I'm told this color looks different of everyone and when I got a 2nd bottle as a swap extra, I realized that when the two bottles were side-by-side, they looked slightly different. One bottle was more pinky and one more mauve. This is a hard color to describe, but its a pinky/mauve shimmer/iridecent color. Not sure this would look good on everyone, but I'm the type to wear any color despite my skin tone and this has been a fav of mine for a long time.
I've never been a fan of the lighter colors, but this is simply BEAUTIFUL! The color is very light yet provides coverage with 2 coats and its a very light pink/beige with slight frost. This color would look good on anyone in my opinion and is a "must have"!

I wore this with the Hypnose waterproof mascara on my jet ski with water splashing in my face and I have to say it held up great!
This stuff is pretty great! I wore it for several hours out on my jet ski with water splashing in my face and it HELD UP very well, just a teeny bit of smudge under one eye, but barely noticable. Great product! UPDATE: I had to update this and drop it down to 3 lippies and that I will not repurchase. Yes, its still a great waterproof mascara, however, it dries out way too quickly and I had to throw out an almost full tube :(
OPI color ranges are the best and if used with a good base and top coat, they have wonderful staying power! I use many different brands of polish and seem to always reach for my OPI a lot more than the others.
This is a staple color that everyone should have! Its a very classy red for those not in the know. If used with a good base and top coat, OPIs have great staying power. If you don't have access to OPI, Orly makes a twin of this shade, Crawford's Wine.
My first tube was WONDERFUL and I thought I found my HG concealer. Like others, I have experienced the separarating of the product and its not worth anything anymore.
I'm wearing this today for the first time and I'm not liking it all that much. The coverage is not enough for me - I don't feel I should have to "layer" or "build" my foundation coverage. It seems to bring out all the imperfections in my skin (pores, dry spots, lines). Maybe my skin isn't oily enough to use this. Its only been on for about 2 1/2 hrs and so far no shine, but we'll see what the rest of the day holds. I did put powder on over it. I'll provide an update, but I think I might be returning this :( UPDATE: Yep, returning it! My face was yellow by the end of the day - very disappointed in this foundation!
The colors are great, but I just don't care for fat lip pencils so I won't be repurchasing.

I LOVE THIS SHADE! Its so versatile. It doesn't last forever, but it feels great so re-applying when needed doesn't make your lips waxy. The shade is a light mauvy pink.
I swapped for this and I'm "on the fence" so far on just how much I like it. I LOVE the color and I've used it twice so far. Both times it DID NOT last! My pretty purply eyes were a light purple after just a few hours. I even put it over a cream shadow base. Next time I'll try it alone and maybe wet. This is also my first try at UD e/s. Still looking to try others.
I agree with some of the other reviews that these colors don't last long - on their own...if you use a base, the color will have staying power. I have two colors (a green and a silverish color), the silverish one seems to be packed very light and I feel like I'm wasting it when I have all this powder residue on the compact to "blow away" when I'm done applying. UPDATE: Both of my plastic compacts broke! I changed the packaging quality to a 2 for that reason. Sucks!

I do love this stuff, but the John Frieda is cheaper, but I don't care for that silly dropper. I also have another similar product that came from Sally's Beauty Supply (from an MUA swap) and this stuff works just as good as the more expensive stuff.

When my skin is dry from the winter months - this stuff is great! I cannot use it in the summer though because my skin is combo/oily.

I agree that the packaging could be better - I have wasted this product in the past. My skin is combo/oily and I use this in Neutral and it works great for me. During the winter months I sometimes need a little more "dew" so I add some of the color rub OR I use the dewey smooth foundation on my cheeks since they get drier. This is my tried & true HG foundation.
