Okay so im one of those people at the drug store that pops open lipsticks (you can hate me but i wanna see what ima buy before i do >:[ lol ) anyways i didnt buy this and im glad i didnt. Id consider this a sheer lipstick that feels like a balm. Anyways i popped one open and tried it on and the color pay off is awesome but my lips got SO dry (they arent sensitive and i havent had chapped lips for 2 or 3 years-im serious- and i wear nothing but matte Ruby woo from MAC) and i swear my lips hurt and were so dry when i wiped it off. i didnt really notice glitter. i was too busy piling on the balm lol maybe this just wasnt for me. and i didnt like that plastic see through cap. looks cheap.

packaging: 1 -you have to dip your finger in and then wipe it on yourself if you have nothing else. also the cap is hard to open sometimes. prive: 7$ for an overpriced crappy lip balm. it just sits their. i wipe it off and it did no moisturizing at all. it does glide on smoothly and it smells beautiful (strawberry one not rose- rose smells are gross) but it taste like straight up chemicals and wax. not sticky it just feels greasy and heavy wouldnt buy again the $1 cherry chapstick is the best ive tried so far

honestly a piece of paper can do do what this does. youre really just paying for the portability which i dont care to pay 7$ for. they do last awhile but i always for got to use em. they do take of oil but so does a napkin lol so no i wont repurchase
i love this lip balm mainly for that tingly minty feeling it gives my lips. Its a lip balm so dont expect miracles but it does help soothe my cracked lips and moisturize them while its on. but preventing flakes or getting rid of that? no not really. i have to scrub my lips for that. but ive never found a chap tick to do so. i think this is a little overprized for a chap stick but so it the Rosebud salve from sephora (and thats crap, crap that taste like wax). this doesnt really taste like wax. it has a chemical taste but it isnt horrible like the rose salve. when u first buy this it doesnt glide on too easily either. it tugs on your lips. but maybe after like 20 uses it starts softening up a bit.id buy again but id probably stick with my trusty 1$ Cherry Chapstick

you dont need much. maybe like a tiny dab on each eyelid and your good. it goes on clear. but looks like a beige color in the tube. some people say its greasy but i believe those are just the sample botles. ive had both and ive noticed the difference. my full size will last me a year at least. it goes on silky not greasy. it does not crease and it makes my shadow colors much truer (like how they look in the pot). i like using this under my cream shadows. it really holds them there and keeps them from creasing. I like the genie bottle but i have the tube and theyre both the same except less product is wasted this way. overall its a great shadow primer. much better then the smashbox one.

okay so lets get this straight.I have combo skin thats dry right now (winter). My skin is not sensitive to anything usually until THIS! like the review a few posts below it seems my skin can handle this but in small doses and it needs breaks. It makes my skin look really natural and pretty. It applies sheerly and its buildable. its not too yellow and its not too pink. covers my redness and its great in that sense. doesnt make my skin oily. (im a neutral-fair-yellowish understone NC 15-20 and i got it in 182 and it matches perfectly). BUT omg my i cant stand wearing it more then two hours! my skin gets so itchy and i can feel it on my face! i just usually dampen a towel up and refresh my skin by patting it. or add moisturizer on because i feel its extremely drying. I dont wear anything on my skin and im acne prone (just get like 3 tiny bumbs once a month or so not too bad) and after wearing this two days in a row i broke out on my cheeks with cystic pimples which i never get. But i wore it one day a week and my skin was okay still felt very drying. i think im just going to try the laura mercier. I dont think thiss product has healthy ingredients for my skin.
Idk what it is but this is the only hot pink besides Nars Funny Face that suits my light neutral yellowy skin the best. I'm usually into bright blue based red and been looking for that perfect pink I feel comfy in like I do in red and I have found it. It's like a blue based fushia. Opaque. No taste. Pleasant smell. Not overly glossy and not overly drying (matte). Idk why people compare it to impassioned. They are in no way alike

I have been searching years for this! I'm a MAC Ruby Woo girl but I've been searching. For that perfect pink that's the shade of a healthy natural lip to wear with dark eyes or lazy days! And I've found it! I can describe it as a rosy brown more on the rosy pink side. It's a very natural pretty color. Looks beautiful with my medium fair yellowy skin. The pencil glides on so smoothly and is nowhere near as drying as ruby woo. It's really matte but it doesn't dry my lips out . It feels velvety on my lips. I don't like the jumbo pencil packaging because lots of product is wasted sharpening it! They should do it like Lipsurgence twist tube. Other than that it's perfection!
I'm usually into bold red lips but I've been searching for that perfect pink to wear on my lazy days that looks like my lip color but my lip color at its best. And I found it. I have somewhat pigmented lips and one coat of this pink sheer lipstick perfects my natural color! I love it! It's nothing like impassioned or girl about town because it isn't opaque. It's sheer. It's a glossy but not too shiny finish. Just looks like healthy lips. I'm used to the dryness of ruby woo and this texture doesn't bother me at all where most non-matte lipsticks bug me. It's not really long wearing and it's not build-able at all. But I still love it.
I simply and irrevocably am in love with this. It's in a roller ball packaging type wile thing which doesn't leak (just a smidge in the cap but its pretty secure) . I think it's worth the price because you dont need much so a vile will last you a good 1-2 years. It's an awesome cheek stain. im a medium fair (more fair) with yellowish undertones to my skin and it looks beautiful. It looks like a dark blood red on your finger but when you blend it out on your cheek it gives you a really nice natural glow (specially if you wear liquid foundation it blends oh so nicely-or none at all like me) i have combo skin and ive never had a problem with it drying before i could blend it out. it stains my finger but its easy to wash off with soap. beautiful dark reddish lipstain. make sure you add balm under or over it (it makes it easier to blend on your lips too). overall it is a pretty great product. im a lip/cheek stain whore-der and its my HG (idk what HG means but im guessing "go to" product lol) lasting power on cheeks-til you wash it off pretty much. lasting power on lips-til you eat and even then youll see a little still left)
