Lip Gloss -Flirt - Squeeze Me Super Shiny Lipgloss

These look really great in the tube, but w/ the exception of Mighty Aphrodite which is a staple now(a shocking bright pink perhaps similar to NARS Schiap) I would not buy at all. There is so little color, I don't feel they would even alter the natural lip tone at all-for gals afraid of gloss or super bright colors, they might be ok, but otherwise, go buy a Lipglass.
Plz read other Eye Cake reviews I have doen for further info but suffice to say they are SO awesome! Mocha colors as follows all shimmer slightly peach toned pale nude burnished copper light to med rust w/ some gold to it deep, righ brown w/ violet sparkle (super cool) peachy taupe
Loooovin the Eye Cakes (plz see other reviews This one was really interesting in particular as it made my eyes look incredibly feline. Colors as follows (all shimmer) muted lime w/ gold shimmer taupe w/olive tone also w/ gold slightly chartreuse tinged gold yellow blackened smokey olive w/ gold sparkles (amazing liner) burnished brown w/olive tones
Again, plz do see my other reviews on these for further info (just love 'em) I opened the Peaches today (it's 50 degrees in Feb here in WI) and OMG! Spring HAS arrived-amazingly beautiful colors-if you get just one Cake, let this be it! However, the texture on this is a bit different than any of the others, somewhat resembling MAC Lustre shadows-warning if you don't like those, you won't like this Cake. Colors as follows (all shimmer) lovley sherbety pink w/ gold shimmer Pale peachy copper light tangerine w/ gold shimmer peachy nude light sunny yellow
If you happen to read my other reviews of these, you will see that I love 'em-have had no problms w/ pigment at all but am using them wet. Colors in Jade are as follows (all being shimmer) Golden Mint Pale Apple w/ gold shimmer pale turquoise also w/ gold Sea green w/ a bit of gold sparkle to it light bright blue (very similar to MAC Icebox)
In general I really like the Eye cakes overall-I know they havbe gotten a lot of flak for not being pigmented but I have been using them wet (w a #6 Taklon brush)and am a huge fan (so much so that the second the 3 newest came out, I HAD to have 'em all). Brown Eyes colors as follows (all shimmer) Muted silvery lilac med. silver plum silver blackened plum red sparkle (sim to MAC Beauty Marked) pale lavander pink Overall awesomes frm me!

Blue Eyes colors as follows (all shimmer) Light Taupe/ light golden nude/ green tinged taupey tobacco color/ Bright deep blue/ Taupe-doeskin-cafe au lait type. supposedly designed to make blue eyes look bluer, altho I fely it made mine mopre green than anything. Overall awesomes frm me!
I have to agree w/ Speakerpunk (who is a doll and swapped me half of the set) on the long lasting quality of these! They made it all day just as vibrant as when put on. I didn not however find them to be all that blendable and found that tho the lilac color didn't take a ton to make it true to the vial, the green did. It took about 4 dips to do my lids and I had to BLOT it on rather than brush or it was really uneven-maybe this would be a product better for samll areas at a time? However, I would definitely buy these again if they were singles (the green is TO DIE FOR) as they are worth a little more effort to put on!
Beautiful butter yellow (not chalky at all like some similar shades) w/ shimmer-great texture, awesome pigment!
Beautiful rose shimmer-great texture, alas exactly the same as BB Rosegold!
Raspberry soda complete w/ the fizz.
THIS is amazing indeed. If you like the scent of AG, you willl love this already-if you haven't tried AG, this conditioner is worth a shot anyhow as it is incredibly moisturizing, doesn't weigh down (and I have very fine, dry, color treated hair BTW). Really a HG and a little goes a long way so it's actually pretty economical as well!
The packaging on this is just adorable but not so sure it's functional-doesn't sit well-the top keeps wanting to flip back down or the whole thing tip over. Just a minor inconvenience. I found the peach shade to be a bit difficult-may need to paly w/ it more; can't yet tell if I can get more color wet or dry. The pink is very pigmented but blends nicely. This product may be a bit dry and thus wasteful tho!
As w/ the Gel pallates the blush in these is awesome for either lip or cheek-sheer but can be built up. The glosses are very, very sheer and almost colorless, but not so bad on top of a lipstick or the gel blush colors.

I have a couple of these now-the gel blush is great, a bit sheer, but overall a hit-the eye colors do NOT work for me on the lids themselves (crease like mad) but are ok on the upper portion as a highlight and do well as blush also or a matte lip (the not as long lasting on the lip). These would be great for either a dramatic or natural gal.
