Lipstick -Unlisted Brand - Obsessive Compulsive (OCC) Lip Tar in Anime

Fabulous product! This dries down to a matte but i dont feel it's AS drying as most matte lip product (which even if it were i wouldnt care since matte is my fave finish). Anime is a really bright bubblegum pink that looks really good on my NC 25 yellow neutral skin. I can say this is really similar to Nars Schiap but i found this one to look better on me for some reason. Anyways it comes with a lip brush that i can say is as great as my mac lip brush so it applies fantastic. Depending on how intense you want the shade you only need maybe an amount the size of a sesame seed maybe even half of that! This color is also gorgeous as a stain! It does fade when you eat but it leaves a great stain that wont embarrass you! Also it doesn't make my teeth look yellow like lots pinks tend to!
Beautiful reddened plum. Very opaque. Beware your teeth will look yellow! This color looks more pink on darker/yellow skintones and looks more purple the lighter/pinker you are. Colors very similar to this is Nars Valparaiso ( this is a cheaper alternative). I find this lipstick to feel like a modern matte at times. I use mac's plum lip liner . Looks great on my nc25 skin (neutral yellow) And i feel this color i can actually work with a neutral smoky eye and it wont look like TOO much! I do feel that if you have dark hair and dark eyes youll look a but goth but if youre not that it looks a bit more chic
Beautiful blush. Im like nc20, pale neutral yellow skin and god i love this blush. It's red with an orange undertone, not pink. So its great for the warm sistahs too. you literally tap your brush once on the blush(not back and forth) and thats enough for a cheek or even both if youre very pale. great pay off, last 6 hrs on me. easy to blend. looks really natural and looks gawjuss with red lipsticks!
I'ma be straight up, this is a normal pink blush. matte, nothing really special about except the great payoff. i didnt see any coral hint or anything its just pink. not like angelika or desire, those are bright! this is just like a plain pink youd get at a drugstore
This is what I wanted MAC Russian Red to be!! This color is like if Ruby Woo and Russian Red had a baby! lol It's matte, drying but long lasting. Doesn't transfer once it's dry. If you're a ruby woo fan you'll love this but Maneater is closer in color to Ruby Woo.
A little more orange in it than ruby woo so it looks a bit brighter in my opinion. Matte. Looks great on my nc20-nc30 skin (summer or winter) neutral yellow skin. These are best applied witha lip brush because they seem not set right wnd with too much pressure it will snap off. Overall its a beautiful red but Box might be my favorite.

Best part about this product is the packaging. Its metal and its a screw on top so it wont open in your purse! But thats where the good things end. The product smells like lemon . In 2 days it chapped my HEALTHY lips up. And made them sore. I used the rose and the clear. I had to use my burts bees to help fix the mess this did. I would never buy this not even for a dollar.
Lipstick -Besame - Enchanting Lipstick in Besame Red

This review is for the old formula and packaging: I really love this. It has a slight resemblance to MAC Ruby Woo except it isn't as matte. It smells nice. Kind of reminds me of the smell of Illamasqua Lipsticks. It glides on really nice and creamy. You can literally just tap it lightly and it gives off an opaque red color. thats how pigmented this is. It's a little drying but Balm underneath help that. It'll bleed unless you use a good lip liner. MAC cherry matches perfectly. The lipstick doesnt go all the way down in the tube so you might knick it if not careful.I love it though. Wish they were still tiny in the old formula. This lipstick is no longer tiny so you get your moneys worth I suppose. But not really since it's sheerer now and you use more product than the original formula and small tupe.
This gives you a really nice buildable flush. To me it looks exactly the way Bite of an Apple from MAC looks on me. The liquid is like a red with a coral undertone and it looks really natural. I'm medium fair with yellow skin and it looks great on me. I don't think this would show up on ladies of color because it shows up on me but after like 3 layers. Also I'm not a huge fan of the packaging! It's so easy to spill this! Ugh!
Small. Closed up its about 3 and a half inches long and when you pop the brush open it's like 4 inches. The opening doesn't close so it's kind of like a straw and dirt can get in but I just cover it with tape and it help. It's a sleek shiny black tube. The bristles of the brush are tightly packed and are in a round C shape. It's a really nice lip brush. Applies precisely and really nice
okay so i dont see anything plumy about this lipstick. In the tube it looks like a browny muted red with tiny sparkles. on your lips (mine are kinda pink) it looks like its dolce vita's cooler, frosty and pinker sister. it doesnt go on really frosty, its just enough to give your lips a highlight without looking like youre wearing glitter. It goes on my lips the color of cherry lip balm actually but its not glossy, waxy or thick. i dont need lip liner with this one (or most of nars sheer lipsticks) and it's a really pretty everyday effortless lipstick. It's discontinued now but i got my hands on it recently and it has that waxy smell that comes with NARS lippies that have brown pigment in them. At first I hated it but the smell goes away once its on your lips a few minutes and it has no taste whatsoever. it goes on nicely but not as creamy as dolce vita or damage. but this doesnt tug on your lips or anything. if you can get your hands on it. do it. I bought two as back up.
that bottom reviewer bagging on people's opinions needs a life. THEY'RE opinion. It might not suck for you but it did for others.

I love this. I had never heard of this but one day I was surfing the sephora website and came across this and saw it was five bucks. So I came to look at the reviews here to see what it was for. And of course I had to try this for myself to see if it worked cuz some people exaggerate how good a product is. I use it with my neutrogena oil free acne wash not a fancy high end one and though that helps prevent acne most of the time I never felt really clean. Or looked it. Not the case anymore thanks to this awesome little pad. It's easy to use and gentle on skin no matter how hard you rub. It feels like a massage and when I finished on the third time using this I really saw the difference in my skin. The blackheads on my nose slowly started disappearing and I felt so clean after and my skin looked so healthy. I really recommend giving this a try. It's awesome! And only $5!!! It's also hygienic since you can dry it as soon as your e done with a towel. Love this.

Looks like a coral red in the compact but when it goes on it's like a pink natural red. It's really pretty. reminds me of like that natural blush color pale little girls have.It's a beautiful blush. In my opinion a great dupe is Benefit's Benetint. Even though that one is liquid the colors are identical on me!
my new fave blush EVER. It looks SO natural and in a way sun-kissed. It's not like a fake looking pink color like most. Its a deep pink with a hint of brown that looks so gorgeous on my pale yellow skin. It's matte. and i recommend DABBING (not swiping back and forth) your brush on the blush or you'll create fall out and waste product. Also if you swipe your brush back and forth you'll grab more product than you need and when you put it on you'll end up looking burned. One or two light dabs and that ENOUGH for both cheeks. That's how great the color pay off is. I agree with the bottom reviewer. When i put this on I though "this is what blush was supposed to look like all a long!" I have acne prone combo skin and this blended very nicely on my dry/oily cheeks (half of my cheeks are oily, half dry)and I didnt break out from it. It didnt settle in my pores and made them look bigger. It lasted a good 4 hours on me. but most blushes last like 4 hrs on me. It blended out really nice and smooth. Which i'm not used too. I'd def repurchase.
