I have no 13. I have very pale skin but even for me the color is nearly a bit too bright! So if you don't have very pale skin I recommend the darker colors! I really love the texture, after you applied it, it feels like you wear nothing at all! The coverage is medium, so if you cover red spots with a concealer it will work great!!! However it gets cakey after some hours, so you have to re-apply it.
I bought the black one (Midnight in Paris). I like the texture, it is really easy to apply! Also it is waterproof. However I think it could be higher pigmented, because you need a thick line if you want it REALLY black. Also it needs some time until it is completely dry.
I have very pale skin but it matches perfectly. I use it to create a dolly look. It also stays the whole day even without foundation. Only "problem" is, that it is a very intensive color, so it happens easily that you put a bit too much on your face.
In my opinion it's effective if you want to remove dead skin from your lips. And it tastes fantastic! But sadly the oil doesn't stay long on your lips, especially because you automatically want to eat that sugar from your lips ^^''' Even if you try to remove the sugar gently with your fingers, you always also remove some of the oil. So I think if you want really soft lips who stay soft for a longer time, you should better use a regular lip balm. But if you need some peeling for your lips you can use this product.

I like the color selection, it's really everything + more then you ever wanted! I can understand the hype of this product since it is very cheap (I bought it for 10$ + shipping from their official webshop) and the quality is okay. But unfortunately many colors doesn't stay if you don't use an eye primer. Some of them I can't even apply without it! I think if you don't want to use it for every day, or just want to try out new colors and color combinations, I can recommend it to you. But the hype around this product is definitly because of the price and not because of the quality.
I like the texture, it's easy to apply. When I use it, I can apply the eye shadow really intensive and it stays the whole day, even cheap eyeshadow! And also very important for me, it fills the eye folds so the eyeshadow can't move into them. Btw the base is a bit shimmery. Since I only use shimmery and glittery eye shadow, it's perfect for me but I think for matte eye shadow it could be too shimmery.
This is the best Mascara I've ever tried! It is the only one in this price category I found, which doesn't make your lashes stick together! Also the black is a really deep black. However, if you want reeeally thick lashes you have to apply a few layers (I always apply the first layer, then wait a few minutes and then apply the second layer). But for everyday use it's perfect!
