion. This is the only skincare product I've been using (I cleanse with water, which has given me no problems) and I haven't changed anything in my lifestyle so I have to assume the mask is the culprit. Also, I found that using this product gives my skin a burning/stinging sensation that was irritating, and I don't even have sensitive skin. All-in-all, if this works for you, that's fantastic, but if you're breaking out and not sure why, then this could be the cause.
Gorgeous taupey bronze color with silver shimmer. The finish is a metallic sheen, which I love. I hesitated to purchase this product because I have very cool tones to my skin and was concerned about orange undertones, but the color is enough on the neutral side that I think it would work on a variety of skin tones. I have hazel eyes and this is a great color to bring out the copper/gold flecks, really making my eyes pop! I wore it on a night out with no primer and by the end of the night, about six hours later, it hadn't creased and it still looked vivid even though there was minimal fading. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase and consider this to be a staple in my collection. Oh and I agree with the other commenter who mentioned that on the lid, this looks very similar to Wet N Wild's Nutty. I think this product would also work great as a base to bring out the color in other eyeshadows, or if you have an eyeliner brush, the staying power is so good that I bet it would look neat as a liner color!
I'm not going to lie, I bought this product because it's so hyped up and is considered such a staple for so many people. Well... it does absolutely nothing for me. Actually, that's not true: the only thing it did for me was dry out my skin, cause tiny little bumps on my forehead (a sign of clogged pores, perhaps?), and irritate my eyelid, causing it to be very dried out and flaky. This was a surprising occurrence because I have the opposite of acne prone skin. My skin is thankfully very clear and this is the only product that has ever irritated me so much. Well, I checked out the ingredients and Cetaphil has sodium lauryl sulfate, which is an irritant. I'd rather not wash my face with a detergent. There are also three types of parabens in it. The fact that this product is advertised as gentle and non-irritating is a bold faced lie.
The last reason why this product is a failure is that it is labeled as a cleanser when it doesn't leave my skin feeling clean at all. Just using water gives me the same effect. I want my $10 back!
HG (and that's not a term I use loosely, lol). This is by leaps and bounds my most repurchased make-up product. For many, many years I would wear no make-up at all except this eyeliner. I have tried so many different ones and this is my favorite. Don't get me wrong, it's certainly possible that higher end brands have better eyeliners, but for myself, shelling out 20 bucks on an eyeliner is something I refuse to do, especially when products like this exist. You can purchase it for about 5 bucks at Walmart.
I have tried Black, Black Brown, Brown, and Teal (I really want to try Blackberry and Cocoa!). My favorite is Black Brown, and I like using Teal when I'm in a fun mood but don't want to go too crazy with my make-up... I love it with a nice taupey eyeshadow and coral blush. Black Brown is perfect for my coloring: I have very dark features and very pale skin. Black is too harsh, and Brown is a bit too light, which can make me look washed out. With Black Brown, I'll wear it just on the top lid for a daytime look or tightline and wear a cat eye for night. I have also used it to fill in my brows, and it works wonderfully in that regard, too.
Application is easy because it's self sharpening and it lasts all day without smudging. Removal is easy if you use an oil based product... I like using jojoba oil or extra virgin olive oil.
Gorgeous brownish champagne-y rose gold color with some shimmer. I absolutely love wearing this color, and I have very cool tones to my skin. It's neutral enough that you can wear it to work, but it's also very pretty to wear out at night. The pigmentation is great, you get a generous amount of product (especially for the price--I got mine for about 3 bucks) and I even like the little sponge tip applicators you get. Love it!
I'm pretty surprised by the negative reviews. Given that they're a few years old, I wonder if Revlon has reformulated this eyeliner since then. I recently bought it so I can't speak to the complaints about it drying out, but I really love this product. It's a true teal, which I love (so annoying to see a product labeled as teal and have it turn out to just be a light blue or something). I think it looks gorgeous and very elegant, and it lasts all day for me. I love to pair it with a taupe eyeshadow.
Everything that I'd want in a mascara: darkens my lashes, makes them curlier, longer, and more voluminous. Another excellent thing is that it's VERY easy to remove, which is a huge plus!
Probably my favourite nail polish color ever. Awhile back, having been a lifelong nail biter and looking to have fun with painting my nails for the first time, this color is what got me into polish. And after exploring all different types of colors - anything from edgy neutrals to vampies to all different shades of pink and purple - I find myself going back to this time and time again! It's just the perfect mid-toned teal creme. It's a little more on the blue side than the green side. I love the name and the fact that it's part of the ecocollection. I especially like to wear it on my toes and I think it is appropriate for any season!
Blue toned dark gray. So gorgeous. One of my favorites, and I have a lot of nail polish. Great formula: you only need one coat, the brush makes a precise application quite easy, and it dries very quickly. I experienced wear at the tips after a few days. My only complaint is that there isn't a lot of sheen to this polish; the finish is more matte than glossy. I've never owned MAC Blue India, but based on the pictures of it I've seen online, I'd say that this polish is its darker, grayer sister.
I looove this color. It's a really pretty medium-to-dark taupe-y gray color with tons of very fine silver shimmers. In some lights it looks kind of perwinkle. Normally I'm not at all into sparkly things, but the shimmer makes the polish look more interesting and fun. I'd say it's a neutral but it still stands out without screaming "look at me!" After pretty much exclusively wearing vampy colors for awhile, this is a nice change. My only quibble with the polish is that it takes 3 coats in order to fully cover the nails, which can be a little cumbersome. Also it's 8 bucks, which is pretty steep for a nail polish.
First of all, this color is called Naughty, not In Naughty...minor quibble. :) As you probably know, this polish is essentially a re-release of Revlon's color Perplex, which is considered a dupe for Chanel Paradoxal. It's part of Revlon's Winter 2012 collection. I love this color. I think it's very interesting and flattering on the nails. Strangely, it's both kind of a vampy shade AND a neutral. It's a dark, dusty purple (aka "gurple") with pink shimmer. I wore it on my toes for at least a week (until removing it for another color) with no chips or fading, which is pretty impressing considering I'm a swimmer. And for 5 bucks you can't beat it!
This is my favourite lipstick. I've have tried pretty much all of Revlon's dark lipsticks (Black Cherry, Va Va Violet, Wine Not, Raisin Rage, etc. etc.) and by far I like this one the best. I'd describe it as a brownish blood red with purple undertones. With my pale skin and dark hair, it looks vampy, which I love. On darker skin tones it would look more natural (obviously). It's versatile in the sense that I can wear it full strength for a bold night time look, or blot it for a more subdued look during the day. The staying power is only so-so.

This is a lovely color! It's perfect for someone who enjoys dark nail polish but is looking for something a tad brighter than the usual almost-black shades. It has a light shimmer but is still mature looking. And it was only $1, so you can't go wrong. :)
