This is more not as glossy as it is sparkly. When first applied it looks good but after it's worn off I end up with silver glitter around my mouth. I also find that the sparkles feel gritty on my lips after wearing for some time. I hate this gritty feeling. The colour is borderline on washing my MAC NC20 PPP complexion out, too, so I wouldn't repurchase.

The worst high-end mascara I have ever tried. Fortunately I tried a sample and didn't have to waste AUD48 on this rubbish. It did not live up to any of its claims. It does not volumise at all. The brush doesn't even look like it will volumise and the formula is too 'thin' to add any oomph to lashes. Also, I found the brush to hurt and pull at my eye lashes. Would not recommend and would not purchase.
This is such a raved about product I just had to try it. It's almost got cult status. Being in Australia, this is overpriced. However, a little bit goes a long way to add sheen and glam to the eyes so the pot will last forever. This colour is so versatile, suits almost all skin tones and can be used as a shadow and/or highlighter on the brow bone. You can apply thinly or thickly, with your finger or with a brush or felt-tip applicator and whatever way it looks good. It goes on smoothly and doesn't crease even if it's applied thickly and worn all day. I have been complimented when I wear this.
If I was only allowed to own one lipgloss, this would be it. My HG for sure. Ironically, it was the first gloss I bought and as I had nothing to compare to and became a gloss fanatic, I have tried many brands and shades, but this is still my all-time favourite. The shade suits many skin tones. It's glossy but not OTT. It's got a subtle sparkle and isn't too sticky on the lips but lasts fairly well. It also tastes nice but not fake, it's easy to apply and doesn't dry the lips out. I am a huge fan and could go on...
