I bought this product after i read loads of reviews. i didnt want to waste money again because of impulsive shopping lol. anyway, i love this concealer because of it's packaging. very hygienic and i can control the amount i want to use. i wish it was transparent though. if you want to apply concealer under your eyes, it should be a shade lighter than your skintone (well at least for me). i bought ivory 1 which i thought is a shade lighter then my skintone. it was lighter than i expected so i got bummed out. (ill get beige next time urgh). despite the slight tone error, it did cover my pimple scars. the trick is to PAT the product on the blemish and just soften the edges so it'll look blended. i tried this and asked my bf if he could see my pimple scar under my nose, he said "what scar?". LOL. so for me that proves that this concealer works really well. staying power is ok. it's very humid here in the Philippines so it's not exactly good weather for make up. hehe. one more thing, if you have a BULGING POINTY humongous zit, i suggest you dont put concealer on it. it'll emphasize the zit and it will look crusty. you can put green primer to counter the redness and put a sheer liq foundation on it. it will still be visible but at least it'll look better than nothing on.
I have a dozen empty tubes of this. I just love to keep them cos I know there will be an evolution to the packaging. I love seeing the change through the years. yes. years. anyway, i love the tint, the feel and the scent of this lip balm (hint of shine is fine). I have fair skin (part asian, part spanish) and when I put this on, it gives me that instant glow. People would think the red tint is my natural lip pigmentation and the shine was just from a lip gloss.:) when they released the new formula with the tiny iridescence in them, i kinda threw me off. (I only wear glittery stuff during night outs). but on my lips, theyre not that visible unless you're all over my face. lol. still has that scent, tint, and feel that i love. it's not that expensive too. :)

(Rasberry) Im working now but I've used this product since I was in 6th grade! yup2x im crazy about lip stuff since 12. back then the pigmentation is great. it gave me a hint of healthy natural pink with gloss and it would leave my lips supple and smooth too. then eventually I noticed that the tint got lighter. it would also leave my lips a tad bit dry. i dont think it's aging that's causing this (LOL). i mean, im only 22 and i dont smoke or drink or whatever that might affect my skin or lips. idk. maybe they changed the formula? BUT the scent! oooh smells like candy paradise. people around me would notice the delicious scent. the scent kept me buying and it brings me back to the good old days where disney channel actually featured good shows. (hehe)
I have the huge ass bottle of this scent. Im not exactly a fan of this perfume but I love the lotion cos the scent sticks to my skin. anyway, the scent is ok but I find it really strong. and I mean the so strong- I- can- taste- it type. seriously. I spray it and i can almost taste it's contents. At least that's how I'll know it's original. There are a lot of fake ones being sold around these days. the scent sticks to my clothes even after they're washed. maybe i need a stronger detergent or a different laundry lady?? My mom loves this so i would definitely get one again.... for her.
I have the Ocean Blue. I like the combination of the quad. BUT it's a bit chalky so it falls out of the eye area where I want to apply it on. I kinda like the brush cos it kinda helps in blending (dont like the sponge). pigmentation is ok. I wouldnt buy it again. it didnt really wow me.

I love the color and the pigmentation. Staying power is long (surprisingly). maybe cos I use a lip brush too. It dries my lips though so I need to put some tinted lip balm over it. I get a lot of compliments wearing this lipstick. The smell doesn't bother me. Reminds me of the scent of clay dough when I was little.
