This color looks like any other brown eyeshadow in the pan, but this is not a basic brown. This is a brown eyeshadow that actually brightens my brown eyes, who would have thought. It's a peachy brown with subtle shimmer. It has very quickly become a staple of mine. I've been wearing this just about everyday since I bought it.
A slight hint of pink shows up on my nc42 skin, but the gold shimmery cast is noticeable and very pretty. This is a nice blush and last all day on me. No complaints, for the price. But if this is similar to orgasm I'm glad I saved my money.
The color shows on me exactly as it looks in the tube, shimmery copper red. Love the wand brush, it's great for even application. Very pretty. I prefer this formula to the lipglass.

The MA really talked me into this one. This color looks bubble gum pink in the tube. I'm an MMM with pigmented lips and was very reluctant to even try this. Surprisingly I liked it enough to buy. It shows up on me as a clear milky pink. It's great for a natural look. I carry it in my purse, it's a color I feel safe applying without a mirror. The smell and taste are pleasant enough.

I just found this in the drugstore d/c for $1.37. Applied wet it last all day and looks great with MAC plumage. It is such a fun color.
Great product. I'm an mmm and use it as a blush. It adds a nice subtle color to my face and the shimmer is just right. Would repurchase.
I've been wanting this color for so long. But passed it over because I didn't think it would work for me. I'm so glad I finally gave in and bought it anyway. It is such a beautiful dark teal green/blue. It makes my brown eyes pop. It's great for a smokey eye look and as a liner. The color is so unique, it's the new black for me.
My lashes are naturally thick and long. Most mascaras I've tried make them look to dramatic for daytime. This stuff is great, it doesn't clump or flake and it looks natural. I prefer it to all drugstore brands I've tried. And it's cheaper than Estée Lauder More Than Mascara, which is my other favorite.
This color is very similar to Clinique glosswear in black honey, but slightly more purple. I can't say I love it because it's so identical to black honey, which is a longtime favorite, so it's not that special to me. I haven't decided which one I like better. But I woud probably purchase Desire again.

This gives me berry stained lips. The texture is tolerable, not too goopy, sticky. And it last, well, as long as you would expect a gloss to. The almost lipstick version of this color was a staple of mine since I was allowed to wear makeup. But, I think the glosswear is prettier.
This is my new favorite bronzer/blush. On me it's a peachy brown, and it doesn't turn orange. A little touch of color goes a long way. I love that it's matte, since I have oily skin. And you can't beat the price.

I've had this product for a while in bronze light. At first I was using it all over my face, under foundation. But in the lighting at work, it was way to much shimmer. I picked it up again when I was going for a nude, no makeup look. I tried it as an eyeshadow and to highlight my cheeks. When not over used, it gives a very natural something extra to me skin. For the price, being a drugstore product and having to figure out how to get it to work for me, I wouldn't buy it again.
I got a 10 day sample of this foundation. The color is the most perfect match to my skin I've ever used, III-20C. I'm so loving this product. The coverage is sheer like a tinted moisturizer, but you can build on it. It hasn't made my skin break out or look oily throughout the day. The color is so perfect and blends so well I can't even tell I'm wearing foundation. It's my skin but better. I will be buying this as soon as I can get back to the mall.
The l'oreal color match made my skin look like an oil slick by the end of the day. This is not the same stuff.
I wouldn't suggest this foundation to someone with acne or has blemishes that really need covering up.
EDIT: This foundation does not hold up on hot humid days. I end up blotting all day. I'm not changing my rating. I'll probably end up loving it again during the cooler months. And the color is so perfect.
