This was my HG lipstick until they changed the shade. It was creamy but not too glossy (I prefer my lipstick to be a bit more matte than most), a perfect pinkish neutral shade. Now it's gone, so my overall rating reflects their terrible mistake. Hey cosmetics companies: How about when you make a new color, you INTRODUCE IT AS A *NEW* COLOR? The price was worth it for what you got, but I can't recommend the new incarnation as worth it anymore.
This is one of my all-time favorite fragrances, if not my favorite. It smells very fresh, clean, and youthful, while still seeming somewhat feminine and somehow upscale. My only complaint is that it is a pricier brand, and there are lots of fantastic fragrances out there for less than half the price. However, it's still worth buying.
