I bought Red Carpet Addict several days ago Duty Free Niagara Falls so I don't know if it's closeout never had a Dior lipstick before. But man o man I love the package it's too nice to keep in a handbag so I will use if up pretty fast I predict. On one hand it's sheer on the other it has a nice stain to it. $26 at the duty free window but I live in the stix in South Carolina so the price may not have been great but I have so few opportunities to shop for HE merchandise meaning I order Sephora Nordstrom etc but not a chance to see it until it arrives. HTH
This is the first time to buy a MAC lippie *with* the amplfied formula. I think it's great. extremely creamy yet easy to apply. I put the MAC spice lip liner or I will use WnW 666. It's a very wearable My Lips But Better shade. I am way blonde fair skin and lashes this shade flatters. I am holding out on 5 lippies to see how it does wearing it during the day (just got it) I will update :-)
I'm going on a 2 week vacation and I won't have the time to reach in my purse to reapply lip color. And I'll be in NYC 4 days so I need something to wear that is fashionable. This is it. I waited and just am pleased now I have it, It's not as dangerous as it looks in the package. I got Flushed 200. I actually give it five lippies!

I bought this product in a nude color and got a thumbs up so I knew what the texture would be. I saw this in Style magazine September as one of the 5 lippies you should own in pinks for fair skin and had a $2 off coupon ah rationalization! however I have no shades like this and I really like it! not bad for a drugstore!!
I like it. it's hard to tell the shades though. now i have time to write more sorry: I bought it on the spin that the texture would be good. it's not worth it I read the reviews people wrote yeah I agree with them more. The shade I got looks like NARS deep throat or orgasm in the container however its icky on the skin
this gave me a headache and I'm not a headache person. if I ever wore this in public well I won't. I got a sample of this from Nordstrom in my package. Mean it, I never had as strong of a physical reaction to anything like I did to this scent. I actually think I'll throw this away...

as my friend said, this is not a Japanese product that will fade dark spots, etc. I think Maybelline repackaged its tinted moisturizer and got on the BB marketing train. It's an ounce so I'll use it up pretty fast. The silver lining is spf 30. Other than that I feel like I got duped by the BB craze.
I way prefer Stila Kitten. I *like* a shimmery product.. I just got it so I will try not to judge too hard. I live in the sticks now so there's no MAC counter until Savannah which is 1 hour almost 1/2 away. I ordered it from Nordstrom they are like Sephora they take back anything. Sigh
ladies how can you go wrong with $3? it's what another person said it's good for fair skin. I'll have to pull it out I've forgotten about it.

Sadly I didn't like it "Don't believe the hype" should be my motto so I'm too poor (sorry) to buy the YSL lip stain and was hoping (mistake) this would be a doppleganger. it's like what the other reviews said it's not 10 hrs and not a stain it's weak but what's freaky is you swatch it on your hand and it's like there forever. The Maybelline people? see what is making it stay on your hand and not on your lips.

I can't blame this product totally b/c 3 years ago I lived in Dallas proper and had access to all kinds of great stores. Now I DON'T and I have to go by what I think the swatch on the website looks like. I ordered two shades up thinking I would be in the right range. I was wrong. More mad at life which has put me here in SC with no shopping than my friendly UPS man, I sigh packaged it up and sent it to Sephora. Sorry I can't give a proper review.
i almost bought this because the name of the shade made me laugh. i didn't buy it but I bet I will I own sooooooo many reds
That's the biggest kitten compact I've ever seen..and I like it I like it..a lot!!! Seriously the hype is true love it when that happens. Perfect for some of the shades Kevin Aucoin suggests in his makeovers. It's got pigment. It's a no brainer color. I am having to relearn my makeup from Dallas TX to HHI SC (been about 3 years) it's a beach basically no one cares you're wearing flip flops every every where so you may get a ped but proper makeup this is a lazy person's paradise! Now what do I do with all my makeup I bought at Sephora Nordstrom time to get swapping!
