Great product if you don't already have a lot of e/s. This is very basic and perfect for someone like me who rarely wears e/s. Beautiful neutral colors that can be used for a nude/shimmery look or a smoky look. I'm Asian NC25
MAC plushglass is a lip plumping gloss. After 10 sec. you feel a slight tingle. The effect isn't obvious. My lips are quite full. I don't really see a difference. tube similar to lipglass wiht a doefoot applicator. The color is VERY sheer pink - no shimmer. Well, in the tube I see shimmer, but not on the lips. It gives my medium pigmented lips a bit of color and lots of shine. Perfect for a natural looks. I like the texture and the scent which is why I bought it. Doesn't get 5 lippies because the color isn't anything special. (Asian NC25)
Love the texture of this gloss. Smooth and adheres to the lips. The color is cool/neutral beige wiht mauve undertones. It's a mix between lipstick and gloss. Perfect if you want the lipstick look for fall/winter, but is a gloss-girl by heart. I highly recommend it. There is a scent, but it isn't strong. This is the only color I like. The others are too dark for my taste. (I'm Asian LLL warm (NC25).)
I really wanted to love this blush. I just does not work on my skin tone (warm LLL Asian). Looks a little better with a bit of a sun tan - but still not great. I rate it 4 because the quality is great. Try it on before buying.
Great l/g. Wanted something shimmery for evening - but nothing over the top. This gloss fits the bill perfectly. Sheer, shimmery babypink. This is what I wanted NARS Sweet Dreams to be. Not HG though.

This is the purse perfume - a small glass bottle wiht a roll on. 0,33 fl.oz/10 mL. The scent is quite strong and long lasting, but somehow softer than the edt. There has been some confusion because this is similar to a sample of the oil. This is a perfume. Update: I use this all the time. I love that it is so easy to use. Less messy than sprays. And I think this is my favorite take on the scent compared to the EDT and the EDP spray.
Overprized...but I still love it. Great for my wavy/curley hair. I spray it on dry hair and use a little bit of brilliantine afterwards. Best saltwater product IMO. I like the scent - very descrete. Will repurchase.
This is the newest addition to Sisley glosses. Doesn't have glitter like the glossy glosses. It's has a great lip brush - the best I've tried. I have this in Golden #7. Beautiful golden gloss. Not super shiny, but sheer. Comfortable on the lips with no scent. Doesn't last very long, but the texture is so nice. Really expensive. Will try other colors.
Love the color and texture of this gloss. It's the perfect beigey pink gloss. It's sticky and long-lasting. Hate the brush and the price, but I still give it 5 because everything else is so perfect. I'm Asian NC25.

Bought this brush after reading all the great reviews. I use it for mineral fdt. and bronzer. It's very soft and really buffs the product into the skin. Expensive, but worth the prize. Update (May 2007): Still love this brush. I use it every day.

Love this scent. It's softer and sweeter than the EDT which I also own. Unfortunately it isn't as longlasting as the EDT, which is kind of strange. For evening af layer with the EDT. My boyfriend relly likes this - usually he doesn't notice fragrances. Will repurchase.
Great, slightly shimmery bronzer. Works summer and winter. I'm Asian LLL with warm undertones.

I never wear lip stick but I love this one. Color already perfectly described. I's sheer and easy to apply and looks equaelly good with pink blush and a more bronzed look. Some might not like the fig scent.
Great idea and beautiful colors - I just never reach for this lip gloss. The texture is a little too thin. Not going to repurchase.
I have this in "Smashing Tint". Looks almost neon pink in the tube, but is a sheer pink color similar to Stila's Raspberry. It has a honey scent. I'm not to keen on that, but it disappears pretty fast. They really should change that, since nobody seems to like it. I really like the stickyness of this gloss, which makes it last. Perfect color for spring. The packaging gets 5 lipsticks. But because of the scent it only gets a total of 4. Will repurchase.
