I have to agree with stupidandcynical review below..I agree 100%. Cakey and does not blend well. I have acne prone combination skin. This just accentuated all the flaws instead of hiding. I was excited to try as it seems to be a loved product by many. Unfortunately this is not for me. Good luck to those who decide to try! hopefully you will be more lucky as the others.
This really is a red apple cheek red! I think it's unique because you can not find this color anywhere....and that is matte! it's a very bright and very, very pigmented color. I like it but I don't love it. I find this blush is hard to blend. You need to blend, blend, and more blending....not something I'd apply if I am in a rush. This also can stain a bit so heads up for when you swatch. it will look like you were playing with Kool-Aid ...Only a DAB is needed. I am tan skinned and anything more than a DAB of this product makes me look like a raggedy ann doll. This product will last me a lifetime! Since I use so little and have to blend it in I feel it doesn't look like I'm even wearing blush!.....just a natural flush. Depending on how you use this.

I am not "wowed" by this ...in comparison to the reviewers below. I have thick/coarse wavy ( dry *sigh*) long hair. This conditioner worked OK the first time using it but after continued use not so much. I don't feel it really moisturized or gave my coarse hair much of a "slip". I think it's just an "OK" conditioner. it works like any other average conditioner. Nothing mind blowing or a "must have" for me. I even changed up my shampoo to see if maybe the shampoo was drying my hair? but nothing changed even with that change. I have always loved Matrix Biolage ultra hydrating balm. I will have to go back. I was just open to a cheaper $ alternative.
a sheer plum/wine color with glitter. It's only a slight shimmer actually but when the color rubs off you're left with glitter! That is the only reason I took 2 points off. I love the color. it's sheer but still pigmented enough for a lip gloss. As said before you don't really notice the shimmer too overloaded but I was surprised....once the color rubbed off I saw a lot of glitter left on my lips. Would I buy again? maybe....the quality of the super lustrous is great! (love the other colors even more).

Packaging very cute green bottle! very vintage look to it. Starts off very smoky/woodsy like I just came back from a campfire. Then becomes a slightly sweet powdery scent....then powder/vanilla dry-down. If this sounds amazing to you! then go for it! I personally, was not a huge fan but that is because i am not fond of vanilla/powder dry downs.
Pretty color? yes. The color to me is a soft rosy brown. It doesn't have glitter or shimmer...but it does give off a frosty sheen to me. Which is why I gave this a low rating. I don't mind blushes with subtle shimmer...especially when the shimmer is not visible and doesn't stick to the skin. This color might work best for those with dry skin. I have combo/oily skin and this just accentuates pores. Too much sheen and frosty for my liking. My boyfriend also wasn't a huge fan of this blush either. He preferred another blush when I asked him to compare haha...
The pigmentation is nice. Not as dark as other liners out there. biggest CON for me is the smudges, smudges, and smudges. If I open my eyes the liner transfers to my top lid. I would not repurchase at all. Glides on easily and smoothly would be the only PRO thing about this. I'd rather use Milani (drugstore) eyeliners...staying power is amazing for a drugstore prod.
