I would describe this color as a bright wine most suitable for cooler skin tones. This is my favorite lip stick formula. It glides on smoothly and luxuriously and doesnt feel heavy or sticky. The lipstick stays put longer than most. The packaging is so pretty and princess-like. I love seeing it sit on my bathroom counter every day. I want to get more colors because this tone is too cool for me, I wish Too Faced would add a few more colors to the line up.
I just tried this for the first time based off great reviews. This stuff delivers. It deposits protein in your hair, which is essential if you bleach it like me (or if you're a vegetarian like me!) As soon as I started rinsing it off in the shower, I could tell my hair texture was different and better. Once dry, it feels stronger and more manageable. The stuff is super stinky though. And the 2nd step (conditioner) has a grandma throwback scent, but I just pretended I was getting my hair done by Dolly Parton in Steel Magnolias. I imagine that's how that salon would smell. Hey maybe that's weird but it makes the process more fun!
I used to like this product until I realized it doesn't stay on my face for more than hour. I have since switched to NARS. Shame because I loved the price and size of the Sephora disk!

I bought this off of QVC because they really made it look effective on the on-air presentation. It did not work for me though. I have long, fine, and limp hair down to my mid-back. I have tried using this every which way but every time my hair just came out annoyingly rough. I can usually run my fingers through my hair but not when this product is in. I saw no thickening effect...though my hair did become frizzier looking. Maybe this stuff works on short hair, but if you have long hair, I don't reccommend it.
I wouldn't really call this stuff lip gloss but rather lip balm with a hint of color. Either way...it's awful and despite the cheap price, there are so many better options out there. I'm wondering if I just got a bad batch but I got 5 of these (in Melon, Mocha, Frosting, Cherry, and Coconut) and they were all bad. They felt both sticky and greasy at the same time (hard to describe but bad.) Worst of all, they had a DISGUSTING smell (and it's not just me, 2 of my friends and my boyfriend all agreed when I had them smell them.) Also, all five flavors smelled very similar except for the mocha one which was just the grossest of the bunch. The only good thing about these is the really cute packaging. They are good for throwing in a purse, but I would never use them so what's the point? I'm thinking about emptying out the product and using the tins for other purposes.
