I first was interested in a product like this when I saw the CK one in a magazine. I looked at it on Sephora's site and it was $22 so I was still debating on it. Then when I was at Ulta today, I saw the new UD one that costs $29. It was cute, but just didn't know that I wanted to pay that much at this point. When I was at Target this afternoon, I saw this one by Milani. It was literally the ONLY one there! I saw they sold medium or light, but as I said this was only one on shelf and luckily my coloring plus it was $5.99! How can you beat that?
So you are paying for convenience obviously being that you get 4 ml of polish in a stick as opposed to 15 ml in a bottle. Target sells these for $6.49 and for $2 more you get almost 4 times the amount of polish. That being said, I do like these because they are super convenient and imo fool proof. I tend to mess up here and there when polishing, especially doing my right hand, but these were actually easier for me. I went and bought a second one today called Carpool Mama (haven't tried it yet). This particular color is a bright pink. I am not good at describing colors so I'm sorry. However, you can visit the website and play with how the colors will look on your skin: http://www.nicolebyopi.com/tryiton.html?defaultSet=nicssticks
This color caught my eye when I was getting my hair done in a beauty salon awhile ago. I don't get my nails done or do them myself often, but had to have this color when I saw it. This coral type color looks gorgeous on my NC30 (olive complexion) skin. I like wearing it when I want a pick-me-up!
I tried this today and was in a hurry to get it off of my lips. This was by far the worst of the Heatherette lippies. It makes me look dead practically. I agree about it looking like wearing concealer on my lips. Putting Bonus Beat on top of it didn't help me at all. I think my lip coloring and/or skin coloring just can't carry this off at all. Like I have said before, the glosses of this collection are all very nice, but the lippies aren't. My ranking of the lippies of the collection are Hollywood Nights is best if I had to choose, then Lollipop Loving, and this and Fleshpot. I wouldn't want the last two in my collection if someone paid me to wear them though.
I tried this on today and immediately had to get it off my lips! I was hoping it would be similar to Real Doll (which I own), but it was not at all. I do not have the right coloring to carry this off at all. I think it is funny that some people compare it to a porn look on the boards as I can see that. Like I have said before, the glosses of this collection are all very nice, but the lippies aren't. My ranking of the lippies of the collection are Hollywood Nights is best if I had to choose, then Lollipop Loving, and this and Fleshpot. I wouldn't want the last two in my collection if someone paid me to wear them though.
I love both blushes of this collection, but Hipness just a little more than FF. They are different so it is good to have both. I used to think that Fleurry was my favorite and I couldn't find anything to compare, but these two blushes are up there with it on my MAC blush list. I think the pink color is just enough, not too bright. I personally liked it more than the Sweetness bpb that just came out (I swatched that at the store). Too bad MAC keeps making these all LE.
I'm starting to think that I could care less about the lipsticks in this collection, but the glosses are pretty nice. This is another one. It isn't my favorite (Style Minx), but it is very pretty even on its own. I tried it with Melrose Mood, but I just didn't like Melrose Mood on me at all. I can tell it may be nice on girls with lighter complexions or something, but not me.

I think this is my new favorite gloss even (dare I say)! This is kind of what I was hoping "Totally It" would be from Fafi (that one is too sheer and I only kept it to use with Fun n Sexy). I love wearing this gloss alone or on top of Hollywood Nights, which I won't wear alone. I am seriously considering buying a backup of this and I don't own backups of anything!
Okay, don't hate me on this either, but I am not that impressed with this gloss. It is ok, but I like my Raquel better for something somewhat similar imo. Maybe this one just isn't right for my coloring, but there are so many other lippies and glosses that I like better. It does feel nice, not too sticky and such, but color isn't thrilling on me alone or with Lollipop Loving (which I like even less than this).
MAC site says, "Three Eye Shadows in a hot pink compact with holographic foil decal of the Heatherette logo. Features limited edition shades of Mood Ring and Hoppin’, together with Cloudburst." Someone (forgot who, sorry) had posted comparisons of this with colors that were very similar and I agree. I think Black Tied, Pink Venus and/or Playful, and Waternymph. Since I have 3 of the 4, I have decided to return this. If you don't have those colors in your stash, you should try this out, but save your money if you have those colors!
I waited awhile to get this as it didn't impress me the first few times I saw it. I bought almost all the other lippies in this collection (except that nude looking one) before this. I really do like this one on though and think I will wear it a lot, maybe even more than the others. The description below about being a coraly red or something is about what I think as well. You have to try it on to be impressed with this one though.
Don't stone me to death or anything, but I am not really impressed with this lippie. I tried it alone and it looks kinda hideous on me. I paired with Sock Hop and it just looks ok imo. I am debating on trying again to see if I change my mind or not. Thank goodness I B2M'd for this lippie. Even if I do keep it, I wouldn't repurchase it.
I B2Md for this. This is my first satin lippie and probably last as it feels so drying. I won't wear this alone, but it is gorgeous with Style Minx.
I really love this palette. I think it may be my favorite of all of the royal assets palettes I own (all but cool eyes). Sunday Best if my favorite color and I wish I had a pot of just that color in addition to this palette as I can tell that color will be gone first for me. I never really liked palettes before. I would sometimes buy one because of the hype (BB palettes mostly) but then swap away because I wasn't into them. I wont swap this one though!
I thought I wanted this, but wasn't sure so I swapped for it instead of purchasing it. I liked it when I applied it at first, but then it felt so so dry on my lips. It feels dryer and there is more glitter in this than the other two FAFI lipsticks I own. Up for swap it went. I have been given a BNIB one afterwards and up for swap it went too.
