While I agree that this is a lovely sheer red, I wouldn't describe it as pink red. On me (PPP) it is a sheer brick red. It blends beautifully with MAC brick lipliner. As a matter of fact, MAC recommends this as a replacement color for their discontinued red brick lipstick.
I've been using this pencil in soft brown for at least five years. It deposits just enough color for a natural look. The trick is to sharpen it every time you use it and to apply with short, light strokes. I don't use many drug store products, but this is one I come back to again and again.
This looks frightingly flourescent pink in the tube. I mean it looks like a Crayola crayon in "flourescent pink." But when worn it is the most subtle sheer shade of bright pink. I wear it on days when I want a just bit of color.
This is a gorgeous bright pink. It looks a little scary in the pan, but is much sheerer when worn. I use it with bare canvas as a base, paradisco as a wash, sushi flower in the crease to form an outer lid "V", dabble paint as eyeliner and either vanilla or pink opal pigment as a highlighter. It's so pretty.
This is hands down the best lip balm I've ever used. As a California girl, I'm not used to harsh winters. However, my job schedule gives me 7 weeks off every winter so I do a lot of travelling and usually to places with a lot of snow and wind. This is the only lipbalm that guarrantees that I won't have cracked and bleeding lips. I use it year round. I slather it on right before bedtime. It keeps my lips so soft.
I bought this pigment after much hemming and hawing. I am so glad that I did. It's a gorgeous dark gunmetal grey with a bit of shimmer. Wear it with Amber Lights in the crease and you get the most beautiful pewter and dark copper eye.
Just got this shade today. I love it. It really makes my green eyes pop. I'd describe the shade as a light terra cotta or a deep bronzed peach. There is a tiny bit of shimmer. Not intense like Stilife, just enough to pick up light and add a bit of luminescence to the eye. Also, the oozing issue isn't happening for this one.

This is my favorite moisturizer. It absorbs into my skin (very dry) really quickly and leaves a soft, matte finish. The trick with this one is to use it sparingly -- a pea-sized drop is really enough.
