I don't like this. I've changed my mind about it a couple of times but right now I solidly don't like it. Here's a situation where I think it would be great: you have kind of pinky toned skin (don't know about the other colors but ivory is very very pink toned), your skin is pretty dry--maybe it would be better for winter?, you don't need to set it with a powder (again dry skin). But on me, it looks really cakey, it emphasizes every little hair follicle on my face, and it's just too moisturizing. I have oily skin so it's like a layer of thick foundation and then I set with a powder so it's even thicker. I think this would work if you have dry skin because your skin would probably absorb some of the moisture so you end up with kind of a less cakey foundation.
This stuff goes a LONG way, I'll give it that much. I put a tiny pump on my hand and it stretched all the way up my arm. It also has excellent coverage, and it's not too dewy or too drying. If only it came in another color, I'd love it :/ but alas it is way too dark for my skin. and also the undertones just don't work with my skin. oh well! maybe I will give triple the solution a try.
I just got this on sale for $13 on the Urban decay website and it came today and I'm so excited! the colors are gorgeous!! and they are so pigmented and amazing. this is my first urban decay anything, actually it's also my first experience with high/mid-end eyeshadow and it's GLORIOUS! you barely touch the colors and your finger comes away shimmery and gorgeous. LOVE this. I would definitely buy more of their stuff, I don't know how I'm gonna be able to stand my old crap from cvs and walgreens now hahaha also I love it that much more because there's an adorable chihuahua and a cat on the cover of the palette. sooo cute. I love smog, half baked and twice baked, smog and half baked are lovely lid colors for just a simple look or they can be all combined for a smokey eye sort of look, then there's minx, urb and gunmetal, all of which are lovely and light enough to be all over lid colors but gunmetal and minx could both also function as subtle crease colors if you had the right lid color to go with them. gunmetal and twice baked might be nice as eyeliners too. I love the eyeliner it comes it, it's very pigmented and soft but not too soft, glides on like a dream. The primer is very glittery! If you don't like glitter you won't like it, I like it although I discovered yesterday there's no real reason why you need it or any primer for that matter. The shadows are very pigmented and long lasting even with nothing at all under them.
I picked up a sample of this at sephora and I love it! I used it today and it's amazing coverage, you only need the tiniest bit to cover EVERYTHING, it goes on nice and dry so it kind of prevents oil for us oily/combo people, so far it's lasted about 7 hours without moving and to top it all off, it comes in a shade that is light enough for me! I LOVE it. It's on my birthday list but that's a month away so I will probably just buy it for myself before then.
I like this! I just bought it today and the color is very nice. it's very adjustable, I notice that it's a lot more reddish toned when I put it on. I daresay I bought pink but on my skin it looks coral. I really like it, it goes on very nicely, its much more wearable than it appears in the pan, seems to have good lasting power so far. I would buy it again, the only problem is that mine is really hard to open I have to be really careful, I already nicked it with my thumb nail :/
Conditioner -Organix - Moroccan Argan Oil Renewing Treatment

I really like this stuff! I have weird hair, I haven't colored it and I literally heat style like once a year and it still continues to be dry and kind of foofy and frizzy and this doesn't completely eliminate it but it makes my hair feel really soft and it's much easier to brush through while wet. It just feels really nice on your hair and it works! the longer you have to leave it in, the better it works so make sure you wait at least 3 minutes to rinse it out.
I just picked this up today and I quite like it! I've been dreaming of it for a loooong time and I finally took the plunge, it's very nice. It's a very very neon color but I like it and it's a tad drying as others have said but it does have excellent staying power and it's very matte. I have no complaints so far!
I'm sad this is getting such bad reviews! I really like it! I think it's really nice and it does lengthen extremely well. It doesn't volumize much really but it's not as bad the supershock max mascara, that stuff has absolutely no volumizing power what-so-ever. This is really good if you're just looking to make your eyelashes super super long.
I have come to the conclusion recently that I just do not care all that much for lip gloss. I like the smooth somewhat sticky feeling of lipstick but lip gloss is just way too gooey for me. I just don't like the feel of it at all, I feel like it's coming off as soon as I touch anything. It's also not very pigmented. I feel like I should still give this gloss four lippies though because it does everything it promises, it's like 2.29 and the packaging is very nice. I think it's a great size, I like that it's small versus the like pencil length lip-glosses others make. It has a little pigmentation, pretty average for lip gloss. I think if I was into lip glosses I would like this a lot! I have me and my ice cream and a more nudey/peachy pink as well and they go over various light pink lipsticks/liners very nicely! I do like the look and the seem to have some staying power, if only I could stand the gooey-ness!
Just swapped for this and it's beginning to seem like the first shimmer strips I ever got, the regular green eye ones, were just a dud for me because I've now swapped for this and the nude palette and love both of them. The colors in this are very bright and pigmented! I can't wait to try out different looks with this! some of them are a little bit more powdery than others and some are a little more packed down and hard to get at but overall it's great quality!
I just got this in a swap and it's GORGEOUS. I'm already in love. I just have to get up the guts to wear it outside, it's such a bold color. gorgeous blood redish shade, great matte finish just as promised, not too drying, I couldn't be happier with it!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - I'm Getting Sunburned
sam23 8/3/2012 11:10:00 AM
oook so Idk, what is wrong with mine but I'm fairly confident I just got a weird one because I have another trio (silent treatment) and it does such a great smokey eye, I thought I should get another. But the crease color in my silent treatment, like... It literally behaves like a loose powder when I get a brush nears it. It's just like "POOF" eyeshadow. everywhere. so that's the one downfall. I could still use it like as a bit of a liner, but it's not gonna work as a crease color, it like.. eats the entire gold area on my eyelid when I tried, even if I tap the brush off first. sooo oh well, I can still use them all individually. I would still buy other trios, considering you're paying $1 for each shadow, it's not that huge of a deal if one is bust.
Hasnt worked at all and my nail Polish is still tacky days after using this.
Just like the luminoso blush, I looooooooove it :) It's very pigmented, it's shimmery but I don't really see that too much when I put it on, it's just a nice light pink, kind of neutral toned, I think without the goldish shimmer it would be cool toned. I like it a lot, it's been lasting pretty well. As usual, the packaging on these blushes is poo! and the brush that comes with it is worthless. but I'm very happy with this stuff!
Snagged this for $5, I feel lucky that orange lips work on me! It looks kind of like muted red which is what I like. You would think since my skin has warm (which is red/pink so we're clear) undertones it would look weird but it doesn't. The only dislike I have with it is that it's not exactly moisturizing.
