I purchased this after reading lots of rave reviews, but this is quickly on it's way back to sephora! The color is a very bright pink- definitely not the shade that I expected. I found it to be completely unwearble for my NC30/35 skin. It made my lips look a fake unnatural barbie-ish color. I found it also to be very very drying. Not to mention the fact that it was like drawing on my lips with magic marker- can you tell I hated it? But to each her own and obviously others love it.
Whoa... this is VERY bright! I RIS and I am so glad I got it! One side smells like coconuts and I think the other is pina colada- I don't have the box, so I don't know exactly what the scents are supposed to be. The liquid lipstick side is a very bright fushia/hot pink and the others is a light pink shimmer gloss. If the lipstick is applied lightly---VERY lightly w/the gloss over it I think it a great color! But it can be a little too much if you apply the lipstick too dark. Also, for those thinking of ordering from sephora- it really looks nothing like the swatch...the lipstick side is much pinker and brighter and not sheer. For a spark of color it's great for me; but I know others who would never wear a shade like this.
I think I am definitely falling in love with this scent! It's great for summer...a blackberry,fruity scent, but with the hint of something sweet and sugary(might be cotton candy, not sure yet though). This is scent is very unique. I haven't found anything similar at all. It's a light scent but wears very well all day long. I am so glad I finally bought it... and I will definitely be getting the 3 in 1 for this!
I received this in a swap and I am so glad that I didn't actually buy it. It's definitely not the shade for me. It reminds me exactly of lust but with a hint of glitter and shimmer; except that lust is much prettier on me. I think this is just a dirty mauve color that did not do anything for me; then again on someone else it might be different. Seemed to wash out me out-- NC30/35, black hair, brown eyes.

I absolutely love this... previous reviews were right- the darker plummy/brown side needs to be applied with a very light hand; and the shimmery nude side is great on top of it-- combined together the color is a wonderful shimmery nude/brown shade. It's great for everyday wear. I have several of these now. (had to rush out and get more) This one smells like Creme Brulee- a hint of vanilla and sugar. I love it! I think I could wear this with almost anything. I do like that the shimmery side has a brush type applicator, while the darker side is a spone! I'd definitely buy again if I ever ran out.

This product is awesome! It has so many uses--- eye shadow, highlighter, can be mixed with lotion to make skin glisten; pretty much anything you want to do with it. It's a nice shimmery/sliverish color--- I don't really notice a color as much as it just adds shimmer. A little goes a looonnng way with this. I think I'll have this container forever- and I used it almost everyday! If I ever run out though you can bet I'll buy it again... can you tell I love it?

Well...it's taken almost an entire tube of this for me to decide what I think about it. I do absolutely love the light lemon scent- it's fresh and not too overbearing. But I don't know that it's all that moisturizing. I find that it does a pretty decent job for legs and arms--but can't really get my feet as soft as other lotions. It's a fairly good lotion, but I wouldn't buy it again. I think I'd rather try something else out and see what other brands have to offer than rebuy this.

This is awesome! I have used it on my lips nightly and it's great. It keeps them nice and soft. I've also used it on my cuticles to prevent hang nails and soften them-- wonderful at that! There is a light hint of a rose scent, but not too much to be sickening and it does have a hint of pink/red color. Plus, this was sooo cheap for $6 you get a ton of product. I love it! When this one runs out, I will definitely buy it again.
I love these! There's a variety of colors- great for summer! The staying power is excellent. It is a tacky/sticky gloss that doesn't disappear easily. I have several and will continue to keep purchasing them.
I have this in light pink. I think the product itself is great- it definitely gets the job done. This can be use on lips or cheeks to create a flush. The only thing I disliked is the nailpolish applicator...it's not very useful in applying product and I'm afraid to knock it over and spill. Note- It does stain your fingertips when you apply it, so do NOT get it on clothes or anything else. Overall it was worth the $8.
This is an awesome lipgloss. I have it in Pave Pink (RIS) and I've also just ordered Diamond Drenched. The quality is good--stays for at least 4 hours. The scents are yummy and an added perk. I like that one side is a lipstick and the other is a gloss. You can create your own color that way- use each side alone or together. Great idea- but a little on the pricey side...then again it's equal to 2 glosses, so you pretty much pay the same.

This is great! There is a light rose scent and the color is a medium pink; though not much color shows when it's on. The tin is quite large- larger than most lipgloss tins...probably a little smaller than the top of a coke can. I use this on my lips at night and find that it makes them sooo soft in the morning. For $6 this is awesome! I'd even spend more money on it. The amount of product and the quality of product definitely make this worth it!
I absolutely LOVE this shade! I apply it sheer/semisheerly and it is no where near as bright as in the tube. When on, it looks like a strawberry pink--the kind you get after sucking on a red popsicle. It's a great summery color. I do apply a bit of clear gloss over it to make it a little shinier, as it doesn't apper to be super-glossy by itself. This really brightens my NC30-35 skin and makes me look lively. (Me- black hair, brown eyes)
OMG...this thing is soooo tiny! It's about the circumference of a pencil and a little over an inch! It's ity bity. I think I'll only be able to use it 3-4 times before it's all gone! Granted the packaging is cute...it's one of the only lipglosses on a chain that is actually the sponge applicator type. But it is TINY! If I had known it was this small, I wouldn't have spent the $5. I won't be buying this again, as I'd have to buy one every week if I actually used it.
Well....I have mixed feelings about this. I can't tell yet if it's going to wash me out or maybe w/a different lipliner it might look better. It's a peachy-nude; definitely can achieve that nude lip. In fact, it kinda made my lips and skin blend. I'll update once I've had time to experiment a little more with it. But I will say that I am extremely impressed with the creamy consistency..although the cardboard packaging really sucks!
