the first reviewer gave a great review. my only difference is that i wouldn't call this a navy, on me at least. on my skin, it appears more plummy. it looks purple, very very deep eggplant with plummy/reddish tones, not bluish tones. it is matte, no shimmer. i give it a 4 because i guess i would have liked it have a tiny bit of shimmer or more complexity. but all my girlfriends are lovin it!
i am not great at describing colors or nailpolishes in general, like many experts here, but this color is GORGEOUS and i adore it. definitely give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
gorgeous packaging again, smooth glossy black tube with the tiger print on the inside. screenqueen is a soft shimmery pink with a hint of gold and a hint of plum, it's moist and smooth, and i think this shade will prove to be quite versatile and easy to use, i love it so far!
love this shade! do not be intimidated by its apricot--orangey shade in the tube, it's gorgeous, it glides on sheer, but not too sheer, it imparts the perfect amount of 'apricot' color, with nice golden shimmer. the packaging is awesome, the tiger print on the wand's handle, all in all it's an excellent product!
I am by no means a fragrance expert, so I cannot offer a great description of the notes and the other science in this perfume. but I LOVE IT. i love this smell. it's warm and spicy, which is usually the kind of scent i gravitate towards. it smells kinda like coffee and aftershave--or some musky kind of men's scent, but in a very flattering way, it's great.....i love that it's a spicy smokey kind of scent, and i love it right now for fall/winter. my boyfriend noticed it too the first night i had it on, he asked me if i was wearing something different... update, after using for almost a year, still head over heels in love with this fragrance, cinnamon-y, and the drydown is almost a powdery musk. soft, but strong, really very tasty
only giving it a 4 because, i personally don't LOVE the shade, but i wore this a lot in high school before i started only wearing MAC fleshpot lipstick or myth lipstick. i loved this pink, it almost looks like it would be corally, which is scary to me, in the tube, b/c i can't do corals, but it doesn't come out like that. it is gorgeous, and very flattering on so many skin tones and lip colors, hair colors...etc...i think it's very versatile and can add a nice effect on top of or under any lipstick or other gloss, it's a good one of those mixer glosses, you don't necessarily need to wear it alone. it has a some decent shimmer in it too, not too wet looking, and nice and sticky and superrrrrrrr long lasting. terrific staying power as we all know with MAC glosses. if you are looking for a neutraly, not too bright or garish pink, this is the one! a good investment overall as it can be used with many other shades of makeup and of skin color/lip color. and to note, i voted to NOT buy it again because I am no longer a pinky lip wearer, that's the only reason why.
beautiful bottle, lovely scent, very very sweet though, very strong fruity tropical scent, with all these summer escada scents: ibiza hippie, pacific paradise, rockin rio, island kiss, etc...they all smell like smirnoff raspberry vodka, but in a good way....if that explains the scent at all..it's great, i love them all, perfect for summer, feel good, pick me up scent
i really liked using these, i like all of the crest whitestrips varieties and have had a lot of luck with all of them fortunately. i believe this variety is the one that comes in the bright blue plastic case with a built in mirror in the lid which is very convenient. great investment overall, no pain, beautiful whiteness, and it lasts for a long time.
packaging: good, very small and thin and light, portable, nice mirror, unfortunately, brush is too small and thin and sheds its hairs. Also lip gloss gets stuck on the mirror when the brush touches it after the compact closes colors: the colors are really nice, I was able to blend and use all 7 of them but TINT which is a dark reddish magenta stain, way too dark for me. But it gives a great mix of glaze, gloss, and stain, making it fun to play and mix the textures and finishes and colors, some glitter some opaque some sheer…etc….the colors are really nice and versatile alone or mixed. The best part is blending them the consistencies were nice and creamy but that feeling doesn’t last long and needed a lot of reapplying. I am currently using the single lip gloss in mango which is fullsize tube/wand and it’s much better than the palette’s glosses, maybe b/c of the wand application deposits more product and therefore lasts longer.

love this scent. my teenage brother wears it. very fresh and clean smelling, not fruity or musky, not heavy either. it's a very refreshing and 'bright' scent if that makes sense, i highly recommend this fragrance for a younger guy!
i love this e/l. i was very surprised, i was a mark rep and i didn't like many of their products, nothing was good enough. but the eyeliners are excellent! this is a mechanical pencil, twist up, retractable, in a clear tube so you can see how much you have left which is great! the black is perfect, very dark black, so smooth and creamy, doesn't drag, i use this everyday, it also works on the waterline which is important too, it doesn't fade easily. so easy to just twist up the bottom of the tube. and this is so cheap but this is seriously good quality!!

LOVE IT! my favorite eye m/u remover ever. it's a really great liquid one, nice bottle, easy application, 2 parts--you have to shake it up to mix it. it isn't greasy at all, it's very nice and soft, moisturizing, and it really works, takes off shadow primer and mascara in a flash, very fast working and smooth. doesn't leave gross residue, dries perfectly, i have no complaints! get it!
been using this for a couple weeks now, i have so many mascaras like so many of you other girls it's hard to fit them all in! anyway this is a pretty good one. I would purchase it again, I use it in black. I have naturally long lashes. this does a good job of emphasizing length, but more importantly, volume. it does noticeably add volume. the wand is fantastic, i love the wavey, hourglass shape of the applicator. it does volumize, but i'm giving it a 4 rating for a few reasons: one; it's a little too wet, and therefore, is prone to clumping on me. this is a mascara that i have to keep combing thru and thru after a coat because it makes some of my lashes gather. it is also really too wet to use on the bottom lashes, even when i do both eye's top lashes first. so it doesn't do the best job of spreading out my lashes, but it does pump them up. it doesn't curl or lengthen magnificently, which is fine, i like my mascaras to be different and do different things, and this is a good volumizer. I would purchase again because the applicator is nice and provides good application on the first coat. the only annoying thing and part of the reason i gave it a 4 is that it clumps on me sometimes on my longest lashes in the middle of the lash line, and no one likes that. maybe as it gets a little drier with use it will stop clumping.
i didn't like this product. the texture is hard to work with, difficult to blend, and a little chalky. the packaging is horrible too, whoever thought of making the tiny nail polish like bottle like that with a crappy thin brush...this just confirms my feelings on benefit, i really dislike their products and think they are really silly and impractical. the color looks nice in the bottle, a pale yellowy gold with gold shimmer, kinda iridescent shimmer so it was almost peachy/orangey shimmer too. it just really didn't last on me, i wouldn't put it on my eyes and the texture like i said wasn't easily workable. it wasn't creamy enough at all, i could tell right away that it wouldn't last when i put it on. i would suggest a powder highlighter or a real nice creamy one, not this 'liquid' garbage. same goes for highbeam highlighter, though i did like moonbeam much more than highbeam b/c its color is more natural and not as garish/frosty.
